2.046.xx4
CURRENT LIVE BUILD

Updated: 2020 - 09/21

HOTFIX - .xx4
Two bugs with the diceroller. If you had no open games you couldn't change pages and you couldn't change a dice set's name on mobile. Both are fixed with the newest build, which ends with a 4.
HOTFIX - .xx3
We identified a bug that allowed users to inadvertently create passcodes of length 1 or 2, which then makes it impossible to sign in if you don't turn on the "Remember Me" option. Affected users can request a new passcode to successfully sign in. A new build is going live now and should have a 3 at the end of the version number.
SERVER-SIDE FIX
The app would permanently lock up when updating the visuals of a character token or moving it in the tray while on the token page. Downloading maps and tokens on mobile would fail. Recentering a map would sometimes make it display incorrectly on another device. All issues are now resolved.
HOTFIX - .xx1/.xx2
This build went live with a bug that would make the app crash when viewing the tutorial for map-making. This primarily affected new users. A new build is going live now and should have a "1" at the end of the version number or a "2" for iOS.
UPDATES
    NEW FEATURES
  • Dice sets have been added. You can find the icon in the right bar. Rolling a token's dice set will display the token's roll in a game's chat.
  • Prebuilt maps have been added. You can choose to start from one of these templates when you create a new map. More templates coming soon!

  • DOWNLOADABLE MAPS
  • You can now download maps on mobile! You will receive an email with a link you can download.
  • Downloading a map on desktop now opens a 'save as' menu and opens the containing folder once the file is saved rather saving to the desktop and opening the file itself.
  • A transparent background option has been added to downloadable maps.
  • Map square size has been changed from 72 pixels to 70 pixels to help with lining up with the grid of other online services.

  • GENERAL
  • Loading screens during games should happen much less often.
  • While in an active game, you can visit other pages and go back to the game directly instead of the game room by tapping the game room icon in the right bar.
  • Directions for how to use the Runic Lock are much more prominently displayed.
  • If you join a game you're invited to, the host is added to your common friends list.
  • When in a map or game, you could previously only move a token if you had a token page selected. Now, tokens are moveable on any page, as long as you don't have a tile or map tool selected.
  • Added a tile filter for Traps and New.

BUGS IN THIS BUILD
  • If you roll dice with a token with a number after its name, such as 02, 03, etc. the number is omitted in Chat.

2.045

UPDATES
    General bug fixes and changes to facilitate upcoming features.

BUGS IN THIS BUILD
  • The app won't load on extreme widescreen aspect ratios.
  • The shadows weren't loading for some individual tiles.
BUGS FIXED FROM PREVIOUS BUILDS
  • Game tiles don't display if someone moves a token while you're loading a game for the first time.
  • If you leave a game without fog of war and reenter it, you will see the fog of war overlay.
  • If you delete a character token it is updated in the bottom bar until you reload the token page.
 
Testing Fog of War
CURRENT DEVELOPMENT
We could use your help! There have been some issues discovered rendering Realistic Fog of War in games on some devices.

For those having issues, the fog of war reveals nothing. For DMs (or those hosting the game) this means that everything is covered in a solid gray overlay. For players, this means they just get a black map. Not blank, just black!

You can check your system by turning on Realistic Fog of War in Options > Map Functionality then create a new game with Fog of War or opening an existing game with Fog of War. If it works, you should see open circles around the center of the map and Player Characters on the map. If it does not, well, you won't!

If you have issues, you can switch back to the non-realistic Fog of War in Options > Map Functionality. Toggling between the two will not hurt your map or game in any way. We would also appreciate you contacting us at us@trapstreetstudios.com with a screenshot and the type of device you are experiencing the issue on.

If you're not having issues, well... enjoy!

  • Pop-up messages are in the middle of the the screen rather in the bottom bar.
  • Pages with subpages (such as PC tokens or Options) have had the right and left arrows changed to look more clickable.

  • Zooming or getting a pop-up message should no longer reset the bottom bar.
  • Most loading screen messages (cool though they were!) are now replaced with handy tips!

