Use a hex editor, DONT change the size of the file, that may be the reason why its crashing. It may also need 2 be signed after you have edited it

The game uses the europe fonts also, how do i know, if you delete them the game has a dirty disc error, everything else can be deleted fine, besides english and europe.

Just tried changing the "Are you sure you want to get into blabla etc" message, letters that have been changed turn in game to squares, exclamation marks to "‡". Good and bad: It's possible to change in game text, but don't know how to get correct letters :\
