Lux Delux adds Chinese and Korean language translations

Lux Delux 6.56 update is now available for downloading. This update includes translations into Chinese and Korean languages.

Full Changelog:
- Added translations into Chinese (Simplified and Tranditional) and Korean.
- The /map command now works regardless of capital/lowercase cases.
- Better behaviour when winner-picks mode is on with no map list is set.
- Network hosts will auto-restart crashed games after 3 hours of inactivity.
- Better hooks for network clients to end team-games when only 1 team remains.
- Added translation kit link to language selection.
- Windows: update the included private JRE to 8_111.
- Linux: set the temp folder inside the launch script, for wider steam compatibility.
- Windows (Steam): included a TEST executable that sets the temp folder.

If you're on Windows and get an launch error, try running the "Lux Delux TEST" executable that's beside the normal one in the Steam-Lux install location.

–– Lux DLX Mobile Updates ––

We have just released updates to both the iOS version and Android version of Lux DLX. It now features enhanced maps, tweaks to fit modern devices, and Biohazard game mode on all platforms, to nuke out random countries on the map each game! We'll be continueing to tweak the mobile versions going forward, please let us know if you encounter any issues.

–– Italian Unification map ––

Italian Unification is a newly available map, created by our beloved cartographer Mark Bauer. You can find it inside the map download area of Lux!

"After Napoleon's defeat, the Congress of Vienna returned Italy to a patchwork of kingdoms ruled over by the prevailing European powers. Nationalism begins to rise across the countryside as cries for a Risorgimento intensify. Revolutionary movements take hold and soon the entire peninsula is at war, each faction with their own visions of a new unifed Italy."


Hope to see you online during this year's Luxtoberfest!
