Cool Guy

The first test version my translation tool is now available.

It is tested with Java 6 SE on Windows XP. Might work on Java 5.0 as well. Other operation system should be no problem, as long as Swing is available.

You can pass the speech.info file as a parameter:
java -jar misetran.jar x:\path\speech.info
If you don't, a file chooser will pop up when you start the tool.

When a speech.info file is opened for the first time the tool replaces the first non-English language with English, so that lines that are not yet translated are in English. The other 3 translations in the speech.info file are used for data storage. (I will later add a tool to combine up to 4 such files into one, which will then include the 4 translations and no other data from the tool). So you have to select the first non-English language (French) in MI SE to see your translation.

In the GUI you have the main table showing all lines. You can edit the cells in the translation column. Changes are saved to the file directly. You can also change the "translated?" checkbox. You can set it to true to keep the English text (e.g. for "Oh" or "Grrrr"). You can also uncheck it, removing your translation (has to be accepted in a dialog).
The table can be sorted by any column. You can also resize columns and do anything else a basic jTable supports.

Above the table is a text field that allows filtering the table by the content of the "English" column.

The table below the main table shows all lines similar to the selected one. It allows for quick translating of equal and similar lines.

Please test the tool for "real world" usability (I'm not a game translator myself).
Any feedback is welcome and will encourage further development. (I already got some features planned...)

I've already done that... I hated the new translation.
You can find the patch in the italian miforum.
It's just 1.0 for now, but at least no more "orzata" and "possente pirata"

koun, your tool is great. You could add to it some searching functions. However, it's not the final answer to problem, because when you put classic files, game reads text from them, and you still don't hear dubbing.

BTW, the renaming batchfile by koun is not entirely using the filenames as listed in the mojo soundtrack review:

http://www.mixnmojo.com/features/rea...somisoundtrack

There are 22 files, that seems to be correct. Howver, I'm clueless about the bonus tracks, especially 'Bonus Track: Xxxxxx Xxxxxxx Xxxx Xxxxx (Xxxx Xxxxx)'

Hi!

I wanted to ask Irishmile how his progress of changing all the guybrush-sprites is proceeding?
I love your version of Guybrush! The hair you made for him is so much closer to the old original than the ugly version from the remake...
I've changed the forst file in the arts-folder (costumes_ao-dxt) and the improvement is incredible.

I was so shocked when I first saw their new version of Guybrush with this silly hairs.
Didn't expect to see some guys fixing this so fast.
Now I hope you didn't stop changing all the sprites.

I'm not done with all things I want to implement, but I think I have accumulated some changes big enough to release the 2nd test version of my MI-SE translation tool: http://www.load.to/46hZcrSeKB/misetran.jar

the update includes:
  • options for search and 2nd table (full or partial match, case sensitivity, ...)
  • ability to select multiple lines in main table and mark them as translated
  • ability to select multiple lines in 2nd table and copy the translation form the selected line of the main table into them
  • column widths are optimized on start up
  • empty lines are no longer shown (empty English text)

when you try the tool please let me know the following:
  • does it work at all? (what is your OS and Java version?)
  • how is the start-up time? [when using an already adapted speech.info]
  • how is the performance, do any actions hang or work slowly? (what are your CPU and other hardware specs?)
  • how good do you consider the usability? would you prefer any design changes?
  • what are your feature request for this tool or additional related tools?

upcoming features are: support for uiText.info, some statistics, clean-up for the release of the source code, some mini-tools to e.g. copy languages around so you can start with an other one than English as your basis (for improvements on existing translations or maybe for "fun"-translations...).
Having written this I notice I don't have any to-dos for the GUI itself, so please let me know if you have any ideas. Feedback from actual translators would be very helpful for me, as well as encouraging.

Since Irishmile didn't answer I started to complete changing all the guybrush sprites with the new hair that Irishmile made.

So far I have completed the following folders:
1_guybrush_skin
35_climbing
36_sliding

This includes Guybrush walking and still-standing in every direction, Guybrush climbing ladders and Guybrush swinging along the cable with the rubber chicken in both directions.

Works in-game just perfectly!

But there are a lot of sprites left^^
I'll upload all the finished dxt-files when everything is done (which will possibly take only a few days).

EDIT
just finished the folders
38_wet_guy
43_digging
44_guy_fighting

Everything tested - works fine!

Godbless you Riot23.... I do not have the time or the internet access to finish it anyway...... I appreciate you taking it up and fully support you.... let me know if there is a way I can help and I will try if time permits.

