Intro:
Ever heard of Triple Triad? If you haven't it's a wonderful little mini-game from FF8 that is at its core a strategy based card game. Naturally, something like this would be an excellent addition to a VX game and thankfully newold has created a script that works wonderfully for VX.

The Problem:
...However I can't read Spanish so the manual that comes with the script isn't very useful for me.
I would be really grateful if someone would translate the commented code to English for me so that I can utilize this script properly. I've already tried using some online translators, but, I was still unable to piece together how to use the script efficiently.
I am aware that this is a rather huge request, but, hopefully since the actual code is already in English a huge part of the request is already fulfilled.

Source:
The thread where I found the script can be found here and should you want to contact the Author before editing it please by all means go ahead (I would if I spoke Spanish).
From what I can tell though the authors only major concern is that it's not used in a commercial product.

Script:
I've provided a link to both the Tutorial project that newold created for people interested in just using the scripts as-is and also the other download link they provided which contains the Scripts in text files and the example cards used in the afore mentioned project.
VX Tutorial 70mb
Scripts and Cards 5mb

In-case those links fail I've uploaded the scripts and cards myself to Mediafire:
Scripts and Cards 5mb

This youtube clip demonstrates it in action with some Naruto cards:


Total props to newold by the way, it looks like a damn fine script.

Can't you just use Google translate? Spanish comes out pretty spot on in that since it's close to English.

"HOW APPROPRIATE LETTERS TO DECK PLAYER"

Some of it turns out all right, some makes no sense whatsoever. I could assume that means "How to allocate letters/numbers to individual cards", but, when dealing with a script (especially a rather complex one like this) doing something so hit and miss is not a very good idea..

I've downloaded the demo and, while my Spanish is not that good, I was able to understand much of the script.

Yet I'd say the script is not finished as all the YouTube videos show the cards stats as 8, 8, A, A, even when there are many different cards with other stats in the demo. I've tried to find if there's some conflicting line of code but so far I wasn't able to do it - I've even tracked the Spanish forums in order to learn that.

However, the XP version seems to work fine (from the videos, since I don't have XP installed here).

When the scripter releases a new version, this kind of problem may be corrected.

EDIT: well when i saw how graphics intense this script requires, i think it's not an easy system to customize.

I noticed that as well, but, from playing it appears that all the rules work properly and that those figures are for some sort of debug mode (to test out all of the rules). Though since I can hardly understand much of it I can't find the line of code that turns this debug mode on or off.

Edit:
Found It:
CODE
# Debug Mode: When activated all cards will have default Attack Values of
# 8 for the Top and Left and A for the Bottom and Right sides.
# This setting is useful for checking if all of the Rules are functioning
# correctly. Do not forget to set this value to false when you want to play
# normally!
debug_mode = true

That would be excellent, it's a fair bit of work though (especially considering that when I try to spoiler/codebox all of it my post appears empty).. Here are the raw scripts courtesy of Pastebin:
General Instructions
Card Module
AI Module
Tutorial Module
Main Module
Menu Module
Complementary Module

..There is a great deal of text to translate. The general instructions would be the most helpful though.
