    Error Screens in Wolf3D Empty Error Screens in Wolf3D

    I just checked the error screen of some version of wolf3d and I don't understand one thing.
    In the editor I see this error message screen:
    Error Screens in Wolf3D OpO8SeM


    but whatever errors I get, I just get this part of the screen after the crash:
    Error Screens in Wolf3D Kot43cb

    Why does it cut the other half of the screen, is the other half can appear somehow?

    And if I know right there's a different error screen in another version, I don't have in mind how it looks right now or does it have any problems like this one.

    If anyone is trying to pick on the different colors... Wolf3D message screens works with true EGA colors while the colors chaosedit is using for these screens are different.

    Nice discovery. I guess it's like the fontchunk and TILE8/16 chunks where they just grab pieces of it for what they need lol!

    Not sure if you knew already or not but you can switch the EGA background from blink on/off to bright on/off in DOS by resetting the video interrupt like this:

    Code:
            mov ax,$1003 { disable Blink }
            xor bl,bl
            int $10
    https://sourceforge.net/p/dosbox/bugs/357/

    Think that Blinkoff.rar example will turn the background to bright instead of blink after you run it too.
