I'm slowly inputting "Horror on the Orient Express" into RW, with the characters (players and some NPCs) into HL.

I'm hitting a problem in that not all the languages in Horror are in HL.

I did, at one stage, put a language (Japanese) into HL, but updates don't seem to have allowed me to keep it and anyway I've forgotten what I did to add that one.

Is it possible to add languages to HL and allow them to be kept when the software updates? I need Hindu, Turkish, Pashtu and several others. Does anyone have a solution for this?

(I should have said, I'm using 6th edtion.)

Please define "don't seem to have allowed me to keep it" - what happened? Are they just not there? Were there error messages? Updates will never destroy user-created data, because that is always stored in separate files, and HL doesn't overwrite them.



To create new languages, open the editor from the Tools menu, create a new data file in the editor, and save it to the default directory, then go to the language tab, and start making new entries, and press the Test Now! button at the top as you finish each one.

Thank you, that gave me enough information to find my previous language and add some more. Very helpful.
