Hardcover rulebooks and adventures, I imagine. It's more than a bit dishonest to claim that he only bought the stuff because of Hero Lab, though. Especially with the rules being Open Game content. He bought them because he wanted to play the system, and is now claiming he can't play without Hero Lab.

I have 5 licenses for my fairly large group of data sets.

I am fond of using good tools to make my gaming enjoyable but if this is addressed poorly I'm going to be a sad panda.
This was specifically addressed in the FAQ, which you will find here:

Please see the question entitled:"How will my Hero Lab Classic secondary licenses transfer to Hero Lab Online?"

I am not sure that is the case if you read his post:

He says he bought it via HLC... I have no idea what Starfinder products he bought via HLC.

If I didn't think it would irritate some already irritable users I'd suggest what I do and use this.

Really, Paul?!?! There was only one sentence there to read, yet you conveniently chose to ignore the first half of it. After your earlier (read: disrespectful) antics in the other thread and now this, you need to take a timeout. Give it some thought, come back as a Hero Lab user, and stop trying to surreptitiously pimp your wares/agenda on our forums. I'm being dead serious here.

Thank you for your cooperation...

I have been working in software development for a long time, and this is the most open and honest discussion about the realities of application development that I have ever seen. Since I first bought Hero Lab years ago, these developers have always been this way. This kind of candor and respect for the community is something I have come to really appreciate about Lone Wolf Development. These folks work harder and care more about their work than any developer I have worked with, and it is evident in the things they create. They can't be in it for the money...if so, they are doing it all wrong. You just don't get software of this complexity and quality out of a tiny development studio without passion and sacrifice and highly skilled developers.

So, even though I am old and crotchety and impatient and generally afraid of change, I am content to wait and see what the future of Hero Lab (and other Lone Wolf stuff) has in store. Nobody wants this to be great more than Lone Wolf, and I trust that they are capable of making that happen.

Exactly. It was an observation, not a judgment. There is nothing necessarily wrong with being resistant to change. But if you need to change to meet your goals, you may have to leave behind those that are not interested in making the change with you.

First of thanks for the exhaustive answers! While not everything is completely to my liking, I understand the need of a company and appreciate the honesty.

I am mainly a Realm Works user and bought HL only for the Tactical Console. Basically as an expensive Initiative Tracker. I have a Player Character Topic in which I have a HL portfolio with all my chars.
Will I be able to automatically update this with HLO? When all chars of the group are in the cloud, can I pull the information into RW instead of doing it manually after level up?

At the beginning of each session I load the PCs portfolio into HL and each enounter I add the opponents and remove them after the fight. Works pretty fine.
Will this still work with HLO? Will there be a tactical console? Can Realm Works interact with HLO in the browser?
