Nothing is lost in asking, but don't get your hopes up, especially not for anything really big.

Mod to increase character limitation in goal texts.

In GA, you can add a goal text to your adventure. Over a hundred and fifty of my adventures use goal texts frequently to explain a lot of the lore going on, but it's often very difficult to do this and combine it with other interesting sequences within the adventure, leading to me making another act with more goal texts. My recent adventures are struggling with this.

I would be sincerely grateful to anybody that could finally remove that limiter. As an added bonus, also the win/loss and introduction character limitations too.

I think I recall a discussion on this over on Discord, where it was determined that increasing the limit is impossible as the current limit has something to do with how the data is managed? I don't know how to explain it exactly. I'm hoping someone else here knows what I'm talking about!

Yeah, somebody told me it might be an engine limit, something along the line of 3*64 and each text box has 192 characters.
