Longer help texts

Post by szemigi » Thu Oct 10, 2019 11:05 pm

In the registered Keen Dreams, the help menus are longer. This can be achieved in the shareware version as well by patch. (Thanks to myself for searching through in the D.BEH.)

The empty space can be found from

Code: Select all

$16C80 to $18C30
if you want to include more texts for the first and the second help section (Up to you how you spare space for these sections). As for the third section, it starts from $229E0 (this is where the original help section texts start from), but since these aren't used due to moving the offsets, thus you can have free/longer space if you wanna write longer story for your Keen Dreams mod.


But all these depends on what you wanna include in the help, so becareful or the texts will overflow!

Neat, I always thought that space was memory and used for something.

Me, too. But after experimenting with this longer help text thing, there was no crash, error, bug or anything else. Just saying.
