Typos
« on: January 14, 2007, 18:07 »

Format is [current|correction].

Sweep Attack skill description -
    ...The attack is less [efective|effective] [then|than] a normal one though. ...

Whirlwind Attack skill description -
    ...The attack is less effective [then|than] a normal one though. ...

(In both of the above cases I also suggest adding a comma before the 'though')

Impale Attack skill description -
    This skill makes you dash one step in a given direction [immidately|immediately] with [a|] greater [strenght|strength].
    It works only if [theres|there's/there is] exactly one free space between you and the enemy. ...

And dexterity currently affects accurancy :)


That should be everything, but it's late (early...) and I'm tired, so meh.

EDIT: affective>effective, thank you Malek

[efective|affective]
Erm... I must disaggree on those... effective (one more "f" than Kornel used) is the proper word to be used... as for affective you suggest is somethinf completly diffrent. Dictionary definitions:

Code: [Select]
effective
adj.
1.
a. Having an intended or expected effect.
b. Producing a strong impression or response; striking: gave an effective performance as Othello.
2. Operative; in effect: The law is effective immediately.
3. Existing in fact; actual: a decline in the effective demand.
4. Prepared for use or action, especially in warfare.
Code: [Select]
affective
adj. Psychology
1. Influenced by or resulting from the emotions.
2. Concerned with or arousing feelings or emotions; emotional

Also, the injury description "Severely wounded" comes up as "Severly wounded".

In addition to "severly wounded" needing to be "severely wounded", "mortaly wounded" needs to be "mortally wounded".

The text "Further levels increase that options effectiveness" needs to have an apostrophe like "option's".

In the Running skill description, I think the word "highly" is a little awkward and should be changed to "greatly":
This skill [highly|greatly] improves the benefits of
Running mode.

I agree that "efective" should be replaced with "effective".

In the Sweep Attack and Whirlwind skill descriptions, "tough" needs to be "though".

To Malek - I looked it up myself now, and I certainly made a mistake. My bad :)
I keep screwing that one up.

I'll edit my original post accordingly.
