I want my English version back

Post by TomBombadil711 » Thu May 05, 2011 8:03 pm

After installing the recent update all in-game text is in German now. No problem as I am German but I would prefer to have the English text back. How to get it back?

If you set your region settings to English it will all be English!

If you want the game to ignore your "Region and Language Options" control panel settings, and appear in English, then (assuming Windows) you could:
  1. Go to C:\Program Files\Slitherine\Field of Glory (or whichever folder you installed FoG in).
  2. Go into the "Resources" folder.
  3. Rename the "de.mo" file to something else, e.g. "-de.mo".
Unfortunately it's very hard for us to make a user-friendly way to ignore the "Region and Language Options" control panel, because we need to build FoG for both Mac OS X and Windows from the same code-base. The Apple way of doing things is to have programs follow the system language setting.

Thanks Eric. That worked perfectly.
