Hi,
I'm working on an RPG for the Spectrum +2B, but it should be possible to port it to Pentagon and other clones with at least 128K of RAM. I've received a lot of support from the Russian community over the years so I'm keen to release a TR-DOS version in Russian. At this stage I've just got the text for the character creation part. There's rather a lot of it and it has to fit in a small text window of 41x4 characters. I plan to finish coding the character generator this year, but the game itself will take much longer. Please PM me if you are interested.

Typical translation might not work, due to the size of translated text/messages.

I'm assuming the text can expand a bit by being stored on disk rather than in RAM. The program will be two single-load 128K programs on the +2B so that should leave a fair bit of room on a standard TR-DOS disk for compressed text.

Just an update to say that the first beta of the character generator is done and I'm planning multi-lingual support in the second beta.
