Hello,

I finished Alpha Protocol yesterday, and I very love the game :) .

But, I was a little frustrating for the end of the game : The news channel speech that describe the world during the credits have no subtitles... and I understand nothing because, as many persons, English is not my native language.

So, Please add subtitles and localization for this end sequence in your last patch. This would be nice for all the non-English community. :)

Thanks.

I agree. And I hope in the next patch the option to change size of subtitles or at least slow the dialogue timer...

I think the best solution is to add a minimal duration for a subtitle line (4 lines in less than one second is simply impossible to read, even if you x 2 the time).

English subtitles are already embedded in the audio stream, although they don't show up as I recall. Anyway, I've extracted them if you wanted to run them through an online translator to convert them to the language of your choice.

WARNING! ABSOLUTELY MASSIVE SPOILERS!!
Do not read these unless you have finished the game at least once (and preferably at least 2 or 3 times). You have been warned.

There are a series of audio files for the news clips. Which ones play depend on your choices during the game. I have listed the filenames and added my guesses on what choices trigger them.

The last 3 are newsreports in the final safehouse, not credit sequences, and are, as such, subtitled.

Although I never recall having heard the 3rd of them...

How did you extract them ?

I just used one of the Unreal 3 engine UPK extractors and extracted the appropriate looking files, in this case primarily Alpha Protocol\APGame\CookedPC\Packages\Dialogues\News\EG01_NEWS_WAV.upk (there are also EG02, 03, 04, which added the last three items to my original post, but as Hassat Hunter said appear not to be from the credits). The sound files are containers that hold the audio in OGG format along with the subtitles, which can be easily viewed in a text editor.

they are maybe also in localization folders.

It would appear so. In fact, they are just plain text files that don't need any special tools. Go to Alpha Protocol\APGame\Localization\ and then the subfolder appropriate to your language. Look for EG01_NEWS_WAV.XXX (where XXX is the language code) and open it in Notepad or the like. The English subs are also there (in the INT folder), so I could have saved myself a lot of trouble lol.

Thanks, I find and open it in my language. -_-
