Textures

  • About 90 Mbyte of TGA texture files have been converted to about 25 MByte DDS. This will improve load times and reduce memory consumption (Tels)
  • Some plant and barrel textures have been improved (Serpentine)


Translation

  • Both the menus and the in-game HUD as well as other on-screen messages are translatable into different languages.
  • FMs can have their own, specific translation dictionaries, meaning it is possible to update the translation w/o touching the FM PK4 file itself.
  • The language can be selected in the menu, and is switched immidiately.
  • Czech, French, German, Italian, Polish and Portuguese are mostly done, other languages still need translators. If you want to help, please post at this thread.
