so, I just installed and started playing paraworld, but there is a weird bug. not only are the quest names just a jumble of letters but all written dialogue, including subtitles, are replaced with the word dummy in all caps. there is also the problem of all the health bars being replaced with just a blue bar that sits there, not allowing me to see the health of anything.
are you using original game/boosterpack, or specific mods, like cep/mirage?
anyways, if its happening with normal game, then either your localization files (translated texts) are missing, or you need to check which localization code is used in your settings.cfg, and which files are actually included in your installation, and if they are different (like us-uk) then fix it
if only using specific mods are causing this problem, then the mod's files must be changed - for example mirage users often encounter this problem)
tell me, which case it is, and i will give you further instructions
