• ANSI Posts in DDMsgReader

    From Codefenix@VERT/CONCHAOS to All on Tuesday, March 16, 2021 10:56:26
    I switched over to DDMsgReader (1.41) from the stock message reader yesterday. Really liking the way it works for browsing and viewing most messages.

    However, I notice most ANSI BBS ads get displayed... odd. At first I thought
    I was doing something wrong, so I checked the readme.txt file, and made sure my frame.js and scrollbar.js files were up to date. I also tried setting the readerInterfaceStyleForANSIMessages option to Traditional in DDMsgReader.cfg, but it does not seem to make a difference.

    Example of display problem in Scrollable mode:

    Same message in Traditional mode:
    https://conchaos.synchro.net/img/ddmrtrad.png

    Is this a known issue, and are there any other settings I can try?

    There are occasional...issues...with the display in DDMsgReader. NightFox is very responsive though. He may be able to fix it if he can reproduce the
    issue.

    Wasn't my intention, I promise. :) In fact, your "bill the cat" ANSI looks quite nice in the standard reader.
