AGI GR: Text wrapping broken on long strings in the mines

Reported by: raziel- Owned by: sev-
Priority: normal Component: Engine: AGI
Keywords: Cc:
Game: Goldrush

Description

ScummVM 0.12.0svn (Jan 18 2008 09:58:42) Features compiled in: Vorbis FLAC MP3 zLib MPEG2

While in the mines the game switches to little windows for displaying text. They are placed in the upper right corner of the screen.

It's perfectly fine for the games text as they stay rather short and fit there.

If one now enters some really long text ot just complete gibberish, like: "I love my little Buddha and water him every day, and someday my little Buddha will grow and go astray!" the games comes up with the little window, telling me it can't compute the entered sentence, in a broken window (savegame attached)

Gold Rush! (1.01 1989-01-13 aka 2.05 1989-03-09/Amiga/English)

AmigaOS4 gcc version 4.0.2 (AmigaOS build 20051012)

The input has to be a single long word that the parser doesn't recognize for this to happen because if you write a long sentence the parser may just give a message that it doesn't understand some not so long single word in the sentence.

So this happens with something like "asdfasdfasdfasdfasdfasdfasdfasdfasdf", or like it seems Raziel had done in the attached screenshot that he wrote the whole sentence without any spaces between words, that works too.

I just added a screenshot from WinUAE running the Amiga version of Gold Rush that shows how text should wrap in the mines. The string I gave to the parser was of maximum length and it read as follows: 12345678901234567890123456789012345 File Added: gr_amiga-correct_wrapping_in_mines.png
