Dev build/Linux: %loc not expanded (marked locaion confusion?)

Post by pango » Sat Dec 15, 2018 6:49 am

When asking for a quest's NPC location, town people may mark the location on the map but are unable to use the marked location's name in the conversation, as in
"Beggin' yer pardon XXX, but most folk know this. is west of where we're standing"
"Always glad ta help you, XXX. is a ways east of here"

PS: It doesn't seem consistent; It worked when I asked for the location of the quest giver

where is->location works a bit differently than where is->person
last one has a problem with %loc macro, yes.
the location name should be expanded with %loc macro - will take a look

but regarding just the general direction without map reveal, like (XXX being the pc name here):

Vanilla expands this in just the same way without either the person nor the location name

edit: I just tested in dfunity and it seems to work fine for me:

could you please countercheck?
