Hey guys, i have windows 7 64 bit and running rpgmaker xp.
I thought i would share with you guys the way to fix it !! I could not find a solution on the net. This is to address the problem that no matter what you do, you get the error cannot open in less then 1024x768 message.
Some people say disable arro or to run in compatibility mode, none really works!!
But what you have to do is this, and it will work. At least it did for me.
goto your programfiles/enterbrain/ or whever you installed it
mine was in C:\Program Files (x86)\Enterbrain
edit the rpgxp application by right clicking it
hit properties and goto compatibility
and checkmark the box that says Disable display scaling on high DPI systems
do the same with the game.exe in the system folder.
I did this, and it works! I thought i would create an account and respond to this thread and give other people hope that you can get it running, up until now, i was running rpgmaker on a windows xp virtual machine i setup! Thank god I do not have to go through that again!
This works but! Everything is rather smallish on the editer and tile map editing screen, i will try and fix it and let you all know what i did. Although it could be my current resolution is 1920x1200 I think if i were to lower it, rpgmaker would open allot cleaner, but that is misc. configeration issues!!
I hope this helps! Also check out my rpgmaker game kingdom of auspiex http://koarpg.com
