Thank you for the link. Unfortunately, based on the information I've seen in the "insights" thread, it appears that I am not a use case that matters to them. It makes me sad.

It is a sad situation that they can't find a method to have the same data files work on both HLC and HLO.

Hi Farling. Unfortunately, the two platforms work very differently, so just sharing the content between them isn't possible. We do have future plans to allow you to migrate your content from HLC to HLO that would just incur a less-than-$20 one-time-fee, if that helps.

Yeah, I fully understand that they can't make them both feasible without doubling the workload. For me, internet connectivity isn't about access. I just don't trust public wifi or business wifi. My cell plan has 1GB and no hotspot functionality.

My bigger issue, though, is that with HLC I pay one time and always have my content with full functionality. With HLO, I am constantly paying for access to content I have already paid to have. Non-editable characters is barely giving me access if my subscription lapses. I do not approve.

Still, I understand that I'm in the minority on this one. They have to put their effort into the areas that will yield profitable results. It just makes me sad. I spent a significant amount of money on PF1 content with HLC, and I was very happy with the model for it. For PF2, I will just have to find an alternative or stick with pen and paper.

Transferring PF1 won't be much use without the community pack - and that's a LOT of stuff that would need converting somehow.

Not sure if this is a big deal. I suspect most users donít use it. Of the eight people I play with I am the only one that uses it, and have mentioned it multiple times to them and even offered to help set it up. It def8nately is useful but if you donít visit the forums you would never know about it.

Yeah, not a big deal like having full access offline isn't a big deal.

I mostly use the community pack for its extensive set of adjustments which can be used during a game session.

Psionics, Path of War, and Spheres of Power/Might are a massive part of our gaming; once 1e PF and 3pp stuff works in HLO, we'd love to subscribe. Until then HLC.

You'd "love to subscribe"??

I think you're the first person I've even known who thinks paying for something over and over again is better than paying for it once.

But to each their own...
