Summary0003292: Wrong objective level names in end mission screen
DescriptionIf you change the names of the difficulty levels then the default names still show up in the end mission statistics screen.
Steps To ReproduceCreate a map and add the spawnarg(s) difficultyXname, where X=0,1,2 to any worldspawn. Add some names there. These names will show up correctly in the difficulty selection screen at the beginning of the mission, but not in the statistics screen in the end.

You can test this out in the example map.
TagsNo tags attached.

In game/DifficultyManager there is a function idStr GetDifficultyName(int level) defined. I guess this one should be executed in the end-mission screen to get the actual name of the difficulty level (didn't find that part in the code).

By the time the Mission Statistics screen asks for the difficulty level name, the map has been shut down and that information is gone. So, with no specific map-defined difficulty names available ("Taffer", etc.), the default names are displayed ("Easy", etc.).

The map-defined difficulty names have to be copied to the statistics area before map shutdown, so they can be retrieved from there and displayed on the Statistics screen.

Save a copy of the level names in the statistics data, which is still available when painting the statistics screen. The main copy of the level names is wiped when the map ends, which happens before the statistics screen is painted.
