I am not sure which game you are talking about - when I google a Xian game, the only thing that comes up is a Tomb Raider game. Where did you buy the game? Could you provide a link?

Apart from your Dutch walkthrough, I am only finding video walkthroughs.

You should be able to run the Dutch walkthrough through a translator, though, and that way you will be able to use it.

Hi Laurie,

It is true Xing is a very beautifull game.

Marinus_Louis and I made that walkthrough, it contains a lat of screenshot and most of the time is that already enough.

some puzzles are more difficult and you need the text, try to translate that with google translate.

If you can't figured it out send me an email and I will try to make that part in english.

You can also ask Marinus_Louis.



Have much fun with this game because it's very beautifull

Hi Lauri

If you are referring to the Xing walkthrough on my site at www.pcgameswalkthroughs.nl, then this is indeed the Xing walkthrough made by Lion_1251 and myself. Lion_1251 has done de text and I did all of the screenshots while playing the game according to the text from Lion_1251.

There are about 1600 screenshots in this walkthrough and I have made them in such a way that I think that anyone who not understand Dutch can play the game if they just follow the screenshots.

I'm currently struggling my way through Syberia 3, trying to do the screenshots for the Syberia 3 walkthrough, and this game isn't very cooperative for me as a walkthrough maker. In fact it's a hopeless game to do a good walkthrough for. But I'm struggling through it. But if you having trouble to translate pieces of the Xing walkthrough into English, through Google Translate, then indeed...don't hesitate to ask me or Lion_1251 for help. My e-mailadres isn't a big secret, it is on my site, just like Dick's emailadres. Just click there on our name to sent us an email

The walkthrough is phenomenal! thank you Louis and Lion_1251! I found an additional method to keep the pictures in line with all of the text:

Right click on the walkthrough page and select "View Page Info." At the top you will see "Title: Xing," and "Address: http://www.pcgameswalkthroughs.nl/Walkthroughs/2017/Xing_The_Land_Byond/xing_index.htm" Copy this address, without the quotes, and paste it into Google Translate's left-hand side. The translated link will appear in the right-hand side in the language of your choice. Click on this link and Louis' and Lion_1251's walkthrough will appear. Amazing.

Clicking on each of the chapter links at the bottom of the walkthrough should keep the translation and formatting going. This works with all the walkthroughs I've tried so far.

Laurie-or anyone-if you have any questions, I would be happy to assist! Cheers.

Laurie and Drummerboy

Laurie, I hope that you understand Drummerboy's explanation.

Drummerboy you are very smart to figure out the best way to use Google Translate....Let the royalties make my bankaccount bigger.....

I'm not to happy with how this on-line translation works....So I hope that you all can follow the walkthrough in this way. I wish that there were 48 hours in a day, so I had the time to do a full English translation of our Dutch Xing walkthrough myself. Perhaps I'll take a shot at it when I'm finished with the Syberia 3 walkthrough

I'm not happy with the way on-line translation works, so i did a quick English translation of the first bit of our Xing walkthrough into English. It's just a little test to see if I can produce a reasonable English text. I have post this translation in a new threat here on gameboomers, here in the hint section, and I have named this threat "Xing English translation of the Dutch walkthrough". I'm very much want to see your comments on this translation because I first want to know if it's any good and understandable before I get one with a full English translation of our Xing walkthrough

Right now, if you look at this forum's listings, it's two subject headings away from this one. You can find it here.

Hi Laurie,

Look at the site: www.pcgameswalkthroughs.nl, on the startpage is a link to the first part of Xing with screenshot and it is in english.

Hi Lauri,

Make sure that you have activated the jump assit in the settings, in the beginning you don't need that very much but later in the game it makes your jumping easier.
In the later parts you have to jump very much.

Hi Marinus_Louis. I agree with you that the online translation isn't perfect and nowhere near as good as your translation, but it's a start for those who don't want to scan video walkthroughs. Your English version translation is superb!

Although I appreciate the hard work that goes into a video walkthrough, I've always preferred text walkthroughs (with pictures even better!) They're easier to scan for that one answer or the whole adventure if need be. The images you've included are a huge bonus because I surely needed them for your Rhem I SE walkthrough as I got turned around several times and your screenshots pointed me in the right direction. A picture is worth a thousand words they say.

Please keep up the high standard that you've provided in the past as I will always be a devoted fan of walkthroughs from you and Gameboomers.

Hi Drummerboy

Video walkthrough are a "crime" in my humble opinion. They go to fast for me and usualy they don't explain puzzles and how to solve them and often they skip large parts of the game, especialy in those speed run videos.

It's nice to read that you used my Rhem I SE walkthrough. I have also made a new walkthrough for Rhem IV SE and waiting for Rhem II SE and Rhem III SE to do new walkthrough for those two when I can get them. And eventualy we all hope for Rhem V. Knutt Mueler is a logical genius and he realy had me stumped at times in his Rhem games, and, may I say, there aren't many developers who can do that.

The English translation of Xing is slowly,but surely, progressing and I have just uploaded a new bit to my site. Lion_1251 (Dick Leeuw) goes faster then I do with the translation, but I also have to set everything to HTML and put all of the screenshots in it. And at the same time I'm also working on the Dutch Syberia 3 walkthrough and our dear Kate Walker is at times not very helpfull. But I'm sure we're getting it all done

Have lots of fun with Xing The Lands Beyond, it's a great and fun game to play

Hi Laurie,


You can get busy because you will find on the website not only world 2 but also world 3 of Xing.
I have finished the translation of the text of the walkthrough of Xing.

Louis puts the text in HTML and place the screenshots in the walkthrough.

He's now busy with the walkthrough of Syberia 3 because he wants to finished it, he had some troubles to make the wright screenshos by my text.

I suppose that you have lots of fun playing Xing.


Have fun,

Lion_1251
