Hello All,
I am setting up Stars! in the self-contained DOSBox fashion on a Win 10 notebook. It runs fine. I dont like the default 800x600 (if that) resolution. I bet you guys have long ago worked all that out. Can someone share their .conf file settings with me to get the game to fill my 1920x1080 screen?

Eternally grateful,

Since it is using an emulator, resolution changes are somewhat non-trivial. I did just update StarsBox, here, to include higher resolution graphics drivers:

To change the resolution inside DOSBox, the readme now states:
To change Windows 3.1 resolution, exit Stars! and open 'Windows Setup'. Select 'Options' -> 'Change System Settings...' and choose a new display driver. Best resolutions are:

Start with 'S3' (S3 HW driver)
End with 'SF' (small font)
Have 256 colors (least memory, all colors of Stars!)

Once selected, choose to use 'Current' driver, and restart Windows.

You can also use the key combe ALT+ENTER in DOSBox to force full screen at that resolution.
