as i already announced in the FSPort Mission Upgrade Pack
thread i have finished my second Freespace Mod translation into german. This time it is the FreeSpace Port.
This thread is more an information for everybody who can speak german and maybe would like to experience the game with german text, but do not visit a german speaking community anymore because that is.. yeah, quite dead, unfortunately.
Of course i know, that the Freespace Port offer a german language pack that is based upon the official german retail release of FreeSpace: The Great War. But in my opinion the translation of the game was never really good. So i retranslated this game from scratch and ignored the previous translation completely. With this Package you will have a FreeSpace Port with english voice over and german text. Because i did not pay attention for the retail-compatibility i translated also all the single missions that are available through the tech room, even most of them are not very good by today standards.What is this Package translating?
- 89 missions, that have german text to, if available, english voice over.
- The complete technical database in german.
- All cutscenes with english voice over and german subtitles.What is different to the original files?
- This package includes everything from the Mission Upgrade Pack
, look for details there.
- Some objects in the missions now have a german name.
- Especially in Act 2 of "The Great War" the text is different from the speech in terms of system names, because i tried to fix some chronology errors this way.
- A custom mv_root-lcl.tbm and mv_root-shp.tbm from the FS2-MVPs to fix some errors, that are caused if you use the string id system.What is needed for this?
(even it should also work with much older builds)MediaVPs 2014All Files are also part of my FreeSpace 2 Installer.
andFreeSpace Port 3.5 with FSPort MediaVPs 2014
of course.This is also part of my FreeSpace Port Installer.Download
You can download my FreeSpace Port Installer
(4.63 GB) that does not only include the FreeSpace Port and this translation in Version 1.0.1, but also a predefined wxLauncher-Profile that houses all needed flags to start the modification right away after the Hardware configuration.
But for manual installation or update purposes, you can still download the translation itself:FreeSpace Port (German)
Optional - The Movies with subtitles:FreeSpace Port German Subtitled Movies in 480p
(570 MB)FreeSpace Port German Subtitles Movies in 720p
(828 MB)FreeSpace Port German Subtitled Movies in 1080p
The movie packages includes the community remastered Ancients and Ending Sequences in the desired resolution as well the other movies, that are not upgraded in 480p. For the Retail movies i used the German DVD edition of "FreeSpace: The Great War" as source, which had a higher resolution and so better picture quality than any of the CD or even digital releases of this game. So these videos should look better than the movies that are available in the english ogg package.
Also this package includes the extended Ancients4 sequence with the Destruction of Vasuda Prime as an additional and so deactivatable file.Installation
You have to extract the downloaded archives into the Freespace2-Folder. If you using the wxlauncher, you have to load "FreiRaum: FreeSpace Port" as the active mod. If you use another launcher, that uses folder names, you have to load "FreiRaum_fsport" instead.
If you want to use the standard Ancients 4 sequence, you have to delete the "FreiRaum_fsport_Filme_<Resolution> Xtra.vp" after installation.Interesting linksGerman Release ThreadDevelopmentthread for my German TranslationsPage on ModDBSome impressions
