|Summary||0009507: Title cropping for long player names broken|
0.16-a0-1937-gb62f961 (Nov 2014, wheals) introduced bugs with long player names if title were to be cropped, namely "the" no longer being removed in the brief version, but code still calculating HUD sizes as though it were, and tacking a comma onto the title as well.
A diff illustrating that particular problem is attached (not as patch, since the bug should probably be tackled in a different way).
This regression was reported to the developer responsible for it multiple times over the past months with no apparent reaction from their end.
Another issue with console HUD and long names/titles is that for DGL builds, the message indicator will always overwrite seven chars (the length of "(Hit _)") even if no message is present, which is also not accounted for in other calculations, cf. update_message_status in output.cc: https://github.com/crawl-ref/crawl-ref/blob/master/crawl-ref/source/output.cc#L518 [^]
This results in output such as (player name: verylongnametest)
| (Hit _) | |verylongnam, the Victor of a Thousa |
I hope this is fixable to only print the DGL message indicator if actual messages are present, and utilizing HUD redraw flags from output.cc to check when a title bar redraw needs to happen. If it's not, however, the available HUD width should be reduced by seven/eight chars for all respective calculations.
