once again for everybody who is lurking more in this Forum instead of a german-speaking community (that is... yeah apparently dead anyway, unfortunately), i can annouce, that i have finished another translation project of one of the great works of this community
After "FreeSpace Port" and "The Destiny of Peace" this time my focus was on the translation of Silent Threat: Reborn!What is this Package translating?
• All missions have german text with, if available, english voice over.
• All movies have german subtitles.
• The Developer Notes
• Names of objects in the missions itself.
• Subsystems on ships and stations that are mission critical.What is different to the original files?
• The Developer Notes were integrated from the Freespace Wiki into the Technical Database of the game to translate them there. The mission and cutscene specific entries are only available if you finish the corresponding mission in the campaign.
• The Single Missions were bugfixed and enhanced to work properly. Also they use features that were mentioned in the Developer Notes, for example the Nebula Enviroment in "Cloak and Dagger".
• Every ship from cruiser class or bigger got an individual name.
• Weapons on ships in all missions were checked and fixed if neccessary.
• The Single Missions from the Freespace Port were deactivated, so that only the older ST:R missions are available in the tech room.What is needed for this?
• FSO 3.8.0
• MediaVPs 2014
• wxlauncher 0.12.0 RC2
(Recommended)All Files are also part of my FreeSpace 2 Installer (Pre-Alpha).
• FreeSpace Port 3.5 with FSPort MediaVPs 2014
• My FreeSpace Port German Translation in Version 1.0.2This modifications is also part of my FreeSpace Port Installer (1.0.2).
• Silent Threat: Reborn 1.4Download
You can download my Silent Threat: Reborn Installer
(2.04 GB) that does not only include Silent Threat: Reborn and this translation in Version 1.0, but includes also a predefined wxLauncher-Profile that houses all needed flags and settings to start the modification right away after the Hardware configuration.
But for manual installation or update purposes, you can still download the translation itself:Silent Threat: Reborn (German) (1.0)
Optional - The Movies with subtitles.Silent Threat: Reborn German Subtitled Movies in 480p
(129 MB)Silent Threat: Reborn German Subtitled Movies in 720p
(298 MB)Silent Threat: Reborn German Subtitled Movies in 1080p
Of course you do not have to download the english speaking movies from the original mod if you want to use the german ones. Also you need only to download the resolution you want to use.
They were reencoded for the subtitles with a CRF13.5 Very Slow setting, that means, that it is unlikely to see a loss in picture quality, even there are a little bigger.Installation
You have to extract the downloaded archives into the Freespace2-Folder. If you using the wxlauncher, you have to load "FreiRaum: Stille Bedrohung: Wiedergeboren" as the active mod. If you use another launcher, that uses folder names, you have to load "FreiRaum_fsport-str" instead.
If you use the profile from the installer, you have only to select the "Silent Threat: Reborn (Deutsch)"-Profile in the wxlauncher and you can start the mod right away after you finished the hardware configuration.
If you use a new pilot, the right campaign is already selected, otherwise select "Stille Bedrohung: Wiedergeboren" in the campaign room.Interesting linksGerman Release ThreadDevelopmentthread for my German TranslationsPage on ModDBSome impressions
