Hi,

 

Does anyone have links to webpages about game development terms?  I searched online but yet to find them in one site.

 

Specifically, what are common synonyms of "bug-fix" which would look better for development documentation such as outlines that one would use in the industry? Is there a most common used equivalent?

Personal life and your private thoughts always effect your career. Research is the intellectual backbone of game development and the first order. Version Control is crucial for full management of applications and software.  The better the workflow pipeline, then the greater the potential output for a quality game.  Completing projects is the last but finest order.

Here is a pretty big glossary:

The word "bug" is pretty standard, maybe someone uses "error correction" or something similar instead but for the most part....yeah...just say bug.

I have often said "bug fix" but I'd need to see it in context (used in a sentence).

Everyone in the industry I know refers to it as "bug fixing." IMHO using a different term would probably make your communication less clear, not more.

The phrase 'error correction' to me implies something along the lines of error correcting codes (i.e. information theory, not software development).

 

'Bug fix' is definitely the most common phrase. I'd shy away from anything more obscure.
