    No CreditCard :(

    Boy, it's a huge inconvenience I can't use PayPal to buy HeroLab. I don't have a creditcard and, besides this one instance, have never had a reason to have one, so I don't really want to get one.
    Is there ANY other way to pay for HeroLab? Not being able to save my characters is problematically time-inefficient...

    I bought my copy with a prepaid credit card. You get one for as small amount as you need at various locations and buy it that way.

    I hope that wasn't the impression I gave. Have you been to their website?

    (And please note, I'm not saying for a company to be less-than-cutting-edge is bad, especially for a small outfit. But it does suggest certain limitations to one's options when dealing with them.)

    I actually bought my copy as packaged software--CDs and everything!--on Amazon a few years back, but last I checked, they're still out of stock. Perhaps eBay or a game company with alternative payment methods might still have a few of the boxed copies for sale.

    But yeah, beyond that you'll just have to find a way to get them a credit/debit card number. I'd mention your difficulties and suggest alternatives once you finally do buy it though; maybe if they realize there's actual demand from other markets they'd make a change. It's frustrating enough that more than once I've toyed with the idea of working on an open source knockoff.

    When I first got HeroLab I actually got the owner of my FLGS to do it for me. This was nearly a decade ago, though, and cash cards weren't as common as they are now.

    This comes up occasionally and Rob at Lone Wolf is adamant that they only do credit cards. Your two best options are to either get a cash card at the grocery store or to have a friend with a credit card buy it for you and then to pay them back.
