FFVII Game window much bigger than monitor size
« on: 2019-03-01 23:24:11 »
This is my first post, please let me know if I am formatting anything improperly.
Anyways, whenever I launch FFVII from 7th heaven in windowed mode, everything looks and works normal, if quite a small size. However, whenever I launch FFVII in full screen mode, there is first a very high-pitched beep (which is also present when I play it in windowed mode) and then the game displays, but I can only see roughly an eighth of the screen, as shown below which is a screenshot of the signature EIDOS intro screen.

Any help appreciated, if there is any more information that I can provide in order to be more useful I would be glad to provide it.

Thanks in advance!

I believe this is a DPI issue, i had the same one. Right click whichever EXE your using and select properties. Then on the compatibility tab tick the box that says Disable DPI scaling (May vary depending on Windows version)
