I think you need to change the Languagex.dll make your own empires.dat file.

I am not 100% sure that the empires.dat file will work so I recomend changing the languagex.dll file

Yep, Language.dll and language.dll can be edited to change unit names. These can be edited with a unicode editor such as Pebble32

Fixed.

You may want to take a look at this article on the language.dll itself and more importantly this article on editing the language.dll.

If you ask one of the forumers very nicely (espically Zapdotep) they might be inclined to either guide you through the process or even do it for you. (Gumble is hoping for the same thing.)

Too many people say far too much about Gumble. They also claim Gumble says far too much which isnt true.

One man's truth is another man's lie. Seek TRUTH to escape this moral mire.

'Experts' try to analyse human behaviour and the human condition and make grand conclusions. - Its the same as the guy who explains why a joke is funny and kills the joke.

Or I could offer. :P

But seriously, Gumble, you only need ask. I am well acquainted with the language files and editing them is a piece of cake.

I probably couldn't do it for anybody but I can certainly help anyone that needs it.

I use Resource Hacker - I believe it can be found in the granary.

Whether you use pebbles or resource hacker, you shouldn't find the process difficult. Simply search the unit name you want to change and then edit away!

Each string has an ID number, with each range appropriate to the following (these are approximate ranges):

5000's - Name of unit
6000's - Scroll-over command button text (train villager etc)
16,000's - Hotkey/shortcut key
23,000 - 24,000's - Lookup name used by the EMPIRES.HLP file
39,000's - Popup help box text for unit
40,000's - Popup help box text for unit train command

You can also use AoEd/RoRd to change the name of a unit for a specific civilization if you need to for a scenario.
