« on: April 28, 2003, 08:44:37 PM »

PS. Am I the only one that is translating the ProjectMan? I feel sooooo alone here.
PS2. Is there anyone else from greece here? Do I have to translate sprite & scene editor by myself (when they have a .lng file)? It will take decades with the time I can spent into this...(I think I have translated about 70% of the ProjectMan)

hi odnorf,

PS. Am I the only one that is translating the ProjectMan? I feel sooooo alone here.

hmm, i started to make a german translation yesterday and after i finished the menu, i realized two things:

1. i don't use the projectman very often... although it's lovely and i would not like to miss it, i change most things just with ultraedit...

2. all these technical terms sound stupid in german. everyone understands the english terms, i understand them even better in english than in german... ;)

so i stopped translating, maybe if someone really needs a translation i'd have a second look into...

Aye... me too. I don't use the ProjectMan very often... and I am using windows notepad (yes... I am crazy...) althought I'm thinking of trying ultraedit...

2. all these technical terms sound stupid in german. everyone understands the english terms, i understand them even better in english than in german... ;)

They sound stupid in greeks too. It's a really difficult task. I'm changing everyhting over and over to try to make them  look good...


so i stopped translating, maybe if someone really needs a translation i'd have a second look into...

Well, I'm not using the greek translation. I am just doing this 'cause I love this engine and I want to give something back to mnemonic (maybe one day I will be able to give him money with a commercial game ;) )

That's true. I'm also still doing most organizing in FAR Manager, moving files, tweaking image references in a .scene file etc. IMHO ProjectMan is great for keeping an overall view of your project, to easily navigate to certain parts, to launch external editors and to compile the final packages, but you'll spend most of the time using the external tools anyway.
I believe this approach is the best, because it doesn't dictate you strictly how you should work.

Funny feeling, btw. I've spent quite a long time of my life translating other people's programs (games, to be exact), now other people are translating *my* programs. Creepy! ;D

You must have a lot of patience! :) I am trying to translate 300 lines (the projectman) and I can't do it for more than 10 minutes a day...

Have you ever translated any adventure game? And particular any well-known adventure game?

 :o ;D :o ;D That's really cool!

PS. Did you liked Gabriel Knight 3 or I am the only one in this planet that think that this is a great game? (I assume that you have played it since you are the one who translated it for your country.)

I *love* the GK series! I don't understand why there's so much controversy about GK3, I think it's an excellent game; for me it's one of the best AG's of all time.

YES.... It's one of the best. I think that it's unique camera movement (and not actor movement) is one of the most revolutionary ideas I have seen in computer games the last 10 years.  I REALLY LOVED IT.

PS. We need an irc channel :) Something like #WME
