How to activate xxx Language
« on: January 07, 2013, 09:32:07 PM »
hi guys,

game is running, all is fine, only the language, im this case - german, are not working correctly.

all the rooms have the english transcription and a lot of messages are a mix from english / german.

may you can help me?

installing not possible Win 7 64bit.... so just copy from CD to HDD

i´ll try to rename the files

edit1: problem solved by renaming the the lang_0.dat and lang_2.dat

edit2: english sounds

edit3: problem solved by renaming the SOUND-0.DAT and SOUND-2.DAT


all fine now !

Do you have a german copy of Theme Hospital? Since we use the original game's strings for e.g. room names you need the right copy in order to play in Swedish, German, Italian, Spanish or French. Otherwise only new strings that we have added get shown in German.

The problem, which is the german/english mixing if I've understood it correctly.

Yes, the game uses English from the original and German from us. Could you check in your Theme Hospital install directory under SOUND/DATA. How many *.DAT files are there, and what are they called?

\HOSP\DATA
and look for file or files that start LANG-

I thought his problem was with the written text not with the sounds - sorry

True. I just usually point to the sounds first because they are most often the same. If there's only one sound file there's also probably just one text file. It's either of the methods. Check both too see what there is.

At some point there was a discussion about the installer renaming some files on installation depending on language. Or did you just copy the HOSP folder onto the harddrive?

Two ideas:

1. Try installing Theme Hospital in English

2. Switch the names of the two files LANG-0.DAT and LANG-2.DAT in the DATA folder. So that LANG-0.DAT is named LANG-2.DAT and vice versa.
