    Neither are we planing to drag the current players from here to the other Server, nor are we planing to replace this one with another one. It wouldnt be online for 10 Years if we'd just replace it in a heartbeat.

  • [GM]Elspeth

    We have stated multiple times that we are not planing to replace anything. Thats why this is also the wrong place to discuss things about the second Server.

  • Fivel

    im just worried about playing on a server that might soon be "replaced" so to say. Is that so hard to comprehend? Many people think like that ingame, i thought this was the place to discuss it

  • Fivel

    relax it was just an idea, sorry for discussing things in a forum

  • vvvvvv

    I think your idea about the whole server doesn't really matter and you should let them mind their own business and let them work on their own project. Just wait till it's released and I'm pretty sure that you won't complain about it if they've decided to put so much effort into it.

  • Fivel

    I think the second server should be a "1 IP/oldschool" server that would be treated as a nice getaway from the main server. Something to play on the side, not abandoning the main server

  • Fivel

    Aren't you worried it's gonna drive the people that are currently playing on SG away from the main server?

  • Fivel

    So the new server will be handled as a seperate project? I thought it was an attempt to introduce people to the SG servers.

  • EmyEmy

    Bloody kids

  • EmyEmy

    Patience is virtue ! Just wait it will come omg

  • [CoMa]Shadow

    We are working on it daily and we already announced it will take some months, if waiting is a problem we understand, but we won't release it sooner just because some people cannot wait sorry

  • [CoMa]Shadow

    You have a lack of respect because we always answered your question, even today, we told you where you could get informations. 2 days ago i personaly told you the server 2 will have its own forum/website, so not sure what else you want more

  • S3ke

    so you`re saying i have lack of respect because i ask about YOUR server ? because i want to play YOUR server ?you are being a lil rude on almost every post recently.. lack of patience ? well you just lost another player then ...thank you.

  • [CoMa]Shadow

    We already provided the informations on the epvp thread, asking here every day is quite silly other than a lack of respect since we already kindly asked to not ask here

  • S3ke

    ok so where can i search information about it then ? this whole thing makes no sense ...its almost like you are hiding it from the people .....

  • AnarchistPagan

    Well, sure. Without a graphical improvement metin2 will never meet new players at metin2 in general. But the old players that are still playing metin (on all the existing servers) are more than enough to call it a dead game.

  • [GM]Elspeth

    The announcements of Server2 wont happen here so this is the wrong place to search for Information about it.

  • S3ke

    hey is that s2 still happening ? its been a while ...and nothing...

    them* cant even edit!

    before years, sg said we need more chinese players if we need chinese language, now its enough or more than half maybe (and tp-buyers also)



    I heard that SG will prepare to update for adding Chinese language, is that true?

  • We already explained you why Chinese language won't be add ingame.


    First of all none of us is Chinese, we could pay some external translator but we won't know if it will be a google translator work or a good work, even because the words of Metin2 are not really common daily words, such as Gnoll, Yamachon or whatever.


    So we would need someone to whom we can interact daily to translate and is not a 10 minutes job. The last request to translate that we have got,, was to translate the game in Greek, some players offered to do it, but in the end was a disappointment as they ghosted as soon as we showed 10% of the files to translate. As far as I know you or any other players never proposed to translate, but only demanded the client translated.


    The second reason and also most important is that the client can't support chinese character.

    I googled translate this but if we insert it on the client it would look like this


    d66cc6cdc7.jpg


    I doubt this is ok and you can't expect us to remove 8 language just to leave Chinese. I am not aware if there is a way to write in Chinese by using english alphabet, but unless there isn't, we can't do much about it.


    I hope you understand now why your request cannot be granted.

  • To represent Latin and Chinese character, UTF 8 could be used. However, don't know whether Metin2 allows using UTF-8 encoding.


    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/UTF-8

  • If you managed to play in English since start till now, you can simply continue like this.


    There isn't my native language either, but I never complained about it. Playing in English client gives you chance to improve this language for good.

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/UTF-8

    The client doesn't support UTF-8, this is why every local have its own encode.

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chinese_character_encoding


    "English" : ["1252", "sg"],

    "Italian" : ["1252", "it"],

    "Spanish" : ["1252", "es"],

    "Portuguese": ["1252", "pt"],

    "German" : ["1252", "de"],

    "Turkish" : ["1254", "tr"],

    "Romanian" : ["852", "ro"],

    "Polish" : ["1250", "pl"],

    We currently support these encodes, but PL TR and Ro have some issues with certain letters such as:


    Ă Î


    which were just translated as A and I otherwise you would see gibberish in their place. In the case of Chinese, every letter becomes gibberish once encoded using chinese characters.

  • it’s about the font not the encode


    Tahoma codepages:


    If we want to use chinese characters we have to find a font with chinese code page included in it.

    Link: 939 codepage [Wikipedia]

    Quote

    UI_DEF_FONT_SMALL = "掉葡羹:9"

    UI_DEF_FONT_LARGE = "掉葡羹:16"

    UI_DEF_FONT = "掉葡羹:12"

    from chinese Metin2 client

    What a great argument. He asked about this topic several times now, and it seems he is not asking for himself but his friends. Not every country teaches english in school and thinks it is as important. Even german players who are suppose to know english struggle when they did not set their game to german. Just because you never complained no one else is allowed to, right? Apparently not having chinese compromises their gameplay enough to complain about it. Take your useless opinion somewhere else and don't post meaningless stuff under suggestions and questions.

    PS: learning englisch thrue metin2 is pretty much impossible. Writing with players maybe. But metin2 quest texts etc.? Not very likely.

  • "we need this and this language bcs we are a lot of mallers" best reason in 2k19

    The best reason a game developer would ever change anything is profit. So yes you are correct. If adding chinese language means they invest even more we all profit from this. Very complex concept but I think even you can understand this. And the list of players pretty long imo, so it is worth discussing.

  • first stop spamming, second, grab a book and start learn.


    PS: i convinced myself. Only 1 guy from your hole guild spend money here, so in game please don't come with arguments like : We all spend lots of REAL money, NO!you don't, we all know who spend money from your guild, dear entrepreneurs.

    PS2: Stop killing server dude, for your own good, soon you gonna play along with your hole entrepreneurs guild.

    Bye bye

    1) make a bet? lol

    2) who killing server? (u? who didnt spend $1 here?)

  • But chinese=symbols so i dont get how 'font' helps with that?


    Btw there are chinese metin 2 servers lets just copy from them :D

    1) bro lets learn programming xd)

    To display both Chinese and English is possible.

    If we want to display Chinese correctly, we have to use locale_newcibn or locale_cibn10,

    In locale_game:


    "I am not lost, I am on my way!"

  • You ignored everything i said. Our game is not translated only in english. There are 7 languages. We are not going to remove turk or romanian to make Chinese available.

    How about that:

    We can "force" client codepage by using "@" sign

    someone using tahoma in client and it doesn't have 939 codepage so he tested it on korean 949 one.

    Also remember that the locale_game.txt and locale_interface.txt in locale must have chinese encoding

  • Hi dear mfker ,

    I appreciate your passion and your technical advices but, since we are already supporting seven different languages, don't you think that we should be already aware about how to manage encoding issues?


    We decided to not support chinese language and this is not just for a technical problem. It's mainly a management issue that we cannot overcome at the moment.

    I hope that you and the chinese community will understand this and will accept our apologies because this is our final decision.


    I wish you a nice day and a good game experience.
