2.6 Beta Testing

Post by gandreas » Fri Aug 20, 2010 4:27 pm

(Some of you have already seen the "call for testers" in another thread and have responded - I'll be adding those requests shortly)

2.6 is finally to the point where I'm pretty happy with it: just finished tweaking a couple of things that prevented the 3.5e "Multiple Attacks Per Round" from working - there's now a nice little segmented control that shows your current bonus for each of the possible attacks (and "-" for those that are greater than your characters attacks per round), which automatically moves to the next one when you roll a weapon attack.

Now all that's left is to do some machine/OS testing (iPhone4 vs iPhone 3G vs iPad vs iPods, 4.0.x vs 3.2.x vs 3.1.x) and then configure the provisioning for the beta testers and build and send it out. So the sooner you get back to me the better.

Especially those of you who either play 3.5e, have done character sheet work, or have run into larger bugs (like the "low open reroll").

I'm happy to help. Let me know if you need my iPad ID again.

The first batch of beta testing emails has been sent out - basically everybody who requested it recently and sent their device's id should be on the list.

Hopefully now I can get to sending out a new MaPnakotic beta...

Testing the 2.6 beta right now, and it is looking good, just need to build a new character sheet for exalted! I'm loving the new dice codex.

Keep up the good work.

After far too long, the 2.6 version has been submitted to the AppStore. And there's even a surprise feature (actually part of a 3.0 feature that "snuck in"):

Image

Yes, you could just use multi-tasking to switch to iBooks and view a PDF there, but not everybody has multi-tasking capable devices (including iPads which don't have multi-tasking yet). You upload the PDF with iTunes' "file sharing" capabilities (support has also been extended to use iTunes to upload things like background images, instead of having to go through the web based editor uploading).

This is going to be one of the "active background" features for 3.0 - right now you have to navigate to this viewer, but in 3.0 this will "live" underneath the dice (replacing the background image).

Still not in the store, apple is taking it's time reviewing it.
