Title: Are These Typos Worth Reporting?
Post by: Asrial on May 28, 2004, 09:49:30 am
Are these typos that can be fixed or not?

http://home.sprynet.com/~asrial/temp/sc2bug1.jpg and http://home.sprynet.com/~asrial/temp/sc2bug2.jpg

The issue is with the text (a space where there shouldn't be and missing the rest of a sentence).

Your question is more than a bit disingenuous, since you just reported them. :P

In the future, you may want to report your bugs using the Bugzilla Database (http://uqm.stack.nl/cgi-bin/bugs/index.cgi) that they have specifially set up for such things.

At any rate, the second error has already been fixed (which will show up in the next release) and a patch for the first one is pending approval.

A cleverly crafted post that kills two birds with one stone. :P

Thanks for the info!

Speaking of conversation typos and bugs, some I remember in SC2 off the top of my head.

1) The Syreen dialogue as a typo "Mcyon fiends" or some such thing.
2) The Pkunk dialogue when you try to war with them drops you out to space when you say you want to fight them the second time without a response from the Pkunk in any way.
3) One section in the Spathi or Pkunk dialogue puts up too many options or overwrites the other options so you see the previous questions.

I don't know if these were corrected between this and the 3DO, but some things to think about.

How's that a typo? I'd say the syreen would rather see the mycon as fiends then as friends  ;)

edit: oh, sorry, you mean 'Mcyon' instead of Mycon... my bad  :-[
