Change string via Action4 Feature 48

Post by sky81 »

I'm trying to change the string : First bus arriaved to .... into: First trolley bus arraive to.... with Action 4 feature 48
I'm doying something like this but is not working:
* 76 04 48 FF 81 09 2F 90 98 0F "Citizens celebrate . . ." 0D
0D "First passenger trolleybus arrives "
"at " 80 21 00

This is action 4 help:
<Sprite-number> * <Length> 04 <feature> <language-id> <num-ent> <offset> <text>

My grf has id 7, so I need to set 81 not 01 right? Anyway, is not working either with 01 nor 81

Thanks

OTTD does not support changing original strings using feature '48'.

I understand. Then, is there a way to achieve what I want, that is: when a trolleybus is coming first time into a station to change the message?

Thanks

Not that I know of.

The wiki says:
Note: OpenTTD's string system is very different to the system of TTD and TTDPatch. It supports/requires plural forms, genders, cases and different number formattings, so complex strings which are combined from multiple parts are not interchangeable. Various strings also have changed their parameter order over time or got additional arguments.

As such action 4 is not allowed to change any original strings in OpenTTD; translations are not done via NewGRF, but only via the WebTranslator

there's a handful of original TTD strings that are mapped to openttd strings in a way that allows action4 to modify them. but these are hand-picked.

this mapping can be found here
You might not exactly be interested in Ferion, but if you are, have fun :)
