Subject Re: Installer language selection issue
Date Thu, 20 Dec 2012 21:16:28 GMT
I will try to get to it tonight.  It would be nice if you could add a hook
at startup (maybe command-line option or reading from the .xml file) that
overrides the language/locale default it picks up from the player/os.  That
would enable us to simulate what folks in different countries will
experience.  That would enable to you verify that the patch worked yourself.
Last time we went through this, I had to stop in the debugger and zap the
variable by hand.  It would make it easier to test if we could override in
some way.
