Deeds of a Demon (or is it Devil?)
« on: April 16, 2013, 03:12:42 PM »
Ok,

Who is the smart alec that uploaded this to the Mirror?  The games text is in German - Scheudenfraud! (is that how you spell it?)   I won't even try to play it as I won't understand a damn thing said in the narrative.  Anyone had any plans to do a translation and resubmittal?

Thanks

I've played, and played at translating, part of it.  It's actually pretty good.  The translation would probably work better if done by someone who actually speaks German.

I don't see a problem with having some non-English games in the archive.  A separate folder might be a good idea, but it rarely takes me long to figure out if a game is in a language I can't read.  ;)

I'd like to see the "Top" FRUA games translated into at least a half dozen languages, but I'm pretty sure I'm not the guy to do it.
Some days it just doesn't pay to gnaw through the straps.

Sometimes stuff gets lost in translation.

Beautiful!

When I saw another post on this thread, I was dreading what it might be...This is just AWESOME!

Sorry for being one year late with an answer (unfortunately im not really active in this forum): I designed the module. And even more sorry that i did write it in german and didnt find the time to do an english version. If someone has the time and energy to do an translation - youre welcome.
All the best from Berlin,
Daniel

No need to apologize, DrDan.  We love the fact that our community has been international.   :)

Thanks a lot Hans; if I do another Module some time (I have begun like 10 Designs in the last decade but just finished the two i uploaded) I will do it in English.
Is there actually a possibility to translate the language of a module without going through every event on every map?
Best!

I don't know... Perhaps Merric's GeoText program would help...?   :-\

The last Design i did ("Ayderfalls Adventures") in english; i just uploaded it some days ago. So probably some more people can play it than the german Design.

Ben J has done the huge "The Sect" design in German first and than translated it to English as far as I know - I guess if anybody knows how to do it effectively, he does...

You should post a blurb about that mod in a new thread on the Module Design Previews board.    :)

I DLed it and plan to play, although it may take me a long time, --seeing as how most of my time is dedicated to work on my own entry in the Pre-Gen contest.  Looking at it, I see that there are a lot of Saved Games already.  I assume these were all ones you were using for your own playtesting.  Sometimes authors forget to clear these out before ULing new mods.  Not a big deal, but you might want to tell folks in your Preview announcement to ignore these and create their own Party.   ;)
