Hi, Dave...

This is great news, indeed. More:

Hopefully, this won't cause you any added complications for your work,
Dave. I suspect that the makefile changes to include this localization
in the build came along with the same r4 on trunk, and as I only copied
the downlevel files, for now, these should be blissfully ignored.

These all seem to be building now, packaging (converting DLL name to 8.3) will need doing for the mediafolder_tw.dll. Bldlevel info should also be updated and consideration about removing the -Decs here and there.
Also the classes makefiles look as though they install a couple of languages (usually en and/or de plus the target) instead of one when packaging. Will need fixing when we get around to packaging.
Should the language be Taiwan or ?

I suggest that all languages have the _xx removed and be placed into language-specific subdirectories. While this requires some makefile magic, it keeps things consistent and better organized.

TW is best listed as wither Traditional Chinese, Traditional Chinese (Taiwan), or Chinese (traditional).

Likewise, I would vote for the removal of xxx for those files which have numerical identifiers, e.g.:


I'm curious to see how my dialog changes worked out, too.

How we package this going forward is something else for discussion. It is in the ArcaOS roadmap to make these classes optional. As such, instead of simply overwriting the IBM files in the repo with them or mixing them into the MMOS2/BASE directory, making an installable multimedia feature package is probably the best way to go. We should discuss that in a separate thread.
