I'm not sure what to do then
I have the same problem however I have translated most of the necessary things for it server sided but I can't use the shop for cash items as the buttons have disappear.
is this server can be loaded in a virtual machine.. because using it ing my own pc makes my mmc.bat and smc.bat says can't load local.ini. I haven't tried it in other pc because there is no available. so instead I'll planning to use virtual machine. do you think it will work easily?
how do you translated the language to english in server sided?
i'm thinking that the NPC,Map,Item name are all stored in the database in chinese language. Did you edit anything in the database for the NPC,Map and Item name???
