I have 2 monitors in my desktop. The one has a smaller resolution than the other (don't know if it matters for this issue). From Display I have disabled mirroring, so the first monitor continues to the other.

Today I installed Braid. When I launch it, it goes fullscreen. When I quit the game, the setting have reverted to the mirroring of monitors (and with the smaller resolution), and I have to set them up each time.

Is there a solution for that?

The GPU is sapphire radeon hd 3870, haven't install any extra drivers for the GPU, 64bit CPU, using gnome-shell

The GPU is ATI. 64bit CPU. Anything else? –  George Kastrinis Oct 15 '11 at 5:04
    
Add it to your question, comments get buried here. If you know the exact model that might help too. –  Jorge Castro Oct 15 '11 at 5:04

Do you see the same behaviour if you run in windowed mode? /opt/braid/braid -windowed -width 1024 –  kikixx Oct 18 '11 at 18:34
    
@kikixx Sorry for the delay. No when I run it in windowed mode, it's ok. So the problem rises with the fullscreen I guess. Any ideas? –  George Kastrinis Oct 21 '11 at 15:34
    
I tried it with my monitor, and it turned off the secondary monitor on starting braid. Quitting braid did not turn on it either, and I had to do it in Displays manually. –  Capt.Nemo Oct 23 '11 at 12:03

I don't have braid myself but have found this issue else where. What I can only suggest is two workarounds:

1) run in windowed mode, as detailed in comments above, which sounds like it works.

2) create a new launch script as detailed on the WINEHQ page linked above, to use xrandr after braid quits to return the correct resolution.
/opt/braid/braid && xrandr --output DVI-0 --mode 1024x768 && xrandr --output DVI-1 --mode 1440x900

edit: changed suggested xrandr command to match OP output

I put the output of xrandr in the first post. Could you help me for the command mentioned above? Thx :) –  George Kastrinis Oct 23 '11 at 11:40
    
I managed to make it work with /opt/braid/braid && xrandr --output DVI-0 --mode 1024x768 && xrandr --output DVI-1 --mode 1440x900 --right-of DVI-0 Thx :) –  George Kastrinis Oct 24 '11 at 22:32
