Revision as of 00:53, 6 July 2006

This is the format for combat menus, such as spell lists, ability lists, item lists, etc. The format is loaded into RAM and then updated as necessary (specifically, arguments to determine names for selections). It's run once for each line. Note that these only set up *graphics*. No gameplay is affected by these formats.
