Curious if HLC will be updated to work on ARM Macs.

Also, is support for classic ongoing? I read that they are moving Pathfinder 1E to online. I don't want to buy a subscription. Will classic still be supported or are they getting rid of it?

I can't say what the future holds, but it isn't really supported today, it is largely abandonware at this point.

Regardless of the naysayers, Classic still works, and is officially supported, even if they aren't releasing regular updates anymore. There's ongoing work for many systems, though most of that is currently done by the users, not Lone Wolf. Pathfinder 1e should be available in HLO "soon", but you don't have to change to online. All the Classic stuff isn't going anywhere.

Rosetta 2 should be able to take care of this, even without a recompile from Lone Wolf to target the M1 chip.

For some definition of "works".

The auto-recalculation of every field whenever a change is made really slows things down (at least it does on macOS, and I've heard from Windows users in my gaming group that the same issue is present there as well).

So what does supported mean to you? Because it clearly doesn't mean that they are fixing bugs or releasing new content. Maybe you meant to put "supported" inside quotes?

And that's really the problem isn't it? It isn't going anywhere.

It was pretty obviously from even prior to the announcement of HLO that what is now known as HLC was going to be the red-headed stepchild. I have to assume that they're making a bundle of money on HLO since they've kicked HLC to the curb. Or maybe they're still selling HLC to unsuspecting people who don't know what shape it's in? So they can collect that income and do nothing, while also collecting the subscription fees from HLO. It's a good gig, for as long as it lasts...
