You're right. On 1024x768 virtual screen it looks fine now.

But I had difference between ALSA and OSS. With ALSA I couldn't hear hardly any sound but with OSS about 80% correctly. Whyever.

Can't test at the moment because I don't get any sound in wine: Audio test failed. Maybe some other app caught the audio driver?

If I don't set a virtual desktop I get the error:
BF1942 Error: Invalid videomode specified
If I ignore it BF crashes.
