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?
