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In the future yes, technically speaking, linux already has a 64-Bit client, but it is pretty outdated at this point and uses very old tech, it makes it a bit tricky to make a "super client" (??)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 😉

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.

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.

Gotta admit, was very sceptical at first, thinking what would 64bit HoN client would change as the engine is outdated as f**k, and thinking its a gimmick at most. I guess I was proven wrong.. So far stable 120+ FPS throughout all the stages of the match (This is really pleasant for someone who has 240hz monitor like me), so far so good, looking forward for future improvements of stability and multi-core support, to push that performance furthermore, keep up the good work!
