Hello again. I just wanted to pass along some information to you that would be helpful for the group to be aware of in regards to HeroMachine 3's continued usability:
As of possibly 1/12/2021 or a little bit before that date, the online version of HeroMachine 3 itself unfortunately no longer works right now since Jeff Hebert was not able to find a replacement for Adobe Flash Player that is able to run the program and its assets.
That being said, Jeff did share a way for people to still be able to use HeroMachine 3 locally on their computers. Here are the directions he posted from a user on the forums as to how to do this, as well as the .swf files people would need to obtain for the HeroMachine version they choose to use:
Here is the HowToGeek article mentioned at the above link, where it contains all the versions of the Flash Player Debugger program, so people would have to find the version appropriate for their operating systems:
I ran HM3 (I specifically used the no-ads version with the bigger canvas, but anyone interested can try this with any version they want) locally this way and it works like anyone who uses HeroMachine is used to the program working. However, there are two issues to be aware of when using it locally:
-One issue that Jeff mentions local versions have (and there is currently no fix for this yet) is the inability to export images of the characters from the local versions of the tool. I got around that by taking a carefully cropped screenshot of the character, which I never had to do for HeroMachine before, but it's an alternative to the idea mentioned in Jeff's post about saving it as a .txt file.
-Another issue is that you won't have access to any saved characters you previously had in the browser version, unless you have the .txt files for them saved on your computer.
Feel free to copy and paste all the above as is or adjust it however you would like to for an entry into the group's journal. These are the only ways to continue using HeroMachine 3 until the online tool itself gets back up and running properly.
Hey, JR. Are you still actively running the HeroMachine 3 group here?
I submitted 3 pieces of mine to the Featured folder there like you ask members to do. My first 3 were submitted on 1/13. Since I have yet to receive my own assigned folder to put my work into, I waited more than 24 hours before I submitted another 3 characters today since you said that was allowed until a folder could be made.
Just to keep from spamming there, I’ll hold off on adding anything more to the group until whenever I get a folder to send my pieces into.
