This was discussed before, and we thought 'have' reads better in all possible situations of party names (think 'The Bandits' or 'Arctic Monkeys'). I think it would read oddly if the sentence went 'Arctic Monkeys has gained x EXP' - it sounds like a bad lolcat phrase.

As for the use of 'their', it can also be used singularly, it is just that we don't have a different word for the singular use like you may do in French and German. But again, if your party is completely male or female, both options are covered (and the mixed party) with 'their'.

That was the reasoning behind those (for me anyway).

Ah, Jim beat me to it!
Conveniently, 'have' works as past tense for both singular and plural party names ( "we have", "you have", "they have", "I have" ) whereas 'has' only covers past tense for an individual. I think...
Oh, the joys of irregular English verbs. Rolling Eyes

The use of 'their' is a grey area. It may be technically more correct to use "his or her", but the use of 'their' as I hear it used in everyday speech has spread to include possession by singles, groups and groups of singles. To my ears, it sounds alright.

In the world eye, after the rune story Charlotte says "He'll have deal with.." I think you're missing a "to" there.

Ionae in Longreach: "I wasn't planning to sit here and wait anywat."

Also, the "eerie" is misspelled in "Eeire Miquelet".

Oh, that's a bad one. And I keep miss-spelling 'eerie', no matter how much Jim has kept correcting me. Confused

I must apologise for the typos. Although 99.95+% of the text is correct, it's the few errors that really stand out.

Ferwin in the Trader town: "It's a letter from girl..." should probably be either "from a girl" or "from the girl", whichever you prefer.

Dialogue on Templeson Bridge after defeating The Crone

"...nethertheless"

Shouldn´t it be nevertheless? I´m no native speaker...

There are instances in which the text glitches for some reason; it's always a thin square followed by a capital E. It may have to do with the fact that the game uses special characters at times, which does not coincide well with Japanese regional settings. In any case, is it possible to fix the text so that it is more compatible? Here's one example:

There are no deliberately inserted special characters. I think what has happened is that MS Word, which I wrote the original draft of the dialogue in, has abbreviated some of them. In this case it's '...' which appears both as '.'x3 and as a single special character.

I will look at adding a function to scan and replace text in the script files, though I suspect it might take less time and be safer to just go through them manually if it is just this one character causing you problems.
It would also be a great help if you could report any other instances of characters that do not display correctly with your language settings.

Thanks.

Inquisitor Thanes speaking to Mericious in Littlehampton. When he mentions "heresy" at the end of a sentence, there is no dot after it.

Edit: same dialog: Mericious says: "I cannot not go with you." There's a "not" too much if I'm correct?

This isn't a typo per se, but in the scene before fighting Shana Ionae threatens to use explosive shell--the one sharpshooter skill she does not have!

In the very first journal entry for Ionae, at the beginning of the 2nd paragraph it reads "Instead of being rewarding for my charity..." it should read 'rewarded'

When ionae get stuck in the world eye after beating batiste, she says "..., and I no longer have to power to do anything but..."

It's supposed to be "THE" power to do anything
