BASS: Control panel text differences from the original

Reported by: eriktorbjorn Owned by: fingolfin
Priority: normal Component: Engine: Sky
Keywords: Cc:
Game: Beneath a Steel Sky

Description

I don't know whether to call this a bug or not, but I
happened to notice that ScummVM draws the control panel
text slightly different than the original. See attached
screen shots.

From what I can tell, the original uses character set
2, not 0. But if I simply change to that, for whatever
reason I don't get the shadow around the letters.

It looks pretty good to me when using character set 1. Any particular reason you prefer 2 over 1?

comment:2 by eriktorbjorn, 13 years ago

I didn't say I preferred one over the other, I said ScummVM is different from the original in this respect. :-)

Sorry, those words were ill-chosen. What I meant is this: Using charset 1 results in an output which (to me) looks like the screenshots you provided. But then I didn't try to hard to look for differences (and I only had your screenshots to work with, guess I should at some point try to get BASS running in dosbox)

Hence, I was wondering why you mentioned charset 2 but not 1. Did you spot any differences I missed? Or why else did you suggest charset 2 as looking correct "except for the shadow" w/o considering charset 1 (which has the shadow)?

Charset 1 looks right to me (though I haven't done much testing in DOSbox myself). The save/load dialog is still a bit different since the original shows the selected line using a brighter colour, while we invert it. I don't know which method is most desirable.
