I had picked up MOO1 another place then got MOO1/MOO2 here, and with the DOSBOX settings that came with MOO1 here, well, I did the settings myself for the MOO1 I got another place and, they are much better (IMO) than the ones that comes with MOO1 here.

Specifically, use:

fullscreen=false
fulldouble=false
fullresolution=1920x1080
windowresolution=1248x936
output=overlay

(This for 1366x768 resulution... might need something else for other resolutions.)

With the settings from GOG on this one, the game comes up in fullscreen with the bottom part of the screen blank and the game squished from side to side, and the window not very big. With the settings above, the fullscreen has some black space at either side (but, not that much), but the game is not squished and in the right proportion, and the window (hit Alt-Enter to switch) is almost as big as the fullscreen. I played mucho MOO1 before I got MOO2, and played most of it with the full-sized window from the settings above.

The MOO2 settings are fine on my system.
Good.
So, any ideas what the best resolution settings would be for a monitor with natural 1920x1080? I tried the setting above and there is some black space on the right. Way better than the origial, though.

10x in advance.

Unless you're using an old CRT monitor therer's supposed to be black borders, since MoO was not made for widescreen monitors. The alternative is a stretched image which really looks ugly.

Hi, I started with WaltKunz' settings (thank you Waltkunz!) and found these settings to work for full screen 1920x1080.

fullscreen=true
fulldouble=false
fullresolution=1920x1080
windowresolution=1920x1080
output=overlay

I also kick my cycles setting way up. I think DosBox "auto" runs at like 3000

cycles=20000

5-6000 cycles are enough. A very high setting is not good if your processor is on the weak side. More than sufficient, with perhaps a bit of a margin, does nothing for the game as it is turn based.
