Issues fixed[edit]

German text[edit]

The Steam distribution is missing two files from the game's data folder: missiontext_en.sma and text_en.sma. This causes some important objectives (such as the task log in the strategic campaign) to show German text rather than English text.
Change language settings[1]
  1. Right-click the game in the Steam library, choose properties.
  2. Open the language tab.
  3. Change from English to Spanish.


This fix also activates the startup videos.
Once the language setting is changed and the files downloaded, you can rename them or back them up.

  1. 1.0 1.1 When running this game without elevated privileges (Run as administrator option), write operations against a location below %PROGRAMFILES%, %PROGRAMDATA%, or %WINDIR% might be redirected to %LOCALAPPDATA%\VirtualStore on Windows Vista and later (more details).
  2. 2.0 2.1 File/folder structure within this directory reflects the path(s) listed for Windows and/or Steam game data (use Wine regedit to access Windows registry paths). Games with Steam Cloud support may store data in ~/.steam/steam/userdata/<user-id>/11250/ in addition to or instead of this directory. The app ID (11250) may differ in some cases. Treat backslashes as forward slashes. See the glossary page for details.
