    I just cant get it to work in Full Screen and have tried the prefs which
    do not work. Has anyone had success?

    I can get SS to run at the same resolution as my main screen (1280x800)
    but I would rather see a part of the OSX desktop so I keep SS at

    Enter manually the resolution you want in the SS prefs, then that choice
    will appear in the Monitors Control Panel.

    Used Chubby Bunny on a Macbook Pro 2010, intel i5, 15 inch supported with El Capitan (10.11). Everything runs smoothly, in fact smoother than on my Macbook 2007. There are two ways to solve the fullscreen problem.

    1) If you are using Lion,
    -download Maximizer by chpwn
    -(must install SIMBL) .
    This method is easy and creates fullscreen arrows in the right corner of the gray head bar.

    2) If you are using any Mac OS,
    -Open COIV4.0.1 folder (or whatever folder contains Chubby Bunny)
    -Use ctrl & click on folder labeled Classic, click show package contents
    -Use ctrl & click on folder labeled COI, click show package contents
    -Open text file hih1 (may need Text Wrangler)
    -Change line that says:
    screen win/1024/768
    change this to the width and height you prefer
    I changed mine to:
    screen win/1480/1000
    -Quit text edit.

    This should solve your problem, and change the dimensions indefinitely.
