NOTE TO OTHER FORUM POSTERS: I've now emailed the entire below list to Jeff (at support@spiderwebsoftware.com), email being his preferred method of receiving bug reports.

While I appreciate what you’re trying to do here, mikeprichard, I’m not sure this type of topic is especially helpful.

 

I know you mean well, but mass bug topics like this can be a distraction from getting things fixed. At worst, they can least to issues not being reported, and therefore not being resolved. If you need an example of this, check out a similar thread in the Queen’s Wish forums, where there were a number of occasions in which various posters had to step in and email bug reports manually.

 

If you’ve found typos, then that’s great! But they don’t belong here. The designer of these games visits these forums infrequently, and those of us on the forums don’t have the power to fix them ourselves. And, for something like typos, there really isn’t any reason to wait around to collect more of them. Just send them in when you find them – that’s easier for all concerned!

 

So, to clarify, if you find any typos, please report them to this address:

 

support@spiderwebsoftware.com

 

Posting them here will just result in an unnecessary delay!

Thanks, Ess-Eschas, but maybe I need to clarify the purpose of this topic. My intention as mentioned at the top is that this would be one place - rather than various places scattered throughout the forums, which in fact would be a distraction from larger bugs - to first collect a clear list of typos. I would then email the link/list to Jeff, hopefully in time for him to fix in the patch. This would be much more efficient than spamming Jeff with a typo at a time over email, I would think.

And yes, I've been lurking around here for over 10 years, so I'm very familiar with Jeff's m.o. - he almost never checks the forums, except for a day or two after each game releases. So yep, email has always been my way to ensure he sees something!

Trust me, it's not. If you find a typo, just send it over before you forget! Jeff has made it clear on a number of occasions that he prefers this style of reporting, rather than long, collected reports that take a long time to work through.

 

So, to reiterate, there really is no need for a topic like this on these forums. Typos shouldn't be posted on here in the first place, let alone gathered together. Just send your typos over, and avoid all this complication of an intermediate step!

I pay very little attention to any forums most of the time, but I do watch forums right after a release. If you wanted to have one bug collection thread, I would follow it. But the fastest way to get a bug alert right in front of me is to write support@spiderwebsoftware.com. Thanks! I'll look at those typos for v101.

Thanks, Jeff - I did actually send you a couple (sorry for two) emails today and yesterday referencing this topic as well as a couple other more significant bugs. If you wouldn't mind checking back here once or twice more before dropping the patch (since I am adding a few as I go), that'd be great, but understood if you have more pressing things to do right now.

Really enjoying the remake!

I've just completed the game, and so am done with the list of typos in the first post, as already mentioned to Jeff above and over email. Thanks to Jeff/Spiderweb for a fantastic remake - it really brought back the old nostalgia in a fresh way with many appreciated improvements. Already looking forward to wasting more time (in a very good way) on Queen's Wish 2!
