Documenting some comment's from IRC so they are not forgotten: (I hope Alberth and variable don't mind - the logs are anyway publicly available)
<variable> Zuu: am I in the wrong place - I don't see instructions on the thread linked above
<Alberth> Zuu: lots of newspaper pop-ups
<variable> also is there a way to get the year to be displayed somewhere on the screen?
<Zuu> variable: The year is displayed at the bottom left.
<Zuu> Wait for months to trun to january-ish.
<Zuu> variable: The instructions are in the content download dialog, if you select TutorialAI. Apparently not in the thread however.
<variable> Ah, I see
<planetmaker> and probably using the wrong line endings
<Zuu> Alberth: When fast-forwarding on a big map with all messages on?
<Alberth> Zuu: I am missing the invitation to move the display to TOWNA
<variable> Zuu: haha very hacky. "to click a button, delete it
<Zuu> variable: Unfortutately, that's not much one can do right now about that as AIs can't create GUIs.So it is just a big hack yes
<Alberth> Zuu: 256x256, that is, completely default settings (I am using a new branch where I did not do any configuration)
<variable> Zuu: do you poll to see when the button is 'clicked' or is there a notification
<Alberth> stuff like end-of-year finances
<Zuu> Alberth: The basics chapter could grow into infinity about turing off news, end-of-year finanses and other disturbances.
<Zuu> But your comments are valid, it's far form perfect and there is large room for improvements to a good user experience
<Alberth> indeed, mainly just mentioning things so you know about it
<Alberth> you could make a save game
<Zuu> But isn't news a gui setting?
<Alberth> oh, that could be the case
<Zuu> Otherwise a scenario could be used, but as a scenario can't depend on an AI in bananas, the user instructions become even longer to get started.
<Alberth> ah, now I understand why you need the sign list
<Alberth> perhaps mention at which town you start building?
<Alberth> do you check whether I started the bus?
<Alberth> and perhaps at the end mention things the user can do now (eg extend the bus service)?
<Alberth> add a 2nd bus would be another option
In response to Alberths suggestion about mentioning the town name: I've only briefly looked into this, but I'm not really sure if the code I've written that breaks messages into lines will work on multi-byte characters, something that will need to be handled in order to print town names on signs. As far as I remember, the hard-limit of 31 characters is actually 31 bytes and not really characters in the case of multi-byte characters. But I have not made enough investigations in the source code to make a solid work in this area and has therefore decided to not take any risks here.
