Problem
« on: June 20, 2014, 10:40:54 pm »
Hallo

Es handelt sich dabei um die Textlänge im Game,

geht mal ins Spiel und klickt Stützpunt dann weiter auf Einrichtungen Bauen. Dort seht ihr der Fehler ! Es handelt sich um den Text Außerirdischen-Klimazelle ,dieser Text ist aber Original aus dem alten DOS Spiel (1994) Und wird in der alten DOS Version korrekt dargestellt.

Ich vermute hier liegt ein Problem seitens der Programmierer vor !
Wer kann da helfen?

Hello

This is the text length in the game,

times goes into the game and click base then continue on facilities construction. There, you see the error! This is the text Außerirdischen-Klimazelle , but this text is original from the old DOS game (1994) and is displayed correctly in the old DOS version.

I suspect this is a problem on the part of the programmer!
Who can help?

German Version

Hello,

The text fits in the original because the programmers allowed the text go out of bounds:



As you can see, the text exceeds the highlighted area.

In OpenXcom, this would be problematic because we have scrollbars that would cover up the text, making it unreadable, so we have to split it in two:



Hope that explains it.

You have the possibility to create an account on GetLocalization (https://www.getlocalization.com/openxcom/) and propose your own translation ( something like "Außerirdischen-Klim." ?)

Then ask other german (or not) members to vote for it so that it replace obsolete translation in future night builds

PS : beware that some strings may be used in different screens
