I applaud the work you're doing. I'm sure many people appreciate your efforts. (Or will do)

Have you checked the German 3map_texts.amb to see if there is either another text block or 10 declared? The last part is a guess?

Mistake probably. Correctable yes. Cause a fatal error? The text parser could skip these extra bytes while looking for the next 20,00,20?

This is not about 3Map_texts.amb is it ?

Perhaps because they are never used? Or they are subtly different?

Pretty sure I did.

To prove this is real we'll try and do what you asked. Find a specific txt block which should cause a crash, I'll use the netsrak cheat to get to that point in very fast time and we'll test them.
