Today is the last day that passwords will be given out for Beta4.
The past three weeks have gone well with testing and feedback on the programs.
Thanks again for your help.
Work on Beta5 has already begun.
Some of the improvements to look forward to are an easier to use toolbar, cleaner looking gui and a quick bar for easy access to all of the toolkits.
Character templates will be made for each of the character toolkits.
A storyteller toolkit for weapon entry is also in the works.

Patch Beta4_001 is now ready!
Customizable Sounds and Backgrounds (i.e. Bells and Whistles)
In addition to providing fixes to a number of minor bugs, this patch has a major usability update with the addition of sound events (thanks Brad!).
Button clicks, dot selection, charm picks, etc.
These all have sounds associated with them now.
And if you don't like the sound, you can replace the default with your own wav file!
The background graphics are no longer embedded into the character toolkits.
You can now use your own bmp and jpg graphics as the backgrounds.
You can download this update from the Patches page.
