Apostrophes not showing correctly when posting from iPhone

08 March 2020 - 08:14 AM

I've often seen posts from other people that don't show apostrophes correctly. I've never had any problems with my apostrophes and never knew what causes this problem. Normally I always post here from my Mac. However, yesterday I posted from my iPhone for the first time and guess what? Today I noticed my post from yesterday didn't show apostrophes correctly. So, that's where the problematic posts come from. I've just edited my original post from yesterday to improve readability. Then I'll reply to this thread from my iPhone using apostrophes and double quote-marks to show off the problem. Maybe there are other devices causing problems, like Android, Windows or Chromebook. If people have these devices they can maybe post in this thread and let us know what device, operating system and browser they're using to help Frigidman (or whoever is responsible for these kind of things) find the source of this problem.

This is a post I’ve made from my iPhone Xs using Safari.

Let’s post a quote by Steve Jobs, to see how double quote-marks are displayed when posting from an iPhone.

Steve Jobs said: “One more thing...”

Oops, I accidentally edited my original post from my iPhone, instead of adding a new post. Anyway, the first half of the post was made on a Mac and doesn't show any problems. Then I added the three lines at the bottom from my iPhone and they don't show apostrophes or double quote-marks correctly.

Hmmm, my last post was also added to my original post. Apparently this forum merges posts automatically when posting several posts within a very short period of time. Well, the problem is visible, so whatever.

Prodeus (A bloody gore throwback to the 90s)

14 April 2019 - 02:10 PM

I recently discovered a game called Prodeus. It's currently in development, should go into Early Access in the autumn of 2019 while the full release should be in 2020. It's being developed by just two people who previously worked on games like 2016th iteration of Doom, the new Wolfenstein, BioShock: Infinite, Singularity, Payday 2 and some Call of Duty games. The project is also on Kickstarter with at the moment nine more days to go.

The way I'd describe this game is as a bloody gore throwback to the 90s. It's a fast-paced first-person shooter with many enemies coming towards you, a lot of blood and gore, coloured key-cards to collect to open doors, a lot of blood and gore, tons of secrets to find and enemies who'll turn everything into a bloody gore mess when you shoot them. Did I mention the game is full of blood and gore? Blood will even stay on the map, instead of just disappear like in other games. Of course, if you're a pussy you can turn down the amount of blood and gore. The whole game is just very customisable. You can adjust the amount of blood and gore, adjust the graphics to use 216p and sprites to make it really look like a game from the 90s or choose to play in 1080p+ with 3D models, you can customise the HUD and there's a level editor included.

I think this game looks absolutely amazing and according to the FAQ on Kickstarter the game will be available on Mac:
"Linux and Mac support?
Yes! For Early Access, we are targeting Windows, Mac and Linux."
