Looking for testers for version 6.1
A number of people have posted of issues with the Eclipse Caste's other charms feature, so a fix has been made to address this.
In addition, the performance of the other charms popup has be improved by a redesign of its loading logic.
These changes were orignially planned to be a part of version 7, but due to life getting in the way, work on the alchemicals has been stalled.
So if you would be interested in lending a hand with testing this new full install, then please send me an email saying so.

Download updated with Immanent Solar Glory Multi Pick
In the Solar Toolkit, the Immanent Solar Glory charm is missing the multi pick type setting for Essence Rating.
This causes the charm to not display the popup to select multiple picks.
A new version of the installer has been uploaded with the updated charms.
Or you can go into the Charm toolkit and set the Multi Pick Type charm value on the Det2 tab to "Essence Rating".
And if you see any more problems, please post on the forums with the issues.
Will address them as quickly as possible or add to the list for a patch.

Dawn Solution & Astrology Charms complete
The last major parts of this release are now complete.
All of the Dawn Solution changes have been integrated from the PDF.
The dawn & dusk keywords as well as the virtue and willpower changes have been added to all of the toolkits.
Astrology Charms are now available in the Sidereal Toolkit with new reports to allow their printing.
This was the last major addition to the toolkits for version 6.
Have also added in the Alchemical exalt type and the ability to add in their charms in preparation for version 7.
And Sidereal Allegiances can be modified in the House Toolkit.
Should be another week or so of minor changes and a final review before version 6 is live.

Infernal Tookit thru first round of testing
The Infernal Toolkit is looking good and appears to be stable.
Have decided to leave out akuma support due to the vagueness of the xp rules for them.
Rather not delay the release because of foreseen frustration that I expect they would bring me.
Completed the House Toolkit, so now you will be able to add/update Dragon-Blooded Houses, Abyssal Leiges and Infernal Yozi.
The surprise enhancement work for the release is support for Fair Folk charms.
So now you will be able to use the charm toolkit to add in their charms.
Eclipse, Moonshadow, Fiends and Lunar can select them from the Charm2 popup.
The last bit of work for this release is to clean up the icon images for the Charm2 popup in all of the character toolkits.
Will also implement the new character creation rules (2.1) that appeared last week on the Ink Monkeys.

Database restored, Infernal Toolkit in testing
Restored all the old forum posts up to april of this year.
Best that could be done.
And did the full backup today, so should be in good shape now for the next time this occurs (not if).
As to the Infernal Toolkit, all of the base logic is done.
Made up a half dozen standard character sheets today and did some install tests on a win7 system.
The Green Sun Princes should be in good shape, but the Akuma will require a fair amount of work to get done.
Akuma will be up next and then a House toolkit to allow changing of dragon blooded houses, abyssal lieges and infernal yozas.

Site Back Up - Database Mostly Restored
Got the database back to working order were you can log in and download the toolkits.
The forums are still missing data though, so will need to work on restoring the posts tomorrow.
If you registered after April 3rd, 2010, you will need to re-register.
Sorry for the trouble.
Will back up the sites database move often now, I promise.
Tired of having to waste hours of my time rebuilding things.
So please go ahead and register and download your copy of the toolkits.

Site Down - Database blown away: Part 2
Making progress now, but my backup was not compatible so had to rebuild from my local.
Been a while since I've scripted out database structures so was a good refresher.
Should have taken a more recent backup, but what can I say, was lazy and forgot!
Now I pay the price for not being paranoid.
Have restored all of the site user tables and hope to have the site up soon.
In the process though, had to create the database several times.
This moved the server location around so will need a new connection string from the host.
Hoping to get this soon.
BTW, the Infernal Toolkit parts for the Green Sun Princes is almost done.
The last thing to do is the character sheet and then can start some testing with my group.

Site Down - Database blown away
Well, once again my site host has decided to move my database to another server.
But this time, they forgot to move the database!
They just created a empty shell with no tables or store procedures.
Here is the latest note from the wonderful folks at webhost4life:
Unfortunately, its not possible to restore the database because of legacy database servers are already shutdown. Hence, please restore the database from your local backup.
Luckily, I do have a backup, but they convienently forgot to give the necessary permissions to restore a database (browse to the backup file).
And since they move at a snails pace, it will probably be a day or two before they will grant me the necessary permissions.
Hopefully this will be resolved shortly.

Multi Picks Done, starting Infernals
With the multi pick logic for the charms applied to all of the character toolkits, work can now start on the infernals.
The charm structure for infernals are what looks to be the main change, since they are based on essence and a yozi.
And of course the usual customizing of the abilities and support data will follow.
July 13th, 2010
Dragon Kings Completed
Work on the Dragon Kings Toolkit is now done.
The Dragon Kings had a number of what appeared to be small changes but ended up taking a lot of time to implement.
The main offender was the Caste Attribute Mods that change the min/max an attribute can go.
Have also made a number of fixes and enhancements to the toolkits in general to make all of our lives easier.
Please send an email if you would like to help test the Dragon Kings and can send some completed dragon king characters to use as templates.
Read Me for V6 (in progress)
Next up are the Attribute mods for characters and point templates;
i.e. support for legendary attributes.
Once these are completed then work will start on the Infernals.
June 13th, 2010
On Thursday of last week my web host moved the site and database to a new server.
Unfortunately they did not provide the new database connection string and the site was unable to connect to the database.
It took a couple days and eventually everything was corrected, but the database they moved was a older backup.
So all registrations and forum entries after the 14th of May were lost.
If you registered after May 14th, you will need to re-register for site access.
Sorry for the trouble but this is the norm for a server change.
As to version 6, the Dragon King toolkit is very close to being completed.
Will be putting up screen shots in the next week or two.

Version 6 work started
Work on the next release has been started and moving along for the past few months.
The goals of this release is the creation of the Dragon Kings and Infernos toolkits.
The Dragon Kings Toolkit has been started and is progressing as my free time permits.
While working on the updated charm tree for the DKs, notice that it was possible to modify the charm tree node color.
This had been hard coded previsiously to the yellow and violet for all exalt types.
But an update has been made to customize these colors and the icons for each of the toolkits.
These color schemes blend in better for each type of exalt.
Version 6 Charm Tree Samples:
Have also made a few minor fixes to the charm tree selection process and included the new charms from 1000 Correct Actions.
And all 1st edition toolkits, charms, spells, etc. have been removed from the Toolkits.
