Summary0002003: Resolution always defaults to 800x600
DescriptionNo matter if I use the launcher or edit the 'settings.json' file manually the resolution always defaults to 800x600 upon game start. This happens regardless if fullscreen is on or off.

Changing the setting via the launcher does reflect in 'settings.json', however starting the client (both from the launcher and directly) removes the added lines.
Steps To ReproduceIt happens every time on my machine.
Additional InformationRunning x64 MATE desktop environment, version 1.8.1

Graphic card is AMD Radeon HD 5770, proprietary drivers vesion 13.35.5

Most likely you didn't enabled mod for high resolutions support.
Try to enable "Extra resolutions" in "VCMI essential files".

There does not seem to be an 'Extra resolutions' option in the launcher. Also worth mentioning that upon trying to reinstall the 'VCMI essentials files' it fails with the error 'vcmi: Failed to delete mod data'.

After installing the core files manually there are still no option for the essentials mod.

"VCMI essential files" should have "Extra resolutions" submod inside.
Though I do checked that if I remove mine ~/.local/share/vcmi/ there is no way to re-download "VCMI essential files" which is weird.

Hopefully someone who know a bit more about packaging can give a hint on that.

After manually copying the package provided by Ivan the issue is resolved. The problem seems to be with downloading the 'VCMI essentials files' mod through the launcher.

We really need to resolve this one. Why the mod isn't in main repository?

"VCMI Essential Files" is not a mod on Launcher server, it is a part of VCMI package distributed for Windows. I don't know how the files are distributed for other platforms.

Agree they could be moved to main repository. But this needs consultation with Linux devs.

I talked with Ivan and he said that idea was that version in git (and as result distributed on Linux) must always have version "0.0" while repository should contain versioned one that contain extra resolutions, etc.

He said that he have access and can fix it tomorrow.

So repository now fixed (no idea if it's Ivan or Warmonger, but thanks!).
Though launcher on Linux still struggle to update it properly. :-(
