    Test Version 2.7

    -- EDIT 2010-07-12
    Test Release 6 pushed to test mode.

    Please see the sticky thread on public testing if you want to be involved.

    OK, it's finally time for the next test version. I have been heads down crunching through the code, learning and growing the code at the same time. This is my first release, so be gentle.

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

    Given the large number of changes to FG all around; I expect that there will be issues, so I plan to have this version in test for a longer period than usual and that there will be several iterations. I also expect that there may be new crash bugs introduced during the first couple iterations.

    I'm hoping that the great community that we have here will help me identify and work through the issues to make this version of FG the best yet. I have uploaded test versions for all license types, so you can even try to run your gaming session with the test version. Make sure that you try out the changes on your own first, and make a backup of your campaign beforehand.

    Unless Doug finds anything obvious in the next 24 hours, I plan to release the 2.7 test version tomorrow (2010-05-31).

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

    Fantastic! Thank you.

    Is there any chance, or a priority, for updating the D20_JPG ruleset when the bugs are quashed?

    People may want to hold off testing currently. We have an issue with a dependent directX file we need to work out first.

    Okay, we should be good to go again now. If you downloaded the first release of the patch and can't launch Fantasy Grounds right now, just go to the application directory and launch the FantasyGroundsUpdater.exe again. It should remedy your problem.

    Wow! Awesome. Thanks, SW. Everything worked fine for me in a quick run through of the new features, except the problem below. I'll test this release out with my group on Thursday and Saturday.

    The "effects" icon within entries on the CT is missing. I can click the area where it used to be in order to continue using the functionality, but the image is not actually there.
