Having some troubles with Epic Games on the Heroic Games Launcher? You weren't alone and a new hotfix is out to get it sorted.
For Epic Games, the issue was the captcha not being able to be completed, so 2.7.1 Hotfix #1 should solve that properly now. Some people noticed they were getting a blank screen on loading too, that should also be solved. Plus a problem with the Add Game blocking the Finish button was also fixed.
They've also added some keyboard shortcuts now too:
- Command Or Control+R: Reloads the app.
- Command Or Control+Q: Quits the app.
- Command Or Control+Shift+I: Opens the dev tools.
- Command Or Control+K: Opens the Heroic settings screen on the frontend.
- Command Or Control+L: Opens the library screen.
- Command Or Control+J: Opens the downloads screen.

Great to see such an essential app keep getting better. Really is the simplest way to install games from Epic Games and GOG on Linux and Steam Deck.
