I run X at 1600x1200. When I play quake at any res from 640x480 -
1280x1024, it plays full screen at that res. The VidMode extensions in X
should allow you to change on the fly for apps like quake.

If I recall, when I Load extmod, I dont omit xfree86-dga. This allows
the resolution changes without restarting X. If your hardware supports
DGA, enable it. You should be able to play any game full screen in any
supported vidmode.

Hope that helps.
