i reaaally enjoy playing this game. everything is perfect for me but..

my monitor size is 24inch and its standard resolution is 1920x1200, so it has pretty large black areas around itself  Embarrassed
is there any way i can make the main screen size bigger when it's full screen mode?

of course i know that i can play it without black borders if i change the desktop resolution to 1280x800 temporarily before playing it but..
you know.. it's annoying that i should change it whenever i want to play the game T.T

can anybody tell me the solution?

Changing your screen resolution to 1280x800 temporarily while you play the game is the only solution.

There's a way to automatically switch your resolution once you start the game.
Get Display Changer from the 12noon site (direct download).
You should set your game to fullscreen.
Now look in your Start Menu under "Programs", there should be a shortcut called "Display Changer 1024x768" or "Display Changer (64-bit) 1024x768" if you took the x64 version.
Copy it to your desktop.
Rename it to "Machinarium (custom mode)" or anything you like, right-click > Properties.
Go to the Tab "Shortcut" > Field "Target".
There are already "-width=1024 -height=768" appended at the end. Change it to "-width=1280 -height=800".
Directly behind append the path to your "Machinarium.exe" e.g. : '-width=1280 -height=800 "C:\Program Files\Machinarium\Machinarium.exe"' or relative '-width=1280 -height=800 ..\Machinarium\Machinarium.exe' (if your Machinarium Folder resides in the folder above the "dc64.exe" or "dc.exe".
Once done click ok and start your game with this Shortcut.

After closing the game screen returns back to initial res Smiley

EDIT: If you get a message saying something about settings, you can add "-quiet" as parameter to not display any messages.

*EDIT OK when I click the custom icon it launches the game but its still in 4:3 aspect ratio even though I put 1366x768! I want to play this game in widescreen! What do I do?
