Using <br> in the Title Line in the description.ext does not work.
Closed, ResolvedPublic


If you use the description.ext file to set the title of your mission, it will not wrap the text to the next line, even if you use <br> ( or <br />) to try and force the carriage return. Not a critical bug, but would be nice to have longer mission names. {F23709}

Steps To Reproduce
  1. Make a mission in the editor.
  2. Create a description.ext file and set the Title to something long... like "Guess What is for Dinner at the Cafe".
  3. Start the mission...

You will see, "Guess What is for D"

could you please upload a repro mission with description.ext file displaying the problem? It would help us a lot. Thank you.

will do tonight.

sorry about the delay. It is uploaded. All vanilla.


thank you for the repro mission. I was not able to see anything wrong, though. It could be that I am using very powerful PC and my loading screen is too short to display the mission name (tried SP, MP and MP on dedicated server). Could you please upload a short video (on youtube for example) where the problem can be seen?

Max Length OnLoadName is 22 symbols and one line!
And rightly br/(br /)With <>
Not <br \>

Sorry for my Bad English

Maybe need to close?
