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.

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?

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.

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.

I don't.

If they had to pay for voice actors it might not be a very good experience for them (as they'd likely end up losing money), and I'd rather see them do more mods in the future rather than have VA in Shady Job.

OK, guys and girls.
Here is feed back from Russia.

We've read all your posts and make a decision.
As a X-mas gift you'll get a text version of english Shady Job for free;
those of you, who're interested in characters 'images' will be able to download russian speech for free (the same time frame);
and, finally, those of you who'll decide that this work does cost some money, and guys, who did it, did earn some wage for their work and expensies, will be able to download english speech version and (as a bonuce) some intro movies (really nice made) for small fee of 5 Euro.
It'll be possible to make your payment using very friendly billing system using any world-wide accepted cards. (Such as Visa, MasterCard, CyrusMaestro, AmEx, etc). The publication date is the same. So you'll be able to spend all your X-mas vacation enjoying a full version of English Shady Job.

Discussion is closed. Wait for a news pretty soon.

Excellent! Perfect! I'm afraid I'm not in the position to buy anything through the Internet so all the better for me. Otherwise I probably would give that 5 euros away. If I only could, but no... but I'll do perfectly fine with russian speech.

I'm afraid internet shooping is out of the question for me too. But maybe a cash transfer could be arranged ? I'm thinking Western Union so if any other fellows might like the idea maybe we could buy the full English version that way. Untill then I'm just waiting for the first version to come out. Smile

Okay, Christmas has came and gone... but Shady Job still hasn't came. So... will we get it before new year? Dammit, I asked the same question last year, in this same thread and they promised to have it before new year... well, a year has passed, but still don't have it.

So... please, don't pull a Lupus, which means giving up on it and disappearing without notion.
