             Bug #: 30193
           Summary: Crysis Wars ded server doesn't resize with wineconsole
                    (curses backend)
           Product: Wine
           Version: 1.4-rc6
          Platform: x86-64
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: programs
        AssignedTo: wine-bugs at winehq.org
        ReportedBy: liquitsnake at gmx.net
    Classification: Unclassified

Created attachment 39410

The Crysis Wars dedicated server, when running under wineconsole with the
curses backend, does not resize its viewport. It is stuck at the default 80x25,
even if the terminal is considerably larger (see attachment).
This produces some unexpected output, as some commands expect a larger size but
have to be split over 2 lines via  \

My terminal and wineconsole interact just fine, as I have verified with cmd.
It's just this app that sticks to 80x25 no matter what.
On Windows, it would normally spawn a console window with a size of 132x60 (or
less if the desktop resolution can't fit that)

Could it be that wineconsole first starts at 80x25 and only later resizes to
terminal size? In that case, I can imagine that the app polls the size once
during startup and sticks to that, thus limiting itself to 80x25.
