I have used tools to create a google translated version of the PDF. It’s translated terribly but it is barely translated enough to follow. If the official English version isn’t coming then maybe I can upload my version

And (only if the official English version isn’t going to be released) we can form a group in here where each group member gets allocated a chapter or 2 to convert the badly translated google English into proper English. Then it can be compiled back into book form

Or I don't mind doing the whole thing myself but it could take a while. Are there any objections?

I like that idea...
Better than rolling around in thumb tacks before my alcohol bath....

:-) Seriously, I like it..
I don't know much assembler yet, but I'd be willing to try to clean up some text...

I'd be willing to translate a chapter like this too. From the first part not the 3d part.

No disrespect to the official translators of the project but should we get this unofficial project started then? The official owners have all right to stop this. But yes I have already begun chapter 1. If you want to do chapter 2 then that would be great

Bear in mind the Google translated version is truly awful. If you have parts that you need help putting into proper english then you can let me know

In this case I'll do chapter 2

I think the translation is a lot better for later chapters. Google seems to do a better job on technical explanations but has problems with the introduction part.

English is not my mother tongue. While i think my English is not too bad, I'd appreciate someone to look over it after I'm finished.

I'm working at Lesion2 at the moment. Translation takes long and I have limited time. i can do about 2 pages a week at the moment. So this will take a while.

Lately with my new job I don't have much time to translate at a fast rate as well. We need more translators if we hope to get this finished before 2020

I wonder if the official translation project is truly abandoned

I sent a private message to alexsperri. One of the writers of the course. Lets see if we hear something back. If I dont hear anything or if the project is abandoned I think we should try to motivate more people to translate. If all goes wrong I'll head for 2020. Better late than never ;-)

How is the google translation? I don't speak any Italian but if the google translation is good enough for me to get the gist of what it's going on about then i'd be happy to translate / clean up a chapter, maybe more if I get into the content as well.

G**gle translation just transforms your text to broken english.

I realise that, I've used it many times. I meant what is the google translation of this book like? As in, how reasonable is it? Or has nobody done that part yet and maybe it needs doing as we go along?

It’s quite terrible for Italian. Some sentences make no sense at all

This is just one example of how bad google translate is for Italian

Ah, ok - if it's that bad then I can't help. You'll need someone that speaks assembler, Italian, or both, as well as being a native English speaker. This might well be why it hasn't happened so far?

I do think in the right context you can make sense of it, even if some sentences sound quite funny. It means a lot of work though.

I tried learning from those tutorials but couldn't understand what was being said,so instead I started reverse engineering game routines to learn.I can share my progress and routines if you guys want to learn also.

Code:
;----------------------------------------------------------  
Do_BlitTilesToScreen:
  movea.l #BitPlane1,a2
  movea.l #BitPlane2,a3
  movea.l #BitPlane3,a4
  movea.l #BitPlane4,a5
  move.l #14,d1                 ;Number Of Rows To Draw
BlitTilesToScreenCont:  
  moveq #19,d0                  ;Number Of Columns To Draw
BlitTilesToScreenLoop:  
  move.l #TileData,BlitSource
  move.l a2,BlitDestination
  bsr Do_Blit
;------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
;Add offset to blitsource so it points to next correct 16*16 tile
;Move bitplane pointer to BlitDestination Pointer
;Blit 16*16 tile to screen  
;------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
  add.l #32,BlitSource          ;Each Tile is '16*16' and word size is two bytes so 16*2 = 32
  move.l a3,BlitDestination     ;Move bitplane pointer to BlitDestination Pointer
  bsr Do_Blit                   ;Blit 16*16 tile to screen
  add.l #32,BlitSource
  move.l a4,BlitDestination
  bsr Do_Blit
  add.l #32,BlitSource
  move.l a5,BlitDestination
  bsr Do_Blit
;------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
;Add two'2' to bitplane pointers for next column in row
;------------------------------------------------------------------------------------  
  add.l #2,a2
  add.l #2,a3
  add.l #2,a4
  add.l #2,a5
  dbra d0,BlitTilesToScreenLoop
;------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
;Add sixhundred'600' to bitplane pointers for next row
;Since are screenwidth is 320/8 = 40 pixels,and our tiles are 16*16 pixels and we draw 
;20 tiles per row.We added two'2' to our bitplane offsets above to draw across the screen
;that's 20 tiles * 2 = 40,we add 600 to bitplane pointers for next screen row.
;Since the tiles are 16 pixels/width and 16 pixel Height each and we draw 20 per column
;we need to skip screenwidth*2 for correct row offset."320*2 = 640',we already added
;40 to the bitplane pointers above so we add 600 to them below.
