#7380 closed enhancement

change behaviour of filesearch

Reported by: SF/dhwz Owned by: SF/ender
Priority: normal Component: GUI
Keywords: Cc:


I tried to put the german language.bnd in my
english "the dig" directory but now it always loads the
language.bnd even if i set the language to English (US).
That results in a german game interface :-)

But i want that i can choose between english and
german, is it possible to change the sourcecode that it
ignores the language.bnd if set to English, because the
original version of the dig has no language.bnd, only the
international versions have it.

Or maybe we can use the extrapath option for every
game and it looks there for files not found in path?
that would be useful because some big games use the
same files and have only different video/data files.

Loading of language files shouldn't be conditionalized upon the base
language, I'd say. E.g. COMI does ship a translation file, even for the
english version.
Rather, if you want to share data files between multiple versions of a
single game, either use symlinks (if you are on a unix-like operating
system), or wait for us to extend extrapath to cover all file searches (I
am only waiting for Ender to give his OK for this change before I commit

The changes I mentioned are in HEAD CVS (and thus in the daily builds),
and should be contained in the next major release (like 0.7.0)

If ender agrees, we could backport those changes to 0.6.x, too - they are
really trivial.

Yeah, adding ExtraPath as a default directory was actually the intention
(the initial Sword1 stuff was just me trying to test CD switching, there
are many problems with it still). So backport at will :)

So, now it is backported, so I'll close the RFE.
