Postby Stickman on Tue Aug 02, 2011 2:20 am

I didn't see a thread for these yet. If anyone has suggestions for a better thread format, I'll try to edit this OP.

[Problem Type]
Error, Grammar

[Location]
Thief Den (LV0) mouseover text

[Current Text]
"... developed into a state-sanction craphole ..."

Should read "state-sanctioned"

Probably a good idea, note that the game text is written for UK english, not US ;)

Good to note. I believe my correction still holds, but you folks from the right side of the pond can tell us what's what when we're wrong! :D

I was only able to play for a couple of hours tonight (and this is a fantastic step forward from the alpha!), but I have a few more text/UI related things to report:

-at the very beginning the tip to the right says to "click on the dungeon button..." and there's no dungeon button visible.

-"Wanderers" and "Vagabonds" shouldn't be capitalized.

-picture/icon of a ladder, but the text says "stairs"...seems odd/wrong.

-"Outpost" changed to "Guild(LV0)", but was still referred to as "your outpost" in tutorial text.

-detail text on items is tough to read when not full-screened (e.g. "6 deals 12 damage" on BURNDAYRAZ)
Making games is like making hotdogs - its messy, scary, and not at all like enjoying the end product. -Sigma-X

Location: Guild Memo #3:
Currently: "...drag items to the (?) to convert them."
Suggestion: change (?) to the conversion symbol

Location: Explorer's Guild. Starter Pack. In level "Positioning". After swapping with the zombie.
Currently: "...convert it by dragging its icon to the convert (?) button"
Suggestion: change (?) to the conversion symbol

Location: WEYWUT rune descriptive text
Currently: "...affects Blink, Retreat..."
Suggestion: (I'm not 100% sure here) Retreat should actually be "Cowardly".

The description for Tower Shield starts of with "Ihis shield has never been anywhere near a tower" instead of "This...".

Guess its the best place to post it.
Enemy called: "Plant" is obviously made to look like Flytrap, so why not call it "Flytrap" or "Dionaea"... "plant" is just so plain :)
