finally i tried the widescreen patch...what a mistake! it installed fine, but it mangled the main menu screen so there's like toolbars on the top and bottom of the screen. and guess what? it's a higher resolution, but not widecreen anyway. not only that, but now my cursor disappears anytime i try to move it on the menu screen.i can hit "S' for single player, and navigate the mennu like that, but i can't get past character creation without a cursor.
so i uninstalled the patch, and reloaded it up. the menu looked fine (no toolbars) but now the cursor is still stuck disappearing! wtf is that! it was clearly a problem that the widescreen patch created, but it's not going away when i uninstall it. wtf! help, someone. please.
btw, i'm using wine, and have tried both with and without -no3d
