#1003 closed defect (fixed)

MM: sentence construction line wraps

Game: Maniac Mansion

If you use unusual long named items toghether, the text
is wrapped around and the last letter overlap with the
first. The original just truncated the text in such a case.
For example in Maniac Mansion if you try "use developer
tray with sponge with developer" the part "loper" at
the end overlaps with "use d" at the beginning.

What do you mean, "all" ? You only list Maniac Mansion. Which
other games are affected

Anyway I fixed this for V2.

I think I saw this in some German version games, too,
recently. But I don't remember exactly where it was. If I
encounter this again, I'll make a savegame and a screenshot.

Err, well, *which* games, though? There are a lot of german
LucasArts adventures :-)
If you can't specify this (and ideally provide concrete test cases),
there is nothing we can do.

It seems fixed, now. At least it works fine with the German
Amiga version and the German VGA versionn of MI1 with the
line "benutze Heftklammer-Entferner auf wahnsinnig
gefhrliches Lama" truncated to "utze Heftklammer-Entferner
auf wahnsinnig gefhrliches La" both without graphical
glitches. (In the enhanced CD they changed "whansinnig
gefhrliches Lama" into "wahnsinniges Lama" in order to get
it fit.)
Odd thing, however, if I load a savegame right before that
line, it just becomes "Benutze Heftklammer-Entferner auf
gefhrliches Lama" (Did not checked it with the original.)

If I will encounter still other glitches, I let you know.

The only change I made was for V2, though. I don't see any recent
changes that would have affected the sentence line V3+ games...
