Very nice program! Two things, though:
1. It doesn't work on my Win98SE (Swedish version). Gives me "Runtime error '5' Invalid procedure call or argument"
2. Works OK on my WinXP. But does not show our Swedish umlauts correctly.
I am eagerly waiting for the next version ...

O.P. RE: Messenger Plus! Translator
First of all, I want to thank you, all the translators and all the people who have donwloaded my program, for do that and test it. I really appreciate very much everithing you've said. :)
----
Well. I've just finished a new release of the program (1.0.5). When I finish posting this, I'll update the attachment file of the first post of this thread. Please, read the following:
  • The program uses unicode-enabled API's that are found only in Windows NT/2K/XP, so the program won't work under Windows 9x/Me. Lief, you'll have to use it with XP, not 98.
  • The program uses a RichTextBox control, so you'll need, apart from msvbvm60.dll and mscomctl.ocx files, the richtx32.ocx file.
  • The program uses the "Arial Unicode MS" font, which I think it's distributed with Windows (NT/2K/XP). That font has all the Unicode characters, so you'll be able to see international chars like , accents , umlauts , and chars from complex languages, like Chinese Simplified. If you don't have that font, you'd better get it :p (it's "only" 22.1 Mb in my WinXP).
  • To display that complex characters and write them back to the Lang_*.ini file, I've implemented a very reduced RTF reader & writer. RTF is a text specification, so I may have done some mistakes. If the program doesn't behave like it should, pealse, run it with some parameter and try to reproduce the error. There will be a debug window that shows the RTF code. I'll apreciate it very much.
  • The RichTextBox control is able to show different fonts, show text in blod, italics, underlined, different sizes, etc... If you want the program to work well do not use copy-paste from text-processors like Word, because when the program will parse the RTF code may write wrong things. And do not try to format any text inside that control, for the same reason. Just type your translation and let the program work.
  • I think that the right-to-left languages (like Arabic) aren't displayed correctly, but i can't do much more without someone who tell me how it sould be shown. The text that displays my program, is what it should be? a bit different? very much different? Also, try to write a text, and send me the RTF code.
  • The program hasn't been tested very much and it can have bugs. Please, don't test it with the original files in Messenger Plus! folder, make back-ups :D

    As long as Patchou don't modify the format of the DefaultLg.dat and Lang_*.ini files (which is a standar Windows format), my program should handle well (as well as it does it now) any new version.

    Thanks. I only use API functions to read the files, so my program should be as fast as Windows could be.
  • I think I don't forget anything. I hope you'll like the program. Enjoy it!
Once more, thanks to everybody:refuck:

RE: Messenger Plus! Translator
Well, Choli, good news and bad news.
The good is the Chinese words are showed correctly, and while typing Chinese words, it has no problem.
The bad is...After I click on save, the save operation performs wrong. Instead of the correct Chinese words, it writes two bytes of ANSI Code(like ) for one Chinese word.

If you have questions about this just ask me...:D

I've witten it in VB6 so you'll probably need these files: msvbvm60.dll and mscomctl.ocx. If you don't have them and if the admins/mods allow me, I can upload them (about 993 Kb compressed).


I'm still waiting, I wanna test it :gfdrin:
