So is this patcher just for the test server yeah?

I downloaded the file and it patched, but it never asked me where it was downloading the files too. Previously I had the HEXTest client in a specific place on my D drive, but this didn't give me an option. Or maybe I'm stupid?

Anyone else having a lot of trouble with the launcher? I downloaded the brand new one (uninstalled the old one long ago). It patches and reboots like 3 times, then it gets hung up on HexPatch.exe.old (Checking Existing Files). I deleted all the .old files and it patched, then it got hung up on downloading an Assembly DLL. Deleted the whole thing and started over and got the exact same thing.

After deleting the .old files it updates a bunch, looks like it finishes... then both bars go blank and it says "Updating Files... Assembly-CSharp-firstpass.dll" and gets stuck there. That file doesn't exist anywhere. Rebooting the launcher doesn't fix it.

But yeah anyway, I wonder if the introduction of authenticator support will come with some new features on the website for managing the authenticators on your account. Ooh I hope however they set it up they include a feature that gives a QR code for the key to scan with your mobile app to set it up, that'd be nifty, I just did that recently when setting it up with Last Pass it was nice.

It's not in a file, it's actually in the Windows Registry. If you're familiar with that much then you can probably find it on your own, but only mess with that if you know what you're doing.

Question- how exactly does the test server tournament work again? I missed the last one and I'm afraid I might miss this one since I'm moving back to my apartment this Saturday. I don't intend to play a ton, but the ability to play in at least one would be nice- heck, maybe I'm misconstruing even that; the way people were talking about the last one you could play more and more rounds all you wanted, but the rules indicate it's just one big tournament. Either way, I'm not sure if I need to be there at exactly 11 Pacific to participate, or if I can show up later and join some random tournament, so sorry if I sound like an idiot, but... someone please clarify? ^^;

Question- how exactly does the test server tournament work again? I missed the last one and I'm afraid I might miss this one since I'm moving back to my apartment this Saturday. I don't intend to play a ton, but the ability to play in at least one would be nice- heck, maybe I'm misconstruing even that; the way people were talking about the last one you could play more and more rounds all you wanted, but the rules indicate it's just one big tournament. Either way, I'm not sure if I need to be there at exactly 11 Pacific to participate, or if I can show up later and join some random tournament, so sorry if I sound like an idiot, but... someone please clarify? ^^;

For the one that rewards actual prizes you'll need to be there before 11am.

Oh wow. This update is huge. Hopefully Gauntlet will increase the number of people playing constructed.

If the tournament works that will be a great step forward too.

I don't know how I am going to have time for anything other than Hex again lol

I guess spoiler season is over now we have all the card data. At least we can piece together those flavour text stories...


"The first living being was Xum The Weaver, who grew for 8 million years inside a cosmic egg. When Xum hatched, she began weaving together the universe." -Arachnomicon 1
"From her spinnerets, Xum wove the stars in the sky and the stone of the ground. She wove a giant ball of silk and set it on fire, creating the sun." -Arachnomicon 2
"When Xum was finished weaving reality, she pierced herself with her own leg. The blood from The Weaver's wound flooded the world and kept it submerged for 8000 years." -Arachnomicon 3
"Eventually, the tides of The Weaver's blood ebbed. What remains of the flood still exists today as the lake of blood near the vennen city of Nahzk." -Arachnomicon 4
"The massive spear that sticks out of the lake of blood is actually Xum's leg, the one she used to stab herself." -Arachnomicon 5
"The first two sentient creatures to emerge from the lake of blood were Xythnin and Xentoth. The male and female spider gods were imbued with The Weaver's blood." -Arachnomicon 6
"Together, Xythnin and Xentoth created Blood Magic, the purest expression of magic that has ever existed." -Arachnomicon 7
"They had eight hundred children who skittered out from beneath the ground, and migrated throughout Entrath." -Arachnomicon 8
"The children of Xythnin and Xentoth became the Spider Kings, who would rule the various regions of Entrath with dictatorial cruelty." -Arachnomicon 9
"The spider god Xythnin would travel the realms of the Spider Kings, advising his children in matters of politics and war. Xentoth became increasingly irritated by her husband's inattention." -Arachnomicon 10
"He said, 'I, Xythnin, am the true god. You, wife, have already given birth to the Spider Kings that now rule all of Entrath. Your purpose has been served. Now be silent.'" -Arachnomicon 11
"Enraged, Xentoth slew her husband on the spot. The female spider god then traveled the realms of the Spider Kings and assassinated them all." -Arachnomicon 12
"Xentoth now saw all of her spawn as the bastards of Xythnin the traitor, thus all deserved death." -Arachnomicon 13
"After murdering all of her children, Xentoth retreated to her subterranean lair, vowing to spend eternity alone." -Arachnomicon 14
"With all of their monarchs slain, Entrath descended into eight centuries of chaos." -Arachnomicon 15
"Vermin crawled upon the mud of the broken lands. They ate the souls of their children and lived amidst filth. These creatures came to be known as 'orcs'." -Arachnomicon 16
"Two hundred thousand years ago, an orc raiding party exploring the caverns of the world below the surface discovered the enormous lake of blood." -Arachnomicon 17
"Outraged at the presence of surface-world intruders in her lair, Xentoth captured and consumed the entire orc contingent." -Arachnomicon 18
"Soon after, Xentoth began to lay hundreds of eggs, and from these sacs emerged the first vennen, beings of pure Blood Magic." -Arachnomicon 19
"Her new children were not kings, but they were entirely hers, which pleased the spider god." -Arachnomicon 20
"Eventually, when her hunger reaches its apex, Xentoth will eat the world. She will then transform into a giant cosmic egg and begin the 8 million year wait to hatch again." -Arachnomicon 21

