FEAR Multilanguage Progress 2012/11/06

Little progress today. Spent most of the time trying to force the German updater to install but that didn’t work at all. The creators made each language use a hexadecimal code for each language, but only tested 2 and couldn’t find a pattern. Tomorrow will continue to extract all other languages and check the hexadecimal code of the existing installers so I can figure out the german one.

Again If someone has FEAR or FEAR Combat installed in German I’d love to get: 5 files from your game, or 2 values from your Registry.

Meanwhile I got Italian files today, idk why I don’t have all of them, looks like the files I already had for most languages were in the Virtual machine I lost in the Hard Disk disaster some months ago :/

There’s a chance tomorrow I work in the language switch in the Launcher. Shouldn’t take that much time, I only wanted some more language files.

German Language Missing.

In today news, I still can’t get the german installer for FEAR or FEAR Combat.

but I think I can trick the 1.08 updater to install on top of the english version with some registry hacks.

Will try tomorrow. For now I reinstalled the VM to extract the language packs. I hope I can have more time to work on this.

Server List is almost complete, only needs some visual tweaks.

Will work more on this tomorrow 🙂

New FEAR Combat Launcher coming soon

I started working on It, this time It’s a Win32 exe, so It will have all the required features we couldn’t Implement in the existing one.

The features we will include are:

  • AutoUpdate.
  • Advanced Configuration tool.
  • Working Language switcher.
  • Better CDKey update tool.
  • Improved server list with filter and arrange features.
  • Working (again) News section.
  • Working FEAR-Community profile linking.
  • Run Game as Administrator (Implemented).

What is already implemented? Well, nothing. But I know how to implement everything, only need time ( yeah, that’s the bad news ). I hope we can release this for 2013/01/01, but who knows.

Update:

Already implemented some of the features.  Most of the old functionality already works, except for the CDKey update, will work on that later!
