A strange request
« on: September 27, 2007, 12:48:11 PM »
Well, i was wondering. My NPC mod is completely finished. All areas work fine scripts run smoothly, all is well and good. But here is my problem. Is anyone here willing to check my dialogues, interjections etc, and fix grammatical errors. Since English is not my native language I can not expect that everything is written correctly. And if someone is willing to do so where can I post my txt file.
Thank you.

You could use a temporary hosting server like http://rapidshare.de - I used it myself in my time.

But what do you mean by txt file? An NPC mod is usually more than  that - as you said, it includes at least area script, .d files, .cre files, etc.

And congratulations on finishing an NPC mod, of course. Will you tell us more? You are welcome to register, by the way, should you wish to.

By txt file i meant text document that contains all my custom dialogues. There is no need of posting entire mod, because I only need my dialogues to be fixed. Grammatical errors to be precise.
RAPIDSHARE???
Isn't that site illegal? I really don't feel comfortable to post something there.

Ah, so you require your dialogues to be proofread.

Rapidshare itself isn't illegal - it is true that it is sometimes used for illegal purposes, however. Earlier closed betas of Xan SoA and open betas of lvl1npcs by Nythrun were both uploaded there.

I would recommend posting dialogue samples - in this thread, for example, so that potential proofreaders know how good you are, how much work they are looking at, and so on. I am not a native speaker, either, but I think it would help. And then you could e-mail your files to the relevant person.
