[Player menu] Player name with many colors truncated

Post by Edward-san »

If your name contains too many color characters, the player settings menu will show the name as truncated.

For example, try this name:

Code: Select all

it'll appear as "playe". It's due to the truncation done in this place (in fact, the number of characters for that 'player' name is 20, while the limit is 15).
Interestingly, the MAXPLAYERNAME limit is not enforced when changing the name by console.
