First public relase!
Edit: Sadly, I've already found uploads with authors removed from strings.txt. That's why README, strings_eng.txt and strings_pl.txt contains now additional lines. Nothing has changed in the plugin itself.
Is your language officially supported by PSP?
If not, and you really wanted to have XMB translated, you had to choose: themes from the community, or rare, translated themes (or just orginal RCOs with replaced texts) from your local PSP forums, etc.
You're not alone!
I had the same problem. In fact I saw some translated community themes (like "ClearXMB"), but the themes I really wanted to have weren't.
That's the reason why I've created this plugin.
What my stuff does is really simple:
Paxor3 allows you to build "language pack", with all strings you want to replace from XMB.
Plugin uses it then to replace strings on-the-fly in memory, without touching RCO files or .ctf themes at all.
That means you can use theoretically EVERY theme you want, switch between them (as cxmb allows you to), download new, remove old... and XMB will always be translated!
For proof, here are some screenshots. First one is always from orginal PSP's theme, the second is from Flower.
The Polish text database was done especially for my plugin by krzychuuu and Erokesha. I want to say thank you guyz!
Translating ~700kb of English text is not a really easy task...
Why the competition logo is not in the archive? Because I've included it in XMB. Check "About PSP" >:D
Let's look how we can build that "language pack".
In the archive you have:
-english strings, so you can focus on translating instead of hunting for complete database
-polish translated strings. I doubt anyone here is Polish, so treat that as "demo" what you can do with the plugin
-sample small strings which I have used to do the first screenshot in the thread
It works on: 5.00 cfw, 5.03 cfw, 5.50 cfw, 6.20 hen/cfw, 6.35, and 6.39.
