Hey,

Just figured out that the strange symbol based alphabet used in the Enchanting Table is actually the Standard Galactic Alphabet from an old PC game called Commander Keen.

So now you can translate all current and future enchantments!

Heres the translation key

Sometimes it pays to be old like me :)

Funny that the Romans set (or was it followed?) the galactic standard.  :rolleyes:

It'll be the day when someone makes a texture pack/mod to translate it.

I love relish, and I dislike ponies and bronies.

No I received no message.  Also the other thread is just a translation. It doesn't explain what the alphabet is, just how to edit the font in the game so its english...which is cheating...

I posted the alphabet so people can learn it and use to translate without editing files/cheating :)

there are multiple threads listing it, the sticky at the top likely lists it as well.

My bad then, I didn't notice it in any sticky and I certainly didn't notice it in the last couple of pages of threads here. The only other post I noticed in regard to it was the one on how to edit the font file.

it has fallen off the front page apparently, and the sticky lacks it so my apologies there, they really need to get the damn search working

it no longer lists the alphabet either x]
how quickly things change.

No probs, mistakes happen and all that.  

Sad thing is I actually know this alphabet off by heart. In my teen years at school I used to write my journal in this alphabet so no one could read it.   Ahh Commander Keen, I miss you.

lmao
sounds of limitless use, and you've discovered yet another
even though translating leaves you with even more gibberish...

Yeah I noticed that even when its translated it can still be somewhat cryptic but you get the general idea and it will only encourage you to experiment with some...which is all part of the fun :)

Yeah I know at the moment enchanted items do nothing, but my point of having to do some testing in the future due to the cryptic descriptions still stands when enchanted items are finally implimented.. Just adds a bit of mystery, magic and exploration to it all, which is what the adventure update is all about after all.

All in all the offical finished release of minecraft is looking alot better than it looked a couple of months ago. Looking forward to it :)
