Long Sword is french [NON-DFU CAUSE]

I'm not sure where the error would come from, but the "long sword" is in french. I haven't found any other equipment this happens with.

Is this an imported character (one you found on the web)? I'd say the item was generated from someone playing with French version of Daggerfall installed and item name was imported along with character.

If you didn't experience this in #77 or earlier, it could be related some recent item name changes. Should be easy enough to resolve in any case.

Uh, yeah, I messed up on this one :? I didn't notice it until now. My fault, sorry.

Thanks Jay, appreciate the follow-up. You're an amazing tester and this is still something that needs to be fixed sometime I reckon. :)

A hilarious amount of the words for specific types or styles of sword quite literally mean "sword" in the original language, or so it seems.

Or to quote Sir Terry Pratchett, "Mt. Your Finger, You Fool". :lol:
Previous experience tells me it's very easy to misunderstand the tone, intent, or meaning of what I've posted. If you have questions, ask.
