However, some elements have been kept in graphics to represent continuity. The titles of generic bulletins, for example, have been retained. Similarly, some chords of music have been retained.

In order to make it more appealing, the fonts have been made bolder. Contrast has been introduced, both on bands and scroll, for greater readability.

Text bands firing simultaneously have been reduced to a maximum of three so as to remove clutter in the lower part of the screen. In most situations, there are likely to be only two bands. A new, top band has been introduced, which will be used occasionally as story title or for other similar purposes.
