[20:02:25] <michael-kohlhaas> does anybody where i can download ultima 7 in german? i have the floppy disks, but i have no floppy drive :(
[20:03:26] <RadoS> PC-repair shops can give you floppy-drives.
[20:03:43] <Rottingbeef> Hmm!
[20:03:45] <RadoS> Or old company / school PCs being retired.
[20:04:01] <Rottingbeef> That's a good question, though, about if Ultima 7 has a German version available online.
[20:04:22] <Rottingbeef> There are some videos of people playing the German version on YouTube, I think.
[20:04:35] <michael-kohlhaas> i only found the english version on some abandon software sites
[20:04:41] <Rottingbeef> I wonder if they have German versions of Ultima 7 that they somehow ported off of the floppy disks.
[20:05:26] <Rottingbeef> Michael, have you thought of purchasing a USB floppy disk drive?
[20:05:30] <Rottingbeef> It seems like they are quite affordable.
[20:06:01] <RadoS> If you happen to live in HH I could give you some. :)
[20:06:48] <michael-kohlhaas> I live near eisenach
[20:06:56] <Rottingbeef> Where's HH? :)
[20:07:06] <RadoS> Hamburg.
[20:07:33] <Rottingbeef> ah, ok
[20:07:36] <Rottingbeef> Michael, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FCF1menCMd4
[20:07:43] <Rottingbeef> Maybe send this man a message and see if he knows anything?
[20:10:11] <Dominus> michael-kohlhaas: I'd recommend an USB floppy as well. I *do* have the German floppies as well... somewhere...
[20:10:21] <Dominus> perhaps my attic...
[20:11:08] <michael-kohlhaas> i found them in my basement. I hope for a miracle. maybe they are still readable
[20:11:22] <Rottingbeef> Michael, http://www.amazon.de/s/ref=nb_sb_noss_2/275-0054859-5165507?__mk_de_DE=%C3%85M%C3%85%C5%BD%C3%95%C3%91&url=search-alias%3Daps&field-keywords=usb%20floppy%20disk
[20:11:34] <Rottingbeef> If worse comes to worst, you could just order a USB floppy disk drive from Amazon. :)
[20:11:49] <Dominus> but since the Add-ons never got translated, I'd just go for the English version...
[20:12:21] <Rottingbeef> Perhaps I should play the German version of Ultima 7 to practice German!
[20:12:27] <Rottingbeef> Er, well, assuming I can find a copy.
[20:12:30] * Dominus thinks he also imaged the floppies back then... but where did I put THAT?....
[20:13:08] * Rottingbeef learns all of his German from Ultima 7 and ends up speaking extremely archaically and stupidly to random German people he meets.
[20:13:15] * Rottingbeef is quickly ostracized and labeled a weirdo.
[20:15:22] <Rottingbeef> Dominus, when you say the add-ons never got translated, does that include Serpent Isle?
[20:18:28] <Dominus> no, I think that got translated but bot Forge of Virtue for BG and Silver Seed for SI never got translated
[20:18:46] <Dominus> so when you install these your German version becomes English...
[20:18:52] <Dominus> (if that even works)
[20:19:48] <Rottingbeef> k!
[20:20:02] <Rottingbeef> Are you familiar with the game The Bizarre Adventures of Woodruff and the Schnibble?
[20:20:12] <Rottingbeef> It was made by Coktel Vision, a French company, in the early '90s, and published by Sierra.
[20:20:40] <Rottingbeef> I learned the other day that the English voice actors remain unknown to this day.
[20:22:19] <Rottingbeef> Just as there is an obscure German translator somewhere who translated Ultima VII!
[20:24:48] * Rottingbeef imagines a hunched-over scholar from the Monumenta Germaniae Historica Institute sneaking in some translations of RPGs in between his studies of Das Nibelungenlied.
[20:26:06] * Dominus wonders where his CD labeled "the TRUE Ultima Collection" got lost...
[20:26:52] <Lightkey> Rottingbeef: you should be querying Strangerke about that, it's a ScummVM supported game and he's the resident French (*cough* Belgian) PR guy :-)
[20:33:10] <Lightkey> ..and now I typed exult into the search box on GOG.com, what was the name of the game again?
[20:41:10] <RadoS> You know translations always suck.
