Recettear: An Item Shop's Tale

Accidentally buying from customers >_<
Is there any indicator that a customer is selling instead of buying?

I know you can read what they say but I sometimes miss it, and even when you do read it some of them are vague.

Eg (from charme) "I stole something from a guy and now he wants it back... How much for this?"

I assumed she was saying she stole it and the guy found out so now she needs to buy a replacement... But no, it turns out that the game expects you to buy openly stolen goods...

Is there any indicator on the haggle screen to say which way the transaction is going?

Ah! Never mind, apparently recettes text ("How much should I...?") is yellow when buying and white when selling.

I still fall in those traps. It helps holding your gamepad HARD so your TV can continue living 1 or 2 days more.

Anyway, you should watch carefully your actions and those of your customers.
I've sometimes done that... Raise it to 130%, then realize I bought something for 130% instead of selling it. :/

another more subtle thing that helps late in the game is when they bring up an item like walnut bread, or thankless statue, something for less than 200, and my cheapest item is over 9000 :spazdunno: , it's a bit of a givaway. of course at that point i don't even notice dropping 130% on something because i'll sell it at 220% when the price shoots up
still really annoying in early game though

I thought I was selling a thankful statue when they were worth double, when it was actually buying. Needless to say, I wasted alot of money.

The text is Yellow if buying it and white if you are selling to them.

Huh. I never noticed that.

It's usually pretty clear enough from the dialogue, but sometimes Arma walks in and just says "This." and you have no idea if it's a buy or a sell. Good to know!
