Training Mission Text Needs Editing


Recommended Posts

The text of the books in the training level needs a little editing.

There are a few sentences that get cut off. Maybe that's just a bug? Example in the melee book:

> Try to counter-attach immediately after your foe misses or is blocked, before

Also some of the wording is confusing, such as this part from the Gamma/Brightness book:

> The Gamma slider adjusts the mid range brightness the most and less towards top and bottom (which are anchored).

Would it be helpful for someone to go through all the training books and edit them to fix these issues?

Sure, it sounds like those texts could do with some finetuning, that'd be appreciated.

I've attached the .strings file which contains all the lines in that FM english.txt. There's also a short non-internationalised text left by Bikerdude at the bottom of this .xd file: training_mission.txt

If you want to test your changes ingame, change the .txt extensions and create new folders for them as below:

(Usually texts aren't that unwieldy to work with in TDM, it's because of the internationalisation of the text files of the "official" FMs)

      It's funny how perception changes over the years. I've been replaying Bioshock in its Remastered version, and I'm surprised how bad the level design actually is. It's just a series of abstract corridor mazes that you can't really map out in your head. There's nothing that would ground them in any kind of reality, fictional or otherwise, no sense of place people could live in. It's almost like Wolfenstein 3d with cool art deco assets.

      Anyone here played Inscryption? At first, I was like "no, I am not going to play a stupid card game", but this game is so much more than that. It is so meta, full of 4th wall breaks, and feels so damn spooky and weird because of it. Absolutely recommended, if you can stand the visuals. I recommend not reading up too much on it, as that could easily spoil half the incredible surprises. Just know that what you see in the beginning is by far not everything.

      Tried to make a tdm advertisement commentpost at one of civvie11 youtube videos about T2. Post got marked as spam. His problem (to not discover TDM for himself),..not my problem.
      But some help of some fellow TDM yt-videocomment posters would be nice. To ask him and others, to play TDM. To get more players/creators.

      Currently Profile Information has 3 fields, these are shown in forum posts under your avatar:
      1. Gender
      2. Location
      3. Interests
      I think that it could be useful to have an extra field called "Operating system" (under location). It can be useful for tech support and to see what people use.
      Alternatively it could be a more general term, like PC system, so that you can for example state that you use an AMD gpu.
