Try a lower screen resolution in the Windows client?

Re: VMware workstation 8 & unbuntu

that seems to work .... as i cant run anything at all in 1024x768 (max for my monitor) but still have the black bopxes where building should be ... (main game im working on atmo) is sid meier's railroads (reason why) is its a low end game so if i manage to get that working properly others shouldnt be a problem
