    are you jokeing you start game on your winkawkas 1.65 then go to options ->video->fullscreen
    then you enter fullscreen or just like emulator say push buttons alt +enter(+ means with)
    im never hear its for linux or ported on other platform so you must have windows
    you go on author site : http://cps2shock.emu-france.info/download.html (programer who write kawaks)
    then you run 1.65
    tested with magical drop2 nothing special meh

    Thanks for your reply, but I'm a long time Winkawaks user. I know ALT+ENTER is full screen.

    The screenshot was taken right after I had pressed ALT+ENTER.

    You can see the game is correctly full screen, but Winkawaks superpositions the titlebar and window borders

    I recently upgraded to Windows 10. Can that be the problem?

    Anyone with the same problem that can help me?
    Thanks.

    Yes, rule of thumb with emulation is that the new OS upgrades will have problems and slowly get fixed over time. Windows 7 is the best OS for emulation at the moment.
    Original, the only way to play.

    I created an account just to reply this. Know it's months old now, but when I ran into your problem myself, this is one of the first pages google spits out when searching for a solution. Ran across a fix on Microsoft's Answers forum on a thread regarding a Windows 8 DirectDraw compatibility fix for old games, but it works on my Windows 10 64-bit WinKawaks 1.64 installation (original Microsoft Answers post: https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/...2-39553b286a49 ).

    Note: This involves a Windows Registry change, be very careful!

    Save this as a *.reg file and modify the path to your game executable:

    Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

    [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\AppCompatFlags\Layers]
    "C:\\Program Files (x86)\\YourGame\\GameExecutable.exe"="$ DWM8And16BitMitigation Layer_ForceDirectDrawEmulation"
    (Change the "C:\\Program Files (x86)\\YourGame\\GameExecutable.exe" to your WinKawaks.exe location, mine's "C\\Games\\WinKawaks\\WinKawaks.exe")

    Then run the registry script.

    Hope it helps!
