How To Start MRO in English

Post by Mugen on Sat Dec 17, 2011 3:07 pm

Ok guys due to the increasing filesize each modified file brings and the launcher will check and download, I have decided to go an other path how to play in english.

Follow these steps:
  • you need Metal Rage Online already installed
  • download the attachment (like into E:\Downloads\MRO_english)
  • unzip the attachment (like into E:\Downloads\MRO_english\startup)
  • select both unzipped files (switch.cmd / current_language.txt) and copy them into the mainfolder D:\Program Files (x86)\MetalRage Online* (same place where MetalRageLauncher.exe exists)
  • rightlick switch.cmd and create a shortcut to the desktop

* I recommend Windows Vista / 7 / 8 users to install the game NOT on C:\ but on any other drive (D:\ e.g.) due to trouble with administrator rights
(you can simply move the whole directory to an other drive)

Using modified files:
For using modified text-files look at this thread: [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
For using modified UI-files look at this thread: [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]


Start the Game:
  • start the launcher
  • let the launcher check the files
  • when the launcher has completed the check run switch.cmd
  • start the game (middle button at the launcher)

End the Game:
You should not forget to run switch.cmd after you have finished playing MRO otherwise you still have all english files active and the launcher will take a huge time on next startup if you notice that issue at the next check, just close the launcher (right button next to the start button or press the X) and run switch.cmd

How is it working and why so complicated?
- Because the launcher is checking each file's checksum it will download and try to replace modified files during the check. Due to the increasing time at this check we are now working with switch.cmd to avoid this increasing time for starting.
- The switch.cmd ist just a batch-file which renames active chinese files to chinese backup files and inactive english files to active files or the opposite if the game has been closed. No, there's no troyan, you can rightclick the switch.cmd and check the code when opening the file - it is plain text.
- Each time a switch is done, the current active language will be written into current_language.txt which will be checked each run of switch.cmd

For those of you, who have currently english files in the gamefolders better download the original .twt and .dds files and replace them with the current ones and then redownload the modified .e_twt and .e_dds (follow the specific tutorial's instruction) to use the new system.

For questions or troubleshooting please use the following thread:

BTW: THIS is how it currently looks Wink
