Issue description
Item 383 imported from sourceforge.net tracker on 2013-01-28 18:18:28

The introduction text (story) that is presented after starting a new campaign is scrolling too fast. I could not read all of it before it scrolled out of view.

The text should not disappear at all. Let it stand there until the player clicks the mouse button.

(Yes, people are actually reading it ;-)

Agreed as well.

I did some testing and found slowing it down by about a factor of 3 was about right. This change was comitted in trunk revision 4580 which I believe should fix this bug.

Of course, the plan in the long term is to replace the scrolling text with something fancier, but in the meantime it will have to suffice.
