I use DOSbox with the DFend GUI system, and it works fine unless I want to start the game in full screen. My resolution is usually the 1024x780, so it shouldn't be a problem right? Any help on this? :-\

ALT + ENTER causes the DosBox to freeze up and then crash. As does setting DFend to start in Full Screen Mode.

I've tried all rendering methods, still crashes, no matter which game I'm playing. Master of Orion, Sensible Soccer, Police Quest, etc..
