I live… AGAIN

Hello guys,

Last update was more than 1 year ago, so I bet you though I was gone 😛

I was not!

My real life duties had the best of my role playing hobby, I’m a happy father now 🙂

However let’s get back to business, recently I got some free time to dedicate to the application and in the next month I plan to release a new version.

But as usual I need your help! If you think you can fill any of the position below, please contact me.

  • Maintain the MacOSX version ( @neonbasschild are you still available ? )
  • Data-mining the “Book of Water” and build its data-pack
  • Data-mining the “Book of the Void” and build its data-pack
  • Beta testers ( need to be able to run the program from source, and submit issues to GitHub )

The next version will be labeled 3.10.x, and a lot of under-the-hood work has been done to make the program more reliable.

One of the compromises that I had to accept is that old character files will not be compatible.

Till next time 🙂

Released L5RCM v3.9.5

Another version has been released ( although the downloads may need some time to be available ).

So what’s the deal? 

  • When you save or export a character it will now propose the full character name as file name
  • Yet another rank advancement issue, mainly for alternate paths and advanced schools
  • Fixed a rare bug that prevented the character to be exported
  • Re-introduced toggable banner

Finally I released a preview of a new feature: NPC Export.

It’s simple, you just select two character files and click the button.

The former characters will be exported into a single specially formatted NPC sheet.

First page of the NPC sheet

Since it’s a preview feature NOT EVERYTHING IS IN PLACE, YET! 🙂 bear with me.

But you’re welcomed to try it and report feedbacks!


Some data pack has been also updated, mainly the Stronghold one ( v1.2-fixed ) that feature the introduction of all ( I hope ) the alternate paths from the book.

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 🙂
