When you hover over locked bought mounted equipment (aka such as vent, spall liner, whatever) in the garage, it says 'demount for gold'. This should be 'demount with gold'.

Wait, so the game should be giving us gold when we demount equipment?



But yea, good catch; although, "demount using gold" seems a bit clearer.


Also, I don't know why people are acting like it's a bad thing to point out grammatical errors in the game. Doing so to forum posts is one thing, but pointing out errors in the game is quite another.

It's doing it. For a price...or for a random in game currency. Not so improper.

Im not sure i follow. They get payed to troll? lol.

I just know this tread is under "Typos, mistakes & errors in translation."

I found a translation error and posted. =)

Crap like these trolls makes me not want to bother.

I'm not trolling. -______-;

It isn't necessarily an error.

Yes, if you spend gold it can be demounted.

The game will demount it FOR gold. Look at it as the game giving you an idea of what they want. Say you are bartering with someone.

"I'll take that for 100 bucks." 'I'll sell it to you FOR 90 bucks and a trade.'.
The game is informing you that it will demount it FOR gold. That is what the game is asking for. It wants you to spend your gold so it is asking FOR it.

It goes either way, but with my current analogy being the most common(which means it would make the most sense to use it.).



EDIT: How could I be a troll and have a 187 rep?  :blink::blink:    :mellow:

You didnt troll. I was referring to the other two guys whos posts a mod deleted were. It just looks like you since they were removed. Thought id post that to let you know.
=)
The actual phrase however is innaccurate. Yes you can spend gold and have it demounted, but the phrasing makes it sound like your getting gold, not spending it. lol.
Anyways. ;)

OK, I've always wondered what "trolling" means.......
