Norwegian Funny Town Names v4.00

Latest files (v4.00) can be found here.

Made a grf with some funny norwegian town names. All names are real, and 99% of them will only sound funny if you know norwegian (Hell is a very popular name for people from abroad). Ofcourse, adding a few hundred names (726 to be exact), not all of them are equally funny (a few not funny at all) but I had to fill up the file when I was doing it :P

Probably arent that many norwegians around, but atleast we are a few :)

Theres a new 'alphaversion' out now (06 Nov. 2013)

EDIT: Added an updated version, now at v2.13.

[I noticed that changing the file via overwriting could have some funny effect on savegames, so I renamed and will keep both two files here... Not sure what did it, but both files are working fine, but if you started a game with v1.13 you should keep that file loaded in that savegame, and change to v2.13 in the startupmenu as shown on picture below]

Changes:

* Fixed a typo.
* Fixed a language byte error.
* Changed a few more of the 'normal' town names to new funny town names I found.
* Added an extra sprite, so now there is one town name that have a 100% chance of being used... This also raises the count of names to 726.

I based this on one of the town names files from PaulC, its always good to have someone around that have figured things out already :bow:

:O You've got random names or defined real names?
This grf makes me think I should add more variation to Estonian town names, released yesterday :D

Defined real names, not random. But I might do one of those too some day :)

Why 725? Is this some kind of fixed value every 'cityname grf' has to comply to?

I dont really know, but if you want less than 725 names, there probably will be duplicates on bigger maps if there are a lot of towns? I could probably add more/less if I wished, but I havent tried...

Edit: Tried to add more names, and thats possible, so I guess I could make less names in a file too then...

I see.

Rřldal? Flĺm? Flĺt? Skjĺk?

Makes me wonder if your people ever heard of :idea: vowels... You must have some interesting pronunciation rules...

:lol:

We have 3 more letters in our alphabet than you guys do (probably, atleast 3 more than english alphabet, your profile says nothing about where you live).

æ ø å, and they probably turn out funny for you since you dont run with norwegian language in your game :)

That's fixed now. Seems we've got more non standard characters than you do :)

Nah... I just decoded grf and opened nfo in notepad... So that's probably wrong system codepage.

Indeed you do, we have 3 lower and 3 uppercase letters :) But still, norwegian is supposedly one of the hardest languages in the world to learn... but I had no problems with it :lol:

Yeh, I would suspect your notepad would use wrong chars, so thats why it looked extra weird for you :) All our extra letters are vowels...

Trond for the utf-8 encoding, you have to put þ in front of the string, eg.. "þWeirdton" 00 It's ctrl+alt+p in linux systems I'm not sure if I provided a capital character or not, but capital thorn dhouls be used. that is add shift to that key-combination.. on Win, it should be alt+0254, but I got a ž instead...

Not sure I follow you there, but alt+0254 should give letter þ

You mean I have to put that infron of all town names to make em show up correctly for people not running norwegian language, or thosw with an þ first will not show up for them at all?? ?(

Only for not-standard strings... for example
Code:
 01 "Stupidville" 00
 01 "'Weirdton" 00
 01 "Freakychester" 00
 01 "Myhome" 00
 01 "äääDontknow" 00

Then because ä isn't standard char, you should put
Code:
 01 "Stupidville" 00
 01 "'Weirdton" 00
 01 "Freakychester" 00
 01 "Myhome" 00
 01 "ÞäääDontknow" 00

So it would show ä always, but not something like %C3%A4

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/%C3%9E
You would need the capital letter one..

You can see some examples with utf-8 chars on http://devs.openttd.org/~glx/townname/
(force the encoding to utf-8 if you see some ö things :) )
C3 E9 is the Þ char (U+00DE alt+0222) as specified on http://wiki.ttdpatch.net/tiki-index.php ... tringCodes

Okey, I get it I think :P

Þ 0254 þ 0222 I should use the latter one then I supose...

but what if the å is in the midle of a name, like dås, would it the be dÞås or since it not a capital letter dþås?

Just wanne make sure I get this, lol :P This was never a problem with anything I've been doing before... like on the Commodore 64 :lol:

Will take a look at your files glx, the swedish one should probably show me what I need I suppose...

Edit: I see I always use Þ (alt+0222) from your swedish file...

"Þdås" this way... it's in front of the string. And always the capital letter.
I think it's safe even just before the letter, but for better formatting, I'd suggest in front of the string.
