You can maybe try this option here > http://forum.1cpublishing.eu/showthr...ussian+english

If that doesnt work then likely he will need to get the registration key changed by Steam from a russian key to english through steam support.

You have the Russian version installed.

You need the EU version.

If you made a mistake in Steam with the local language Steam would be in Russian.
The Russian version is a single language installation only.


@ Richie if you have the English version you can send your maddox file to them, it will convert it to English till the next patch is out, obviously the EU versions a better permanent solution.

It is still legitimate with Steam as the games been purchased with it own license key, the file converts the Cyrillic to English text.

He should register on here. Thanks very much you two.

Worth checking this old thread about converting Russian version by replacing maddox.dll (at the end).

If he purchased the Russian version by mistake he should try to return it and get an international one. Otherwise he has to replace maddox.dll after each patch. I do not think it is 100% legal or ethical because Russian version is cheaper as it is published by 1C, not by UBI.

Maybe the maddox.dll solution will not work one day at all as UBI probably fights piracy to get more $$$.

We'll find out when he reads it tomorrow.

jimbop 01-25-2012 08:20 AM

Can't guarantee it works either. I bought the EU version by pre order but got the Russian version when the epilepsy filter fiasco was revealed. Ended up being a wasted purchase after the epilepsy filter was made optional anyway...

Ataros 01-25-2012 09:05 AM

BTW how does he know it is Russian? Some European countries also use Cyrillic alphabet IIRC. In this case he can just switch language in Steam probably.

Richie 01-25-2012 11:57 AM

I don't know yet. This is pacific time in BC Canada still only 4:55am lol. What I don't understand is where he would get a Russian game?
