Where can I download the translation?
The picture 82 contains a palette. In the palette, colors can be fixed or substituted (replaced). Put the translated file 82.p56 here, I'll see.

Hello Daventry,
Thank you for your answer.
Here is my translation and the 82.p56 (English), 82.PNG (French) files:

Hi, hrvg
I asked for a French file 82.p56, in which case, I could tell what you're doing wrong. You didn't post it, so I don't know. You can download the correct file. I imported 82.png. Place it in the directory (folder) 'data'.

Hello Daventry,
Thank you very much for your help.
It is very good. How did you do it, please?
I do:
Import Bitmap to pic...
Browse --> 82.png...
I click (select) on "Map to current palette"...
I disable "Exclude from palette"...
Select 255 colors (I press "Shift" key for select all the colors)...
I click "Press refresh"...
I click on "Accept"...
And I save "Export as patch file".
See 82.56 file.

Hello hrvg
That's right.
There are two ways.
1. I copy the entire palette from an English file into French, using a hex editor. This ensures that the palette is 100 percent identical to the original.
2. In the SciCompanion after importing the image, you need to click on the edit palette button. Select all colors and uncheck the "used colors", then apply. Then save as a patch file.
In the palette, the value of the first byte can be 0 or 1.
0 - substitute color
1 - fixed color.
I don't know what it's called in the official documentation. I call on the meaning of the action.
In this picture ALL colors are substitute.

Hello Daventry,
I do not understand, sorry.
I do:
I copied the pallet "999.PAL" with a hexadecimal editor...
Double click on "82.p56" image (The Kindred)...
Tab "Pic" --> I click on "Edit palette"...
I click on "Import"...
I select all colors...
I click (select) on "Used color"...
I click (select) on "Accept"...
I click (select) on "Import Bitmap to pic"...
I click (select) on "browse" --> 82.png...
I click (select) on "Map to current palette"...
I disable "Exclude from palette"...
I click on "Accept"...
And I save "Export as patch file".
It is same.

I try:
Double click on "82.p56" image (The Kindred)...
I click (select) on "Import Bitmap to pic"...
I click (select) on "browse" --> 82.png...
I click (select) on "Map to current palette"...
I disable "Exclude from palette"...
I select 255 colors (I press "Shift" key for select all the colors)...
I click on "Accept"...
Tab "Pic" --> I click on "Edit palette"...
I click on "Import" --> 999.PAL (It is palette of game)...
I click on "Accept"...
And I save "Export as patch file".
I have this:

Wrong. 
1. If you do not know the structure of the sierra pictures: *.p56 file, you do not need to use the hex-editor.
2. The 999.pal palette-file does not need to be used.
3. Do export the 82.png file as you described, then in the lower (bottom) left corner to the left of the word 'embedded' there is an icon 'palette editing'. You click on it, appear ('show', 'pop up') a window 'VGA palette editor'. On this window you choose all the colors and click on the checkbox 'used color' (uncheck, deselect), then click button 'Accept'. Then go menu 'File', 'Export as patch file'.

Youppi !!! I succeed!
Daventry, I thank you for your patience.
My error... I did not remove (uncheck, deselect) "Used color."
I have the same image as you:

I thank you very much for your help.
I have a little question, please. I inserted these files in the game: tex, view, pic, font.
I can not insert cursor files into the game (CUR). It is possible?
For SCR files, I have not tried it yet. Except the file 0.scr (I tested)... And it works for the moment.

Why? What for reason? Why is it necessary?
I think (I'm sure) it should be possible, although I've never tried. I didn't need it.
For the files *.scr I tried. It works.

No, it is not a problem. It is just a small question. It is only for delete my "data" folder (or other, because in my early days of translation. I left all in the folder of game. It was the "souk.) It is in "data" folder that I put all my translated files and I am doing my patch. Today, I want to try (see) if I can insert all the files in game... I make my patch and I see if my patch works. If yes, I redo all my translations of Sierra games.

Good luck. I'm sure you'll succeed.
Did you translate other Sierra's games as well? Where they can be downloaded?

Hello Daventry,
My translations of Sierra:
Spaque quest I VGA (patch). My first translation of Sierra. I have to redo this game.
Conquests of the Longbow (patch).
Leisure Suit Larry 1 VGA (game fr).
The Castel of D. Brain (game fr).
Quest police 1 (game fr). I did not finalize the translation because I did not find anyone to test the game.

PS: It is good for "Cursor" files, thank you.

Thanks for the link.
There is an mistake on the your site, it should be Space Quest VI (6), not Space Quest XI (11).

Hi Daventry,
Yes, you are right. It is "Space quest VI." Thank you. I warn "Threepwang".
I do not have a site. It is "Threepwang" who asked me if he could publish my translations.
