Improvement: This hack allows you to change the font in the game. The old font is very wide and it’s very hard to read. You are forced to constantly scroll through the text. This hack changes the width font from 16×16 to 8×16. Now you do not have to watch the big gaps between the letters. You can use this hack to translate the game to another language or even for an English re-translation.
It doesn’t affect either the intro cutscene, or the location names.

No Real ChangeReviewed By: illuminerdi on 22 Mar 2018
So this hack is a great idea but…it doesn’t actually do anything besides change the text spacing. It does not actually fill the text boxes with more text. IMO that makes it somewhat pointless…
See, the problem is that it doesn’t change where line breaks are located, basically (as you can plainly see in the second screenshot) it just moves the existing text closer together and thus leaves half the text box empty all the time. That’s not just in that one screenshot, it’s always like that. Everywhere.
So the game still has awkward line breaks everywhere and lots of text scrolling because it fits so few actual words in a single textbox. This hack does NOT change the amount of text you need to scroll through.
Unless you REALLY feel that the text is too spaced apart (personally, it doesn’t bother me that much), this does not really effect any change.
It’s a good starting point, but the author might want to consider a second pass at this that alters the actual textbox fill so that half of it is no longer empty all the time.
Version 1.0 Recommended - No
