Old RPG Game Full Screen ?

Archived from groups: comp.sys.laptops (More info?)

I just installed Might and Magic 6 and 7 on a ToshibaTecra 8000 laptop
running Windows XP Pro. ( Fat32) Everything works
fine except that I can't get the game screen to full screen. Using the
F4 key which is supposed to toggle from
windowed to full screen just causes the background (desktop) to go
black and reapear, the game screen stays the same size.

I've already tried running in 640 x 480 under compatibility mode and
changing the screen resolution in display
preferences and neither works.

Any suggestions?

    search for a DOS emulator called "dosbox" at sourceforge.net
