Could you look at the Biocompatibility quality and how it works?

Sadly, they copypasted the same crap that was in Chromeflesh, so you get the not-really-clear rule of "10% reduction (same math as with Adapsin) then round down to the nearest ten.

Major thumb down for that.


and they're capped at 6
Which made it necessary for me to rearrange 2 Chars :(

Even the English version pointed out skillsofts where capped at Rating 6

Skillsoft yeah, sure
but not Hardwired Skills
it's different 'ware with different inherent Rules  ;)
Anyway, I retconned my two Chars and now everything is Ok

HokaHey

The Skillwires had no Skillcap, true, but they required additional Skillsofts in the english Version and these always had a max-rating of 6.
So, you could, in theory, but in a R12 Hardware in your body, but still would have had only R6 Softs to run on them.


Hey Duelist, could you check the custom drug tables in the German version? I'm curious if the addiction thresholds and addiction ratings have been modified from the crazy levels of the English version.

The only change in the table seems to be that they switched out all Asterisks for hyphens, in the table.

Foundations are still 6/2, Enhancer +1/+1, costs and Availability modifiers are also the same.
So the Addiction ratings and Threshholds can still skyrocket quite easily, but keep in mind that the german rules for Drug consumption are a bit different. Not sure if this is good or bad in this particular case, only ever bothered with Cram.

On pg. 122, the Bio-Weapons table has formatting errors with Stingers and Tusks. It shows what appears to be acquisition data (essence, availability, and cost) in the combat data table. I'm guessing those were never supposed to be there.

Wait, you mean Tusks aren't supposed to have a four meter reach and inflict 10,000 damage per bite?

:)

For the record, the concept of money-chomping cyber is probably the most terrifying thing for many a player. :D

Any word on when the Chrome Flesh errata will be available?

Or is there another source for getting the cost and specs on the SR5 Encephalon?

Is this still accurate, despite not being updated in over six months? I wouldn't hold your breath.

Another six months, and we're looking two years back for the last proper errata release noted on Crit Glitch .

That's 'ouch', eh?

Nephritic Screen states that it adds "its Rating as a dice pool bonus to Toxin Resistance or Disease Resistance tests". Do you have to choose whether the nephritic screen adds to Toxin or Disease at the time of purchase, or should that read "Toxin Resistance and Disease Resistance tests"?

I'd say that is a classical including "or" since you usually don't roll combined disease and toxin tests  ;)

Absolutely, Jack_Spade. We've ruled it as applying to both, but I'd prefer it get clarified (at some point).

The cyber-snob quality requires that the character start out with at least one Essence point's worth of betaware-grade 'ware.  However, characters are limited to used/omegaware, standard, and alphaware at character creation.  Prime runner play and the restricted gear quality don't change this - they only raise availability limits.  So, it is such a snooty quality that you can't even take it...?

Its a case for Errata .
Cybersnob's supposed to crave Alphaware at least ;)
(I'm quite disappointed at Pegasus because that slipped by the German books too)

Naaah ;)
Its a bit more difficult to find a suitable or funny Dance in English, so on foreign Forums I more often Hough or HeyaHeyaHej than do Matrix Dances.
And I'm not really depressed because I know the Truth behind it. :)
