LBA re-release email from Didier

Hey, I emailed Didier about a LBA re-release and i got a file ( whichh i cant downlaod cos of friggin hotmail) and a french reply. Now seeing as im uselesss at French, i was hoping to post the thing in english here, but could someone perchaps translate it? thanks ..... i think the 1st line says ... excuse me but my reply is in french? bah i dunno, but help please

Bonjour Darek,

Je vous prie de m'excuser pour ma réponse en français. Nous finalisons
la version US de MotoRacer Advance et le temps me manque. De plus, vous
l'avez déjà constaté mon Anglais est vraiment mauvais.

Je vous remercie pour l'attention que vous portez à LBA. Je suis très
heureux de savoir que des gens aiment cette histoire à tel point qu'ils
organisent des forums, des sites, des jeux... c'est extraordinaire.
C'est vous qui faites vivre la légende de Sendell!! et qui sait? Peut
être la réveiller un jour. La réalisation de LBA a été pour nous une
fabuleuse aventure. C'est une équipe passionnée qui a créé cet univers
onirique.

Aujourd'hui, Adeline n'a pas les moyens de rééditer la version LBA pc.
De plus, c'est EA qui à les droits de réédition. Une solution en ligne
est à l'étude, mais reste globalement onéreuse. Dans quelques jours nous
allons donner enfin des informations sur la renaissance d'ADELINE. C'est
une petite équipe qui a du cœur. Elle est généreuse et créative.

Je suis désolé de ne pas apporter de solution immédiate à votre attente.
Toutefois je prends bonne note de votre demande et y accorde toute mon
attention.

Cordialement
Didier Chanfray

Hello Darek, Please excuse me for my French answer. We finalize the US version of MotoRacer Advance and there is no time to me. Moreover, you already noted it my English is really bad. I thank you for the attention which you pay with LBA. I am very happy of knowing that people like this history at such point that they organize forums, sites, plays... it is extraordinary. It is you who make live the legend of Sendell!! and which knows? Can be to awake it one day. The realization of LBA was for us a fabulous adventure. It is an impassioned team which created this oneiric universe. Today, Adeline does not have the means of republishing version LBA PC. Moreover, it is EA which with the rights of republication. A solution on line is being studied, but remains overall expensive. In a few days we will finally give information on the rebirth of ADELINE. It is a small team which has c.ur. She is generous and creative. I am sorry not to bring an immediate solution to your waiting. However I take good note of your request and all my attention grants to it. Cordially Didier Chanfray


Why can't you download the file?
And what's the file called?

Hm, Didier sent you the drawing of Sendell?

It is the problem with EA's publishing rights etc, if Adeline could solve the problem, Frederick might not take part in the re-release. Besides, that's highly unlikely now, since Adeline is still a company short on cash...

We should just campagn to EA then.
If they dont feel LBA is worth saleing again (like, in a bundle with other software), then they might agree to make it freeware.

Yep, I think we would make most chance to send EA some email, noting how much people are still interested in LBA. Also linking this site ofcourse.


Offtopic: That automated translation is incredibly good!

I'd well see a pack LBA1-LBA2-Time commando, not you ? In the low price editions, you know.

hmm... yeah I kind of expected this..
Well just bug EA with the same question, and note the LBAWin project and the MBN in that email.
That will might help it to convince them

Personally, I think a special edition double pack of LBA 1+2 (able to play on modern PCs) would sell like hot cakes if put on the market.

It might not sell very well here in Holland since LBA2 has been re-released here a while ago and I don't think much people (except for the real fans) would buy a pack with LBA1 and 2 just to own 1.

Yeah Once LBA Win is finished they could include that with the rerelease as well, there would be no other official way to make LBA1 work on modern PCs besides that...

"a better translation made in Vultures !":


Hello Darek,

Please excuse me for my answer in French.We finalize the US version of MotoRacer Advance and I need more time. Moreover, you've already seen that my English is really bad.
I thank everybody for the attention which you have for LBA. I'm very happy to know that people love this history at such point that they organize forums, websites, games... it's extraordinary.
It's you who keep in live the legend of Sendell!! and who knows? Maybe awake it one day. The realization of LBA was for us a fabulous adventure. It's a passionate team which created this "oneiric" universe.
Today, Adeline can't reedited LBA, version PC, 'cause we doesn't have enough money. Moreover, it's Electronics Arts which has the rights of reedition. A solution on line is studied, but stays too expensive. In a few days we'll finally give you information on the rebirth of ADELINE. It is a small team which has a big heart. It is generous and creative. I'm sorry to not bring you an immediate solution to your waiting. However I take note of your request and all my attention grants to it.

Maybe I would buy a LBA1&2 pack. Primo: In case my old one gets broken, Secundo: becoz it isn't far from that.

Twinsal, that is a good idea.
I did the same thing. I have four copies of LBA2. But only one of LBA1.
