Hi all!

I'm new here and I have a simple question...
Are these old DOS games localizable, translatable?
Is there a tool to edit the texts of the games?


Many thanks if you can help,

Naw, most DOS games are pretty much a tight package, meaning that practically the only way to translate them is to do some serious reverse engineering.

Just open some files in a hex editor and make sure the length of the edited text stays the same.
