  2. Julfo says:

    I am assuming this changes in-game sound files as well (eg battle chatter). Or were they always English? Before I buy I want to know I wont hear a load of russian ;P

    edit by cjs:
    yes this includes all english text and sound too.

    I know this is wrong place for this, but could someone help me to get cd-key? I made payment with Bank Transfer, and how I can get it? Tried with this AutoKey system, but there is no option such as “Bank Transfer”. Order ID #36765

  6. Beto Campos says:

    Sorry, I wrote it up in my language. Forgive my mind.
    I said that with that recent update the black screen is back and this patch no longer works, unfortunately. Is there, maybe, another way or newer patch?

  7. Beto Campos says:

    Sorry to comment again, but for everybody that this sollution is not working, I found something that worked for me. Same files, different sizes.

    Hope this helps!
