Game not resizing in itch

To be able to scale to fit any screen size, my game uses the setup shown here (scaling for a single page) : https://www.yoyogames.com/blog/67/scaling-for-html5

It works perfectly if I just run it in browser from Game Maker, or from here: https://cthulhucreates.github.io/FetchQuest/

But where it's uploaded to itch (https://clockework.itch.io/fetch-quest) it doesn't.

The game was built in Game Maker 1.5, I'm using Chrome,  I've tested it on several devices.

Hello,

I see that you've made a very large embed window right now. This is a bad experience for people who have tinier screens. We do not support having the game embed change dimensions on the game's page, you'll have to use the mode that opens your game in fullscreen. 

As a side note, there's nothing special we do about embedding your game other than putting it in an iframe. If you're having an issue with your game changing shape then it's likely related to your engine configuration, or you may need to call a method in your game engine to maximize it.

Awesome, I'll look into that now, thank you :)

Can I ask what size you'd recommend for the embed window?
