and you said you bought new glasses and a bigger display. tsk tsk :lol:


DiM, if it is a tilde then it is squashed because it doesn't have the same structure as the other one on portimao and looks to me like it is distorted, and yes i am looking at it woth new monitor and new glasses, that's why i can see the difference if you can't.

And i ask Gimil....if you would please advise me on this situation.


Im not really sure what symbols are what. But i did copy and paste this name from a portugese player who gave a list of name canges so im assuming its correct. As for it being distored and squashed, im not really sure who to go about fixing that without changing the font again.



Gimil....these are the symbols...

~ tilde [keystrokes = Alt + 0227] = ã
- (over the a) is called a macron available in your character map Unicode 0101 - copy and paste into your vector

have a look at your vector and see if it is a straight line (macron) over the a or a tilde

hope this helps.

It might be something to do with the a underneath it?!

Can Gimil reattempt the wording on that one to make sure this is how it always comes out...

I agree with Cairns that it looks different to the other one?!

Gimil...i'm sorry if this tilde issue has caused an inconvenience for you, but i wanted to clarify what was happening there because to me it is a noticebale difference.

If you cannot change it, then i am happy that you have tried.

The rest of the map looks spot on to me.

The reason for this angle was becasue:

1. size restrictions were tight.

2. Having hte map at this angle stopped the map looking to vertical gameplay wise

This isn't a flame forum, thank you for your opinions though, please state them objectively and politely in the future. Gimil, expect some news in the next few days (or maybe today).
