Oz Orwell is a ghost hunter who hasn't met with much real success. Watch what happens when he finds what he's been searching for.

Thanks Becky,
Wow what a great game. Just played a little while and I love it. Graphics are really good. The cursor is really smooth no jerking. Well worth $4.00. Best game I've played in a while for the price. Bert Jamin,has a WT for it to.

Mad, I have it in English and I didn't have to do anything. Did you have a choice when you installed the game. I don't remember if I did.
I read what they said about the game.("Game Default" will cause text to be displayed in Italian, "English translation" will display it in English

Mad,

I have Odissea by Median Design and I think Oz Orwell is set up the same way, so just go to the folder where you have it and click on winsetup. You have the option there to set the language.

hth,

Gil.

Mad -- once you've unzipped the file, there should be an "oz" folder on your desktop. Click to open it and then click on the "winsetup" file, as traveler notes.

There's a box that gives you various selections -- one of these is language (near the lower right). Select "English translation" and not "game default."

I had seen that set-up box and did opt for English - but not until after I'd started the game and discovered the foreign text.

So on getting confirmation here that using the box was the right thing to do, I uninstalled and re-installed the game and clicked on the box before I started playing.
And I now have text in English bravo

Thanks, all !! grin

That's interesting. This game installs? Odissea doesn't. It's like the AGS games in that you play from the folder in which you extracted the game and to uninstall forever, you just dump the folder in the Recycle Bin.

I'm surprised you had a winsetup file if this game installs. Like I know all about it. crazy

Gil.

Sorry, traveler. I'm using the wrong terminology blush

I put the zipped download into my Downloaded Games folder and then copied it to another folder where I extracted the files.

So I should have said I deleted not uninstalled what I had extracted duh

Really a hard game couldn't have played without looking at the WT. Still playing.
