Hi all, trying out 0.4.7.1 in Win10

Whatever size I have the Freeorion window, the title bar obscures the top part of the game window - the turn button, and all the game subwindow icons (research, production, ships, pop, detection etc. etc.). I can't seem to do anything about this, and it's unplayable.

Didn't happen last time I played (a few months ago)

Any tips?

Thanks

When playing with the Video options, both "Window Height" and "Window Top Position" cause the window to shrink (to tiny) when I click Apply, rather than changing the position or size.

Sorry to hear you are having trouble; sounds quite strange. Do you know what the resolution of your screen is?

Two possible solutions from a Win10 standpoint;
Move the Taskbar to the bottom. (Probably undesirable since you moved it to the top)
Select 'Small Taskbar buttons' from the Taskbar settings menu.

That sounds strange - does that happen while in full-screen or windowed mode?
Try changing to the other one in the options > video (don't forget to push "apply" at the bottom).

Thanks for the replies - it might have been the difference between a maximised window and full-screen mode. Will try next time. Important to note that it wasn't the Win10 taskbar that was the problem, it was the title bar of the Freeorion window itself. I guess it wasn't properly full-screen because there should have been no title bar - but I'm not familiar with the pitfalls of Win10.

For this sort of issue, screenshots would be preferable.

I think I've got the same problem, running FreeOrion 0.4.7.1 on Windows 8.1.

I made two screenshots. The first is right after starting FreeOrion in windowed mode. The second is right after starting a new singleplayer game.

I forgot to add the second screenshot in my previous reply.

Looking at my own screenshots, it seems like a bit is missing on all four sides of the window, like if FreeOrion tries to render in the full outer size of the window, without accounting for the width of the window borders.

I assume not all windows users are seeing this behavior. Any chance this is a result of installation?

I did try widening my borders on windows 10 by switching to a different theme and the window displayed properly, accounting for the increased border width.

It's my understanding that there are various ways of editing window border width in windows 8/8.1/10 (whereas there was more one "standard" way to do it in windows 7); perhaps that might account for differences in observed behavior?

A further two points to add:

I observed the same behaviour in the 27 November test build (FreeOrion_2017-11-26.cbf1e48_Test_Win32_Setup.exe).

On another laptop, the behaviour was as expected: everything is rendered inside the window borders. This laptop is running Windows 10, but (obviously) on different hardware. So it could be a graphics card driver related issue.

An updated version of SDL might help. The SDK currently includes 2.0.4 and 2.0.7 has been released.
