Fox told me you guys are not to "fancy" about pre-orders... However, some people wanted to pre-order ArmA on Amazon.de but got lost with the German. If you have a UK or US or whatever Amazon account you can of course use that on Amazon to pre-order.

So I made this little post on ArmAmods.net on how to pre-order from Amazon.de. Maybe this helps for the ones that want to pre-order anyway. ;)

Sickboy has been working on the Czech version to see if he could turn everything into english.
It's possibe, there is a 4 page discussion going on on the BI forums with an explanation of what he is doing.

First note and warning: ALWAYS backup files that you edit, move, replace, etc. etc.
I found a way to turn the game half into English, I only had a few minutes to check yet... Will continue searching later, maybe somebody else finds some more. We probably just need proper unpbo/pbo tools for arma.

Read further below for more updated info!!

Ok, to get most stuff in the English do the following:
Download and install editplus (google)
open the file ArmA\dta\bin.pbo in editplus
Do a search and replace (CTRL H):
"English","Czech","German","Polish","Russian"
replace with:
"Czech","English","German","Polish","Russian"
save, and voila. Many parts are in English... Voices and most speeches were already in English!!


Info on working with the ArmA pbo files

The eliteness tool indeed works for unpacking the pbo's properly... with winpbo I was having problems :)

The stringtable files are exactly as with flashpoint, there is just not a working setting that we can change, to switch language,... so far..., since in the arma.cfg, there is already standing: language=English, and nowhere else I can find a config setting for language etc.

I will keep you guys up2date... I sucesfully unpacked the core, bin and weapons pbo's


Latest news...

Language.pbo in the Addons folder...
Unpbo it,
change all stringtable.csv files like before (I just used powergrep to edit all files simultanious):
"English","Czech","German","Polish","Russian"
to
"Czech","English","German","Polish","Russian"
And voila, all the rest of the game translated aswell :)
(Except single player mission/campaign briefings & overview :()
Repack it with makepbo or winpbo

(btw you can also put the "Czech" on the german, polish, or russian place... to get those languages ;))

Same goes for MULTIPLAYER missions, they have also english included stringtable, and even briefings and overviews, for now I just unpbo'd them, replaced the briefing.czech and overview.czech by the english ones, edited the stringtable.csv and voila.

Now if we could only find the spot where it decides that it's the czech version... then we don't need to do all this crap :)

Raa u can i think.
As u see with the Czech version. In this version u could use any of the languages by editing those files, i mean u could play in German, Czech, Russian, Polish and English.

English is there cause of the MP side of the game.
So i would say u could play it in English, but a confirmation?. No, i cannot give u that nor anyone can, cause the German version is not out yet.

Fox will buy me mine. :D

Yeah, thats right.

The german version will be in english for MP. Any MP missions created by users will have english briefings (unless the mission maker only wants it to be played by players from X country)
All sp missions/briefings, manual, editor will be in german.

Hopefully with the german version we can do exactly what sickboy has done with the Czech version, than we got ourselves an english game.

I have ordered the SE at morphicon (german publisher) thanks to SniperAndy.

How to play Czech version in english
(need to be logged in on armamods.net to view)

[quote]Just stick the language.pbo into Addons.
Bin.pbo goes in to Dta folder
Game is pretty much fully English, built in missions are still Czech

If you're getting a Czech version, get this files... please don't mirror them for a few days so we get some registrations in on our site. thanks.[/quote]

Fox what about that u heard?
I mean that about changing languages could be considered "hack" by the AC protetion and prevent u to join MP games.

Do u think it would be possible to start a server with AC off?

Yes big thats always possible. Servers NOT runnin AC will allow people to play, but like most games, sadly, AC on server is a must have very soon cause of hacks being used.
Than the people with this language change could be in trouble.

As long as the have a backup they can roll back, or maybe make a double installation. But if you are a MP only (mainly) player this might force to go buy an English version aswell if you hate to hear the Czech language.

But this remark about th AC wasnt an official one, it was said this whole "change the language" project could conflict with the AC tools to be released in the future.
