Re: New hosted branch: Ieoh Jian Council. Feedback here!

What's the thought process behind the name? It's meant to sound vaguely asian, without actually meaning anything. I deformed the words 舞劍 (Wu Jian) which mean something like "Blade Dance", so it fit the requirement of starting with the letter I. The inspiration is Chinese martial arts, bu...

By an in-game toggle I meant a screen that would be shown before the main menu that would allow you to choose language, with a notice that it can later be changed in the config. Hardly would I advocate having an option for things like auto_switch, easy_open, easy_unequip etc. which have an effect on...

Re: Translations

The point of an in-game toggle is that the player becomes aware of the option without having to dig through the documentation. In any case, I think documenting it with a warning of being experimental would be a good start.
