Issue description
Item 428 imported from sourceforge.net tracker on 2013-01-28 18:21:29

When I load a mission in japan06n, and I start scrolling around, it crashes the game and says "... could not generate font surface" This happens every time, and typically in the same locations.

The same thing just happened in bunker01d... I'm not sure it's the map now.

The "could not generate font surface" error was meant to be fixed for RC5 but it turns out it was incorrectly applied (something got messed up during code merges!).

It usually only happened when resolution was set to below 1024x768 (although this would trigger it quite easily). It is certainly possible something could have triggered it higher resolutions.

I'll leave this as open for now, but RC6 should be out in the near future so please re-test using this version and report back if the issue remains.

That is exactly what happened. I had just switched my resolution down to 800x600 so I could run it in a window. I put it back to fullscreen, and it works great now smileys/2.png

Looking forward to RC6!!
