31-Oct-2013   October Newsletter Now Available!

 

Our October 2013 newsletter has left the Wolflair. Read the latest news on Army Builder and Realm Works, our recent Pathfinder releases, a message from Frog God Games and more!

You can check out our monthly newsletter here!

25-Oct-2013   The Army Builder Roster Viewer Has Arrived!

 

Your armies have arrived! The Army Builder Roster Viewer for iPhone and iPad is now available in the iTunes app store.

This new, free app provides you with multiple views of your saved rosters, including a standard print-style list, a "card view" with individual cards for each unit, a mobile view optimized for use on the iPhone, or a simple text summary, tournament summary or model list.

We've integrated with Dropbox to make it as easy as possible to view your rosters. Instead of emailing yourself a PDF or transferring files via iTunes, simply save your rosters to Dropbox and have them instantly appear on your iPhone or iPad! Linking your free Dropbox account to the Roster Viewer lets your iPhone or iPad immediately see the list of rosters you’ve saved. If you're planning on playing more than one game in a day, loading multiple rosters onto your iPad is as simple as saving them all to your Dropbox!

Please note that this app is only a viewer for saved rosters. It does not let you create or edit rosters on your iPad or iPhone, only view those created on your desktop or laptop. The Army Builder Roster Viewer should work on any iPhone, iPad, or iPod Touch running iOS5 or higher (including all iPads, the iPhone 3GS and newer, and the third-generation iPod touch and newer). Additionally, rosters must be saved with the latest version of Army Builder (v3.4c).

For our Android fans: The Roster Viewer will initially only be available for Apple devices. However, we’re investigating the possibility of creating an Android app with matching functionality, so keep your eye on our monthly newsletter for further updates.

20-Oct-2013   Hero Lab 4.2c is now out

 

Attention Roleplayers, Hero Lab 4.2c is now out! This release addresses some bugs, and will be required for this month's Pathfinder update. As usual, you can download it from our website or from within Hero Lab's built-in updates mechanism.

19-Oct-2013   Army Builder 3.4c Released

 

Army Builder v3.4c is now out!

This release adds support for the upcoming Army Builder Roster Viewer for iPhone and iPad. This new, free app will provide you with multiple views of your saved rosters, including a standard print-style list, a "card view" with individual cards for each unit, a mobile view optimized for use on the iPhone, or a simple text summary, tournament summary or model list.

The Roster Viewer is going through approvals now, and if everything goes smoothly it'll be available in the App Store at the end of this week.

This Army Builder update is free for anyone with an active license, and can be downloaded through the AB updates mechanism.

18-Oct-2013   The Army Builder Roster Viewer is almost here

 

Sound the drums - the Army Builder Roster Viewer for iPhone and iPad is approaching!

This new, free app provides you with multiple views of your saved rosters, including a standard print-style list, a "card view" with individual cards for each unit, a mobile view optimized for use on the iPhone, or a simple text summary, tournament summary or model list. See a sneak preview here!

Please note that this app is only a viewer for saved rosters. It does not let you create or edit rosters on your iPad or iPhone, only view those created on your desktop or laptop.

We’re excited to announce that we have submitted the Army Builder Roster Viewer to the App Store for review and, if everything goes smoothly, it will hopefully be available for download late next week. The app will be free for all users, and requires rosters to be saved with the latest version of Army Builder (v3.4c, out very soon).

The Army Builder Roster Viewer should work on any iPhone, iPad, or iPod Touch running iOS5 or higher (including all iPads, the iPhone 3GS and newer, and the third-generation iPod touch and newer). Rosters can be transferred via Dropbox, allowing you to save files on your desktop or laptop computer and instantly access them on your iPhone or iPad, or by email or through iTunes.

For our Android fans: The Roster Viewer will initially only be available for Apple devices. However, we’re investigating the possibility of creating an Android app with matching functionality, so keep your eye on our monthly newsletter for further updates.

Once the app is live on the App Store, we’ll let everyone know, so watch this space!

22-Jan-2013   Realm Works Kickstarter Launches – Transform Campaign Management!

 

That’s right, our Kickstarter launched today! You can find it here: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/610004753/realm-works-streamlined-rpg-campaign-tools

From the creators of Hero Lab, Realm Works takes campaign management for RPGs to the next level, making it faster and easier to prepare for games, and greatly enhancing the actual game experience. GMs can create, manage, and share their world using a single tool, rather than trying to cobble things together with multiple, disconnected applications.

We're excited about this Kickstarter, as it will help us make Realm Works even more awesome than we're already planning! We have an array of rewards to offer backers, including the ability to get pre-release access to Realm Works, exclusive perks, and a whole lot more. We've also included some special options exclusively for Pathfinder players, so be sure to check those out!

For those of you who've been anxiously awaiting a peek at what Realm Works will offer, we encourage you to watch the Kickstarter video. We provide a glimpse of many key features in the video. So take a look at what's in store in just a few months’ time!

As we mentioned in the December newsletter, the primary features that will benefit most from the Kickstarter are the cloud server and community repository components. Each of these is detailed more fully within the Kickstarter and on our website. We'll also leverage your support to further refine the overall user experience and enhance the core Realm Works feature set. Check out the kickstarter page and video for more details!

If we exceed our funding goal, we have stretch goals that we’d love to deliver early. These include advanced functionality for GMs and players, plus some great new setting and adventure content from well-known creators, who are ready to take advantage of Realm Works’ time-saving capabilities.

Your support is instrumental in making this a successful Kickstarter and allowing us to deliver as much functionality as possible in the initial release. So please check out the project and spread the word to everyone you know. Thanks in advance for your support!

  • Custom output has been enabled for Pathfinder, the d20 System, both Mutants & Masterminds editions, and Savage Worlds! This allows users to define their own custom output types, which can then generate custom character sheets. See the manual for details.

  • When printing your hero or generating a statblock, you can now choose to output every hero in the portfolio, allowing you to output multiple characters at once.

  • New scrollable tabs allow Hero Lab to look great on smaller screens, for example on the Class tab in Pathfinder.

  • Third-Party Updates allow easier management of updates created by independent authors for Hero Lab game systems.

  • Hero Lab has a new installer, which complies with new program requirements in Windows 7. This means it no longer requires administrator rights to run if installed in certain locations.

And more! Check out the release notes in the Hero Lab 3.7 readme file for details. Hero Lab 3.7 is a free update for all previous users of Hero Lab.

We'd also like to announce our "Powered by Hero Lab" program today. If you're a publisher or fan who wants to use Hero Lab in conjunction with publishing your own content, you need to check this out! You can read all about "Powered by Hero Lab" here:
