I only back up English installers since I never play games in my native language. The way I see it, you lose a lot in the translation, especially humour and cultural references. Even if that's not the case, I rather experience it in the language it was originally written. Of course, there are games that were originally written in languages different than English (Spanish, French, German, Russian and Japanese are the most common I guess), but even then I find English translations better than those to my language, so...

Anyway, I took my English studies quite far but now I very rarely need to use it in my day to day life, so sticking with games/books/movies in English is my way to keep current and practice it.
Windward has been updated:

Patch 2015.08.31 (02.09.2015)
- Added extra code to prevent pirated versions from ruining players’ experience. The game has no DRM, so “cracking” an old version to mimic a newer version when connecting to the server is stupid, to say the least. Version checks are there for a reason. If you’re so hellbent on playing online with a pirated version, then just pirate the latest one, not some shady outdated version. Like I said: No DRM!
- Added support for “flair” on ships. Currently in testing. Flair is basically extra decorations visible at mid to higher graphics settings. Only one ship has been set up with flair right now as it’s a prototype test feature for the time being. Bosses sailing this certain ship type will have flair visible. For players it’s an unlockable feature.

JudasIscariot: Really? We figured people would appreciate the separate language versions since that means they wouldn't have to download data they don't need :)
Nowadays lots of people speak more than one language fluently. Even if you don't download all language versions you might want to archive at least all language versions that you can understand. And even if you only speak two languages that means you have to download all games assets (graphics, code, etc.) twice even though only the text (and sometimes speech) is different.

In the case of Heretic Kingdoms downloading one installer with 0.9 GB for all languages is definitley preferable to downloading two installers with 0.7 GB (sums up to 1.4 GB) for only two languages.
Something updated in Baldur's Gate Enhanced Edition but for some reason I can't get a changelog?

Edit: it's up now, apparently a new Linux installer

Like most or all Germans here, I'm speaking German and English too and play games in both languages.
Since I'm planning on refreshing my French, I need to download three giant files for some games only for the stuff that I will need and then there's the fact, that I want to have the original version (which sometimes is a fourth language) and this "I bought it, so I'll take it" which makes me take the other languages as well, so in the case of Heretic Kingdoms I now have 0.9Gb instead of 5.6GB on my backup-drives.

In bigger games like Baldur's Gate, the saved bandwidth and space is huge, that's why I want to thank you guys for the new multi-language Linux installer. At least that's what the download page says it is, because it's the same file at every language selection now.

The older/indie games not having separate language installers are one thing, however when you look at today's AAA titles with full voiceovers and 20 languages, you'd end up having to download 50GB installer instead of 20GB because of it. Which is horrible waste of space for anyone that uses just 1 of them - likely still the majority of gamers.

Please don't make a habit of doing it in such cases.

Similar changes to the linux installers were made for Baldur's Gate 2 Enhanced Edition and Icewind Dale Enhanced Edition.

Patch gog-4 Linux (02.09.2015)
We've uploaded a new Linux installer [...] for ID EE / BG2 EE.
Added missing dependency.
Fixed an issue where the game would crash on AMD (proprietary drivers).
Fixed an issue where the game would not support dual screens properly on NVIDIA (proprietary drivers).

JudasIscariot: By the way, why are you backing up data that you may not need?
For example, I may decide to become Portuguese (and move to a Mac) long after GOG is a distant memory...

Actually, if I buy it, I download it, and the copies GOG stores for me are my BACKUPS.

I'll find extra space for my own backups for every online store that goes under. (Ideally, anyway - I haven't quite managed to practice what I preach yet, but the Desura wake-up call got me started on it. Some small download sources I don't even bother trusting their backups from day one.)

Language packs save space. You could even things out by not including English in the base package, but, erm, let's just call it "C" locale support...

We do appreciate that. The Internet also thanks you. :)
