And I thought this a genuine PC problem…


Same here on ps4. But I play in German and the Tags are in English after death.

It’s the same on the PS5, the names change to German names.
But I have to be honest, I find it really funny.
Although I live in Germany, my language has always been set to English because I am originally from the Netherlands. :vulcan_salute:

Strangely, this used to happen on the PC version a long time ago. It only happened on the Siptah map and it was during EA so there were plenty of bugs that were more important, but it was fixed (in patch 2.2 or 2.3) and I haven’t thought about it since.

When I do a search with German and English as keywords then there are several threads on all plattforms about this.

Also it seems to be old.
Once Hugo was writing its because which local is set on the server.

I have a g portal server in Frankfurt Germany. My game language is German. I get english tags. So even if its in Germany they don’t have German as local.


Maybe we should switch our servers… I have a Dawn-Server, play in english and the corpses get German names…^^

I don’t think it’s related to the server location. It seems that someone just make a mistake by importing the language phrases. I don’t try it in single player… I do this later :slight_smile:

It was not fixed, still happens on Siptah.

Sorry, I guess I wasn’t clear. I meant it was fixed on PC long ago, obviously it has not been, and still needs to be fixed for PS. :face_with_peeking_eye:

1: You’re back old sport! Where you been hiding? Haven’t seen you online a long time.

2: This been happening for a while. Also, check out the Riverwatch Camp. It’s dead.

My official PC siptah server still gets dead guys names in german it wasnt fixed

I’m back mate :smirk: been flat stick since Xmas. Nothing like 3-4 months of flooding rain to convince people to do something about their leaky roofs lol :laughing: had maybe 6 days off since start of year.

I only noticed the language change when I started up on exiled lands. Doesn’t seem to do it on Siptah. You guys still rocking fallout?

That weather was crazy. Felt like if it wasn’t raining, it was like a cyclone outside. Finally starting to get some normality.

I’m still on Fallout, Bob is on DayZ, he’s been trying to recruit me there. I pass on zombie games…

Reverend’s missus had a kid, so his life is over now. Matty has pulled a Copperfield, haven’t seen him on for ages.

We played on official EL for a bit, too many crazy people. Might have to get another private server going once this 3.0 drops. Stick to EL, Siptah wasn’t really doing it for me.

I gave dayz a shot but found it boring other than messing around with the bikes. I’d be in on a server again. Had some good fun on your last one. I still got mine but have that much trouble with gportal that I gave up on it. Forgot to take off auto renewal so can’t get rid of it lol. Yeah I still prefer EL to Siptah. Seems to be much more content and the different biomes are cool. Only thing Siptah has going for it was the surges which lose their appeal pretty quick. Poor Rev :joy: my youngest is 17 now so they run on auto pilot now. I couldn’t go back to crappy nappies and screaming :scream:

@Darkzombie, welcome back to the forums and the game, it’s good to see you back. To update you a bit, the bug reports are no longer handled on the forums. The best thing you guys can do, whether on PS, XBox or PC, is take a few screen shots (or videos if possible) and report any bugs through the Zendesk.

@DESTROYER, I’m shocked that people on PC are still experiencing this bug, as I said, I haven’t thought about it in roughly a year, as it has been fixed for me and everyone I know who plays Siptah. Perhaps it is a regional thing, but whatever it is, it needs to be reported to Zendesk so it can be addressed for anyone else as well.

When did they stop handling bug reports here? I see posts being answered and dev badged in the past couple of days?
