How to change Gears of War Language

To change language settings, just use unicode number in the lang.txt file. (file is in ..Gears of WarBinaries)

Here’s some (0=zero) :

0404 Chinese
0407 Deutsch
0409 English
040c French
0410 Italian
0412 Korean
0c0a Spanish

Only those languages are available.

    This works!!!!

    thank you very much!!!!


    go to the binaries folder and find the thing called "lang"

    copy and save it to the desktop (do this just in case)

    then open it and type in 0409

    that should get the game in english

    Hey guys, you have to do the following under Windows 10

    Go to Settings
    Then Time and Language
    Then Region and language
    Add English to Languages
    Then click on additional settings
    Click on Add a language
    Move English up on top.

    Now Gears should play in English. Also, you may have to change your overal system language as well.
