The X-Com Files / Re: can't start xcom files, need help with setup?
« on: June 19, 2020, 04:48:05 pm »
Thanks, I had the same problem. Let's hope the next Xcom Files version has integrated OXCE again, including the mods folder, similar to X-Pirates or the TWoTS+ Mod. These split forced path structures deep in Windows have their disadvantages.

In Russia, this situation is resolved simply: a user who has submitted his work to the community for free and suddenly starts shouting about copyright is sent to fuck off.

This also exists in America, called 'Fair Use' for all things that are not explicitly licensed. The self-conception of it e.g. also for all abandonware games, was however also damaged by the emergence of free licenses.

Example: Someone finds the last living dinosaur and photographs it for his blog. But one day later the dino is dead. Is the picture fair use for everyone and the schools or just the million dollar picture of the photographer?

The OpenXcom Forum itself, should make it clear that all content here for today and in the future is interpreted for fair use!

If every author here can come up with his own license and there are a hell of a lot of them (, it paralyzes every development.

Does Dioxine have the potential to clear X-Piratez from Hobbes content in the foreseeable future, or do we have to think about an alternative? The earlier weakly represented Fair Use model does not seem to work. But that is also needed for various sounds. Alien shooter and arcade pinball music content for example.

I don't see a download on the main page, is that the time for a fork? I don't see any future with the fucking license logic like any wiki project.

Here's another mirror:


I'll say it again here, if things get too big, put them on Github so the community does the cleanup. However, the license change long after the release as freeware is not allowed anyway, so relax.

Here's another mirror:


My tip: bring it to Github so that such artifacts can also be cleaned up faster.

There is always a third option!

The Hobbes lawyers, the nightmare of the X-Com community? ;D

Come on, losing a foreign gum in the foundation is no reason to stop building the house. Give us XPirates again, no matter what condition, Fair Use!

We would have completed the German translation in a few weeks. I started work a few days ago, changed only two names, Black March and its capital and dioxin quit me as a counterfeiter. That's all. However, he did not do that without insults, so I'm out, a troll, SJW, lunatic, Nazi, supremacist, whatever is popular in his village.

I do not have the resources to create my own fork currently. My intention was originally a completely different one. But obviously Black March is an elementary core in the game, without it does not work.

As an artist, I had a different self-image. Each language has its own culture, heroes and legends and the translators add it. (in her language, not in the english original) that was completely naive.

I'm just saying this so that others do not make the same mistake. In this case I am available again for a fork. The discussion was probably the same in Linux earlier. lol:

What a little, despicable creature. You avoid any discussion, you don't adress my points, you only shout into your own echo chamber; well I am not surprised, Trockyist "democracts" are the worst scum of the Earth.

Welcome to your world, but you are wrong everywhere and always and risk your autograph from me. I am not Trotskyist! But that does not mean that all analyzes of him are wrong, especially about the Nazis movment from nowhere in Germany. Even Marx is still recited by economists today. I am a Democrat, not red, black, or brown!

My only really big mistake was, also i donated earlier you. Too much feeding makes fat and moody. Absolutely unforgivable!

Ashert is simply a nazi and German supremacist, and some twisted form of a Social Justice Warrior.

Is this also available as a T-shirt? Sounds interesting. But the truth is a bit different. I am a Democrat and think definitely all political groups should be represented. Difficult in Germany due to the 5% exclusion clause. In fact, the Weimar Republic (before the Coup on March 24, 1933 and Hindenburg's restrictions of popular initiatives) was more progressive.
Nazis, I follow here more Trotsky's definition, are usually more a reaction of the upper class, against the communist danger of collectivization.

The movement that I have mentioned, is completely different and historically less condemned. For the game in any case better than Black March. Maybe only one percent here sees 'the marching men in black'. I did it. Or 'the black March 1933 (month). "I just did not want to risk anything.

You can only get respect, not harvest. All remaining differences have to go toward a Fork.

The Black March/Schwarzmark strings are back in the game. I am not happy, but the majority must always decide, that is democracy! :-X
Translator velox100 has restored the loyalist version, thanks him. The Black March supporters could also support him a little.

I know about my ancestors faults and the world keeps blaming us for the shit we've done 70+ years ago everytime we say something bad about non-german citizens.

We learn at school that the Nazis came to power by the Enabling Act of 1933, because 'Germany' was blinded and seduced by Hitler.
But in detail, this was much more of a military coup, because the Reichstag was full of SA and SS militiamen on this day, ready to slaughter anyone who voted wrongly. Nobody asked the Germans or the banned KPD member here again. Who financed this movement to this point? This is where the normal school ends, and not only in Germany.

So I have absolut no bad conscience about my ancestors. We need a different type of translator for this Black March Germany. I failed here.
Black March can also be easily translated as a date.
Just like the (March 24, 1933) That's not helpful! This term is bewitched.

