Improved German LBA1

Hi guys!
Has anyone ever played LBA 1 in German? It sucks!!111
I today started to play LBA 1 again and this time I couldn't stand it anymore. I used the translation tools to correct all of these stupid spelling, commata, and sometimes even vocabulary mistakes. I updated the spelling to the current standards (Believe it or not, there are arguments in Germany what kind of spelling should be used ).
Seriously, I guess no one in the official German translation team was a native German speaker. I kept my corrections close to the dubbing, so there are still a lot of serious grammar mistakes. The dubbing itself has many pronounciation mistakes, too.

If anyone feels like using this, download the zip file and extract the text.hqr. Replace this with the text.hqr in you LBA 1 folder and change your language to German. I've not seen many Germans around here, but maybe you can find it usefull...

Have fun with proper German!

Thanks.
It's just quite annoying if they write Hölle (hell) instead of Höhle (cave), for example.

Streg- eh, you posted the same time as me.
Hey, I made it in two hours or something, as I didn't correct the grammar.
I just cannot correct mistakes like: "Good day neighbor. Hello neighbor, I today fixed ... "

So, I played a bit, and found a few other mistakes. I corrected 10 general mistakes and updated another 7 words to their current spelling.

I don't want to waste MBN space so I'll post the file only when I've got some major changes.

I found something else what is - I guess - an LBAWin bug - check the attached picture. Unlike to LBA 2 the text in the blue box doesn't scroll left and right but is instead cut off at the edge (only in the screenshot the text is displayed outside the box). Is there any solution to this?

Actually, I think that if the text is long enough, it should scroll. If I remember correctly, at the first tests of our Hebrew translation all the text used to scroll, because there was some mistake somewhere...

Maybe you must insert a certain character somewhere in the quote.

Anyway, I standardized the name of "magic level", so there's no longer a Kraftstufe and Energiestufe, but just a Magiestufe. 7 changes here.
I did the same with "Proxima Island" and changed one "Proxima-Insel" to "Insel Proxima", and corrected 2 other mistakes.

Sorry for doubleposting again.

Right now, every "sentence" with very few words (like "Hello") ends with a period! Finally! 43 periods added.

In addition I changed 3 "No"s into the German "Nr." and correct some utter nonsense five other times. Wooo I'm fast.

No solution for the problem above jet?

So, again many fixes here and there.
I think I'm done now, all I have to do is removing all spaces before !s, ?s and "s because they always end up in the next line! Omg that'll take some time.
And there's still this scrolling (or not-scrolling) bug.


Btw. alexfont, I reported a bug in the LBA Screen viewer.

I'm confused about this quote:
Quote:
I've been working on a Jet-Pack prototype for days now. It's a small reactor that is harnessed on the back and allows its user to fly about. My problem is that my latest flight test wreaked havoc on my Southern wall. So I'd like to borrow the rheostat in your hair dryer to fine tune the power of the motors (from looking at your hairdo, I don't think you really need the dryer, anyway). And if that works, I will have a job offer for you.
It's obvious where this quote has to be, but when I buy the hairdryer before talking to Baldino the first time, I just get:
Quote:
So you found a hair dryer? Great! I'll be with you in a minute, just let me install the rheostat.
Maybe it's just LBA bug #3592.

@ChaosFish: When I'm finished, where should I put the file up?

Hallo Kobolt, ich habe die 1 schon 4 mal durchgespielt und die 2 schon 14 mal, und habe noch keinen einzigen Fehler entdeckt. Ich spiele ja nicht um die Rechtschreibung zu korrigieren, sondern um zu zu spielen. Villeicht habe ich es nur nicht gemerkt weil ich immer mit Sprachausgabe spiele. Hast du soviel Zeit alle Fehler rauszugramen?
Du bist erst 3 Monate im Forum und hast schon 300 Beiträge. Ich bin seit 2 Jahren im Forum und habe erst 100. Wie geht denn dass wenn ich fragen darf?

Translation:
Spoiler:
Hello Kobolt, i have played LBA1 through 4 times right now and LBA2 14 times, and I didn't ever see a mistake. I don't play to correct the spelling! Perhaps I just didn't notice because I ever play with speech on. Do you have so much time to correct the mistakes?
You are a member in this forum for just 3 months and already have 300 posts. I'm here for two years and only have 100. How is that possible, if I may ask?

Das geht sehr wohl. Und mich schreibt man immer noch mit einem d am Schluss.
Wie oben schon steht, so Sachen wie Hölle <-> Höhle usw usf.
Zeit habe ich ohne Ende in den Ferien.
Spoiler:
Of course it's possible. And my name is still written with a d in the end.
Like stated above, there are thinks like "Hölle <-> Höhle" etc. etc.
And I have plenty of time in the holidays.

Sooo, I'm done!
The only quote I didn't change must be the Sendell quote. Maybe because she's a real godess .
So ChaosFish, I need to know what to do with the file in order to get it up at LBitA.

Anyone of the modification guys up for a solution for the scrolling problem?

- Kobold: Just post the file here on the MBN, so that ChaosFish can see it. He'll download it and when he has time, he'll put it on LBitA.

Cool stuff; I'll make sure I use your version if I ever decide to play LBA in German. It seems weird that LBA was made before the spelling reform...

The old spelling seems just weird for me because I grew up only knowing the new one.

So, here's the final file, you still have to replace it with the TEXT.HQR in your LBA 1 folder and change your language to German.
If anyone still finds mistakes, report them here.

And ChaosFish - feel free to upload it to LBitA.

O, and I still have no solution for the above scrolling problem. Is there really no way to fix it?
