RE: screen resolution detection problem

I assume you have an Nvidia card.
I don't know the details, but Wine seems to conflict with part of the Nvidia driver with certain Aurora games. In xorg.conf, add the following line inside the 'Section "Device"' paragraph:
Option "DynamicTwinView" "false"
This will however make it impossible to set resolutions in Nvidia-Settings for your 'normal' desktop. So you best select a resolution for before you apply this in your xorg.conf.
The fix worked for me in the KOTOR games. In NWN however, while it allows me to select a higher resolution beyond 800x600, the game itself won't up the refresh rate beyond 60hz, even if I set it myself in nwn.ini. So at least in my case this isn't a full fix yet.
