Text Patches: Cheats, Items, Status Screen and More

Post by Mink »

Here are some miscellaneous text patches that deal with cheats, items, the status screen, the question that you have to answer in order to play the game, the text displayed when you don't make it past a level and the menu that might be useful. I don't think these have already been posted; I didn't find them when I did a search, and they're not at the patch index.

Here they are:

Code: Select all
