Per-game locales

I've been using PlayOnLinux and love how easy it makes using wine. Now I've hit a point where I would like to install some non-listed games that require being in another locale to display properly. This can be done by running 'LANG="ja_JP.UTF-8" playonlinux' however, this runs all of POL under that locale. Is there any way to set a locale for individual games through POL? If not, are there any plans for this support?

(Being able to set linux environment variables would be all that is required)

Where do you want to set environement vars?

If it's before running an installed software, it's already supported for the next version (4.0.18, available on the git for the moment)

Oh, nice! Being able to just set the LANG environment variable on a per-game basis will be very helpful.

Well, now that 4.0.18 is out, I took a look and quickly found the box that holds the commands to exec before running that virtual drive. I put 'export LANG="ja_JP.UTF-8"' in and... it didn't work. Hmm...

sorry to necro an old topic, but I cannot find where to enter commands to run before running programs on the virtual drive.


Did you ever get anywhere with this, Katherine1?

Did you check the wiki? It is in there. ;) I mean, the last post in this thread was from 2012, but the command should work, though.
