1) If you have traditional/simplified Chinese regional settings. Download zip, unzip, run PAL.exe from destination folder.

2) If you have English language settings, download and install AppLocale from the Microsoft page. Then download the game zip and unzip it. Run AppLocale, click next, browse and choose PAL.exe from your destination folder earlier. Choose 中文 (简体) from the list of languages offered. The game doesn't support traditional Chinese, afaik. Remember to create a shortcut and use said shortcut to run it under these setting every time.

In both cases, your first run will be a window in your top left corner. Right click the title bar of PAL.exe, choose Patch Settings, and adjust accordingly. Alternatively, you can edit the PAL.<yourusername>.ini file.

Profit. :P :P :P

P.S. You can use AppLocale for any unicode program.

You can double-click PAL.exe to run it even on an English-language Windows system. Windows XP/7/8 should be fine. If that gives you an error, we can help you sort it out :)

Ahh, then your computer doesn't have the right locale settings. Like God said, you'll need to install AppLocale
http://www.microsoft.com/en-ca/download ... x?id=13209
On Vista/Win7/8, you'll need to follow these instructions to install:
http://www.mydigitallife.info/workaroun ... ows-vista/

After installation, run it and launch PAL.exe from there.

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! :P
*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. :shock:

**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.

Thanks for the download link and instructions, how do I run the game in upscaled bigger window mode ? 640x480 on a 1920 x1080 desktop resolution is too small.

I've tried the Setting.exe supposedly for Pal95 but it didn't work. Isn't pal95 and 98 the same ?

If you're using Pal 98 downloaded from Whistler's post and opened the game with sdlpal95.exe, I don't think theres a problem with resizing the window by dragging the corners, but could be different for certain computers. Pal 98 is an easier version of the game.
