RTCW not fullscreen under xwindows

Well got slackware 8.1 up and running last night! (was a redhat user b4)

Only have one problem (that I haven't solved myself yet, as had a few lol) I installed the nvidia drivers and the linux version of Return to Castle Wolfesntein and they both appear to be working, for some reason the graphics look a lot smoother than they did under redhat too. However it seems to want to run in a window and not full screen????

I have all the different resolutions and color depths listed in XF86Config.

"1152x864" "1024x768" "800x600" "640x480"

P.S. When I listed in the opposite order it gave me 640x480 on the screen (visible) but of a huge maybe 1152x864 desktop, and I could use the mouse to move the viewing area around this massive desktop???

the desktop will be the size of the largest setting if you are using virtual desktop

If it is running in a window try hitting alt+enter to go fullscreen and vice versa to go back. This will restart your map though and load it up again. Also, not sure if this works but it seems to for other stuff, you can try to run it from the command with wolfmp -f.
