Does me having the German versions of both games prevent me from using TTW?

Hi,

I tried to install it and I ran into several errors, which I ignored, and then after ~one hour  this pops up:

[23.06.2014 21:44:37] Patching Fallout3.esm... [23.06.2014 21:44:39] Your version of Fallout3.esm cannot be patched. Currently Tale of Two Wastelands only works on legal, fully patched versions of Fallout3.
  I have both games in Steam, Fallout 3 Goty (German low violene :( ) and F:NV with all mods (seperatly) (German low violence).    Any way to fix this?

TTW Version Compatibility: 

v2.6

You can use a copy of your

You can use a copy of your language for FNV but FO3 has to be an English copy.

I'm not a part of the team but they are concerned with compatibility.

You can send to them your instal.log to improve compatibility with non-English copy of FO3.

I'm using Windows 7 and it

I'm using Windows 7 and it can be found in:

C:\Documents\My Games\Tales of Two Wastelands

The instal.log should be there. If you cannot find it, try to search your saves or Fallout.ini and Falloutprefs.ini, you should find the Tales of Two Wastelands folder next to it.

 

Edit: TJ was faster than me ;)

Here are the logs from my multiple attempts at installing TTW. I encountered (as you can see by the file size) quite a few error, the majority of those installing the voices, but also some installing sounds, landscapes etc.

Those are indeed quite

Those are indeed quite helpful, thank you very much. It is still going to be some time before we can patch non-english ESMs but we are working on allowing non-english BSAs. What this means is that you can get audio in German, but all the text will be in English, for now. To do so you MUST have steam and you MUST have the option to download the game in different languages.

Backup your german copy of Fallout3. Call it Fallout3 - German or something.

Open your steam library, right-click on Fallout3 and choose properties.

Click on the languages tab and choose english from the drop box. Click close.

Steam should start downloading an english copy of Fallout3. If it does not, verify the game cache using Steam.

Once the download is done, backup your now english copy of Fallout3 call it Fallout3 - TTW

Restore the german copy of Fallout3 and change the steam Fallout3 language back to german

Copy the German BSA files (all of them) into Fallout3 - TTW

Start the installer, manually change the Fallout3 directory to point to your Fallout3 - TTW folder

Ignore all errors

Install as usual (as per the alpha download page)

Thanks Jax and all the team! Your work is very appreciated.

Thing is I don't. You probalbly know that already, but in Germany only the low violence version is sold which is only available in german (no idea why making it im possible to shoot of limbs keeps you from changing the language but hey).

As it seems I won't be able to use the installer because of the piracy filter, which is honorable but unfortunately keeps me from playing TTW.

I'll be "forced" to play the game the old way, which shouldn't be too bad either.

Thanks for you help, maybe its going to be posible sometime in the future :)

It means that you cannot

It means that you cannot change the language at all?

If you can put your hands on the English plugins of both games , you can translate them with this:

ESP/ESM Translation: http://www.nexusmods.com/skyrim/mods/29457/

You will find a German database to translate your plugins quick and easy. For the TTW plugins, do a pass with the FO3 database and the FNV database after it.

I hope this will help.

I was able to do this earlier this week by mistake with the Spanish version.


The thing I did though was to run the installer with the Spanish version, till it says that fallout 3 is not official (which is when I realized the error), then I downloaded the English version and ran the installer, but I used the files that it had earlier (I didn't redo them). The fallout 3 game ran in Spanish, eventually I redid the installation, but I hadn't found any problem.

Is there anything I can do to help or support your work on a multilingual (in my case german) installer?

Do you need any infos from the german version, install-logs or any other data?

Appreciate your work!

Hi JaxFirehart,

Hi JaxFirehart,

I tried to install TTW v2.6.3a.

For preparation I created a new folder (D:\TTW\Fallout NV) with a fresh Fallout: New Vegas + DLC (austrian version from steam) and another folder (D:\TTW\Fallout 3) with a fresh install Fallout 3 + DLC (german version from Disc).
Fallout 3 is version 1.0 so I installed the german v1.7 patch.
In the german FO3 Version the executables are NOT Fallout3.exe but Fallout3ng.exe. The "ng" stands for "no gore".
So I renamed the 3 Files (Fallout3ng.exe, Fallout3ng.exe.cat and Fallout3ng.exe.cfg) to Fallout3.exe, Fallout3.exe.cat and Fallout3.exe.cfg.
After that I applied the austrian v1.7 patch.
Now I have the austrian uncut / german uncut version of both games.
Without this procedure the installer won't find the fallout3.exe.

Next Step was to install TTW. Here are my logfiles.

Hope this helps you!

If you need any further infos just say it.

- Galliano

Try it again (if you would)

Try it again (if you would) and instead of aborting when the error dialog pops up, hit ignore and go as far as you can.

OK, the error-window was to big, i didn't saw any buttons so i just press space.

Now this time i moved the window upward and pressed "ignore" ;)

here is my (long) log.

It ends with the info, that my Fallout3.esm cannot be patched.

If you need more infos about my installation or need me to do some testing just say a word.

That should be plenty for now. We are building a blacklist of files to ignore if they are different.

That log was 2.5 million

That log was 2.5 million words long T-T

Or, if you prefer, roughly twice the current length of the Game of Thrones book series.

Have fun, Jax xD

Well I can tell it to ignore

Well I can tell it to ignore all .lip and .ogg files and that takes of probably 2.4 million lines. Mostly I'm looking for stuff that is different in other places, like the optimus prime sounds and the screen fade sounds.

So, there are any news for non-english version? Because i haven't any possibility, to buy an original version of the game, because in my country, the language is not English and, for these reason, i don't find the game in English. Only way that i can try, is take a pirate copy of english version of the game, but you say that thing don't function, with the mod installer. So, what can i do to take and play, the most beautiful and useful mod, ever created before, for this game? Maybe, you could try to function the mod installer, even with the pirated version of the game. I'm very very sad, because my language, is the cause of these problem and prohibits me to play, this magnificent mod. (i'm sorry for my bad english)

Not really, no. I was working toward a solution and had to go back to University, I intend to get back to work over break, but I can't tell you how much longer.

The game will never work with a pirate game, please don't ask again.

Hey Roy,

Hey Roy,
I posted the logfile in the thread with my other logfile, so Jax has both together. This is a thread regarding the german version. I don't have any questions just want to share my experience with the team.
This thread and the one from raubkopiesäbel are the most recent german/multilingual threads.
