I fixed the Guild Wars script and also did some clean-up. It did not work on my Ubuntu Lucid machine.

Changes I made:
- Update and correct German translation
- Set wine to current version which is 1.2 (should work fine for GW)
- Removed stuff that we don't need anymore
- MOST IMPORTANT/BUGFIX: After copying the .dat-file from CD1 we have to go up on folder because we are still in the CD-folder. This will cause Ubuntu to not be able to umount the CD since it is still busy and therefore it cannot detect CD2 after CD1 is removed.
- Automatically eject CDs using wine command
- Use a different variable for check of CD2 (don't know if this is necessary, I just did it to try if the variable was the problem, but I left it this way so you can distinguish between the variable for CD1 and CD2)

There is one thing I haven't been able to fix yet: Guild Wars automatically creates a menu shortcut even if you tell POL not to create one. Is it possible to prevent GW from doing this?

And another question: Can anybody tell me where I can find the translation files for the POL Installation wizard (the one that you start when you run a script)? I would like to update and correct the German translation of it too.

Script updated in your database, can you test and report information on your bug ticket?

For German translation - need confirmation - I think that there is the .po/.mo file in the tar.gz. You can review on it and after open a bug ticket. You can also ask Tinou directly but he is very busy...
