    display scaling for old fullscreen game


    Hello!

    For my grandchilds I scale the desktop for showing huge icons.

    Unfortunately the game dinosaur world from BBC uses this scale adjustment.
    So only the half area is to see full screen.

    If I scale the desktop as normal the game displays all.

    Is it possible to adjust the scaling only for this game?

    Thank you for advice

    Thank you for your answer.
    I tried tip four, but the result was a change of DPI adjustment also for the desktop.

    But I had success with editing the "BBC Science\Dinosaur World\game.conf" file.

    I changed back to the original values:
    Width=800
    Height=600

    although my screen has 1920*1080
