CS 1.6 in widescreen

Post by Radical » Mon Sep 03, 2012 8:13 am

Hello, CS 1.6 runs great on Wine, but I can't set the game to widescreen mode, the option is simply inaccessible from the game menu, the same game works in widescreen on windows. What is the problem?

System info:
Ubuntu 12.04
Dell n5110
Optimus graphics (using Bumblebee)

Enable virtual desktop mode and set it's size to your monitor resolution.

Tried it, no success, after launching the game the screen goes to 4:3 mode.

Then use command line options for CS to tell it what width & height you want.

Still no luck to get widescreen on 1366x768 resolution, but i can enable widescreen when i set the virtual desktop resolution to 1440x900, but it's too big, and in a window, not full screen.

Does CS 1.6 even support such resolution on Windows?

Yes, 1024x768 is the max resolution I can set in the game on ubuntu and on windows, but on windows I can set widescreen option in the game and it is full screen. It seems like Wine dosen't support 1366x768 laptop displays, or has diferent screen managment from windows.

Have you tried adding these options to CS 1.6?:

Code: Select all

-fullscreen -w 1366 -h 768
Alternatively try this:

Code: Select all

-window -noborder -w 1366 -h 768

I recently instaled ubuntu 12-04 and wune 1.5, but Counterstrike doesn't work... I tryed with different versions, but i'm unable to make it run - When I click to icon of CS, it shows for half second the screen and than it close. Can't find any reason why... Problem isn't fullscreen or not. Any advice ?

Note - I've 32 bit machine

Just fixed... Problem: Nvidia graphic card. Changing driver is the solution.

The problem is I'm using nvidia optimus graphics, and bumble bee, but I can't optirun hl.exe, wine says it can't find it.
