Graoumf and his coworkers have updated this mod to include a French translation. They have also included a few bug fixes based on issues reported here. I have uploaded for everyone, however, I am not the person to contact for support. Sorry folks but I still need to get the next CA version.

Here is the link : SOBH v.275b

Here are some of the updates they included:

Apart from the French translation, here are the change we made:
1. inclusion of fixes provided in the BiG Fixpack v10.1 various fixes to tra files (invalid keywords and stuff) fixes for three small problems mentioned in the Bonehill v275 bug report thread
2. a complete rewrite of the readme (english and spanish), using the latest SHS model.
3. BH0111.ARE, both for BGT and Tutu: changed the charge of RNDTRE01.ITM in the container to 0 (it seems this value is used elsewhere for random items)
4. BHQUENEX.d: added a text reply before EXIT in the unconditionnal reply of the first state. The text used is not optimal but avoids adding a new text (reused text for the exit case in state 12)
5. BHMARTIN.d, both for BGT and Tutu: added a reply when "BHGnollQuest" is 1. I reused a reply for when it is 0, which is not optimal either (but the ogre mage is not dead yet anywhere, so the task is not finished).
6. Finally, I changed the readme handling in the tp2 file, aside from adding the French language. They used to be copies of the English readme in other directories, so that the AT_EXIT command would work with the %LANGUAGE% variable. Instead I used the README command, which allows to set a name with %LANGUAGE%, with a fallback if the file is not found, in this case it will display the English version. Additionally, this means the readme will be proposed at the beginning of the installation. I checked the behaviour will all languages.

It's fantastic news that you're still working on SoBH!
While you're at it, any chance you could give some hints in regard of this question?

Sorry Creepin, Sir BillyBob didn't work on the mod for this version, that was our team. He accepted to update the mod, and I thank him for that.
Our purpose was first to include the french translation; we tried to fix some bugs but we don't support the mod. We did what we could do. For more fixes, I guess the community should wait for erebusant's return or another modder.

Sorry Graoumf, I should have read OP more carefully before jumping to conclusion that SBB is back and available for some answering :)

It's great to know SoBH is still looked after nevertheless, thanks for that bugfixing!

Does this only change the tra file (if it does, could you post it here so i don't have to redownload the whole mod) or does it change more things?

As stated in the first post, there are several bug fixes, some taken from the BiG Fixpack (regarding Fabio appearance), some new, including two cases of dialog bugs reported in the bug thread (Quenex and Martin) and a container minor issue.

Is there a way to make a patch?

There should be a utility to make something like that so we don't have to redownload 190 mb.

Here is the history for v275b, including links to posts reporting the issues:
  • Added French translation,
  • Inclusion of fixes to BH0107.baf, BH0500.baf and various tra files from the BiG Fixpack v10.1,
  • Additional similar fixes to tra files (wrong key-words mainly),
  • Tentative fix for a few problems: container with random treasure, dialog oddity and missing reply in dialog,
  • Updated to WeiDU v230,
  • Readme rewrite according to current Spellhold model, with recovered history chapter.
If you play with the BiG Fixpack, you don't need the first ones. The additional tra fixes are really not worth updating. As for the three other bug fixes, in my opinion, they are minor or there is already a known workaround.

The BiG Fixpack has a tool to make patches. Maybe the people updating the fixpack could include the fixes. The first post mentions the files that were changed, so it should be easy to locate them.
