Beginnings of Localization Support


On Potato server, I'm now testing basic localization support.  When connected to Potato, on the options screen, you will have an option to select which language to play in.  For the most part this doesn't do a whole lot yet as the game isn't yet translated, but in anticipation of going to Tokyo Game Show, I'm working with a friend to get the game translated into Japanese.

Also, you can now type foreign characters into the chat window!  I intended this for people chatting in their native language, but instead I fully expect to be inundated with extravagant emoticons shortly ಠ_ಠ  ... (╯°□°)╯︵ ┻━┻

If you speak a foreign language, you can also translate the game!  In, open up localization.xls in excel, add a new column, and follow the instructions.  You could translate the game to your native language, or just make everything speak in Olde English for your 8BitMMO Middle Ages Feudal England Mod.  Either way, should be useful for the modders! 🙂

Moving all the strings out of the code and into excel may have resulted in some weird text in places, so if you catch any of those situations on Potato, please report them!
