Oh! Thank you so much!
Ok I even modified the field.fs and renamed "fre' into 'eng". When I load the save it freezes. Shows the loading icon and stays there... I'm on windows 7 non Geforce patch. Everything else works great!
Ok this was a mix of my mistake and misinformation... When you import or replace the files with Deling editor select compress and do not change the name of the files to start0.fs etc.. Leave it as it is. I was confused because when I saw my files they had the digit "0" after "start". So just replace the files with the current name. It works now. Though I cannot understand qhat the debug room is used for... haha... and how do I quit the game without alt+f4
I needed to clear this out because advanced users might be confused when they see the file name.
Ok... as I imagined... now it cannot begin a new game...:

So how can I edit the start.fl? Maybe if I edit the names it will be fixed...
I edited the names but now both the debug room and game intro freezes... I'm going to revert to the original files... what the heck...!
