Hi C1 team...I found some wrong spelling in the inscription of the He-162, just take a look:
http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v651/KingFab/He-162text.jpg
No1: there stands"fahrt ein" right is: "f√¬§hrt ein"
No2: there stands "Fahrwerksbetatigung" right is "Fahrwerksbet√¬§tigung"
ok, these 2 are difficult for a not german, when you have no "√¬§" on your keybord....but,
No3:there satnds"umgekegt", right is: "umgelegt"
I know that "k" and "l" are close together on the keybord, but that could have been avoided...
don't think I'm smallminded, I just want to make the game better, and more correct
thanks for your time! and for the great game!

these are minor things other ac have spelling errors too, i think there is more important issues which need resolving first.

Yes, the spelling is definitely Untermodelled, or is kompleateliy inkorected.

I wholeheartedly agree. This is nitpicking at its finest. I mean its not like non functional fuel gauges in things like the P-40 or mis calibrated ones in the 110G2 are more important than .. over an a on an almost impossible to see plaque.

Its ok to point these out and everyone gets a laugh from it but don't honestly ask for it to be corrected, its a lot of work for practically no real refinement.

The only thing that made me even post this is your statment of "I know that "k" and "l" are close together on the keybord, but that could have been avoided...".

Grammer and spelling mistakes happen, especially when its probably not one's native language. You know like forgeting to put a . after No in your No.#. Or not placing a - in small-minded. Or hiting a before t and mispelling 'stands' as (No3:there satnds"umgekegt", right is: "umgelegt")

I don't know how much work it realy needs to change that, but I tought, it's not that much...
because writing it wrong took only a second!
Maybe modeling a wrong spelled plaque takes more time, but looking up the right spelling of words takes only 5 min.
I'm not the guy who's sticking to that little mistakes everytime when it's not changed in the next patch, but I just want to mention it...
and I could mention some more problems if you want, that the F2A2 isn't flyable in early marines campaigns, or that a german tank is part of the red army headquater in destroyer campaigns(which looks like historical nonsens to me...)
or that all the new american p-39's have 20mm's, which should only the british p-400 should have...

and don't complain about my spelling, my teachers did that in every language I have learned so far, thats why I know that wrong spellings happen, andI was glad that somebody told me, when I wrote something wrong, that I could changeit to a better status!!

I was simply looking around the beautyfull cockpit, and looked at the many details, which are great, and sorry, that I mention wrong written words of my mother language...
often enough I don't mention them when I have written something...surprised me too, that I have found them, because my writing and grammar isn't the best...

Isn't there also something like this in the Spit Mk5 with a placard about "Not Certified for International Use" or something to that effect that has to do with current flying regulations. It may have been removed by now I haven't flown the plane in a long time but I'm sure there are little things in all the cockpits that aren't 100% but I don't think they really detract from enjoyment of the game.

It is a small thing and there are bigger things to fix, but it also does detract a bit from the immersion, especially if it's your home language.

I also have problems with the spelling in the game though. It does not take long to open a text file (which is what programming code is) and correct a few words - in fact it takes about as long as writing this post. The "Chose Side" button on the QMB menu for example. The cockpit images may take a bit longer but it has been years now for some things.

It seems sometimes that it takes more time telling people how it would take too long, than it would take to just do it.

Anyone noticed the weird wobbling propellors that have been around at least since FB? And the off centre Fw190 spinner?

There's a lot that good in the game, and it's unfortunate that little niggling things can't get straightened out. A lot of immersion comes from the little things being unnoticed. Things that should be part of the background, but get noticed only when they're wrong.

Oh well, my 2 cents worth

Cheers
Schuss

I used to collect WW2 militaria. There were a number of spelling mistakes in inscriptions on them, so an incorrect spelling is not necessarily historically inaccurate. I also once owned a US anti-gas hood which proudly stated that it had been manufactured on the 32nd October 1942 :-). Mistakes happen: spelling wasn't totally critical to function, least of all the odd umlaut.

Ok I have some whyning to do too. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif The IAR-80/81 has a compleatly wrong prop pitch system. ( constant speed instead of german VDM variable prop pitch ). Plus the upper rear part of the fuselage is so wrong. Makes it look so ugly http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/cry.gif http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/cry.gif

Man, if only it were that everything with the flight models and weapons and damage models was so right that a couple of missing umlauts on a decal were cause for alarm....

Maybe one day...

Hi Foxtrot,

I pointed out these errors and others (e.g., the variometer needle) a while ago to Oleg, since I was the one who created the model. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif Unfortunately he declined to correct them, because there are just so many other pressing issues right now with FB/PF.

Also, I don't think you are nitpicking at all. Plenty of other cockpit inaccuracies in other planes have been noted and corrected, but of course these have been for more popular planes. Such is the fate for the Volksj√¬§ger. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

Well at least with german its spelled using alphabet characters, imagine this with Kanji or Katakana Japanese cockpit http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif and you only rely on how the shape looks http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

It seems though that there is a multitude of German speakeing folks here but not much Japanese so these errors will surely be more noticeable.

nit picking wasn't my intention, just thought, If you find something that's wrong, tell somebody who might correct it...I found this wrong spelling some month ago, and posted it over at IL 2 skins, but know I have found so many other tiny or less tiny things , that I joint this forum. I know there are more important thinks to patch, but It's good that the responsible have knowlage of these tiny mistakes...and you know, many tiny make one big mistake....
