I'd like to modify the text for the IMP quiz, but can't seem to find the text anywhere in _EnglishText.c. Where should I look?

see ja2/build/laptop/ IMP_Text_System.c and IMP_Personality_Quiz.c

(the actual text isn't there, but that is the code which handles the quiz..)

looks like the text is hidden in some sort of encrypted file...

however, what you could do is change the file to use one of the regular strings instead, and write your own set of questions.

While we're at it, let's add some more questions, and have some more awards and abilities to the quiz. I've played the game so much I know what to answer to what to get an ability.

Some possibilites of new awards:
- weapons & equipment
- ability score/skill bonuses
- more special abilities (like stealth, HtH and others)
- starting money

I think there's some neat potential here, and it wouldn't be too hard to add this into the game. Anyone who's looked this over have any opinions?

quite possible, shouldn't be too difficult. something i'd like myself would be that instead of getting 2 skills at level 1, you'd get only 1, and then be able to actually choose a new skill at, say, level 6, or perhaps 2 more at levels 5 and 9. just an idea

The IMP Quiz-Text is stored in the BinaryData.SLF in the Data-folder of your Ja2-Installation. You don't have to search through the code Wink . It is called IMPTEXT.EDT and can be edited with the EDT-Editor, which you can get from the Galaxy Smile .

Adding new abilities to the IMP Quiz isn't very difficult, just look at the following file:

Ja2/Build/Laptop/IMP Personality Quiz.c at line 1008. There starts the quiz, the code is well commentated, so I don't think that there'll be many problems. But I don't know if it is possible to change the starting money with this...
