I'm currently trying to play Crusader Kings on my netbook. Unfortunately my maximum resolution is below the minimum for the game and it refuses to start up.
My resolution is 1280x720 and the minimum resolution is 1024x768. So I'm being prevented from running it for the sake of 48 rows of pixels, or about a 2 mm of screen real estate.
I have heard about emulating higher resolutions so that the extra pixels are essentially rendered off screen and Civ 4 even seems to do this automatically with certain mods. Or is there a consistent way of running games in windows that are larger than the screen?
Are there any work arounds or programs that allow you to do this?