Well, you need to get into the queue before it starts at 11am. And, given that demand on the server will be high (and they'll likely be constraining server resources intentionally) both logging in and joining the tournament are likely to be slow. I'd be in the queue by 10.30am at the latest to be safe.

Whatever I did seemed to work first time... I downloaded the patcher, unzipped, and ran it. Then I realised halfway through that would patch it to the downloads folder I downloaded it to, so I cancelled that and copied the unzipped files over to my old Test Server folder and ran the patcher from there. Then I realised I hadn't quite copied all the files, so I cancelled and just unzipped the original download to the Test Server folder and ran the patcher again. And when it was done, it seemed (and seems) to work.

Ozawa walked the stars. When he returned, he told the people about the Signs of the Prophecies.

"This is the First Sign: We know of the coming of the diamond-eyed, who took the land beneath the land and walk with borrowed flesh."
"This is the Second Sign: Our lands will see the coming of the rock men and their metal beasts with blood of black. They shall seek the end of all things."
"This is the Third Sign: A strange beast like a buffalo but with great long horns and eyes like glowing coals will overrun the land in large numbers."
"This is the Fourth Sign: Thin, hairless creatures of pure chaos will shatter an ancient soul that was long ago transformed."
"This is the Fifth Sign: The daughter of Blood Magic will emerge from the mouth of the mountain and speak to those who will not listen."
"This is the Sixth sign: The land shall be criss-crossed with rivers of stone that make pictures in the sun."
"This is the Seventh Sign: The grasses will absorb the cries of the dying. They will turn brown and scorn the sun."
"This is the Eighth Sign: The folk with skin of bark who hold their souls in acorns shall abandon their pacifism and seek the counsel of the elves."
"This is the Ninth Sign: The sovereign of the cottontails shall once again demand the enslavement of The People."
"This is the Tenth Sign: A child from the east will emerge in light. The people of the sand will beg him for salvation."
"This is the Eleventh Sign: The wounds of a bruised world shall once again bleed fire."
"This is the Twelfth Sign: A hero shall fall, then rise again as a king who is not a king."
"This is the Thirteenth Sign: The battle between the infernal and the insane shall tear a hole into this world."

You can find the text in the Localization folder.

Wow that was a little more difficult to set up then it should have been. Kept running into "Unable to find folder" issues. I finally had to put it on my desktop in its own folder and then create a shortcut onto the desktop.

On that note, why is it not automatically creating a desk top icon when running the setup??? This seems real basic "Programming for the masses 101".

The more difficult something is too setup, the easier it is too lose new players.

Still no luck. I'm stuck back at the original issue with the .old files and the Assembly DLL getting stuck. I've tried multiple folders in different locations (downloads folder, program files, and just straight C:/HexTest/ and C:/HexTestServer/). I've re-downloaded the zip file about 6 times. I installed on my other computer and copied the files over and tried running that way. Nothing works. Sometimes I can't even get past the patcher, sometimes I can make it to the ToS. It seems random what it's doing. I've never made it to the login screen on my desktop though. Worked fine first try on my Surface Pro.

For those of you still having issues with the EULA boss you can try this too.

1- Ensure all of the old files from your old test client are gone if you ever installed it. Its often a custom folder somewhere so make sure to search for it.

