W C P L A N G version v1.0 Patch by Alex "Locke" Fong March 4, 1998 Changes the game and subtitle language... Ever wonder how come Prophecy isn't multi-lingual like in WC3? Well, it is, actually... there simply isn't a documented way in the program to change it when it is installed. This is where WCPLANG comes in. It modifies the LANGUAGE.IFF file, allowing you use the French, German, or English (if you haven't already got these <grin>) "version" of the game. Unzip the contents of the ZIP into your Wing Commander Prophecy directory and MAKE SURE THAT YOU'RE RUNNING THIS PROGRAM FROM YOUR WING COMMANDER PROPHECY DIRECTORY! OTHERWISE IT WON'T WORK!!! Apply the patch and run Prophecy. This was tested on the 1.05 (Final) version of Prophecy. It probably won't work on anything else... if it doesn't work, email me so that I could track down the problem. I can be emailed at firstname.lastname@example.org. BTW, since this program modifies LANGUAGE.IFF, something screws up, you'll have to recopy the LANGUAGE.IFF from your WCP CD #1.
