...but the fonts are being copied into RAM

Here is the "S/Startup-Sequence":



The reason why the font in-game is sooooo large is that it's coded to use "eurostile" and it's "26".

I can get fonts in-game smaller but I have to say replace "eurostile - 26" with another font say "8" in size, but then rename as "26" so that it works in-game:

Note also that if you are using MCP or another Workbench enhancer that
changes the system fonts, you will need to diable this before you start
the game otherwise the in-game fonts will appear incorrect.

All posts moved out of the HOL data problems --> Relics of Deldroneye - Rename thread.

Also, the large font is how the game is intended. This is why the use of "eurostile 26" is coded into the main game file:



I might change this to use "Ruby 8" though like the first and second games in the series:



Note that this also changes the font / font size used in the first part of the intro though.

Thank you DamienD for bringing this trilogy to my mind, I am going to start playing it

Also Relics2 is missing on Lemon too, I will add it after it is added to HOL.
