Spanish (Latin America)[edit]

  3. Open appmanifest_256290.acf.
  4. Change the language to latamspanish:
  5. 	"UserConfig"
    	{
    		"language"		"latamspanish"
    	}
    
  6. Save and close the file.
  7. Start Steam and launch the game. It will now run in the Latin American Spanish localization.

Issues fixed[edit]

"Your CPU is Outdated" error[edit]

The game checks for some SSE4 instructions and if it fails, it shows an error message and refuses to run. The game doesn't use those instructions beyond that test, so bypassing is quite safe.
Bypass CPU check[citation needed]

Notes

  1. 1.0 1.1 File/folder structure within this directory reflects the path(s) listed for Windows and/or Steam game data (use Wine regedit to access Windows registry paths). Games with Steam Cloud support may store data in ~/.steam/steam/userdata/<user-id>/256290/ in addition to or instead of this directory. The app ID (256290) may differ in some cases. Treat backslashes as forward slashes. See the glossary page for details.
