Hi, i´m a noob chef :D

Really usefull info for me. Thank you for this. I have some issues to translate a WWE kitchen (Ervius) to Swedish. Are you gonna do a guide for this as well? Would be really nice if you did. I managed to sort all things out except the files in Barbas_kitchen\OEM\BlackStone\041D as i ported them from a wm 6.1 HD ROM. A guide for this would really help me out, and i´m sure it would help moore of us unexperienced cooks..

EDIT: Admin should sticky it when its more complete :)

I do not cook roms, but if I would, I'd find this thread very useful, I guess :) Good work, would be nice to have this as sticky!
