#594 closed defect (fixed)

ALL: Text output bug

Reported by: SF/dfabulich Owned by: fingolfin
Priority: normal Component: Engine: SCUMM
Version: Keywords:
Cc: Game: Indiana Jones 4


Lots of dialog text in this game is wrapping incorrectly; lines of text are getting clipped. (This was working as of very recently, but I can't swear as to when.)

To reproduce, start the game afresh and hit ESC twice. Indy should say "I'm back!" and Kerner will give the line: "You don't look at all well, Dr Jones" but the line will be clipped. Many other long lines will also be clipped throughout the game. A screenshot is attached.

I'm using English Talkie CD, files copied to the harddrive. I'm on Win2K using the latest Win32 snapshot: ScummVM 0.2.82 CVS Built on Nov 27 2002 12:09:16

It affects other games, as well, e.g. the MI1 intro. It's as if the letters are spaced a bit further apart than they used to be. At first I thought it was Fingolfin's string.cpp cleanup, but I don't see any obvious errors in it... I'll have to take a closer look later today.

I also looked over my cleanup and it seems fine - I really only restructured some stuff. Doesn't mean I made a mistake doing so, of course.

Can you narrow down since when this happens?

Found it! Accidentally used "true" instead of "false"
