I managed to merge the cog files from the 1.2 patch in the CD1.gob file, just like the GOG version. Having the "Resource/Cog" folder should just work too, but if you are interested in optimizing your french translation so the file structure is just like the GOG version just tell me.
Hi ! It has been a very long time since your kind proposal and always lacked time (I'm very sorry to not have answered earlier), but I would be interested in trying if you're still ready to share your help :)
Thanks a lot for your help again by the way !
Bonjour et un grand merci pour le patch : Une petite question : est ce qu'il fonctionne avec le jeu sur la plateforme steam ?
De rien :)
Alors là, absolument aucune idée, désolé XP
Ben j'ai utilisé la version rapide, et ça marche de manière remarquable ! Merci beaucoup !
Parfait :D Très content d'avoir pu aider à profiter de ce jeu avec sa VF :)
First of all, I think there could be some missing files in your translation. Maybe the french version has not as many modified files as the Spanish version, but your "Patch VF 20181020.7z" translation has these missing files that are modified in the spanish retail 1.2 version. You should compare these files from the GOG version with your french retail 1.2 version and check if they are exactly the same (you can use WinMerge or any checksum checker tool).
1- Checking possible missing files from your translation:
a) Missing modified files from the "\Resource" folder:
b) Missing modified files from the "\Install" folder:
If these files are not the same as the GOG's version files, you must add them to your translation patch.
2- Optimizing the translation so it uses the same file structure as GOG's release:
You should merge the "cog" folder into the "CD1.gob" file, and then, remove the cog folder. You can edit .gob files using ConMan
. I already explained you two years ago how gob files and external folders work in this game and that GOG decided to merge them.
3- Making an Xdelta Patch:
Considering that .gob files are quite large, you could create an Xdelta patch to reduce the size of the uploaded file and making a real patch that only stores the difference between GOG's files and your translation's files, but I'll help you doing so once you fix your current patch.
