MBAC Translation Progress

Unread postby Ryuusoul » August 26th, 2007, 4:25 am

For those curious, I finished completely translating MBAC on 20 August. We still have a whole lot of pictures to edit, since a lot of the random text you see in the game are actually in the form of picture files (over 1400 of them), so that may take a while.

We're considering just releasing a text-only release of a patch, which would have all the non-graphics text translated while we wait to get everything else done.

Outstanding, I'm looking forward to it.

For that text patch idea, it would be just the translations in a txt file? Or will it actually display in game. If the 2nd option is the case, then could you clarify which texts are picture format and which are text text?

It will show in the game. All the arcade mode text and win quote text will be in English. Everything else is pretty much picture files.

I see. I'm fairly certain most people would be happy with a text patch, so please let us know if you guys decide to pursue that option.

As long as it would not detract from the project as a whole, I certainly wouldn't mind a text only patch. And I'm pretty sure I'm not alone on this. :)

If it would actually cause problems for the whole project, then I would rather wait.

Sounds great! Certainly looking forward to it!

And as previously stated, a text patch til it's completely finished wouldn't be bad at all.

A text patch only for now is good enough. With the graphic editing it'll probably take 1 or 2 more months, and the most important part of the translation, that being the story will be in english anyway. We can wait few months for menu translations. :P

On another topic, I take it this means the ex3 format has been cracked too? Any possibility to obtain the tools that extract the contents of .p and convert the ex3 images into bmp?

Edit: It's great to be ignored. I guess this means the tools are some sort of a thing for the elites. Oh well. :\

The images are bitches, so I just need to slap them around a bit and they should fall in place eventually.

lulz at the task of editing the movelists in Training Mode and over a hundred team names. Man, that's gotta be a pain.

We never promised a text-only patch. We release when we think it's ready for release, please be patient.
