    Hi folks,

    I'm having a little problem here...I want to put a txt file containing a walkthrough of Dragon Quest VIII to read on my DS using the Moonshell.

    The file I'm using is the one writed by Alex and hosted on the gamefaqs.com site.

    The problem is, when I run the file on the Moonshell the text do not fit the screen, and the result is a mess.

    I think that te problem is the length of the lines...but I don't know how to fix this.

    Could anyone help me?

    I really need this, because I don't have a computer in my room to read the walkthrough.

    Thanks. :)

    Try using notepad and Edit > Replace... to replace all line breaks with spaces.

    Yep, exactly that. It's 15 mins or so in a txt editor I'm afraid, especially to handle all that ASCII art they stick at the top, hypen dividers, etc [​IMG]

    I'll try using the edit>replace like you said...

    And those art they put on the hole document...will I have to delete them?

    Thanks a lot guys!!!

    I was using the GBA bookreader so it might be different on the DS programs, but on that the narrow screen the word wrap meant that most ASCII images and diagrams were too wide to fit on the screen and suffered some mangling in the hands of word wrap. Just try it out and see what they look like, but it wouldn't surprise me if they don't work too well.
