Today I was trying out the disk version of Star Trek 25th Anniversary and I noticed that the screen of the GOG version seems rather stretched out despite that both games should be at the same resolution.

I tried modifying it in the Dosbox options menu and the conf file itself, putting in the standard resolution size I use for the disk version of Star Trek 25th Anniversary with the expectation that that should solve the situation but the weird "stretching" remains.

Now that I know that the screen is stretched I can't ignore it anymore.

Does anyone here know what causes it and what can be done to resolve it?

I solved the problem!

I found the solution surprisingly enough while going through some reviews of Star Trek 25th Anniversary on Steam as someone else apparently also had some issues with the screen size.

And i made some changes in config file -dosbox_stjr.conf- ( it can be found in the game dir.) to wide the screen

output=overlay ---- you can put -ddraw- if you got green dots on screen edges.
scaler=advmame2x ---- makes picture a bit softer
aspect=false ---- try setting -true- if screen is too wide
cycles=34000 ---- optimal speed for me

The key here was aspect. When I set it to "true" the window in which either Star Trek 25th Anniversary or Judgment Rites was run was no longer stretched out.
