Hey, so I just switched one of my computers to fully linux (Arch ftw) running i3wm (i3-gaps specifically). I was trying to get the "linux launcher" to work for me, but when I start the game, I get this:

The window is squeezed together like that and my mouse doesn't work at all (keyboard works sometimes).

Has anyone come across this problem before? Because it is i3wm (a tiling manager), I have tried multiple different arrangements to see if that affects this. Even when it is launched in floating, full screen, on its own workspace, etc. All attempts yield this result.


Everything else seems to work fine. Sound works fine, launcher works fine, etc. Hopefully someone out there has had this same issue Shocked

It is related to the resolution.

Are you trying to play on one screen or multiple screens?

To me it looks like the client is actually running in triple screen resolution, but squished into a single screen. I bet if you set the resolution to 1920x1080 it will look correct.

You might be on to something, I do have 3 monitors but it only shows up on 1 (i used gimp to cut out the other monitors since it was web browsers and stuff).

The problem with that is that I cannot operate the "settings" in-game. Is there a way to change it out-of-game?
