Additional Comments

In the game settings the max resolution is 1024×768. This can be changed in wine regedit. First navigate to HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Bullfrog Productions Ltd\Dungeon Keeper II\Configuration\Video. We'll have to modify Screen Depth, Screen Height and Screen Width. When editing these be sure that base is set to decimal! Screen Depth should be set to 32, while Screen Width and Screen Height should be set to your desired resolution. It's recommended to use 4:3 resolutions. Tho higher resolutions will work, they will stretch out certain graphical elements and some menus will be missing their text.
