So there is no possibility to save characters locally? I don't mind purchasing a product I log into online and can save the characters locally on my own drives.

Raw data exportation is on the roadmap for sometime in the future, FinrodSilver, if that is what you are looking for. Right now you can print your character sheet to PDF.

We’re planning to have statblock export, a data blob export that can be imported using a different HLO account (we have a user-unfriendly version of this already for admin purposes), and eventually a formatted JSON export suitable for use by third-party tools.

We’d also welcome any input on other export formats you would find useful that go beyond just saving a character sheet (specific app compatibility, that kind of thing).

If Starfinder would be released on Herolab Classic, could I migrate from HLO to classic? (transfer Starfinder and add-ons licenses)

I wouldn't reject an XML export to match the XML data in the current portfolios. I use xPath to translate that data to MapTool properties...

But I could live with JSON if needed. Question, will we be able to "request" this export via a web api then (vs manual menu -> export option)? I'm assuming/hoping that a "GM" can request all the PC characters via unique URL and get exported data for use in third party tools...

I think we could fit an XML export too. We'll have to think about the details, since the Starfinder character internals are different in a few ways (some subtle, some major) from existing game systems.

That's definitely the idea. We're still deciding the details of direct API usage, but we're thinking about both direct exports for players/GMs and real-time connections with virtual tabletop tools.

Integration with Roll20 would be nice

This question has never been answered to my satisfaction.

Once Pathfinder has been added to HLO and I transfer my Data sets to HLO when I buy new Data sets is it one purchase for both HLO and classic or do I have to by the data set twice to use on both programs?

Will there be an option/ability to transfer characters between the 2 programs?

I can't find the comment(s) right now, but it has been said that this is a planned feature.

That answer did not actually really clearly answer my questions.

Q: After I migrate, will my purchases show up in both Hero Lab Online and Hero Lab Classic.
A: So long as your purchase is available in both versions of the program, they sure will!

Does that include purchases made after the migration as well or just the ones prior to the migration?
