In a losing mortem, the last history entry is often something like:

"On level 17 he finally smitten by a cacodemon"
should be: "he was finally smitten" or even "he finally was smitten" (in case they all say 'finally' but not all deaths need 'was')

or, you could even get rid of 'finally': "On level 17 he was smitten by a cacodemon."

That issue comes up pretty commonly, rchandra. Formers have the same issue - all of them, I think.

(yes, I've managed to be killed by a pistol-carrier. It was embarassing.)

  On level 39 he ran for his life from lava!
  On level 39 he finally rode a mancubi rocket.

(this also appears at the top of the mortem)

You ride a mancubus rocket, the word 'mancubi' is the plural of mancubus.

After you prepare for a full win, it says you sense a 'menance' instead of 'menace'.

Hmm, I think there's a little mistake in the keybindings help screen:

'f' -- Alternative Fire of equipped weapon (if available)
'F' -- Special fire weapon (depending on weapon)


Isn't f the normal fire command?

Wait, has this been reported?

The Doomguy seems to pick up ammo with weird syntax.

"You picked up 50 of shotgun shell."

Shouldn't this (and similar messages) omit the 'of' and make the ammo type plural (unless it's a stack of one?)

In AoPc description: "The monsters are beings too! They don't deserve to be killed! It's all the fault of that damn Cyberdemon, he should be NUKED!"
Not Cybie now, it's Mastermind who should be nuked...

The same in Ao100: "100 levels, and you win. No Cybie, no JC, no special levels, just 100 normal levels."

Heroic Diamond Badge desription: "Received ALL medals".
The only past time, all other descriptions say "receive", "win", etc.

This may have already been reported, and maybe it's intentional, but I think

Outside-of-the-game typo: file version of doomrl.exe (0.9.9.5!) is... still 0.9.9.1. Same for 0.9.9.4 .exe.

The description for Vampyre doesn't state that the kills have to be melee... at least I think that ranged kills don't give you health.

Well here's something that threw me off.

Quote
You guess the Arachnotrons had to come from somewhere. Hi, mom. She doesn't have a plasma gun, so thank heaven for small favors. Instead, she has a super-chaingun.

I at that time had an armor with 90% bullet res. It's only the 2nd time I get to her and I just don't know better. Mastermind does plasma damage(as the wiki says). "She doesn't have a plasma gun", but she has a super-chaingun that deals plasma damage. What the-?!? A plasma shooting super-chaingun?
It's the first time I decided to trust a description and it threw me off.  ...  I still nuked her, posthumously though :D

I vote for a slight retouch of the description.

In general there is no obvious way to tell what kind of damage a particular enemy deals. I think this information should be readily available somehow.

Consistent use of colour could communicate this effectively, say white for bullet, brown for fire, green for acid and blue for energy. Most projectiles follow this already, but not all.
