Hello again. I would like to make all harcoded English messages external and put them into a properties file so that translation of Stendhal to other languages is made easier and does not force to recompile after a translation. What should I do to join Arianne's depelopers community? I have professional experience in JAVA (J2EE, mysql also) but have never used CVS.
You seem to have CSS turned off.
Please don't fill out this field.
you may want to read the how-to-join-arainne just to get warm :)
In fact, it is very easy to join arianne. Get a fresh copy of marauroa (the framework) and stenhal (the server/client) and start coding. Once you think your task has evolved so it can be committed to cvs you just submit a patch to
Most communication is handled over the developer mailing list, so you should subscribe there.
Thats all ;) If you got a question just send it to the dev-mailing list.
Before all, thanks. I have seen little to no movement in the mailing list, is it due to Christmas celebrations or didn't I join the devel list correctly?
I will do my best and try to collaborate, if my everyday job allows me to :).
Stendhal was build as a test of Marauroa ( and has served its purpouse perfectly ), but has overrun the initial objetive and it has become a fun and potentially good game.
So, everything is really hardcoded ugly done on Stendhal ( most of it, although we are refactoring ). Messages can be placed on a text file or in a XML file, but for example chats with NPC are build based on scripts, and they are not easily changeable.
I will have a look to it, but really I think it is not a priority right now.
