Supergiant Games has released a new update for Bastion, which adds the new Stranger’s Dream scenario and other new content, and addresses several issues. This update will be applied automatically when players restart their Steam client. The change list includes:

Product Update - Valve
Supergiant Games has released a new update for Bastion, addressing several issues reported by players and adding compatibility for other foreign-language translations. This update will be applied automatically when players restart their Steam client. 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

Product Update - Valve
  • Fixes to several possible crash issues based on user-submitted reports. Thanks again to everyone who's taken the time to send crash logs.
  • Fix to typographical error in the Memorial Vigil, "The Skippers".
Product Update - Valve
  • Updated the default "Slinger-style" WASD controls to make the character move relative to the isometric perspective.
    Note: In the previous update, this required using a commandline parameter "-isomovement", which is no longer necessary. To restore the original setting, use the new commandline parameter "-orthomovement".
  • In-game menus now respond to right-clicking as well as left-clicking.
  • Added support for resolutions greater than 1920x1080, at which visual issues with the background visuals could occur.
  • Fixed several issues that were causing the game to crash for some players.
  • Fixed an issue in Burstone Quarry that could cause players to get locked out of the level's final area.
  • Fixed an issue in Mt. Zand that could cause players to get locked out of the level's final area.
  • Fixed an issue in Zulten's Hollow that caused the level's weapon pickup animation not to play.
  • Fixed an issue in the Bullhead Trial where the text stated that the Gold Prize requirement involved completing the trial having taken less than two hits instead of three.
  • Fixed an issue causing the opening splash screens to overlap when running the game using the "-nofixedstep" commandline parameter, which unlocks the frame rate.
  • Fixed a rare issue where weapon slots at the Arsenal could become unselectable.

Product Update - Valve
  • Fixed an issue in which the game would not detect local saved data if players lost their connection to Steam cloud storage.
  • Fixed an issue where remapping the Left Trigger and Right Trigger gamepad controls fired the default commands unexpectedly
  • Fixed an issue in Roathus Lagoon that could cause players to get locked out of the level's final area
  • Added support for several advanced command-line parameters (aka Launch Options in Steam).

To set Launch Options in Steam, right-click on Bastion in your game library, select Properties, then select Set Launch Options.

NOTE: Please be advised that these settings are recommended for advanced users and may adversely affect your game experience.

The parameters are:
  • -isomovement

    Using the default Slinger-style WASD controls, diagonal movements will more closely adhere to the isometric perspective. We would appreciate your feedback about this change via our Steam forum (linked below).

  • -windowed

    Forces the game to start in windowed mode.

  • -x [value]

    Forces the game to a specific X resolution.

  • -y [value]

    Forces the game to a specific Y resolution.

  • Example: to run the game in 1280x720 (720p) resolution: "-windowed -x 1280 -y 720"

  • -noborder

    Runs the game in windowed mode but with no windows title bar or border. (This may improve compatibility or performance versus full-screen mode in some cases or provide a preferable experience.)

  • -deadzone [value]

    Allows a custom joystick dead zone for players experiencing issues with their gamepads. Value is the fraction at which input should register. Example: "-deadzone 0.4".

  • -lang [value]

    Forces the game to load a specific text language. Available options are "en", "fr", "it", "de", and "es" for English, French, Italian, German, and Spanish, respectively. Example: "-lang de"

  • -nofixedstep

    Turns off fixed time step so that the game no longer dictates the frame rate. (This may improve performance for some users but may also lead to erratic performance in other cases.)
