    Will this work on an ext filesystem? I've noticed the case of m.msg is different in the patch's win folder compared to that in the game itself, so applying the patch on an ext filesystem will take care. Presumably the code cares about which case the filenames should be.

    Yes, the game will work on ext filesystem (the case of filenames doesn't matter). Just be careful when applying the english patch to replace the files (don't create two files with the same name, but different case).
