    [​IMG]VALWINATORDS by Foxi4

    Hello and Welcome! Foxi4 here with yet another useful application! With this little program you will be able to sucessfuly communicate with the infamous Valwin! The Beta offers translating from any language to Valwinian - I am afraid that translation from Valwinian to English may be too much of a difficult task for me... I hope this will prove to be useful to you guys and that you will enjoy using it. I took the liberty of adding some soothing music sung in Valwinish so that you may understand how does it feel like to be Valwin. The engine supports sentences as long as circa 120 signs, allowing the user to create elaborate, compelling and proper sentences! New comfort of conversations awaits! Now officially endored by Charlie Sheen himself! Don't just be a winner, become a Valwinner©!

    That's a genuine piece of homebrew, I don't see why it should be locked.

    I spent quite some time programming this baby, I'm planning to launch an official advertising campaign. Complex maths mixed with linguistics ain't easy.

    Alan John DS may be next.

    Upload a jpg of a person ---> jpg transforms into Hentmei.

    T'is all genuine code resulting from a thorough research. It also gives fantastic results, to be honest.

    Thank you. I added a nice poll to know what you guys think. This IS a beta, I'd rather want to know if it needs some improvements or not. Do post suggestions aswell!

    But I don't want to Valwinate anything. I want to un-Valwinate it. Would you be able to do that (to an extent)?

    Y'see that's the thing...

    From my calculations I got a roughly 20% chance that Valwin will make a mistake each letter typed, resulting in a 1/5 chance (equal to a baby punching a keyboard, roughly). It's hard to reverse the process though.

    It's like an .exe file that's been compiled - it is hard to decompile it. It would require a comprehensive english dictionary built-in and a system that will recognize words (cut the input into strings and compare them with the dictionary on the basis of similarity) and then put them back together in an understandable fashion.

    It's possible, but I'm definatelly too lazy to do that. :P

    This is why the software is called...

    Gotcha.

    You could always do a silly trick, such as un-Valwinate any sentence, no matter the meaning, and it simply selects from a pre-made list of sentences like "I am a Nintendo fanboy", "I hate Sony with a passion", etc.

    Not disagreeing with you, but doesn't the program kinda do that already? I'm not taking any sides here, but your program is specifically designed around Valwin and his/her inability to properly type out clear sentences.

    Yeah, what was I thinking....

    No, the program is designed to approprietly translate standard sentences from various languages into Valwinian to accomodate conversations with him/her and his people. My intentions come straight from the heart and are as pure white as snow - I don't want him to be misunderstood any longer, I will not allow that!

    I just sent a Valwinated PM to Valwin saying "Hello, it's such a nice weather outside," but I'm not getting a response. Let alone, he's ignoring me now. I think Valwinator mistranslated something, which is pissing Valwin off... maybe it needs a little more work?

    Well, duh. In Valwinian, this sentence means that the weather at HIS place is nice. If it is not, then he will treat you as a liar and will block you immediatelly, don't you have a Valwinian context book?

    I'm sorry, I need to add that kind of functionality, it is confusing sometimes... Thank you for the suggestion, will do.

    I'm sure he's baking a cake for me in thanks for facilitating communications with his tribe. Maybe even for all of us! Cake for everyone!
