1.2.8.27915 Briefing Screen Issue

Recommended Posts

It appears the 27915 update has caused a problem for the briefing screen.

 

See screen shot below. Previous version the briefing screen was fine. I checked the mission file and the full text is there but cannot be displayed.

 

Hope this gets fixed soon. :(

It's not released yet. It's part of the Tactical Training Qualification Campaign you can read about here.

 

The briefing is 250 lines long, 1565 words, 9681 characters. It displays fine in the previous version but in 27915 it's truncated.

It should be easy to reproduce. Just make a big briefing text file copy and paste it into the Mission briefing text area. Save the mission, then view the text when you start the mission.

 

It will appear truncated. I can send you the sample from our mission via PM if you like.

I have been creating PDF files lately for mission briefings and have seen this numerous times when copying briefings from various missions to Open Office. I have seen some characters that look like chinese letters. The latest update has brought other negative issues that I won't bother mentioning here.

ok, so you are hitting a character limit, I'll look into it.

Thanks SiThSpAwN!

 

I did some more testing and found that missions created in 27203 (previous version) are ok with full text displayed however if run in 27915 they get truncated.

 

If you copy the text into a 27915 mission and save it, then it also gets truncated by the ME.

 

I'm going to stick with 27203 for now and hope that this gets fixed soon.

 

Some one else reported that mission scripts also appear to be truncated - it might be related. Here is the thread.

Unfortunately still broken in 1.2.9.30604 but Wags did indicate this was not a bug fix release.

 

I hope this gets fixed soon. :(

Same for the Do Script windows in event Actions.
