Release: December 2, 2021

Release Notes: Features

Feature: Gifts

Users can now gift other users forge items
Crafter's can gift users any of their created items, as long as that item has a single approved build, this includes unlisted items.
Otherwise, users can purchase and gift Items that cost gold, pulling the cost out of their own treasury.
This can be done through the new gift button on the view item page, below buy(or owned) and donate. After clicking it a dropdown will appear where the gifter can type in the recipient's username.
Once an item is gifted, the gift receiver should receive an email informing them, and can accept or reject the gift from their inventory page, in the new pending gifts section.
When a gift is accepted, an email will be sent out to the gifter to inform them, and it will move to the users inventory, and from there it acts as a normal purchase would.
When a gift is rejected, an email will be sent out to the gifter, and any gold spent on the item will be refunded to their treasury.

Feature: When submitting a build, if there is an invalid file, it will notify the uploader of the first file that failed validation so they can better tackle fixing it.



Release: November 10, 2021

Release Notes: Features

Users no longer have to be logged in to view the Forge, although logging in is still required for purchases and other functionality.


Release Notes: Fixes

Fixed instances where users could not see items in the client, or disable items from the forge. If you cannot see an item in the client, please try disabling and reenabling it.
Fixed an issue with donations in crafter transaction tables.


Release: October 13, 2021

Release Notes

Added Token Pack Builder
Added Portrait Pack Builder
Added Map Pack Builder


* To use the new builders, set the product type to a Map Pack, Token Pack, or Portrait Pack. Once you do this, there will be a new tab added to the Build Uploads screen where you can drag and drop files to the screen. Portraits will be automatically re-sized to 100px by 100px. Tokens will be automatically resized to 100px by 100px for medium and smaller, and 200px by 200px for larger than human sized creatures. Maps will use meta-data files (xml files) that match the same filenames when present. If missing, the system will generate a meta-data file for it with the gridsize you specify on the form. You can specify a folder name for each image or leave it in the root of the images folder.

Thanks for all the work on Forge. I do love the fact it keeps my extensions auto updated.
For users that have originally purchased on DMG where the product has moved to Forge would there be a way to automate in bulk to get it gifted on forge? For example, a feature of a bulk gift to a list of users or where as a user they could send proof of purchase/ownership to SmiteWorks to trigger the gift.

That was discussed in some thread, and this is sadly not possible, if I recall correctly. You can try to contact the dev such that they do it for you, but it is unlikely that they do it for all customers depending on the number of users :)

Wasn't what was discussed was that DMG would need to share customer details? Neither of the suggestions above would mean they would have to do that.
As you say, devs are not going to want to gift separately to hundreds or thousands of users.

Depending upon the type of account the person has with the DMsGuild, they may not have access to a list of people who bought their products there. And OBS will not give SW such a list (privacy etc). So, in many/most cases their is no way for anyone to know who the actual purchasers from the Guild are. Therefore their is no way to bulk convert or gift items. I'm not even sure their is a good way to validate you are a purchaser on a one-by one basis (even though I can think of 2 possibilities for such).
