Ok, here is the official thead to add words that Dungeon Scroll currently doesn't (but should) support.

I'll start it off by adding brookstech's words:

Scholar
Chorale

Please add more as you find 'em! I want Dungeon Scroll's dictionary to be the most complete in the world. It's currently at 70,000+ words, pretty high for only words between 3 and 8 letters.

On
Me
Nat

Can you tell I'm simple minded?

Hmm, hold on now... The minimum word length is 3! http://www.rtsoft.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif

Nat .. hmm.. you mean gnat?  Or nat as an abbreviation for natural, national or perhaps the acronym for network address translation?  Abbreviations and acronyms are a little iffy and generally not supported, although I do throw in some very popular ones that are used almost like words these days.

Caty is not a word according to http://www.m-w.com/.  Perhaps you mean catty?

You know what...I've been playng Dungeon for two days now...and I had no Idea that the minimum word was three letters!

I feel sheepish http://www.rtsoft.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif

As for caty, I was thinking along the lines of catydid, but your right, after some research Caty is nothing more than a proper name. Sorry about that.

Nat was for "network address translation." Working with computers all day messes with me. I have tried to use ROM many times too.

Sorry about the false alarm. The DS word list is very complete. I have, however, found some that I cannot recall at the moment...While in the heat of battle, things tend to get lost in shipping http://www.rtsoft.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif

umm... elite... I checked some of your words and 5 were not english words according to http://www.m-w.com/ and the other 5 I checked  ARE already in my list?!!

I checked my list and there are no word entries with words less than 3 characters long.  Maybe you're not looking at Dungeon Scroll's (v1.12) word list...?  

Also, don't forget, words with more than 8 letters can't be used.

I guess what I'm really looking for are words where you slap yourself and go "why the heck isn't that on the list?" rather than deeply scientific or specialized words that nobody would ever use.  (for instance, I do have a word list based on lawyer jargon (mostly latin) and I opted not to merge it - for one, I don't want the oracle tile always making unknown words, and for two I don't want people to just be able to make random words and get away with it too much. does that make sense?)

Well, they are weird words (i just found them  http://www.rtsoft.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/tounge.gif ), so im not suprised it isnt in m-w.com.

hmm some of the words were already in your list? Must be a bug in my 'find the words that weren't in your list' program :\  http://www.rtsoft.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/laugh.gif

As a random thought, how hard is it to just grab a Scrabble dictionary and go to town?

Seth
10-15-2004, 08:00 PM
Thanks for the words guys.

My dictionary started with something like a scrabble dictionary (from a 250,000 word dictionary?), in fact, I've added many slang words that are probably not in a scrabble dictionary.

04-24-2005, 10:09 AM
Two words that are not accepted by the program:

Modem
Piss

Seth,

You inadvertently left out the word "hitman" from your list of accepted words in DScroll.

I know it's only relatively recent slang for "assassin" but dictionary.com recognizes it as a word.

Seth,

I noticed a few more words left out of DScroll.

They are: 'pager', & 'pict' (as in one of an ancient tribe, the Picts).

Also, there's another word-- I'm trying to avoid vulgarity here. I'm not sure how complete you want your list to be.

It's a 4-letter euphemism for ******: c***.

Hope that helps.

-Robert Banks

Seth,

I've noticed yet a few more words you're left out:

mosh-- as in "mosh pit"
sinch-- as in "to close up around" or "sinch together"
quoth-- "Quoth the raven..."
glute-- a muscle, "gluteus maximus"


I hope that was helpful.

-Robert Banks

You're probably getting annoyed with all these posts by now...

You left a fairly glaring omission this time.

The game wouldn't accept the word "quits".


I'm hoping that this is unique to this word and not a problem with your script for verbs. Is "quit" listed as a verb in your program? If so, don't you have a generic script to accept nearly any verb+'s'?

-Robert Banks

Not at all, I appreciate the words! In fact, I've just updated the game with all of them here (http://www.rtsoft.com/dscroll) and added your name to the help file.

Also, if you want to see the word list directly, feel free to take a look at master_word_list.txt in the dungeon scroll /data directory, you can search for a word to see if it's there or not.

I was about to say no on the swear words because the "Oracle" might make the word by itself and I can only imagine the lovely email someones parents might send - but then I noticed I already had most of the other swear words in there so, well, what the hell.

I'll just add a thing so the oracle will ignore 'nasty' words... yet the player can still input them.

Seth,

I've noticed a few more words that DScroll doesn't support.

As of now, you can't input the word: nametag (or nametags)
Strangely enough, the reverse, 'gateman' is accepted by the game.

Also, it seems that certain words that you can input, nouns, aren't accepted when you add an 's' to make them plural, such as:

glute
c*nt

In addition, the game seems rather finicky concerning which verbs it will accept with an '-er' suffix, or an 're-' prefix. It seems to be a crap shoot, when trying to elongate words in this way.

Hope that helps,
-Robert Banks

Hey, Seth.

I know I am a newb here on all your games. I just did your demo of Dungeon Scroll on the kid version, I LOVED IT! If I had known I would have done the wizard dundeon. Gives new meaning to Scrabble!
I did however, find a work not listed, it would not accept as a word.

Mit

You are so cool!

Hello,

Two words you may wish to add to DScroll (iPhone, if it makes a difference):
Dias
Bastard(s)
Thank you for this fantastic game!
