A quick look in the What's New PDF file works wonder...

than or equal to px=1024 and py=768 are used the original values of 1024 and 768 will be
Spanning mode is not supported and user should ensure that both the video adapter and monitor
support the px and py values.
We were unable to test on all possible monitor combinations, if you experience issues you should
immediatel y remove the px py from your command line switches to revert to standard display

No, sady this is not possible.

You can change ingame resolution to match your screen res, but windows, menu or option screens stay at original res.
Which means that those screens get smaller in proportion as you increase game res.

i read the pdf but i was asking if there is any way to change the screens (optiones etc) to fit new resolution.

thx anyway

The options screens are just a displayed bitmap graphic (of a fixed size). You will find these screen graphics as well as the button graphics in the 'art' folder.

In theory you could resize the screen bitmaps to match your screen resolution (bearing in mind that every player is probably running a different resolution depending on their hardware). However, the buttons positions will then not line up with the background graphics and will need to be resized as well. As WITP doesn't use the operating system for windows management, getting things sized and lined up properly will all need to be hand coded.

All in all it is possible but considering the number of possibilities this is a lot of effort for a screen you will only see for a few minutes at the start of the game.

Personally, I would rather MichaelM spend his time on improving the game itself.
