Title: For german fans
Post by: GDP_Spaceman on May 04, 2003, 08:36:22 pm
This post is for all, who interested on a german version of SC2.
I hope, my german text is no problem or break a Forum rule ;)

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Hallo,
Ich frag einfach mal in den Raum . . .
Ist jemand ein Projekt bekann, das sich eine deutsche version
zum Ziel gesetzt hat. Wenn ja, wo kann ich es finden?

Sollte es keines geben, wer wäre interessiert an einer Übersetzung
von Ur-Quan Masters?

Ich hab mich mal ein bisschen mit dem Source beschäftigt.
Das übersetzten ist problemlos zu machen. Allerdings sehr
aufwändig, deshalb alleine nicht zu bewältigen.
Um Stimmeffekte zu erziehlen hab ich den Mixer meiner
Soundblaster Live verwendet. Vielleicht kennt jemand noch
eine bessere Möglichkeit.
Der Text an sich sind einfache Text-Files. Diese können
mit jedem Texteditor bearbeitet werden.

Was den Quellcode betrifft, so hab ich es noch nicht geschaft
ihn zu compilieren. Wobei meiner meinung nach gut wäre
die Umlaute zu integrieren. Dazu wäre aber eine Änderung
im Programm nötig.

Würde mich freuen, wenn mir jemand weiterhelfen könnte ;)

CU, Spacy

I don't think that there is any specific rule about posting in English, but it has been the custom around here so far.

As for a German version of UQM, some have tried (http://uqm.stack.nl/cgi-bin/yabb/YaBB.pl?board=Techissues;action=display;num=1044398646;start=4#4), but I do not think it is completed yet.

Yeah, how goes the work on that GM? Gotten any further?

And GDPS, do you really intend to rerecord all the speech? That is a HUGE project (if I got it wrong, sorry, but my german is a bit rusty...)

That's true. It is a very big project.
And that's the reason why i'm searching for some guys who
can help me . . .
It's not possible to finish the complete translation alone  :(

I still say you should get in touch with GM (German_Nightmare), he's already started on this, so if you pool your resources it'll go faster

Hi well I thought I would just be an occasional lurker on this board and yet, here I am...

I would love to participate in such a project. I'm a student in languages and I'm currently living in Braunschweig although I don't know for how long. I'd be delighted to help out with the translation, perhaps with the voices too, who knows, hey that would be an honour (; I'm unfortunately not very knowledgeable in he field of programming so it would the kind of mutually beneficial alliance of minds anf might, the kind where I do exactly as YOU say, lol. Let me know if I can be of any help...

I send a request to sourceFORGE.net for a new Projekt. I hope
it goes online :)

Well, the project is more a part of UQM itself.

And it shouldn't be that hard to organize project elsewhere. Make a webpage, list what has been translated and what not. Work through emails, ask people for inform you and send the translated files to you. You update the webpage to avoid duplicate work.

Put the webpage url here, and if the project starts going well, maybe you can get it linked to UQM's links page/news or The Pages Now And Forever.

See? Just be a little more initiative :)
