Descriptive Problem Summary: Underlined and struck-through maptext won't render with the appropriate styling due to DirectX's stupid decision not to include basic font rendering options because Microsoft is moronic.

Numbered Steps to Reproduce Problem:

1) Attach the maptext below to an atom.

Code Snippet (if applicable) to Reproduce Problem:
maptext = "<u>I don't work!</u><s>Neither do I!</s>"

Expected Results:

Underlined and strikethrough to work.

Actual Results:

They do not.

Does the problem occur:
Every time? Or how often? Always
In other games? Yep
In other user accounts? Yep
On other computers? Yep

When does the problem NOT occur?

When you lower your expectations of maptext and realize it's not all that great due to overhead and poor style handling =(

Did the problem NOT occur in any earlier versions? If so, what was the last version that worked? (Visit to download old versions for testing.)

Been a thing since maptext was introduced.


Draw the text manually the non-maptext way.
