Update: Check this post for instructions on how to keep using HeroMachine in a local Flash Player Debugger.
Flash has reached its End of Life and HeroMachine no longer works. Thank you for your support over the years and for your interest.
I have paid thousands of dollars and worked for 2+ years for a replacement but alas, it is not yet done. I've investigated replacements for Flash that would allow it to remain operational, but they haven't worked out.
We'll continue to work behind the scenes to see if we can complete the work that's been done so far but clearly, my promises are worth very little right now. I'm devastated and so sorry that we weren't able to bring this thing in for a landing in time.
I'm proud that for 20+ years, this site has enabled people to bring their inner creativity to life. I feel like I've lost a bit of my soul today and I am so, so sorry to have let you all down.
Check back occasionally and / or join the Facebook group (https://www.facebook.com/HeroMachine/) for any future updates.
All the best, and please keep on creating.
