You may want to try the Windows* compatibility mode.
The above suggestion doesn't work unfortunately.
The only way is to manually select 1024x768 on the desktop, or whatever other resolution I want.
Then dosbox correctly starts up pillar boxed.
This is why I don't get why there is an issue with the scaling options in the driver.
If pillarboxed resolutions actually work, how difficult can it be to make the driver switch a resolution automatically once I start an application that is in non native resolution, instead of it requiring of me to manually do it every time I wanna play dosbox games?
Hi again joe_intel
I already have that driver installed.
It's a DVI cable directly from the monitor into the motherboard DVI slot.
Motherboard is Gigabyte Z87-D3HP.
The whole system is fully updated driver wise.
I'm just using the HD 4600 iGPU as my dedicated GPU died, and I am waiting for a replacement, so I wanted to report the dosbox scaling issue.
This happened with System Shock portable and runs on latest dosbox.
I already completed the game by manually changing the desktop resolution to 1024x768, and then starting up dosbox to get correct scaling.
But it's worth reporting this bug in case you guys can reproduce it and fix it.
