1.23 Small Fixes

Hello everyone! We hope all of you are having a nice summer.

During the past months there were a few reported bugs which needed fixing. Thank you to everyone who sent us detailed bug reports!



Fixes:
-When an npc's talking panel had a lot of conversation options, scrolling trough them with the mouse wheel could caused problems.
-In rare occasions when multiple containers were open and item divides were issued, ability selection could end up selecting the wrong slot.
-The auto closing of multiple containers (when the player moved away from the containers) sometimes could cause a freeze.
-The game now detects if the desktop resolution is really high and warns the player of the possible DPI scaling issues.
-Minor character panel tooltip fixes.

Gameplay:
-Mana now regenerates every 4 turns instead of 5 turns.
-Added graphical effects to some repair/build interactions.

For translators:
-The "after_release.xml" was modified.

Feel free to send us bug reports via email. http://balconyteam.com/contact/

As always, thank you for your support and have a nice day!

Yours,
Balcony Team
