Right for now ive got the following:

type tLStr = record
              msgID,
              msg : String;
end;

type tLang = object

              StrM : array[1..200] of tLStr;

              private lang : String;

              public procedure SetLang( pLang : String );
              public procedure Load;
              public function GetMessage(MsgID : Byte) : String;
end;

procedure tLang.Load;
var lngFile : TextFile;
    buf : String;
    IntBuf : PChar;
    HalfLen : Integer;
    cnt : Byte;
begin
 AssignFile(lngFile,'lang/'+Lang+'.lang');
 Reset(lngFile);
 cnt:=1;
 while cnt <= 5 do
  begin
  ReadLn(lngFile,buf);
  if  buf[1] <> '/' then
   begin
    GetMem(IntBuf,5);
    IntBuf^ := Chr(0);
    StrLCat(IntBuf, PChar(buf), 3);
    StrM[cnt].msgID:=IntBuf;
    FreeMem(IntBuf);
    HalfLen := Length(buf)-4;
    GetMem(IntBuf,(HalfLen+2));
    IntBuf^ := Chr(0);
    StrLCopy(IntBuf, PChar(buf)+4, HalfLen);
    {****}
    FreeMem(IntBuf);
   end;
   Inc(cnt);
  end;
  Close(lngFile);
end;

{****} <--- what goes in here to assign whatever is in IntBuf to StrM[cnt].msg ???

I just cant seem to figure out how this works...
Need some help plz

Perhaps:
    StrLCopy(Pchar(StrM[cnt].msg), IntBuf, HalfLen);
???

hmm,

looks like you come from java-side.
i guess there is terrible easier way in delphi.

and provide a sample of your filecontent

Hi,

StrM[cnt].msg := IntBuf;

I think but kretzschmar is right. There are easier ways like:

...
  if  buf[1] <> '/' then
  begin
     StrM[cnt].msgID:=Copy(buf,1,3);
     StrM[cnt].msg:=Copy(buf,4,Length(buf));
  end;
  Inc(cnt);
...

Regards, Geo

StrM[cnt].msg:=Copy(buf,4,Length(buf));
should be:
StrM[cnt].msg:=Copy(buf,5,Length(buf));
in the code above because as I can see you are skipping the fourth character.
