Postby heruca » Wed Jun 01, 2011 8:47 pm

BRPG v1.7b is now available for download. It is to be considered in beta status for the time being.

The main features of this update are:
¢ Improvements to the Views feature, including the addition of GM-only Views
¢ Bug fixes

The format for Encounters and Deployments has not changed since v1.6m.

BRPG v1.7b is currently only available as a patch for v1.7 or v1.7a. You must already have v1.7 or v1.7a installed in order to use this patch.

Download:
BRPG v1.7b Patch for Mac & Windows (5.8 MB)

How to "install" this patch: Unzip the downloaded file, then simply move the included files into the corresponding BRPG v1.7 or v1.7a folders, overwriting the existing files when prompted.

_________________________________________________________

Although a ReadMe file with the information below is contained in the v1.7b download, some people might find it useful to see the changes prior to downloading the zip file.

Version History:
v1.7b

¢ Added a "Clear All Views" button to the View Manager panel. Clicking on it restores all Views to the default settings.
¢ Added the ability to have GM-only Views. Any View which whose name is enclosed in square brackets (e.g., [Secret Door]) will be inaccessible to players. The number hotkey for that View will not function for the players, and the text on the View button in the View Palette will simply say "GM Only" on the players' screens.
¢ The Shift-RETURN hotkey can now be used by the GM at any time (even if the "Step the Sequence" button is not currently displayed). This will make it easier/faster to play certain solo games which don't have units listed in the Turn Sequencer.
¢ BGE users who attempt to log into a BRPG-hosted game session will now be automatically booted.
¢ Bug fix: The chat input pane and the chat output pane in the Chat window were being cut off on the right side if the Chat window was sized too wide.
¢ Bug fix: View buttons that were designated as invisible were still receiving mouse clicks.
¢ Bug fix: Players were able to set Views. This was never intended in prior releases.

A bug has been found in this release which causes the GM Client to not issue Floating Licenses to players logging in with the free Demo. Do not use v1.7b if you depend on Floating Licenses to run your games.
