Registry not where it should be (SOLVED)
I tried to change the language from german to english in the registry because of some smaller graphic-bugs.

I typed HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE -> Software -> Volition -> FreeSpace but there is no "Volition" folder, only "Wing Commander Saga".

What´s wrong?

Re: Registry not where it should be
Do you have FreeSpace 2 installed, or just Wing Commander Saga?

 
Re: Registry not where it should be
Both of course, otherwise I couldn´t play FS.

Re: Registry not where it should be
That's quite odd. Which launcher are you using?

Re: Registry not where it should be
If you're running 64-bit Windows, the key is located here:

HKEY_CURRENT_USER -> Software -> Classes -> VirtualStore -> MACHINE -> SOFTWARE -> Wow6432Node -> Volition -> Freespace2

All mention of the FS2 registry key in this thread and the wiki needs to be amended with this information.
"Your fighter is running out of oil.  Please check under the hood and add more if necessary"
--strings.tbl, entry 177

"Freespace is very tired.  It is shutting down to get some rest."
--strings.tbl, entry 178

Awesome - thanks for that info, I've updated (one place in) the wiki with that info. (I can't update Jeffs post :()

Thanks, that´s the correct location.

But what is the key for the language? I don´t find an entry like "german" or "english".


Edit: I created an entry "Language" and set it to German. Now the bugs are gone!
