*Some features were applied manually for English, German and Portuguese due to them not working via Des Patch. All features were manually applied for Polish.
|Spanish (Latin America)||✅||✅|
*Using the European frontend, the language will be determined by checking your system language to see if it matches one of the following: English, French, Italian, Portuguese, Spanish, Swedish. If none of them apply, English will be used.
**May require changing your Windows setting "Language for non-Unicode programs" / "Język dla programów nieobsługujących kodu Unicode" to Polish. If needed, you will be prompted about this during installation.
