    Sadly, can't provide any screenshots because I'm a dumbass and can't seem to find where the screenshots are saved. Location in Salt Lake City, specifically Resurrection Square. The NPC is the child who's crying and looking for his dog, the dog is the one in the waste dump behind Nuka Cola Factory, and if you kill the dog and take her tag, you can bring it to the child and then the partially translated options would appear.

    Maybe I should the save file instead?

    Ok so a few dumb questions but,
    1. What is Fallout:Nevada Crazy Edition and should I play it instead of the original?
    2. How in the world do I install the English patch, cause I suck at this stuff?

    Well, the translation team provides only the original and we translate specifically for that version. CE adds some more things but I know nothing about it personally.
    You will find what to do in Readme file after you download the patch from my signature.

    Hi everyone. Downloaded and installed Crazy Edition 3.4 and the MASTER.DAT and f2_res.dat files are "DAT files" and when I try to transfer the folders it says "There is already a file with the same name as the folder you specified"

    I tried changing the names of the English trans folders to MASTER1.DAT and f2_res1.dat and tried starting a new game but everything's still in Russian. Any tips?

    Yes you're right the dog cannot be interacted with, it goes wild after it gets free, there are options, kill it, or leave it be. There is no way to return the dog.
    I translated what was missing, and edited the text. Give it a spin.

    The translation has been fully restored, but for some reason option 1 and 2 in the dialogue box spell out the exact same words and sentences. Basically, things about the dog not wanting to be chained and stuff like that.

    Anyway, kind of an odd quest compared to the rest of the game. Either you can lie to the child about the dog being eaten, or kill the dog and present the dogtag to the child. The walkthrough doesn't seem to know more solution to this quest. Considering the dialogue option we have, about the dog sniffing with wild dogs and having her instinct taking over, maybe I should try killing the other dogs and leave the collared dog alone?

    I deleted folder/file name in Russian CE version and transferred translation folders in there. Game crashes on launch

    Yes a small odd "quest", I can't fix the double option, it's something scripted and I'm not good with scripts. But I edited it heavily, so it's not broken English anymore.

    Just overwrite it... Don't delete anything! Reinstall and do everything again.

    Hmmm.. It does not allow me to overwrite.
    Instead it says "There is already a file with the same name as the folder you specified"
    Is it possible to convert the folders into DAT files or vice versa?

    So it's only the 3.0 version that has folders instead of DAT files? I have 3.4 right now and am unable to overwrite files with folders

    So it's confirmed only 3.0 has usable folders? Maybe they updated 3.0 to have those files too.

    You can still overwrite the contents of the DATA folder with the content of the master.dat folder. Beware though as you don't want to overwrite everything - the most apparent example I can think of is the intrface folder, which isn't safe to overwrite with the current translation, because Crazy Edition makes a lot of additions to the interface.

    I 'll say it again . Translation only works with 1.02HD version of nevada. CE changes so many things ( as you discovered it has even different directory structure) so expect a lot of russian text, bugs crashes and many more.


    On an unrelated note, I finally finished nevada , pure pleasure . Thanks so much Dionis and Company. Cheers

    Also make sure you've copied the translations fix for Crazy Edition.

    I've been playing with the latest translation, copying only the translated dialog and little else, and the Crazy Edition patch, and I have yet to find Russian text besides the ones mentioned in the thread and any that may have been added by Crazy Edition, and haven't experience any crashes or any outstanding bugs. As long as you know which files can be safely overwritten and make backups, everything works as it should.
