TEXT assets contain text that is used ingame in message boxes and other places.

Format

Offset Type Description
0x00 int Character count
0x04 char[charCount] Text (zero-terminated; the terminator is not included in charCount)
charCount + 0x04 byte[] Padding (0x00 until the data is aligned to 0x04)

Text Formatting

The text can be formatted by introducing tags. The tags are usually in the format:

{variable:value}
{variable=value}
{variable}

They usually either affect the text coming immediately after it, or insert something in the text (such as an image or variable).

Tag List (incomplete)

The tags placed in [brackets] are optional.
