Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

I don't think there is a default resolution for WineX. Just reset the resolution manually in the game. Most games start with a default resolution, its usually the lowest resolution. So just go into the games options menu, and change the games resolution.l If you have to adjust your monitor for a few seconds, not big deal. Try reading the WineX docs for this problem
Distribution: K/Ubuntu 12.04/14.04, Scientific Linux 6.3/6.4, Android-x86, Pretty much all distros at one point...
It's not a WineX problem. It's an XFree86 problem. The problem is that your monitor refresh rates aren't set properly for the lower resolutions. There are something called modelines in your XF86Config (or XF86Config-4) file. They determine how the output is sent to the monitor. They are unique for all models of monitors (as all models of monitors have slightly different refresh rates).
I really don't know of one particularly good tool for fixing this. Most distros come with an XFree86 adjustment program, but many times it won't work with the nVidia or ATI proprietary drivers without breaking something. The best permanent solution is to learn how modelines are calculated and manually edit your XF86Config file. The easiest solution is to change the resolution in your games to the default monitor resolution.
Distribution: Gentoo 2004.2: Who needs exmmpkg when you have emerge?
ill try that link, although i dont know my moniter specs, since i dont have the manual (no, i didnt throw it away ). but, maybe i could look at the xfree drivers for my moniter and see if that tells me anything. i use a multisync xv17+, btw.
