BRPG v1.6b is now available for download. It is to be considered in beta status for the time being.
The main features of this update are:
¢ The Map Settings panel now allows you to maintain the map's original aspect ratio
¢ You can now load Deployments onto a specific spot on the map
¢ Added the ability to cut, copy, and paste text into or from the Lobby's text input field
¢ Minor bug fixes
The format for Encounters and Deployments has not changed since v1.6a.
BRPG v1.6b is currently only available as a patch for v1.6a. You must already have v1.6a installed in order to use this patch. The "User Cast.cxt" file has not changed since v1.5, so copying over the "User Cast.cxt" file from a prior BRPG version may be a fast and efficient way to preserve your media if you are updating from that version of BRPG.
BRPG v1.6b Patch for Mac & Windows (4.5 MB)
How to "install" this patch: Unzip the downloaded file, then simply move the included files into the corresponding BRPG v1.6a folders, overwriting the existing files when prompted.
Although a ReadMe file with the information below is contained in the v1.6b download, some people might find it useful to see the changes prior to downloading the zip file.
¢ Added a checkbox to the Map Settings panel to maintain the map's original aspect ratio. This should greatly speed up the time it takes to resize a map.
¢ Added the ability to load a Deployment onto a particular spot on the map. Select the "Load Deployment here..." command from the map's popup menu.
¢ Added a "Center Map on Screen" command to the map's popup menu. Useful if you've "lost" the map by scrolling too far away from it. This command is available to both the GM and the players.
¢ Added the ability to cut, copy, and paste text into or from the Lobby's text input field. However, I could not get the standard shortcuts to work on Mac OS X; you must use the Control key instead of the Command key.
¢ Added a "Purge Artpacks" command to the BG button's popup menu. Use this if, during launch, BRPG asks you to locate an artpack you've disabled.
¢ The Portrait panel now remembers the last category (i.e., subfolder) viewed and automatically accesses that category whenever the panel is opened.
¢ Change: The dice macro configuration screen now remembers where on your screen it was last placed, so that it always opens there instead of centered on the main screen.
¢ Bug fix: The Turn Sequencer was not updating if there was an object assigned to be included in the Turn Sequencer and the option to show unit labels in the TS was enabled.
¢ Bug fix: Unlicensed clients no longer get an alert about a revoked license.
¢ Bug fix: Maps from artpacks should now load properly again (this bug was introduced in v1.5a).
¢ Bug fix: Users are no longer automatically logged out of the Lobby after 10 minutes of inactivity.
¢ Bug fix: Values tracked in the Turn Sequencer that were set to be editable only by the GM could not be changed even by the GM.
¢ Bug fix: Fixed an issue with the "Chat As" and chat alias functionality in the Chat window.
