BRPG v1.4j Patch for Mac & Windows
How to "install" this patch: Unzip the downloaded file, then simply move the included files into the corresponding BRPG v1.4i folders, overwriting the existing files when prompted.
Although a ReadMe file with the information below is contained in the v1.4j download, some people might find it useful to see the changes prior to downloading the zip file.
¢ Change: The Card Table window is no longer modal. You can now click on the map window to bring it to the front, over the Card Table.
¢ Added a hotkey ([Shift-C]) to open the Card Table, or to bring it to the front, if it is already open.
¢ Added a button for auto-rolling dice macros right from the map window. The button is located in the lower left corner of the map window. Holding down the Shift key while selecting a dice macro will allow you to make last-minute changes to the dice macro prior to rolling it.
¢ Added a "Shuffle This Card Into Deck" command to the Card Table.
¢ Added a "Place This Card in Bottom of Deck" command to the Card Table.
¢ Bug fix: When using custom card decks, the "Back of Card" graphic for the standard card deck was being displayed.
¢ Bug fix: An error no longer occurs on Windows PCs if you add a card player prior to selecting a card deck.
¢ Bug fix: Custom card decks are now automatically loaded when you load a card game that uses a custom card deck. You no longer need to load the deck manually prior to loading the card game.
¢ Bug fix: It was not possible to have more than one custom die of each type (d4, d6, d8, etc.) in the same folder within BRPG's "Dice Sets" folder.
¢ Bug fix: Addressed a cosmetic issue when auto-rolling dice macros.
¢ Bug fix: The snap-to-grid setting for a loaded Encounter is now observed.
¢ Bug fix: Obsolete instructions for changing groups in the Participants List were being given in a player's Chat Window when he/she joined the game session.
¢ Bug fix: The automatic vertical offset adjustment for "Front View" tokens was inverted.
¢ Bug fix: There was no visual preview when changing a unit's horizontal and vertical offsets, if the unit's artwork was from an artpack.
