    Quite a pleasant surprise! Well done. Will this mod correct text in a partial playthrough as well, or do I need to start anew?

      Hi my friend, and thank you!

      Yes, it works retroactively. This mod is text only (no logic / scripts / etc), so it updates the text in real time.  And it does not attach to the save file, so you can turn it off at any time and the text will revert back to vanilla.

      However, one thing to bear in mind -- some of the text fixes won't be evident if the quest itself was not fixed.  E.g. some of the journal entries don't show up in vanilla, so use of companion mods like Brothers in Arms Bug Fix Collaboration and Witcher Lore Collection are strongly encouraged.  In that case, you would need a fresh playthrough.  But that is just because those items won't be in your journal, not because the Grammar mod requires it.

      Great news. I'm already using Brothers in Arms Bug Fix Collaboration and Witcher Lore Collection , so no problem ;)

      Then you're all set!   Just add "Grammar of the Path" and watch your journal get massively cleaned up.

    Hi,

    I use both Witcher Lore Collection and brothers in arms, should i give your mod priority over them?

    I suppose yes as, for example, WLC add extra lines, but yours will fix their formatting/spelling mistakes if any.

    Am i wrong?

      Hi,

      You could give this priority over WLC if you want, but it doesn't matter.  Same goes for Brothers in Arms.  WLC for the most part doesn't add new strings; it makes the content accessible in the glossary while using the game's vanilla text.  It adds a handful of strings using new string numbers, so they won't conflict with this mod.  I reviewed the strings contained in WLC and they are all correct.

      I created this mod with WLC installed and verified it, and in my mod setup I give WLC higher priority.  So give priority to whichever you want, but it really doesn't matter.

      Perfect, thank you...

      As i am starting a new game (never had the chance to finish it in the past) , I have decided to translate your mod while going through the story (to avoid spoilers). To do so, I edited the file from "en" to "it" so that your changes will appear in my game even if the language is set to Italian. When i will spot the entries in english, i will replace them with the italian lines, but making sure to keep the formatting and the other changes you made.

      Of course, the lines that contained only typos in the english version, might be just fine in italian; therefore, in that case, i will replace them with the vanilla italian version.

      Thank you so much for your amazing work!

    Really well done Paul! After all that polishing that you and the boys have done, you absolutely deserve to take a rest. I can't imagine how tough it must have been, trying to fix all those pesky bugs on BiA, and now this! I really appreciate the attention to detail. Who needs the remaster, now that almost everything is polished to perfection!!!

    I honestly can't wait until Christmas to start my annual Witcher 1,2,3 marathon! I haven't touched the game yet with BiA, WLC etc... It's gonna feel like a new game for sure. The anticipation is honestly killing me.

      Thank you!  I have to tell you -- I just completed a fresh playthrough of TW3 with BiA, WLC, and Grammar of the Path.  It was amazing.  With all the fixes, new content, etc, it really felt like I was playing the game all over again for the first time.  We're really, really pleased with how all these mods have turned out.

    Hi Paul. Could you add Casimir's death? When I go to talk to him I prefer the way he blows himself up and then I go after Quinto. The diary does not say anything about Casimir's death.

      I missed that scenario in my last playthrough.  Thanks for letting me know.  I'm not planning any additional work on mods right now (I've packed up my tools and taking some time to do other things), but I will add it to the list for later.

    Hey, you already have someone who wants to do the Grammar Correction for the German version?

      Hi Moahofer,

      Nope, no one is working on other languages to my knowledge.  This morning fap0leon reached out to me about some issues with German that may / may not exist in English.  You could touch base with them for details.

    MerseyRockoff was working to fix Witcher 1, and currently Witcher 2.
    Now the legendary Paulr0013 has made another fix to Witcher 3.
    You are awesome!

    I wonder what Konyme is working *thinking*

      Thanks Vince! Good to see you again, my friend.  This mod has been in the works for a long, long time.  I started this back in January.  So glad it's finally done and I'm able to share it with the community.
