HUD for Stud games?

Hello everyone. First of all, I apologize if HUD questions are not allowed or belong in another thread, I didn't really find anything on the topic.
I own HM2, which does not support Stud games, and I'm really into them right now, so here I am wondering if there is a software [allowed on PokerStars] that mainly tracks dead cards in Stud games? Free ones would be a priority, since I'm playing the lowest stakes atm. I tried out FPDB, but I couldn't get it to work for current hands (only past ones, and obv I need dead cards for the hands I'm playing) + FPDB seems super outdated and buggy.

Is Stud Indicator still around?

I believe tracking dead cards via HUD is against the PokerStars TOS, which is why you will have trouble finding one on the open market. Correct me if I'm wrong.

Stud Indicator is allowed and would be perfect, but $149 is just absurd for playing the microstakes.

Re: HUD for Stud games?

Speaking from experience, their market is small, and Pokerstars and the like are actively kind of hostile to this kind of thing, so it becomes kind of a pain in the ass to do. I had to change my card scraper probably 20 times in the time I was maintaining it, due to changes in PS, and some of those were quite difficult. I finally settled on a method that was more of a pain to the user, but less likely to break (OCRing the cards basically from screen grabs)

So I suppose there is no free/cheaper alternative to Stud Indicator?

Not that I know of, but, I haven't kept my eye on the market for it either.

$149 is a bargain imo. Even for micros.
