Default Eschalon: Book III - Mod Text Files

February 24th, 2014, 15:06
Basilisk Games has posed an update on their forums about modding Eschalon: Book III.

Eschalon: Book III MODS: Text Files

Everyone- this is step one for modding. There will be more releases in the coming weeks.

Below is a link to all the text files used in Book 3. I have put these up because I am getting a lot of requests for language translations. If you want to translate Book 3 into your native language, here's where you start.

A few rules:

- DO NOT add any extra page breaks or carriage returns into the text. Yes, you can extend or shorten blocks of text when translating, but you will break the game if you add additional carriage returns.

- DO NOT translate any of the script code. Script code may look like:
A keyword inside angle brackets.
give_item (Erubor's Letter) A series of keywords with other keywords inside parenthesis.

- DO NOT look at these text files unless you want to have the storyline revealed to you.

If you manage to translate all of the game, send the files back to us and we'll post your "language pack" online. Please note that this will only translate the external text of the game, not the internally generated messages or graphic files (such as signs or some menus). We will address these other translations later as we prepare the game for more generalized modification. However, the majority of the "important" text (quests, dialogs, books and skill/magick descriptions) are right here in these text files, so translating these will make the game fully playable by non-English speaking people of your region.

More information.

Would've been nice to benefit from this with the previous iterations… !

Basilisk Games became an expert in enthralling gamers with hypnotic music, hoarding better and better loot, nice art direction and excellent portraits.

For their next game with Unity 3D there will be a lot of problems with graphics not looking good enough [if they allow a rotating camera] and animations not convincing enough. Unless they hire the proper talent[s] for both fields.

You know, I've kinda panned E:B3 but I'm still playing it after a week so I'll make a retraction. This game is still short, but it's a lot of fun and ultimately worth the $20. I find myself starting over and trying various strategies and there are a couple exploits that allow you to "test" a ton of the skills, once you know where the trainers are and what quests need to be done to unlock their teaching.

Is this notably better than B2? I hardly spent any time on that and just didn't find it engaged me very much.
