Is there a text dump of the game?


Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)




For the purpose of translation, is there a text dump of Blades of Avernum or at least Blades of Exile?

I know there is for the original Exile trilogy and the old Avernum versions, but I can't find any info on Exile/Blades of av.


Thanks in advance.

Excellent news, thank you for your answer. 😀


By any chance I can't find the introduction text for each of the official scenarios, this last one remains untraceable in the folder.


You wouldn't know where it is?

concerning Blades Of Exile, the project Classic Blades of Exile https://github.com/calref/cboe allows to dump all the text of a scenario in a file. 
Regarding doing a translation, it is possible to use the BoE scenario editor to translate the text of a scenario (or to unzip/untar the new scenario format and edit the text files directly) ; there remain two/three main problems ( that I have tried to fix in my fork which diverged strongly 😒, in the floor branch )

  • the code uses basic strings, so if you need to use non-ascii characters : à, é, è, ñ, ... 😒
  • there are a lot of strings that are hard-coded in the code; so without changing the code, it is not possible to translate them,
  • the provided fonts allow to display only some basic characters, most of them western characters ( I haven't solved this problem, but it seems possible to replace the provided fonts with others ).
