Sixth World Companion, Hack & Slash …

I currently stopped devloping Genesis, in favor of a new SR6 character generation application. There are several reasons that lead to this decision but they are not the point of this posting. I have given some thought if I should provide at least minimal support (e.g. new metatypes, new qualities) from more recent books like […]

A word on Log4J

Some days before Christmas, a security problem was found in the widely used Java Library LOG4J. In short: If an attacker was able to bring an application to log a specific text content (an URL), it could lead to remote code execution. This is specifically a problem for all online services, which deal with a […]

A minor bug fix update for the starter application has been released. It contains small improvements, e.g. for scrolling in licensed text descriptions and updates external dependencies to close theoretical security vulnarabilities. Patreon changes Some of you might know, that we have a Patreon presence. We made some changes there recently. The basic idea is […]

Versions 5.1.3 and 5.1.4 broken for SR6

My recent change in how gear is saved in the character was only partial successful. It achieved its goal to save gear and accessories flat, instead of hierarchical, but failed in providing a backward compatible way of reading the equipment. As a consequence, viewing and printing the character misses inventory encapsulation. Unfortunately I am inmidst […]

Genesis 5.1.2

I have been slow to work on bug reports lately – my apologies. I am currently messing around with the basic architecture, which left less time for fixing bugs. Anyway, a few bugs for Shadowrun 6 have been resolved in the recent version (and 91 are still open) [SR6-42] – Feature: Customize print colors [SR6-61] […]

My special thanks go to Carsten Cimala for creating a lot of issues in our issue tracker and still manage to keep me motivated. Anyway, here are […]

Shadowrun 6 / Skills

While I am working on it, I thought I could write some thoughts about how we present different aspects of a Shadowrun 6 character within the application or in the PDF character sheet. We start with skills. In SR6 normal skills, knowledge skills and languages are treated slightly differently, so every type gets an own […]

Genesis 4.1 – early alpha

Genesis 4.1 takes a lot longer since the efforts to rewrite large parts of the user interface. I came a long way and all four RPGs are supported now (3 if your application language is not german), though not finished. Still, I need help finding all the places where there are still errors or where […]
