Center names in textboxes

Post by NickWright7002 »

Pretty quick n' easy suggestion.
Fit names by center in a textbox, so it looks more authentic to PW:AA games. (The name in the plate is aligned to center).

I did a bit of checking. In most AA games, it's centered, but it's left aligned in DD and SoJ. Either way, this should indeed be a quick and easy suggestion. I'll probably do it, but I'll need to consult with the other semi-active dev, and I'll leave the matter up for feedback first.

A better solution would be to let the player customize this, but we don't have the infrastructure for that.

I'd say we center it, since AAO is "emulating" the DS/GBA games, not the 3DS games - as such, we should probably stick to their style.

Perhaps we could make it customizable if we ever get around to implementing different UI skins (and perhaps define it on a per-skin basis).
