Hi all,

after a long time I can proudly announce that the translation of the Beyond Divnity (demo) on Linux guide is ready !

Please report me all mistakes (grammar, spelling) and all what I forgot to wrote! <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/winkwink.gif" alt="" /> <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/wave.gif" alt="" />

@mods: it is possible to make this topic steaky ?

Barta, give Linux a try <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/winkwink.gif" alt="" />

Is there an interest of a translation in other languages (dutch, french, ...) ?

If somebody will translate my description I can publish it on my site !

Sorry i am very bad with computers and i already had a lot of difficulties to get used with windows.
So i am scared and also lazy to try Linux.
But i don't say that i will never try it !

Yes i can help you for a translation in french.

About trying Linux, is there a good way to do it (without sacrifiseing that Win XP pro which you payed just the heck of a lot of money for)?

The easiest way to try Linux without repartitioning your hard drive (or adding another) would probably be to use a distribution that boots directly off of a CD. Some of these can use a USB key drive to store settings.

CD-based Linux Distributions and Live Linux CDs


Some versions of Linux can also be installed to a file on your hard drive, so no repartitioning is needed, though this does require a bit more elabourate setup and tweaking. In Mandrake, for example, there is an option in the partition utility (advanced mode) to create a file and use it as a loopback device (the file acts as a virtual Linux partition). Near the end of the install there is an option to set up a boot manager, which you can have written to a floppy (assuming you have a floppy drive) rather than your hard drive, so you can boot the computer with the floppy inserted to either get a boot menu or go straight to Linux, or without the floppy to boot into Windows.

This would be great ! Send me the translated text in a PM or mail, I will put it on my website and notify you if it is ready <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/winkwink.gif" alt="" />

Can you please add a note that any request for support should only in English or German because my language skill in French is zero <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/disagree.gif" alt="" />

And I must agree with Raze: It is quite easy. Burn a CD or DVD with a Live Linux System, I prefer Knoppix, reboot your system and boot from CD / DVD.

The big advantage of a Live Linux System is: You can backup / restore / repair (in most cases) your whole windows system without booting it <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/winkwink.gif" alt="" />

Hi Xanlosch

Sorry for being late but i had a lot of work during the last weeks.
I have finished the translation but i want to read it again.
I will send it to you in a mail tomorrow.
I guess that there would be a problem with the links.

Divine Divinity and Beyond Divinity are two games made by Larian Studios.

Near the top of each forum index page, there is a button to post a new topic (your question does not appear to be related to the BD demo under Linux). Check out the forum FAQ.
