[ct-user] CTWIN - full screen

I have been battling the same problem and I just logged on to share
my experiences. 

I am working on a friend's computer for the contest. It's a Dell
Latitude with a 800 X 600 maximum screen resolution and Win98 SE.
When I used the -VGA switch the bottom of the CT window isn't on the
screen in the window mode or full screen mode. So this switch option
isn't valid for this computer.

I've downloaded the latest video drivers and checked the bios and
nothing helped.

I found there is a Function-F7 on the keyboard called Font. This
changes the size of the DOS window by increasing the font size. When
I toggled the font size the CTWin window occupies the entire screen
and eliminates the black boarder. The font isn't the greatest and
I'm trying to change that now.

Hope this helps.

Laptop has Win2K. When I installed CTWIN, I can't get a full screen.
Here is
what I have done so far.
Use -vga on start line. That helped a lot.
When in full screen I get most of the screen covered with the
program with a
black surround. But the fonts are not the clearest. It seems
When I hit Alt-Enter the fonts look good, I get all the CTWIN info,
but I
can't seem to get it to fill the screen. I have the Windows desktop

My settings are:
Display options - Full Screen
Font - Raster Fonts - 8 x 12
Layout - Screen buffer - 80 x 50, Window size - 80 X 50, Window
Position 44
x 44

Any recommendations to either change the font and get a larger
screen when
in the full screen mode or how to fill the screen when in the Window
