Description

English Translation of the Edain mod v3.8.1 This year we will have a new Edain Mod with a new system and all : EDAIN 4.0. This will be a new game entirely with the long awaited official english translation. I'm sure the EdainTeam will surprise us again with their new version of this Magnificent Mod. But for now let's celebrate the old EDAIN 3.8.1 !


Paste the file englishpatch201 in

Electronic Arts\The Lord of the Rings, The Rise of the Witch-king\lang

in place of the one from Edain. That's it. Play the game. It's in english.
The new powers and stuff are now in google translated english. So it's bad.

For other language versions of the game: you need to rename this file to
the one your game is using. For example if you use a polish version,
you need to rename this file to polishpatch201.big and replace the file.

I know it's not perfect, it's just the job from a guy who was tired of asking himself what were the powers of some obscurs heroes. But I hope it will help a lot of us to patient before the next version and give more time to The Edain Team to work on Version 4 instead of always have to answer the same questions on their moddbs website.

Have fun!

K.

if you play with the hero submod that's normal because i didn't translated it; but if you play just with the edain mod you should have no problem to find out the powers of the few missing files.

Hey klem, thanks for this patch. I have learned German for 7 years and I know how hard the language is ( though I have forgotten a lot of it since I started learning English.

I just want to ask if you are planning on slowly exchaning the google translated stuff or just wait until edain mod is released in english? And any idea where I can find the voices of heroes in English?

Thanks Veirian,
For the moment i'am not planning to re work on the translation because for me it was just a way to make the edain mod comprehensible for all the non german players like me; and by this making the wait for the version 4 easier.
For the english voices of the heroes I think you can find them in the big data file in the bfme2 (not the addon) file.

I tried playing Edain in campaign mode but I do not know German. After losing the first campaign a number of times I decided to translate everything in the language file to English. I replaced your language file with my new one but the campaign is still in German. What other file needs to be edited?

This is what I edited englishpatch201.big. When I save it the files becomes 6000 instead of 3000 in size. The game does not recognize that I edited the german words.

I used Final Big Editor 1.4 to edit englishpatch201.big. I edited the data/lotr.str file within it. I saved the text file, then saved the englishpatch201.big file and copied it to the lang directory C:\Program Files (x86)\Electronic Arts\The Lord of the Rings, The Rise of the Witch-king\Lang\ which overwrote the existing file. I started the game and it still displays german text where I edited it to be english. I also edited the _edain_data.big file and thelotr.str file within, but still it displays german. What file do I edit and how do I save/update the file?
