Thanks for the feedback on the voice files. If you have anything more specific that you think would turn them from "... fair" to good, do tell. I'm always eager for constructive criticism.

@ E_Net4: All done, and found another relic of German correcting them. It may have been the one you couldn't remember.

Well, great. And I hope you found out the "Feder" as the name of the feather and the typo on the coconut ("shall" instead of "shell").

As you can read here, no, there isn't. And I am not interested in burdening myself with that in addition...
I guess Bizzl, the creator of the mod, will make an English version when the gold version (1.0) of Stranded II is out.
Always keeping up with DC's speed of development of is a Sisyphus' work.

there will be an english version either with the Gold Version of S2 or if someone will volunteer as translator. It is hard to handle all the stuff myself, sry.

I made it to the End! WII!
But you forgot to translate it.
By the way, sorry for overloading you with translation errors.

Yargh! Indeed. Fixed.
Thank you for overloading me with translation errors. They're welcome at any time.
I think it's time for a new version - there are enough changes to make it worth downloading.

HOW TO INSTALL STRANDED II ENGLISH 0.1.0.0 B
----------
First get the German basic game:

>> Stranded 0.1.0.0 < [12 MB]

... then download and execute the mod's installer:

>> Stranded 0.1.0.0 B in English < [0,8 MB]

the speech files are in this extra archive that you just have to extract into the main folder (after executing the installer, overwriting the previous files):

>> English speech files < [0,9 MB]

Contact me here if you find mistakes.

Hello, there. I'm having some problems using the English translation patch, and I'm hoping you could help me. Here's what's happening:

First, I install the game to, say, "C:\Games\Stranded 2". Then I take the english patch, and extract it into the same directory (so that "Stranded II English.exe" is in the same directory as "StrandedII.exe"). At this point, I cannot help but notice that a DOS window nameds "setup_s2eng" that opened up to display some extracting and/or copying processes failed to close - the text in it ends with:

"91 files copied
Invalid switch - /S"

Anyway, I close this window and run "Stranded II English.exe". Instead of the game starting, I get an error message about an illegal operation (Details display: Exception no. eedfadeH in module <unknown> at address 0000:00000000). I click Close on the error message, and immediately get another error message, this one saying "Exception EInOutError in module STRANDED II ENGLISH.EXE at 00062FF9. File not found." I click OK on that, and I'm back to the operating system.

All the while, the German version runs just fine with no problems - but I don't understand it.

I'd be grateful for any insight into the problem.

PS: If it's relevant, I'm using Win98.

It is possible that this switch does not exist in xcopy on Win9x.

That's because the starter expects a file startup.cfg in mods/Stranded II English/sys with the settings. But since your installation crashed it isn't present (the mod wouldn't work either, since there is obviously more missing)

Here is my temporary solution:
•Install WinRar. I think it still has Win9x-Support.
•Rightclick the file s2eng0100b.exe -> "Open with WinRar"
•Extract the files somewhere into your Stranded II Directory (e.g. C:\Games\Stranded II)
•Close WinRar. Open your Stranded II Directory
•Go to "mods". Copy "Stranded II" to "Stranded II English"
•Go back, then Go to "_setup"
•Select All. Then use Ctrl+X or Rightclick->Cut
•Go back, then Go to "mods" again and further to "Stranded II English"
•Ctrl+V or Rightclick->Paste
•Confirm any messages with "Yes" or "Yes, all"
•Go back to your Stranded II Directory
•Delete "setup_s2eng.bat" and "_setup"
•run "Stranded II English.exe"
That should do the work.

I am sorry that my script doesn't work on old Windows, I'll see what can be done to change this soon.

What did you do with the installer, exactly?
Is the starter in the same directory as the main executable of S2?
Is there an stranded icon in the tray?

If it's the last thing, just right click it and choose "Close & Kill" or something, or simply press Ctrl+F10. That should terminate it.
