There are still some Polish untranslated lines . Mainly English though .


Lockie, you got me back into Legion 2 with this line but I guess I have a different concept of mainly. I haven't found any English yet. The guy with the picture, Spike, Jack, Tony, and all the civilians I've found in Napul (airport town) and the town across the river to the SE speak (actual Polish. Overall its sort of fun to blunder about but since I have no idea where to search it does feel like I'm aimlessly wondering. I can see different factions but for the most part it doesn't matter since they don't fight each other and they all want to kill me on sight.

It doesn't help that it feels, to me at least, that they have messed with the balance. I took a team of 5 IMPs and ran until I got to the guard post (stopped at camp) then went and fought a couple of times around Napol. We've killed maybe 100-150 of them. Yet everyone we meet is wearing Spectra, treated Spectra, or coated Spectra. Pistols, low end SMGs, and just starting to see a few SKS and Winchester rifles but they all have top end armor? Add in the fact that my level 3 (now) IMP with lockpicking can't actually pick any locks. I feel like the reward part of the cycle isn't present since I can't really do, or even find, quests and I am not getting any real satisfaction from the loot since I'm either leaving it behind, have already topped out on armor, and don't need the tons of low end guns.

Its a great mod but I guess RR spoiled me to wanting to be able to at least sometimes piece together a story. Or maybe just have a geographic goal to head towards at least.

Is there?

I'm not trying to be smart but last year there was some talk about an English version. At that point English just seemed to meant hat the items and menus were now in English. With the new version I figured that there might be English translations but even with the newest download and the selection of English in the installer I seem to have no English in the game.

Since you say there is English I'll poke around again but right now I seem to have the same situation as last year.

You should be allying with one or more of these factions ( depends which one you pick), and did you go to the 'camp' and receive the girl's picture and part of map ?

It reads as if you haven't installed properly , maybe ?

Ok.

Installed JA2 Gold from disk
installed v1.13 newest 1 click installer
downloaded the latest Legions 2 and installed it.

In my JA2 folder I have 3 "data" folders - Data, Data-1.13, and Data-Legion2. Inside the Data-Legion2 folder is a Languages folder is an EN folder containing .edt files (I haven't opened them but I am willing to accept that they contain English). Using the Legion2 launcher I have the language set as English. No English. Similarly, if I directly start the JA2L2_EN application I get no English.

The JA2L2 launcher says that I am correctly using the EN profile. The normal JA2 Ini Editor does not recognize that Legion2 exists although I really haven't poked around using it at this point.

All english in Legion 2 - it is my work. Not much, translated EDTs only for BinaryData, Legion_data, MercEdt folders.

The main plot and help for user is in NPCData folder. I have no time for it )

if someone want to help, just say to me. I could make rough (but you could understand it right) english translation, and someone must retype it with more natural english.

Lockie, this doesn't seem to square with what you are saying. Perhaps I am not reading correctly but it sounds like Inshy says that I should not expect to see English when I talk to NPC's.

Inshy, I wish I could help and there is a chance I will be able to do some in a couple of weeks (I have some time off in the beginning of Oct). Thank you for your work so far.

Lockie, do you see English text when you talk to the guy in the Camp who gives you the picture? Not just an English name, or English words on the buttons in the dialog box but recognizable English when he responds? I'm glad there is an "English exe" which is terrific - English menus, item names and descriptions, and English on the laptop are very important. I applaud the effort but there is a difference between having an English exe and having in game info be in English.

I can get the picture alright since it consists of just hitting the friendly button a couple of times and clicking through some Polish text. However I do not get any map nor can I get any usable information about where I would go to chose a side. Since you seem to know what is going on would you like to provide a brief rundown?

I should copy them into a different folder (which one?) even though the launcher and the vfs ini file indicate that the game knows that I am playing with the English exe and that the path to the English language files is the same as the path on my disk?

I've done that. As I said upthread, I've installed the mod which includes the normal dragging of things to the data folder. The files are in the correct places and the various inis point to the correct paths to see the English language files. The only question seems to be whether or not there really is English language conversation from NPCs and I believe that the answer is no.

Stick with it ! It IS tough , but using grenades and burst fire to keep their heads down works , oh , and night fighting works better here too .
When you are firing at enemy , do not use single fire on individuals , always burst fire . ( Top tip )

Thanks for the advice Smile

I persevered. Killed about 10 guys and figured it was a waste to retreat and let some pretty cool items disappear, so i stuck with it killing the remaining ~30 enemies (stuns and tear gas were key), got some pretty ok rifles (was the main issue) and im back to invade the original sector you're dropped in (cleared the one north first).

All NPC chats are in polish, while the rest of the text is in english. Is this intended? Someone should at least use an auto translator so non polaks can at least having a vague idea whats going on :/

so how about using the searchengine to find an edt-editor (i loath statements that start 'someone should ...') and try it with something that small - of course if you use babblefish you have to sort it out afterwards (it should have some sense after all) - you neede just one program and some of your precious time and a lot of people would look up to you afterwards

I only said "someone should", because I dont know who is developing/translating this mod. I meant whoever has done a bang up job translating the rest of the game.

I didnt mean any offense. Jeez you need to take it easy.

To get a better understanding of the mods available, you can always check out the list here...

http://thepit.ja-galaxy-forum.com/index.php?t=msg&th=14663&prevloaded=1&&start=0

The short outlines featured tell you what language the mod is in, or if it has been translated. Going by other posts on here I'd guess translation was only partially completed on this one.

I wish the npc text was in English because I have no idea what is going on.

Also, with the integration of 1.13 the Ambushes are too strong with sometimes 128 enemies right off the bat even on the novice difficulty setting.

Think it depends on which faction you choose , there is a town with 2 gangs , you get to pick who you side with , has consequences through the game .

Well, Dieter and Inshy are pretty good with translations, don't know if they do Polish though, maybe someone can drum up some interest for a full translation?

I'd like to get a look at how much work translation will require. I don't speak polish, but I can use babblefish, and then make the result sound natural. Two questions.

1) Where do I find the edt files that control NPC speech?
2) I did a web search for edt editors, but found alot of trash. Are edt files just XML of some sort? Could I just edit them in Visual studio? If not, can someone recommend a edt editor in english for me?

Perhaps I spoke too soon. I am having trouble running Legion 2 on my Windows 7 computer.

When I try to run the english executable I get an error.

Here is the error:
http://thumbnails54.imagebam.com/14874/d6bfe2148734372.jpg

When I try to run any other executable, I get a splash screen (saying Sir Tech-Canada), and then JA exits.

Is Legion 2 compatable with 1.13 build 4552 ?

I got the install file from this link:
http://www.legion.zone.zg.pl/doku.php/moje_modyfikacje/legion2_v113

Is there a new version?

I got it to work about 3 or 4 months back, but I don't remember what it is that I had to do.

Jazz has his own installer specifically for Legion 2. You might want to check his site out.

I got it working yesterday. Used SVN to export version 1208 from the v1.13 data repository.

I manually copied the Data-Legion2\VFS\vfs_config.Legion2_EN.ini to the base location and then fixed the ja2.ini file. Pretty sure the Starter.exe tool would do this but I just did it manually.

@tag, I'm thinking you did not setup the ja2.ini file or copy the vfs config file from the error. Again I suspect starter.exe will do that but I dont want to touch it now that I have things working.

All in all not to much work other than SVN export which failed halfway through. May have been easier to check out which would allow it to resume instead of start from scratch.

I also compiled my own copy of the exe from the repository so I could add my own changes as needed but the base one seemed to work ok.
