Hey everyone!

Defender's Quest version 2.1.7 has just been released.

Windows: YES
Linux: NOT YET

This version includes a lot of bugfixes and stability changes, as well as complete translations for Simplified Chinese and Traditional Chinese. Previously, we had only translated the user interface and gameplay text; now all the story, cutscene, and journal text should be fully translated into both languages.

Since the translations are still new, there is always the possibility that I, the programmer, have introduced a few bugs during the integration, or have failed to provide the translator with enough context for certain scenes. If you are fluent in both Chinese and English and find any errors, please do not hesitate to point them out to me, and I will try to fix them as quickly as I can.

The majority of our other changes concern general stability, fixing random rare crashes, and improving gamepad support. We have also identified a few parts of the code that were rather slow, and optimized them. Hopefully that will mean some improved performance for those who had been experiencing slowdown on big, long, battles.
