Here's the step by step guide on how to resize your java games.

I. Download and select the java game you would want to resize. Downloaded games from forums (like Milenyals) mostly come in rar or zip format.

II. Extract the rar file of the java game. It will then reveal a bunch of files and some folders. Look for the META-INF folder.

III. Upon opening the META-INF folder, you will see a MANIFEST.MF File. This file contains the important details of the game like Version, Midlet Names, and others. Do not modify the details written here.

IV. For first time resizing, drag the file to the desktop and open it using notepad. (Next time you resize, you dont need to drag it again onto the desktop)

V. At the very bottom of the mf file (opened with notepad), key in the following (this is the part where you resize the java game)
NOTE: This is an example of resizing game from N80 resolution (352x416) to N73 resolution (240x320)

Here it is:

Nokia-MIDlet-Original-Display-Size: 352,416
Nokia-MIDlet-Target-Display-Size: 240,320

Note: the "Original display size" refers to the initial and current size of the game prior to resizing, and the "Target Display size" refers to screen resolution that you would want your game to be resized to.

VI. Save the edited MANIFEST.MF file onto the desktop then drag it back to the initial MANIFEST.MF file in the META-INF folder found in the java game rar folder.
Overwrite the initial manifest details with your newly edited resizing details.

You have just resized your java game, ready to be played compatible with your own phone resolution.
