             Bug #: 31381
           Summary: Temple of Evil - full screen mode "fail", results in a
                    "borderless window" with wrong dimensions

          Priority: P2
         Component: -unknown
        AssignedTo: wine-bugs at winehq.org

First of all, I'm not very technically minded and I know nothing of the
techniques or methodology involved so no special/technical meaning should be
inferred from the words I use.

Strange interaction between kde Plasma Panel and Temple of Evil full screen.

To trigger, this must be true:
-Plasma panel set to: always visible (this does not normally cause problems for
full screen applications, it should only prevent windows from covering it while
the desktop is visible)
-There must be a panel at either the top or the left-hand side of the screen
(not strictly true, but these are the areas most likely to overlap with wine).

-Application must be set to run in full screen
-Application must use 3d acceleration  
-Application need to change between high and low resolutions, such as between
movies displaying studio logotypes etc. and the game.

My desktop looks like figure 1.
then I launch ToEE.exe

What appears to happen:
-Desktop and Screen dimensions are set to the resolution the game is intended
to have 
-Taking a screen shot results in a native resolution (that is, it does not
reflect what is actually displayed on the screen) image(figure 2) which is
probably unrelated, but does make it harder to illustrate the problem.
-Application appears to be rendered in the appropriate resolution, while still
not occupying the full screen, it appears as an unmanaged window whos' size
does not match up correctly with the resolution. Figure 3 depicts ToEE in the
resolution of 1280x1024 on a 1920x1080 desktop - as you can see it comes short
in all directions, although height is the worst offender. 
-Once a "window" has been created for the application, re-sizes do not happen
to the degree they should, requiring user intervention.
-Trying to alt tab leaves ToEE always on top (it doesn't minimize), as long as
ToEE is running, desktop resolution is set to the same resolution. (I don't
think this is relevant though)              

To avoid triggering the behaviour, perform any of:
-Use a virtual desktop
-Move the plasma panel so that it doesn't cross applications run with wine;
change it to auto hide.

Additional: Disabling intro movies (which I think fixes the "window" size of
the game to 1024x768) reduces the problem to as shown by figure 4 (what is
displayed on screen) and figure 5 (which is a correct rendition of a 1280x1024
window on a 1920x1080 desktop - although it was supposed to be full screen). 
Figure 3, 4 and 5 have been doctored to show only what is shown on screen, and
may as such be slightly off pixelwise.

It seems to me that something goes wrong when changing resolutions, this is
especially annoying with applications defaulting to 640x480, and it seem to
involve the top left corner of the screen...

of the different traces I attempted X11 seemed most promising of actually
containing anything useful.
