Do you know the problem, that you want to work on your game on your netbook, which has a resolution of 1280x700 or 1024x600, but the RPG Maker XP/VX refuses to start because it wants at least 1024x768?
I had this problem with some other programs as well, so I wrote a little tool, which allows you to bypass such restrictions at any program. (If then a window doesn't fit onto your screen, it's your problem^^)
Here is it:
FakeRes will make any application believe that your screen has a resolution different from the real one. Some applications refuse to start if the screen resolution is too low, even if it wouldn’t cause a problem. With FakeRes, you can use these applications (like RPG Maker XP/VX or HUAWEI’s Mobile Connect software) on your netbook (or other device with low resolution) too. You just have to select the application you want to trick into working and click “Create Shortcut” to create a shortcut on your desktop which will launch this application with a fake resolution. Optionally, you can specify which resolution should be faked.
