(more) prompt doesn't work correctly (ASCII)
New lines automatically replace older ones without giving a chance to read them

Previously when the two-line buffer became full, it always required you to press space for more. Now it just skips straight ahead; new lines automatically replace older ones without giving a chance to read them. Some instances such as when entering Terinyo still trigger the prompt.

This may make big fights faster but results in some awkward things like the date effect and standard starting message at the very beginning being immediately replaced by "A road." You have to go to the message buffer to read them. You may miss valuable info this way.

If this is intentional allow us at least to change it back in ADOM.CFG. (Or maybe I just didn't see the option?)

There are also some other small errors such as an N lingering on the screen (until a new message appears) after answering no to a y/n prompt.

I have only tested the DOS version for this. IIRC this was in R61 too. Related interface issue that still persists: http://www.adom.de/forums/project.php?issueid=4061

I can reproduce this. It's been around for some time.

Fixed. The various message display modes introduced a while ago broke this.
