The Ren'Py Quickstart Manual --- in Japanese!

#1 Post by Ivlivs » Sun Sep 09, 2007 6:23 pm

When randomly surfing on the net, I came across this little gem from the "Anobota Depot."

Yes, it is PyTom's very own Quickstart Manual for Ren'Py. It even translates a bit of "The Question" while explaining the examples. You can view the page in Japanese only, in English only, or with both languages side-by-side.

Now if only other Ren'py stuff would get translated...then again, Renpy is quite English-biased (I don't mean it as an insult or anything, just stating a fact.) So, to erode a little bit of that bias, here is a kana converter I made for this beautiful VN engine:
hiragana.rpy
(13.61 KiB) Downloaded 144 times
katakana.rpy
(13.6 KiB) Downloaded 127 times
dashkata.rpy
(14.57 KiB) Downloaded 120 times
Keep in mind that I am still very much a novice at Python.

I'd say it's more western biased then english-biased, although it does hurt from the fact that English the only natural language I know well. (And from the way Python does unicode, with the u''.) I'm trying to remove biases, but some are inherent in the libraries I use. (I'd love to have input method support, but it's not in pygame or SDL, last time I checked.)

Could you possibly post the kana converter to the cookbook in the wiki, so others can use it?

Don't worry about a thing. I figured that the inability to enter kana directly was a limitation inherent in the software.

I will post the code to the Cookbook as fast as I can.

Pretty cool, coming up with something like that. Someday, when I'm feeling completely insane, I'll translate those converters to Korean.

Code posted in the Cookbook.

I'm glad to be of assistance. :)
