Let’s squash some bugs

L5RCM v3.9.1 is out and brings some improvements but is mostly focused on bugfixes.

Affinity and Deficiency now stacks and can neutralized each other

That’s it, if you get more than one Shugenja schools the affinities and deficiencies will stack and compensate each other. So yeah, you can end with no affinity or no deficiency if you get the right match.

Selected Health method now influence how Health is printed on character sheet

I actually forgot something this obvious :) Now it should be fixed.

Friend of the Brotherhood advantage doesn’t reduce Kiho cost

The title says everything; now if you buy “Friend of the Brotherhood” you became a member of the Brotherhood of Shinsei as far as the Kiho dialog is concerned.

Included missing fonts in the windows installer

This should fix the issue with the PDF weapon page not opening correctly using Adobe Reader. I delivered this fix on Windows only because I could not reproduce the issues on other systems.

Finally, Linux and MacOSX versions are coming.

Enjoy, and don’t forget to drop me your spare zeni :)

What’s new in L5R: CM 3.9.0

Most of my development is made with a workstation with a 1080p screen; however I also use L5R: CM on my laptop that has a screen resolution of 1440×900.

900 vertical pixels, no more. That convinced me that I had to reduce the vertical space needed.

So I’ve removed the banner and the menubar, et voila :D

But the menu was useful

I know that, I’ve not removed the menu, only the menubar and moved the menu under this “AppMenu” gear button. Like it?


As you can see from the screenshot I also added two convenient buttons to generate random male and female names. I’ve removed those 2 entries from the AppMenu, so It’s more compact


I’ve also added some new features, like 3 new health display method. I’ll let you try those.

But I loved the banner

Me too, but I love vertical pixels more :) However I decided to implement customizable background image for those who have larger screens.

Last but not least…

One of the most frequent request is to be able to refund any advancement, not only the last one.
Actually this was also possible in past version but a little tricky. Now you can do it by selecting the advancement to refund and hitting the “Refund” button. Easy.


Google is shutting down Google Code downloads

This is unlucky because currently all L5R: CM downloads are handled via the Download Page of Google Code.

I love that page, because it’s easy to add new downloads, because I can see the effective number of download for each uploaded file!


Now I ( we ) have time until January 2014 to find another hosting. They do recommend Google Drive ( of course ) but they also admit that I’m losing the one feature I care about ( download count ).

I need community advice: do you know of any download hosting I can use?
