Title: Hellgate London German to English
Post by: Norbert on Sep 22, 2010; 05:26 PM
Back in the days I bought the german version of Hellgate London, but due to the bad quality of the translation I downloaded the english language files and used those.
It worked well untill the 1.2 SP patch came out.

Ever since then, using my downloaded english files causes mixups in the string indexing. For example all the class names have been rotated down by one (Swordmaster being named Summoner and so on with the Marksman being called "Recon").
Pretty much every piece of text is messed up, except some places in the options screen.

I tried to delete the german files and leave only the english ones in before patching to 1.2, but the problem stays the same.
Unless someone knows how I can do it, I'm doomed to either play unpatched or in german :(
So far the decision went in favour of playing unpatched, but due to the revival patch only working on an already patched HGL, that's out of the question.... and the german translation REALLY sucks.

Does anyone know what I can do to get the english language files to work with the 1.2 version as well?

Let's see... You need to have english/your prefered language versions of the following files:

In your data folder:
hellgate_localized000.dat
hellgate_localized000.idx
sp_hellgate_localized_1.10.180.3416_1.18074.70.4256.dat
sp_hellgate_localized_1.10.180.3416_1.18074.70.4256.idx

In your language folder:
EnglishStrings_Install.xls.uni

After that all you have to do is open the data/language.dat file (e.g. via Notepad) and change "Language=German" to "Language=English"... That did it for me :)
Make sure to "install" the "language patch" BEFORE applying the original HGL 1.2 patch!

Ah, so that's the problem....
I only got the first two files and the Strings_Install, but not the other two.... though I did apply them before the patch.
Could you tell me were I can get the two sp_hellgate_..... files form please?
I tried searching for "sp_hellgate_localized" in both google and altavista, but neither gave me any results (apart from one deadlink and one asian page).

If I remember correctly I got my files from here (http://http://rs99.rapidshare.com/files/66594002/us-dateien.rar) (taken from a german HGL forum (http://http://forum.gamersunity.de/allgemeines/14864-hg-l-language-changer.html)). The package should contain all the "localized" files. By combining these files with the language files you already have you can create your own little language package you can use whenever you reinstall HGL. Just back up all the files mentioned in my post above and you're done :)

Some people claim that the two "localized" files aren't necessarily needed to change the ingame language, others report the game would only run correctly when those files were also replaced. The "localized" files are mostly responsible for "un-cutting" the game.

Post by: Norbert on Sep 22, 2010; 08:34 PM
That's exactly the pack I already have, with just 3 files, but not the two I'm missing :(

But just in case I tried it again anyway, with the files from that link.
Deinstalled HGL, reinstalled it.
Put the files in place, deleted ther german folder from Language. Now I started the game (unpatched) to see if it works, which it did.
Then I applyed the 1.2 SP patch and bang.... same crap as before. All the strings are messed up.

So it really must be the two sp_hellgate_localized files that fix it, but I still don't know were to get them from.

I attached a screenshot of how it looks ingame with just the Strings_Install and hellgate_localized.dat/.idx files from the US verison (cut smaller to fit into the forum specifications).

Ah sorry... mixed up the files :P
I'm currently uploading the two missing files
- sp_hellgate_localized_1.10.180.3416_1.18074.70.4256.dat
- sp_hellgate_localized_1.10.180.3416_1.18074.70.4256.idx
so you can download them. I hope this'll help :)

that's what you get for buying HGL in german :D
i bought it as UK import just for the language.




and the gore ofc... ahem.


man i can't even remember the last game i bought in german -.-
no, wait, i do: i bought nocturne as multi 5, including english - even though the german dub was great.
mhm i guess that doesn't count then.. so i'd have to say diablo 2 was my last german game.


edit
i am glad though that you can once more enjoy your (uncrippled version of) hgl :mrgreen:

Does this still work with the new Revival Patch.
The game didnt start anymore after patching the game with the revival 1.5 mod. So I changed my language data back to german and it worked just fine.

I'm also using the german -> english "patch" and it's working fine for me. However I did a clean reinstall of HGL before applying the 1.5 patch...

Hm I installed all patches and changed the language afterwards. Maybe thats the problem^^

You should install the "language patch" before installing the original 1.2 SP patch. As far as I know some strings will be modified by 1.2 so those will be missing from the english language files if you only install them afterwards.

So if you are using a "language patch":

You forgot install 2.0 patch;P
But ya thanks I know what ye mean^^
So the patch is only updating the files of the current language.

As the german version doesn't even contain any other languages, the patch CAN only update the current language which typically is german :)

Hm I did everything you said and while 1.2 runs on english with no problems, after patching to 2.0 I get missing string errors. That makes me believe that the english language packs are not getting updated by the 2.0 patch.

In your data folder:
hellgate_localized000.dat
hellgate_localized000.idx
sp_hellgate_localized_1.10.180.3416_1.18074.70.4256.dat
sp_hellgate_localized_1.10.180.3416_1.18074.70.4256.idx

In your language folder:
EnglishStrings_Install.xls.uni


Are you sure you have and replaced all those files with their english version?

Rapidshare took your upload down due to inactivity.
Could I bother you to reupload this?

Der "Patch" hier ist kein vollständiger Sprachpatch, sondern beinhaltet nur die 2 oben erwähnten Dateien (die fehlen in den sonst erhältlichen Sprachpatches meistens). Es wird weiterhin der eigentliche Sprachpatch benötigt, den es aber noch auf anderen Seiten zum DL geben sollte...

The "patch" archive I posted isn't a complete language patch. It only contains 2 files that are usually missing from all the other available language patches. You still need to DL the language patch itself which should still be available on other sites.

For those looking for the patch archives:

The file-upload.net links above to the English data files should still work fine. But I'll also mirror them locally in case they go away unexpectedly. Please be gentle with our bandwidth... ;)
