    Default String Table Error list

    I understand entirely how these reference errors occur. I work in a multi-lingual system where all text the user sees is referenced in a similar way (we would talk about a @SYSxxxxxxx errors). One major difference is that we would see for example @SYS345678 appear so that we know the specific invalid reference. We also have a script that we can run that checks for invalid references that don't exist in each of the language files and can report on redundant text in the language files that isn't referenced in the code.

    So I get how these things occur.

    That doesn't stop me from having a face palm moment when I see the string table errors ingame. Particularly as these should be trivial to fix.

    But rather than just bemoan the fact that they exist, why don't we help out by actually compiling a list of these to help shortcut the fix. There's been some success with the Monster Manual thread so I'm confident that we can do something similar with these.

    Some are easily repeatable, others you catch glimpses of. It seems that when there are a number of speech options, if one is an invalid reference, it automatically rolls onto the next one - capturing them can be tricky but they're still worth listing.

    there's this gatekeeper dude in the marketplace (leave airship, turn left) - Kobutta the Gatekeeper
    he kinda waves at you and invites you to chat (Adventurer, I should speak with you)
    but when you click him, all ya get is string table error. also, he has an empty title <>
    EDIT: looks like he no longer has string table error, instead he remains silent...

    Also, here are a few issues from Heart of Madness pack including a string table error; I have not checked recently if these still occur

    The quest journal. Yes, seriously, though it's not the all-zeros version.

    For what it's worth, the number after DID is supposed to be that reference. You can even see a (theoretically) meaningful value in Sunnie's Quest Journal error. (It's probably meaningful. I haven't looked it up.)

    Of course, when things break, sometimes the reason the string isn't working is because the reference to the thing with the string is broken, so it's roughly set to 0x00000000000000000000000000000000000000ish. Which does make it a bit harder to fix.
