#8260 closed patch
BASS: Correcting (?) the LINC terminal font
|Reported by:||eriktorbjorn||Owned by:|
|Cc:||Game:||Beneath a Steel Sky|
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 either.
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.
