We're Back!

If you're here, you know Paragon City, The Rogue Isles and Praetoria are all back, live and kicking.

This is a simple update of the ten-year-old Heroica! site, done mainly to bring it into the modern era and easier to display on modern browsers and devices.

On the very slim chance you're looking for something on the old site, you can find it here.

City of Zeroes is back!

Some oldsters might remember our very own webcomic, City of Zeroes, which chronicled the lives of two hapless citizens as they battled villiains and heroes alike. The artist stopped about a year before Live went down, and the 'toon completely disappeared from the web. Completely.

But I tracked him down and he was good to have me put it all back up... so here it is! Visit and bookmark!

NEW! Controller Button Mapping

Probably obsolete with the new controller support coming in Issue 27. Stay tuned.

Have a game controller like an Xbox or DS4? CoX is not very controller-friendly, but with some work you might be able to map yours to an acceptable control scheme. The starting point is to figure out how the game's default “joystick” key names map to your controller. These two files can help.

Save your bindfile. Load the "Load" file. Park somewhere far from other players, like your base, and a Local say will identify each button you push. Make a note. To remove ALL controller binds from a file, load the "Clear" file, then save and reload your bindfile. There's more about this in the Guide.

News from Paragon City

Looking for an SG with all the base features, optimized for the mostly-solo crowd, and with a genuine guru as leader? (He's modest, too.) Ping for an invite to Gunner's Mates on Excelsior.

The Future?

I know there are tons of references and resources for the game, old and new, but I hope to have good reason to keep expanding this site. Feedback and suggestions very much appreciated!


I'd love to hear from any renewed player for any reason, on the net or in the game. You can find me at:

See you there... or Redside, Blueside or Goldside in the game!
