Just a quick note. The directory where the converted missions are stored on bloodgate.com is linked from this public thread, and it contained a directory listing (which I wanted, so people can find the files in it). Unfortunately, this caused a few bots (some of them in disguise) to crawl this directory and downloading all the files, causing a high traffic on the server.

 

So now the directory listing is blocked. The files are still there and can be accessed if you know their name, just not by browsing. Sorry for the invovienence!

So now the directory listing is blocked.

Alternative idea: Place a index.php + htaccess with a password prompt in it. The code would be:

 

index.php

 


<?php
define('PASSWORD', 'thedarkmod');
define('PATH', '../i18n');

if (!isset($_POST['password'])) {
//password hasn't been send, so show formfield
echo '<form action="index.php" method="POST">';
echo '<b>Please type in password:</b><br>';
echo '<input type="text" name="password"/>';
echo '</form>';
} else {
if (htmlspecialchars($_POST['password']) == PASSWORD) {
//list files in directory
$filenames = scandir(PATH); //read directory
foreach ($filenames as $filename) {
if ($filename != '.htaccess' && $filename != '..' && $filename != '.' && $filename != 'index.php' && $filename != 'robots.txt') { //don't list htaccess, etc.
echo '<a href="'.$filename.'">'.$filename.'</a><br/>';
}
}
} else {
echo 'Nothing to crawl, Taffer!<br>';
echo 'Wrong password, please try <a href="index.php" target="_self">again</a>.';
}
}
?>

 

.htaccess

 

DirectoryIndex index.php

 

 

Just place them in: http://www.bloodgate...m/pub/pk4/i18n/

You can change these constants:

define('PASSWORD', 'thedarkmod');

define('PATH', '../i18n');

 

Edit: And maybe a robots.txt

 

User-agent: *
Disallow: /

Yeah, except that I'd need to post the password in this public thread.. :) (And no .php on this server).

 

But a HTTP auth might stil work.

Unfortunately, the "hidden robots" don't care about this... :(

what a pity about the issue of access to files. :/

 

And, if i do a thing like that: storm_l10n is the same thing?

 

However, added german translations of deceptive shadows, mandrasola, sneak and destroy, vengeance for a thief, siegeshop and let sleeping thieves lie. (done by radiant) :)

 

Added the italian translation of in the north (with extra pages for translators). :)

No, if you point directly to the file, it can be downloaded. It is just that the directory listing is invisible. I'll look into adding a password to the directory, then the listing can be shown again. Sorry for the inconvience.

Yes this Thread is a year old, but i didnt now if i should make a new.

 

Where can i get the translationfiles (to german)? I loaded a lot of Missions from "http://www.thedarkmod.com/missions/" but there seams not to be one single german translation.

There is a list of translations "http://wiki.thedarkmod.com/index.php?title=I18N_Status" only a list. It seams that more than half of all the Missions where translatet, but I didnt find one on the web.

Are there any instructions availlable on how to download the translated texts?

Obviously setting TDM to another language and downloading the missions is not sufficient.

Is the entire translation project on hold or was anything released already somewhere ? :huh:

i would have thought the people doing the translations would have kept copies of the translations so that if the main site got lost then there would still be backups.
