[03:18:06] <brada> everything works! :p
[03:19:10] <brada> this shot is better: https://www.dropbox.com/s/lofm3u8lx5puph4/Screenshot%202014-02-08%2020.18.51.png
[03:19:28] <brada> forgot I had 5px padding for debug purposes
[03:19:47] <brada> needs tweaking tho
[03:19:53] <brada> because here is the original
[03:20:11] <brada> http://lparchive.org/Baldurs-Gate-2-and-Throne-of-Bhaal/Update%2012/35-BG2SoAch8024.jpg
[03:20:45] <brada> i know that the original has the same padding around the cap for all lines, but we have been doing it with the first line neighboring the cap
[03:20:51] <brada> which I like better :)
[03:21:54] <brada> FYI: the red fill is for exclusion zones, the white rects are the sprite boundaries
[03:22:15] <brada> green are for layout rects but you only see those when they dont match the sprite bounds
[03:26:39] <brada> unfortunately im just guessing that the padding :/
[03:30:14] <brada> this looks pretty close to the original: https://www.dropbox.com/s/byn2x5nf31gw7q8/Screenshot%202014-02-08%2020.30.02.png
[03:30:23] <brada> other than the previously mentioned first line
[03:31:25] <brada> and its annoying that the cap get a chunk of wasted area below the character, but that isnt actually a problem
[03:31:50] <brada> just a side effect of how the original data is setup

[03:35:06] <Lightkey> I'm still amazed at how difficult a problem that is
[03:36:29] <Lightkey> and grateful for your work because that was the first problem I found when I tried out GemRB the first time and I prefer waiting for a problem to be solved before I go look for more ;p

[03:41:19] <brada> heh, yeah it was the first bug i "fixed" but really i just made a complicated mess worse
[03:41:28] <brada> tho it did work at least
[03:43:14] <brada> and the problem wasnt terribly difficult. the huge headaches were mostly due to quirks of the original, and our TextArea/Font implementation
[03:43:43] <brada> I ended up gutting both clasess almost empty and rewriting them from scratch
[03:52:37] <brada> anyway i feel ive earned a beer so I'm gonna go do that now

[16:12:50] <brada> fuzzie: i was able to figure out my problem (if you didnt see already)
[16:22:55] <brada> chapter text is much less hacky now: https://www.dropbox.com/s/qosuu4fhtucs74k/Screenshot%202014-02-08%2020.59.17.png
[16:23:12] <brada> no more needing to shove newlines in front of the text
[16:35:22] <fuzzie> yes, it's all very impressive
[16:37:12] <brada> im glad you think so :")
