If you are desperately looking to change the Need for Speed Most Wanted language from Russian (or any other language) to English or otherwise, you are at the right place.
The first thing you will need to have is ofcourse having the game installed on your PC ! I am assuming you are done with this step already. A language pack is what will do the trick for you . Following are some language packs that I could find on the internet available for free download.
Let’s quickly make a few changes to activate the required language pack.
Press Windows + R buttons to launch the Run Dialog.
In the Run command box, type regedit and press enter.
This should open the Registry Editor window.
From now on please be extra careful and don’t mess with any other registry entries than what I am showing below.
Go to the following path,
32-bit Windows: [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\EA Games\Need for Speed Most Wanted]
64-bit Windows: [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node \EA Games\Need for Speed Most Wanted]
I am assuming you are trying to change the language to English hence I will use the locale en_US. If you are trying for other language, this locale code will vary. You can search on the internet for the locale code for your language if you are unsure. Also this might help you determining the locale code you need.
So in the registry location mentioned above, you will find GDFBinary key. Double click to open it and set your required value, for example add GDFBinary_en_US.dll for English, GDFBinary_fr_FR.dll for French etc.
Now it’s time to change the Locale key, Double click to open it and change the value as you require. For English change the value to en_US, for French change it to fr_FR.
Almost there, just a little more
I think by now your language pack got downloaded. It is a zip file. Extract all the content to the game root directory.
For English, you need to extract from the NFS_MW_lang_EN.zip\EN folder and place it to the game root directory.
That’s it!! You are now all set to run the game in your preferred language.
Don’t forget to comment or say thanks if I helped you with this. Cheers and happy gaming !!
