Text errors

Post by ThvN » Tue May 14, 2013 8:37 pm

I'll post up some typos and text errors I found, feel free to add any you come across. I'm not a native English speaker so any help is welcome.

One thing I'm not sure about, a lot of the scenario descriptions (if you select a seperate scenario to play you'll see this text in the menu) are grammatically OK but come across a bit 'wooden', they lack flow. So I've substituted some ideas of my own, but as these are stylistical issues they are not very important, if the scenario designer(s) only want real errors reported, that's fine, just let me know.

Advance to Elbe

AdvancetoElbeB_triumph.pzbrf + AdvancetoElbeC_victory.pzbrf
“ A long road it’s been,”

IDS_SCEN_NAME

IDS_SCEN_DESCRIPTION
“Western Allies are cutting through Germany heading to meet Soviets at Elbe.”
Western Allies cut through Germany to meet the Soviets at the Elbe River.

IDS_SCEN_ALLIED_CAM_OBJECTIVES

For Sicily briefing:

I would put a paragraph starting at " The Americans will land on the Left in the Gela area in support."

I was confused by this statement in Beta 1. It implies you will get auxiliary forces on the map that will help you in your invasion.

If we already posted text errors in the previous Beta(s) do you still want us to report the same text errors found in Beta 3?

Example: Market Garden

1) "...Market Garden is a plan (is) to speed up our advance...."
remove (is)

2) "...relieve the airborne from (to) bridge-to-bridge...."
remove (to) and add hyphens (-)

3) "...If successful(,) this operation...."
insert (,) for pause.

Glad to see that the Axis air has been downgraded a bit for beta 3; the bf-109 was especially difficult notwithstanding my 3 very experienced (300 plus ) fighters. Re: victory conditions, maybe it is only me, but I find the phrase "prevent the axis army from exiting" to be a bit too general. Does it mean that one escaping unit ruins my Triumph ? Whatever the answer, the player should know it at the outset of the scenario and be able to act according .


Perhaps " prevent any axis army unit from exiting" as if, only one unit escapes, you loose the Triumph.

OK, everything I post from here is for beta3.

As mentioned above, in the Campaign selection screen, the tutorial's description contains the word 'stricke'. Should be 'strike' of course.

Border Raids

IDS_SCEN_AXIS_CAM_OBJECTIVES + IDS_SCEN_AXIS_SCN_OBJECTIVES
"More than 6 trucks needs to survive."
need

A small observation:

IDS_SCEN_ALLIED_CAM_OBJECTIVES
Kill all 9 trucks from Supply Convoy. Kill at least 3 trucks from Supply Convoy.
IDS_SCEN_ALLIED_SCN_OBJECTIVES
Kill at least 3 trucks from Supply Convoy.

It would be better to replace 'kill' with 'destroy', but it's not technically wrong.

Crete

Not strictly wrong, but:

IDS_STRING22 Herakleion = Heraklion

IDS_STRING23 Rhethymnon = Rethymnon

Both are very old spellings, which would have been used in WW2 (I've checked the maps for Creforce), but I used the more modern spellings.

Crusader

As Ballacraine mentioned, the correct name for the special truck units is the Royal Army Service Corps (RASC), they are mentioned in the briefing and the pzloc file:

IDS_SCEN_ALLIED_CAM_OBJECTIVES
"Capture and hold 5 objectives and escort 3 units from Service Corps to marked area A."
Capture and hold 5 objectives and escort 3 units from the Royal Army Service Corps to the area marked A.
