Thanks for this update. I really appreciate you guys giving us updates and I do not complain that it's taking longer than expected. This is going to be awesome! Smile

You see, the translation for "find something" in this case would not be "finde etwas", but rather "etwas finden". It's an abbreviated way of writing a short note to yourself, a to do list basically. Only in english you don't use the infinitive ("to find something") for that, as you would in german, you use an imperative (I think it's an imperative?)...

Yes, that's exactly what I noticed now. I don't know how the interpretation is in english, when I say "Find the key for wine ceallar", but I think that means the same as "I have to find the key for wine cellar".
And here is the problem in translation to german. Because that would mean "Finde den Schl├╝ssel zum Weinkeller", what means back in english: "You have to find the key for wine cellar". That's a paradoxon and in german it's bad for the immersion, when you translate english texts in 1:1 what would reads like texts written by an other person to you!

I was wondering why you english guys didn't understand my problem. But now I know why...

That was the misunderstanding, so I hope that all is clear now.
Hope to fix that in AMFP.

That's not really an issue. I don't ever recall "you" being put into the texts. That's a translation issue, that is due to languages being translated. You can't do anything about that.

"You" is putted into the texts when you play in german and that's the problem of Amnesia. But in Penumbra it wasn't.

And I can do something about that by rewriting the lang file and that's what I did. But it is hard work and so I wish they will make it correct from the beginning of translation process.
If AAMFP won't try to please the general public once FG got more popular I'll buy every single game FG has released to date, no sales, full price, from FG's store! Currently I own Amnesia from Humble Bundle and Penumbra Collector's pack from Steam and I simply stopped bothering with movies, shallow, jolly and stupid they are nowadays.

BTW, I hope the font's won't be so jagged as they are in Amnesia. It spoils the impression of a well made, polished game so badly!

OK, i agree with that. With the money i got, i'm gonna buy AAMFP and THE FULL PENUMBRA PACKAGE.
By the way, the Penumbra package is at about $5 until... today on steam.

Yay!
I already own all of their games. I bought Amnesia first at full price on Steam and I bought the Penumbra Bundle for $5 when it was on sale on Steam. The new Amnesia, I was thinking of buying retail, but I think they said it wasn't going to be sold retail, so digital download is fine I guess.

Ahhhh. Currently downloading Overture. Can't wait to play Frictional Games first game!
I guess their is one thing I might be a little sad over, the more popular Frictional Games get. The more the forums will be targeted by trolling assholes. (Nothing wrong with new fresh faces around and more talent. But just those damn trolls!)
