Next time please don't send a mail like this to both the list and my
private mail, I first read my private mail, thus you got a private
response, now here is the same response again for those reading the
list. Even better would be to use bugzilla for things like this.

Thats useless as the problem seen here is caused by you running it from a console instead of from X.

I don't understand why you find this useless. I have a problem : when i
run the game from X, i obtain a black screen. I can hear the sound. So i
guess the game plays fine except i have nothing at screen. I kill the
game from a console and i see my desktop in very low resolution. So i
tried to launch it from a console to see the messages ...

The X error you are seeing is xvidmode related, and that message is given because tremulous is making an xvidmode call to change the resolution, while X is not visible / on the foreground. Thus the output is useless.

Could you try the official tremulous binaries from the tremulous homepage, and if those give a black screen too try contacting the tremulous developers directly?

I tried the official package without any success. I have the same
problem with similar games (alienarena, cube, ...) but i can play with
doom and freedoom without any problem.

Sounds like a video-driver / or monitor configuration problem. Since you're using the binary nvidea drivers there is no-on who can help you here.
