When i try to edit this file "en_us.lang" in notepad I have issues getting it to work :sad.gif:
I have opened it with notepad, changed the names to what I want and when I save the save name is "en_us.lang"
and even my computer says it's a LANG file so how come when I put it in minecraft with my custom textures it wont work?
Buddy, the en-us.lang file has NOTHING to do with making textures. Changing it is like changing a class file. They have to go exactly where they should be, nowhere else, and you MUST delete META-INF for it to work.
If you want your custom en-us.lang file to work, you MUST put it in the minecraft.jar. Minecraft won't look for it elsewhere, you HAVE to replace the original for it to work. And you MUST delete META-INF or else you risk getting blackscreened.
Hardly. If it;s to rename some stuff so it fits better with your texture pack, just edit it, and use it like a standard edited en_us.lang. If you want to distribute it, go ahead. But it should be optional, in case people already have a custom en_us.lang file.
But yeah, unless you replace the original en_us.lang file inside the minecraft.jar, it's not gonna do anything at all.
