Default Subtitles incorrect

(not sure if this is the right forum for this)

While it is great that Emergence has subtitles and closed captioning enabled, in its current state it is quite annoying. There are many instances where the subtitles do not match the actual dialog, and some dialogs are not subtitled at all.

This is really a shame as subtitles can be a great help to ESOL players.

I have not tested closed captioning much as in Emergence (as in Half-Life 2) there is too much text for it to be really useful.

I hope the incorrect subtitles can be corrected in future updates for Emergence, or at least taken more care of for Ep2.

Which language subtitles are you having problems with? And are there any specific areas this is happening? A little more detail may help us figure out the problem better.

I have only played the game in English.

Basically the subtitles in the big conversations (the more static cutscenes such as the intro, the submarine lab, and the tower/chopper) are subtitled correctly, but the dialog lines outside those scenes is often different in subtitles than it is spoken.

This includes some of the dialog you get from pressing Tab, but also some of the Jessica/JC banter and the "overheard" conversations by enemies.

Interesting. We'll take a look and see if we can reproduce the issue. Thanks for the heads-up.

I know that at one point Michael had mentioned that there are several possible dialog lines recorded, with a subtitle chosen that was an "average" of the lines. Could that be what the poster was referring to?

Well, that does happen sometimes, but when that happens, the game should choose the appropriate subtitle for that new line.
