Confusing Text problem in 1.8Beta2

Post by Star Gazer » December 12th, 2009, 10:55 pm

I'm getting a problem when playing 'Legend of Wesmere' in the scenario 'Elves' Last Stand'. When switching to giving orders to the allies, the screen is failing to display the 'Exit' box from the pop-up orders menu. This managed to really confuse me as to how to get back out of the menu when I had finally decided what to do!! :roll:

I am running in Mac OSX 10.5.8 on a dual 4-core 2.8GHzMacPro, 8GB RAM, nVidia 8800GT video.

The console tells me this:
12/12/2009 22:30:19 [0x0-0x3c03c].org.wesnoth.Wesnoth[314] (process:314): Pango-CRITICAL **: _pango_engine_shape_covers: assertion `PANGO_IS_FONT (font)' failed
12/12/2009 22:30:27 [0x0-0x3c03c].org.wesnoth.Wesnoth[314] 20091212 22:30:27 error gui/layout: ttext::set_text text '<span size='big'>Exit</span>' has broken markup, set to normal text.
This second item would seem to be the culprit.

I've included a snapshot to display the problem.

You do realize that if you press Cmd+Shift+3, it'll take a screenshot in PNG format and put it on your desktop, right? And we could be seeing it in the webpage, instead of having to download some PDF...

Fixed in [rev]40214[/rev], invalid markup was used in one of the configuration files. Fix will be available in the next wesnoth release.
Thanks for reporting.
