Version 5.0.218 released

GURPS Character Assistant has been released. Get the updated installer from your Warehouse 23 downloads page. (I’ve posted some help on doing that at both the new and old stores here.)

You get the updated installer by re-downloading the ZIP file from your Warehouse 23 account, and running the gca5setup_5.0.218.release.exe program that it contains (see the instructions link above). There is no separate update-only installer, you have to download and reinstall the program. It will not overwrite your personal data, it will overwrite your installation of GCA with the new and updated version.

This update includes all the changes mentioned in Build Notes posts since the last Release. This time around that is mostly some bug fixes and accessibility improvements, but here are various new things that may be of interest:

    • As usual, a variety of bug fixes, small adjustments, and general improvements
    • Fixed an issue with automatic weight conversions and using the ::baseweight reference
    • Addressed some issues related to modes and how damage might be calculated, in order to allow for a better user experience and less confusion and mistakes in damage formulas
    • Updated handling of damage with special text, such as ‘slam+3’ or ‘HT+formula’, and new user-damage-prefix support using square brackets ‘[prefix]+stuff’
    • Many accessibility fixes and improvements
    • A new Point Summary dialog, both for reference and as an accessible-friendly means of checking points spent
    • Updated gear menu, with new options and handling, for Unified View trait boxes
    • Added a new, bigger Zoom level
    • Added an option to have Templates tracked as their own point expenditure category
    • A new type of plugin which will allow coders to create plugins that users can launch from the Launch menu to do work, either as one-time jobs or as tools that stick around and work while you use GCA
