TuxRacer


When i launch the monitor goes black and comes up with a message saying "Input not supported"

I think its going into too high resolution or refresh rate.

Any ideas?

nVidia GeForce 4 Ti 4200
Drivers installed.

I have looked into it some more and it seems one option people have done is dissable fullscreen mode. which is _apparently_ done in ~/.tuxracer/options
only thing is, i dont have a hidden folder in my home for tuxracer :/ so gawd knows where my options are.

[edit] ok i ran 'nano ~/.tuxracer/options' and it opened options fine.
the game works perfectly without fullscreen [/edit]
