savegame repair and language update
« on: January 18, 2017, 12:15:13 pm »
hi there,

i used 2.5 (IA-32 Apr 14 2014 Win32 Release) in german and my savegames are corrupted (xml-data).

i tried to use the translator for compiling the .po into .mo to avoid future destruction of my savegames.
But it was impossible for me, to pick the right compilation path for the translated text.

and i need help, to repair my savegames.

the savegame is a great try in the medium difficulty, so must have them repaired. ^^

i there any email, to where i can send them?

Make sure, you use the latest language file from the 2.5 branch: https://sourceforge.net/p/ufoai/code/ci/ufoai_2.5/tree/src/po/ufoai-de.po
PoEdit can compile the language file to mo. The destination path for the mo file is supposed to be somewhere
Code: [Select]
$PROGRAM_FILES\ufoai-2.5\base\i18n\de\LC_MESSAGES\ufoai.mo

You may need to enable 'show hidden files' or similar option. the language file should be in C:\Program Files\UFOAI-2.5\base\i18n\de\LC_MESSAGES\ufoai.mo. If your version of Windows put program files in a different path you need to find it our for yourself as I don't know Windoof that much..

Attached your games fixed.

Oh, obviously, on 64bit systems, the program will be in Progam Files (x86) - as the installer is 32bit-only.
