Hero-U: Rogue to Redemption Update #103

The first patch for Transolar Games’ recently released adventure-RPG Hero-U: Rogue to Redemption is on its way, according to the latest Kickstarter update. Going by the internal changelog, the patch will fix a great number of bugs while also tweaking and rebalancing certain encounters. Here are some additional details:

We’ve pushed a beta test version of “Patch 1” to Steam. If your game key includes Beta Test access, and you want to help us verify that it’s ok to release this build, right-click Hero-U: Rogue to Redemption in the Steam app, choose Properties, then the BETAS tab. Select “beta – Build Candidate” click “CHECK CODE” – there is no password.

Please report any problems you find to the Hero-U bug forum – http://www.hero-u.net/forum/viewforum.php?f=41&sid=96f2bf7a48f4dcabdb9ddc96a420fe5f. Caution: Some posts there contain spoilers. For now, please prioritize serious problems; we need to get a patch out that fixes those, and we will continue to improve the game for future patches.

We will push beta test builds of future patches from time to time, so be sure to go back to “NONE – Opt out of all beta programs” if you want to have a guaranteed stable build. Saved games from any build are compatible with the other builds.

Known issues with this build – You might find the music too quiet in the introductory video. All of the video cut scenes continue to have some compression quality issues. We’re working on upgrading to a later version of Unity that will allow us to fix these, but that’s too big a change for the first patch.

For completionists and people who just want to check if their favorite bug or exploit has been fixed, I’m sharing our internal change log here – https://drive.google.com/open?id=1dWTI7tEYdUSW2Vk4OCSB02SjdiwWjQmNhuxzhEPa0FU. I’ve lightly edited this to remove some spoilers, duplicate entries, and boring internal changes; but it likely still contains some of each of those.

Incidentally, I still occasionally receive messages from backers looking for their game key. We’re doing all digital fulfillment through BackerKit. The page for game keys and other digital content is https://hero-u-adventure-role-playing-game.backerkit.com/backer/digital_rewards. Your key might have a strange name such as “beta-only” – if it says Steam or GOG, it’s your key for both beta and release versions of Hero-U: Rogue to Redemption.
