Moderators

There are senior members on the forums who serve as Moderators. These volunteers keep the board organized and moving.
Moderators are authorized to: (in order of increasing severity)
Move posts to the correct forums. Many times, members post in the wrong forum. These off-topic posts may impede the normal operation of the forum.
Edit posts. Moderators will edit posts that are offensive or break any of the House Rules.
Delete posts. Posts that cannot be edited to comply with the House Rules will be deleted.
Restrict members. This is one of the last punishments before a member is banned. Restrictions may include placing all new posts in a moderation queue or temporarily banning the offender.
Ban members. The most severe punishment. Three or more moderators or administrators must agree to the ban for this action to occur. Banning is reserved for very severe offenses and members who, after many warnings, fail to comply with the House Rules. Banning is permanent. Bans cannot be removed by the moderators and probably won't be removed by the administration.


The Rules

1. Warez, copyright violation, or any other illegal activity may NOT be linked or expressed in any form. Topics discussing techniques for violating these laws and messages containing locations of web sites or other servers hosting illegal content will be silently removed. Multiple offenses will result in consequences. File names are not required to discuss your issues. If filenames are copyright then do not belong on these forums & will be edited out or post removed. Picture sample attachments in posts must not include copyright infringement.

2. Spamming and excessive advertising will not be tolerated. Commercial advertising is not allowed in any form, including using in signatures.

3. There will be no excessive use of profanity in any forum.

4. There will be no racial, ethnic, or gender based insults, or any other personal attacks.

5. Pictures may be attached to posts and signatures if they are not sexually explicit or offensive. Picture sample attachments in posts must not include copyright infringement.

7. If you see a post in the wrong forum or in violation of the House Rules, please contact a moderator via Private Message or the "Report this post to a moderator" link at the bottom of every post. Please do not respond directly to the member - a moderator will do what is required.

8. Any impersonation of a forum member in any mode of communication is strictly prohibited and will result in banning.

9. Multiple copies of the same post will not be tolerated. Post your question, comment, or complaint only once. There is no need to express yourself more than once. Duplicate posts will be deleted with little or no warning. Keep in mind a forum censor may temporarily automatically hold up your post, if you do not see your post, do not post again, it will be dealt with by a moderator within a reasonable time. Authors of multiple copies of same post may be dealt with by moderators within their discrete judgment at the time which may result in warning or infraction points, depending on severity as adjudged by the moderators online.

10. Posts should have descriptive topics. Vague titles such as "Help!", "Why?", and the like may not get enough attention to the contents.

11. Do not divulge anyone's personal information in the forum, not even your own. This includes e-mail addresses, IP addresses, age, house address, and any other distinguishing information. Don´t use eMail addresses in your nick. Reiterating, do not post your email address in posts. This is for your own protection.

12. Signatures may be used as long as they are not offensive or sexually explicit or used for commercial advertising. Commercial weblinks cannot be used under any circumstances and will result in an immediate ban.

13. Dual accounts are not allowed. Cannot explain this more simply. Attempts to set up dual accounts will most likely result in a banning of all forum accounts.

14. Video links may only be posted after you have a tally of two forum posts. Video link posting with less than a 2 post tally are considered as spam. Video link posting with less than a 2 post tally are considered as spam.

15. Failure to show that you have read the forum rules may result in forum rules breach infraction points or warnings awarded against you which may later total up to an automatic temporary or permanent ban. Supplying system details is a prerequisite in most cases, particularly with connection or installation issues.

Violation of any of these rules will bring consequences, determined on a case-by-case basis.


Thank You! Thanks for taking the time to read these forum guidelines. We hope your visit is helpful and mutually beneficial to the entire community.

arne_bab is a great assister to others; your light through the dark tunnel
Default How to localize Phex 2.0

There is a language file, which can be translated relatively simply.

It needs to be in the folder $phex/ext
$Phex is the folder with the jars).

There should then also be a file named language.list. That file simply contains a list of languages in the format [lang]_[country]. For example: en_US or de_DE.

You need to add dutch (I don't know the short form for it).

You also need to rename the lang.properties file.
For the german file it would be lang_de_DE.properties.
For dutch it is Lang_nl_NL.properties.

I hope this all is correct...

I attach the lang.properties file (you need to rename it from lang.txt, the forum won't take .properties files).

Nice one Arne

I just Downloaded the file and I will have a closer look later.
At first glance it looks simple to do.

Question

Hello Arne,

I use Windows (2K) and in my Phex folder I see no Language files.
I even searched in the .jar files but nothing.
In the programme, under options there is also no choise for another language just US english.
Perhaps the Windows installer does not install the language option ?

You need to add a folder named "lang" in the same folder as the jar-files. Then add the folder "resources" inside that folder and put the files there.

Seems we have to ask the developer about this.

Did you add nl_NL in a new line to the language.list file?

Arne's description was correct except for the folder name. The files should be just in the $PHEX/lang folder.

I repeat the steps in a short summary again:
  • Create a file $PHEX/lang/language.list and add a single line nl_NL
    This file is used to build the language list in the UI.
  • Create a file $PHEX/lang/Lang_nl_NL.properties or $PHEX/lang/Lang_nl.properties and translate the text in it.
  • The order Phex uses to search for translations is nl_NL, then nl and then it will fallback to use the default english language file. The first found translation will be used.

Gregor

Hmpf.. Just found a tiny bug... your translated file will not be displayed even if you have the correct configuration.
I will release a fix very soon.

OK thanks for your info Gregor, I hope you can easely fix it.

BTW ,
This is what's in the lang.list file:

en_US
nl_NL

Should there be a single line for every language, or just one for NL ?

Your lang.list should be named language.list

There should be a single line for every language but you dont need to specify languages, which are already by default inside Phex, like en_US.

So your language.list needs just one single line:
nl_NL

It was a easy fix, just a missing "/". As soon as I have time I will compile and publish the release.


EDIT: To get around hassle of creating a new release for this little fix, everybody who is interested in the localization fix can contact me by mail or pm to get it.
