Are you tired of the made up designations?
 
Do you want the real and original helicopter names back in your game?
 
Look no further!
 
 

Brief

Heliborne Collection - How to Restore the Original/Real Helicopter Names - Brief - 4C348E6 The purpose of this guide is to make the aforementioned procedure easily accessible and easy to follow.
 
 
The process may look confusing and finicky with the file directory rabbit hole diving and .xml editing, but in reality it is no different than finding a notepad file/.txt document and editing some lines.
 
 
The final product that you will see on your game client will be the real designations and original names that Heliborne had for its helicopters, with none left out and certainly no more replacement names.
 
 
I would estimate that while following this guide, the entire process should take under 10 minutes.
 
 
 

History / Context

Heliborne Collection - How to Restore the Original/Real Helicopter Names - History / Context - F74AB96On the 20th of November 2020, due to licensing concerns, Heliborne lost the majority of its authentic helicopter names and designations. Since then, there have been ways to restore these to the way they were prior, but only a few have been in-the-know on how to do it and also have the resources to.
 
 
 

Guide

Heliborne Collection - How to Restore the Original/Real Helicopter Names - Guide - 4BCB022The file that we will be editing is called ‘english.xml’.
 
 
Note well that your directory and Heliborne installation may look slightly different to mine due to me having tinkered with several files on my end in the past.
 
 

Locating

 
To find this file, simply navigate to your Steam library;
 
Right click on your copy of Heliborne, click on ‘Manage’ and then click on ‘Browse local files’
 
 
Heliborne Collection - How to Restore the Original/Real Helicopter Names - Guide - 61D98EF
 
 
Alternatively, you can also go to ‘Properties…’
 
Heliborne Collection - How to Restore the Original/Real Helicopter Names - Guide - 2B511CB
 
 
and then navigate to ‘Local Files’ and press on the ‘Browse…’ button.
 
Heliborne Collection - How to Restore the Original/Real Helicopter Names - Guide - A9909FF
 
 
From here, we are greeted by the game files. We want to edit legacy Heliborne/Oldborne, so we will open the ‘Heliborne’ folder.
 
 
Heliborne Collection - How to Restore the Original/Real Helicopter Names - Guide - 5FDE5D7
 
 
Then, ‘Heliborne_Data’,
 
 
Heliborne Collection - How to Restore the Original/Real Helicopter Names - Guide - C0DEE88
 
 
Followed by ‘Localization’.
 
 
Heliborne Collection - How to Restore the Original/Real Helicopter Names - Guide - FC6544F
 
 
Here we find ‘english.xml’.
 
 
Heliborne Collection - How to Restore the Original/Real Helicopter Names - Guide - EE21432
 
 
This is the file we want to edit.

 
 

Editing

 
 
To edit english.xml, simply open it in a document editor of your choice. I will be using Notepad.
 
 
As a point of information, you could, theoretically, change any text or similar UI element from here onwards (Things like the UI itself or the first person cockpit overlay require a different method, though). Whether you should or not is up to you; you can always verify your installation integrity to reset everything and any changes you make.
 
 
For the helicopter names, scroll down to the line pictured below. This is where the names start.
 
 
Heliborne Collection - How to Restore the Original/Real Helicopter Names - Guide - 0FF5BB2
 
 

<item code="Helicopter.Camo.Default">Default camouflage</item>

 
This is where the names end.
 
 
Heliborne Collection - How to Restore the Original/Real Helicopter Names - Guide - F932B4B
 
 

 <item code="Helicopter.LongDescription.Z-19">Combat version of the Z-9.</item>

 
 
Anything outside of these lines are separate (i.e. weapon names, map names, AAM/ATGM alerts, killfeed messages etc.) and if you really want to change them, do not touch the object’s name itself, only the second name, lest you get a tr_err.
 
 
Heliborne Collection - How to Restore the Original/Real Helicopter Names - Guide - F5C5D0C
 
 
The green is what you want to change if you wish to do some manual editing outside of the helicopter names, the red is what tells Heliborne what asset is being named by the green. Changing the red will break the system, as there will not be an asset that has that name, and so you will see ‘tr_err’ in game in place of the expected text (I added the green and red for the clarity of this guide, it will not be visible normally).
 
 

Replacing the names

 
Select everything from
 

<item code="Helicopter.Camo.Default">Default camouflage</item>

 
to
 

 <item code="Helicopter.LongDescription.Z-19">Combat version of the Z-9.</item>

 
and replace it with the code from The Fix. If done correctly, it should look like nothing has changed. Save and close your xml, then open up Heliborne to see the immediate results.
 
 
Enjoy!
 
 
 

The Fix

Heliborne Collection - How to Restore the Original/Real Helicopter Names - The Fix - 4B3FEE6Unfortunately, due to Steam guide character limit restraints, I will have to split the replacement text/code into five segments, each having a fifth of the code. The only other ways I could think of were arduous or would require even more file-diving (which then may make some that may not be well versed in computers rightfully suspicious about downloading strange files with odd designations), so since this guide is supposed to help as many people as possible, I have opted for the most straight-forward method; copy pasting.
 
 
How you go about this will be up to you, either simply individually find and replace the corresponding parts of the .xml one at a time, or create your own temporary .txt document and past all five consecutively into it, to then be able to easily replace the whole section at once in the .xml.
 
 
In the code preview here in the Steam guide, some text will be white and will be a clickable link. Do not click on them, they are not real links but Steam will still say they are. Don’t worry about it.
 
 
I apologise that I couldn’t make an easier process to follow, but I hope you share my opinion that doing some tedious copy pasting is worth the original Heliborne helicopter names.
