I play alot of wow and were thinking about making a program for it....
What i have noticed is that everytime a person from the other side says something it changes to another none existing language.
But it always changes to the same, exampel: lol = kak. (not sure if it was kak or whatever :tazz:)
So it should be possibule to make a program that translate these words so you can see what the other team says....

Is it possibule?
What kinda programming should I use? (C++ etc.)
And can anyone give me a small hint where to start on this project?

and just to be on the safe side, This would be legall, wouldn't it?

WoW - World of Warcraft


:tazz:

Anyway, either C+ or even Visual Basic would work, but it'll be a ton of hand written work, and research. If you have two computers even better.

You'll need to use lua to get it to stick as a mod into Warcraft, but at that point it would be illegal probably - seeing as it's "gamebreaking" in their terms. If you look at the forums and go to the programming/macro one you can get a lot of guides on how to program for WoW.

However, if you made a standalone program were you would just copy and paste or type in something, you'd pretty much just have to smack a database to it - and sit with two characters and talk to each other and record that into the database.

Specifically because lol = kak but l o l = o e k and Lol = Rek

There is a translation, but it isn't like a = l, b = c, r = k, g = m....

It's more like a = L if not preceeded by a b c k q m, but a = r if after j n p o z, or make it p l r k if capital but preceeded by capital.

In other words, it's pretty encrypted.

Yeah but i was thinking just to have to computers and two accounts and just figure out the words...
Like say: Don't
and then see what the horde guys hears, maybe: balb
So then I know that: Don't = Balb

Maybe make some kind of program were i put in the whole english dictionary so that it can just say all of those, and then another program on the horde computer that remember and save what he hears...
Shouldn't that work?

Then I'll have a horde - Alliance dictionary and the maybe later on construct a program with that.

For that you'd want to use C++, that sounds like a pretty large project and although VB is good on both, I've found C+ to be more useful than VB when it comes to large projects.

Depends if you want it to be win32 console or win32 window.If you dont know progamming and you want to learn programming just for this.I highly recomment it.VB would be better if you want a gui,but C++ you can do this is ummmmm...maybe 1k lines or so in console.

Well, it sounds like alot of work :tazz:
And my fear is that Blizzard will simply change the language if they found out about the program....
But maybe I'll try, anyway I think I have to get some of my geeky friends to help me out here :)
