works like a charm.
i love romcenter so much. thanks for still updating it! :clap:

one thing,
somehow it automatically chooses the language of my os, which is german.
but the translation is very bad, and i also always prefer english in all my apps.
i don't seem to find an option to change the language.
what can i do?

There is no translation yet for alpha release. Did you install version 3 over an older version ?
Delete or rename the 'language' folder to switch in english.

found "locale" folder. deleted that. now english. thanks for the help :)

when you hit final, will datfile reading from zips work again?

another thing, if you get around to it, would be cool if you could rename my nick from "-=Posix=-" to "posix". lowercase, yes ;)
