IDEA: Switch language of game GTA V
« on: November 07, 2018, 02:12 PM »
A registry-hack. Switch from de-DE to en-US and back. Before starting the game. As easy as that. Once you know how to do it.
Here is an example where to find the language settings. I´m convinced that would be very helpful for millions of gamers. Expandable to many languages.

Create a shortcut for: GTAVLanguageSelect.exe

Steam Location: C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Grand Theft Auto V
Non-Steam Location: (Wherever you installed it)

Load it up...choose your language and click ‘Update and Close’ or ‘Update and Run’.

Why re-invent the wheel? :P

If Klingon is not available what's the point?  ;)

Faster to reach goal "quick change language" would be this approach I guess:

open regedit
walk where that language string is defined
left tree view = right click on it, select export selected
save it on desktop for real fast access or elsewhere and create shortcut for it (on desktop no shortcut needed)
back in regedit
change language to whatever else value
right click on it, select export
save it on desktop for real fast access or elsewhere and create shortcut for it (on desktop no shortcut needed)

I prefer to save as Win9x-Nt4 format, than it is plain text and you can modify with Notepad.
Open both files with Notepad and remove all definitions that not belong to your language-hack.


the end.
sorry bad english and Delphi are my hobby ;)
politeness is not one of my strengths in writing, just because it sounds rough doesn't mean that I mean it rough.

Thanks for the effort. That was a quite redundant question, because there is GTAVLanguageSelect.exe.
Danke für die Mühe. War eine ganz überflüssige Frage. weil es ja GTAVLanguageSelect.exe gibt.
Strange only that nobody knew about it in the german GTA-communities. :)
