Too much got lost here.. Suggested (the added ellipsis (= 3 dots) are a nice extra I think):

37h,"FOREWARNED IS FOREARMED, YET EVEN THOSE WON'T SAVE YOU "
1Eh,"FROM DROWNING IN QUICKSAND..."
23h,"(RIDICULOUS: QUICKSAND IN A ZOO!)  "

Not sure if @gdx is still feeling up for it, but I feel this still has to go in (after that I'm done with it myself.. (I hope) Wink)
I edited ZOO.PRG myself (in the meantime), looks OK (though I'll wait a bit to see what gdx has to say on it). Only seems if there are 2 spaces after the comma though.

Hmm.. I see/realize now those (as in those arms) doesn't compute.. (Luckily gdx didn't already implement it? Tongue Wink)

THOSE -> THAT: "FOREWARNED IS FOREARMED, YET EVEN THAT WON'T SAVE YOU "

Ok, let's fix this & release, news post etc. Wink

Just a little tip: The text window can display 30 x 4 characters. This text is displayed as follows because the display routine does not cut the words.

YET EVEN YOUR FOREARMS WON'T 
KEEP YOU FROM DROWNING IN 
QUICKSAND...
(RIDICULOUS: QUICKSAND IN A ZOO!)

It is therefore useless to move the words to next string. Words will be displayed in the same way.
Also pay close attention to the length of strings. Always keep the same value except when the text is on several strings. In this cas, this is the total length of all strings of text that must remain the same. Any mistake causes bugs in the game.

Ah, it did seem to work fine, though looking at the change you made here (2ECBh)
the first byte (before the capital) now is 37h, but it was 2Dh. Not sure why that is.

Preferably I don't want to mess with it myself. I responded to a lot of FiXato's suggestions, but didn't immediately pay close attention to this one.

So IMO the better line is (this restores the proverb that's in the original (the whole bit that you've been warned is lost currently)):

FOREWARNED IS FOREARMED, YET EVEN THAT WON'T SAVE YOU FROM DROWNING IN QUICKSAND...

(I feel save you is better than keep you.)

AFAIC we should fix this.

Btw: there's a DS_STORE file on the Freesoft disk of your zip package.

For the Freesoft version, I used a dsk not clean. I'll remake it again on a proper DSK. In the meantime, if you collect all that you want yet to correct in the translation, I will make the final update.

Ok, that's cool @gdx Wink

If someone else has a last suggestion speak now (or forever hold your peace) Wink

I'll do a final playthrough, and see if I spot anything else. Will post results this evening.

Halfway through checking. Next to some room for improvement, found a couple of 'line-bugs' (lines that get scrolled past).
This occurs on 2 texts now: dying @ chamoix & dying @ dinosaur.
(Don't start fixing yet though, because there are other mistakes here.)

Alright, quite the lengthy document.
I tried to fit every fix/suggestion in one of the following categories:

  • fixes (major)
  • fixes (minor)
  • improvements (major)
  • improvements (minor)

Every item has a tag for reference.

Note that in the (Freesoft) EN version JG is called Jack Grumps. We could alter that (2x), I also suggest to do so?

Any questions: ask.
