From bug list:

The following typos were fixed:

Polemarms - It says 'Affinity for polemarms' in the initial selection screen for talents.

Sacrificing an animated tree - *MORTAL, I AM NOT BUILDING A BLOODY GARDEN UP HERE! NO MORE TREES! }*

Adequataly - It says 'and adequataly connected to the flow of mana' in the monster memory for a displacer beast.

To you - The game asks: 'What type of scroll to you wish to create?'

With missing - A weather report: 'The sky is filled blazing stars.'

Is fills - Another weather report: 'This moon-lit night is fills with oppressive heat.'

On/in - When entering the Old Barbarian's clearing, the message that appears is 'You immediately feel at peace on this beautiful clearing.'

Skeletal king (monster memory) - Both instances of "It's" should be "Its,". Also, the fifth sentence seems as if it should begin "Skeletal kings" instead of "Skeletal Kings,".

Greater white unicorn - Missing 'to' in its speech: 'Once I will be able all corruption that has been inflicted upon you.'

Absolutly - It says 'You feel absolutly mad!' after eating a greater claw bug corpse.

Two weapon - One message is: 'Weight of the two weapon'.

Water orb - The message when putting the orb is 'Suddenly the humidity dispenses and everything is normal once more.' - it should be 'disperses'.

Tamborine - It should be Tambourine(s).

'The the djinni is gone.' - There is a 'the' too much in the message displayed when a djinni disappears.

Homunculus (monster memory) - It says: 'They are able to make you fall asleep by touch you.' It should be '[...] asleep by touching [...]'.

If a female character achieves an OCG or UCG ending, the final log file says "She was a Chaos Goddes."
Under certain circumstances, the "(after saving his/her world)" or "(after winning)" after the character's death reason shows up twice. I've seen this in some Hall of Fame logs and once in a more closer character death :)
In the log for UCG endings, it says "Bathed in the radiance of Law and Goodness He/She enters your home plane and challenges you to a battle." The he/she is capitalized. This may be intentional?
"Something unsuccesfully tries to zip out of the hive!"
"Suddenly a storm seems to disturb the trees. With gnarly cries they advance on somthing, obviously prepared to tear it into tiny bits!"
"An energy bolt strikes down on the greater moloch! The greater moloch shruggs it off and laughs with malicious glee!"
"You are mildlly annoyed by the destruction of -foo-."
Attempting to kick yourself: "You wouldn't want do that, would you?" "To" is missing.
In the question system: "will you... accidently knock the pedestal over, hoping to get at least a lucky glance at something interesting?", "Your master believes that you are still too young to be succesful as a warrior and wants you to wait for a couple of years before you resume your combat training."
"The marble statue is labelled with a plaque."
"Accidently you set off a trap!"
"You are not knowledgable enough to examine the -foo-."
"-god1- and -god2- seem to be quarreling for supremacy! -god2- triumphes!"
"A cool breeze starts complementing the night making yxou shudder."

All fixed except:

- A lone hydra, Game asks whether you want to evade [...] them. (needs code changes)
- Howl/growl, it says: 'The silver wolf howls: "Grrrr!"'
- Under certain circumstances, the "(after saving his/her world)" or "(after winning)" after the character's death reason shows up twice. I've seen this in some Hall of Fame logs and once in a more closer character death :)

Greater white unicorn - Missing 'to' in its speech: 'Once I will be able all corruption that has been inflicted upon you.'
Note that it's not only the "to" that's missing ;-)

It should probably be "Once I will be able to remove all corruption that has been inflicted upon you."

Here's another bunch of typos or other text errors. Some of them are from RFEs or Usenet, so credits go to those who found those :)

Lighting an everburning torch while blind: "The uncursed everburning torch [+1, +0] lights itself.", "The uncursed everburning torch [+1, +0] is already giving light." A blind PC has no way of knowing that.
Torches give off heat in addition to light.

Being killed by a ghost will result in the "was aged to death by a -ghost-" death message even if I was only killed in melee, not aged.
Most undead have unique messages when they kill the PC in melee (eg. turned into a vampire). Dying of old age generates a different message, regardless of the source of aging.

Then the message should be edited for blind PCs.

Fair point, but I felt ghosts' special attacks shouldn't be referred to when the death cause was a simple melee hit.

Didn't the "was transformed into a vampire" death message appear only when they drained Toughness and the corresponding HP reduction took you below 1? And that makes me remember a very old death where one of my (male) ID-diving PCs was "transformed into a female vampire".

Thanks for all the bug messages, but we should try to keep things separate. This makes it easier for me to check which problems are already fixed.
Therefore I've created additional bugs for the problems that are still in the TODO list:

- Truncated texts in the talents screen: http://www.adom.de/forums/project.php?issueid=741
- Truncated messages when items are unequipped: http://www.adom.de/forums/project.php?issueid=742
- Illogical messages: http://www.adom.de/forums/project.php?issueid=743

Additionally fixed (not listed above):

"is hit by the the acidic glob" (the)
"has been the source of great craftmanship" (craftsmanship)
"Originaally it wuz built for all da alignmens" (Originally, alignments) This is intentional, I've asked Thomas
There are many instances of "You now are/can..." when the player gains class powers that should be "You are/can now..."

Using the 'l'ook or \Cl commands to check a square you're adjacent to, with a single item on it: "A -foo- (weight: XXs) is lying here." - It should only say "here" if you look at the square you're standing on, and "there" for others.

Well, a person's sanity is inversely proportional to the amount of exclamation marks they use. I'd consider it a feature.

02-23-2012 04:57 PM
Ancient Member
I can agree on that it's a moot point, but I feel at least one of those should be changed to a single mark - "You shatter the stone with your mighty kick!!!". This is a message the game displays to the player (Monks kicking walls with their undocumented power, I think) and it looks somewhat unprofessional to use excessive exclamations.

I'll ask Thomas about the exclamation marks, for now I'll leave them unchanged (except the "mighty kick!!!" one).

Still open:

There are many instances where the American and British English spellings are used interchangeably (gray/grey, Sceptre of Chaos vs. Scepter of Chaos, color/colour, etc.) JT: I've already fixed the "grey" and "colour" ones.

The male invisible stalker's description uses two periods instead of three in ellipses.

Nice. I'm scanning all the strings in the executable to find specific further UK spellings (e.g. armour) which should also be fixed.
