Ok, so they've decided not to post the daily questions anymore. What about the weekly updates on Wednesdays? Are they stopping too? I don't think I can cope with a total news blackout!

Yes, as the sticky says, no more info for a while. The dev-team has to concentrate on the game - hopefully to complete the demo http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

NotFromSpain? Well, you don't know what are you losing. I think that it wasn't necessary. I suppose you know what are you doing. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_rolleyes.gif

About your main question: yes, life is hard, but if you want the Devs to make things right at this decisive stage of developement, you'll have to live without daily nor weekly questions, and of course, without demo. I do it. I am very patient. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

"I suppose you know what are you doing"
There's a hint of a threat concealed in that statement. Get over yourself mate.

Nothing like stiring up a bit of friendly banter with our lovely European friends.

In that case maybe we should offer translation services for (admittedly quite lame) British Humour.

Always thought british humour was dry.

But this kind of humour looks like from Lamer's lake.

My opinion that Europeans don't have the slightest sense of humour has been strengthened immeasurably as a result of this thread.

Oh and NubeRoja, don't patronise me. Tosser. I'm not the only one who is getting a litle annoyed at the studid amount of 'spainish spamming' taking place in this forum.

Well, not all Europeans, but some really need to relax http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

But then, I guess it's just like in some non-european countries. Once their national pride is triggered, they forget all humor they ever had. Pitty, since I never saw a piece of land or a flag being tortured, bleeding or dying, but well, that may be beyond reational reasoning... http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/10.gif

This thread only contains the musings of a few Europeans (and I think probably most here might come from the traditionally humour-free countries - Spain, Germany, France, Belgium, Italy, etc. - just kidding folks). There are hundreds of millions more of us, and some of us come from countries where humour is dry and non-slapstick. If your opinion of the European sense of humour has been changed immeasurably by this thread, then you may find your opinion to be somewhat in error. Personally, I don't see much to laugh at here either. If there's humour here it's hiding itself pretty well - maybe it's American humour.

What's all this British have humour, Europeans don't ? To the best of my knowledge Britain is a European country (Britons are Europeans) so those statements don't make any sense. It's like someone saying that Texas isn't part of the USA. So the statement Texans have humour but Americans don't is non-sensical as is the British/European theme. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_confused.gif http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_confused.gif http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_confused.gif

I think the guy probably means that humour is confined to the island nations of Europe. Britons often refer to the mainland as 'Europe' and those living on the mainland as 'Europeans'.

Anyway, don't get too excited about the lack of real humour on the mainland. You folks do other things well that we British don't. Germans make great cars, French have great food, the Spanish... well the Spanish must do something well that doesn't involve killing bulls. They used to have a great architect until someone ran him over, and their Fascist leaders were the longest-lived in the world.

Well, now this is being directly full of prejudices. Killing bulls? We have more things apart from "killing bulls". We also have a great food, that people like you use to enjoy a lot, and great beaches that also enjoy people from lots of countries. And romanic era monuments, and one of the best universal literature writtings ever written, good architectonic works from the Middle and Modern Age, do you want me to continue?

Our fascist leaders? How many have we had? Not so many as you seem to afirm. The only one that lived and stayed in power so long was Franco. And do you think that people was happy at that time? I think that not. You should have a nice and long visit to Spain, and read some good hispanic history books. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

You folks take things waaaay too seriously. I've spent a month in Spain, which is probably a lot longer than any non-Spanish speaking person here. I know there's a lot more to Spain than bullfighting and long-lived ex-fascists, just as there's a lot more to England than George W. Bush's poodle (Blair) and double-decker buses, and a lot more to the USA than George W. Bush and the PATRIOT act. My point was that this silly anti-English crusade is built on similar simplistic prejudices. Seems to me this Spanish language spam crusade has its basis in anti-English-language prejudice. After all, it can't really be about the game not being in Spanish, because there's no evidence at all to show that it won't be.

You're very wrong there. We've no prejudices about English. You're fed up of our protests, we're fed up of nothing being in Spanish, because not everybody is good at English. And maybe most of you are not good at French, German, Russian, Greek, Latin, etc. You're telling us to learn English. Ok, we'll write in Spanish all the time and tell you to learn Spanish, no matter if you understand it or not.

And again, there's no evidence that SH3 will be translated into Spanish, get it over, no one has officially said that it will be a translation, and we haven't seen any evidence of that. We know more of it more than you, why do you insist in that?

And about that you've lived a month in Spain, that's not enough to see the whole picture. Hauitsme has been able to see that picture, because he has been able to see most of our customs, our way of life, etc. No one can see that in 1 month. I wouldn't be able to do that, so I seriously doubt you did.

I agree, everybody has taken this whole thing way too seriously!

However, at the end of the day I'm willing to bet that the majority of English speakers don't give a flying f*** whether SH3 will be in spainish or not! Don't know if that is relavent or not but it had to be said.

Even if Spainish sales are not great, I don't think it will impact global sales enough to limit the chances of SH4. Some things are just not fair, this is one such case. It's how the world works. Welcome to reality, better start brushing up your English skills.

Mix-Martes86
12-11-2004, 04:27 PM
Not specially my English skills, because I have no problems with English at all. You have to tell that to all the Spanish people that has posted here in the forums.

Sales, money... and what? We've offered the translation for free! What does money have to do with that?? Even Enigma: Rising Tide has been translated and its President/Producer has posted supporting us.

Maybe the majority of the English speakers don't give a **** whether SH3 is translated or not. Well, it's their problem. The Spanish Community has great talented people, from which may raise some good mods. If they make mods, and are real good mods, a must-have, but they only release it in Spanish, I'm sure that a lot of people would be asking for an English version. And I know the answer that most of this modders would give. Don't be surprised if you see these situations later when SH3 is published.
