I think i will drop the blue links for now, and to start with, I won't use morrowind fonts. But i've made some progress, and I think I know how I will format text.

But I've a question: what is the texture for book pages? I mean, when you open the journal (or a book), it's just a background texture + some text (i guess), but I couldn't find the right background texture. It's not that important, as I can still display text, but for the moment it looks very ugly^^

Ps: sorry I'm rather slow, but I've some exams. Should be finished next week ;)

There was some discussion about background textures in the thread about the book and scroll interface. These might be related. That's really all I know about this topic.

How is the journal GUI going? We haven't seen any code for it yet.

Right now, I'm stuck because I don't know how to place the journal image in the right place on the screen (basically in the center). But now that I think of it, for this, the only thing needed is to modify an XML file. So if there is any non coder voluntary to help, I could focus on the codding aspect.

I've not commited my work on GitHub because it's still messy.

Well, code in the repository is allowed to be messy. As long as you clean up afterwards. But it is ultimately your decision. If you are more comfortable with keeping the code to your self a bit longer, that is okay.

What about creating a container, place it in center (look at other gui functions) and set the background image?

I don't know what you exactly means by a container, but I think you described the general idea of what i'm trying to do.

Zini: how do I add a new resource file in openmw?
