I've bought civ3 from steam and since the image is a bit squashed I decided to run the game at a higher resolution. My PC's current resolution is 2560 x 1440.
I browsed the topics on steam's civ3 page and people suggested to put the line 'keepres=1' on the ini of conquests to make it run on a bigger resolution, but when I do that, the game simply won't start.
I'm on windows 10.
EDIT: OK So I went into further compatibility settings [change high DPI settings] and chose to 'override high DPI scaling behavior', and 'scaling performed by: application'.
Now the game starts but everything is so small. I'm gonna try a different resolution to see if I can make it look playable.

The highest I have used was 1263x, unless the res on monitor is 1990. Then keepres works. I doubt I want to have the res higher as the map looks too small.
