Thanks, guys. I had searched those folders before, but went back again, and finally found them. The text I was looking for was found in a couple of different files: string_table_ui.xml and string_table_general.xml. I changed them and it worked great. The only question I have now on this is, where do I have to go to find the scripts that alter the actual color of this text in-game, because the content of the text strings is all that seems to be controlled by these files. So that's what I'm trying to figure out now.

Colors can be used in the 'ui', 'xml' and 'gamedata\script' files.
Notepad++ and WinMerge are great tools to use.

Locating/Editing in-game feedback text in SoC

Hey, everyone. I want to find and change some of the text messages that are displayed on screen in response to various in-game events, such as "Press F to open door" or "Game Over". For the life of me, I can't figure out where this kind of text information is stored. Any clue on this would be greatly appreciated.

The 'ui_*' files in the 'ui' folder, and the 'ui_* files in the 'text' folder.
