0001913: Resizing produces blank screen during setup
Good day, On fiddling around with dwarf fotress screen sizes (mouse dragging the edges) I noticed that the dwarf fortress screen goes blank. This is especially bad if your not sure how to get the screen to refresh. Pressing enter on the main menu for example does not refresh the screen.

Open Dwarf Fortress, resize window during open animation sequence to see it go blank and then reappear at points during the animation or at main menu. Resize the main menu to see the screen go black and not return.
I do not know if this has anything to do with me pressing f11 a couple of times in an attempt to get a fullscreen and then realising it was changing the look of the texture tiles (default tileset with graphics turned off).
error, graphics, resizing

Additional testing: f11 does appear to be the cause, should you press f11 and then resize the screen goes blank. Of additional importance: this also causes the program to refuse to close unless you end the process in task manager.

Probably related to 0000729

Okay I've Isolated the issue with more mucking around. The issue is: "Pressing f11 during the opening animation breaks the fullscreen function"

This results in pressing f11 dosnt full screen, following this anytime you resize the screen when it thinks its in fullscreen mode actually causes dwarf fortress to bug out and go blank screen.

The steps to produce are: Press f11 during opening animation. Press f11 again at main menu, resize screen using mouse drag.

Sorry about triple posting I'll have to investigate a bug more thouroughly before posting again.

This happens to me without the f11. I hit maximize, it goes black. Also has been mentioned as affected the mac version, so it's probably platform independent. additionally, it responds to input normally. esc then down then enter saves, etc

This Problem has been resolved in 31.05.
the animation screen goes blank but the main menu will after briefly bugging out refresh itself and then resume proper full screen or resizable screen functions.
