[Resolved] HeroCloud Server Binary License?
« on: Sep 23, 11, 05:22:56 PM »

It its great news to hear that there will be a HeroCloud source license.

this is great for medium size game studios(medium size budget).

but i was wondering if there is any near future plans for HE to release a
server binary license for small indie studios or even individuals who are interested
in hosting their own server in a datacenter of their choice?


thanks in advanced.

Luis, I'm not exactly sure what you're asking. But we only have two products. The HeroCloud, and the HeroEngine Source License. The HeroEngine Source License gives you all the code we have, and you would use it to host and operate your own servers.

Thanks Cooper,

I was actually referring to binary server app, as a no C++ source code server application that can be installed on any datacenter cloud or server box instead of using the existing HeroCloud network so we can manage our own server on any datacenter we like or best works for us.

but i guess your reply answered my question..

thanks again.

If you can come up with the 6 to 7 digit cost of the HeroEngine Source license then you can upgrade from HeroCloud and to the source license at any time and then you would get full access to your server's source code and everything and you could run it on your own Servers. If you have a publisher who would like to run the Hero Servers in their own data center then you could have them buy the publisher's license (This was stated in the old faq but not sure if it remains true or not).

Hi James,

I guess you are not aware of the new HE source license deal for existing HeroCloud users.
that was released on the September news email

if i am not mistaken it is now on a 5 digit cost for existing HeroCloud users as a pilot program.
