r6720 scoreboard stretching

Postby freezurbern » 02 Oct 2014 15:05

In an attempt to get a lot of bugs caught before 1.5, I have another! Though I'm not sure how easy this one is to fix :(
The scoreboard gets weird when there's a lot of player names that are long. I've seen this happen in regular games:

Looks like the spectators are stretching the width of the whole GUI, making the springs fill in the region above?

The outer dark grey / black isnt stretching with the in-game team colors, causing an awkward overlap. I think one way of fixing it would be making the spectators create a second row faster, after somehow detecting the names would be too wide. That is, if the dark grey background can't be stretched the same amount as the red/blue

uh, shouldn't there be a reasonable limit on characters for player names?
For every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction. For every freedom, there is a new limit. For every joy, a new sorrow. For every act of kindness, an unspeakable cruelty. Where someone succeeds, someone else fails. A new association means a new separation. Loyalty meets treachery, honor breeds disgrace, free expression yields censorship. Each piece of knowledge forms new ignorance. Even death gives rise to new life. But the balance of existence is the beginning of wisdom and discernment.
