Cannot Upgrade Linux Client

The updater (executed as the same user which launches the game) needs to have write access to the install location as well as reside on a partition which has execution permissions.

You can force this via the chmod command. Assuming you have installed Heroes Of Newerth into your home directory (~/HoN) then the command

chown $(whoami):$(whoami) ~/HoN

will force-change ownership to who you are.


If a particular file is unable to be updated a manual fetch of the required file (view console.log for file that is causing issues).

Where VERSION is the version found in the manifest.xml and FILE is the file in question
