Está genial, sobretodo gráficamente, espero que para la version final añadas el codigo para unhandled events y pidas más correctores para la traducción, pero vamos que está genial

Translation by Darth:
"It is great, especially graphically, I hope for the final version [you] add the code for unhandled events and ask for more corrections for the translation, but it is cool"
- Please post in English if you are able!  (use google translate ... don't worry about broken English!)

I'll download too. :)


I proofread it, but it's hard, staring at a text file, to know if what you're correcting makes sense in context. :)

I really like the character design, in particular this Gestapo guy (the guy in black whose name I can never remember)

cool stuff and nice graphics.
The rest needs more work. What I mean:
Bigger hotspots.
More interactions.
Better translation.
I didn't hear any sound at all.
When clicking use+Item and then clicking open I still have open Item with in the Actionline.
The small empty bag is placed in an inventory spot where it shouldn't be and leaves one inventory spot empty.

I'll play it shortly to see how the translation turned out.  But here's what I will say.

The conversation between the launder and Indy was really confusing to proofread.  I read it one way (that Indy was talking about Paul as if he had already met him) and though that was chronologically impossible, I corrected with that reading in mind because that's what the dialogue seemed to suggest.  I mentioned this confusion to Quo and he explained that Indy was talking as if he might meet Paul in some future travel and that my translation was fine.  --since that's not how I read it at all, I don't see how it could be fine.


But yes, syntax issues like that make this surprisingly difficult.  So I don't doubt that the translation isn't perfect.

There are also some typos and letters that don't belong there in the speech. Even though I'm no native english speaking person I would volunteer as a second translator or for proofreading a second version of the demo or a second demo (but must be a third then I have a small ROTLA demo already on my hdd :))

Other than that I give up on the game. I have finally

put the one hold rope to somewhere near the fence and the other clothes but the other end is still hanging around.
I have the pieces of rope in my inventory.
When looking at the mast Indy has an Idea (me too) but I can't get the second end or another rope onto the mast to finally dry the dress and get rid of Ahmed. I can't knot the pieces of rope to the loose end.
All these interactions without Indy saying something or giving even a small subtle hint is also quite demotivating : (

Thanks to all  :)

About the translation, I would like to say that Batiste did a great job considering that he worked on a first translation made ​​by me and that was pretty bad, I think this could cause confusion.

It is true that lack interaction, that is because I focused on everything that surrounded the puzzle and many things were left undone, I hope to fix everything in the next demo.

maybe you need another object that was you before.


Mati256, it is the same.

What about the puzzle?

Thank you SuperDre  ;)

The last screen is part of the extended demo, I'm woorking on it.

By the way I' reworking in some parts and characters. This is a sample of the new look of Sallah and Indy disguised.
