Dear Brian,
just bought the game and looking forward to test it. I am German myself, but would like to play the game in english (as the original language). With version 1.04 installed, I could only switch between german and spanish language (in other words: even when I choose the english language flag, the menu still remains in german). Cold you please give advise how to change?

Thanks,
Hanno

Hanno,

Saint Ruth is on vacation. I'm sure he'll take a look at this issue when he returns.

In the meantime, I have a quickfix suggestion for you. If you navigate to the following folder:

C:\Program Files (x86)\Matrix Games\Desert War 1940-1942\languages

...you will see three properties files:

slogans.properties
slogans_de.properties
slogans_SPA.properties

These are the language "localization" files (English, German, Spanish). A way to replace the German (or Spanish) with the English localization is to do the following:

Delete the slogans_de.properties file (German)
Copy the slogans.properties files (English)
Rename the slogans - Copy.properties file to slogans_de.properties file (English)
Launch the game
Select the German Flag...text should now be in English..

If you never intend to play the game in Spanish, I would do all the above except replace the slogans_SPA.properties instead. That way you can still play the game in German.

A temporary fix I know, but I'm not the coder--but I am a modder!

Let me know if this fix puts you in the mode you preferred to play in; others may have the same issue.
