Clean up[edit]

I've tried to reorganize and clarify this article to give it a consistent flow, remove the most blatant speculation, and otherwise neaten up the writing. --Boradis 01:24, 14 December 2006 (UTC)

A little more neatening and tidying, but it really needs to be cut down to about 1/3 this long. --Boradis 23:46, 11 January 2007 (UTC)

Spelling errors in References[edit]

Can someone fix this? I can't seem to figure out how, but the reference text at the bottom should read like this (there are spelling errors as well as transcription errors):

Vergil: Insane buffoon! I don't know where you came from but you don't belong here. Now leave! Jester: Zowie, that was close. But you've taken quite a trouncing today, haven't you Vergil? You could have chopped me into confetti by now if you were in tip-top condition. Vergil: Damn you! Jester: You have lost... Arkham: Because you've underestimated humans.

Also, the following is from a seperate bit of the script completely...

Jester: It was quite a ride, you know. If any of you had died, my little plan would have gone to waste! So my job was to let you battle each other in order to weaken you, but at the same time I needed to guide you here and make sure you were kept alive. I even went so far as dressing like a complete idiot! 04:12, 17 April 2007 (UTC)

This is a good point. I've noticed other gamescript cites we've used that contain errors, mispellings, and other issues. Something we should all keep in mind is that we can't assume a gamescript transcribed by someone else is correct. All the quotes we use should all be double-checked ideally against our copies of the game -- or at least by checking one of the many online archives of the cutscenes. If one reader mentions it then hundreds or thousands have noticed it, but didn't bother to post. Thanks for the heads-up! --Boradis 05:05, 17 April 2007 (UTC)
No problem. Should I search through the DMC articles and see if I can find more transcription errors? I'm pretty familiar with the game script, although anyone who felt like watching the subtitled scenes on YouTube could do the same. --Edit, I notice that this particular script error seems to be the product of directly copying a game script on that has quite a few errors in it, so I'm going to work through my copy of the game later this week and try to produce a script that's as accurate as possible. 13:23, 17 April 2007 (UTC)
Great. I've done some cleaning up of the script quotes on the article that's currently the top of the "Devil May Cry" taskforce's list, DMC3. You might also want to consider getting a Wikipedia account so you're not just an anonymous IP. --Boradis 07:15, 18 April 2007 (UTC)
I had one, I'd just forgotten to sign in! Silly me. I'll post a link here once I've posted a more accurate script somewhere. Recalcitrancy 18:25, 19 April 2007 (UTC)
