I've been given a few suggestions regarding the wording of the dialogues and the scroll. I'm in the process of integrating them, but If you have more, keep them coming!

I'll post a better version soon. And still hopeful for volunteers to help with the graphics.

NOTE TO THE NEWS REPORTERS LURKING AROUND: THIS IS A WORK IN PROGRESS.
I would appreciate very much if you wrote it as such. If you only want to report the finished work, especially has I plan several more test releases over the next week, I will make a new thread in /Games with the final dsk and a nice paragraph explaining the changes. So watch that space.


-----


I've reworded some dialogues based on suggestions I received. Not all of them have been implemented as I'm limited in the number of words I can use.
You can find all the lines of dialogues in this google document:
https://docs.google.com/document/d/1VS1Q5TymS36JLf42WNkapHJs57T81C4IciwGeM9SryM/edit?usp=sharing
WARNING It's super spoilery. If you'd rather discover them in-game, please do so (And I'd love a feedback on that).
If you have suggestions, you can add them on the document, or post them here, or message me. If you edit the document, message me so I can review them and discuss them with you.

I've corrected a few typos in the scrolls. I'm not super satisfied on the words placements, and in my opinion the space between words is a couple pixels too wide. I would like to experiment with the space width, but I can't find where it's defined in the code. If someone has an idea?

In the mean time, enjoy this.

I wonder if we could fit a CPCWiki logo in there somewhere, like we did with the awesome Zynaps CPCWiki version?

The byte at &6754 in bank &C0 controls the space width (it's &0A by default). I think setting it to &08 works well.

Thanks! yep, I couldn't have found it myself. 08 is a good value indeed, that or maybe 07. I'm checking what it means for the word wrap and hyphenation of both texts, but it's already much more pleasant to read.



I'm considering changing some glyphs slightly, specifically the last pixel that indicates their width. Some letters are close together, while others have a one pixel space before the next one. And it seems random. Will experiment.

I also changed NONE to NONES because I don't know why I thought it was written without an S. It's spelled with one everywhere in the book.

both these change (and probably more) will be in the next update.
