3. Execute Dwarf fortress in your Terminal Emulator

I've tried to set up a ssh game session in maximized terminal emulator with 6pt font on 1080p monitor, everything seemed to work fine. If the problem persists and desribed properly, then there should be specific environment issues.

NZOLBE: How many columns wide, exactly, is your terminal emulator?

I've encountered a nearly identical issue - a buffer overflow that occurs on certain actions at high resolutions (embarking, viewing help pages, etc). Unsure if I should make a new report.

The error only seems to occur when the terminal is 260 columns wide (or above), and I haven't been able to trigger it by changing the vertical resolution.

Linux (Xubuntu 20LTS), XFCE terminal

That's the same issue - all of those actions open the same text viewer screen as "thoughts and preferences".

DF only currently supports resolutions of up to 255 (maybe 256) tiles in either dimension.
