I'm fairly new to PlayOnLinux and am attempting to play Mass Effect (via Steam) on Ubuntu 13.10 with a display of 1920 x 1080. In order to get the game running without screwing up the display, I switch to 1280 x 960 before starting the game. (If I don't do this, I end up rebooting because the display becomes almost unusable.) Unhappily, the game then runs in a sort of 'letterboxed' way. The full game display takes up only a small area of the screen, with blackness surrounding it. How can I either

  • get the game to display fullscreen with the 1280 x 960 resolution or
  • get the game to display fullscreen with the 1920 x 1080 resolution (nicer option)?

Thanks for any ideas!
