I'm playing 3Kingdoms (www.3k.org, 3k.org:3000) on TinTin++ v2.01.1 compiled on Cygwin.

In some rooms, the color coding gets broken and the room description display is incorrect on terminal. However, the right data is received by Tintin++: it seems to be terminal display issue only. Saved TinTin++ buffer shows the correct room description.

A room description in terminal: "EA NAME: New World Fitness [Talimar]" is displayed incorrectly, with no color.
Code:

                                                                   \ | /
Small Stairway (return,u)                                         -U-*---
                                                                   / | \


You stand at the entrance to a truly evil place.  Masses
of spandex brush by you, covering mounds of flesh both
firm and flabby alike.  Your nostrils are assaulted by
a sickly sweet odour.  The foul stench is a combination
of fruity, melon-smelling air freshener, tainted by an
over-powering scent of sweat.  There seems to be a number
of people both coming and going through here.
    There are two obvious exits: return, up
EA NAME: New World Fitness [Talimar]
AREA RATING -> Use Vigilance
Monster class range since inception: 35 to 75

The room portion of saved buffer in RAW:
Code:

                                                                   \ | /

                                                                   / | \

This problem happens rather randomly.

What's causing the problem? How can it be fixed?

If it happens randomly could be a packet loss issue, so you can try using this:

#configure {packet patch} {0.05}

(You can play with the value to see if the issue goes away)

Also there's another command that can be relevant to this situation:

#CONFIG {COLOR PATCH} {ON|OFF}

It seems like "#config {PACKET PATCH} {0.5}" may have solved the problem--for now, I'm not noticing any broken texts.

"#config {PACKET PATCH} {0.05}" makes no difference.

If I notice the problem again, I'll report.
