man, haven't played doom for so long...almost forgot how good it is...tongue.gif...

anyway, i have pdaxrom beta3 + xfce4, i ve been play it in th window mode at 320x240 as 640x480 is pretty much unplayable...i searched over the forum and pretty much found two ways to play prboom on fullscreen at 320x340...but none worked....

first, i tried
CODE
xrandr -s 320x240&&prboom&&xrandr -s 640x480
nothing happens...

then i tried edit the prboom.cfg, change the x/y to 320x240, then exit X, type
CODE
export SDL_NOMOUSE=1
then start prboom.....but again, it tells me that there s no video large enough for 320x240...so i guess the version of prboom i have only works under x?...doesn't make any sense tho....

><...anyone have any idea what should i do? unsure.gif

thanx

try just running xrandr to see what modes it supports; you should see something like:

CODE
SZ:    Pixels          Physical       Refresh
*0    640 x 480    ( 217mm x 163mm )
 1    320 x 240    ( 217mm x 163mm )

in which case you can do

CODE
xrandr -s 1

to switch to 320x240.

thanx for reply, but when i typed xrandr under terminal (no X running) it told me "Can't open display (null)"

.... huh.gif

Oops, didn't realise you were trying to run it outside of X - xrandr is X only.
