Locale Tool for Foreign Games
0xReki on 2019-02-07

I have old Windows games running. Some require the correct locale set to be even installed and run. And if you need multiple locales you’d need to reboot any time you change the locale in Windows. And with Windows currently needing up to 10 minutes to reboot for no apparent reason I thought there should be better solution to this. I found xupefei/Locale-Emulator. It’s perfect. It remembers what application I installed with what locale. And even if I need to change it, I can do that in the context menu.

Good Old Game: Anno 1602

Well, I suddenly got the urge to play Anno 1602: Creation of a New World (1600 A. D. in North America and Australia) again. While I could just play any current instalments of the series I do miss something quite vital in those: the micromanagement of crop-growing areas is not even possible in those.

Super Mario Party — I kinda like it but…

I loved the first Mario Party for the Nintendo 64. But I have come to hate Mario Party series over the years. Every installment kept getting worse. The last one I tried was one for the Wii. That was like the nail in the coffin for me with the series. Now Super Mario Party for the Nintendo Switch hit the stores my flatmate still maganed to convince me to play this one.
