I had English translations of all street names underneath their normal names, then I restarted and they vanished - I just get the Shapeirian names on mouseover now.

I miss them, how do I get them back?

Thanks

I believe there are only translations when you look at the street entrance from a plaza.

I had it when I was walking through the streets, not just from the plaza.

Same here.

I'm not certain, but I think I got the translations by speaking with Shameen.

You must ask either Shema or Shameen about 'money changer' via parser before leaving the inn for the very first time.

I thought it was something like that, and when I'd restarted (I wanted simpler streets) I didn't ask again (well, not them anyway).

Next playthrough (I've only ever played thief on QFGs, and I'm going to try a different class) I'll talk first up.

Awesome :)

Yeah, and it was unnamed in the original too. Probably a conscious decision.

You get the explanation about the names from Shameen/Shema too if you ask them about the money changer through point&click, though you have to leave the inn and unsuccesfully try to buy something from Ali Chica before it pops up in your P&C tree. The opportunity to learn the names from your Katta friends doesn't disappear until you actually reach Dinarzad.

And Adeyke, it was a rather last-minute addition, so it's no wonder you missed it.

Mmmhhhh... I got that message from Shameen and don't remember seeing the names translated. Marking on this thread as one into which I posted to test it again later.

Yes, certainly... If you're literally hungry enough to eat a horse, but there aren't any around... :p

I can imagine all the native arabic jokes that are spawned from that conflation.

You know, that error, duplicated or not, is a bit unforgivable, considering the Welcome Woman at the Welcome Inn of Tarna is named Janna Jamil and she's no camel paradise. :p

I liked those, didn't realize it was street names though. It seemed like propaganda or something being said and was pretty cool

Let's settle for semi-forgivable, since QFG3 does not contain the arabic word for camel and a layman has no way of telling that Jamal isn't just a variation of Jamil.

Good point; also, since there isn't an actual Jamil Darb in QfG2 as well, we'll let you slide.

This time. :p
