I've never been able to run the game at anything other than 1024x768
either, but that's fine by me.

as for the darkness, use a script to start q2 and adjust the
gamma like so (change to suit your needs):

# Run Quake 2 

xgamma -gamma 1.5
cd "/usr/local/games/quake2/"
./quake2 $*
xgamma -gamma 1.0
exit $?
