English grammar help

POMPOM Member Posts: 2,599
hey guys this might sound stupid for some of you but i opened this topic for grammar help..
if you dont mind , ill ask you from time to time to help me phrase sentences, i do it because english is not my native, and i want to make the text graphic with no mistakes.. i hope you understand.
i will not open new topic every time , i use this one and you may too!
thank you for your understanding..

so for my first sentence:
i have actors that go toward a target ( one at a time) , and i want the player to perform the action that is written on the actors, when they hit the target .

i need an instructional sentence for this..with few words,
what do you suggest?

    I think you'd get more suggestions if you wrote it and let people correct it, as I can't picture quite what you want.

    Yeah, impossible to tell what you need... what do the actors do?

    My bad...
    There are fireball that goes toward a target
    (on the fireballs there are commands written)
    Ok it needs to be something like:
    "Perform the action when the fireball hit the target"

    haha this is harder then i thought,
    i have the "actions" words already
    i know english, after all we are talking ;) ,
    what i need is the explanation sentences ...
    something like:

    "Perform the action when the fireball hit the target"
    is it english correct?

    p-o-m <

    "Perform the action when the fireball hit the target"

    is it english correct?

    No..it is not correct.

    This is:

    "Perform the action when the fireball hits the target"

    English is weird:

    Singular Plural
    I hit .... we hit
    You hit .... you (plural) hit
    It hits .... they hit
    (and with helping verb...It will hit...is correct)

    It (fireball) which is singular, uses what appears to be a plural verb.

    Nouns are different.... hit is singular; hits is plural
    (yuck...looks like it should be 'are' instead of 'is'! in this sentence, no....but in: Hits are easy to get...yes!)

    I suggest you gather a txt file of your English that displays in your game...and post the text in the forum; someone will correct. Don't be afraid...we all need help some time.

    good that you want your game to look the best it can!

    Yes, and most of us who speak it, don't do it well.

    Especially on the web...
