Problem with German version of Age of Empires 2

I'm using PlayOnLinux 3.3 under Ubuntu 8.10 x86. I wanted to install Age of Empires 2 (and later on the addon) but POL does not even recognize my disc.

According to the script

it looks for the file "AOESETUP.EXE", but on my disc the file is named "aoesetup.exe" (lowercase).

Maybe something to fix for the next version.

Hi rettichschnidi,

Thank you again for report this other issue
It should be fixed today.

EDIT: Script modified! Could test it again please?


P.S: Similarly to Baldur's Gate 2, if you translate in german the following sentences, I'll add them to the installation script.
The sentences:
"Click on Next ONLY if the install is finished"

So, the fixed script works now, thanks. The Addon also works.
btw: find -iname AOESETUP.EXE is your friend. Would be easier IMHO.


"Installing..." = "Installiere..."
"Click on Next ONLY if the install is finished" = "Klicke erst auf Weiter, wenn die Installation beendet wurde."

I'm not sure how to translate Next since I don't know how (if) you translated the button. So replace "Weiter" with the (translated?) content of the "Next"-Button.

btw: Your english text says "Next", the button shows Forward.

I replaced the "-name" argument by "-iname" as you suggested for the find command. (I'm not very familiar with this command ) It's clearer indeed.

I also updated the translations of the script (added the german one and replaced "Next" by "Forward" in the english one). It seems we translated "Forward" in "Vor" auf deutsch (woot ! I managed to write 2 words in german. What's sad here is that I can't do better even though I had german lessons at school during 5 years ) So I replaced "Weiter" by "Vor".

Thank you again for helping to hunt bugs
