The Touphscript formatted text for ff7.exe is already available in German and Spanish.

There may also be a problem entering the key configuration screen.
Someone reported that, when using the English .exe on the German game, there was a crash when entering the key configuration menu.

Does this crash exist on the other games?

OK, so I think I have it all ready now.  With Pitbrat's help and ff7.text files, I should have spanish, french and german up in no time.  Italian does not work with ts so I hear so this may take longer to decode their exe translation. Then again that is a project unto itself and doesn't it use spanish 1.03?  Which would be compatible with my mods anyway.

So next, installer.

I need someone to translate the English.  I have used google translate for now.  Much obliged if people would clear this up.  I will also need someone to translate the readme into these languages too.  The installer is 95% done, just need Luksy's input now with touphscript, and the french/italian ff7 exe text.

My german isn't what it used to be ( and I'm german native, oh the irony ) but here we go
I modified it a little to be more 'formal' and informative. Because I automatically assume most germans have NFI what they are doing with a PC.

Cheers.

Now Pitbrat, I need your input.  I don't understand what is going on here.

The German ff7.txt file for example.
Some of the texts go way outside of what is permitted space wise.  Is this because the german 1.02 has extra space?  Or because someone has made these ff7.txt files manually?  How has touphscript decoded soemthing it doesnt support?

I need German, French, Italian and Spanish exes (spanish 1.02)

edit:  this german one doesnt conform to the original german 1.02 exe text that is for sure.  And these text files simply cannot ever work.... some of the text is way too long.  Who has done this? touphscript will just chop off words when they go over.  Surely whoever made these realised that?

edit:

I need to speak with the person who did these...  For sure.

That's for pitbrat when he returns.  I need to know who made these ff7 text files... and I need people who want their language supported to run through their exe text and verify it line for line.

Those translations are courtesy of Ugerstl.
He probably did the German translation of ff7.exe.
Google translate often produces whacky results.
Any sentient input is appreciated!

The Spanish one may be ok (although the items for chocobo races are untouched?).  The german one needs a look at by someone.  At the moment it just isn't going to work, not least because the text is too long for some lines (see ts log) and also the name input screen tries to use german letters (and is probably all messed up).

I will not update the exes until someone competent in each language has done what I need.  So if people want their game converting they are going to have to do some work to help us.  I also need the original 1.02 for French, Spanish (Spanish 1.02 and 1.03), Italian and German.

 ;D  If you ever get the time, I have a german file here, all the exe text.  I'd appreciate it if someone could run through the text.  But if you cant be arsed I understand. Ideally people who whinge about not having foreign support should be helping.

If, at that point in time, nobody has done it after I finish my own hardcore mod, I'll go through it, but that's not gonna be this month.

Game converter will support foreign games when someone who cares enough and understands the language they want to convert, helps me with the ff7 text.  Until then the converter will be released as is, and although it will convert the game, the text in ff7.exe will not be translated.  So far Spanish will be, but that is all.

Hi !  :)

I'm french with a french version of the game, may i can help you to create the french part of your Game Converter (but i'm less than a newbie in programming, is it a problem ?)

My game is an old clean version, without any mod yet.

That isn't a problem at all.  What you need to do is convert all the English entries line by line to the french equivalents. Some of these may prove difficult.  You should do as much as you can.  You will probably need the game open as well.

Download this file >
http://dl.dropbox.com/u/36889302/FF7/0_ff7.exe.txt

and get cracking.  You may also need to look at this, as it will help you with the various areas the text appears in:
http://goo.gl/0qk11
See the blue text titles on the right side.  It will show you where to look.

Do not make a mistake with the lines.  Do not delete lines or accidentally move them. Make sure the text corresponds exactly to the French equivalent.  Try not to make ANY typo's or mistakes.  Check through each entry 4 times from beginning to end when you have finished.

The above information applies to people who want the German game as well.  Spanish and Italian may already be done.

Is there a way to get the text out of the German exe file? Ordering them should no problem.

I do own the German version and I'm a native speaker but I do not have savegames left that are far into the game so it's hard to get to alle the places in game for me.

The only thing you can do is open the exe with a hex editor (I use hex editor neo) and look for the text.  Small letters become large.  For example, when searching for Cloud you would look for LOUD (miss the first letter).  You can also play the game for a lot of them.

If you are willing to do this for the entire exe and place the text properly (download the file above), let me know.

Unfortunately yes...  the foreign games will have to work with the english alphabet for the NAMES of characters.  This probably won't be THAT big an issue though?