2- Find your folder located here and delete it. C:\Users\*YOURUSERNAME*\AppData\LocalLow\Cryptozoi c

3- Redownlod the patcher to be safe and stick it somewhere far away from your old install directory on another drive if possible.

4- Run the patcher and pray it works.

5- If you get the .old file error search the file directory for *.old and delete all the files that show up and rerun the installer.

The only step i left out of this is the fact that i hunted down all my registry keys for hex and deleted those as well. Thats a bit too in depth to expect an average user to do though.

Weird, am I not supposed to have any stuff? Upon login it asked me to create an account name, and it's brand new with only starter deck.

You should have a lot of gold and platinum to buy stuff.

It would be a lot less annoying if I had all the cards instead of having to buy them.

This is always a debate internally and is something we can change during the life of the Test Server. My belief is that, at least in the beginning, the best way to test is to have everyone experience the game as close to the live experience as possible. Doing that we get full end to end testing and might find problems that we overlook.

Nooo, I was remoting into my home PC just to open a few chests and see what they have. :(

You guys should read the patch notes in the test server forums, we've known since early yesterday we wouldn't be getting chests for the test. :)

All chests. I am not a happy bunny about it having span over 1K+ commons.

Wow, yeah that's kinda sad, I haven't spun that many but I definitely have a lot of them spun already.

I fixed it, not sure how. Try executing hex.exe instead of the patcher, if that doesn't work, rename or move the live hex folder and try again. I also deleted manually the old hex test folder, which was still present even after uninstalling it from the control panel.

Well I got hex test server last night and it opened fine then I put it out on desktop that wouldn't work now and didn't know how to put it back in so I delated the zipped folder and got it again and it worked fine then the delay patch and now patcher won't even load up server. Clicking play just moot point doesn't do anything.

I assume I'm not the only one who fires up the new patcher and has it sit and do nothing. I've deleted it and redownloaded twice, each time into a different folder. Any suggestions or solutions?

Not much of a consolation, but at least it's a small group of us that's having these problems and not just one or two people? :P

Hopefully there's a complete solution posted somewhere so we can all get in, but at least it's not an issue with the actual Hex client (for now).

Can you try a different computer?

Are you ensuring you're running it with admin privileges?

What OS are you using?

1) I can try it on my Surface.

2) Yes, on both the second and third downloads I have tried both normally and selecting run as admin.

3) Windows 7, SP1

Did you have the previous test server downloaded on your machine?

I thought I had uninstalled it, but now that you ask I am not sure.

It is working on my Surface.

EDIT: I had something in installed programs called 'Hex Test'; plus two other called just 'Hex'. I uninstalled Hex Test, but was not sure which (if either) of the other two I should remove. WIll try it again now.

If your opponent needs to discard a card it hangs and you have to forfeit. So it's really hard to test because you usually get stuck on Eternal Guardian.

I only got past Eternal Guardian once because of this, when I did the AI felt worse. For instance, the 10 charge wipe your board robot champ had 18 charges against me and I had 4 troops on the board and they never used their ability. Also seeing a lot more bad trades.

My guess is that the AI is being updated to account for new cards, and may not be in a complete state. There does seem to be a difference between Arena and PG AI at times, maybe because of all the moving parts in arena.

Following the Reddit thread I was able to log into the test server. Yay Reddit.

Uninstalled every Hex on my system, reinstalled the regular version.

Still getting the same thing on the test version.

Do I really have to start moving files around on my computer to get this to install?

Xavon

Okay, deleted all the new files and this time it installed. But now I'm getting the infinite TOS loop... Off to research that...

Currently I just can't get past the ToS.

I am stuck on patching. I patch most of the files and then it gets stuck and just stops patching. I really wish they would resolve the two known issues of the patcher and the TOS loop.

Ok,

Anybody having patching issues with the test server can try this. Unzip and run the files on a different drive destination. It can be a USB or a partitioned drive. Then just run from that source. It solved all the problems I had. This also bypasses the need to erase anything as the computer would read from the drive the test hex is saved on

Done multiple times on multiple drives and multiple partitions. Even created a new partition specifically for this, it just made it worse. There's already another thread on it.

The issue with these "Known issues" is that they are not happening to everyone, and not happening in the same way. It is entirely possible (if not likely) that the engineers have been unable to replicate them, thus making it very difficult to find out what is causing it.

for me the test client patches fine, just when I boot it all I get is a black screen... my normal game works fine though... and I've removed every trace of the older test client ages ago.
