It's really disappointing how much HEM1 support has fallen off; it's just bad now imo, in my experience anyway. Forum posts don't get replied to nearly as fast as they used to. There are hardly any updates to HEM1 anymore; we have to wait for months before features finally get implemented. Some things they refuse to put into HEM1.
I get that HEM2 is the main thing now and the cool new features and bulk of support should go to the more recent program. However, the thing that's super frustrating is that HEM2 is really buggy and unstable. That's what I've heard anyways every time I ask other poker players about HEM2. The situation is messed up: either one stays with the older program that has inadequate support, or buy a newer program that is worse off than the original in terms of functionality and reliability. We shouldn't have to pay for a program that doesn't work right.
This has always been a source of frustration for me, but now it's worse because of an issue I'm having with recovering my DB. I'm physically unable to recover the old files using a HEM DB export, and to make matters worse, I'm unable to install HEM+postgres on the new comp. I sent support an email over seven hours ago. It used to be that the issue would be responded to and resolved much sooner than that. Instead, now I'm just sitting here all day unable to play with a HUD and without any email response yet.
imo the support on HEM1 needs to be elevated, or the programmers should make HEM 2 a lot more reliable.
