Excuse me, I would like to determine a few things. First of all, are you trying to apply the English patch v3.3 to the Steam version of New PAL? If so, I should say that is impossible. This patch works only for the PC versions of the original PAL game (the Sega Saturn version is not supported yet), not the New PAL. Secondly, do you wish to port this English translation to New PAL? If so, you need to find the technical methods of exporting and importing back the text resource of New PAL game. Last but not least, please note that the New PAL is totally different from the original PAL game.

Sorry for the misunderstanding. I am trying to make this work with the steam version https://sites.google.com/site/fairyswordinfo/home
This is newpal XP I think
And I can see that the files are compatible since they did override most files in the Stem version and even replace some simple sentencesinto English
It seems that the problem is that long sentences cant be translated without me launching it via the Palgame_eng.exe provided in the English patch
But whenever I try to launch it I get the following messege:
"binksetvolume@8 cannot be located in the dynamic link library binkw32.dll"
I have tried all possible ways I could find on the net to correct this
But nothing worked sofar
I have bought the game for this.

Got it. Let us talk about New PAL things only. As I know, the Steam New PAL is a newly ported version. It is not the same as the 2001 version. So it is not surprising you had such problems. In fact, it is already amazing that you could still see some translated text when you start the game with the Steam version exe. Since technical research of New PAL is not directly related to the target of SDLPal project, perhaps you could consult the New PAL translator.

I allready did contact them, waiting for an answer

I guess the messege you got means... you don't have the correct binkw32.dll in your system(C:\WINDOWS\system32) or New PAL folder. Is the Steam version still using BINK Video?
Unknown128
@Unknown1281_twitter
I doubt that, but the English patch seems to assume it.
Maybe the key would be to get a non steam earlier version of XP?
Since I have bought a version allready I would feel no guilt about getting one for free

"I guess the messege you got means... you don't have the correct binkw32.dll in your system(C:\WINDOWS\system32) or New PAL folder. Is the Steam version still using BINK Video?" I dont know,I tried everything to fix that bug but it is still there.

Palgame_eng.exe requires certain version(s) of binkw32.dll to play BINK Video movies. It looks like You do not have it.

Any idea where I could get it? Sadly the developer of the translation has not answered meand it seems that they are no longer active.

@PalMusicFan
Well, since we have no idea which version the New PAL 2001 came with, maybe you should try various versions. There are certain dll download sites, but I can't guarantee the reliability of the dll files.

Ok I did try out 20 binkw32.dll till it gaveanother error messege. Then I tried out several Mss.32.dll till it finaly opened astart menu. sadly when I launched the game trough said menu I only got the Softstar logo after which it crashed. It seems the Steam version and the translation are incompatible. Sad after so much work.

OK. Now we could go back to Steam EXE. What do you see when using the Steam EXE? Please post some
screenshots.

ok so
while in the screenshots from the translation it should look like this:
image.png
As you can see the description for this one item is in english (but most are in chinese).
In Screenshots from the tranlation its clear that it all should be translated, instead only a small part is translated.
A few dialogues are translated:

Most though are not (and it does not seem to be connected to sieze, some short ones are untranslated while some long ones are translated).

At first I thought thats just how much the patch translates.
But then I looked at some screenshots and videos of the patch and saw that it translates much more.
I did also manege to make the english patch exe to run.
But sadly its just older graphics, no music and absolutly the same very small amount of translated text.

If the amount of translation is the same, we may need to consider more issues. Have you used that LSF tool set? It seems that it can be used to view existing translations and continue to translate new content.

@Unknown1281_twitter
I did try but I cant make sense of it
Unknown128
@Unknown1281_twitter
Ok I did look at it more closly.
Its indeed mostly Chinese
very little in English
only some text in talk1
the rest is chinese
in all versions the amount of translated text is the same
all thats different is the sieze of the "Palgame_eng" file

@PalMusicFan
Let us start new game with the Steam EXE. What do you see in the first act of Li Xiaoyao's Dream? Note that there is a conversation without translation here. After Li Xiaoyao got up, are the dialogues in the inn in English?
