You've probably noticed that the site has undergone something of a change...
We're pleased to introduce you to the new (and improved) HERO Games site. We've updated the software package that this site utilizes, focusing on integration and improved functionality for you (yes, you!). The site, store, and all other sections are now driven through the same database -- requiring only one registration. We've kept the old forum registrations active in order to maintain all forum content.
There are more new features than we can comfortably list here, but of particular note is the addition of more payment options as well as the easy purchase and use of gift certificates for the store.
The one downside is that we are not able to merge the old online store accounts into the new system. This means that your purchase history, downloads, etc. have been reset. But fear not! We're going to keep the old site up and running for a while, allowing you to access your old account and re-download any items that you need.
We will try to keep the old site up and running for as long as we can, but you are highly encouraged to download any prior purchases from it in the immediate future. To access the old site (and your previous downloads/purchase history), go to http://www.herogames.com/userCP.htm.
As HERO Designer has reached a stable point in its development over the past year, updates have slowed significantly. While the product is still under active development and is fully supported, the feature set and enhancements are not changing at a rate that supports the service contract model which has been used to date. As a result, HERO Designer is now shifting to a straight sales model -- simply purchase the application through the store and as updates are released, you will be able to re-download the application to apply the update.
At such time as major changes/enhancements are made to the software, a new version will be placed up for sale in the store. Those who have purchased HERO Designer already will receive discounts on the purchase of a new version.
Users who have active service contracts for HERO Designer should open a support ticket (Client Area -> Support) in the HERO Designer department. Provide your username on the old site (the one used to purchase the service contract) and you will be manually added into the new system with a purchase of HERO Designer.
Created by veteran programmer David Tannen, HERO COMBAT MANAGER is designed to assist a Game Master (GM) who is using the HERO System 5th Edition or HERO System 6th Edition rule sets to run a tabletop role playing game. With this program you will be able to manage most combat situations that occur when running combat using the HERO System gaming session.
