[Let me know if this isn't the right place for this post]

This is a thread to discuss this issue: 

I created a bug here: https://bugs.thedarkmod.com/view.php?id=5236

As for duzenko's comment in the bug tracker:

Quote

what about hypothetical "appendSpawnArg" function?
You start with a short string with a call to setSpawnArg, then call appendSpawnArg a few times dynamically to build your long text?
Would it work for you or you need something more flexible?

An alternative: use spawn arg accessors in setSpawnArg. I.e.
setSpawnArg("page1_body", "Some text to start with.");
setSpawnArg("page1_body", "${page1_body} More text to follow.");

Either of those would be acceptable, from my point of view.

I notice that the Issue has been Fixed. Can I ask which fix was implemented?

Also, one of the comments by duzenko in the bugtracker mentions this thread: https://forums.thedarkmod.com/index.php?/topic/20365-script-string-length-128-workaround/&tab=comments#comment-446786. I don't have access to this thread for some reason. Is it important that I read this thread? If so, I'll need access.

Thanks

      Please, can we finally group the missions by year in the game menu?

      I vaguely recall someone recently complained about two-sided materials (curtains?) not getting lighting from both sides
      I just found a piece of code that's supposed to do just that
      Where was that discussed? (@nbohr1more?)

      I still play classic Doom (albeit with user-made mods and maps rather than the original campaign) on a regular basis. A game from the early 90's which has still got a healthy following in 2022. Pretty amazing.

      I'm beginning to understand why people who aren't into social clubbing "don't last long" on this project, and why it's so full of holes. When moderators are siding with bullies, by closing down threads that they derail, then I start to wonder if I should support the platform to begin with.
      I'm sure that the core development is solid, but when you're constantly tone policed and bullied, and moderators are playing into it too, then the project will just drive away talent, and replace it with socialites instead. ...and without talent, you only end up with a small skeleton crew trying to do everything themselves.
      ...so Dragofer and Airship Ballet, and all you other socialites, you win. From now on I'll just keep to myself. You'll never be able to do my work, but at least you'll be happy together, and that's what matters to you.
       
      Update
      Actually, I have to revise my statement:
      I actually messaged greebo - the top dog, I gather - about nbohr1more's outburst of insanity below, and since I haven't even heard back from him, I just have to assume that there's not a single core programmer here, who's not backing nbohr's threats. ...and that's bad.
      ...so if you're a newbie reading this, or an honest soul like ZergRush, then just slowly back out of these forums, run, and don't look back. This is nothing more than a cult posing as a game development project, using Thief and IDTech4 to sucker hopefuls in, to do work for them, while trying to cajole them into something going on behind the scenes, which apparently - according to nbohr - is something that should be hidden from the state. These people aren't programmers - they don't even understand things like how to fix the simplest bugs. All they have, is an engine, and an IP, and some sort of fascist social cult. There was some other project I saw being made in the Unreal Engine. Try joining that project. ...or start a project of your own. Anything but this asylum.
      Hopefully that was "divisive" enough for a final post, because at this point I really want people to leave this place. This project is, on a management level, just awful garbage, run by garbage people, apparently from the top down, and I'm just glad that they have a garbage place to stay, together, and hopefully forever.
