Hi, i have a problem with Dosbox, when iswitch to full screen. In this case dosbox switchs its orientation from landscape to portrait mode, i.e. i have to turn the monitor by 90 degrees to see the corect pic.
What am i doing wrong?

whoa :blink:
i don't think that problem will be in dosbox. does it happen in other fullscreen applications too?
it might be something "wierd" with your monitor for specific resolution and refresh rate, since you see everything ok in desktop resolution.
try setting different resolution in dosbox.cfg
keep 4:3 ratio (for example fullresolution= 800x600)

Make sure you go in fullscreen before typing the command to run the game (i.e while still in the command prompt). I sometime gets strange errors when I try to switch to fullscreen after I run the program.
I'm on a hot streak... Literally.
