Resurge.wad total time doesn't fit on intermission screen

Sat Nov 21, 2020 2:21 am

Could be related to this, but probably not, since this isn't part of the menu code... or is it?

Affected PWAD: Resurgence

Starting from GZDoom 4.5.0, the "total time" counter does not fit entirely on the intermission screen.
m_cleanscale does nothing to change this, and I have set it to true.




In GZDoom 4.4.2 and below, the intermission screen looks OK:

There's a separate CVAR for this screen - wi_cleantextscale. But the total time display may need a bit of tweaking for cases where such a large font is used for it.

Thanks, I'll set wi_cleantextscale to true in the meantime.

From the duplicate, it also happens in Eviternity and Ancient Aliens.

It doesn't happen in PRBoom+, but why? Is it becouse the minimum resolution both in ZDoom and PRBoom was 320x240? As i stated i don't know how to change the virtual resolution so that everything looks good and fits (if that's the solution that is).

Best solution would be to move the counters so that they do fit. But keep in mind that GZDoom shows extra information that Vanilla Doom did not (particularly the total time tally), and in order to keep this the time tallys *must* be moved. If keeping the original 320x200 alignment is a concern (I don't know if it does this or not) then this could be done as a user option, but you simply can't have both, unless you make the total time tally a smaller font.

May be but the same problem happens with some wads in the main menu and you can't move anything there.
