[Resolved 0.15.3] Background: question marks with Classic font

Post by L57 »

Hi, I found there is a problem with character history text with Classic font. Some histories contain question marks between paragraphs, and some do not. I have seen at least two such examples.

I did not find such a topic on this forum, perhaps no one noticed this due to the fact that everyone uses a modern font. Below is an example:

I'll move this into Help & Support. This is definitely worth clarifying as a bug, if it happens as such.

Also, what version of DFU are you running? Does this happen with no mods running?

It doesn't depend on mods. I'm running v0.14.5 DFU.

You can reproduce this particular one yourself, choosing in custom class:

Primary skills: Archery, Stealth, Short Blade
Major Skills: Long Blade, Dodging, Critical Strike
Minor Skills: Medical, Spriggan, Axe, Swimming, Climbing, Jumping

But there were also other custom classes which generated background text with question mark, as I mentioned.

I replicated the error, and submitted a PR to fix it: https://github.com/Interkarma/daggerfal ... /pull/2525

Also because the problem self-heals if you save/reload. So it's only visible on newly created characters
