FF: Subtitles for looking at inventory out of screen

Reported by: SF/simsaw Owned by: Kirben
Priority: normal Component: Engine: AGOS

Game: The Feeble Files

Description

When looking at an inventory item when having subtitles enabled in the Daily Build of 18th August 2007, the subtitle is displayed depending on Feeble's position in the room. The more he is to the right, the more the text is also to the right in the Oracle until it is out of the screen and no more readable.
I would suggest to center the text in the Oracle to avoid this problem.

Travis, could this problem be addressed? Or subtitles is not an encouraged option?

No, as the subtitles position is defined by the scripts.

The scripts of The Feeble Files were never designed for displaying subtitles.

I checked and you're indeed right. Moving the subtitles to the centre of the screen when looking at an object would be a 'dirty hack' solution. I'd recommend instead now something else:
Just don't move the screen to the left when calling Oracle but rather leave it at the position where it actually is, so that Feeble is visible and his subtitles are displayed. One might say the 'scroll' to the left side is done in order to save memory cache, but I think this can't be, because the program would crash rather than just display the subtitles outside of the screen.
Would it be possible to make the screen just remain at the position when Oracle or some other screen (arcade/wire arrangement) is called or is this also done by scripts?
