    Savage Worlds 2019/February update

    New major update for Savage Worlds ruleset will be available on February 26th.

    This update provides new features and improvements for the Savage Worlds Deluxe ruleset but also provides important groundwork for the Savage Worlds Adventure Edition (SWADE) ruleset release!

    SWADE is new purchasable item, available in FG Store starting Feb 26th and soon in Steam Store. Read more about the product from the store's description page!
    FG Store: Savage Worlds Adventure Edition

    When you launch your existing Savage Worlds campaign after the update you will be asked if you would like to update the campaign to use SWADE rules. You can continue playing with Deluxe rules by declining. This will be asked only once for your campaign.

    If you declined the SWADE update when it was asked the first time, you can manually apply the update by using /swade slash command in your campaign.

    After the update, whether you have purchased SWADE or not, you will have two Savage Worlds related rulesets in Create New Campaign view: SavageWorlds and SWD.

    To play with Deluxe rules you should use SWD ruleset and to play with SWADE use SavageWorlds ruleset. You can use any of your existing Savage Worlds products and modules with both of the rulesets!

    Happy gaming!

    Sorry to say that, but this update completely broke all Deadland campaigns. Has this been tested at all with it and other settings?
    Not only there was a LUA error when I opted out, but now operations related to bennies and the Deadlands poker chips fails and generates error (resetting chips for example). Also the chip bag for Deadlands is gone, Marshal Fate chips is replaced with the regular benny, the poker table is gone, drawing benny draws regular benny instead of the "Deadlands" specifics. Using the console commands to draw and reset chip does not improve the situation.

    I have a second machine where I didn't run the updater and I hope I can salvage the vault and ruleset files and won't have to cancel the games.


    PS: Also in my Launcher the SWD ruleset is missing, which is probably the reason for those failures?

    If you updates during the half hour that the SW was partially prematurely released this morning (PST), then you only got partial update.

    You can either delete the SacageWorkss.pak and run a new Update this evening to get the rollback, or wait until tomorrow 10am PST time zone for the full update to be pushed.

    So I managed to be one of the "lucky" guys?
    I will got the pak and vault files from my second machine and once the game is over tonight I will sort this out and buy the SWADE ruleset.

    If you did the update earlier, you may want to check Moon Wizard's previous message and are probably going to need to wait for the corrected update to be pushed out at about 10AM PST.

    A big thanks to Aki for all his hard work on this project!

    In addition to creating the new ruleset/modules for SWADE, he also updated 115 other Savage Worlds DLC to work with the new rules, as well as reviewing dozens of others for compatibility.

    Please go out, buy the latest updates, and support his efforts.
