Sam et Max en Francais?

posted by queen_of_the_lobsters on - last edited - Viewed by 548 users

To the peeps at Telltale, is there a way I can download a French language and subtitle track for my Sam and Max games? I'll be studying abroad in France next spring, and I want to practice my listening comprehension skills before I go. Since you're games are interactive, it would be much more effective to learn French that way than through French television. Please let me know if I can find a version that I don't have to torrent. My school isn't that torrent friendly.

  • If there is going to be any translating... then it will happen once the season is finished... and probably only in the retail versions of the game sold in the country of that language...

    There COULD be some sort of fandub/fansub along the way but I don't know how legal that would be... :P

  • Hehe, i remember spending my whole christmas break some years ago playing hit the road in english and telling my mom "i'm not playing silly videogames, i'm working on my english !" :p

    The first season has been translated and dubbed.
    Not sure myself where you can find it but friends of mine have bought it in stores over here.
    I'm assuming season two should get localized "soon" as well, but i have no idea when.

    But as far as i know, you won't find any patches or stuff like that (i might very well be wrong, though, i never bothered looking for a french version).

    If you haven't played the old lucasart classics, those are available in french as well, might be a good idea to work with those, even though some of them don't have any voice acting (also, avoid playins the froggie day of the tentacle for this, they translated the text but kept the original voices).

    To be specific, I was going to start with Sam and Max Save the World, then maybe Beyond Time and Space, and The Devil's Playhouse if I'm not already in France by then.

    I love you! Also, your screenname looks Italian. Do they have Sam and Max in Italian as well? I've studied that for a bit before finally settling on French.

  • Telltale doesn't work on the translations or provide patches for them, sorry. The first two games are available in French, but you'll need to purchase the (French) retail version and can't download a patch instead.

    I do agree that would be pretty neat but there are probably lots of problems involved with doing that.

  • Yeah, I'm not getting a lot on Google in the states, so I'm trying French Google. The results seem to be a little better, but I'm double checking to make sure I don't need to reset my region to play it.

    As far as I know, DVD games are zone-free (I've never had a problem playing any of mine). But I guess I could be wrong, can anyone confirm or deny it?

    I've never heard about DVD games having zones

    I love you too ! Now can we go and get married in vegas ?

    But nope, i ain't Italian, i'm French, but i'm pretty sure they got a translation too.

    They mostly are, and Telltale's DVDs are definitly zone-free.

  • Season 2 never came out in France. You can either wait for Atari (who published the first season here) to do something or hope for a fan made sub, like with ToMI. My guess is a european release is unlikely.
