Hello UTXMP developers and community,
I am new to UTXMP even though I do hang around in the BU forums from time to time. First, I would like to thank Free Monkey for reviving U2XMP in such high quality -- well done there! I somehow prefer it over Onslaught, since it has more items and more tactics.
I decided to have a go at a German translation (ucc dumpint
being a loyal friend), and I am far enough. Unfortunately, some of the strings are forced-English. An example is XMP.XMPHackTrigger. GetDescription is simply full of hardcoded English strings. A suggested fix:
// Declaration area, modify line 33 (Beta1a code):
var() localized string Description;
// Add (into new section delimited by '======='?)
var localized string HackingOwned, HackingStatusPre, HackingStatusPost;
// Modify GetDescription like so:
simulated function string GetDescription( Controller User )
local string Str;
if( bUsable )
if( Description != "" )
Str = Description $ ":";
if( User.GetTeamNum() == Team )
Str = Str @ HackingOwned;
Str = Str @ HackingStatusPre @ GetTeamProgress(User) * 100.0 $ HackingStatusPost;
// Add to DefaultProperties:
(Even though the box says it, it ain't PHP code. But colour-coding makes it more readable, doesn't it?)
Another problem are the HUD image file strings (e.g. Player Score), since they can't be translated without more playing around. I opt for a conversion of these characters into a font and writing out the HUD strings manually.
I might add to this thread later on.
Keep up the good work!
