    Sets resolution to the highest possible for that render engine, 1600x1200. To use a lower resolution, see Technical Notes.
    The game has been set to its highest supported resolution for D3D, 1600x1200.

    To use a different resolution, open the registry editor and navigate to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Sierra On-Line\Cataclysm and set screenHeight and screenWidth to height and width of the desired resolution (switch from hexadecimal to decimal before entering the values)
    Exit regedit afterwards.

    Opening Sierra and Relic screens are disabled. To enable them, edit the Game starting Arguments.

    Suggested edit: Game can only run 1280x1024 anything higher and it reverts back to default 640x480 its better to use command arguments in Lutris as well as ticking the option in system edit "switch resolution to" and then selecting 1280x1024 in order to get rid of the large black bars on the side of the screen. Tried using wine registry however that suggested resolution change method didn't do anything. Arguments used: /disableAVI /1280 /device d3d

A discovery is about to turn the culture of Kharak upside down. The people, Kushan, are not native to Kharak at all. The discovery of the Guidestone is the ultimate proof that Kushan had came from another solar system, far away. And it's time to go home. The Mothership project united the world. Part base, part construction yard, the Mothership is capable of everything, as you never know what you will find in the void...

Homeworld is a 3D strategy game where you control a mothership and a fleet as you harvest resources, conduct research, and build up your fleet that can vary from small, fast, and nimble scouts to lumbering heavy cruisers. Move your camera in full 3D (up/down/around) and issue full 3D movement orders. Specify 3D formations for your ships, employ cloaked vessels to ambush enemy or employ salvage vessels to capture enemy ships, or defend against them with prox sensors and mines. There is a 17-mission single player campaign, or you can play online in true internet multi-player.
