Abbey of Crime english version
« on: 2021.January.09. 21:55:23 »
I was recently looking at this:
http://www.cpcwiki.eu/forum/games/la-abadia-del-crimen-the-abbey-of-crime-finally-in-english!/

It's a very nice adventure game, I know that it has been already converted by geco in 2014 from the original spanish version (Abadia del Crimen), but since 2017 the Amstrad community has released a new version, completely translated to english...

Could this also be ported? It would be a very nice addition to the EP collection, as it is an excellent game and much more players could enjoy it in english language...

:cool:

"La Abadía del Crimen"("The Abey of crime") is based on the "Name of the Rose" book(at the time of the release of the film based on it) from the late Italian writer Umberto Eco.

The creators of the game asked him to use the novel's title, but they were not authorized, so they took instead the preliminary book's name.

Yes, the dialogs and all texts/messages of the game. But there are also some changed graphics, like the loading screen which displays the title in english...
Could you please, please, please try to do it, when you have the time?
I suppose that it won't be very difficult for you, as you have already done all the work with the original spanish version...

Yes, that's why this game is so exciting! The book is a masterpiece, the movie was great, the game is splendid. Very atmospheric, quite playable, excellent graphics... Must be one of the best games of its kind, IMHO even better than the fabulous Fairlight...
Pity that Umberto Eco did not give the permission to the authors to use "The Name of the Rose" as title, he had nothing to lose... I suspect he was against computers and technology back then...

The coolest solution in the game would be to hack the loader:

SELECT LANGUAGE:

1 - ENGLISH
2 - SPANISH

Only Wizard's Lair uses such an option when starting the game, there you can choose from 3 languages. It is very rare for retro computer games.
100 SOUND SOURCE 3,STYLE 16,LEFT 16,RIGHT 64,SYNC 2
110 SOUND SOURCE 2,STYLE 128,PITCH 25.2,SYNC 2
120 SOUND PITCH 25,SYNC 2

I checked today Abadia, and you knocked on open doors :-D
The conversion is English, only the name remained spanish on loading screen, and score display contains 2  spanish words.
