Hi folks,

i do so much research about the current and newest german version. All i found was the ver. 7435 and its about 4 years old.
On depris mod thread i found a german exe with ver. 8601. But there are some downloads and builds from 8.x but no 8601.
Can anyone help me? I tried some other builds of 8.x with the german exe but no chance..

I rlly want to play with a newer version and in german.. because of the retro charm of my childhood.

If nothing helps.. is it difficult to make my own exe? i read some stuff in the forum about translation etc. how long will that take to translate?
I have some skills in coding and in the past i made a translation for the star wars rebellion mod from tabletop simulator.

But the easier way will be a download for the german 8601 exe.

Download sources from https://ja2svn.mooo.com/source/ja2/trunk/GameSource/ja2_v1.13
Open project in vs 2010, 2013 or 2017.
Change Ja2 project from debug to release.
Open Language Defines.h
Change from ENGLISH to GERMAN
Compile.
Have fun.

As for missing translations in exe, open Utils\_GermanText.cpp, find all "TODO" lines, translate, compile, send the patch to me or someone who can commit it.
Also download German gamedir from https://ja2svn.mooo.com/source/ja2/trunk/GameData/German_Version/
Search for all language xml files that look like GERMAN.*.xml in TableData folder, translate (open files in UTF-8 unicode).

To play with German, you should do the following:
Install clean German Ja2.
Install 1.13 gamedir from the trunk: https://ja2svn.mooo.com/source/ja2_v1.13_data/GameDir
Install German 1.13 gamedir from svn.
Add German exe compiled from actual trunk.
Have fun.

Voices of mercs added after JA2 may still be in english, try subtitles on for those.

Hey Guys,

I wanted to try a new run yesterday and got some problems.
My "working" version seems quite old but has a lot of mods already installed. I started it with "JA2_4870_patch.exe" on Win 10 64 without problems.

Then I downloaded the new SCI from here but when I klick the Launch button in the ini editor, nothing seems to happen. I can't remember what I did years ago in order to get my "old" version running, maybe you guys point me in the right direction. I remember not compiling anything. My voices are German. When I'm lost, I'll stick to my working version but actually a lot of cool stuff god added in the meantime ...

Edit: When I copy over the 4870-exe the game wants to start but fails with "Could not create video surface from file: German\splash_german.sti"

Kind regards

After some reading I tried it this way:
- used my working installation and copied the entire folder
- unzipped the latest SCI files over that files
- downloaded and copied JA2_8601_German.exe

Doesen't work with ja2.exe and german.exe, same error, splash_german.sti missing.

I have no idea what I'm doing and no idea how to get this up and running, too.

Kind regards

Compiling stuff with VS2019 leads to H:\JA2 DEV not found. Where to change that output directory?

God I can't remember that I had to do this the last time

Alright, got it running (takes some time to load but runs) - German Voices, English Text and German / German

- took my working directory
- copied everything from SCI over and replaced my files
- downloaded https://ja2svn.mooo.com/source/ja2/trunk/GameData/German_Version/
- copied all that to my directory, replace stuff

Now you can run the game with JA2 exe - then the text is ENG but Voice is German.

- Took JA2_8601_German.exe and placed it in the dir
- used the ini editor to select this exe, run with WQHD resolution, bam works (DE / DE)

Additional: Note to self: Make a backup of this running config to save time when you try this again in 5 years ;-)

Kind regards

To change the exe version to German you'll have to change the language in Language Defines.h.

default:
#define ENGLISH
//#define GERMAN
change to:
//#define ENGLISH
#define GERMAN

Hi Silversurfer,
thanks for the reply! Tried that but couldn't build an exe because the output path is wrong, my VS knowledge doesn't allow me to fix that. So I guess the downloaded exe just has that because when I start with this exe, everything is German

You can download actual trunk exe in German from my google drive, link in the sig.

There's also experimental German 7609 modpack with improved AI and other things, if you are interested. German 7609 is known to crash in IMP creation screen, apart from that it should work well.

Hey There,

first i wanna thanks DerHutmacher, for starting this Thread.
So I wanna mention that I'm new to the Forum.
And currently at the same stuggle and looking for ht newest German Version.

Didn't check what's with 1.13 for a while and it's literally blowing my Mind how much has happen since i've have paid a Visit - damn you Guys are just AWESOME.
Keep the great Work, love, creativity and passion You put into up!

So first Question, wouldn't it be easier for someone like me, who's not really into coding (and such), just to rename "all language xml files" in TableData folder?

Anyways still trying to figure out, how "VisualStudio" works, just downloaded the Version from 2017 and stuck at the Compile.

Quote:
Download sources from "i cannot use links until i have posted more than 5 messages"
Open project in vs 2010, 2013 or 2017.
Change Ja2 project from debug to release.
Open Language Defines.h
Change from ENGLISH to GERMAN
Compile.
Have fun.
<<< Isn't that easy as it sound as sevenfm mentioned at least for me.
Was it maybe a bad idea to go with VS 2017, as far as it seems i missed to install some Features?

This guide is old but still works. It will help you set up your project to compile your own exe.
