See my edited comments above Lockie, it's still using the old screens, so if you run at a higher res you'll just have them taking up less room on screen. It's a bit like running an old cinema scope video on a non-widescreen TV, will just have black bars top and bottom. In this case black bars top and right, on some screens.

Inshy, the res mod is this one that's been around for a while for UB by Starchris, I only became aware of it last week.

http://kermi.pp.fi/JA_UB/Mods/Other/Multiple_Resolutions/

I think this maybe just messing things up gamewise, BUT if you can somehow source the English text used for such things as the IMP screen and the Personnel screen from this mod and use it on the current English translation of Shady Job it would be an improvement.

hehe. Who know Starchris? Or know his contacts?

When you use original EXE file what we have in SJ Mod - you have some russian text, because translation is not done.

When you use new res mod you lost all quests of SJ and story line actions.

Bugger, I knew it was too good to be true! :lostwings:

some interesting stuff there with that new res mod.

Was just reading up on Starchris here...

http://www.ja-galaxy-forum.com/board/ubbthreads.php?ubb=showflat&Number=292845#Post292845

It would be good to get those other Russian translation pages fixed if we can, the Russian IMP screen really threw me, and it is also difficult playing when combat warnings are in Russian (such as 'Danny hears a loud noise to the South West')

To me the opening emails are a bit confusing too, but I'm not sure how you could clarify them, maybe some of it has been lost in translation a bit.

Perhaps StarChris may be interested in getting some larger res for the Shady Job exe. :crossed: I still want to play this mod!

In this screen?

http://i1185.photobucket.com/albums/z360/_Hawkeye/Personnel.jpg

When playing the original install with English pack, the IMP generation pages were mostly in Russian, the personnel page as above is in Russian with Russian character types (well for the skills and attributes anyway) and when playing in game warnings such as 'Danny hears a loud sound from the North' are all in Russian. Are you getting different results, Lockie?

i did my best and now we have SJ English translation v.0.91 )))

It is HEX editing of EXE file, so sometimes we don't have free room for full english text\words.

Hey Inshy, thanks for the updates, my current saved games are working better with less Russian, though there is still some around. Probably the most annoying is when Training mercs, Train/Trainer/Student appear as Russian. Residing Russian is not a game breaker but you may be interested with those that appear below...

This one was strange below, my keyboard typed Russian text when saving my game, yet seem to be okay on my next game save?
http://i1185.photobucket.com/albums/z360/_Hawkeye/SCREEN_Save.gif


I also started a new game, just to check, but discovered when I went to add the GP97SL code to the IMP page, it typed the characters in Russian, and did not recognise the code, in effect making it impossible to create an IMP Merc.

Just change your keyboard layout like in Windows.

Most of text that you show me I already translate. Use v.0.94

And names of the maps was translated too (but only half of all sectors). It will be on English if you are didn't visited this sector yet. Or Start game again.

Thanks man, looking good. Still some minor Russian here and there, but a great improvement.

http://i1185.photobucket.com/albums/z360/_Hawkeye/SCREEN001.gif

Russian I do see still (as above) is when it's warning me I can't move the air drop on the current map, but not a biggie.

Great work inshy! I just wanted to post and tell you how grateful I am for your hard work. I have just reached the first city and haven't encountered any major issues. It seems after years of waiting I can finally enjoy this mod. I'll let you know if I encounter any game stopping bugs.

Once again, big thanks for your hard work.

Just some random pickings if you are interested, Inshy.

Mortuary page from AIM is still all in Russian. Mercs status while on map is still in Russian (shows their name in English but underneath is Russian.)

Game seems to be playing fine. Tough start though, I literally had to scrape into the airport and bleed toward supplies, looking for a medkit while fighting off the bad guys there!

Excellent.

By the way did you ever get any other voice actors or new English speech files apart from the ones I did for Grandee and other characters?

Maybe there are some other actors out there who can help. I may well be able to record another after I've played more. Take it as a swap if you are to help the team on Vengeance: Reloaded. Cool

Just a minor gripe if you are interested, I notice there is a location on the map called BUTNA, but it is spelt differently in emails as BATTNA. Also the recon report refers to it being on the SE coast, but on the map it looks to be on the SW coast. Would be good if this was corrected, and made more clear.

Hey Inshy, another minor couple again for you if you are interested.

Warning messages such as 'Merc hit in the arm and loses 10 points of Dexterity' is still in Russian.

The Recon report has a misspelling of Gus Tarballs.

http://i1185.photobucket.com/albums/z360/_Hawkeye/Buzz_nomedkit.gif

I don't know if you are interested in general bugs, but I had some items acting weird tonight. Namely the waistcoat attachment, on an earlier save, when I combined it with a ballistic vest the armour value actually lowered not increased. Also when attempting to combine another one later, I could only use it with a helmet, and it acted just like Compound 18 on that occasion.
