Damn I screwed something up.
Notice the blue_location is missing!!
To fix this use an editor like Notepad++ and stream edit the files like such:
I'll have to make another version of the program.
Any suggestions let me know?
Thanks for this. I have run the gameplay folder through your version 4.1 and then edited the "task.....xml" files which have the code of type
<map_location_type hint="Oleg"></map_location_type> in them. Note that they have "green" as well as "blue". This gameplay folder seems to work now .... and it has all of the Russian text translated. As per the previous post I have uploaded a new version of the translation.
I like version 4.1 of the dialogue helper but would probably agree with David on "tick-a-box" manual version ... unless you are confident enough that the automated all-inclusive version will work in all cases.
gamadata\script file translator would be nice ..... but enormously complex and difficult I would guess.
Screwing that program up makes me real mad. Like your 'saying' suggests, here I am testing over and over again and in the back of me little brain it says - don't look at that it is still okay. lol
I do have a program for scripts, but I don't trust it enough to release. It was a real nightmare to do because there is no common standard when typing in code, and variable names are just as random as random can be. And it seems like every mod I attempt to translate there are script files where there is something new to deal with.
Another problem is I have no one to test. What I need is a Guinea pig.
As far as selecting what elements to do, this seems illogical. For example translating <title> text and not <text> text would mean you would have to run the files through the program again, and in many case this will screw up the files, and translating a mod would be more time consuming and prone to error.
Oh well, anything for Stalker!
By the way, Grunter-Hunter and I have spend weeks translating Return of Scar. The Russian to English translations are atrocious. That's a fun mod too, but a biatch to translate even with six translators. Maybe we will go back to that mod some day. But for now we are working on Fallen Star.
Retired from gaming!
