Apologies for not keeping this section updated, as the most recent work has been the ongoing rewriting of the main storyline dialogues
But here's what's also been done in the Dialogues and Descriptions Department recently, to be included in a forthcoming dialogues patch
- pchester's complete rewrite of the 'string_table_arhara' file
- Five misleading clues in Collector corrected
- Changed most, if not all, Diary entries from the second-person perspective 'You need to [do this task]...' to the more immediate first-person 'I need to [do this task]...'
- Finally completed the 'stable_repair_dialogs' file. Only 30 files now left uncompleted out of 154!
- Every individual SMS message (other than the few residing in the script files) is now in decent English
- Not only that, but each SMS has been checked to be within the 196 character limit - so it doesn't crash the game when summoned
- The main storyline dialogues have been rewritten up to the point where you need to get the Flight Recorder from the helicopter in Pripyat. In addition to radiation, this is an area of intense anomalous gobbledegook, but we're steadily pushing our way through the verbal sh*tstorm, further than any lexicological cryptologist has ever gone before...
- pchester is now working to get each of the 600+ stash locations in the game into decent English, while personalizing them to each Stalker who left them...
- The 'kontroller_diaries' file contains recovered diary entries found on dead Controllers trying to expose what happened to them, and comprise 33 of the longest, most incomprehensible pieces of machine translation imaginable. Trying to get one's head around these, and into the mindset of the political prisoners writing them, is a veritable nightmare - but with 6 of them painstakingly rewritten by sjohnson, and another 8 extracted from LampGenie's recent translation in NS DMX, we're on our way to putting this absolutely diabolical file to rest...
