    6666Being able to test translations in the GUI while they are being worked on is something many have requested. The translation file are parsed into [http://msdn2.microsoft.com/en-us/library/aa380599.aspx .RC script] files which are compiled into DLLs. This means that in order to test a translation you need to be able to generate that final DLL which Halite can use. I have tried to put together a small package to automate this whole process for non-developers.

    68 Download and extract [http://www.binarynotions.com/halite/Translation.070527.7z archive]. You will end up with two folders- {{{res}}} is a snapshot of the current Halite resource sourcecode and {{{lang}}{ is a folder containing the current translations as well as some of the utilities needed to compile the translations into DLLs. Unfortunatly I can't really distribute all the necessary tools because to copyright issues and such. Thankfully the additional files necessary are freely available online.

    7070What you need is the MS resource compiler, {{{rc.exe}}}, the linker {{{link.exe}}}, a tiny tool {{{cvtres.exe}}} and their support DLLs. These are available from a number of locations of which I'll list two here.
