Yeah, Greg Field is a proffessional SC player, and the MC once called him Grack and it stuck. The Gracken is an in-game monster whose end move so fast they're blurred.

So, string context is: relase Gracken(monster).
Thank you!

It's a joke item as well, and I don't think it actually appears ingame. (It's definitely not supposed to anyway), so it could be left untranslated. Or removed altogether from the codebase.

Well, the Gracken leaves a corpse, so perhaps have it cookable from Gracken meat (it doesn't leave bones) or something?

It boosts all of your stats by 500 and gives you something like 200000% more speed, I was using it as a debug thing for a while.

I took a quick look and couldn't see anywhere it was obviously broken (but it might be).

What was the exact "msgid" string that causes the problem? There are a couple that use artifact_name.

You might be able to just remove the "<artifact_name>" bit from the translation for it to work, it looks like it should behave correctly even if it can't find it.


EDIT: ahh, i figured it out.

It only removes the prefix if it's the very first thing in the string. But it works fine if it can't find it at all. So just remove it from the translated version and it should be fine :).

Oh!!!...thx a lot...

er...I can't uploaded pic to forums...and it seems I find another bug  ;)

the item in item list “First Aid” and the skills list "first aid” use the same string (line 23685). But in Chinese it should be "First Aid pack" and "First Aid" . there is another "First Aid" string (line 12577) ,I suppose it not be used?

I can't make difficults chinese tran to these two ”first aid“ in the game,and it looks really not standardized...

and sorry for my bad english...

The item should probably be called "first aid kit" in english as well, seeing as that's what the description says it is. I'll change it to that.

I think the other "First Aid" string (with capitals) is for the text when you use the first aid kit in-game, and it gives you the option of what limb to heal. Actually that should just use the name from the .json. So yeah, that needs to be fixed too.

I'm aiming to fix most of the ambiguous strings for 0.9, so the more bug reports the better.

And bad english is fine, i can understand ;).

this two brands use same slogan??

it seems  DoubleTech uses "Built to Protect. Programmed to Serve."
and
Robert's Universal Robotics should uses "R.U.R. Technology you can Trust."

This is an advertisement for DoubleTech brand law enforcement robots. It shows a picture of copbot pepper-spraying a handcuffed rioter. In the background a troop of boy scouts salutes the robot. The caption reads: "Built to Protect. Programmed to Serve."