No problem!
Biggest thx belongs to you for creating the "new" hair!
And of course to all those who managed to unpack the monkey1.pak and providing their programms to let us do the same.

Without you all I couldn't do anything!

When I encounter some sprites where I am not able to fit on your existing hair (because it's a different angle or somehting like that) I'll let you know. Maybe you can make the hair for those.
But so far I could make it^^

btw
If uploaded all files I've changed so far here:
http://www.file-upload.net/download-...iot23.rar.html

Simpley put the rar-file in the main game folder and unpack.
It should overwrite the dxt-files automatically because I've put the appropriate folder topology in the rar-file.

So you can at least see and test what you created!

For now it's walking, standing, talking, fighting, digging, sliding the cable, climbing ladders and throwing the poisended meat to the dogs.

take at least half credit. I.E. it should read by Irishmile and Riot23... even copy and pasting over all that takes a ton of work.

getting closer to completion^^

EDIT
@irishmile
Maybe there is a thing where you can help me...
With the two files of the flybrush-folder (these are the sprites when Guybrush is flying towards the camera after shooting himself to monkey island).
It's these two pictures:
http://picpaste.de/flybrush_costumes_a0.png
http://picpaste.de/flybrush_costumes_a1.png
Click once on each picture to get it in fullsize. They are already png with transparency (which is important).

The problem is that Guybrush is much bigger here than on the other pictures. To get the new hair on his head I had to upscale it immensly. I've sharpened it afterwards but because of the big upscale it's not really looking good.
This is what I came up with on these:
http://picpaste.de/flybrush_custom.png
(again clicking on the picutre for fullsize)

As you see the hair is very pixelated and it doesn't fit pretty good neither.
Maybe you can do your new hair again on these two in bigger size if you find the time.
Just save it again as png with transparency if possible.
Thanks in advance.

EDIT2
Just played the scene to test how it looks ingame ... and well, it didn't look anyway that bad as I thought.

DONE!!!

I hope I didn't forget a folder, but I think I got them all.

And here it is, the first hair patch for our beloved game:
http://www.file-upload.net/download-...iot23.rar.html

Just unpack and copy the "art" folder into the game directory.
What still remains unchanged are all the close-ups.

Maybe someone might try to edit them, but at least every single Sprite of Guybrush got rid of the ugly hair LucasArts put on him.

I had a go at making the sprite look better, not perfect but I think it's an improvement at least.

How about these for the flying Guybrush sprites? I knocked these up in quarter of an hour or so, so they're a little rough.

I also changed the face slightly from the SE edition in an attempt to make him look a little less gormless.

Thanks! I can't work on the close-ups. Sorry about that, I just don't have time. Good luck with finishing the project though.

His hair wiggles oddly when he talks as if it's an insecure wig. Not perfect but otherwise works nicely. Good job.

Gotta agree. The only issue I see is that the hair is not "aligned" the same way for all frames, which is noticeable when they are animated.

BTW when this is fixed, this pack should get it's own thread IMHO.

For my own amusement, I'm also altering the Guybrush sprites.

I've deflated the hair, widened his face shape, and darkened his brows. I'm around 50% through the sprites. I'm working on all the side views now.

Here's a small sample of before and after:

And here's ingame:

Hey, what about trying to build up a new Guybrush sprite starting from this original Purcell's work?

For those who, like me, dislike the new logo for Stan's, I've created a replacement sign.

Comparison of SE, my version and the original VGA

Here's a link with a larger screenshot: http://picpaste.de/pics/stans_replac...1250536613.jpg

The replacement dxt files are here, unzip into the art/rooms/ folder to use:

I had to registrer just to say how much I love your Monkey Island Backgrounds. They are the best MI pictures I've ever seen!!

To bad lucasarts didn't hire you to help them (or tell them how to do it) with MI1:SE


To everyone else,
great work you have done here, I love it!!

Does anyone know what tools out there (if any) will convert tracks in Apple's CoreAudio format (.caf)? The music tracks in the iPhone version are recorded in this format and it seems to be a relatively obscure format.

First scene

Hi Guys, first scene is done... here is the file:

http://leteckaposta.cz/493174926

What you have to do is unpack zip file, and copy Art folder to:

C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\the secret of monkey island special edition\

This file also includes new Guybrush hair from "Riot23" (I guess)

Let me know how you like it... comments are welcome

You can find the patch in the italian miforum.
It's just 1.0 for now, but at least no more "orzata" and "possente pirata"
Can you give a link to the Italian version of MI? I cant find it, thx
