E-Mails

The ingame E-Mail is part of the campaign/mission system in XWA.

It is controlled by a simple text file email.txt which is located in the XWA\Missions\ directory and lists every single e-mail, its sender and the mission after which it is received.

E-Mai entries are compiled in a series of variables:

1: #                 mission number after which email shows up
                     0 will make the email appear right at the beginning
2: !EMAIL_#_FROM!:   From, # is the email number
3: !EMAIL_#_HEADER!: Header, # is the email number
4: !EMAIL_#_MSGX!:   email message, # is the email number
                     emails can have mutiple lines
                     each line initialized separately with X being the line number
7: *                 Constant
