Lowercase "y" gets replaced incorrectly?

Postby phantombeta » Sun Dec 13, 2020 4:05 pm

The lowercase letter "y" gets replaced with the wrong glyph, at least in custom fonts. I'm not sure what the glyph it's replaced with is, but it's not any glyph from the custom font.
I'm not sure when it started happening, but it appears to have been between 4.3.3 and 4.4.2.

Steps to reproduce:
  • Start a new game with the provided example file

You are doing a few things that combined cause the problem. The original Doom font defines the '|' symbol with a bad index that's the small y - 121 instead of 124. This gets handled by the font loader for the internal font - but you define a new font as a FONTDEFS template - which quite efficiently works around the patching code and loads the bogus '|' in its incorrect place as 'y'.

Solution: Do not redefine a custom font by using 'STCFN as its template name. Use something unique.
