View Full Version : Wine 0.9.43 and full screen games

August 13th, 2007, 09:25 PM
I have recently installed Wine 0.9.43 and I am having some trouble with full screen games not using the whole screen. Some of the games I am running only support 640X480 resolution. Since my desktop is 1280 X 800 the games appear in a small 640X480 rectangle in the top left-hand corner of the screen with the rest of the screen black. Is this normal? Can I fix this?

Do you have "Emulate virtual desktop" enabled in winecfg? If so, disable it. Also, is 640X480 one of the resolutions listed in your xorg.conf?

Well I fixed the problem... I am not sure what caused it though. I edited the xorg.conf and then restarted but grub broke for some reason. I thought it would just be easier to reinstall Ubuntu than try to fix it.

Well... at least it works now.

That's called the "nuke" solution. It's terribly effective ;)
