    Hola amigos:

    En esta frase: when the (mechanical) game has a hard down, no tengo la menor idea de lo que significa hard down, pero quizá tenga algo que ver con descompuesto o falta de rentabilidad. A ver si alguien sabe qué pueda ser.

    Gracias de antemano ;)

    Hola,

    ¿puede que sea "una fuerte caída"? Yo diría que sí.

    Saludos.

    Creo que "hard down" es una metáfora que viene del futbol norteamericano. No tiene nada que ver con una caida.

    Puedes darnos un poco más de contexto. Chris tiene razón que "down" es del vocabulario del fútbol n.a.

    touchdown
    first down
    second down
    etc.

    "That was a hard down to make." (aquí "hard" signficaría "difícil.") Pero con tu "juego" no tengo la menor idea sin mas contexto. :D

    down = no funciona


    Creo que "hard down" aquí significa que no funciona y es muy serio.

    En este caso creo que no tiene nada que ver con downs in football.

    Your grey matter is working overtime, Edwin! I like your idea.

    Hi there again,

    Yes, that's it, we say "el sistema ha caído" or "el servidor ha caído" when we can't access the system or the server we are connected to.

    Bye.

    En España, diríamos..."una díficil papeleta por hacer"
    for example:

    The Barcelona was two down in the minute 81 and Messi out, it was almost impossible to win, a real hard down to make for anyone
    El Barcelona iba dos goles perdiendo, en el minuto 81, y Messi fuera del campo(sustituido),...era casi imposible ganar, una muy dificil papeleta por hacer para cualquiera.

    Please correct me, thank you in advance
