I really have trouble understanding the reason for this field, but I bet that this is what causes problems with fansubs.
- 2 bytes that index the room where the cue is spoken
- 2 bytes that are some kind of index for the "interaction" where the cue is spoken (e.g. same value if guybrush interacts with the same object, same value throughout one conversation)
- 2 bytes that somehow index the cue within the conversation or the room -I am not sure.
- 2 bytes that incementally index a "subcue" (if any) within a single cue. Subcues are seperated by the escape sequence \255\003 in the original text. (value 00 for the first subcue, 01 for the second etc.)
- 2 bytes: that have the value 01 if the line is spoken by Guybrush, and 00 else.
- 2 bytes: of unknown purpose. They almost always seem to be 00, but there are cases where they have other value.
Do you think you could write some editor, which gives chance to add new language/change other?
