We are very proud to announce Virtual Combat Cards version 1.9.0. This version includes some bug fixes and a new feature: player view. This new player view uses browser and can be accessed from other devices like tablets and smartphone. This allows player to keep track of their status and overall monster information.
The new player view is the first step in the direction we want to take VCC in. The idea is to replace the entire interface with a web based version. This will allow use of other devices like tablets as clear space on the table. This is not a short journey but hopefully we can move quickly along this path.
Virtual Combat Cards version 1.8.0 is out. This include a series of features that were releases in versions 1.7.1 and 1.7.2. We also include a new Mac Bundle to ease installation. These version brought with them the ability to save combats and the ability to import monster from the D&D Adventure Tools.
We are happy to announce the release of Virtual Combat Cards version 1.7.2. While we are releasing as a patch this does include some new feature. The main improvement is ability to load Adventure Tools exported files (the
.monster files). This means you can now bring in your custom monsters to the fray.
The VCC development team is really happy to release Virtual Combat Cards version 1.7.1. The main feature is the ability to save and load combat state. All information controlled is saved and restored, including comments, effect, and initiative, among others.
We are proud to announce the release of Virtual Combat Cards version 1.7.0. For user the most noticeable change is that you now longer have to start and end rounds explicitly. The entire logic has been streamlined. A new Next button will handle all the logic, including reminding the DM of delaying combatants. Besides this we include some minor fixes to the D&D Insider capture logic.
Version 1.7.0 is starting to become a reality, we still have some work ahead of us, but most of the big work is now behind us. This post is just a brief report on what is going on, since the last update. VCC is now approaching its third birthday, and is alive and moving forward. We hope to have a release up in some weeks, surely before the end of the year. As always people willing to test the release candidates are really welcome.
Fellow Dungeon Masters, we are happy to announce the latest release of Virtual Combat Cards version 1.6.0. This version is the first step in a large transformation we have been working on. On the surface the main new feature is the addition of drag and drop to the user interface.
New in this version:
- Drag and drop for changing health and applying effects (see #238: Drag and drop effect on Combatant);
- New Project News panel, which will check this site for news;
- Automatically check for updates.
We are proud to release a new version of Virtual Combat Cards (version 1.5.2). It includes three bug fixes and a new feature. The new feature is the ability to copy entries on your compendium. This includes monsters, traps and characters. The new version of the Firefox plugin should work with future releases of the browser. One thing detected on the last minute was a slight change on the D&DI format that rendered the capture logic unusable. This has been fixed on this version too.
Version 1.5.1 of Virtual Combat Cards has just been released, this is a patch version. We also released version 1.5.0 of the Firefox plugin. Thes two releases include some minor improvements (list of issue can be found on the release note), namely:
- You can now create and edit traps as a their own entity. This allows you to create and add your own traps to your encounter.
- Reloading monster and character will update the version already loaded.
- The Firefox plugin now works on Firefox 4.0
- Plugin now allows you to add a Icon for the Capture as a normal Firefox tool pallete icon, this means you can customized where it will appear.
We have move the site to a new server and a new version of the Drupal server. This was long overdue. We hope no serious issues arrive but please report any problems via the contact link or posting a comment here.
