  1. Not completely clear on what you’re asking....will try to answer both possibilities I can see: If the files you have are HD save files (which are an XML structure), they just need the proper extension to be used in HD — .hdc for characters (as an example) If the files you have are HCM files, those are created from HD exports, but that process is one-way. You use HD to create characters that are exported and loaded into HCM.
  2. Old holdovers from, I believe, HeroSphere integration. The UI controls for them were removed when HeroSphere went away.
  3. I have zero idea how Jason is handling Kickstarter campaigns in regards to delivery. Anything purchased on this site is part of your account and available for download. Anything purchased elsewhere (e.g. Kickstarter) would be available through the download mechanism provided by the campaign.
  4. If you didn't maintain backups of them, they are gone.
  5. The site moved to new software (and a new server) in 2013 -- while the forums were brought along for the ride, purchase history was not a part of the transfer.

    Skills export

    That should be entirely up to the export format that you choose -- the actual export process isn't really any different for Skills vs. any other ability (all of the same export tags and structures are available)
  7. Store -> Manage Purchases Store -> Client Area -> Purchases Both get you to the same place.
  8. I would agree with awful at politics...the rest I think may be too dogmatic. He certainly leaned in that direction, but I don't think it was as cut and dry as all that...
  9. Considering that he spent a fair bit of time living in Dubuque, Iowa (the origin of "Winter is Coming"), I wouldn't be surprised...
  10. Posting out of curiosity and a desire to read a bit outside of my somewhat known "bubble": what do folks think of the History Channel's Grant miniseries? I'm in the town that he (and 8 other generals) called home both before and after the Civil War (aka locally The War of the Rebellion), so our perspective on things is slightly skewed. That said, I thought the series did an admirable job of showing a man who was trying to do good but (at times) betrayed by his belief that others were equally as good/just...which is to say, a good person (and an arguably brilliant general for hi
  11. Yup...though I would strongly recommend updating in that case (even if you still have it to make the transfer) -- you'll find a LOT more functionality in the current version.
  12. Also note: if you still have the HD installation from your windows system, it will run just fine under MacOS as well -- the joys of Java.
  13. No, since prior to 2013 (when we moved the site to new software and changed the sales model for HD), HD was sold under a 2 year support contract. You would have needed to renew your support contract in order to download updates/new versions/etc. We did continue to honor existing support contracts after the move, but those all ran out by 2015. The good news is that the cost to purchase HD was (intentionally) kept the same as the cost to renew your support contract ($25)...so you're not out anything.
  14. I'm sorry if the rules aren't making sense to you -- this isn't the place for rules discussion, this is a forum for discussion of HD. You expressed a concern that HD was not following the rules (math error), and I explained that it was and gave you the relevant rules. If you would like to discuss those rules, I would suggest posting in the HERO System Discussion forum.
  15. Again, please review the rules. They are not multipliers, they're Advantages and Limitations. As for a 1/2 Limitation resulting in a net decrease in cost of 33%, that's just math: The Active Cost of a Power equals its Base Cost * (1+Advantages total) The Real Cost of a Power equals its Active Cost / (1+Limitations total)
  16. You'll want to review the rules regarding how Advantages and Limitations work...as well as general math. 30/(1-.5) = 30/.5 = 60...and doesn't really have anything to do with HERO System. A 30 Active Point Power with -1/2 in total Limitations would calculate as: 30 / (1+1/2) = 30 / (3/2) = 60/3 = 20 points A 30 Active Point Power with +1/2 in Advantages would calculate as: 30 * (1+1/2) = 30 * (3/2) = 90/2 = 45 points Apply a -1/2 Limitation to the Advantaged Power above and the calculation follows the same rules: 45 /(1+1/2) = 30 points
  17. Best wishes for a problem-free surgery and easy recovery (or as easy as can be hoped)
  18. Sadly, not much good to update: she's been moved to hospice.
  19. Totally agreed...and we have examples of doing it better in our immediate past. Avoiding political discussions here, but on the US side, much of the infrastructure, federal guidance, and material-readiness that has been in place for previous pandemics and health crises was either slow to come or entirely lacking during this.
  20. Also, just to point out again, we haven't reached the first peak yet, so it's a bit early to be talking about what the second peak may look like.
  21. Yeah. I dislike the logic of "it could have been worse." "Could it have been better?" is a more appropriate question to ask...and when the answer to that is "yes," you're talking about deaths that could have been prevented.
  22. Agreed - 100%...though I will add that those who haven't had it become personal can still be emotionally affected and aware of the scope of the tragedy that's continuing to unfold. I was in that group and am now in the "close to home" group and can somewhat confidently say that they're not too different, just more personal now. My aunt (this shouldn't matter, but early 70's, special needs, had been living in an assisted care facility) was recently moved to the ICU showing all the (bad) signs of COVID-19. This isn't meant to take away from your post -- the majority fall into the category t
  23. First things first: you can contact Jason at support by clicking on the "Support" tab at the top of the screen and starting a new request. What you're seeing is a check on your credit card, no funds have been withdrawn (nor will they be). The credit processor that HERO Games uses performs a verification step prior to actually charging the card. This verification step includes validating the card number as well as the address associated with it and that the funds are available (basically, that the charge will go through). The address validation in particular fails frequently for in
  24. With 100k dead (and not seeing the peak yet), I'm curious what you would consider "too much destruction"...
  25. Other than not using it anymore, I don't believe that you do anything.
