I saw on the official website for Shadows of Esteren that there is an officially sanctioned SoE rule set for FG but it is in French. Would anyone out there be up for translating it to English for those of us English speaking fans that want to play on here? I would gladly pay someone to.

Any interest?

I have too much on my plate already, but replacing French text should be a simple replace operation using a good text editor. All of the code should be untouched.

Just search for the word in the interface that you want to replace, find translation on Google, search in the files for all instances of the word (i.e. I use Notepad++) and replace.

After a few iterations of this, you would have a mostly English version.

The only issue is that A) I do not have the French ruleset for FG and have no clue where to get it and B) even if I did have it I have no idea what files to access/how to view them so I could edit the French.

I will talk to the creator of the ruleset. If he's not to busy, I'm sure he can help you.

Hi,
The translation is in progress. It was asked by the creators of the game.

To specify, Heedio is the author of said ruleset :)

I, too, would be interested in any news about the status of the Esteren ruleset. I was able to find the French version on the website, and it does load in FG3 and looks like a beautifully done ruleset. But it's obviously written for FG2 and throws errors when you try to use certain parts of the interface in FG3. Does the author have plans to update it for FG3?

Since the publisher has asked for an English version, I'm guessing there some update (either from the ruleset or from FG) as to compatibility along with it. But only heedio can state that for sure.

Cool, well I guess we can just be patient and keep an eye out for any further news. I just asked though because that last post from Heedio is dated Sept. 2012, so I wondered if the ruleset was still being actively worked on at all, and thought someone might've heard something more recent from the game's French community concerning updates to the ruleset for FG3.

Totally missed that date! My bad!

So no, I don't know at all. I can ask him.

First, get the ruleset working in French.

Then, edit scripts\langue.lua in the ruleset, comment out the line local langue = "french"; and enable the line local langue = "english"; at the top of the file.

It's not simple to change the font size - as the fonts are fixed size and also a lot of the interface will be designed with a specific size in mind - changing it can mess up the interface.

A simple solution is to use the /scalueui <percent scale> chat command to scale the whole interface. Try something like /scaleui 125 to scale the whole UI 125%.

If you want to change a specific font, then you'll need to find where it's used in the code, and change the <font> definition - info here: http://www.fantasygrounds.com/refdoc/font.xcp The fonts are defined in the ruleset in bmpfonts.xml.

That would actually be perfect! Everything seems a bit small for me! I'll try that thanks!

No worries.

And a belated welcome to Fantasy Grounds and the FG forums! :)
