Hello, I am currently working on a Dbz rpg in rm2k3. I have been putting in short clips from the show to fill the gaps in certain cut-scenes. The issue I am having is when these clips are viewed in full screen mode, they take up a very small portion of the screen and are not centered.(using the ``Play Movie`` function) So to solve this i initially just changed the offset of the video to center it, I still get a smaller size then desired(not full screen, more like quarter screen). At first I was willing to settle for this, until I ran it on a bigger screen where it was no longer centered, also if you chance the x,y values it messes with the positioning in windowed mode. Has anyone figured out a work around for this problem?
I saw cherry has made something called afm(AnotherFullscreenMode) which allows you to launch your game in windowed mode then this side program will make it appear in fullscreen, sadly this program did not work for me(I get a full pink screen, nothing else. I'm using windows 7 if that matters). So another question I have is is it possible to force my final product to only play in windowed mode?( since the clips appear fine while in windowed mode) or should I just scrap having clips in my game at all?(please no!!)
One final thing is I noticed no other Rpgs have had clips in them, is this because of copy right ? Am I not allowed to have clips from a show in my game ? (not planning to sell it or profit in anyway, just doing this in my spare time for fun, plus I love programming/being creative, currently in college for software engineering, in the process of learning C++, then i can use better makers).
Well thanks for taking the time to read this, any input on anything mentioned here would be greatly appreciated,

Ughh, I suck at reading legal documents... But from my understanding it is okay as long as I don't plan to make a profit and give credit to the creators of these clips. I have seen many Rpgs using resources from other games, I just thought it was possibly different with video. The clips aren't too long anyway, no more than a minute long. But like I said I suck at reading legal documents, please clarify this if my interpretation of this is incorrect.
