Bug fixes

  • GuiTextEditSliderCtrl:
    • fixed problems with the format wanting the number always in front
  • GuiSliderCtrl:
    • when the gui style is not providing a slider gfx then it's drawing the default slider instead of not drawing anything
  • GuiButtonCtrl/GuiTabCtrl:
    • fixed problems with some styles where the tiling for button graphics was not correctly specified, so that only the corners of the button were drawn
  • Video capture:
    • increased the video buffer size (was giving error sometimes when recording videos of huge size and lots of movement on the screen)
    • Linux: the capture options are not resetting anymore when changing the GUI style
    • Linux/Mac/Graal3D: fixed a problem with making screenshots (Alt-2) that could crash the client
    • Windows: fixed problems with only getting a white screen when doing screenshot or video
  • Updater:
    • the update process works better now without giving the message "Couldn't delete Graal.exe" on some machines (will work with the next update)
