Little bug (?) in the Download Menu

In the download menu, missions are marked with * for updates and # for translations, but this is not visible in longer titles.
Perhaps it would be better to mark it at the beginning of the title, or at the edge of the menu.

Good catch! Maybe these icons could just be place in front of the names instead?

I think this would be the simplest solution, another would be to use a newline in longer titles.

And i still want a system to search these missions by date and status :c

I use the wiki for this. The page https://wiki.thedarkmod.com/index.php?title=Fan_Missions_for_The_Dark_Mod has I think all the features you need. I just note which one I want to play and then download it next time I run TDM.

Speaking of integrated support, maybe the game itself should have some links to those pages so people don't to search on the net? Or at least a link to the homepage and the forum, for example behind the version number on the main menu?

Why would they need to search the net? www.thedarkmod.com, click on Missions at the top right.

EDIT: Oh you mean in game. Maybe just put a link to the main site at the bottom of the page, but honestly......if you have the game installed.......you've been to the main site I would hope to get the installer.

I always assumed I'd taste like boot leather.

The problem with not seeing the * and # can be fixed by putting it at the start, but the titles don't fully show and this looks bad anyway.

 

A possible solution is the requirement of a certain max amount of characters in mission titles. The existing missions have to be forced changed, to fit the format.

So Crucible of Omens: Behind closed doors

becomes COO: Behind closed doors  (if that's short enough)

Then the full title can be seen in the description.

 

Another way is make the text smaller. There's probably gui code for this..

This is something I regularily do in my Unofficial Patch as it is valid for the mission list inside the game too. Instead of creating weird abbreviations like COO I chose to number the campaigns, so this would become Crucible of Omens X, with the full name in the mission description.

      Beams, beams, beams...
      Support beams, and cross beams, and then beams to fixate the support beams to the cross beams. The more beams you have in a map, the better. There's walls, floors and ceilings, but the rest of the map is pretty much just beams. Beams makes a thief happy.
