I've just lost a days game play because of a stupid option that wasn't put in the game.
Why ignore the country setting on peoples PCs? We have different date formats because that is what our countries have settled on as their standard, so forcing everyone to use American date formatting is not on.
Even a manual choice between US format or ISO 8601 would be better than no choice.
Please, go and look at your sales figures, see how many copies of S&M you've sold in Europe and then tell us we're not worth a simple bit of programming like date formatting.
