Can the Screen resolution be adjusted from LBAWIN

Bare with me...I'm new to this forum. I recently downloaded LBAWIN 8.0 so I'd be able to play LBA 1. It works great but I noticed the resolution was a little choppy. I know that this game is old an all but I don't believe the graphics looked that bad when I first played it back in the day. I don't think It would be my video card...It's not top of the line but considering that this game normally runs on a 386 or 486. I figure my computer with it's hardware should be able to run it with smoother graphics....especially during the cut scenes. Unless That's because of LBAWIN then please disregard.

If not, anyone out there with any suggestions...I'm running on windows xp pro if it helps.

Oh yeah, one other thing...I'm not very knowledgeable when it comes to computers, so be gentle.

Thanks in advance.

If you're asking, whether you can play LBAWin in full-screen, then yes, of course. Just press F12, or something (look in one of the included text files for more information). I know it gives you a different feeling, when you play the game in a window, because we're all used to playing both LBA games in full-screen.

I don't think that's what he asked.

Although I can't completely understand what his problem is...

Sorry, I know what I'm asking maybe a bit difficult to understand...Again like I said before I'm not too knowledgable when it comes to computers. Basiclly when It comes to running the game through LBAWIN, I have no problems. The only thing I noticed is that the resolution is a bit choppy especially during the cutsenes. I just don't remember the game looking that bad. It's a minor thing to me but I just want to know if It normally looks that way or can it be adjusted in some way or is it just because I have a old videocard. (Matrox productiva G100...I think)

Yeah, I can do that...However, I'm currently at work so it will be awhile before I can post some. Roughly around midnight (eastern).

Sorry for the slow response...But I figured out my problem. It is my video card and not the game or the program that is running the game. I got some info on my video card and also from a friend who knows a lot more than me about computers. It turns out that my card is virutally crap. To put it mildly. I purchase my computer solely for the purpose of browsing not gaming so the guy at the store put in the most basic of video cards. I tried the game on my friend's computer which is far more powerful and the images, both in game and cutscenes are sharp and clear as I remembered them. So it turns out I just need a better video card.

Thanks to all who tried to help....I'm still very happy that the game works on my computer....Thank you LBAWIN!!!
