You mean something like the "how to use materia" tutorial and stuff?

Have you checked at the calling script in Makou Reactor? I doubt the texts are there, though. They're probably in the menu module's data files.

They are, in fact, in flevel.  touphScript can edit the 3 that exist already, which includes window XY placement data and so on. Makou can create new ones.  In fact, once Makou has created new ones, tS can probably edit those too. They have the "tut.txt" extension in tS.

See the correct maps in Makou - like mds7pb1 - then tools > Tutorials / Sounds.

The menu module simply uses the data here to create the dialogue windows and initiate the options. The dialogue windows in the menu are autosized, unlike field.  But they can only support single lines.

As far as I am aware, Luksy was the first to document and reverse the data.

No, you need to replay them in the game to see how it will look.

Ah i see...  Well, the answer is no.  They aren't the same as ordinary dialogue or field text.

Shame, if i could auto text them i could have it play a music track that i time  to match it. But i can't see there being a way to do that either

Not sure what Ficedula can do, but you never know.  I'm not sure what his method is - so maybe he can.

Make a video of it with a voiceover. Use an unused video or use 7th heaven to replace one temporary.
