Configuring Dragon Quest X Settings

From Dragon Quest X

This guide will cover how to access the Dragon Quest X settings menu, as well as providing translated menus for each section.

How can I access the settings menu?

Two ways:

  • By default, the config executable is in C:\Program Files (x86)\SquareEnix\DRAGON QUEST X\Game\DQXConfig.exe
  • In the launcher, click on the purple Drakey on the right

Why does the settings page show "???" for all of the options?

If your computer locale isn't set to Japanese, Windows is unable to interpret the characters displayed in the various menus. Although this isn't an issue, it can make navigating through the menus slightly confusing. Instead of going through the hassle of changing your system locale, you can download a program called Locale Emulator to emulate an application with a specific locale.

Download Locale Emulator and run the LEInstaller.exe executable to install the software. Navigate to the config executable for Dragon Quest X (referenced in the previous section), right-click on it, highlight Locale Emulator and click "Run in Japanese". This will properly show the appropriate glyphs.
