Thread: window moved

  1. #1

    Default window moved

    Hi,
    Whenever I go in-game in opensuse 13.1 the game screen is not centered.
    Its off set to the left and the other side of the screen is black.
    The screen moves around whenever I move the mouse cursor around.
    Looks like this


    how do I fix this?

    It would probably help if you told us what video controller you're using
    and what driver you installed.

    How are you setting the dimensions?

    Did you look at the setting in Configure desktop??

    Looks like you told the video driver to be one resolution but KDE thinks it is another

    I have seen this myself from time to time, though usually with WINE as I can recall it. Do you run native steam or through WINE? Do you have issues with other games also?

    I have the same GPU as you so I did a test with native Steam playing Day of Defeat, no problems; the desktop resolution is 1920X1080 and the game ran in default 1024X768, back and forth resolution change (full-screen) did not pose any trouble.

    One thing I would suggest is to make sure the nvidia repository is added as a source and check for updates, YaST, zypper ....

    'NVIDIA X Server Settings' could be launched from the menu, do you use this one? For KDE: 'System Settings > Hardware > Display' will show what is set for the desktop.

    The game is native to steam and this problem only happends in the half-life game engine and when my desktop resolution is set to 1280x1024 (19 in monitor). When the desktop resolution is at 1024X768 it works, but when the icons on desktop is larger than normal...
    It's weird because nvidia repositories are up to date and NVIDIA X Server Settings are fine too.
