7h3 Ur-Qu4n M4573r5 - UQM in leet..
« on: May 22, 2008, 10:55:37 pm »

So I checked out the Slovak translation of UQM today, and thought that all the interesting non-standard characters were funny. Then suddenly, WILD IDEA APPEARED!

The result?





Useless? Yes. Awesome? Maybe...

Want to practice your 1337 skills? Get 7h3 Ur-Qu4n M4573r5 here!
(It's only got the dialogues 'translated' yet, and I don't think this project is interesting enough to warrant a complete interface redesign like the Slovak translation team did)..

Incredible...how did you translate all of the dialogue so fast?

Forgive me if I'm not as super excited as you. Next up: Pig Latin.

Oh, you could automate all that.  It's more or less just a cypher, after all.  It might even be quicker to build a custom English-to-leet translator and just tell it to ignore any line that started with # than it would be to feed all the dialog files through one of the existing ones, and then go back and change all the titles back.

Eep, did I say that?

Ah, naturally. That makes sense.

7h@7 !5 p377y 1337.

It was pretty entertaining trying to read it and listen at the same time. Good work.

Yep.  Um...

Code:
<?php
$filestoread 
= array("filepath/arilou.txt","filepath/chmmr.txt","filepath/etc.txt");
foreach(
$filestoread as $thisfile){
$openfile fopen($thisfile"r");
$foo fread($openfilefilesize($thisfile));
$bar explode("\n",$foo);

foreach($bar as $wibble){
if(substr($wibble,0,1) != "#"){
$wibble str_ireplace("regular letters","leet letters",$wibble);
$wibble str_replace("other regular letters","other leet letters",$wibble);
//etc.
}
$output .= "\n" $wibble;
}
$output stripslashes($output);
fclose($openfile);

$openfile fopen($thisfile"w");
fwrite($openfile,$output);
fclose($openfile);
}
?>

So something like that, but in your language of choice.  And you can save a few lines if you want to just c&p the dialog into a textbox instead of having it open the files. (Since apparently the above means you have to open the files manually and delete that extra notepad-doesn't-know-what-it-is character it puts at the beginning of the file, anyway... what's that about?)

/too lazy to actually go look up all the leet replacements but you see how it works

Very nice. I wonder if anyone would be up for making a "real" l33t version, i.e not just running it through a leetifier but changing the entire sentence structure. That would be even more amusing, but of course also much more pointless.

Exactly what I was thinking, although are there enough leet expressions to keep all the dialogue interesting? Another exercise in pointlessness would be to use lolcat language.
