    Playing the Enhanced Client lets you make book titles longer than in the Classic Client, same thing with bulletin boards and pet names. Other than that, not sure how else a book name could be made longer.

    Use the EC. Most of its text inputs are significantly longer.

    I wish they would fix it, so books works same way in both clients. You may be able to put more text in books in EC but you can't read it in CC.

    this is minor compared to other things ec can do and cc cant. ec in many ways is so much better. I warned devs about making it unfair, dont need more peeps to leave. ive asked about getting some real love to cc . no comment

    The reason they keep trying to make a new workable client has always been the limitations of working on the classic client. Face it the thing is WAY out of date and the code strings for it so long that any "tweaking" they do to it often borks it worse than it improves it. Hence the reason why the EC was born.

    I think people love the CC cause of the way it looks. Why that graphic can't have the EC code under it is beyond me. The new 3D look they wanted failed but the code was much better. I've known of old text games that had graphic painted over them. Worked great. Seems they could do that with the CC.
