Default Customized Scrolling Screens

How do I change the text in all the scrolling screens in Oddysee? I want to use Paul's dll and change it to European Speedrunner Assembly 2016 RAISING MONEY TO HELP SAVE THE CHILDREN. Twitch.tv/esamarathon.

How do I do it?

I do not know how to do it with Paul's DLL but if you download a Hex Editor you can directly edit the exe file.
You need to open AbeWin.exe in the Hex Editor then Ctrl+F and search for a word that you know to be in the screen's text (e.g. 'deactivate' or 'press') that you want to change.
You will come across the phrase which you can then edit.

Also, so you don't corrupt the file:

01 = (Up Arrow) | 02 = (Down Arrow) | 03 = (Left Arrow) | 04 = (Right Arrow) | 05 = Shift | 06 = Ctrl | 07 = Alt | 08 = Z | 09 = Space | 10 = 6 | 11 = 7 | 12 = 8 | 13 = 0 | 14 = Esc | 15 = X | 16 = Esc | 17 = Tab |

When you view the hex ASCII it will show up as a .
Sorry to go a bit off topic but I think that this will help some beginners a bit in this topic.
This way is a little tedious but unless someone explains how to use the DLL to do it, this will be the best option.

I managed to find the line where Paull adds the custom text in the DLL using the hex editor, but changing the text corrupts the DLL.
