[Dominik] [for 0.16][0.15.31] save filename truncated. fix could be mouseover

Post by foodfactorio » Tue Aug 08, 2017 12:32 am

Hi, the ability to save our games, using a longer text name, is very useful.

But, the loading screen, only shows a certain amount of characters. (i can understand this from a UI perspective)
but, would you be able to add a (hopefully quick) fix, to have the full name appear as a popup next to it, such as whenever we hold the mouse over the file?

if the game can read the filename and show some of it, im hoping there is an easy way to have the rest of it shown somehow but am not sure :)

here is a screenshot to show you the last 2 (named) saves, which look like they are the same, but might not be:
(thanks)

Hi, we have added the tooltip to very long file names, as per your instruction :) Will be in 0.16.
