Scriptdev2 Revision 695 introduces a new format for using texts in EventAI and SD2 Scripts.
This information relates to the *_texts tables located in the ScriptDev Database.
Any script can at any time access and use text from any of the three text tables, as long as the entry does in fact exist.
Custom scripters are adviced to store their text data in custom_texts.
The different tables has ranges of entries allowed for that table.
Reserved EventAI in Mangos entry -1 -> -999999
script_texts: entry -1000000 -> -1999999
custom_texts: entry -2000000 -> -2999999
Any entry out of range for that table will display a startup error.
=========================================
Basic Structure of script_texts and custom_texts
