Small update

Hi guys,

I’ve released a new version of “Legend of the Burning Sand” pack, that adds nothing but a small fix ( an aphostrophe that might be misused by the program );

I also released a new version of “Emerald Empire” pack that adds the “Minor Clan Defender” advanced school.

There is more, I finally managed to automatically dump the contents of the packs into a human readable format! So without further ado follow THAT link :)

Contents included in L5RCM packs

As usual you can download the program AND the new packs from here




Spell descriptions

Double click on a spell to get its description

a new version of L5RCM has been released with the inclusion of Spell Descriptions thanks to our user Samuel! :)

This includes a brand new Shugenja sheet and the ability to doubleclick on a spell item to get its description!

Core Pack 4.4 is needed for Spell descriptions to work.

Also the main menu is tidier :)


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.
