UK board, US property titles?
Has anyone else experienced this? The board is the UK version, with the Brit train stations and all that. But announcements during gamplay refer to the US titles.

I don't care which they use, I know both boards, but is there a way to get BOTH board and announcements on the same version?

Yeah, I bought it for the g/f and she mentioned this. Annoying. Will they update it, doubtful. It is EA we're talking about here.

Go into your monopoly folder in the steamapps and then the strings folder then rename strings_enUK.dat to strings_enUS.dat1
strings_enUS.dat to strings_enUK.dat
strings_enUS.dat1 to strings_enUS.dat

Do these renaming of files and you will get UK boards. The game reads the US string files for people in the UK.

The tutorial menus may be missing some text but who needs tutorials to play monopoly anyway.

Just wanted to say thanks very much for this advice! Worked great! Cheers! Is there a way for you to play a different version of the game? Like the American one with the American board?

Apologies for taking so long to reply. You would need to rename the US board file to the UK one. If you havent already done the fix then leave it as it is otherwise you would need to rename it back. You should then have american board and american strings.

This archive that you can download has the folders that you can copy over that will allow you to play american board american titles in the UK.

It also contains the folder of the fix I posted above so it is an easier method of doing the above fix.
