Why is the date format in the wrong order?

hello. Thank you very much for your hard work! i truly mean it.

i think i found something wrong tho, the date is in the wrong order, MM/DD/YYYY instead of what we use, well at least here in sweden which is the localized area i have everything set to but for whatever reason date is in the wrong order, DD/MM/YYYY and it’s confusing. is it fixable?

Pretty sure Lutris uses the system locale to display the date, atleast it does for the last played and installed at columns on my install. Check what LC_TIME is set to. https://wiki.archlinux.org/title/Locale#LC_TIME:_date_and_time_format

I’m sure its fixable. Probably just the implementation of the GNU “date” binary and in combination with your locale perhaps. If you take a good look at the date binary, it can be hashed out in like a million combos.
