Chrono Cross - German Translation Project
« on: March 27, 2019, 08:03:21 am »
Hey guys!

I'm working on a German translation of Chrono Cross right now, using the translation tools by Terminus Traduction. I've already translated a fair bit of the graphics and managed to re-insert them but I have a lot of questions and some problems I wasn't able solve yet.

So I'm wondering if there's anyone who's familiar with these tools and who would like to help me out if I have any questions - because I'll have quite a lot and I don't want to use a thread for every single question or problem I have, haha!

I thank you very much in advance!

As a little thing to show: I just finished translating parts of the battle screen today.  :)



Cheers,
Shokupanda

Hello Shokupanda, this is awesome! I love translation projects.

I've played a little with Terminus Traduction myself but unfortunately found it too confusing. However, I'm sure there's someone around here who knows how to work it well. And perhaps I can open it up again and try learning something along with you.

Hey!

I am quite surprised there isn't a German translation already out there! Regardless, just popped by to offer encouragement.

Welcome! I played around with the TT tools last year and mostly got the hang of them. I can probably answer questions you have.

Hi guys,
I was wondering if you could help me edit a small thing with the Chronocross Translation Tools
I want to change the "Master Hammer" and "10,000G"  for another Item and make it worth 30,000
We already manage to change the script so it cost 30k but can't figure how to change the text :(
I found the text is in CD1 \ 40_Textes_Avant \ ScriptC_CD1.txt

|HEY!!!
|You're an adventurer, right!?
|Well, you're in luck!\NE\
|I'll sell you my handcrafted
|\'"\Master Hammer\"'\ for only
|10,000G! Cheap, eh!?\Ptr\

I tried using TT but can't figure how to make it work properly (See image)

If you have any tips let us know ! :) Thx!

I've never used the translation tool before, but I am reading its source code.

It looks like the command "Dump_Txt" requires one argument, a filename. The description in French in the code is
Quote
Extraction des textes d'un fichier; fish: dossier | fichier de textes (sans extension pour dossier)

In English:
Quote
Extract text from a file. Argument is a folder or a text file (filename without extension means folder)

So an example command would be
Code: [Select]
Txt_Dump myFile.dat or
Code: [Select]
Txt_Dump myFolder
I'm not sure quite what you're supposed to specify as a file. Hope you can figure that out.

If you understand C, you can read the source code in the 01_Programmes folder­. Txt_Dump code is in Textes.cpp.
