Uhhh... does this have anything to do with the Shady Job mod?

And Engel... if you see this... just tell us that you're still working on it or not, okay? I'm just getting tired of not getting news!

Two little patches for Shady Job:

http://forum.ja2.ru/Attach/zip/climbroof_ub102.rar

Allow enemies climb on roof and back.

http://forum.ja2.ru/Attach/zip/visible_ub102-1.rar

Enemies and your mercs see only forward.

Yes. I have. I can't believe why they tell us that they're gonna translate a mod and then give up on the project and don't give us a word!!

Yea, it is a bummer.

I all but finished the mod. The weapon and new mercs' pics were great, and they obviously put a lot of effort into the mod. However, I know absolutely no russian, and the rough translations here on this thread still left me stuck. I could't figure out how to get a key needed for the end game levels. So, I just moved on to another mod. I guess they would have the same frustration with games in English, and the game is not easy to translate.

Calm down man. I'm waiting for the translation too. Don't forget they're just fans like you. And they're doing it in free time I suppose. Real life is at first place.

But I have to agree. Once a month simple "we're working on it" will be enough for me.

OK guys. I`ve got two news: a good and a bad one. The good news: they are still working. And the bad one: they`ve no idea, when it`s done. But when it`s done you will be the first who will get it. Promissed Wink .

I like this mod. Using pistols at close combat, great sounds, great guns, using G11 for the first time Smile .

What is that great sniper rifle (cby-a?) using Dragunov ammo (bugged, becouse you can not unload ammo and reload the weapon)?. Quite scary stuff.

And those mobile rocket launchers, with godlike abillities. Jesus. I can only kill them with mortar shelling, becouse even lv.10 nigh ops merc can not get close enoug with law, not mentioning, that usualy you need three LAWs to put them to sleep.

Now I understand, why so much noise about translation of this mod. Perhaps is time to start learning russian?

Nice to know they're working on it. Smile

I'll check in monthly, but I wish they could at least give the people a word, to tell them, that they are STILL working. If they just keep quiet, then everybody goes away and they do a big job for nothing.

But thanks, barby_girl, for the info.

Yes, excellent. But I still am completely unable to understand the business with Lupus Tambovis. I thought they were nearly done? And this was supposed to be finished before new year LAST year. Whoops! 11 months gone by! Lupus really pulled a funny trick, yep, he did.

That's what we all'd like to know. Perhaps he died? His disapperance was so sudden and there was no warning.

Now translated more than 70% of characters (NPC, RPC, etc). Main problem - it`s realy hard to translate Russian idioms, humor and other features without loosing of meaning.

Also translated about 20% of item descriptions (which need it).

In such a way I hope you will receive a Christmas present from us. :secret:

Yes, I agree with Maks. Looks like you'll get English version of Shady Job by Christmas. So to say, a little X-mas present Wink.

But I do have a question for all of you. We are almost finished with a text part.
We also have an idea to make english speech for all new NPC (about 50 characters). So here is a question.
Would you like to have just text version as a final result, or would you like to have machinery made speech (the stuff I've done for WF6 englification), or would you like to have a REALY GOOD done english speech, made by professional actors?
In case of the third answer, yes, we do have ability to do it, but it will move the release day a little (maybe a month or something like this) and we will have some money to spend. So, is it all right with you, that in case of the third way, we'll charge you a little fee for a final product. Lets say, something about 5 Euros?

I would say that it would get a little difficult if you had to pay for it. I would do with Russian Speech & English Text. I would actually pretty much like it.

Thanks anyway, you've done a great job!

OK, How about having two versions.
The first one is a light one (just text). Could be downloaded for free.
The second one is a full (with actors speech). Could be also downloaded, but for fee.

Although I would happily pay for a mod I think you might run into some legal trouble if you tried to charge for one. I'd hate to see that happen to someone who's just doing it to help entice voice actors into his project.
Like Maddog, I'd be happy with just a text version. I like the storyline aspect of the game and find it irritating to have to babelfish my way through a mod. Having it subtitled would actually give it a unique flavor.

I wouldn't mind paying...but at the same time I'd rather pay for great support (patches etc.) rather than voice acting. VA is nice, but plain text is fine, too.

I say don't go for VA. You'll probably end up losing money for no good reason.

I would like it to be with no payment, because even though I don't mind paying, I am not sure if there is a way to pay from here in Japan.

Maybe the credit cards will do, but I'm concerned about security problem and wouldn't like to pay with cards.

The two-option proposal (either you pay and get VA, or you don't pay and get noVA) seems fair enough.
