View Full Version : How to enable more languages on Broken Sowrd 2

09-08-2010, 07:58 AM
I done this to listen and read the subtitles in spanish, but it also works with french italian and german. YouŽll need the following things:

Broken Sword 2

Notepad++ (http://notepad-plus-plus.org/download)
The speech and text files of the euro game. Download them here (http://www.mediafire.com/?y1ai3fzaftygl)

With notepad++ open bsord2.ini and add the fllowing comand after speech_mute=false


wher x is your language, following the next rule:

Spanish => es
German => de
French => fr
Italian => it
English => en

So if you want the spanish audio you must add language=es

Also chage the \\ from the line of the extra pach to \ so you can view the cutscenes.

After this save the file (make a copy first). Now join the parts of the files of the euro version of the game, extract them, and copy them to the game base folder overwriting the original ones.

Congratulations now you can hear and read the game on your languaje.

Broken Sword 3

For Broken Sword 3 you will need:

Video files: spanish (http://www.megaupload.com/?d=U49P0YBQ) | italian (http://www.megaupload.com/?d=LD3JY3ZG) | french (http://www.megaupload.com/?d=WU0QPOVA) | german (http://www.megaupload.com/?d=HTAWJAX9)
Speech files: spanish (http://www.megaupload.com/?d=J9JE8R5P) | italian (http://www.megaupload.com/?d=RG6C420O) | french (http://www.megaupload.com/?d=3G1SNET1) | german (http://www.megaupload.com/?d=ZC0A1HSV)
Game Languages exe files (http://www.megaupload.com/?d=C8LLYIQM)
Game data: 2 ("]1[/URL] | [URL="http://www.megaupload.com/?d=38X28XB9) | 3 (http://www.megaupload.com/?d=8LITM8YQ) | 4 (http://www.megaupload.com/?d=D198SJ3E)

First of all, download all file before start. When you have downloaded and joined the game data delete all files and folders except "data.pak". After thar into your BS3 folder you have to overwrite that file and afer that go into data, and after that into streams.You have to put there your language folder. go backwards to data and then into movies an after that into pal, youhave to put there your language folder of the game videos.

Now go to originl BS3 folder and rename "BSTSD" to "BSTSD_BAK", and after that put your game exe file into it (for example for spanish the exe is bs3pcESP, for french is bs3pcFRE, for german is bs3pcGER and for italian is bs3pcITA), after that rename your exe to "BSTSD" (without "") so steam can launch it normaly.

speech2 has .7z.001 and .7z.003, no .7z.002...

Firstly, thanks to ALCAMJI for the efforts.
Secondly, yeah, middle speech2 file is missing, maybe others, tried without it, but whichever of the language i choose by editing the bsword2.ini file with notepad++, the game always remain in spanish... :(
So if someone who successfully changed his game language to another one than spanish, or ALCAMJI himself can confirm the missing files and eventually upload them, it would be wonderful. :)
Count on me to enjoy the work you put on the third game too. ;)

I finally finished the translation tutorial. First of all, I want to apologise, the files I gave you only works for spanish, IŽm searching for the rest of laguages, secondl I want to say sorry for the delay, I was finishing my studies, so I didnt havo so much time to work on these. And finally If someday Revolution sells on Steam BS4 only on english, donŽworry, IŽll study the way to translate it to other languages.

Hi @ all,

do you know, how i can change the language on Mac - Platform? (Broken sword 2)

There is no bsord2.ini in the gamefolder. And i don't find another File to change language.

Please help me.

(The Game is english, but i want play in german.)

please can someone fix the missing files for BS2 localization?

08-14-2011, 05:30 AM

08-17-2011, 12:11 PM

Hi all,

thanks for upload languages.I bought the triple pack. Waiting for the new BS2 which will be replaced with the version REMASTERED (as they say), here's another link (http://www.megaupload.com/?d=LOG863FF)for Broken Sword 2 italian voice pack. Just substitute the files after Steam installation. Works perfectly. Update the first post if you want.


Hope that Steam will upload all languages in future. On Revolution website are available all languages...why not on Steam?

Hey Guys, I uploaded the german speech and text files for BS2. Please just put all the 5 files into your Broken Sword folder and overwrite the existing files.

Download German Files NOW (https://rapidshare.com/files/3661651486/BrokenSword2_SteamVer_GER.rar)

Have Fun!

Is it possible reload files for translation?
Megaupload is dead. : (

Same here. TS, please upload BS 3 localization files somewhere else.
The topic is great.
