What I am trying to do is edit the English language file (english.lng) to insert different vehicle names using a hex editor (So I can have real vehicles for the trains and trucks, without using a myriad of GRFs) But I keep getting the "Can't read the language pack" error every time I use the editor to insert or delete a character. I have tried to "balance things out" (i.e. even out the amount of characters inserted and deleted) but to no avail. If I want to go the route that I am, will I have to:
A) Go about editing the language a different way,
B) Figure out using a GRF for the language, or
C) Some better way that I don't know.
Thanks for your time, and help.
That said, the tools to make langauges files are perhaps too well hidden since the website change earlier. The tool you need is called strgen.
But the way to go about this using language files would be to make a new "translation" that just replaces the vehicle names.
C: you can use the work other people put into it, like go to "download online content" and pick "original vehicle names" GRF
