Bastion is an amazing indie game and Supergiant Games has released a new update for it which addresses several issues reported by players and adding compatibility for other foreign-language translations. As always, this update will be applied automatically when players restart their Steam client. You can view the entire changelog after the jump.
The change list includes:
-Fixed an issue that caused Secret Skills to sometimes become unselectable after successive play-throughs of the game.
-Fixed an issue that could cause the Man-at-Arms achievement not to unlock when expected.
-Fixed an issue that could cause weapon upgrades of the same tier to both become selected in the Forge.
-Fixed an issue causing Bastion.exe to not exit cleanly as intended.
-Added custom language support for alphabets based on Latin, Greek, and Cyrillic, in support of requests for player-created text translations to other languages. To add a custom language to the game, follow these steps:
-Determine the two-letter language code according to ISO 639-1 List of ISO 639-1 codes
e.g. Portuguese = pt, Russian = ru, Polish = pl
The following example is for creating a Russian (ru) translation.
-Navigate to Steam\steamapps\common\bastion\Content\Game\Text, and make a copy of HelpText.en.xml called HelpText.ru.xml.
-Translate the text in HelpText.ru.xml from English to Russian. At the top of the file, make sure the line reads:
-Create a folder in Steam\steamapps\common\bastion\Content\Subtitles\ru
-Copy over the files in Steam\steamapps\common\bastion\Content\Subtitles\en,
and translate them.
-Launch the game with ‘-lang ru’ Launch Options

While he is a die-hard PC gamer, his gaming roots can be found on consoles. John loved - and still does - the 16-bit consoles, and considers SNES to be one of the best consoles. Still, the PC platform won him over consoles. That was mainly due to 3DFX and its iconic dedicated 3D accelerator graphics card, Voodoo 2.
