This script converts GC_Conversations.xml from Dread Lords to Dark Avatar format.

While porting my Dutch Language Mod from Dreadlords to Dark Avatar, I noticed that it was hard to copy/paste the translated texts in GC2_Conversations.xml, because the XML format had slightly changed. To aid in the conversion I wrote this little script that converts the GC2_Conversations.xml from Dread Lords to Dark Avatar format, after which it is trivial to copy/paste translated texts from the translated Dread Lords file to the the Dark Avatar file.

I make the script available through the GC2 Metaverse Library for the case it is usefull for someone else.

Firstly, let me state for the record that this "mod," such as it is, is not intended to make any sort of judgment on the designers or anyone else associated with this game. In fact, it is primarily for my own personal use; as much as I love the game wholly, I have a somewhat quirky personality that "twitches" whenever I spot a typo or grammar error. This mod is the culmination of my efforts toward pacifying my "twitchy eye" as it were. I would only like to say this: I love the English language, with all its quirks and bizarre words. It is also a beastly language to wrestle with and I am by no means a professional grammarian; my love of the language is strictly casual. That being said, it's more than likely I've introduced a few of my own (I like commas, for instance; the times are a changing... the poor beast is dying a lingering death, I'm afraid.) I had initially started to comment all my corrections, but that got to be tiresome, so I subsequently removed most of the comments. The few that remain are for those few instances where there was a great deal of confusion (on my part) as to what was intended. I made the best choice that I could, from my limited knowledge, and hope that it suffices. I have otherwise altered no other files and hope that this will be looked on in the manner with which it is offered: a simply and humble token to the designer and the game community at-large, in appreciation for this delightful game that has devoured so much of my time already. Keep up the great work!

Now updated (finally) for v1.95... just in time for 1.96 to come out! :L
