  • Issue #2 after upgrading

    Hi again ...

    another small thing I noticed after upgrading to Nov 2009 is when I load a new screen (one that is not preloaded or had already been loaded) is that for a split second the screen populates all the labels with a funny character - it's a ? inside a square - and then the label text appears correctly.

    I tried to get a scrncap but I'm just not quick enough.

    It only happens the first time I load a new screen ...

    I get that if i reload the skin in the car b/c comp isn't fast enough to completely draw the entire screen before its shown. This is mostly to do with the adding of uncicode support to labels, where as before the screen would just be shown w/o any labels till they got drawn, but now it shows the boxes till it can catch up.

      My computer is fairly slow (Centrino - 1.2Ghz) and I have never seen an issue with it, but I can try to add some extra prevention against displaying that.

        I'm running a 1.6ghz VIA C7 proc with 1 GB ram but I've not seen this before. Now it's not a major problem or anything, as I siad it happens so fast I can't even scrn cap it, but it's just something that has appeared (for me) in this version.

                Yes indeed it is the 12/09 version. RRVER returns 01/12/2009 on the loader screen.

                This is a scrn cap of the systemlock screen .. you'll see the bottom bar has the character. This should be a blank label.

                  Can you tell me the name of the FONT of that label ? Also, I would like to know what regional settings you use (if it's not English).

                  Thanks,

                    Getting the same result here as well....

                    I have seen the same thing, and chalked it up to something on my system not being right till I saw this post. It started with the November release as far as I can remember....

                    Here is a screen capture of the normal main menu:






                    Here is a capture if a "reloadskin" command is executed: (Using the 12/01/09 release). The screens stays like this for around a second till the skin is completely reloaded.





                    Specs:



                    I am using the Standard windows Ariel font for the labels.

                      The font is called Calibri.
                      And the regional settings are English (Ireland) .. as shown here.
