Recently, I was checking out some of the open-source games available in the Ubuntu repos and found the GPLed version of Maelstrom. It’s a pretty fun little game so I decided to keep it.
Anyway, I’ve noticed that if I run Maelstrom fullscreen (with the
-fullscreen option or toggling using Alt+Return in the game), my display is resized to Maelstrom’s resolution—a glorious 640 x 480 or abouts. Logging out and logging back in (or restarting X with Ctrl+Alt+Backspace and logging back in) restores my original resolution. On this computer that is 1366 x 768. I’m running UM 16.04 LTS. Everything stays normal if I play the game in windowed mode (which is fairly small).
I’ve noticed this behavior with every game with a lower fullscreen resolution than my normal resolution. On my vintage Mac, Maelstrom GPL does not do this. Is there a fix for this in UM, or should I file a bug report? It’s not a big deal, but it is somewhat annoying.
