#12 closed defect (fixed)

Error/Warning dialogs broken on Windows

Reported by: mikepavone Owned by: mikepavone
Priority: major Milestone: 0.5.0
Component: user interface Version: 0.5.0-pre

It seems either the change in toolchain from old mingw running under Wine to a mingw64 cross compiler or a change in SDL version broke the error and warning dialogs. Instead of displaying the desired text garbage is shown instead

It seems vsnprintf is returning -1 on Windows when the buffer it is given is too small. I've added some code to detect this and use a simple heuristic for the new size instead.
