Topic: Bleeding Edge 431 translation

is it better to ensure that the game can be fully translated? I mean everything.
For example, the score, time and rings (in play, see top left.).
but also the "now loading ..." and the text at the bottom of the menu.

0.1.4 was never fully translated!

Re: Bleeding Edge 431 translation

the "now loading" can't be translated at this time because it's a fixed image in the images/ folder. we can probably improve this.

I tried to translate the HUD (score, time, rings) to portuguese, but it looked strange, so I left it in English anyway. That's up to you. Translate it, test the game and see if it feels okay.

is it a future plan?
or in the future, this picture is replaced by another? a load screen?

I haven't really though about it, but it's simple to make. modders then won't be able to change the location of the 'loading' text, but I don't find that to be a problem, really. (edit: actually they will, using spaces and newlines in the translation file ¬¬)

If someone makes a better loading screen, sure, why not.

Re: Bleeding Edge 431 translation

simple or animated?

i was wondering, since we're keeping rings as collectibles, would this look right?

we could replace the "loading" message by a logo, either static or animated. i think loading bars are overused, and besides, cartridge consoles didn't have loading times. if we're trying to add the 16-bit feeling, the loading bars just remove it.

Re: Bleeding Edge 431 translation

the loading screen is a static one. no animation is supported at this time.

a loading logo like that would be nice, but i think the 'loading' text should be preserved (or replaced by something like 'please wait'), so users will know that the game is loading.

if you can do some polishing, of course we can use that. smile

Re: Bleeding Edge 431 translation

The load screen is displayed only a few seconds.
I think a loading bar or anything that moves does not seem nice.

That could even make a nice (temporary) logo for Open Surge. 'cause the ring looks like an O, and the lightning looks like an S. smile
