Anyone who can confirm that if I buy 2 version of Catacombs from a Swiss Game shop. [A game shop in Switzerland :p] - And activate it on my accounts, can I still install it back in the UK?

Buy and activate there
Install and play in UK?

Or will I have to buy the expansions in the UK?

Going to visit family in Switzerland soon, and I visit a pretty big game shop there once in a while. Had about 40 versions of ToA when it got released over there.

if they're european versions they're fine (e.g. french or german versions)

will have to change your update.dat and delete a language folder to get the client running in english though.

How do you do that?
1: Go to the folder where you have installed Catacombs.
2: Delete the folder called 'Language'
3: Open the file 'update.dat' using any text editor such as Notepad or Word.
4: In the file are two URLs which will look something like -
5: Change the word 'german' (or 'french' depending on where you bought it) to 'english' in both URLs then save the file.
6: Connect to the game, you'll download a small patch then your client will be in English.
