Unused Text

At 125564 in the executable is a message to add the main string.

Place the main String in here. It could be quite long so make sure it wraps over lines etc and does not encroach on buttons... 

Throughout the executable are a few interesting error messages.

The save game file has become too large. Increase it's size
Sorry, the savefile you are trying to load was saved out with an older version of Tycoon
Ooops. Trying to Load some unheard of chunk type. I don't believe you wanted to do that!!!
Failed to create Software renderer. Ugh!!
Unknown exception occurred. Something has gone terribly wrong. Attempting to crash gracefully. Hopefully, a file called __crash.sav will have been saved.
Tycoon Building Editor - Not letting you save!
Building properties have changed since last save - use 'Save As' instead because the code at the beginning of the filename should be different...
Globals go here...
Ooops. We've hit a new texture slot, thats already used..... ARSE
