WineX 3.1 and Morrowind

So, I installed this game using winex.
Install took about hour, when i tried to use "winex3 morrowind.exe"
first it reads cd on cd-drive and after that,
when the game should start comes error:
Render Creation Error: "Creation failed: Could not match desired full screen mode".

What could cause this error, how can i pass this?

Thanks in advance

I have a similar problem, although it complains about my color settings ( I think it would be easy to fix except I can't set them to what it wants. If I were you I would try different resolution settings or maybe toggle the full screen/window option in the Morrowind launcher (hey, who knows? )
