My first thought is - are these games displaying in the same resolution as
your desktop? My text console doesn't fit the monitor properly (has about
1/4inch blank on one side and the top 2-3 pixel rows run off the top) and
I've narrowed it down to the monitor adjustment. If I adjust the monitor's
controls to fix the display then the gui screen is shifted off the screen.
So, maybe you might find something in the relevant configs (although setting
up X is greek to me and I can't find enough goats in South London!) I'm not
concerned about it in my case cos it's not doing damage and the console's
still usable.
