PC/3DO subtitles selection mod
« on: January 29, 2006, 04:42:47 pm »

This mod adds a command line option to choose the subtitles version:
--subs (pc/3do)
default is 3DO. In this case, the game is exactly as before. With PC setting, the game uses the PC text (source is http://www.sa-matra.net/quotes/index.html)

The download includes the compiled win exe, the modified source files and the modified content files as addon package.

Voice overs work only for the original text; pieces of text I added have no speech at all.
Even in those cases where the PC text is identical to the 3DO version except for a few new lines added, it's not possible to use the speech file to match the part of text corresponding to it, so the whole piece has no speech.

Other than that, I tried to keep the use of speech were possible. There are many cases (especially for Zelnick's quotes) were the differences are just a few words that don't change the meaning of the phrase. In these cases I didn't add the original version. In particular, almost all of the Yehat quotes had several "BRAAK", "HOOT", "YEEP" etc in them.
