- A remixed mode for all levels and bosses. The remixed mode is a lot easier to survive than its standard counterpart. The easy difficulty for Giana should roughly correspond to the normal difficulty for casual platformer games. And, of course, the standard and hardcore modes are still there. - The code has been optimized further to boost the performance of GSTD (DirectX10/11 mode only). The improved framerate should be the most noticeable on mid-range machines that required lower graphical settings to run smoothly in the previous version. - Added Japanese and Russian language support - Added in-game menu for basic audio and controller settings - Uber-hardcode achievement fix, finally those of you who managed to beat the game will get the achievement you deserve (all you need is to beat one level in uber hardcore and you should be awarded with the achievement if you have already played through every level in that mode).
- Fixed an issue that caused a black screen after starting a level in DX9 mode with some AMD/ATI setups - Fixed a crash that could occur when playing fullscreen in DX9 mode - Fixed a resolution issue occurring with the Steam overlay (fuzzy graphics) - Fixed a bug that clipped the mouse, keeping you from clicking on part of the interface - Twisting the world now causes the background to wobble properly again - Greatly reduced the amount of flickering for shadows in DX10/11 mode - Fixed inconsistent particle effects - Soft shadows can now be properly selected in the menu again - Fixed a crash that could occur when launching level 3-5 - V-sync can now be set properly above 60 Hz - Fixed a launcher crash that could occur when starting the game - Fixed a crash with the error message MSVCP100.dll is missing
