[4.7.0pre-197-g2fd811357] Brighter translated font colors?

Postby grahf78 » Sun Sep 19, 2021 10:33 pm

In the latest dev builds, font color translations are producing brighter/different colors. The vanilla fonts seem to be OK, but it is noticeable with custom fonts.

See the images below. Also, I've attached a pk3 with a sample that can be used to replicate it.


4.7.0-pre (easier to see in the Author and Finished colors, but if you look closely, all the translated colors are a little brighter than 4.6.1. "Test Map" is untranslated and the color remains the same)

It's easier to see the difference by opening the 2 images in 2 separate tabs, put the images at full size, and then toggling/tabbing through both tabs.

This is the result of a font system refactoring I did 4 months ago. One important part of this was to do the color range calculation in true color instead of the 256 colors of the base palette. In some cases where colors would be a poor match for the palette this can indeed cause slightly brighter or darker colors.
