Translation to my native language X3FL

Post by syoukikou » Wed, 19. May 21, 12:07

Hello.
The other day I got X3: Farnham's Legacy.
However, sadly, my native language, Japanese, is not supported. :cry:
So I would like to translate it into Japanese myself.

At that time, I would like to publish my gameplay translated into Japanese on a video publishing site such as Youtube.
Is this allowed?

I was about to reply to your email, but I'll do it here instead so that other people can see the answer. :)

When we're pretty sure that all changes and additions to the text have finished, we will provide text files here on the forum for people to translate. If translators are willing, we'd then like to incorporate their work back into the game so that as many other people as possible can benefit from being able to play in their own language.

With regard to gameplay videos on YouTube, that is of course fine. We do reserve the right to review the situation with regard to permission if videos are monetised, however.

Thank you for your reply.
I hope as many players as possible can play in their own language.

I have an additional question.
When displaying Japanese in the game, a font is required for display.
Is it possible for me to extract the font file and Japanese text (0001-L081.xml) from the X3AP file and use it?

Specifically, it's in 02.cat and 02.dat in the X3AP (Japanese version) addon folder.

I would like to use the contents of the "0001-L081.xml" file as the basis for this translation.
