Will we Linux users get some love as well?

In the future yes, technically speaking, linux already has a 64-Bit client, but it is pretty outdated at this point and uses very old tech, it makes it a bit tricky to make a "super client" (??) when technically the architecture already exists, if we can find a way for it to make sense, we'll do it.

Updating Linux to new standards  is also very easy, which isn't hard to imagine 😉

And the mods? It runs as well?

Mods just change files which should be identically, so those should usually be working. However mod managers might search in the wrong directories.

I've been beta-testing this for a while.  Apparently, there's a bug* we all missed which is freaking typical but it shouldn't affect any matches.

It's way more than 64-bit.  The DirectX pipeline has been optimised as well.  It fixes an NVidia graphics pipeline problem so I get roughly double fps. Your boost will probably be less than that though.

This was created by largely unpaid devs... with Garena actually being a roadblock rather than supporting.  Major props to HyperXewl, Umbreon, ElementUser and others.

* when trying to change Settings.

Ok great, thanks, we have HoN 64-bit. But for the love of god, why can't I download the client by opening a hyperlink within the client. It's absurd in 2020 that I can't do this. Huge release, but I have to minimize the native client to check it out. Ridiculous.

 

Sorry for being so blunt. But that's crazy.

This update is incredible. I'm holding a solid 144 fps, and 4k doesn't freak out any longer. The matches even late into the game are stutter free, and I launch the game in half the time while the load times are basically not there. Great job team. Love the work you guys continue to do.

how do I get this on Garena client?

It has only been released for the NA/EU client atm. Oh and btw I've been planning to upgrade to the new ryzen 5000 series cpu so I guess there should be alot more boost in performance now that the game is optimized for new cpus.

Very nice, just tried it out some games, works flawless so far. Loading times are pretty much the same but in game its smoother and I am getting 150+ fps. Wow!
