    Manually editing winecfg


    I set the resolution on 8-bit and saved it. Now both wine and winecfg give me this error...

    X Error of failed request: BadMatch (invalid parameter attributes)
    Major opcode of failed request: 1 (X_CreateWindow)
    Serial number of failed request: 13
    Current serial number in output stream: 14

    Does anyone know how I can edit winecfg manually or otherwise, fix this?

    Cheers

    For new versions of wine, i believe they stopped using a config file, and configurations are made through the winecfg tool. Some of the settings look like they are saved in the windows registry files in your wine directory ( i believe there are three of them). i was able to find some of the settings from winecfg in the registry files by searching each, but even after i made changes it didn't fix my problem and i just ended up doing fresh install with winetools. May be worth a shot though

    I was having this problem and search on google for the solution to this. Here is a website that may be of help, http://fightaskilo.kk21.net (post under Wine error message, 08-25-2006). I think the only thing different from the website post is that you have to modify "ScreenDepth"="8" to "ScreenDepth"="16", but I think you had same problem as I and just need to use Double buffer.

    Here is the text:
    Wine error message

    If anyone got this error for Wine on Linux because they disabled Desktop double buffering under the Graphics tab:

    X Error of failed request: BadMatch (invalid parameter attributes)
    Major opcode of failed request: 1 (X_CreateWindow)
    Serial number of failed request: 13
    Current serial number in output stream: 14

    Here is a way I figured out how to resolve it.

    cd ~
    cd .wine
    pico user.reg

    Scroll to the very bottom of the document (use Page Down key), and look for:

    "DesktopDoubleBuffered"="N"

    Change it to:

    "DesktopDoubleBuffered"="Y"

    You're done! You are able to launch application and run winecfg again.
