[SR] Hero Lab
« on: (08:05:13/08-13-15) »
Update from Lone Wolf re new SR packages coming out for Her Lab:

Quote
From additional gear to new augmentations, new options from Shadowrun books can help Shadowrunners survive their missions in the Sixth World. Since returning from Gen Con, our data file authoring team is hard at work finishing up the work necessary to make Data Trails and Chrome Flesh ready for Hero Lab!
Data Trails is the must-have sourcebook for the Matrix, providing a ton of new possibilities for decker and technomancer characters, such as programs, gear, qualities, AI characters, and more. If your street samurai prefers cyberware, then Chrome Flesh is for you! This supplement includes dozens of new alterations, including bioware, nanotech, geneware, and more.



We know many Shadowrun fans are anxiously awaiting these new add-ons, and we’re hard at work preparing it for your games. If all goes according to plan, Data Trails should be available at the end of August, and Chrome Flesh will release at the end of September.

I'm more anxiously awaiting them fixing the Infected from Run Faster than I am anything else. Last I looked, that still didn't work right....

I've seen several questions posted about the timeline on Run Faster (correcting errors and finishing the options), but no replies as of yet

Good to see some traction from the Hero Labs front.
Power corrupts.
Absolute power is kinda neat.

From what I saw posted, one guy who normally works on the Hero Lab Pathfinder end of things took a long vacation, forcing the Shadowrun side of things to languish a bit, as there was a very large Pathfinder project in the works (Pathfinder Unchained?). That guy is back from vacation, and I think the one who works on Shadowrun (Mathias?) is going back to those data sets, so we should be seeing Run Faster finished, as well as these new data sets, hopefully this year.

Since we're now in the "end" of August officially...any refinement on the next update (Data Trails)?

I would expect "end" to mean by the 31st...though quite happy to be wrong. ;)

Data Trails and Chrome Flesh Coming Soon for Shadowrun 5th Edition
Earlier this month, we announced that our data file authoring team was back from Gen Con and working on Data Trails and Chrome Flesh for Shadowrun 5th Edition!

Data Trails is the must-have sourcebook for the Matrix, providing a ton of new possibilities for decker and technomancer characters, such as programs, gear, qualities, AI characters, and more. If your street samurai prefers cyberware, then Chrome Flesh is for you! This supplement includes dozens of new alterations, including bioware, nanotech, geneware, and more.

We know many Shadowrun fans are anxiously awaiting these new add-ons, and we’re happy to announce the Data Trails should be available next week. If all goes according to plan, Chrome Flesh will follow around the end of September.

To be notified when Data Trails and Chrome Flesh are released, be sure to “like” Hero Lab on Facebook, follow @lonewolfdevel on Twitter, or follow Lone Wolf Development on Google+.

No mention of fixing the broken Infected implementation in Hero Lab. Guess it's time for another bug/email conversation....

Wouldn't hurt, but, in fairness, they haven't made any mention as to the updates coming with the next release other than the new source books.

I'm sure there are all sorts of oddities that are non trivial to sort out. The wrong initiative values when running in hot/cold sim spring to mind. But no great deal for me, as I run an excel spreadsheet to handle matrix, as it is more complicated than Hero Lab will handle (eg skills having different attributes depending on which action is being performed).
