Hi there!

I have another problem with OPF (thanks for NedFox and Sham BL:) .
So, my copy of OPF is Polish version, but I want to change this language to
English.
In stringtable.csv file Polish words are overwrite on English. (but it was
deleted).
Now, I have a original file from English version of this game, and some
in-game textes are English (in menu,weapon names,commands) ,some Polish.
When I change language in flashpoint.cfg for example to German or French,
all textes are in that language.
So,my question : What I must do ,to play a full English version
(please,don't say "buy english version")? What are names of language
files?Can somebody send and help me?

Thanks...

The language is hardcoded into the executables.. You can see this when you
have players from other countries on your server, where the death-messages
etc are localized.

Apart from the stringtable.csv there is nothing (IMHO) you can do. So the
answer really is : Buy the English version.
BtW, Goty English is really cheap these days !

Would installing a mod such as FDF make any difference?

FDF is uncompressed replacements of all kind of phrases and words.. Every
instance of a soldier has it's own "one two three".
I guess the 'normal' games has this compressed, and maybe into some files,
but I don't know which ones they are..

Still: Why should there be an English, a French and a Polish version if it
only depended on language files? Nah, I don't think you have a chance in
'converting' a foreign game into English.

I'm getting someone to buy me a czech version of OFP, it's cheap enough
to be worth it (I currently have the european version).

If you could send me a list of the md5sums of all files i could tell you
which differ from the europaen version and could maybe even make a
download available to you.
