Sid Meier's Pirates! (2004) help! French only

  katrina.oconnor.568 09:18 10 Sep 2008

After buying a new desktop I treated myself to some new games.

I bought Sid Meier's Pirates (2004) from and installed it on my new (French) pc.

Although I changed the language settings for the installation into English, the actual game will only play in French. Is Vista too clever for it's own good?

Is there anyway I can change the language settings (there are no language settings within the game menues) so it will play in English?

Thanks in advance

You have a French copy of Vista, therfore the game will assume you want French (and thats all you will get)

If you have a full retail copy of Vista, you could re-install. If it's an oem copy, you are a bit stuck.

May be some help:

If you wish to change the language you must download a Multilingual User Interface Pack (MUI). Unfortunately such is only supported by Vista Enterprise and Vista Ultimate.
So if you have Vista basic or premium,then as KOConnor says,you're stuck.
