To make it 1980x1200, you cycle through the preset resolutions until it says "custom," then type in your desired resolution.
Yeah, I did that, and set to fullscreen just to have to do a forced reboot cause it scrambles the desktop. I have no issues with nexuiz, in fact it goes fullscreen right from the start - exactly what one usually needs for this type of games.
Our distribution of the game doesn't include one, although I believe PlayDeb's version does. You can make one yourself by editing the menu though. The command to run the game is "crx".
Thanks, I found it (buried) in "source" I guess, the game's devs have worked a lot to create the game but didn't bother creating an intuitive launcher file like "start-game" in the root folder of the distribution rather then the cryptic "crx" file hidden in the "source" dir.
