Instructions to Update:

* In case the update message does not appear, hit Ctrl+F8 and type enter Upd_checkforupdates 1


 - Changing Windows Compatibility Mode.
* Select Windows 95 compatibility mode in order to update (de-select it after the updating process has finished):

== General ==

The updater for HoN has been completely reworked. The next time you patch, it will use this new updater process
HoN no longer requires Administrator privileges to run on startup
You will still have to give the updater process Administrator privileges when patching (Administrator privileges are necessary when patching or repairing a HoN installation 
to avoid any permission issues it may encounter)
The new updater also includes a repair tool designed to fix common errors that can arise from within a HoN installation. You can run the repair tool from the in-game options 
menu (Options -> Repair Install)
You can also update or repair with the "-update" or "-repair" command line options in-game (Windows only)
