Postby Kalah » May 4 2013, 10:35

<img src="http://www.celestialheavens.com/images/news/newshorn.jpg" align=left vspace=5 hspace=5>There is finally some news from the Ubi folks about the problems people have been <a href="http://forums.ubi.com/showthread.php/295256-BUGLIST-Please-report-bugs-here/page283">experiencing</a>. Also, <a href="http://might-and-magic.ubi.com/heroes-6/en-GB/news/details.aspx?c=tcm%3A21-95856&ct=tcm%3A6-231-32">the official page</a> lists up a set of installation instructions depending on which version you have:

<i>"Maintenance is now over and missing content issues have been solved.
Yesterday, the Heroes VI standalone Shades of Darkness was officially released.
We have decided to take advantage of this opportunity to fix several existing bugs in all Heroes VI versions..
However some user experience difficulties have appeared with the auto patching system. In order to fix this issue, we strongly recommend you to get the 2.1 version and follow <a href="http://might-and-magic.ubi.com/heroes-6/en-GB/news/details.aspx?c=tcm%3A21-95856&ct=tcm%3A6-231-32">this tutorial</a>.
The music and voice bugs have now been fixed with the Steam version. You may have to restart Steam to get the update.

Regarding issues related to missing content:
- Game not displayed on the Uplay platform (“My Games”).
- Unable to play multiplayer maps & locked campaigns, maps, bonuses etc (servers maintenance will take place in the afternoon in order to fix these issues).

We are currently working to solve these problems and will update you throughout the day with further information. "</i>

I assume Steam will take care of these problems automatically?

For Steam downloads of the game, yes - at least as far as the bugs caused by Steam/server errors are concerned, such as locked contents.

Oh, now just look at those Metacritic user reviews. This is going well...

We should take into account that this launch has been disastrous and that users are giving their reviews very early. Once the major flaws are cleared up, users will start to give scores on how good the actual game is. But so far this doesn't look good, no.

Hey, did someone ninja-edit that Metacritic hotlink in my previous comment?

That was me - sorry, I meant to mention it. It was to make it readible in both the forum and on the main page. :)

I'm guessing I should not be applying this update to my collectors edition of Heroes6? Their guide unless I'm reading it wrong appears to be telling people to re-install the game and update it back to 1.8 and then only get the new patch again if they've got the addonpack?

The guide is confusing at least.
If you have H6, you just need to:
- patch it to version 1.8
- download patch 2.1 and install it
- launch the game and in unlock tab write 50 Shades of Purple code to unlock it.
No need to install SoD at all, just use it code in-game.

If you don't have H6 installed, you just install SoD and patch it to version 2.1.


That's all unless Ubisoft screwed something more and you really need to uninstall game.

This game is nothing but a headache. Why do WE have to update this game. They might as well hand over their programming software, while they're at it.
Hats off to all contributors, in all shapes and sizes. Keep up the good work.
