Nice to see this actually on the verge of release. Gratz.

However, I do have a question, or maybe a little gripe, depends on the answer.

So the store is web based, and totally separate from the actual application? So I have to login to a web store, buy, generate and then download, then import?

If this is just for the teaser, then great! But I am hoping when released I will shop and import from the store directly through the RW application. Or at least be able to import from the RW application if the store is browser only.

I'm going to make a guess that this store is going to end up being much more than just Realm Works.

I'm willing to be there's a Hero Lab Online button sitting there somewhere with a setting hiding it from the rest of the world.

I asked this question before and got no official answer but the general response from the community here was basically: "Dream on!"

But I agree, it's 2017, we should be able to shop, download and import stuff without having to leave the application.

I'm pretty sure their original plans were to have everything integrated into the application and their servers, but then they changed directions and this...less elegant external download/import/export system is the result.

Yeah from memory they did this to speed up delivery of the CM as a built in one was going to take longer to develop.

Do you want it as soon as possible, or do you want it integrated into the product? At this point, I'm glad they picked as soon as possible.

Why do I hear Duke Nukem in the background all of a sudden.

I guess functional over never released is better.
