Hamer -- about what year was the game released? You could look at the "years" category in the Pagoda Game Database to see if any of the titles look familiar.

3 dots to an ellipse, the top one is correct.

It's been a long time and memory is faded, but does Thorgel's Quest ring a bell?

BubbaJake -- Well, I researched this a bit more. grin and neither of the examples I gave are technically correct.

If you were typing a document you were going to hand to someone (not sure how trying to code this would work, so maybe internet rules are different) You would use an ellipsis (3 dots -- called ellipsis marks, even though they look just like dots to me -- with a space between each ellipsis mark) and then a period since the ellipsis is at the end of the sentence.

Maybe I should notify a moderator . . . .

Somehow this all seems crazily scrupulous, though. Just throwing a bunch of dots down in whatever number is much more cool.

IMHO

For what it's worth.

For those careful enough to want to use ellipses correctly.

Hamer -- did you ever figure out that game? think

Yes .... Although I do try to always use proper "grammar" I must admit to throwing dots down with gay abandon on any occasion !!!! laugh laugh
