Hi I hope this hasnt been already asked
I'm making a text-based rpg and I'm trying to understand wich is the best way to store a very large amount of text paragraphs into external files, in order to share them to writers/translator etc, just like the dialog.tlk file of bioware games, which contains ALL the text data of the game.
I'd also need the archive to feature some group-like and paragraph numeration, the in the ini files would be ok but I wonder what's the memory limit of it. ( I just cheked = INI files are limited to 64 Kb and each item text cannot exceed 1024 characters. )
arrays would be also great (I've made an editor to write/edit/save the dialogue paragraphs which is just fine)
but I wonder also stability and memory issues, plus any way to import-export array text into a txt/rtf file for backup and additional editing purposes.
thank you in advice
