Crash when minimizing or alt-tabbing to the desktop #24528
Game version: 0.C-29754-g34eea34 (console) (build 7627, latest experimental)
Operating system: Windows 8.1 64bit
Tiles or curses: curses (but tiles still has problems with screen resizing)
Mods active: any
No crash, minimizes/alt-tabs fine.
Steps to reproduce the behavior
Launch the game then minimize the game or alt-tab to the desktop (alt-tabbing to other windows is fine).
After the crash the terminal width and height returns to the defaults 80 and 24 regardless of what it was to before. (The game also crashes and behaves erratically when trying to resize the window)
You are right, tested again now and minimizing with the tiles version and it works. Screen resize is still pretty bad for me though. In the tiles version you can resize the window in the main menu and ingame, if you try during during character creation or while in the options menu it will blank the screen then crash. In the curses version you can resize the screen only in the main menu I think, ingame and in the submenus it blanks and crashes.
Crashes when tabbing out of fullscreen as well. After the crash the size resets to default.
Borderless doesn't like to be minimized either; it tries to keep itself the active window and may also crash when attempting to minimize it.
The only way to play without it terminating is in regular windowed mode. I haven't had any real issues with resizing/minimizing there. I have had the screen blank on resize in the menu, but just activate a redraw (move selector) and it comes back fine.
This is for the Tiles version.
