Re: Installing french voices and texts for Freespace Port
Hmm.  Well, I have the German translation, but not the French translation.  Anyone have the French version of FS1?

Re: Installing french voices and texts for Freespace Port
Well, working on modifying the existing french version would be useless : in the french version, translaters forgave something vital. They just put accent like é, è, à, â, ô... but when there was an accent, the game showed a blank... well, here's an example of what I'm saying for the sentence "Follow your instructions to the letter"
In French, it must done : Suivez vos instructions à la lettre
But in fact, the game translated it by : Suivez vos instructions  la lettre

So, if we take the existing traduction and modify it, we must modify too the texts.... A lot of work to get the same result.

Re: Installing french voices and texts for Freespace Port
Except that the reason why these letters don't show up is because the font doesn't support them. That's something that should be fixed.

Point. I should post a request about that. Where does it belong, SCP ?

Re: Installing french voices and texts for Freespace Port
If the FS1 translation contained accented letters, then the FS1 translation should have come with its own font.  We can simply include that font in the French modpack for FSPort.

Unless the same font was used for all versions.  Potterman28wxcv, do you have the French version of FS1?

(Je ne parle pas français, donc je vais écrire en anglais. Vous pouvez utiliser Google Translate ou un service similaire si vous en avez besoin.)

I already have everything from the French version of FS1. I just need to fix the bug described in Mantis 3049 first.

Do you also have the French version of Silent Threat?

Re: Installing french voices and texts for Freespace Port
I think no french silent treat version has been released. The battle pack contained french FS1, but only english Silent Threat.

That might be why I didn't play it back in the days.

Silent Threat actually was released in French, and that translation is currently in FSPort.
