[00:42:10] <Dominus> bah, that's what you get for setting one's mom up with skype... never ending video calls in the middle of the night :)
[00:53:57] <butterflyTK> set her up with exult ;)
[00:55:38] <Dominus> suuurrrre
[00:56:04] <Dominus> but well, since I already set her computer up with vnc I could help her play it :)
[00:56:27] <Dominus> otoh and I don't want her to read the documentation and say *anything* about it :)
[00:58:44] <butterflyTK> okay :) please ask her if there is a patch to make an english version a german? ;p
[00:58:58] <butterflyTK> btw she will love you ;)
[01:02:50] <Dominus> there is no patch
[01:03:56] <butterflyTK> hm sad, buyed an good old game for nothing1
[01:04:39] <Dominus> haven't we've been over this before not too long ago?
[01:06:01] <butterflyTK> I don't know. what do you mean?
[01:07:03] <Dominus> I just remember a similar discussion before
[01:07:25] <butterflyTK> with me?
[01:07:45] <Dominus> I'm not sure I didn't remember the name :)
[01:07:56] <Dominus> anyway BG was released in German
[01:08:11] <Dominus> BUT the FOV addon wasn't
[01:08:23] <Dominus> and the addon changed the language to english :)
[01:08:54] <butterflyTK> hm yes I know
[01:09:49] <Dominus> so, yes, no patch or you would have found it by now
[01:10:15] <butterflyTK> I asked here something about uwadv and the gpl, for a translation tool. may be you mean this case.
[01:10:16] <Dominus> generally Germans speak enough English to get by with U7 :)
[01:10:45] <Dominus> nah, the conversation I had was explicitly about U7 and German :)
[01:11:34] <butterflyTK> not me. ;p
[01:11:54] <Dominus> yes, I see it now
[01:12:25] <Dominus> it was sonydx on octobre the 30th http://log.usecode.org/exultlog.php?log=30Oct2010
[01:12:32] <butterflyTK> would be great if there could be a translation released
[01:12:56] <butterflyTK> yes, that is me :)
[01:13:08] <Dominus> so that was you after all :)
[01:13:21] <Dominus> there could be a translation released
[01:13:29] <Dominus> only someone would need to do it
[01:13:50] <Dominus> Exult does allow third party transaltions
[01:13:55] <Dominus> see SI-Franch
[01:14:00] <Dominus> SI-French
[01:15:25] <butterflyTK> my english is not good enough. I would code a tool, what assists in translation.
[01:18:05] <Dominus> SI-French has the tools that help in translation
[01:18:06] <butterflyTK> imagin you have a label above with the english texts, and below some editboxes for the translation; and at all they are synchronized.
[01:18:24] <Dominus> exactly something like that :)
[01:19:02] <butterflyTK> ok, that is logical ;D
[01:19:55] <Dominus> see tisane http://si-french.sourceforge.net/tisane.php
[01:20:39] <Dominus> http://exult.sourceforge.net/forum/read.php?f=1&i=332913&t=332913
[01:20:51] <butterflyTK> thx, I just wanted to ask this :)
[01:22:04] <Dominus> if you take on translation, please spare us automatic translations via google or something like that... es gibt nichts schlimmeres als ein Roboter der versucht Kontextlos zu ├╝bersetzen :)
[01:25:41] <butterflyTK> no way, my english is too bad, and already my french ;)
[01:28:49] <Dominus> well, in that case make an automatic translation from english to french and then from that french automatic into german
[01:29:01] <Dominus> that sounds like a great way to play the game :)
[01:29:31] <Dominus> anyway for something like that you'd need a team. the SI-French translation was done by a team
[01:32:42] <butterflyTK> yes, I would only code the tool and seeing what happens.
[01:35:23] <butterflyTK> ...for uw1 + 2 first.
[01:38:56] <Dominus> which will be more fun since no working engine like Exult exists for uw
[01:39:02] <butterflyTK> Im just asking myself, if I could simply run the code for the encoder in reverse ;p
[01:39:19] <Dominus> huh?
[01:39:25] <butterflyTK> there is uwadv
[01:39:41] <Dominus> as I wrote, working engine
[01:39:54] <Dominus> uwadv is a nice demo but not a working engine
[01:40:22] <butterflyTK> ok
[01:40:26] <Dominus> not to mention, it's a dead engine
[01:41:26] <butterflyTK> yes. they wrote on their page, that it is a engine.
[01:41:26] <Dominus> abysmal is not getting further as well :(
[01:42:11] <Dominus> yes uwadv is an engine but you cannot PLAY UW with it and it's dead for years
[01:42:25] <butterflyTK> I dont know anything about reverse engineering.
[01:43:10] <Dominus> THAT part has already been done for uw
[01:44:22] <butterflyTK> hm, there is a format spezification in the uwadv docs.
[01:44:41] <Dominus> yes, the reverse engineering has already been done
[01:44:54] <Dominus> (mostly)
[01:45:34] <Dominus> only thing left is construct a working engine around it
[01:46:30] <butterflyTK> that dont sounds to hard.
[01:46:52] <Dominus> he he
[01:47:06] <Dominus> actually you just need to whip uwadv in a playable state
[01:47:34] <butterflyTK> Im sorry, I need a cup of sleep.
[01:47:43] <Dominus> me too
[01:47:55] <butterflyTK> thank you and cu again! ;D
