Ok, seeing as how I'm the only one on the planet that seems to have this issue lol
How about I address this a different way.
The following script that sets the launcher window so you can see it to login, actually passes the resolution of 1000x614 into the game list itself and becomes a choice in the graphic settings of swtor:.
Is there a way to pass more resolutions into the game via this bash script?
/var/chroot/wine/wine explorer /desktop=SW:TOR,1000x614 "C:\SWTOR\launcher.exe"
Does anyone else have widescreen resolutions in swtor in linux?
