Issues with the new input system

Apr 19, 2009 by DX-MON
Ok, so I know it looks like I got it right the first time round, but for some reason, something's stopped working and the input system is now causing text that is 1 character-code out from what it should be to be displayed...... IE D now displays as C.....

been looking at a fix, I can either re-align the letters by changing the base-number for font-rendering in OpenGL, which works, but is hack-ish...
or I can modify the input to the render function (which on running the debugger on it, is correct) to take into account the difference between display and input..... again hack-ish.....
or I can modify the input as it's typed - again hack-ish....

not sure why this is happening all of a sudden, but in 5 builds of Future Consciousness and PokÚLegends it has broken....

I'll post again once I've thought some more on a fix for this bug
I'll also include in that post what I do about passwords and needing to make them anonymous.... (Put *'s on screen instead of the actual password and store the actual password somewhere behind the scenes)
