    Hey Ho Pirates! <img src="style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/hi.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":gday" border="0" alt="hi.gif" />

    after a long time I am back!

    I work on a german Translation of SofS. Is anyone interestet on it?
    I have managed to change most of all Game Menus to german language. (6 hours of work! huh!)
    Now i am beginnig to translate the rest of SofS into german.
    I think after the good work all the other translators have done on SofS it would be only a question of Days
    to translate the files from english to german.

    At this stage i only work on the text not on the Sounds!
    If there anyone who had german dialogsounds i will try to put it in!

    I am moderate in english so i think i can manage to translate it into german is just a question of time .......
    the only problem i have: i am not so good in spelling and grammer so there would be some very free
    translations in the game ....... but don' t mention it if you get what is mean

    I also have some questions to ask.

    It is possible to change piters blacks nationality? into Pirate .... or will this break the quests?
    which file had to be changed thats piter becomes a "pirate" and that he will sail under
    Pirate Flag as standard?

    How do I add new cannontypes? I have managed to retexture the original Frigate an i also have get the Ship into
    the game! Thanks again to the people who have explained such things in this Forum.
    Now I want to get a new 36lbs cannon in the game thats only avialbe for my Special frigate.....
    Whats to do? that this work?

    I have tried to declare a new cannon but AoP broken up with an error message
    It was not able to get the var 36a of my new cannon in cannons.c file

    4 lines that this was not von an in the last line of the error.log "missed :"
    what this mean? i don't now.... <img src="style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/dunno.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":shrug" border="0" alt="dunno.gif" />

    in SofS there is also an new cannontype maybe i can get it there what to do <img src="style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/bounce.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":b:" border="0" alt="bounce.gif" />

    So far so good i will post again if i am ready to send the german version of SofS <img src="style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/wink.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=";)" border="0" alt="wink.gif" />

    So long Pirates

    under the folder:
    AoP/Program/ships/ SHIPS_INIT.C

    Change these lines in the description of your frigate

    refShip.Cannon = CANNON_TYPE_CANNON_LBS16;
    refShip.MaxCaliber = 24;

    Copy the stock German sound files in the russian folder.

    When your finish with the translation send me the files. My english is not really good.

    @ yo ho ho

    your answer includes not what I want to know.

    Look at cannon_ini.c and you will get it..... the lines they you write here are only
    declaring the cannontypes that the ship can "mount" intresting for me is only the line
    refShip.MaxCaliber = "my kaliber" you know? but this do not add any NEW cannontypes into the
    game for ships.

    With the sound files i have the same idea but the problem would be that there are a couple of
    Files been missed by the game if i only copy them.
    the same problem would be with de PotC videos they are in Russian...... but i need german videos <img src="style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/bounce.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":b:" border="0" alt="bounce.gif" />

    for example raise sails sound & land sighted an so on.... but all the normal sound should work.....
    And at least it is not done with simply coping the stock files.... i had to change the Default language
    to German to avoid kyrillic signs in game ...... ÄÜÖ and so on are still kirillic if you only copy the files
    and simply translate them into german


    BUT BE SURE I WILL DO MY BEST!


    I still need some HELP wiht my questions could anyone EXPLAIN How do i do that what i asket?

    Change Pieters nationality and add a new cannontype?

    THX and So long Pirates!


    PS: Status report about the work


    nearby all Menus, interfaces and at least descriptions are now in german again.
    Mainmenu, skill and abilitys, good, items, and all descriptions of them are now in german
    I will check again if any file is not translated an will correct this.

    common dialogs and citizen dialogs are also now in german.
    Tutorial dialoges are in german.
    Priest dialog now german.


    but there are many files left ....... i work on it


    If anone want my work now just E-Mail me and i will send the Files.......
    or just send a PM with your E-MAIL adress and i will send it.....

    But remember it is not done!!! there are certain files they i have not translated yet!

    So long

    HeyHo Sailors! <img src="style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/hi.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":gday" border="0" alt="hi.gif" />

    A little update from my side.

    After this weekend are all common dialogs in german again!

    This means that nearby all shipyarders, traders & tavernowners are "speaking" german with you again.

    I am still working on the Questcharacters and the Gouvanors

    There are also some worrying facts.... but this doesn 't matter the translation works
    very well...... no bugs or any errors during gameplay....

    Only the menu textures do not fit......
    (Mainmenu... if you wanna save or push ESC during the play)

    so far so god.... be sure i am on it <img src="style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/wink.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=";)" border="0" alt="wink.gif" />

    So long

    <b>UPDATE UPDATE UPDATE</b>


    Hay Mates! <img src="style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/hi.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":gday" border="0" alt="hi.gif" />

    Now are all (and i mean all) "normal" Dialogs in german again!
    This means: that all traders, tavern owners, Citizens and most of the Gouvanors speak german with you now!
    Also all gamemenues in german and the interfaces... the same with the descriptions of items, goods and ships and so on.


    Now begins the difficult part!!! Translating all Quest and Storycharacters.... and the Queststrings.... PUH!!! it seems that this
    would cost more time... anyway..... i am lokking forward and i think i can finish this in a few weeks.....
    we will see....

    At least i still MUST know how to change peters nationallity.... i dont wanna play as a spain captain!
    And i still don't know how to add a new cannontype.... or what files must be changed that this will work....
    its clear that i must edit all files in the cannons folder.... but there are also other files they must bechanges that a new cannon
    could work??? I don't know <img src="style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/dunno.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":shrug" border="0" alt="dunno.gif" />


    So long sailors!

    Hey Ho people!

    Here now that one what you have awaited <img src="style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/wink.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=";)" border="0" alt="wink.gif" />
    No no sorry not hte complete translation but an prerelease!

    This one is ONLY prerelease so if you recognize some errors or strange things you should write it in this tread!
    You install it simply by copying the files in the corresponding folders!

    IMPORTANT!!!!!! the english version of SofS should be installed!!!!

    be aware this release is prealpha very much work is to do on this!
    I release it in case i have not much time to work opn so feel free do do the translation if you want!

    Other reason is AoP 2 maybe released Q1 2009 so my work is quite useless ........ or it simply seems so.
    In case City of abandoned ship is based on SofS.. in my opinion!

    Whatever i will upload the files today on the Ftp so feel free to get it an enjoy my work!
    Feel also free to work on the translation!

    c ya then!

    HARR only 500K to attach 1.2 MB Damned ........ i will post the files to the admin hope he will put the files on Pirates ahoy
    so that you can download it! be patient! I think you can get them soon!

    allright i have send the files to William...
    i hope he will put the files on!
    so be patient.....

    if any one of you know how to upload the files just write it and i will try again to upload the package

    The AoP Files FTP doesn't exist anymore. Use the PotC one and make sure you mention AoP in the folder name to prevent confusion.
    Cap'n_Drow is the person you need for anything AoP or translation-related. I only do PotC Build mod work and am hardly familiar with anything else. <img src="style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/mybad.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":facepalm" border="0" alt="mybad.gif" />

    The English translation is unavailable until it's fully finished.
    I'm not aware of any German translation in existance.
