I've recently found a printable wargame (Outpost Gamma) that sounds pretty cool, and I'm quite eager to give it a spin. My problem is, the board comes in two gigantic .jpg files. Every time I've tried to print them, they either come out shrunk down, or only print in part. Any suggestion for how to format these, or what program to use, to get better results?

I can't help you, but I'm pretty sure I've seen answers to such questions at this YahooGroup: http://games.groups.yahoo.com/group/dwarfstar/

That group is dedicated to the Dwarfstar games like Outpost Gamma.

When you select a printer, click on properties. There usually is some kind of poster print option (or something similar) that allows you to enlarge a print such that it is printed on several sheets.
If that isn't any option enlarge the picture in Powerpoint or a similar program and copy it to several pages each one focusing on a different part of the map.
