Inherit the Earth from Wyrmkeep

Post by Adventureguy »

Hello,
I have a little question about the rerelease of ItE from Wyrmkeep. Afaik the game's available in English. Is this the only language available for this version or are there other languages like German, French, etc. available? Or is this a multilanguage version?

I have the re-release here (bought a few months ago) and there is no other language than english there, also there is nothing mentioned on the webpage about a multilingual version available, so i'd say sorry, but no

Oh well, doesn't matter, my English is quite well (I think) so I may consider ordering it. Do you think they'll put effort in producing this game in other languages?

They have their forums so best to ask them directly. But as I know, the answer is No.

Hmm, the only other language the game features i'm aware of is indeed german.

http://www.angusm.demon.co.uk/AGDB/DBA1/EdE.html
It was the Amiga CD/CD32 version, which i also owned until some weeks ago. Made a donation with the game to a porter of ScummVM :-)
IIRC it was already supoorted by ScummVM, too...
Unfortunately a german PC version were never produced (maybe due to the bad selling numbers), but i'm not 100% sure about that

To your other question, well, ask nicely at their forums (as @sev pointed out). If they have the source code they may also have
access to some (all?) of the MasterDisks and it may be possible for them to re-release the german speech version, too?

Otherwise, you would have to look around (eBay, FleaMarkets) to get your hands on the AmigaCD version...

btw: If you can, use the english talkie, some of the actors doing the german syncronisation are real amateurs and i MEAN amateurs.
i.e. the voice of the "Orb of Storms" sounds like someone living near Stuttgart, being awfully bored and trying to sound
like a computer voice which goes comletely wrong, believe me ... AWFUL, that's why i ordered the re-release...

There exists a german Dos Floppy and CD version of ITE, and I think they're both supported by ScummVM.

I think ITE is available at least in french and italian as well, maybe also spanish.

ScummVM includes English and German texts from ITE.EXE so I suppose that the german version exists.

I don't believe that a french version exsits but a team of amateurs is working on a french translation. (amateur comes from the french word aimer)

Happy new year to all

Original ITE was translated into German by independent company and German ITE versions are: DOS Floppy, DOS CD, Mac CD, Amiga Floppy and Amiga CD32. All versions except Amiga are supported by ScummVM.

Yes, I'm aware about those efforts so is Joe Pearce of Wyrmkeep. Overall Joe is very friendly to all fan stuff and those guys have his blessing, as well as another team who plans to translate ITE into Russian. But neither of version haven't release any files to the public.

I saw that Wyrmkeep released a "music.rsc" in one of their updates and in ScummVM it works on the old version of ITE too. Kudos!

The CD32 version is a German talkie, but AFAIK, ScummVM doesn't support it. Sordid's on steroids :)

This is not fun, you know. Can't you read what is written above? If no, I'll cite specially for you:

I thought this was clear enough.
