Summary0002666: Background for red-alert "downloading new orders..." message not positioned correctly in custom HUD layouts
DescriptionIf the "downloading new orders..." message appears and a custom HUD layout is being used, the background for that message (but not the text itself) will be positioned and scaled for a 1024x768 HUD, regardless of the current HUD's actual resolution.
Steps To Reproduce1) Make sure that a mod with a widescreen HUD (such as FSPort 3.3 with MediaVPs) is selected and that your game is configured for a widescreen resolution.

2) Play a mission that ends in red alert, such as one of the attached missions.

3) When the "downloading new orders..." message appears, notice where the message background is. It will probably be below and to the right of the message text.
Additional InformationThis problem also occurs in r8892 and RC6.

The attached patch has fixed the issue in my testing with your missions - could you also run some tests and let me know if this fixes it for you as well? Thanks

I can't get your patch to apply. Could you make another one? I'm applying it as instructed here:

I think I know what was wrong with the patch - here's a new one.

I still can't apply your patch. I've applied FSO patches before; is this one supposed to be applied differently? (I'm trying to apply this to revision 8897, by the way.)

Sorry about this (one of the pitfalls of using git instead of svn...) - please try this one. If it still doesn't work, please send me a screenshot of the error you get from TortoiseSVN. Oh, and also send me an example of a patch you've applied before so I can figure out what I'm doing wrong :)

Here are the errors that I get. The first error appeared only with your first and third attempts, but the second error appeared with all three.

As for what you're doing wrong, the only thing that I can think of is that you're saving the patch outside the fs2_open folder (or whatever your working folder is); it should be saved inside (but not in the subfolders).

I can't remember exactly what patches I've applied in the past, but the one posted to Mantis 0002657 works for me.

fingers crossed - this one should work. You're right, my patches are made from one level higher than the "fs2_open" directory, my local git repository is a copy of everything at trunk (e.g. includes the fsoinstaller & Launcher) which has been causing me various issues. In this patch I've removed the extra directory from the path in the patch, which is what I did in the 2nd patch, however the 2nd patch had the wrong revision...
2012-06-22 20:28   
I figured out what the problem was: the patches that you uploaded had spaces instead of tabs in the third and fourth lines. Changing those allowed me to apply the patch.

Anyway, I tested your patch and it worked fine.
