So I'm playing on a laptop with a maximum screen resolution of 1366x768.

Whenever I switch Maple to fullscreen, I get this fugly horizontal stretching.

I also can't play 1024x768 (windowed mode), because the window won't even fit properly on my screen.

Does anyone know how, if possible, to change the settings so instead of Maple snapping to the screen width, it'll leave bars on the side?

Thanks in advance!

You're right. Batman doesn't buy computers with weird resolutions.
Google will solve the problem though!

MrTouchNGo, The maximum screen resolution on your computer can not be changed because it is HW (HardWare). You'll have to play window 800x600 due to MapleStory's lack of resolution options for the best looking graphics.

Edit: Try right clicking your 'Taskbar' at the bottom of your screen and setting it to 'Auto-hide' from "Properties" that should give you some extra playing space.

I already tried that, but it still hides a little on the bottom (picky me, but I'll probably be doing that if I can't find any other solutions).

I know it's possible, because my friend plays with black bars on the side of her screen instead of having it fit to screen, but that's her default, so she has no idea how to do it. :x

Mine does that too. Its because our screen resolutions are higher than what maple can support so it fills in the extra space with black bars.

(Vista) Start>Control Panel>Personalize>Display Settings>Under resolution drag right for higher resolution and right for lower resolution.

Making your resolution higher (dragging the bar right) makes the items on your monitor small and making the resolution lower (dragging the bar left) makes them bigger and more blurry.

Also some monitors can only take so much of a high resolution and depending on what cord you are using to connect your monitor will limit how high you can go.
