I have tried to run Age of Empires 2 with wine using the virtual desktop feature to emulate a higher resolution screen. The game runs and the virtual desktop is indeed working, but it is running in a window and I can't find a way to make the virtual desktop fullscreen! This is a problem because the OS bar/launcher/etc are still visible/accessible/active, which leads to loss of screen real estate and trouble when moving the cursor left (the ubuntu launcher shows).
I'd like to know if anyone knows how to run the virtual desktop in proper fullscreen. I know I could hide the launcher and OS bar to "simulate" a fullscreen look but I'd rather have it be actually fullscreen.
