Yes, it's all there. Hungarian texts for GZDoom are complete (minus a handful of very recent additions.)

No. These are items from Blood for CTF. They are currently non-functional but the text file needs to cover everything that got exported from the source code.

Yes - act 5, scene 1. http://shakespeare.mit.edu/macbeth/macbeth.5.1.html You might see if there's an existing translation of the play to Hungarian, to go by.
"Luck Sore" not sure what this refers to
This one's a pun on Las Vegas' "Luxor" casino, I believe. It's named for the city in Egypt.

New strings need translated
Image
These start on Line 600 (as of now, anyway) of the Common tab.

What these do is they open the operating system's file browser (i.e. Windows Explorer) to these respective locations.

Decided to start working on some LatAm Spanish (ESM and such) translations for Raze.
Google doc link.

Many strings can be used directly from the ESP translation, but there's a few that have vocabulary specific to European Spanish, any suggestions welcome, feel free to ask about editing or commenting permissions.

New translation string:

https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/ ... =1091:1091

Weapons give extra ammo (DM) - context: in deathmatch Doom weapons unconditionally give ammo. This option when set to "no" disables that behavior.

(as of now) Line 1091 in the "GZDoom Engine Strings" tab (2nd tab from the left)

Reference string: GMPLYMNU_NOEXTRAAMMO

Nice. One you are a bit further ahead we may consider doing it directly in the main sheet. But let's wait with that until it takes shape, there's no harm done doing it in a separate sheet first and later moving the content in its entirety.

I went ahead and added the two missing characters (U-0404 and U-0490) to all fonts in GZDoom.

I just went through the translations to see what is missing right now, so here's the list, one post per language. Starting with Czech and Hungarian, because both are missing exactly the same content:

GZDoom is complete, but for Raze a handful of texts is not translated:

Code: Select all


You need the key for this door     TXT_EX_NEEDKEY
Take out the control center!	   TXT_EX_TAKEOUT
%d towers remaining	               TXT_EX_TOWERSREMAIN
Invisibility is about to expire	   TXT_EX_INVISEXP
Invincibility is about to expire   TXT_EX_INVINVCEX
Weapon power is about to expire	   TXT_EX_WEAPONEX
Mask is about to expire	           TXT_EX_MASKEX
Full Viewing Pitch (Experimental)  PLRMNU_FULLVIEWPITCH
Update: Czech is done now, only Hungarian remaining for these.
