Additional Comments

Using a netbook with 1024x600 screen resolution, I had to run wine in windowed mode, with 800x600 pixels window size. Additionally I needed to set "SCREEN_SIZE_X 800" and "SCREEN_SIZE_Y 600" in settings.cfg, which is located in the game's root directory. On a system with higher resolution, the above is probably not necessary to run the game, but since the settings executable does not work under wine, editing settings.cfg is still likely the only way to change what resolution the game runs in.
