Hi :)
I am doing an RPG that may be my last game ๐Ÿ˜” because I donโ€™t have a lot of time to code now.
Ok so I was doing an RPG but there was too much dialogs... It would be cool to use a disk, to store lot of text, then to get it easily with a sub.
It would economise a lot of tokens !!!
What do you think ๐Ÿค” ??

The recommended way to store a lot of text in a program is using the "DATA" and "READ" commands.

IF you have tons of text data to store, you could do it manually... if you have say hundreds of lines of text to store... (other wise, Timo's recommendation is best)

I have a tool that might be usefull... if interested i can help you get set up... Take a look...

One advantage would be that players could not easily take a sneak peak at the text... the disadvantage is that it can be combersome to edit and use,...
