  1. Changing languages in games (like Prey via Gamepass) on my GERMAN Windows 10 laptop to...


    Hello folks,

    back in the days, you simply changed the language during the installation process. Job done.

    Nowadays (Gamepass Ultimate here) you are either locked to the regions language or locked out of a folder.

    - Origin (back then) in Poland: Russian and Polish only which is redicilous in games like Battlefield
    - Now EA another example: I can only buy the Polish version of FIFA with no option to change the language (both speech and text) to english
    etc.

    The only platform allowing this for most games easily is Steam.

    Now, I'm totally messed up mentally how to change the language. The game I'm asking about is Prey. The audio is english, but the damn text is in german which messes up my mind.

    I tried finding the folder of the game which seems locked behind a folder (WindowsApps?) and I'm not even sure about it. Access to that folder would give me the possibility to swap the damn language files. Then I found a mod... but this mod can't find the folder of the game with the *.exe file. I'm about to go nuts.

    What in the gods name is happening? Why is this such a complicated matter? I don't want to change my systems language (which I use for work) to english, I just want to change the text's language from german to english in Prey. Seems like impossible in these times good lord.......

    Most threads which I've found are simply locked down by a Mod with NO REAL ANSWERS as to how to change the damn language in a game.
    Well and here I am hoping to know something what I might miss.

    Greetings,

    Cabal

    :)

    Changing languages in games (like Prey via Gamepass) on my GERMAN Windows 10 laptop to ENGLISH while living in POLAND. Can this be any more complicated?

    Hello dear Gamer, first it's a pleasure to be able to help you today.

    My name is Vinicius.

    I am a gamer and independent advisor on the XBOX community platform.

    Hey Cabal, how are you today? Hope you're well.

    So, unfortunately, the gamepass installed games are impossible to edit their directory, because they are in this very folder (WindowsApps) and the Windows does not allow it to be edited. :/ In game, there's and option for you to change the language of the game and also the subtitles. You did look for it, but do not find it?

    Region / Language Options

    I Agree too. I'm german, but would like to change the language to english because of Kinect commands that work better for me in english and because i like to use english language in games (because the german translation isn't that good in games/movies).

    But i still want to use the german store and live servers.

    Hey phoenix,

    My windows 10 was also on English. But if you look in the language settings via the windows 10 settings app you'll see that there is a seperste entry for "app language". Even though my regular language was set on en-us, this other one was set to a different
    language. Might be worth checking out. Putting this one on English us changed a few things. It turned the 24hr clock into a 12hr clock for example.

    Cannot buy anything stuck on USA

    If you're buying on the Xbox website, scroll to the bottom of the page, and in the lower left, check the country. If it's not Canada, click on the country and change it to Canada.

    On your Windows 10 PC, open the Start menu, click on the small cogwheel symbol in the lower left of the menu to open the settings.

    Go to "Time and Language" (or something similar. I'm using a German Windows 10, so my translation might be off).

    On the right side of the settings window for the time and language settings, go to "Region". Make sure that these are also set to Canada.

    Can't redeem a Code

    Hey Diego,

    thanks for your response.

    account.microsoft.com tells me that my profile is set for Germany.

    After the soft factory reset I selected everything as German or Germany: The problem stays the same. When I type in the code it says in German that the game may not be available in this language region. It also shows
    some errorcode or something like that at the bottom K86aZUHRXUyKYP0X.21.6.9 2018/09/20 - 19:16:07 UTC

    Regarding the link about how to change the regions:

    Windows: Region Germany, Language German

    Xbox: The same

    Currency in the Store on Windows : €

    Currency in the Store on Xbox: €

    Both in German.

    I searched for Halo Reach on the xbox store again, selected See price -> It appeared in German with the description of the backward compatibility and all -> And when I go to "continue" it takes a moment and then shows me the same window but in Spanish (and
    no credit card).
