some of you might have noticed their game (0.9.3.1) crashing. Using the *_debug.exe I found out, "SPELLS.LBX" wasn't found, as is the fact.
The simple reason: There is no such file. Is probably only exists in US- (or perhaps canadian? :D ) versions.
As a temporary workaround, You can still make it start: Copy "SPELLDAT.LBX" to "SPELLS.LBX".
In the game you still get english spell names, and as this is the first time I run MoM IME, I can't say if the game works perfectly therafter or not, but have a try.
Reason seems to be, that the german (and perhaps other) versions of MoM were given files with different names, while others were left out.
Background-info: The localisation of the german original MoM was only partial, and reason for the mess might have been that with the english charset, some gui-elements would have been "broken". There are some bugs in the original german MoM because of this, IMHO, i.e. when trying to ressurrect fallen units during combat.
And additionally/unfortunately, someone hardcoded "SPELLS.LBX" into the exe. Who might have been that?
Perhaps there are other files as well, perhaps for other languages, who knows? Be clever, try to substitute LBXes as well, perhaps that might solve your problem.
Place to report bugs in MoM IME and suggest ideas for enhancements (please read rules before posting)
