Language selection gone wrong
« on: June 15, 2008, 01:41:03 pm »
Hi, its my first time with the game.

I dont know how to proceed anymore as the game menu is in a foreign language. The language selector was kinda acting wrong.
After the first start i was presented some kind of setup ,and didnt have the time to check it out, till after i wanted to switch the language. So i clicked on the field that said "english" which i thought would change the language, because i think it had a downward arrow. Hardly any indication there that catched my eye i must say.
Ok a dropdown menu appeared with lot of cool languages, that seemed to extend far below my monitor and far above the initial clickbox, but i didnt see english nor german in it anymore, so i tried to reach it somehow. But i didnt know how, im jsut used to scrolling from windows.
So I click on the right bar if there was one i dont know. Now everything switched to japanese, sept the names of the language. Why's that? Now i can only blindly switch anymore languages only to find none i can read anymore. When i move my mouse over a menu item none gets any highlight at all, and the only way to proceed from here are the other secret buttons.
Now i can restart the game but i dont know how to switch the language anymore, i think the menu is swedish which i cant read.

What to do?  :o

btw i meantion it is really a bug item for me. Because it qualifies as gamebreaker to me. Besides the menu's could be more intuitive ,its usually the first few seconds that determine good or bad for me =)

put this

set s_language "en"

in your config.cfg, which is somewhere like here

C:\Users\andy\AppData\Roaming\UFOAI\2.2.1\base

(see wiki FAQ to find this on different OS)

yes ok thanks i did it. I could choose the language in the later menus then where the list wasnt cut away. Still it switched to japanese at first again for some reason.

I confirm:
I have in config.cfg:
set s_language "en"
But all texts in game on russian. And this doesn`t depend from value of variable. Language doesn`t change if I change it, from menu or console.
