So far found problem with so Rows=... parameter in mangclient.ini file

I wanna have




But when I set it in mangclient.ini - game change this values to:
NumRows=26 for [Term-0]; and NumRows=8 for [Term-1]

The client resizes the values for whatever reason, and that's probably happening in Vanilla too. I'll look into it.

My term windows in all the Pos/Con/Frog consistently shrink with nearly every opening of the games.

TomeNET doesn't have this problem, maybe solution could be found there

Can't reproduce the problem unfortunately. I would need the exact content of the ini file.

I'd say it's because the parameters used for the font don't match the font itself. I always use "graphics_nice=1" when I play, so the game calculates everything automatically.

Yesterday I tried those 21x31 and 24x36 fonts and there's no way they can fit a 1920x1280 screen. The game rescales the client so that 198x66 display can be drawn + the left part (13 colums) + one row at top and bottom. The solution would be to use 19x29 font, it's the biggest one that fits.

I managed to kinda 'fix' this problem with config which I described at my PWMAngband page:

Also you could easely reproduce this bug by using my addon - every time when you turn on/turn off addon - game client got n+1 window size; try to do it several times and game client would become long as snake :D

So for now it's not critical issue, cause it's possible to fix it with .ini file protection (as I did it for mangband game).. But still it would be fun to fix this issue one day.

stream is commin :D

Why are you not using the SDL client? It works perfectly with the fonts you are using... and it's one window. You wouldn't need an addon, and the numrows never moves.

Because I like to play fullscreen without borders, menues & etc; also it's hard to customize sizes there
