Recently Grumpy Gnome Games contacted me for permission to use HeroMachine 3 images in their upcoming spy-themed gambling card game, "Secret Agent Adventures". Naturally I said yes and I have to say, it turned out really well! If you're an in-person gamer, check it out and let us know what you think if you end up playing it.
Friend of HeroMachine John Hartwell has added another awesome Holiday League team to his roster, the Bourbonville Krewe!
John's one of the guys I played Champions with back in college, games that served as one of the primary motivations for creating HeroMachine in the first place. He's now moved on to a successful career as a sports marketing genius, creating awesome logos and team identities. It's like creating a super-hero only for real!
Friend of HeroMachine Ben Finn is helping promising new writer Melody Wolfe launch a Kickstarter for her new fantasy novel, "Rivertown":
Rivertown is the story of a young woman who rises to heroism in the face of a growing crisis. Against a backdrop of mystery and secrets, she must discover who she is, and how to save the people she loves.
The Kickstarter runs from Feb. 19 to Mar. 19, 2015!
The samples I've read so far sound really good and the cover art looks fantastic:
The HeroMachine community is all about helping artists find their voices and making imaginations come to life, so I hope you'll take a moment to head on over to the campaign and help Melody (and Ben!) out with her dream.
Marvel has released the first official trailer for "Avengers 2: Age of Ultron"! Check it out and let us know what you think in the comments.
For a long-outstanding prize request, I've just uploaded the following item to Companion-Vehicles:
"The Forsaken" by Valyndril
UPDATE: I just installed a fix that's working in Chrome, but I don't have IE. Can someone who does please go to the HM3 app, hold down CTRL-F5 to force it to refresh with the latest version of the app, and try exporting again, please? Thank you!
UPDATE 2: I have confirmation from djuby (who originally reported the problem) that IE is fixed now as well. Woot!
I've gotten a couple of reports that Internet Explorer is no longer allowing you to export images from HM3 as of last night. Reports are from both IE9 and IE11. In testing, Chrome worked this morning with Chrome Version 34.0.1847.131 but a few moments later after I "upgraded" to Chrome Version 34.0.1847.137 it was broken.
So something major changed for it to affect two different browsers from both Google and Microsoft. I don't know what, I haven't changed anything in the code base.
Once again you'll have to do screen captures till I figure out what they broke THIS time. It's very frustrating, I apologize.
