Readable editor - no WYSIWYG anymore?

Recommended Posts

Which gui defenition did you use? Is it book_hand_jd_hand.gui ?


Edit, yeah that seems to cut of width and height.


Testcase: fm Mandrosella

Start mission

In console type notarget and teleport atdm_readable_mobile_book01_01

Book is locked away though, so maybe not the best testcase.


Is this bugged in Darkradiant or TDM though?

Word or entires lines are cut out...or did I mess up something?

Yes I've noticed this as well - there is definitely a bug somewhere.  It happened to me several times on my last FM and I had to keep fixing it.

I can confirm that book_hand_jd_hand.gui is not represented correctly in the Readable Editor. There were a handful of fonts I tried that had very small discrepancies between the editor and in-game version, but jd_hand gave me the most trouble when adding readables to my FM.

I don't know if it's related, but, I noticed since a few TDM versions that some text in readables in some missions is cut off. IIRC, also in the Training Mission.

Also, the two books in JackFarmer's screenshots aren't the same height. The lower one is way shorter than the upper one.

      Happy birthday to me!
      Yes, today's my birthday and as much as I want to play The Dark Mod, I won't until it's late Autumn, where it should be a bit chilly in my place and there's some wind too.
      For now, it's time to enjoy my birthday, if any of you want to play a great fan mission in my honour...Well that's asking too much, just play the mission because it's fun, not because of me, enjoy it yourself! 💪

      Took a break from TDM until I got my backlog under control. It's been months and it's still not "under control". Damnit.

      I sleep well at night knowing the player will never see the absolute nightmare that is my sealing brushwork outside the playable area. Only the pointfile can judge me now.

      Somehow I admire the fact that the material from Dune has now been filmed for the third time. Personally, I could never do much with the material, but as a child of the 80s, I of course know the David Lynch movie...and that movie was at least funny!
