Is Secret of the Cyclops available in English or not?

Beitrag von vinicity » Donnerstag 25. November 2004, 09:38

There is an English flag next to it in the list, but when I try to order it either on TDE-Mobile or on elkware's site, I can't choose English as a language for the download. I see German, Spanish, French, etc., but not English!

Please fix this. I am dying to play more TDE games and I've completed all the ones available in English so far...

On a related note, when is more of the German adventures coming out in English? Blutrauche and Himmelsbrand looks awesome!

Hi vinicity

First of all: Yes, it's available.

The flag on www.tde-mobile.com only tells you the availability.

Choose your cellphone model from the list and push "Select".

On the next screen you will be able to choose your language.

Thanks for your compliments. At the very moment there are only TDE 1 up to 6 available in English and there is no English translation on the roadmap. We - Chromatrix - would really like to go for them and hope that elkware agrees with us in 2005.

Thanks for the quick reply.

However you misunderstood me slightly.

I choose my cellphone from the list and push "Select", and on the next screen I can choose my language. However, the only languages that appear in the dropdown box is "deutsch", "italian", "francais", and "espanol".

Shouldn't "english" be in that list too?

My phone is a Z1010 from SonyEricsson, by the way.

Same problem

Hi! :)

I'm having the same problem; I'm trying to order a TDE-game that should have an English translation, at least according to the flags next to it, but I can't choose it in the ordering-menu. This problem occurs on both tde-mobile.com and on elkware.com, so it could be that both sites are using the same broken back-end or something.

This problem only appears in the RPG's though; I can order the "Arena" game in English without problems.

I hope someone can help me with this! :D

Thanks in advance, and greetings!

P.S. I agree about the English translations; there are way too few RPG's on mobile phones and the Dark Eye games are pretty cool! :) So if you manage to get them translated, I would be really grateful! :)

Thanks for reminding us. The problem is: There is still no english version for the Z1010 (and probably some others) available. We will tell elkware to provide this phone. There is no technical reason.

So...

Beitrag von vinicity » Montag 27. Dezember 2004, 23:39

Any news yet?

Surely it would be in your own interest to fix this... A lot of peple have newer phones like the Z1010 and are probably (I know I am) dying to play more TDE titles! :)

Hi vinicity,

elkware tries to bundle building and testing new versions of existing games with the release of a new game. This will be in the third week of January as far as we know.

So hopefully the Z1010 will be supported then. We do our best to remind them continuously. :wink:

Seems I won't ever be able to play it in English. Too bad...

I'm not sure I follow you, but it seems to be good news then! :)

Any news on if any new games will be coming out in English?

Yeah, the good news for you is: The Z1010 will be supported.

But: There is still no "Go" for TDE 7+ :cry:
