If you're getting blank messages, H.sie's patch is incorrectly installed. Specifically, the addition to the enmenu.txt. file.

I thought that too and redid it, what I've just came across is I think SH3 commander is changing it when it starts the game as I have checked the files before starting and then after and that looks to be the culprit. Not sure where in its configs it's getting the data though

Load the parts of the enmenu.txt file you want into the static settings.cfg file in your SH3 Commander cfg folder. Be sure to put it's path into the static settings file, just look at the other things in there and you'll see. I.e., here's mine: [data\Menu\en_menu.txt]


They'll get used for sure then. I had the same problem.

Could you please share a screenshot of the static file that you did with the STATIC| thing regarding the blank bdu message?

Here is the procedure:
-choose what message(s) from the en_menu.txt game file you want to load in the SH3 Commander static settings.cfg file. They will be used instead of the same ones in the en_menu.txt file in the game.
Path to the en_menu.txt file is <game install>data\menu. If you use some other language file instead of English it is in the same location and would be used instead of the en_menu.txt file in the examples below. The "en" in en_menu.txt means English. German i.e., would be de_menu.txt at the same location.
Path to the static settings.cfg file is SH3 Commander\cfg.
-You then write the path to this message in the static settings.cfg file in a section headed with the path to your en_menu.txt file. Open the static settings.cfg file and you will see the format required.
Section Heading example: [data\menu\en_menu.txt]
-The desired messages go immediately under this section heading.
Example: Say you want to change message #514 in the en_menu.txt file to read something else. It would go in the static settings.cfg file as:

[data\menu\en_menu.txt]
STRINGS|514=<the message text>

Use the word STRINGS, not STATIC.

You can put as many messages as you want in the static settings.cfg file, to say whatever you want in the game.
Hope this helps, ask if not.
