Chummer Build 455 Available

Build 455

  • fixed an issue where the Select Weapon Accessory window would display items from all sourcebooks instead of only the ones selected in the Options window
  • added an optional rule to enable the breaking of Skill Groups while in Create Mode
  • added support for purchasing Cyberware Suites in Career Mode (see below)

Cyberware Suites in Career Mode
Cyberware Suites can now be purchased for a character while in Career Mode. However, please note that it is not possible to undo the Nuyen Expense for the Cyberware Suite as it is a collection of multiple pieces of Cyberware. If you're uncertain about a Cyberware Suite, please save your character before adding one to them in Career Mode.

Chummer Build 453 Available

Build 453

  • added support for linking to PDF files (see below)
  • fixed an issue where the More Lethal Gameplay optional rule was not applying its bonus to Weapons loaded with Ammo that replaces the Weapon's DV, such as Stick-N-Shock Ammo
  • fixed an issue where undoing a Karma Expense for a Focus would not remove the appropriate Focus from the list of Bondable Foci
  • Sideways Genetic Infusion (Bioware) now affects Combat Active Skills
  • added an option to control whether or not times need to be entered when creating a new Expense (they are still shown in the list to provide proper sorting)
  • Expenses no longer show the seconds of the time since they are not relevant

PDF Support
PDF support has been tested with both Adobe Reader and Foxit Reader. Clicking on a sourcebook field (such as SR4 324) will open the linked PDF to the appropriate page. PDF links can be configured in the Options window. There are a few things to note with each application in terms of behaviour. With Adobe Reader, a new instance of the application is opened each time you click on a PDF link in Chummer. If you have the SR4 book open already then click on another SR4 link, a new copy of Adobe Reader is opened to the appropriate page, meaning you will have multiple copies of the SR4 book open at the same time. With Foxit Reader, if you already have the SR4 book open and click on an SR4 link, Foxit Reader will gain focus but will not jump to the appropriate page. Foxit Reader will only jump to the appropriate page if you do not already have a copy of that PDF open. Unfortunately these are not things I can control; they are how these reader applications have been setup to behave.

  • added Restore Defaults buttons to the BP Cost and Karma Cost tabs in the Options window to restore the default values

  • added support for relative file paths to Contacts and Spirits (see below)
  • changed how the total values of Cyberware is calculated in an attempt to avoid crashes on non-Windows computers using Wine

  • marking a Nuyen Expense as being a Refund now records the Refund correctly and no longer counts towards the character's Career Nuyen total

Relative File Paths for Contacts and Spirits
Contacts and Spirits now support relative file paths for improved portability between computers. Chummer first looks for the exact file name that was linked. If it cannot be found, it falls back to using the relative path that was stored when the save file was linked to it. This will only work with save files that are linked in this and later versions of the application. In order to get this behaviour with previous save files, you will need to remove the link and re-link the save file to the Contact or Spirit.
