    Hi There,

    I've just upgraded my Macbook (still on a white macbook) have the 2ghz, with 4gb or Ram and it has the newest video chip in.

    However, i am using parallels to run windows xp, but i am finding that some of my fav games (theme hospital and c&c tiberium suns) only run in a very small window in the middle of the screen.. It makes no difference if i am set to run in full screen, coherence mode or in a window.

    Am i missing something fundamentally simple to get them to play full screen??

    HELLLP Please

    Tom :)

    Im also running 10.5.6

    A lot of older games could only run in specific resolutions. Many only let you choose 640x480, 800x600 or 1024x768.

    I don't know if, in those situations, Parallels will let you scale it up to full screen or not.

    I had the same issue with Diablo II. I'm limited to 800x600 unless I move over to Boot Camp.
