Download HERO Combat Simulator 1.9.5plus

- - - - -

Java-based Hero Combat Simulator for Hero System 5e. Doesn't appear compatible with recent java versions.

jre 1.6.0 does work:

I just installed it and ran this from command prompt:

"C:\Program Files\Java\jre1.6.0\bin\java" -jar hcs.jar

Has anyone used this yet?

Well, I downloaded this thing and I can't get it to work right.  I am trying to put a character in it.  I got the stats in okay, but when I add powers, I can't set the dice or point level.  I can't name the powers or edit them in any way.  It's kind of frustrating.  Are there some instructions somewhere or does thing just not work?

Downloaded 1.9.5plus, but there was no .exe file. Help?

I haven't had much luck getting this to work. I've tried 32 and 64 bit versions of Java RE 1.6.0 and JRE 6u45. When I run it, it gives a java.io.EOFException message. The interface then loads, and I can load a roster or a battle; but I can't seem to progress the battle.


I'm trying to run it on a Windows 10 x64 laptop. I've also tried using various Compatibility Mode settings.
