NPCs and translations.

2012-10-08 13:42:01 by matt-likes-swords

Currently working on making all the NPCs and writing their dialogue.
They're a bit more interesting this time, and actually say new stuff once you trigger certain flags.

Here's a crappy NPC editor you can play around with.

Also, I've decided to translate EBF4 into Spanish, Portuguese, German and French.
It's going pretty well so far, Google Docs is pretty awesome for collaborative work.

So these NPc's will give us more questes to complete right? but this time thet's ask us to slay some special monsters too. right?

matt-likes-swords responds:

Probably less quests than before, but slightly more interesting ones.

Holy shit, the EBF series is starting to become more complex than huge console RPGs. :P

I'm going to lose so much sleep because of you. haha.

Seems awesome and it will be interesting with more dialogue. Will you still be able to be with a partner/ partners in fights or will it be like Adventure Story?

I don't know if you are just using google to translate the text, but if you have any German questions I might be able to help.

this looks amazing! though some questions still remain, will I be able to download it? will there be a multiplayer mode? could we possibly have a battle/scene editor where we can use characters and monsters we've encountered?

matt-likes-swords responds:

I thought about it, but probably not.

Wow! It will be also a multilingual game. Does it means that some spanish speakers, portuguese speakers, german speakers and french speakers are going to play the game too?

I always wanted to play EBF in spanish... Thank you, Matt, thank you...

I speak Spanish :(

But I wouldn't trust myself as a translator. Still, if you need someone to have a look at it....

Hi Matt!

I'm a native german speaker and my english (if I may say so) is quite well. (ok ok enough with the ranting) I've been studying in UK for almost a year, so I guess i could help you out if you need a helping hand with translating something to german!
send me a pm if you have any interest ;)

Nice. I know I shouldn't always complain about this, but where are the "important" languages? (for example Finnish, I'm Finnish y'know?)

matt-likes-swords responds:

The important languages are the most popular ones!

Just 2 questions: 1st The Spanish language will be neutral or the latin one? I'm tired of people saying that it is translated in Spanish and did not traslate properly (or failed to say which one is). Mainly preference. And 2nd: Will us be able to choose the language to read, or will be forced to our only language? So I can get back to English in case I don't like the translation.

matt-likes-swords responds:

1: We're trying to make it neutral, but it'll probably be closer to the south American version.
2: You'll have options.

Heeeey, what about italian? >_> I mean, it's not a problem for me to play the english version, but if a read all those things about translation in french, spanish etc but not italian it reminds me about kingdom hearts 3d! I don't want to be boring but just think about it for 10 mins and i'll be fine!

Sweet! I'll probably use the English from the start though. I'm used to read everything in English on the net so using Spanish... I feel strange :S
