"STR_STATS" - Button to small
« on: October 06, 2017, 03:14:04 pm »
Hi coders, can you please make the "STR_STATS"-button a bit larger.  Translated to german the button-text should be "STATISTIKEN".

Translated to English, it should be "STATISTICS" :)

Compromises were made...

Hmm, unfortunately there is no abbreviation for "STATISTIKEN" in the german language.
Not even for the singular (STATISTIK) is the button large enough.
Making the button slightly bigger is not a big effort or are there other reasons to speak against it?

In OXCE+, this is how the 3 versions of that screen (and the button) look, see attached.
I would have to dynamically resize the button, or have 3 different buttons and hide/show them accordingly.

In OpenXcom, I guess it can be resized, since it's missing the 3rd screen and the "sell" button...

Summary: can be done, just saying there were reasons... mostly laziness :P

I did not know that there are several screens / buttons working together. I thought you could simply enlarge the button. All in all, it is not bad, but if you could make it would be nice ...
But when we are already ...
Perhaps in the monthly report you can move the marked places slightly to the left and "STR_RATING_EXCELLENT" slightly wider, as it is in the original xcom, becouse theres missing one letter...

The screen shows the stat improvements of the units which participated in the battle, so you may want to search a german word for team (soldiers), or experience, or improvements (gains)

There are no 5 letter words in German language, unless they come from English :)
Just kidding... there are some, but only few :P

Team = Team
Soldiers = Soldaten
Experience = Erfahrung
Improvements = Verbesserung / Fortschritt ?
Gains = Gewinn (doesn't really mean the same thing as in English)