I know many strategy players who do not touch X-Piratez. They say this is just another evil Germany - Nazi Fourth Reich game from thousand others, Pure inflation and inclusive ideology of the purebred.

I told them there is no direct relation to Germany, but the evidence is everywhere. Even the humanist description adorns itself with Zeppelins in the background, an invention from Germany. Add to that the Black March and the original Wolfenstein 3D Sprites Nazis in the game.

Yes, you can hide statements artistically. But not in front of people with a spark of historical awareness!

Nobody dared to do a German translation before me, German players translate and play the Final Mod and others, but not X-Piratez. My commitment here is unfortunately completely misunderstood.

My speed run through the game didn't let me see everything. I cheated a little. But I can now also say that the game is 100% politically correct, the Nazis are not really multinational. German players have to live with it.

I will consider developing a fork: 'True Piratez', with new name for the poison-spitting demon and without all the allusions crap. The Black March means everywhere in the literature, the march into the Nazi SS or the March as a prisoner with it! This is never random in the game. Here a another Example:

I know the story, I've completely done the game. I haven't changed a word in the humanist description.

All my changes were aimed at defusing false associations with germany. Black March was no help for that, so I removed it (the name of the city, not the humanists)

The resistance here results from the fact, that some Gesell'sche Alternative in Germany, makes humanists virtually homeless. Now they may come from Jerusalem, Africa or the USA. The cube, with really all possibilities, is not welcome.

And look at the geoscape, Black March is a lot bigger than Germany. It goes from the Baltic to the Black Sea.

Not really, that could also be the historic Germany 1942 or 1943 with allies. The borders in the game are very similar!

second picture from the dissident translation, without Black March (also the BER Raumhafen, is an Inside Joke, more plausible for German players from the region there)

It's easier to steal and revise the 10 Commandments. In many places 'The Black March' is equated with the Nazis, not only with the book of the same name by Peter Neumann. Here another example:

From a total of 257,000 western Allied prisoners of war held in German military prison camps, over 80,000 POWs were forced to march westward across Poland, Czechoslovakia, and Germany in extreme winter conditions, over about four months between January and April 1945. This series of events has been called various names: "The Great March West", "The Long March", "The Long Walk", "The Long Trek", "The Black March"...

However, The Black March stands here again for the control of masses by the SS black uniformed marching men.

In the game Black March is only a country name. But definitely anyone who knows a little about 20th century history will associate the Nazis in Germany. No matter where the game places the humanists.

This is not illegal or any subject for censors. This is just normal New Wolfenstein content.

My only intention was to take Germany a little bit further away from the Nazis, in the game these Humanist faction. Because it's not clear, and an undefined 'Schwarzmark', a noble puppet theater with new margraves, only makes other problems. In any case Germany is the darkest, or most primitive future culture in the World of X-Piratez.

Here a simple compromise, we exchange the IRON TRIBE in England with the Black March in Germany! Because England really has a more monarchical and less Nazi culture! An isolated 'Schwarzmark' from any possible count, with a real royal queen in the backyard, would be much smaller and more logical here.

The chief pirate must decide.

If you think you're a better writer than me, you're welcome to write a book with your ideas. For now, get your thieving palms off my work. There is an article in the game that explains what Blackmarch is. Nowhere does it even say it's not monarchy (or other form of aristocracy); nor does it say that it is Germany which was the root of it. It could easily be the another way around - Germany got assimilated by Poland. Neither it is said that humanists are in any way associated with Blackmarch - they're from all countries. You're overinterpreting.

I don't want you to translate my work anymore; I cannot (or wouldn't want to) enforce this in any way, I'm just asking you like a civilized man. You're not acting fair towards me, so I don't want to associate with you. Not only you're disrespectful, but also you seem to haven't played X-Piratez much, if you're saying "maybe it was from another mod" about the iconic sfastika-shaped vessels.

Oh also one more thing. X-Piratez does not condone matriarchy nor patriarchy nor any sort of war of the sexes. The only real matriarchy in the game is Academy, the evil guys.

I'm really writing a book with similar content, but it's not set on earth, and Dr.X is not evil, just the last eugenicist of his kind...

In the game i later made a little cheat for infinite Chinese Dragon Rockets, so I blew up the UFOs before I completely uncovered them on the map. A long time ago. I did not notice the shapes.

Update: I found it, this Ship called in the game 'Hanabu' and really had the shape of a swastika.
Ok the original is called 'Haunebu' not 'Hanabu', and swastika only printed, but even that is part of the Nazi Ufo stories:

Therefore, the association is logical that the Nazi humanists in the game also come from a Typ of the SS 'Black March' in Germany, the Fourth Reich, not from global or some form of 'Schwarzmark' of a margrave (anyway illogically outside a kingdom).

I withdraw with my 2 other translators, I do not want to do any further damage to your artwork, or risk that you future translations not compiled into the game. But probably the game will not be translated anymore. :(
Maybe a fork is possible. Thanks for your rights release. We are just pirates, nothing is sacred to us. ::)
