Heroes of Newerth Latest Patch Notes - Version 0.3.6


Game Modes

  • Added Dev Hero Mode
    • When enabled, Dev Hero Mode allows work-in-progress "development" heroes to be played
    • All future S2 Hero additions are going to be added as "dev heroes," this allows us to get feedback on a large scale and evaluate balance before including the hero in the stable hero pool
    • Dev hero mode must be enabled when hosting games. It can be filtered in the game list. Dev heroes will not be used in matchmaking or competitive tournaments
  • Added new advanced game option "Tournament Rules"

  • You can now drop an item into an inventory spot with a building under it

Matchmaking 2.0

  • Matchmaking has received some serious revisions that should drastically improve match making quality. Please help us further perfect our match making system by giving it a try and leaving feedback on the forums
    • Reworked how matches are formed to more consistently replace players who fail to load and to decrease time to find matches for players with exceptionally high or low SMR ratings
    • Players new to matchmaking must complete 5 provisional matches, in which they will be matched with other new players. If not enough new players are available, they will eventually be matched with regular players.
    • Players now have the option to set their initial standing according to general skill level, which affects the types of players they will be matched against. The three options are Beginner, Intermediate, and Advanced.
    • Solo matchmaking uses Banning Draft (BD)

Ingame Changes

  • Added a new keybinding: Direct Pathing
    • When held down and an order is given (Move, Attack, Cast, etc) will move the hero in a direct path towards where you click no matter what is in the way. Ignores cliffs, heroes, and creeps. Useful for chasing through the woods or pushing yourself against a cliff to cast into the river!
  • Re-arranged some of the shop to put modifiers into the correct (bottom) shop. This includes all lifesteal items. Brutalizer and Lightning items are now in the Combat shop. Be wary of your hotkeys!
  • If you buy an item on a courier then transfer that item to your hero, you can now sell that item for its full value within the 15 second sellback period

  • Fixed disconnect messages appearing twice when a player disconnects in game
  • Calling a vote to remake, pause or kick (through the console) before the pre-match game phase will no longer work. (ie. only after the players are loaded into the map can they call these.)
  • If displaying chat timestamps were enabled in game, various game messages sent to both teams were not being timestamped (disconnects, Kongor kills, Barracks destruction, etc). These messages now display the timestamp properly if the client has this option enabled.

  • Fixed some tooltips for items in the shop
  • Fixed spectators at 1920x1080 resolution

Pre-Game Changes

  • Hero icons no-longer react to mouseovers/clicks when there's no hero
  • The loading race values now start at 1 and end at 10, the old race values should no longer appear when loading the next game
  • Pressing ALT in the game lobby will now toggle the chat mode between "Team" and "All" chat modes.
  • Moved the Ping/Players/Version labels in the game lobby a bit to the right as we weren't making use of the space and server names with long names like those we use for South Africa overlapped into these labels

General Changes

  • Replays now begin recording during the picking phase
  • Removed the "Tier" filters, columns and inputs from the game browser and create game interface
  • Added filters, sortable columns and all inputs for Min/Max PSR to the game browser and create game interface
    • Players may now specify a Min/Max PSR range when creating a game. Min/Max PSR games will appear normally as they would in the game browser and other players may join a game if their PSR falls within 2% of the range the game server Min/Max PSR is set to. (This means a player with 1471 PSR should be able to make it into a game marked Min 1500, and a 1734 player would be able to join a game marked as Max 1700, but those are the very edge of the 2% tolerance, so anything higher or lower would be rejected.)
  • Games outside of a player's PSR range are grayed out in the game browser similar to the way "No Leaver" games appear to a player with leaver status. If no range is specified when the game is created then no range is enforced. If a player is invited to a game, the server ignores the PSR restrictions for them allowing friends to play in games they may not normally be able to be playing
  • Added Min/Max PSR to the /gi or /gameinfo commands
  • The players PSR is now retrieved and stored locally on the client when logging in, and is accessible through the UI_CMD() GetPSR()
  • Removed the ticks, grinds, blips and whatnot that were playing when the game started up
  • Added an option "Disable Background Effects" that allows users to toggle whether or not all the background lobby effects and animations are played. (Credit to Pancakeslp for the original mod)
  • Fixed some buddy request/add notifications playing sounds a bunch of times when logging in if a player had those notifications saved in their history
  • The Notification Duration slider under options->interface now sets the duration (1-15 seconds) a notification is displayed for
  • Fixed a number of incorrectly labeled tooltips on the options menu. Disabled the "Health/Mana Bar Scale" in the options
  • Removed the "Options" menu from the F10 in game menu
  • Fixed "Add PlayerName" buttons on options menu to align properly and correctly add the player clicked on
  • Increased max size of joinable channels to 30
  • Using the slash command /join "password" will now attempt to join the channel with the password specified. (Anything in between the quotes at the end becomes the password)
  • Fixed some issues in the client/interface causing the change password dialogue to not work
  • Fixed the lock/unlocked tooltip for hosts to display the correct tip (was previously showing the opposite tooltip it should have been showing)
  • Players can now select Logon/Logoff and Join/Leave Game notification settings for clan members separately from the notifications they select for their friends
  • Fixed an issue where notifications were not being saved to the history properly
  • Fixed the default notification time to be 10 seconds instead of 10000
  • Updated sub-account description
  • Removed "Show Menu Transitions" from the options menu as the option is not currently being used
  • Fixed iris closing sound being heard on disconnect
  • Fixed "/r" to not reply to a clan whisper automatically with "/c m", instead it will reply directly to the sender with a "/w PlayerName" just like how "/b m" works
  • Trying out new color for the selected item in listboxes
  • Fixed the "Show Winner" button on the match stats screen to correctly display and announce the team who won
  • Fixed sound driver list sometimes showing the current driver incorrectly
    • This means the sound system will only restart if it is indeed necessary
  • Fixed a couple places where linux system class was using incorrect character conversions
  • Added console command "precacheworld ". So for example type "precacheworld caldavar" to precache its resources
  • Removed cvar browser_maxPing as it was not being used
  • Invisible Mode will now remember its state the next time the game re-loads
  • Players in "Invisible Mode" will no longer auto join default HoN or Clan channels when leaving a game, allowing them to properly remain in a hidden state
  • Clicking on the clock in the system bar now toggles between 12 hour and 24 hour display
  • Re-arranged Public and Create Game interfaces to make more space and added icons/checkboxes for the new "Hardcore" and "Dev Heroes" game options
  • Moved "Alt Hero Picking" on the Create Game interface to an Advanced Option, which is what it is actually categorized as

They should no longer need to wait any longer than 60 seconds to re-request their a friend
  • Fixed an issue where certain players would always be flagged with a PSR of "N/A", resulting in 100% win chance for their team

  • Fixed a small animation on the effect indicators
  • Fixed a bug which caused music to not loop
  • Removed that non working update button

UI modding enhancements (credit to Notausgang/Tisser):

  • Added new UI function IsEnabled. (Credit to Tisser)
  • Added a new UI function EscapeString(str). It scans the input string for any \ or ' characters and adds a backslash before them
  • Don't do this twice to the same string! That will likely cause the result to be invalid
  • Added new UI_CMD() AddTemplateListItemWithSortReversed() that takes the same parameters as AddTemplateListItemWithSort() but adds the newest elements to the top of the list instead of the end (so the newest item appears at the top of the widget.)
