Main Menu is gone after generating the translation

#1 Post by neometalero » Thu Jul 25, 2019 12:22 pm

My main menu text is gone after the translation files are generated, any idea about what is going on?
If I delete the file the menu gets back to normal.

While creating translation files you have an option to create an empty strings or not (strings would be in original language).

Anyway, you'll have to open those translation files to write the translation down.

You clicked to create a translation, and before that, you clicked on the Select Language button.

Whatever happens when you create translations write them with a capital letter.

Example:

Create Translation> Russian

and you wrote

Create Translation> russian

When you finish the translation, rename the folder to a small letter. And having changed the language, you will have a native language, and the language into which you translated.

Or simply in the Renpy launcher, select the action Clear permanent data. The game will load with the default language.

Tks for all the answers, the solution in the end was to uncheck the box Generate Empty string for translation , that solved my problem.
