From Heroes of Newerth Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

Version 1.0.3.1[edit | edit source]

  • Fixed the changelog ingame to be the correct version.

Version 1.0.3[edit | edit source]

Darkwood Vale[edit | edit source]

  • Removed two neutral spawns, replaced them with outposts.
  • Replaced two of the higher tier neutral camps with tier 1 neutrals.
  • Outermost towers are now level 1 towers (instead of level 2).
    • This means they will do slightly less damage and less starting health, same as the outer most towers on Caldavar.
  • Lowered building health on this map by 25%, lowered ranged rax health regeneration rate by 25% (these changes only affect the darkwood vale map).
  • Moved some trees to allow better ward spots to cover runes.

In-Game[edit | edit source]

  • Players will no longer see trees die in fog
  • Added an interface option for "Double Activate." When enabled, certain items and abilities may be double-clicked (or double-activated) for automatic use:
  • Added new game interface option "Move To Spawn On Disconnect".
    • When enabled, the server will automatically issue a move command to your hero to move back to base whenever you crash, freeze, or lose your internet connection.
  • Added new keybind: "Cancel And Hold Position".
    • Functions exactly like "Hold Position", except it also cancels animations.
    • Players who want this functionality can replace their current Hold keybinding with the new Cancel and Hold keybinding.
  • A unit in the air no longer gains the 25% "uphill miss chance" evasion.
  • Health and Mana bars for heroes will now show the damage they take.
    • This new 'shadowed' bar can be turned off in the options menu.
  • If the player drag-selects, and the current active control entity is not a hero, and the selection contains a hero, then the active control entity will become the first hero in the selection.
    • This allows players to drag-select Ophelia.jpg Ophelia + her creeps and ALWAYS have Ophelia.jpg Ophelia as active, regardless of the last active unit.
  • Scorescreen now contains voting options (kick, pause, concede, remake) and add friend functionality.
  • The camera will no longer shake when an effect (such as Homecoming Stone.jpg Homecoming Stone) is played in fog.
  • Fix to properly calculate a player's exp/min, even if he reached max level.
  • Neutral creep agro range for all creeps set to 300 (some were 250, some were 300).
  • Vulture Lord.jpg Vulture Lord now has a +3 AOE armor aura.
  • Fix to Kongor.jpg Kongor so he won't wonk out and no one can hit him anymore.
  • Added a visual effect for Main health bars, they now course with energy.
  • Modified the internal random number generator to use a much higher quality distribution of random number.
  • Dual target abilities now properly ignore trees if their target scheme ignores them.
  • Hero health/mana bars are now shadowed with 500ms delay on the shadows.
  • Gold lerps to its actual value over 350m.
  • Toggles are correctly propagated to illusions.


Pre-Game[edit | edit source]

  • Added "Potential Hero Selection" functionality.
    • At the hero selection screen, you can right-click on any hero to make it your "Potential Hero".
    • Spectators and anyone on your team can see your potential hero (the enemy team can't).
    • If you run out of time, you will select that hero rather than randoming.
  • Prevent the "5... 4... 3... 2... 1... Let's get it on" countdown from happening after the hero selection screen.
  • Loading bar now courses with energy.
  • The game lobby will no longer display the message "PlayerName has connected." once for their initial connection, and again when they have finished loading.
    • It will now say "PlayerName is connecting." and "PlayerName has connected." to distinguish the different events.
  • Set the max channel chat message (250), max game chat message (150), chat channel topic (140), and channel name length (30).
  • Channel messages will only play sounds when receiving a message in the current channel that has focus.
    • This fixes all the sounds that used to play when a user was in multiple channels at the same time.
  • The channel name + topic area of the channel is now truncated off properly and no longer wraps off the panel onto the rest of the UI for long channel topics.
  • Added a hovertip to the channel name + topic so if the topic is 95+ chars, if you hover over it it displays the full topic, similar to how long game names work in the Public Game interface.
  • The game lobby will now play the epic lobby.mp3 music.
  • Moved the voip mute button/icon things to the small colored circle to the side of the player slot (which normally is only used for the right-click menu) in all game phases.
    • The normal right-click menu (which is only available pre-hero-picker) now occupies the same spot used to show the player's avatar/left-click to join button).


General[edit | edit source]

  • Fixed a bunch of random crashes caused from clicking the "Disconnect" button.
    • Before, clicking the button had a small random chance to corrupt a random place in memory that caused you to crash at a random time doing something random.
  • Updated the wording of some of the tooltips to be a bit more clear.
  • When viewing a player's stats, "Public Statistics" is now selected by default (previously "Ranked Statistics").
  • Prevent a buddylist bug when the user loses connection to the chat server, then reconnects to the chat server.
  • Russian stringtables updated.
  • Fixed lock camera on player not turning off after a replay.
  • Profanity filter is now optional.
  • Follow fix: If two players are following each other and one of them joins a game, the other one will now join that game instead of both of them disconnecting.
  • Fixed a spelling error in the matchmaking interface.
  • Fixed crash when CLIPBOARD selection is unowned and an attempt is made to paste.
  • Fixed an issue that disconnected a user if they typed a player's name into the IM window.
  • Fix to the close button of the MOTD so you can click it easier.
  • Fixed mousewheel events not having the correct coordinates in windowed mode.
  • Re-organized the options menu slightly.
  • The game list is no longer cleared when closed.
    • The list will only auto-refresh when it is opened for the first time or a game starts.
