This tool is intended to ease the task of translating the Monkey Island SE.
-Monkey Island SE (got mine from Steam)
-Java 1.5+ (latest Java 6 recommended)
-copy the following 3 files to a new directory:
-- "misetran.jar" (download link at the end of this post)
-- "speech.info" from "C:\Program files\Steam\steamapps\common\the secret of monkey island special edition\audio" or similar
-- "uiText.info" from "C:\Program files\Steam\steamapps\common\the secret of monkey island special edition\localization" or similar
-run the following command:
java -jar misetran.jar speech.info uiText.info
(add paths where necessary)
-all changes are saved immediately, so you can close the tool at any time
-to test your (partial) translation copy the 2 files back overwriting the ones in the MI-SE subdirectories (always keep backups!!!) and play the game with the first non-English language selected
the translator keeps the English text, stores your translation in place of the first non-English language and uses the other languages to store it's data
You can copy your translation over any language of an existing speech.info or uiText.info using the following command:
java -cp misetran.jar Copy inFile outFile inLang outLang type
inFile: the file to copy a translation from
outFile: the file to copy a translation to
inLang: number of the language to copy from the source file (0 = english, 1-4 = the 4 translations [1 = your translation])
outLang: number of the language to overwrite in the target file (0 = English, 1-4 = the 4 translations]) [not sure if overwriting English is a good idea]
type: "speech" or "uitext" (if this is wrong the target file will be corrupted. keep backups)
this tool is released for free, but also AS IS. the translator has only been tested roughly. the copy tool is untested.
Please post feedback, questions, bug reports and so on in this thread.
