because this patch only works with the English version of SC2000, you might be interested to know that I made a "conversion" of this fix for the French versions of the game.
I also made a "RegSetup" batch file, as an alternative to "SimCity 2000 installer" by Aldude999. But I recently noticed that InstallShield Wrapper will allow a complete installation of the game from the original CD (!) 😊
Because there's at least 2 french binaries for SC2000, I made a patch for each one (need to compare CRC).
