I hope I landed this topic in the right place.
So the thing is I'd really want to play Ja2 in German language, but I only own a regular English copy.

Tried to patch it with the german patches (it was from 1.10 i think to 1.12 German) and then paste over the latest German stable 1.13, but in the end i've got the

Ja2 Fatal Error

Could not create video surface from file: German\Splash_german.STI

(there are some other datas of the error)

I was just wondering if I can just find a work around this, for example if I could just have the text in German and maybe voices still with English (I know, the patches and the 1.13 don't contain voices so I am not looking for that).

Any advices?

It should work. Just do the following

1.) Install English JA2
2.) Download 4870 German Full Stable Release and install it in your JA2 installation folder. Overwrite any existing files
http://ja2v113.pbworks.com/w/page/4218334/Downloads
3.) Download German 4870 Bugfix and install it in your JA2 Installation directory. Overwrite any existing files
4.) Start the game

BTW, do you want help us translating texts from English to German for stable German 1.13 version?

Hi there,

I know this thread is a bit older, however, I am facing a quite similar issue as described above.

The thing is, I downloaded the 1.13 mod (current revision no. 8647), which seems to be in English. Since I have the German version of JA2 installed, I do now see some kind of weird Germish language mixture in the game.

In Depri's thread (Depri's Builds and Packages - Get your combat supplies here!), I found the information that there are international versions available as well. Having downloaded the German file (called JA2_8601_German), I see the same fatal error listed above.

I think this could be related to the build versions - current build number is 8647, the German file is showing the number 8601. Since the German zip file is very, very small, I assume that this is just some kind of collection of language files to be installed in addition to build number 8601. Am I getting this right?

Where do I find that complete build?? I searched the whole Bear's Pit onedrive folder, the only build with a number somewhat close to 8601 I found is number 8609.

I've been trying to get this mod to work for one and a half days now and I'm starting to get a bit confused over build numbers and things to install. Any help you guys can offer will be greatly appreciated!

Thanks a lot!
