'DrawText' only showing certain amount of characters

I was modifying mraes’ heli script to show street name, direction and speed but it seems to cut off certain characters when there’s a long street name. Any help?

Short/single street name

Long/cross street name


(doesn’t show speed, sometimes it just shows ‘Spe’ or something)

STRING has a max char count

Instead of

SetTextEntry("STRING")
AddTextComponentString...

Try using

-- this code somewhere at start of resource (only call once)
AddTextEntry("vehicleinfo", "Model: ~a~\nPlate: ~a~")

-- this code at RenderVehicleInfo(vehicle)
SetTextEntry("vehicleinfo")
AddTextComponentString(vehname)
AddTextComponentString(licenseplate)
DrawText(0.45, 0.9)
