Default Mod - Tomb Raider: The Angel of Darkness Text Cleanup

Hi, I made a wide-scale text cleanup for the English version of TR:AoD for PC. It cleans up the grammar of subtitles, items, and item descriptions so that it's proper British-English. While I am an American, I put in the research to ensure British spellings were used.

Download.

Screenshot album.

Installation:
1. Go to the main Tomb Raider: The Angel of Darkness game folder. By default:
C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Tomb Raider (VI) The Angel of Darkness
C:\GOG Games\Tomb Raider 6

2. [OPTIONAL] In this folder go to the Data folder, then the locale folder. Rename TEXTUK.DB somehow; I suggest adding the word "ORIGINAL" in front of it.

3. Go to the TR:AoD Text Cleanup folder and move its Data folder to your TR:AoD game folder. When prompted to replace files, choose "Yes."

This seems to be an interesting mod. As English isn't my primarily language I can't help you with this. Hopefully someone will help you to fix the potential problems.

Just a suggestion : you should post some comparison screenshots too as I'm sure everyone would love to see how it looks like before downloading and installing it. It might also convince others to give you their feedback and locate some errors you missed.

Thanks for you efforts into developing this. It's always good to see new stuff developed by the community for the classic games.

I should, for sure; it would give me an excuse to replay The Angel of Darkness. I'm definitely going to do that, Alex Fly. For now, there's a changelog to help people discern a few of the larger differences.

Thanks for the kudos!

Looking forward to those screenshots ! And I'm impatient to read Peterstar's impressions too.

This will be the screenshot post. I'll make a link in the first post of this thread later.

Edit - This got to be too filled with images, so to reduce load time in the thread, I've just made an Imgur album.

Go here for it!

It's correct. I'd be happy to help you regarding any further French transcription if necessary.

It's known as Magazine in American but we call them clips here

Really, sackboy123? Thank you for the info! I'll have to go in and revert it, then.

Edit 1 - I'm finding mixed results; I found this in the Cambridge British English Dictionary:
magazine, noun (GUNS) › a part of a gun in which cartridges are stored
clip, noun (GUN PART) › a container that is fastened to a gun, from which bullets go into the gun to be fired

Plugging the magazine definition into Google gives results for gun magazines on Wikipedia and gun sites, but plugging clip's definition in gives me results chiefly for the Cambridge British English Dictionary. It looks like they should stay as magazines, unless the Cambridge Dictionary is wrong.

Edit 2 - Also, the trusty Oxford World & British English Dictionary said this about magazines:
"A container or detachable receptacle for holding a supply of cartridges to be fed automatically to the breech of a gun:
he took the machine gun and a spare magazine"

To my knowledge, gun magazines got started being called "clips" at some point, and it stuck in video games. (Check Resident Evil 1 for PSone for another egregious example.)

Thank you, Alex Fly! I'll be sure to ask you if it ends up being necessary.

I think Magazines and clips can mean the same thing
