DoomRL typos
« on: November 01, 2010, 14:34 »

Tavana edit: CORRECTED typos will be listed below. If a typo is on this list then it has been corrected in the repository.

Code: (Corrected Typos) [Select]
All being descriptions should now be typo free.
All instances of "an" instead of "a" for grammar (with monsters).

Malek edit: Merged topic. Use this to report future DoomRL related typos.

I believe you have a typo in the description of the pinky demon. It says though but i think it should say tough.

Yes they do.

It's nice to know that there's another stickler for detail to give DoomRL more polish.

I'm tempted to give him an evercookie (don't try to access the site that google returns if you know what is good for you), but I'm not that evil yet.

Found another mistake in the description.
it says "Big, flying, red, horned heads. They spit with huge explosive plasma balls.

The "with" makes no sense here, unless they travel together with a plasma balls at their side and both of them spit together, or they spit at you sulliva and at the same time plasma balls than it would make a little sense, but i dont think it is the case.

FYI, there are more than a few typos in the game, splashed here and there. Making a new topic for each and every one is a little much, how about we combine all of them into one large typo thread? The OP can keep track and add them all into a single post.

A few more to worry about:

- Highscores: Angel of Purity reads as AoP, should read as AoPu to differentiate between AoPc (as per AoMr/AoMs/AoMC subclasses)
- Highscores: "killed by a [enemy]" sometimes needs to be "kill by an [enemy]" for enemies like Arch-viles and Arachnotrons
- Player Info (Medals): A lot of words ending in "ing" should be replaced by their past-tense counterparts. This includes:
--- Completing -> Completed
--- Finishing -> Finished
--- Finding -> Found
--- Pulling -> Pulled
--- Visiting -> Visited
--- Present tense also works -- Might have missed a few of the hidden ones, but the mainstream ones are corrected.
- Player Info (Badges): Sometimes UV is spelled "Ultra-violence" and other times spelled "Ultra-Violence": best to pick one
- Player Info (Badges): Longinus Diamond badge is cut off: "Complete Unholy Cathedral on N! without Brut", could change "without" to "w/o" or remove "Complete" (as per the angel badges) -- changed to "Complete UC on Nightmare! without Brute"


There are likely more in the help section, but I need to finish up some impending HW first.

EDIT: Items marks in green are corrected. -Tavana

 Thank you

I've hijacked the first post on the thread to list typos that I've corrected. Quite a few of these I've already fixed, just not writted down yet. Please keep them coming! =)
