Subtitles[edit]

Enable simultaneous in-game audio and subtitles[citation needed]
  1. Edit <path-to-game>\RESOURCE.CFG.
  2. Add audioSize = 0K to the bottom of the file.
  3. Save and close the file.
  4. Run the game.
  5. When shown the opening menu, choose to start a new game.
  6. Save the game you just started.
  7. Exit the game.
  8. Edit <path-to-game>\RESOURCE.CFG again.
  9. Remove audioSize = 0K from the file.
  10. Save and close the file.

Notes

If you want subtitles without audio, follow the fix up to Step 3
Subtitles do not always display correctly


Not working on my end. If I load the save game of step 3, audio effects/voices are missing while subtitles are displayed. If I start a new game, audio/voices are present but subtitles are missing.

  1. 1.0 1.1 File/folder structure within this directory reflects the path(s) listed for Windows and/or Steam game data (use Wine regedit to access Windows registry paths). Games with Steam Cloud support may store data in ~/.steam/steam/userdata/<user-id>/10100/ in addition to or instead of this directory. The app ID (10100) may differ in some cases. Treat backslashes as forward slashes. See the glossary page for details.
