Translation Hotfix - (Still Build #20340)

We have just hotfixed to patch in all missing translations for currently supported languages. This captures all the new text added in last Thursday's patch as well as a few other strings that were missing translations.

Note:
We are currently evaluating what it will take to add simplified Chinese and Korean to the game and plan to have more news available soon.

Darkest Dungeon / The Crimson Court Build #20340

Build #20340
  • Fix to being unable to enter a door immediately after unlocking

    Build #20325
    The Crimson Court

    Note: Some of the few remaining Crimson Court text strings are currently being translated--in particular, some of the subtitles. We expect to post those new translations in a few days.

    • New ‘Gather the Blood’ quest: the Courtyard will now regularly proc a quest that does not require an invitation. You can reliably loot bottles of The Blood in crates here, and get some practice against the Courtyard enemies.
    • Reduced blood drops some due to new blood farming quest. Will continue to monitor blood supply metrics.
    • Crimson Curse proc rates from monsters reduced somewhat.
    • Curse Contagion chances increased in buildings - make sure to properly quarantine!
    • It's now possible to have two Rat Carcass trinkets in your Estate at once - delicious!
    • Fanatic now drops “The Cure”, a consumable which can remove the Crimson Curse from an affected hero. The fanatic’s loot table was also punched up up with a bunch of cheddar (crests).
    • Courtyard bosses no longer give the curse since they're going to wipe it anyway if/when you beat them.
    • Implemented a first pass at reducing party stoppages when transitioning Curse states. This should smooth out the gameplay significantly. We’ll continue to monitor.
    • Refined Curse act-outs and stat changes to create more identity at each stage.

    Main Game Misc and/or Crimson Court Bugs:
    • Updated idle animations for Plague Doctor
    • Shrieker Steal Trinkets event now properly set to post-week 42. Other
    • Shrieker event now restored to previous settings as desired.
    • fix to masochistic camping meal balk (string name errors)
    • added a max currency of 2 billion (2000000000) so as to stop roll over problems
    • replaced missing strings
    • Death's door debuffs should no longer disappear after restarting game in a battle
    • Double checks that districts have been unlocked in the case where saving failed (actual case of this happening)
    • Fix to controller not having campaign selected by default.
    • Fix to missing sfx on warning confirms.
    • Fixing tray display overlay problem
    • if hero receives 0 dmg, no longer checks death's door and treats it as if no damage was taken at all. Still displays 0 in game
    • localization string update, adding the '+' symbol to positive dmg and crit mods
    • making sure subtitles play when the narration system isn't initialized.
    • Remove flavor text description in sanitarium and activity log when explicit buff description is active.
