I just installed tintin++ 1.99.7 on snow leopard and the text occasionally doesn't display correctly as demonstrated in the screen captures I provide below :

As you can see in the images provided, the problems only occur at the beginning of a line, and sometimes it displays some unknown code but other times it simply cuts off the first half of the line, just about. I was previously using 1.99.4, also on snow leopard, and I did not experience this problem then.

I'm not familiar with programming or much of anything, so I apologize for not being able to provide more information than this. If there's any more information I can get for you, tell me and I'll try my best. Smile

Hiya,

Looks like packet fragmentation to me which is handled slightly different since 1.99.5. You should try setting:

#config {packet patch} {0.5} and see if that helps.


Depending on your mud this in turn might give a 0.5 second delay for prompts to be displayed. One way around that is using: #split or #split 0 0 - possibly in combination with: #gag {^> $} to get rid of the prompt entirely.

I tried your suggestion about packet patch, not only on 0.5, but also 1, 2 and 3. The problem persisted on all those settings, and I started taking a closer look at the problem and saw something I didn't notice before. Below is a more full-window image capture of my most recent test session, where I stood in the same room and spammed 'look' several times to get instances of the room both when nothing is wrong and when something is wrong so hopefully the problem will be more clear.

Looking at this image, there are seven instances of the same room, and three of them have messed up slightly. The first instance is displaying a '39;49m' at the beginning of the line, but otherwise is fine. The last two have parts of the line swapped with each other, though. I don't know what's going on here, though, and I'm hoping this helps a little more. Smile

Is there any more information I can get for you that will help more?

It's quite clearly caused by packet fragmentation, but on my test mud #config {packet patch} fixes the problem.

Can you double check that you were setting packet patch correctly?

Ah, you were correct; #config {packet patch} {0.5} did fix the problem. I just had another #config {packet patch} {0} in the file I didn't know was there until I looked more carefully, that was messing with my testing of your fix suggestion, sorry. But it's fixed now, I just tested it and I'm not getting the messed-up text lines anymore. Thank you very much! Big Smile
