Some keys not working [german demo], bug in 2nd tutorial?

Postby Momocat » Fri Sep 19, 2008 7:43 pm

Game says in german: Press Space to finish (level).

But space does not react. So game stays in unfinished state.

--------------------------

In the 2nd tutorial something goes wrong. I enter the middle island and get all the hints for that. But then the game says me, i should capture the other island. But how?

I played this 2nd tut. 5 times. Only at the first time I got a tank. The 4 other times I tried the 2nd tut, red and yellow don't even enter the middle.

Something strang is going on. :-/

That's probably something they forgot to change at some point, that "Space" was supposed to be "esc" (to open the menu and quit).


The "tank" you mention is a troop carrier, so you should load some units into it and then move into the island.

I can note that there is an issue that the crate vanishes if you don't collect it in time, making it impossible to finish the tutorial if you take to long to get to the crate.

Firstly, that must be a translation mistake. It is supposed to say Esc.

Secondly, you use the transporter to move your Darwinians to the other islands. Does it not outline that in the text?

Thirdly, they only move to the middle once all tutorial messages up to a point have been followed. I expect you need to capture the hill in the middle before they do anything.

Translation errors:

troop carrier is translated into german "Panzer".

ESC works at game end as desired. So "Leertaste" (space bar) should be ESC.

2nd Tutorial worked this time also. Somehow I managed this time to activate the troop-carrier-drop-trigger.

.......

BTW: IV great job with that localisation so far.

Space Bar used to exit from the game but was changed fairly recently - looks like the translation for that wasn't so lucky.
