FlavorText.xml: [leaderhisher] & [leadergenderherhis] to [leadergenderhisher], [leaderheshe] to [leadergenderheshe], [empireshortname] to [shortempirename] - I'm guessing that these are wrong, but try to make sure
I think so too.
GC2_Conversations.xml: Is [planet] supposed to be [planetname]? Is [playername] or [yourplayername] right? Or should they be [yourleadername]? Are all of these valid?
As far as I can tell, they are valid. I have seen most of those conversations pop up in game, and the variables to do work. The only one I'm not sure about is [yourplayername], because I've never seen the conversations that use it.
Suggested changes: "Genral Industrial Ltd." to "General Industrial Ltd.", Norfok to Norfolk - these seem stylistically appropriate
Yes, tickler sounds much better.
"quantum based mass drivation" to "quantum-based mass ???"
...driver, obviously. The Quantum Driver is a mass driver weapon after all.
admantium/adamantium - I get the impression that this was always a typo and the display names can be changed to Adamantium.
How come I've never even noticed that?
InvTactics.xml: targetted to targeted
I'm unable to find this.
Yeah, that one is difficult. Both terms seem to get used interchangeably in the game.
"Only the Thalan break" to "Only the Thalan breaks"
I'm not sure about this. Thalan is both the singular and the plural. So "break" seems to be right in this case, because "Thalan" refers to them as a species (plural), not as an individual (singular).
forebearers to forebears (wrong word, anyway)
What would you suggest? Precursor maybe?
Suggested change: ToxicAtmosphereReductor Description to "Carbon-based life forms cannot breathe a Toxic atmosphere, although some toxicity is necessary. By introducing certain types of bacteria into the environment, we can reduce the Toxic content of the atmosphere to levels that will support higher forms of life."
Campaigns\DarkAvatar\A Nightmare on Dithir.gc2scenario: Dvithir to Dithir
I'm only seeing this when loading the file with notepad++. However, when loading the file with the scenario editor, it's okay. I'm not going to changes this, because it could affect the victory condition.
One problem that seems to need addressing is that the old campaigns (at least DA so far) refer to technologies that are no longer in the tech three (e.g. Phasors go only to III, not VII). Does the game know to refer to their old TechTrees, or does it still look inside Twilight. If the former, those Psionic edits should be skipped. If the latter, some techs need to be edited (Disruptors after Phasors III?).
The campaigns all use the TotA tech trees. While it is weird that they still contain references to the old techs, it doesn't really hurt, because those references simply don't do anything. For example, you can't preclude a race from having access to Phasors VII yet, if they don't even have it in their tech tree anymore. What I find more baffling is that the Psionic weapons techs still use their old, wrongly spelled names. I thought we fixed those before updating the campaigns. Yet, it also seems to be the case in my mod, Autumn Twilight. It's possible that we fixed the tech names later, and then forgot to re-adjust the campaigns.
In any case, I tried to look deeper into this (and, if needed, fix the campaigns), but ran into the same issues with the editors I had originally with the GOG-version of the game (i.e. map editor doesn't work, scenario and tech tree editor can't find the tech trees). No idea why that is happening again. They worked fine with the first beta-update.
In addition to this, the debug.err is giving me errors when starting the campaigns:

I don't recall that being the case in v2.04. Verifying the game-files didn't help with either problem. Nor did restarting the PC or re-installing the re-distributables (DirectX/Visual C++). I'll try re-installing the game tomorrow, and see if that helps.
