Another beta is out!

Big THANKS to the players who sent me error reports, which allowed me to nail quite a few bugs in this release!

I tried this over this past weekend, but I was unable to type anything in the character naming field.

Also, I was able to left-click to increment character stats, but right-clicking to decrement them wasn't working. And there was also some overlap of buttons over the list of available races, making selection difficult.

Unfortunately, without a named character I couldn't proceed to look at anything else.

Right click is not implemented, you reset stats using the reset button. The naming box doesn't work either.

I am working presently on a fix for the overlap buttons in 1366x768. I will release the fix as a single file, as in the meantime, I am partway through a big spell rework...

A hotfix for those with 1366x768 or similar resolutions:

https://bitbucket.org/Zireael07/the-veins-of-the-earth/downloads/Birther.lua

Save to /modules/VotE/dialogs and overwrite the existing file.

A sprawling assortment with some already tracked down otherwise, some not.  One close to the top, for instance, aims for an OGL adaptation of sorts for various things from D&D 4e...

Thanks, that is an excellent repository of all things OGL.
 
In other news, there's a new beta, mostly focused on UI and bugfixing, and I have to thank Supermini from te4.org forums yet again for his invaluable feedback!

I have put out several test versions on te4.org in preparation for the next beta.

I got some feedback yesterday from a player on OS X and it seems I need to go through the code and pick any errant case which is making problems on this case-sensitive system.

Not to mention there's a few things which stubbornly refuse to work and a new WIP feature.

Beta 5.6. is out and FruitandGarbage from forums.te4.org gets a prize for being a most persistent tester - in addition to providing invaluable feedback about the game working on OS X.

We're getting yet another thing to differentiate Veins from Incursion!

Back from hols for a few days, started working on a randomized worldmap.



It doesn't do anything yet, but it generates pretty for different characters.

Tell me, how many of you wished for a worldmap in Inc?

Gonna go ahead and reckon everybody was hoping for that given it was to be one of the major draws for the Beyond Tech Demo Incursion alongside that massive rewrite---nice to see that is starting to enter the mix alongside all the rest.

And speaking of OGL, by complete accident I discovered the existence of Eclipse, which is free.

I've also found a wealth of conversion guides for d20/Pathfinder on the net, so I will have something to work off when I think about overhauling char gen to use some form of point buy, which has been on my list for very long (basically to let players unlock more points by leveling up, so in some way 'unlocking' more powerful classes/races).

In related news, I've fixed the ASCII/tiles switch to work at last (to be frank, I gave up on the previous version and simply copied ToME's code and shaved off unused stuff).

Regarding Brigand's problems with Solstice and Chrome, I would like to know if anyone here uses Chrome and had problems with the browser flagging the download as suspicious/malware.
