I have heard around the ZC community about issues with ZC n windows 10 especially after the many absurd updates that have been released. I have gotten it to run flawlessly so if anyone is having issues leave them here and I will do my best to guide you!

Mine crashes whenever I try to set the room item. 2.50 b24

Never mind, 2.50.2 fixed this.

 

EDIT: Oh, and won't run fullscreen. ZQ also won't run in 2.5 interface in anything other than 1x scale.

Untitled.pngI dont often use the editor, sorry if that wasn't clear. However in terms of getting ZC to working full screen I have a fix for that. Download the freely's DXGL here: https://en.freedownl.../DXGL-FREE.html.
 

Sadly I cannot post a screen shot here but just fiddle around with the DXGL, (like I did) and It will work. If gameplay is laggy open the Intel graphics setting and go to display, then check scale full screen, then check override application settings. If this doesn't help I am about to do a guide on how to get ZC to work. A tutorial of sorts.

Maybe your resolution is too low? At 2x, it's 1600x1200, and it won't start if the window would be too big to fit on the screen.

I confirm that ZQ works but fullscreen does not.but i try the DXGL and see if it works with it..

 

Edit:i also use 2.50.2

Edit 2: now ZQ works in fullscreen in Win10 with DXGL tool

Hello, Zelda Classic 2.53 will run on my Windows 10 computer.

 

When going to full screen, it stretches too much making the menu bars impossible to see and it sometimes crashes in full screen mode. Also when going to control setting, it won't let me set my controls to use shift for the start button. It gives me the message that all key bindings must be unique.

 

I noticed there is a video tutorial that uses DXGL to fix these issues. The video was made back in 2017. The menu for DXGL is different for the most current version and I'm having a difficult time setting up the resolution on DXGL for Zelda Classic. The apply button is never highlighted.

 

Can anybody help me out?

Grab this early package of 2.53r3.

 

DXGL is packaged with it in a standalone format, and you can toggle it on/off and select between three presets (provided by Bill Feely over at dxgl.org) from ZLaunch.exe (drivers tab). You should simply be able to enable DXGL, then go to the ZC Player tab and select Fullscreen mode, then run ZC from the button.

 

Please report any difficulties.

Thank you very much ZoriaRPG!

 

Zelda classic is now able to fit on my screen properly, including the menus. Zelda Classic also doesn't freeze on my computer anymore! It still gives me the "all key bindings must be unique" message when I try to set the start button to left shift. If that is the worst of it, then I will adjust.

Check all three key bindings dialogues. One of the others must be set to use LShift. Glad it is all working for you.
