  Ed's Exalted Toolkit
Bugs Found in Beta 5
 

Beta 5 has been very busy for me.  Here are the changes.

 

Beta 5 Patch 005
September 3rd, 2003

Report Fix and Charm Tree Performance mod

A bug in the building of the combo reports caused the last combo in the list to be left out. After further testing, this bug was found in all of the multi-item reports. For example, if you had ten charms, only the first nine would be listed. This bug, among others has been corrected in this patch.
Patch Details

Files Modified:
All Character Toolkits
All Character Reports
ExPrint.mdb
exDbPrint.dll
exPointT.dll

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Character Toolkits
Combos Report - Combos are not always printed

(All Multi Entry Reports: Artifacts, Charms, Companions, Diary and Spells)

The first time you print (or preview) a report all of the above reports list all entries. But on all subsequent prints (or previews) the last entry does not appear. For Example, if you are printing two combos, only the first will list. With ten charms, only nine and so on. After re-booting the same cycle would occur.

Fix
Corrected error by moving the opening of the print connection object back into the print data insert routine.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Character Toolkits
Combos Report - Charm list has not commas


Fix
Add commas to the combo's list of charms.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
All Character Reports
Character Name Updated to 100 characters in size


Because of the large size of Abyssal Titles, the character name needed to be increased in size in the Print Database. If a Abyssal had a name over 50 characters in length, it would generate a error and cause a blank report to print.

Fix
Increased size of character name field in print database. Updated all character reports to use new field size.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Solar, DBlood, Lunar, Abyssal Toolkits
Charm Tree Performance update


Previously the charm tree was refreshed whenever the charm tab was selected. To enhance performance, the refresh will only occur after the caste, abilities, attributes or essence rating are changed. Lunar ability changes will not refresh the charms.

Enhancement

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Character Toolkits
Specialty Favored/Caste XP cost is now implimented


The Specialty Favored/Caste template value will now use the value provided in the xp point template.

Enhancement

Beta 5 Patch 004

Point Template Essence Load Fix
Combined patch of Beta5_001-003

Some users experienced difficulties with the install search aspect of patch Beta5_003.   This patch addresses that issue and a number of others.   Most especially the bonus point miscalculation when any Bonus Point Template was selected.

Point Template Selection causes bonus point miscalculation


When any of the bonus point templates are selected, the bonus points unspent will be increased by 2x their essence in bp cost. For example, a solar will have 29/15 bonus points.

Fix
Spelling corrected.

Import of corrupted charms causing charm treeview not to display


If a export file of charms are missing even one pre-req charm id, it will cause none of the charms to display.
