Skout (1999, Germany) English subs?

Postby wkduffy » Sat Aug 15, 2015 5:32 pm

Hi all! Not sure if this is the right place to ask, but...

Does anyone know if English subs exist for Skout (1999). I think the game is in German and Polish? I've not looked at the game's files myself yet. Thanks for any infos.

EDIT: There's a Youtube post of some gameplay and the poster comments say an English demo exists, but I'm not sure what that means. Also, is the 3DSL demo iso here just the demo, and does it include the English? Just looking for some info up front before pouring time into investigating if anyone has it handy. If not, that's fine.

Both the level demo and iso demo on here are German. I changed description on level demo now as a comment in Download.com says it's German.
The description at MobyGames is probably where the youtube person got infos that there's an English demo - http://www.mobygames.com/game/windows/skout
Fileplanet though doesn't indicate German on that demo but does have another v1.01b1 which says German http://www.fileplanet.com/36835/0/0/0/1/section/Demos

Btw, it would be nice if someone had the Polish version to share as it seems the German version was censored.

I found the instruction of how to make this game uncut on a german uncut patches site:

1. open options.txt in gamedir
2. search for "non_index_version 1" and replace 1 with 0

The aforementioned instruction turned out wrong. non_index_version must be 1 for uncut game.
But what a bad game this is. I played for 20 minutes an thats enough for me. The best this game has to offer is the voiceactor of the main character, who is well known from the german versions of Gothic 1 & 2.

Seems like English demo, haven't checked that though.

I've found a rip of Polish version w/o audio tracks. Luckily, there are some Polish guys (*winking*) around now, who own the game. Perhaps, they could provide full CD image.
Managed to survive several years of war, old-games.ru, but has been killed here without any pity, compassion or mercy.

Confirming (and also confirming its error-free playability on 8.1, just open the DL'd EXE as administrator)! Unfortunately, these two articles are (ATM only) proof on the fate of the English full release, before i3D (the parent company) with its affiliates silently walked away somewhere in 2004. A shame, even though the game is crap lol...

An English version has turned up and is up on site, for those who haven't noticed. :D
