I have a chance to buy a copy of Gruntz via e-bay from Germany, I was just wondering if there is any way to change the voicez into English, Real Arcade is not working for me, I have managed to get the sound effectz working but not the voicez and I can't download the custom filez as there is no custom folder and I keep getting error on rez file message. I really want a fully working game so that I can enjoy every aspect.
I have now downloaded the levelz I have received, look forward to playing them.
You should be able to play them with the RealArcade version ... just do a "Make Folder" when in the Gruntz folder, and name the new folder "CusToM" (capitalization makes no dIfFeReNcE).
Just wish I could get the voicez working, would love to hear the commentz.
Even with the RealArcade version, I thought that it was possible to make the same sort of Option selectionz, and have background music, sound effectz and voicez. If you were to purchase the German language version of the game (or any other non-English language version), simply applying the screen resolution patch may change everything into English. I know that's what happenz when the Version 1.01 patch is applied ... but that option is not available to RealArcade version Gruntzerz.

It was easier than I thought All the Gruntz files are just sitting there on the CD - the installer merely copiez them.
Installing Gruntz on 64-bit versions of Windows
1. Create the folder C:\Games\Gruntz. 2. From the CD, copy the contents of the GAME folder to the newly created folder on your hard drive. 3. Also, copy the contents of the DATA folder to the Gruntz folder. 4. Create a shortcut to GRUNTZ.EXE by right-dragging to the desktop and clicking "Create Shortcut Here." Rename it if you want.
Now launch Gruntz! It will automatically create the required entriez in the registry. Moviez work, and levelz are playable.
(Tested in a virtual PC running Windows XP.)
EDIT: It seems this method doesn't create a Gruntz.sav file, and therefore unable to save games.
Something worth noting.... after installing with the files from the CD, you want to go ahead and install the 1.01 patch.
And, if you think you're a little smarter than you really are (like me), and are transferring a previously patched executable file instead of from the CD.... you also need to get the updated Gruntz.zzz file..... or once you get to level 6-4, you'll be unhappy......
