Hey, everybody!

First of, I'm not here to discuss the quality of this movie (there are already various topics about it)... I'm here because I wanted to share with you what Rory McKenna read on his computer when the Predator Killer gauntlet activated itself.

The text is written on the screen from right to left and from top to bottom.

Here are the screen captures I did with the translation:

And here is the message (letters/words in brackets are what I tried to guess):

[won]der what he[]

(the message repeats itself)

That's a cool character bit if Fugitive had to translate the message meaning that some characters don't line up and or Fugitive while can understand English isn't exactly fluent.

Where was the source of the translation? It might've been in the film and I just missed it but given some symbols are present it might be fun to go back in and figure out what everything is saying.

It's at the end of the movie, the last scene where we see the Predator Killer suit. (at 1:58 on the video below)

I've used the Predator alphabet that already existed on the Expanded Universe.

That's one of the few things I liked about the movie, using the same language/Font already in the expanded universe.
I also made a translator for this, but of course, it doesn't work backward.
