Description

In the current state, Legacy 2.76 has issue of scaling text in both menus and game, case shown in the attached pictures with examples in how it should look after so then languages can display properly. The bigger issue: some parts of the interface texts are hard to shorten, more so maintain the same meaning, especially titles, some checkbox labels too. May this be solved if the UI windows are widened a bit.

See screenshots.

Here are the edits I did:

Main Menu Button Windows

// Defines //
#define WINDOW_WIDTH 128 value changed to 138

// Window //
WINDOW, 50 ) value changed to 60

file to modify: legacy/pak3_v2.75_dirty.pk3/ui/main.menu

Host Game Advanced Checkboxes

original code
(example line)

CHECKBOXALIGNX+6+2, 164, .5*((SUBWINDOW_WIDTH)-6), 10, _("Game config:"), .2, 24, 8, "vote_allow_config", _("Allow players to vote for game config") )

tweaked code
(example line)
CHECKBOXALIGNX+6+2, 164, .5*((SUBWINDOW_WIDTH)+6+28), 10, _("Game config:"), .2, 24, 8, "vote_allow_config", _("Allow players to vote for game config") )

file to modify: legacy/pak3_v2.75_dirty.pk3/ui/hostgame_advanced.menu

Note: I am yet to further dig into the interface properties, made these changes from what I remember with idTech engine so what I propose might require further polishing.
