• Changing text string 621 - New scan message areas

    From nolageek@VERT/CAPSHRIL to All on Wed May 19 12:06:40 2021
    I'm trying to change the text for text.dat string 621, the one that's used to ask if you'd like to search the current Group, Sub-board, or All - and when I use string.replace_text it doesn't change the output. 622 (and about a hundred other ones I have) are working fine, but not 621. I'm pressing N from the message menu which calls the following:

    bbs.scan_subs(SCAN_NEW);

    Do you have SCFG->System->Loadable Modules->Scan Subs set to something? If so, that something is what's displaying that prompt. Otherwise, I'd expect the text.dat string replacment to take effect.

    I do indeed - DDScanSubs. Looking through DDMessageReader I see where Nightfox has specfied the text strings there instead of using them from text.dat
