PChatPortable - language support ??

Whatever I do, PChatPortable keeps English as it's language.

Choosing the language at the installer screen - for me "Deutsch/German" makes no difference, the application keeps English as it's language.....

Is there a clue ?

OS Language

From the PChat Portable homepage:

PChat Portable homepage Language Switching: PChat will automatically appear in the host PC's selected language. The ability to select a different language will be added in an upcoming release.

Hmm

I think we'll need Zach to jump in then as it's supposed to pick up the host PC's language or it's ANSI setting (which are two different things). Is your OS and your system and use locale set to German?

System Locale

The system and user locale setup is independent of the OS language. So you could have Windows in German but your system locale set to English, for example. You can check it here:

sorry for my late reply, I'll

sorry for my late reply, I'll take a look into the matter, could be the fact that PChat isn't finding the locale folder properly. once I locate the issue I'll do a quick test release, the language testing previously was done based off of an old copy of XChat Portable which PChat is based off of.
Anyways I'm 90% sure of the issue is the location of the locale directory, I'll take a look, patch up the issue and do a test release.

your friendly neighbourhood moderator Zach Thibeau
