[bug r2591] Convoi messages Obscured
« on: July 23, 2009, 01:59:02 AM »
possible bug or at least not performing optimally

When Display Convoi Message is set to mouse over when train it waiting for to be loaded. The tip is obscured by the station name.
I have to cycle the station name/wait bar to hide the station name.

I understand with the other settings for convoi messages that you may not want them always displayed  and so obscure the staion or town names but I think the message should be displayed to be able to be read and long enough to do so.

Trucks loading or unloading and heading straight off have their messages pop up and down too quickly. (when all convoi messages is selected)   

it a fine balancing act of course.

These messages are draw by the vehicles and as such neither can be drawn over a station signs in front (since they are draw later) nor shown for other times, since then the state of the vehicle already changed.
