#8260 closed patch

BASS: Correcting (?) the LINC terminal font

Reported by: eriktorbjorn Owned by:

Keywords: Cc:

This is probably a bug in the original game as well,
but it appears that the character set for the LINC
terminals is slightly different from the other two
character set. This causes noticeable glitches, not
just in the Swedish translation but in the English
version as well.

For instance, BRIEFING.DOC uses strange characters that
would be rendered as / < and > with the standard font.

This patch tries to fix the worst blemishes for the
English and Swedish verions. I know enough German to
see that this translation is missing yet another few
characters, but I haven't done anything about that.

Even some of the correct characters could do with a bit
of improvement, but I haven't done anything about that

Note that I've only tested this with v0.0372. I have no
idea if the patch breaks anything in other versions.

Added some other characters and made some things version
specific. In fact, some of these modifications make other
texts look worse, but still it's an overall improvement.
