[1.30] Network: non-std PC name crash the game

Tue, 23 Jun 2009 14:40:07

Crimson Wizard

If a host machine's computer name has non-standart (non-latin/non-numeric) letters and another machine starts searching for games (e.g. in LAN), following crash occurs on that second (guest) PC:
- (engine.Widget.DrawText)
- VStr::GetChar
- VWidget::DrawNString
- VWidget::DrawText
- RunFunction
- (engine.Widget.DrawText 0)
- RunFunction
- (uibase.MenuSList.OnDraw 48)
- VObject::ExecuteFunction
- (uibase.MenuSList.OnDraw)
- VWidget::DrawTree
- VWidget::DrawTree
- VWidget::DrawTree
- VRootWidget::DrawWidgets
- SCR_Update
- Host_Frame

ERROR: Not a valid UTF-8
I suggest at least making normal error message for this case, because not every user can guess what is going on <!-- s;) --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_wink.gif" alt=";)" title="Wink" /><!-- s;) -->
