I'm thinking about creating a tool to manage the SF2 ROMs under Amsdos. Which languages do you wish?

It would be nice to have the strings table for the application in a separate file so you could add another translation.


In case there could be only one, I'd choose english to reach most people.

Indeed, such a thing is already implemented, at the moment the languages English, French, Spanish and German (since somebody voted for them) are supported. For other languages drop a line here.

I think 3 languages should do it:
English, French, Spanish and German.

(3 languages? Well, sorry, I can only count up to 3, so: 3+1 languages)

In principle you are right, but the CPC has a big RAM and there is still some space ;-)

Hi guys,
 
The ROManager_Amsdos is in beta stage now, MiguelSky and ynot0 are beta-testing at this weekend. And I have one question...
 
Do you need a version for the 464 and 664 too? Or are you perfectly pleased with the 6128 version?

Sorry for my bad English. I shall try it in the worlds most beautiful language :-)
 
Un SF2 est un SYMBiFACE II. Mais la dactylographie ceci des lettres casse mes doigts.
 
@Rob: You must type the letters right, else the producers kick your as. Mine hurts still ;-)

Well, thanks  :D 
It's basicly the CBM surface from FutureOS, I've been too lazy to create a complete new implementatioin for BASIC. So I did use "copy" and "paste" and some extra work.
The good thing is, now I have an "environment" which allows to run some FutureOS applications under BASIC. Let's see, maybe I can make more double-OS releases in future.

I'd like to translate it into Greek, but you'd need to define a greek font... :(

Ok cool! PM me your Email address and I'll send you the english texts of the program. You can translate them on PC if you like.
 
At the moment I don't have a full greek charset (I think?), but I will look for that quite soon  :)

I'm trying to find a BASIC listing with definitions for a Greek font. Would that be of any use to you?

Absolutely! Then I know how the characters shall look like - when a using a CPC! (I know how they look like if I write them, but on CPC...). And further, with some luck, I will also know which characters shall be placed at which keys (needid if you want to save a g(r)eek ROM file).

As a kid, I dis a little program with lots of SYMBOL lines to make the characters look like greek letters.


I'll take a look in case I find it and will try to dump it.

Yeah... I asked in a greek forum for a listing (there were several back then), and am waiting for a reply. If that fails I'll have to find one in a greek magazine of the era...

Well, I found this:
http://www.cpcwiki.eu/imgs/3/38/GREEK.DSK
 
Just start the GREEK.BAS program under BASIC and it changes a-z/A-Z (not all). May you can check it, if it does the job ok, if the charactes are ok and if ALL needed charactes (lower and upper case) have been used.
 
That's what I have. If you think it's ok, then we can use these charcters for a Greek language interface  :)
 
Edit: The ROM version of Protext runs with it :)
