Re: How to use client-side translations in Minetest 5.0.0?

If not even the client GUI is translated, then it means you did not enable gettext.

Re: How to use client-side translations in Minetest 5.0.0?

You are not missing anything - the issue was the missing translation of LANG_CODE. See https://github.com/minetest/minetest/pull/8119 for details.

Re: Efficient graph based networks (electronics and transpor

Hmmmm, that is a good question. I'm not sure we can even get something even remotely as good with dynamic shortest paths compared to dynamic connectivity; the problem seems much harder. There seems to be no polylogarithmic algorithm, unfortunately...

Re: Efficient graph based networks (electronics and transpor

Ah, we didn't mean the same thing by dynamic connectivity. By that, I meant algorithms that maintain information as to which vertices are connected to which in a graph that can change with added or removed vertices and edges. It probably wouldn't be very useful for pipeworks-like mods, but very effi...

Re: Efficient graph based networks (electronics and transpor

However, to get the full benefit of them, it would probably be better if such algorithms were implemented in the engine. There might even be some C/C++ libraries we can use for that. I don't believe that you can implement that fully in C/C++. I was thinking along the lines of having the dynamic con...

Re: Efficient graph based networks (electronics and transpor

I see this as a dynamic connectivity problem: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dynamic_connectivity . Although these algorithms use quite complicated data structures, they allow updates and accesses to be done efficiently (in polylogarithmic time). However, to get the full benefit of them, it would pr...

Re: Client-side translations

The problem isn't memory usage per se, but rather that translations specific to a server should be unloaded once the server is left. The translations also need to be loaded when the server is joined, and I never found how to do that, unfortunately. (I'm not even sure it is possible with the gettext ...

Re: Client-side translations

Well, basically, that would be as much work as parsing the po files. The question is, how to do this without rewriting gettext?

Re: Client-side translations

One thing which bothers me the most at the moment: Why did you use a non-standard format for the translations instead of just Gettext / PO? I mean, is there really any reason for that? Honestly, this seems like a stupid decision. The format used was the same as intlib used, although now intlib uses...

Re: Client-side translations

Unfortunately, it can't, for 2 reasons:
- the translated parts must be known statically
- it won't work with signs showing text with sign_lib or things like that (but it will work with infotexts), due to how sign_lib or other similar mods work.

Re: [Server] Inside The Box [Puzzles]

Server chat is connected to #insidethebox Do note, it's actually ##insidethebox . Every IRC channel starts with a #, so when it was specified with # in the name, it became ##insidethebox. Don't know if that was intentional or not. IRC channels are usually specified with a '#' in the same, even thou...

Re: Client-side translations

As I said earlier, the name you need to give corresponds to the lang code used by minetest with that specific locale. In your case, if will be "de". As for having a configuration option to set the language, as I said, *it already exists*.

Re: Client-side translations

By the way. Which standard for the language codes do you use? The languages codes used are exactly the same as the folder names in po/. For now, derived language detection needs to be exact. Thus, the server needs to provide "pt_BR.tr" or there will be no translation. It might be a good i...

Re: Client-side translations

But I see. It's only another rushed project by a core dev who wants to implement something the dev likes no matter how handy it is in real-life usage and that needs a mod wrapping it into something useful. If you think that, then you haven't tried to understand at all how client-side translations c...

I'm still waiting for you to show me how these translations can be different for each client according to their locale. Your code doesn't do that.
