Originally developed by Moritz Hartmeier, championBuilder is a helpful tool allowing for Champions Online character delevopment. The original author has unfortunately stopped playing Champions Online and so the community has been left with the task of keeping championBuilder up-to-date. Before continuing we would like to thank the creator for creating this program in such a way that it is easy and accessible to maintain. Thank you.
First thing's first, you'll be needing the latest version of java for this to run. Free Java Download

If this is your first download since 11/11/2011 internal power IDs have been reworked and as such won't allow you to open old saved files. If you would like to transfer builds to the newest update you can use the previous update to view and print any builds saved before this time. See Update 11/11/2011 for details.
There's a bug that causes powers with a lot of advanced information to not allow you to add certain advantages which make that information go over an unknown limit. A workaround for this is to rightclick the power, locking it, and then adding the advantages. If there is still a problem you can post in the championBuilder thread on the official CO forums or PM @Roxstar in game.
