Extra content in localizations?


Recommended Posts

Recently I was looking through the MIX contents of the German TFD DOS Add-on, and noticed that the normally unused Hovercraft DOS icon (LSTICON.SHP) actually displays the hovercraft, whereas the English version of the game displays an APC facing west instead. I assume the new icon was added in the German version, or does it come from a later release of the English version?


This is not the first time a localized version of a Westwood game features differences from the original English release that are not actually related to the translation. The German version of Red Alert has a slightly different animation of electrocuted infantry, and there are a few unused sound effect files.


I wonder if more extra content can be found in localized versions of other games as well?
