New Launcher - German Users

Postby John » Fri Jun 22, 2018 11:40 am

I was wondering if any active players with the German version of KA? There is likely to be one more test release of the combined patch with some minor updates, assuming this goes well then this is the version that will be localized into German.

Won't be long. I'm starting to learn my lesson giving an ETA but I can be reasonably sure the German package will be done in the next week or two. I have the translations in hand (Thanks CISN_Destroyer!) and there is not much work to do.

The combined patch is Komat's wrapper, the same old 1.02 and screenshot fix. The only extra component is the replacement launcher to make wrapper configuration a little easier. I do have one or two future ideas for the launcher but for now I just want to get it out for with the wrapper configuration.

Later than planned but it should be up at the weekend at some point.

After the German combined patch, next items on the list is a host move (quick, I hope) and the new DVD kit (depends on work schedule).

I do have a vague memory of an e-mail from between 2000-2002 where some of the rights issues were explained to me. I don't recall the specifics but I believe Klingon Academy has an extra layer of complications that other Star Trek games might not have, I don't think its impossible though.

Progress, had a last minute unexpected problem but all good now:

Pretty much done aside from packing it up, I'm just installing a German copy of Windows on a spare PC along with a German KA to do a proper test.

Edit: Test went well but I just had a thought, is anyone using a German copy of Klingon Academy on an English copy of Windows?

Downloads up

There will be a follow up release after these ones which will be the final combined patch in its current form. That release will correct any mistakes I might have made in copying the translations, a fix to one of the campaign missions video playback and hopefully speeding up the reading of currently set environmental variables by the launcher that are used by the wrapper.

Sorry about the delays on this :(
