TraduSCI 2.4 is out!


Well, it’s been a while since TraduSCI was last updated.

SCIaMano, the SCI Message editor that started it all, has been upgraded with the capability of automatic translation, which is done via Google Translate.

FotoSCIhop, the SCI Pictures/Views editor, has been completed with the ability to preserve LINK structures, so that the latest SCI games are finally supported.

A few fixes and refinements here and there, along with a Multilanguage installer, and a new release is ready.

Hey, consider that it’s hard to mantain a Win32 software. That’s very old technology… but it seems to be aging very well, nonetheless! I’ve run it under Windows 10 with no problem at all!

I want to dedicate this effort, in its entirety, to Michele Del Bene (aka Micartu), a good friend who passed away. He made a great contribution to the game translation scene and also inspired me to add functionalities to SCIaMano over the years, and to make it more user friendly. Micartu always made his best to support translation projects and also struggled to motivate contributors for help. I hope that this update will be useful in that direction, that is, to bring new SCI games translation projects to life.

So, go ahead to the TraduSCI project page, and download your copy today!

Oracle database for Hotel booking


This database is derived from a team work that we made back at university. Its purpose is to manage reservation for hotel rooms and beach locations. It’s written in PL/SQL and works on Oracle version 8, 9 or 10. As other academic material here published, it’s oriented to an Italian-speaking audience. Also the project documentation is in Italian.


CORBA sample in Java


This is a sample Java distributed application, making use of JacORB, that I developed for a classwork during my university career. It is fully functional, although it is only in Italian.
The scope of this application is the management of Work Groups. After a certain number of workers submits their application for a job, a new Workgroup is created and then all the workers are notified of their new role.
