2010-09-03 - Release 3

NOTE: I'd like to make a special request to users running non-D&D rulesets to help make sure this version works for your game, so we don't have to rollback again.

Please see the sticky thread on public testing if you want to be involved. In this case, you want to select the Dev option within the Test Mod Manager to test 2.7.2. The Test option is being saved for groups that are using 2.7.1.

As always, please make a backup of your campaign before opening with a test release.

I will update this thread as I release new iterations of the test version.

As a heads up, I will be away for about a week travelling, so I won't be updating this test release until I return. If it doesn't work for your game, please let me know the issue, then revert to the version you were using before.

The Laundry is imminent, and as I always cut and paste the pdf into FG as a starting point, I will be sure to use this version! :)

Heads Up! There's a new version of CrossOver for Mac available.

v9.1.0 updates with a load of fixes as well as merging with Wine v1.2. :)

Full changelog can be found here (http://www.codeweavers.com/products/cxmac/change_log/).

I have tested FGII 2.6.5 / 2.7.0 / 2.7.1 and the latest development release 2.7.2 on my Snow Leopard i5 iMac, all appear to be working correctly.

Tested as much as I could think of from 2.7.2 against the Earthdawn ruleset I've been working on, everything seems to be working great.


August 28th, 2010, 13:32
Ran some Arm as well as BRP. Both seem to be working.

FG Changes

Missing font values in messagedata objects no longer generates script error messages.
Token lock state of maps was not being remembered. Fixed.

Campaign effects and modifiers in modules were not visible. Fixed.

The first one is the only issue from non-D&D rulesets found. Please double-check your non-D&D rulesets, and I will look at pushing to release again in the next week or two.

Move v2.7.2 off of Test and only on Dev now. Found an issue to do with failed file transfers causing client crashes that I want to test that the patch works well before releasing.

v2.7.2 Test Release 5

FG Changes

Special characters in image or module names would cause file transfers to fail. Fixed.
Clients would sometimes crash on failed image transfers. Fixed.
Version information added to extension tooltip in launcher.


September 9th, 2010, 09:06
I just tried the latest release and I couldn't see any version information under the tooltips for extensions. The first line of the tooltip displays the description, then theres an empty second line (presumably where the version info should be) and then the third line displays author information.

Got a split word when changing "difficult" to italics.

BRP ruleset with a "MyQuest" extension.

Bold is fine, Italics often throws up problems similar to that below (lots of examples if you need more).

I was testing out the test version with some campaign data input and i found a strange thing.
i use a nostromo to create macros for a single space. The macro goes backspace then space and then home and then up arrow. When i hit the button again it repeats the action. Giving me a nice tight paragraph. with the test version i think the up arrow part won't work. in 2.6.5 it works great, and this is a great time saver. and i would hate to lose this functionality. Are the formatted text options going to change, is this in my near future.

DrZ, it looks like the version info patch did not get included for some reason. I will include with next update.

MurghBpurn, Thanks for the example. The word wrapping needed a little more fine-tuning.

Madman, I'm not sure that I understand why your macro is breaking. Is the up arrow not working the same as before in formattedtextcontrols? Which version are you using? I tried the same sequence in 2.7.2, and it worked as I expected. Also, v2.7.2 has a new shortcut for formattedtextcontrols which combines the current paragraph with the next paragraph (CTRL+J), that might work better with what you are trying to do anyway.

It does work in 2.7.2

Thanks for looking

v2.7.2 Test Release 6

FG Changes

Handling of multiple callback handlers for onHotkeyActivated not handled correctly. Fixed. (i.e. modifier echo when CT open)
Dragging a token from a map to the desktop caused the LUA Input library to be unregistered. Fixed. (i.e. Input script error)
buttoncontrol.setIcons was not checking parameters correctly. Fixed.
Links from modules using special characters in their name would break when copied to the campaign. Fixed.
Word wrapping when only single word formatted has been improved.

4E Changes

Blinded effect applies total concealment penalty to attack rolls.
When an invalid or ambiguous slash command used, a list of valid slash commands will be shown.
NPC charisma score was being used instead of the charisma modifier in certain situations. Fixed.
