Rise of Nations help? Game does not play in full screen? Windows 7 Edition Home Premium.

I installed the birth of the United Nations, the original game on my computer to windows 7 Home premium and will not play the game in full screen. She always cut the sides of the black vertical column set. I tried everything: image format, right-click and do different stuff with the properties, nothing seems to work. It may be a problem with the compatibility? If so, what can I do about it?

    Thank you very much!   At your suggestion, I've selected out, burn to disc, DVD.  A window shows requiring Save have *.wmv.  OK, reluctantly saves.  Automatically opens first.  Preview has no audio.

    Instead of burning to disc, I chose Edit in first.  The preview has the video and audio.  Engraving option asked under wmv.  BUT by selecting the tab burn, then disc, dvd, part took place smoothly and dvd resulting contains actually the audio and the video.  Yes!

    She should not be incompatible and hard, but I could never have succeeded without help.

    Thanks again.

  • Firefox does not open in full screen on the task bar and I have to go over it to see the web page.

    Firefox does not open in full screen on the task bar and I have to go over it to see the web page.

    Firefox window is sometimes "off screen" somehow. Often, you can force it to appear on the screen by right clicking on the thumbnail image just above the taskbar and choose expand. Does it work?

    A possible cause for this is that the file that stores the positions and sizes of window is corrupt. You can delete this file and Firefox will return to standard window resizing.

    #1 method: If you can get a zoomed window:

    Open the settings folder (AKA Firefox profile) current Firefox help

    • button "3-bar" menu > "?" button > troubleshooting information
    • (menu bar) Help > troubleshooting information
    • type or paste everything: in the address bar and press Enter

    In the first table of the page, click on the view file"" button. This should launch a new window that lists the various files and folders in Windows Explorer.

    Leave this window open, switch back to Firefox and output, either:

    • "3-bar" menu button > button "power".
    • (menu bar) File > Exit

    Pause while Firefox finishing its cleanup, then rename xulstore.json to something like xulstore.old. If you see a file named localstore.rdf, rename this to localstore.old.

    Launch Firefox back up again. Windows normally appear again?

    #2 method: If you can not get a Firefox window for all:

    Close Firefox by right clicking the icon in the taskbar > close all windows.

    Using the Run dialog box (windows key + R) or the start search bar menu type or paste the following and press Enter to drill down to the profiles folder:


    Here you can see a folder - in this case, double-click that - or more than one case - in this case, double-click on in what looks like the most recently updated.

    Scroll down and rename xulstore.json to something like xulstore.old. If you see a file named localstore.rdf, rename this to localstore.old.

    Launch Firefox back up again. Windows normally appear again?

    Then, to re - light bars, you can use one of the following methods to view the list of the toolbar, and then select the desired bars it:

    To activate the menu bar, toolbar bookmarks or other bars, click it in the list.



    Hello Chris

    You probably get this from all angles, but the most recent update for Flash Player ( JUST DO NOT WORK CORRECTLY.

    I keep my browsers updated and as of today (5 September 2011) Flash WORKS in "small pane in the browser" mode (for example, in Youtube) BUT VA VIRGIN AS SOON AS LARGER.

    Note that overlay the legends and pause / graphic reading DO all the work - it's only video decompression that is not - leave black and white screen.

    It's FireFox 7.0 both last Google Chrome: I carefully uninstalled & replace Flash form the links you have posted here and IT STILL DOES NOT WORK in full screen.

    You must release really NO new version of automatic update code like this that are not properly tested: it has mucked up watching a video for millions of people unnecessarily.

    Because of the new accelerator support?   who knows.    It's a living environment, the Toshiba Satellite Pro (we do not have all go and buy new PC every 10 weeks like you developers do) and it has a P4 and the integrated graphics card Intel 82852 standard: perfectly fine until last week.     But it has 64 MB graphic and I see that now 'requires' 128 MB?       You can not just make assumptions like that: I bet that there are 50 million more RAM VGA PC there with 64 MB (or less).

