I personally think this was super awesome and nice of you to do. I hate playing through some custom stories and there's terrible typos. Keep up the great work, Summer! :3

Thanks, man. It's nice to hear that. Most of the few hundred people who have downloaded my patches don't really post anything nice, it's mainly the ones who don't like it, so this is a nice change. ;D

RE: [Fan Updates] Adam's Custom Story Patches v0.1

I'd like to state that I gave permission for White Night myself, if, by any chance, there is anyone thinking that WN update is not legit.
Though, I don't think there would be 200-300 mistakes. If I can find the time, I'll try to check a differ~ between files to see what was wrong.

This voluntary project is really good, because although I'm not a native speaker and I make mistakes too, I find grammar mistakes highly irritating. I wish this had started a few months ago, since lots of the projects like mine are long finished.

RE: [Fan Updates] Adam's Custom Story Patches v0.1

even though people bitch about these ''copyright issues'' as they call em, id rather download the stories from here than from them. SO MANY stories have such an amount of grammatical errors that its ridiculous. ''cave flooded, the cavein happened to it so much suddently!''
it just really makes me wanna flip a table reading em.

good work, sir! ^^

Thanks for these positive replies, guys. Really nice to see. It's often the negative feedback that stands out loudest, as those happy with the service don't often feel the need to voice their opinion.

Also, the amount of mistakes is just an estimate. Perhaps I've been overestimating more than I think, I'm also interested in checking just how accurate I am with that. Either way, It's not like I'm overestimating rediculously or anything. I count ever comma, every slight change as a correction. Also, some of the changes aren't 100% necessary, but are made to make the sentence sound more natural. I try to avoid those type of changes unless I feel the CS really needs it, cause I want to keep the same feeling intended by the original story.

Anyways, thanks! Also, you guys have any recommendations for popular stories I haven't done yet?

Done!

Insidious added. Will try to work more on this project, but I've been busy testing a ton of stuff...

RE: [Fan Updates] Adam's Custom Story Patches v0.1

Just checking up on the topic, and noticed it said Abduction was removed at the request of the author, but then PM FOR LINK. That seems hypocritical... he wanted it to be no part of his story, not just given out somewhere else. IDK, but I am just trying to help...

Just for the record, no one's PM'd me asking for it.

Edit: Removed offending text.

Yeah, nobody wants to play my mod. Certainly not 32,500 people. And they certainly wouldn't rate it a 9.2/10 after 108 votes.

Seriously, what is your problem? That "thing" is one of the most popular mods out there, and also one of the earlier ones. You continually insult me and my mod, and I just don't understand it. I guess you really are just that full of yourself.
