A small update (5mb) is available that will bring your Steam copy to version 1.5.
This includes Russian, Portuguese, Hungarian & Finnish texts in the game (select from main menu > options or via setup/winsetup > language).
You can also select Polish but this language is not working fully yet.
Please be aware these are all translations written by fans - a big thanks to them & their hard work and enthusiasm. As such there may be some small errors, which we will work to fix asap. The translators will be working from this update to smooth out their translations. So there may be some additional minor updates in case of spelling/grammar tweaks to the translations etc (and hopefully a fully working Polish language) over the next few weeks.
In the meantime please do try the game with these new texts and let us know if there are any major problems. Please note no graphics have been updated or changed, they remain in English.
We also made a slight modification to the translation file names, as we heard that some computers were having difficulties recognizing the filenames. No other changes have been made.
Version 1.5 is currently only available on Steam. An update for DRM-free copies is planned for the near future. We may try and add even more languages in the future. Further announcements will be posted of any new language updates.
Sorry if this has caused you any inconvenience but thanks for being patient whilst we get these additional languages working. regards!
PS. As always, if you have any major issues especially relating to this update, please make a post on the discussions board :)
Note to our kind translators who may wish to fix their TRS file: You may notice in tutorial section the words get obscured by the images of keyboard buttons etc. We need you to find shorter words as the graphics cannot be easily moved around. Try and use short words. This is noticeable in Russian version, where a long word at the beginning pushes the rest behind the graphics. In French, where the length of words are almost equal to the English counterpart, there is little problem here.
We have made an update to your current version 1.4.
1. Resizing of fonts to ensure text is not cut off during dialog sequences/options
2. Potential fix for a game-breaking bug in chapter 3*
3. Italian language added, first language to be added since release of ver 1.4
4. Soundtrack now included! Can be found in Library > Music
This is currently a Steam only update. We have not released a DRM-free update or update to other providers at this point.
Please understand that over the next couple of days things may not be fully functional. We will of course work to rectify them. As far as we are aware, Save Games still work without any problems.
Please also be aware that WINSETUP has also been updated a little, with new Advanced Options. You may need to fiddle with the settings again if you see large borders, using Advanced > Show top & bottom borders etc.
Linux version should also be working ok - speech files are now back (some users found they were missing right after the update).
We intend to add more languages over the coming weeks, so you may experience some other very small updates occurring over the next month.
Be aware that there is currently no update to the save/load system, so save slots are still limited (roughly 50). But we are working on this for a future update, to include a "Max slots" alert & the ability to delete slots. In the meantime, we strongly suggest newer players to move/delete old save game files (typically found in My Documents > My Saved Games > The Cat Lady)
Thanks for your patience and sorry for any inconvenience.
* Please let us know about any strange issues/bugs/dead-ends that happen in Chapter 3 or 4 (typically things relating to the shower) - or in relation to any of the other fixes in this update. Again we're sorry if this happens, please help us work through it & fix them!
Bonus update: We have included the full OST as part of your Steam purchase. You'll find it in Library > Music (an update may be required).
We'd also like to add news of the sad passing of Astrid Beulink today who had been battling cancer. In 2013 she visited AdventureX (expo run by Screen 7 in the UK) and chose The Cat Lady when winning a prize in the end raffle and asked Michalski to sign it - it was the first time he had ever signed an autograph! Astrid's energy and enthusiasm for the adventure game scene, genre and The Cat Lady will be sorely missed, but will not be forgotten by myself, Michalski & the adventure game community. Rest in peace x
