The Darkening MAP11 exittext shifted left

Postby Player701 » Sun Nov 08, 2020 9:59 am

For some reason, the text displayed when leaving MAP11 of The Darkening is not centered on the screen:

Steps to reproduce:

  1. Get The Darkening
  2. Use the following command-line parameters: -iwad doom2 -deh dark.deh -warp 11
  3. Issue console command: special exit_normal 0

Tested in GZDoom 4.5.0 and g4.6pre-8-g6e3a4c590. This problem does not affect MAP06.

The problem is exactly what I thought: one of the lines (the last visible one, specifically) has lots of trailing space characters, and GZDoom tries to fit all of that to the screen, resulting in the text not being centered. Many of the level titles also have this problem, though not nearly as bad.

Perhaps the ZDoom team can address this by stripping trailing space from any text that is displayed.
