This simple tool can be used to automate traification of a mod. It is a command-line tool and requires a copy of WeiDU, so they should be both put in your $PATH (or in your BG2 directory). Your mod should have translations packaged in mymod/tra/english, while its D, BAF etc. files can live anywhere in the mymod hierarchy (but outside of mymod/tra). Setup-mymod.tp2 should live inside mymod if you want it traified.

The program can be run in two modes.

If you want to just traify, run it like this:

traify mymod english

This will scan the mymod file hierarchy, skipping mymod/tra, and traifies every single *.d, *.baf, *.tp* it finds there, putting the traified file in its old position and the resulting tra in mymod/tra/english. Whatever.d uses whatever.tra, while *.baf and *.tp* use setup.tra. This mode also ensures that partially traified mods aren't broken (old @xxx references are preserved, and new references are appended to the bottom).

The tool can also generate .d, .baf etc. files that use local strings rather than @references. Run it like this:

traify mymod english english spanish french italian

This traifies like in the prior case, then generates, in mymod/tra/{english,spanish,french,italian}/decompiled a version of all *.d, *.baf, *.tp* files, that uses local strings rather than @references. This assumes that whatever.d has its strings in whatever.tra, while *.baf or *.tp* has its strings in setup.tra.

Moreover, you can pass additional options to WeiDU; they must be put after the primary language, followed by -- and by the target languages. Examples:

traify mymod english --traify-comment --nogame --

traify mymod english --traify-comment --nogame -- english spanish french italian

--traify-comment --nogame will be thus passed to every instance of WeiDU; the -- is just a marker.

Source code for the tool is available at GitHub. The download contains the Windows binary; users of other operating systems can grab the fully equivalent 'traify.sh' from Github.

I suppose I'm missing something obvious, but how is this different from --traify, --traify-old-tra, etc.?

It calls --traify and friends, but automates the process if you're traifying a non-trivial number of files.

Awesome ! :) One issue I ran into on a past attempt at TRAIFYing my mod, and that is...

Does it require us to change the BG2 directory (ie the Dialog.TLK etc) to the BG2 directory that is specified by the Windows Registry?

If your BG2 path is set correctly in the registry, it can be run from anywhere you choose. Otherwise, you must run it from your BG2 game directory.

That's great news.

I once tried to use WeiDU to traify my mod, and that didn't work unless I changed my entire Installation to my registry directory, causing some major irritation. Its great to know that won't be an issue on this tool once its placed next to Dialog.TLK

This tool works exactly like --traify, - if WeiDU --traify had a complaint about a certain setup, then traify.exe will have such a complaint too.

WeiDU must find a game installation in one of the following locations:

all OS:
"."
".."
"../.."
"../../.."
"../../../.."
only Windows:
bg2_registry_path
bg1_registry_path
iwd1_registry_path
iwd2_registry_path
pst_registry_path
"C:\\Program Files\\Black Isle\\BGII - SoA\\"
"D:\\Program Files\\Black Isle\\BGII - SoA\\"

It tries those locations in order and stops at the first location that contains a chitin.key, and expects to find there a dialog.tlk, override folder, and a *.ini that contains correct path references to the rest of the installation. I suspect that finding a non-BG2 installation when traifying a BG2 mod (ditto for the other games) might cause issues, but have no specific desire to test this assertion.

The short answer to what the bigg said is just put a copy of weidu.exe in whatever game or mod folder you're traifying and run it from there (same goes for this tool I suspect). Never had any problems with that, though the syntax isn't always that intuitive.

If you know how to run the .sh file, it's trivial to add the option in the script. Otherwise, I'll code support for Unix-like '--' when parsing the arguments.

traify.sh: You (apparently) need quotes around the "*.tp*" or find errors out and you (apparently) need quotes around the "*.d" or it just processes .baf files.

I realize this topic is kind of old, but hopefully it's okay to post to it anyway. It doesn't seem to work when the mod has more than one word in its name. Is there a way around that?
