[SR5] Core Rulebook "Master Index Edition"
« on: (06:30:05/09-02-16) »
I've mentioned before that a new release of the core rulebook with a new index (including the 6 core supplements) has been in the works. Well, looks like it will hitting stores soon and some pre-release copies will be in the CGL booth at PAX West this weekend. From Tumblr:

Beyond demos you can check out the latest and greatest books! And for those with an eagle eye, you might have spotted the Master Index Edition of SR5 in the photo above! This latest reprint is just now coming available. We’re pre-releasing the print book at Pax West. Then, once the book has become available to all retailers (in the next couple of weeks), the PDF will be made available for free to anyone that previously purchased SR5!

Any chance of just the new index being available separate from the core reprint?

I have asked the question, but don't have any to report yet. The core rulebook PDF will be updated to include the new index, but I'm not sure if it will be released as a separate document. I can't imagine why it wouldn't be, but can confirm either way.

How will the pdf be made available to anyone that purchased SR5?  I purchased my physical copy (1st printing) the month after it was released, and I purchased it from a FLGS, which I no longer have the receipt for...

I assume he meant PDF will be updated, for those who purchased it at a site like Drive Thru etc...

Just got a notice on DriveThru that the updated version was available.  However, when I downloaded the update, it seems the index is limited to the core rulebook only; I thought page cites for supplements were to be included in the index as well?  Also, going to "My Library" for the rulebook shows two instances of "CAT27000_Shadowrun_5.pdf", and they both appear to be the same document.  Is there some sort of glitch?

In any event, I would suggest that the filenames include some sort of date, so we can tell which particular version we're downloading.

Battlecorps doesn't send out updated links for pdf's.  Is there any option to get new index without buying new core PDF?

So, I am on my third download of an "updated" version of the Core Rulebook from DTRPG in 3 days, the most recent one even labeled "Master Index Edition" and, unless it is in invisible ink or cleverly hidden somewhere in the book, I still have not seen anything resembling a Master Index. It does get frustrating to waste time downloading an "updated product" thinking you get something updated and it isn't. Anybody have any idea what's going on?

CGL SOP is what's going on...

AJ, any word from TPTB on a PDF download of just the Master Index for those who bought dead trees?

Just so you know, I just downloaded the PDF from DriveThruRPG and it now includes the master index. My version of the file is dated "2016-10-05 16:50:53".

Thanks for the heads up I hadn't had time to check today. Looks pretty good. I expect it to be pretty useful!

I expect so, but have pinged Jason on that to confirm.
