Re: Please have a qualified proof reader verify the dialog

So then you would also find a point at which you'd say "that's too bad to be acceptable," but for you, the dialog in Trine was not at that point. For me, it was, although I was able to let it go easier once I found out that Frozenbyte is Finnish and not English-native. Still, the room for...

Re: Please have a qualified proof reader verify the dialog

@Joel + devs: Don't worry, the English is fine. Spend your time somewhere else. It isn't, it's just that neither is yours, and you apparently think that saying some words is paramount to having a point. I believe the concept of personification needs to schedule a visit with you. Are you free this F...

Re: Please have a qualified proof reader verify the dialog

Anyhow, I'm going to send an email as well, probably not much use doing this in public. :) I also had that though, though only after I'd posted and already been replied to :? Also Mr. Pleasant if you don't like bad English or the dialogue, then I suggest you to stay far far away from Starwolves and...

Re: Please have a qualified proof reader verify the dialog

You've misunderstood. That wasn't a comparison to Trine's quality of writing, it was a correction of ZachCraft statement that "The whole point is to understand something." If that were simply the whole point, than my example would have been adequate. My point was that there is more to it ...

Re: Please have a qualified proof reader verify the dialog

Just stop, bro. You're nit-picking. If your immersion is ruined by a couple bad words that could be argued correct, you should really seek help. Or join the SS, it's your choice. Or, more likely, your understanding of language is pretty poor. Actually, this is proven by you stating that the example...

Re: Please have a qualified proof reader verify the dialog

"Soldier to enemy, blade swings, smashes, wins battle, moon pretty light." Is that adequate for you? According to what you've posted ("The whole point is to understand something"), it is. I had to register just to comment on this. The quality of writing in Trine is nowhere near ...

Re: Please have a qualified proof reader verify the dialog

Pleasant, the grammar is viable to all but the most obsessed grammar Nazis like yourself. The whole point is to understand something, which you obviously do. Stop nit-picking small things that hardly ruin the immersion that Trine tries to provide. You really need to relax. You don't speak for anybo...

Re: Please have a qualified proof reader verify the dialog

For what it's worth, I'll take the magical, fairy-tale dialog over efficient English any day. Keep that gentle moon smiling. ;) It's not a one-or-the-other deal. After all, it isn't the lack of meaning that makes it fairy-tale like, and fairy-tale's aren't characterized by lacking meaning behind th...

Re: Please have a qualified proof reader verify the dialog

>> I'm glad I didn't have to find my Shacknews account info. ;) Ahaha, that's a bit embarassing. >> If we know where the Trine 1 script goes wrong then I guess it'd be even easier to make it better... :) The grammar issues are of the nature of being off-sounding, meaning that it is slightly disorder...

Please have a qualified proof reader verify the dialog

Hello, Trine is a cool game, but one thing that bugged me about it was the terrible English spoken by the narrator. In a video preview for the 2nd game, which I just watched, the problem persists: "Tonight it was calling them again!" That is a hybrid of "Tonight it IS calling them aga...
