Description : My first translation attempt was in 2001. Back then
I was a teen with out much knowledge, and overall
quality of translation of original DOS executable
was not very good. But we with my colleague, Sergey
"Disctrich" Ivanov was the first who figured out
how to do this.
15 years have passed, a lot of experience gained,
both technical and informational, and only
one question appears: "What if I apply all my
current knowledge and redone that project from
long time gone youth from scratch?".
Chocolate Doom as code base was chooses because of
it is one only modern source port with interpretation
of original DOS executable, that good old game.
Simon Howard, author of Chocolate Doom kindly accepts
my request to work with his code, and two and a half
months of hard work with code, graphics, design,
translation and information searching was started.
As result - all ingame content was fully translated,
and I think I have done it well. :)
