But it resizes the sprites and the text . Can you do a dll , that only scales the GM window into fullscreen , without resizing the sprites ? :)

Roach . I can't do it . Can you make an example with these two DLLs ? How to change the resolution , when you click on the button , and when you click again (and the GM window sets as a real small window) to change the resolution again . If you don't understand me , just make an example of how to resize the window , without resizing the sprites , using these two dlls . Thanks . :)

Last time I checked, you dont need a DLL to change resolution...
display_set_all(width,height,frequency,color_depth)

But Game Makers own function sucks! It mess up opened windows and icons and won't work always with other functions. That's why it's better to use DLL.

As you should know gm have 2 window handles the window_handle() and the handle of the taskbar ( i always ask why :S )
So this
script_Maxmize_Min(window_handle())
will not minimize it to the taskbar.

In my api.dll i used FindWindow() to get the task handle and minimizes it

Good work

Hey, I was experimenting and I found out that if you set the game so it doesnt show the caption and border, then minimize it with the DLL you get a little box with the window caption in it, and if you double-click it then it restores the window.

See and/or buy my art online at tamajongphilip.imagekind.com. Video games need graphic artwork of some kind.