    Adobe is a great product, but it is a complete and total ball * ls - up like we in England is called: Please excuse my Anglo-Saxon franchise.    Sorting, please.

    Mike, London, exasperated

    Hi Mike,.

    You could run into problems of video acceleration here.  I apologize and we do not have an internal bug against it (bug #2950542), which will be fixed in the next version of Flash Player.  In the meantime, you can try turning off hardware acceleration to see if that makes a difference?

    How to disable or enable hardware acceleration?

    Thank you

  • Wallpaper does not adapt to full screen

    original title: image size

    My pcture does not cover the entire screen area. I show a notch about 1 1/2 "on each side. How to enlarge the photo?

    Thank you very much for your answers. Allow me to clarify my situation. I'm dealing with a new Toshiba laptop computer. I can't say that this condition exists since the beginning. The image that I'm interested in right now shows a blank black 1 1/2 "wide on each side. My screen resolution is set to 1024 X 768. Where should I go now?

    Question Of Ken Blake , I have a few other questions.
    1. on what requests the image is not covered the entire screen?
    There could be a possibility that the size of the image might be low.
    2. have you tried opening the photo in question using different applications?
    If so, the problem persists?
    Also try opening the image on another computer.
    3. do not you upload the image on the site?
    4. are you referring to picture covering the whole on a secondary monitor?
    5. you try to set the image as wallpaper?
    6. Finally, as Ken pointed out, have you downloaded and installed the correct Windows 7 drivers for your videocard from the manufacturer's website?
    Updated a hardware driver that is not working properly

  • Elgato HD game does not capture installing drivers on Windows 8.

    I recently bought and HD Elgato and setting everything up, my device does not appear in the Elgato HD software. All cords and gear themselves seem to work fine, because my game flow always appears on the screen and television only for this, when it is connected to the computer via USB. I was led to believe by some other friends who are also owners and HD Elgato, pilots are supposed to install automatically when plugged into the computer and this happened not once.

    I use a computer Acer, of course, Windows 8, and didn't get any error messages excluding the "no capture hardware found' in the software. Please let me know if you need to know something else if it can solve my problem.

    Hmm... Well, I got this job. While I found your useful suggestions I don't think they were necessary. See, I've lost my USB cable a bit back and ordered a new one, only to find the day before he arrived. After using what I thought, it would become a spare part... the drivers immediately that she was in 1st place. I guess it was cable companies after all. Anyway, thank you for help.

  • Mystery P.I. New York will not play in full screen

    Just buy Mystery P.I. New York (a game of "PopCap") for my laptop.  The demo was preinstalled on my computer (HP Games) and I found a packed version (disc) cheaper than what it would have cost to activate the demo online.

    The demo plays fine in full screen; However, the full version of the game I have installed will not be open in full screen.  I tried to adjust the screen resolution, but that did not work.

    Since it is a hidden object game, it is pretty hard to see items with the screen being so small.  Can anyone help?


    1. are you able to play any other game mode full screen?

    Start the game and then find the setting in the game to run full-screen mode. More for the games will have the opportunity in the game to set the mode to full-screen or reduce video resolution.

  • in normal mode, the page disappears off the coast of the right side of the screen. This does not happen in full screen. What can be done to correct the report to the screen to normal screen?

    version 5 loaded on windows 7. all went well for a while. one day, using, normal screen ratio doubled in width; that is half of the page disappears off the screen to the right (on a widescreen). When applied full-screen mode, the ratio is very good. It only happens in normal mode, which is the generally preferred option. I can't determine all means within the program to resize the normal screen. nothing else is affected, only mozilla firefox in normal mode. not when the program is opened from keyboard page is correct for a moment, and then increases the width with 1/2 page dissappearing.

    This problem may be caused by the extension of the toolbar of Babylon 1.1.8

    Start Firefox in Firefox to solve the issues in Safe Mode to check if one of the extensions of the origin of the problem (switch to the DEFAULT theme: Firefox (Tools) > Add-ons > appearance/themes).
