I got this game to run on windows 7 in English with easy steps, in case anyone wants to know ill explain it here:
After downloading the official PAL 98 (Thank you for sharing the link
I've been searching like crazy for this game), I went to this site after stalking many post on here (while getting lost
) also I would like to thank Rapid's input for the link) for what I think is the 99.99% english translation for PAL 95 which works quite well for PAL 98 as well: http://dl.openhandhelds.org/cgi-bin/caa ... ,0,0,1,499
*I got confused at following instructions with Rapid's post, so heres the exact steps:
Download the file (called tlosaf_v12-caanoo.rar) and extract, you should get a file named tlosaf and a notepad info tlosaf.ini (I don't know what that is for so I kind of ignored that). Inside tlosaf click on the files: data-> lang -> en. Inside the en file copy m.msg, sss.mkf, and word.dat and then use those to replace the old ones in your extracted official PAL 98 file.
Then I went to http://sdlpal.codeplex.com/
(again many thanks for the link), go to downloads tab that is beside the source code tab and then go to the right side and click on "other downloads" then in the page you should see under recommended download: sdlpal95-test-win32.7z. Download that and extract it into the PAL 98 game file.
Your game files should have sdlpal95.exe. Click and play!
*Because you can use sdlpal95.exe instead of Pal.exe, you have no need for AppLocale.
**If you use Pal.exe instead of sdlpal95.exe, it might give "error accessing the system registry, Unexpected error; quitting"
(There were no problems with the text on my HP and my friends Acer, but it could be different for certain computers)
*Aside from posting it here, I'll try to post it also somewhere else on the forums so people know and don't have to get lost like I did.
**Also if anyone knows where to get the XP version of the game, how to patch the english patch, or has an sdlpal for the xp version that can run on windows 7, I would be greatly appreciated.
