Tournament beta released, new open beta available

Hi everyone!

First, many thanks to Brett and everyone that joined us at Anime Expo! The tournament was very exciting and everyone had a lot of fun!

Also thanks to everyone who participated in the June 25th tournament, that version performed well enough to be the new default for all players, so it has been pushed live already. However, some networking issues remained. We've been hard at work on them and are happy to put out a new beta for you all that should now have all netcode issues resolved.

Please try it out with your friends and let us know how it performs.

This version is an opt-in beta: to enable it follow the following directions:

  • In Steam Library, right click on Koihime Enbu in your game list
  • Open the "Properties" menu and navigate to the "Betas" tab
  • From the dropdown choose the "open_beta" beta
  • Closing the properties menu, Steam should update your game
  • After update it will show up as "Koihime Enbu [open_beta]"

Hopefully there should be no problems, but please report any issue you find in the open_beta report thread on Steam.

Thank you!
