I am in a slightly better mood, but I did feel attacked by Gary’s tone. The bug report template does not apply for a typo. There was no better detail a regular user could give than: chapter 11, mutiny’s quest, xione’s statement of a particular word, with the misspelling explicitly called out to make for an easy find and replace.
Someone convince me that the bug report template has any significance here. Hawx tried. But in filling out the template, what he provided is noise, not any useful information. No dev will use any of the information to solve this simple issue. “I expected no typos?” As Gary showed, that’s not useful data. I don’t know any platform anyone would develop on where they couldn’t trivially do a find for “backgrgound” and replace it with the correct spelling. Typos in text files aren’t hard for developers with a development environment.
A screenshot may have helped, but doesn’t give any other mission info. I didn’t even realize that the mission has a title. I figured “mutiny’s quest in chapter 11” was specific enough.
@Gary - I say this sincerely: thank you for providing the exact data to locate the typo. You see the game from a perspective I have no interest in seeing, and I’m grateful for the added detail.
I absolutely disagree that spending time to fill out a detailed bug report would have made it any easier on the devs. When my reports are insufficient, Salty calls me out and I give better details. It has happened, but not often.
I’ll be quiet now.
