I updated the post about a much better work around for the graphics problem...

its a decent way to work until (if ever) I can find a decent solution modifying Wine, but it may be something very complicated in the coding.

I really need to find a fix for the fonts now that its playable with the scaling.

I don't have a lot of hope for an X1600... they have driver issues in OSX, I have one in my old Macbook Pro.. it along with the X1900 often have serious graphics issues in Wine games and other native games

NO DUDE it works!!! I made a character and am in the training area running around on 1680x1050 resolution THANK YOU SOOO MUCH!!

Edit: Flying around during the first Borg battle now, works great! Umm except the graphics refresh thing, how do I go about editing the program to fix that?

I would so try this if my Macbook Pro wasn't down.. darn nvidia chip burned out. It's a late 2007 model. I seriously need to visit the apple store soon.

you have to type this every time you start STO.. it fixes the problem though....


after you log in, just type this in the normal chat line like your talking...

/renderscale 1.001

then... it changes the scale on rendering, which prevents the bug from occurring... but it doesn't save it, so it loses that setting every time you log off.

for better graphics you can type higher numbers, but it hurts frame rate.... 1.001 is basically 100.1% of normal resolution.

Yep ATI X1600, have to turn res down to 1024x768 during busy parts to get smooth frame rates, but otherwise it is VERY playable.