  • DESKTOP ONLY
  • You can now download your character token artwork as a transparent-background PNG file. The option is found in the token creator.

  • ...and some general bug fixes.

BUGS IN THIS BUILD
BUGS FIXED FROM PREVIOUS BUILDS

  • compass epic ring runic epic ring

  • 2x2 character tokens have been added. Find this option when creating a PC, NPC, or FOE token.
  • A first iteration of Fog of War has been added. It's called Encroaching Darkness and only reveals the area around the player's characters. You can set the fog of war radius and whether or not they can see what their allies can see. Find this when setting up a game to host.
  • You can now download a map with no grid lines (other than what's embedded in certain tiles).
  • Added a note to map center, mentioning that it is indeed the center of the map and it's where players will start.

TILE UPDATE - 5/4/2020

  • You should now be able to move object tiles under stone arch. Further, it is now in the middle of the square and has updated artwork to look more dimensional. Stone Arches placed before this will be unaffected by these changes. To remove them, you must use the delete tile tool.
  • Added options for chairs to the table tilesets. (There's still tables with no chairs as well.) Also updated the color for both wooden tables and wooden chair to show up better on wooden floor.
  • All edge walls darkened to show up better against their analagous floors. If you don't see the "door" variants of the edge walls update, try resetting your app on the title or options page.
  • Cart made darker, specifically to show up better against Cart Path.
  • Towertop is bigger. Now maybe it should feel like an actual top of a tower.
  • Barrel has more options with multiple barrels per square.
  • Spiral Staircase was lightened to give it more depth and dimensionality.
  • Changed thumbnail on Runes to a rune I liked better.
  • Added multiple new tiles to drawbridge with rounded ends. This makes it a bit more complicated to use, but now you can make more than a flat-ended drawbridge.
  • Flags used to be only red. Now they come in various additional colors - yellow, green, blue, purple, pink, brown, white, and black.
  • Pit was added. It's a hole in the ground and is a first introduction to elevations.
  • Dungeon Vent was added. What comes forth from that ominous tile? Noxious gas, spurts of flame? Ancient spears?
  • Rowboat was added.

2.042

UPDATES
  • When entering a map, you should go directly into the map rather than the map options. You can delete the map or enter map options from the map room.
  • There's now an exit button on the sign in screen (except for iOS users).
  • Players can now add more than one token to a game. This is perfect if they're running more than one PC, create a duplicate of themselves, have a summoned creature or familiar, or any other countless situations. Before another token is added, it will let them know how many tokens they currently have in the game.
  • Reduced zoom options to 3 levels. 100%, 50%, 25%. This is down from 5 (100%, 50%, 33%, 25%, 20%). The options that were removed were under utilized and this helps streamline actually getting to the zoom level you'd like.

  • And some general bug fixes (as per usual!)....

    DESKTOP ONLY
  • The right bar no longer collapses automatically.
  • You can use the mouse scroll wheel to zoom when in maps or games.
EXISTING BUGS IN THIS BUILD
  • Inconsistencies on downloaded maps.
  • IOS ONLY - The app sometimes locks up when you tap on the map with no token or tile selected.
BUGS FIXED FROM PREVIOUS BUILDS
  • Overview zoom was not set up for widescreen.
  • Shadows on individual items are not loading properly in games.
  • In games, if you have a token selected in the bottom bar and you delete a token, it will add the selected token to the map beneath the bottom bar. If these tokens are the same this makes it appear as if the token was not deleted.
  • Options and delete still showing on map files in the game room.
 
0.2.41

beta0.2.40

UPDATES
    When making an account you now confirm your email address. Further, if you forget your login credentials, you can enter your email address or your username.

UPDATES
  • Acknowledgements have been updated. Please verify that if you joined before the open beta that your user name is on the about us page (the calligraphy C in the right bar).
  • Incase you forget your username, you can now log in with your email address.
  • Lock and create passcode screens should now show a message about having to swipe not just click.
  • User name has been added to all welcome messages in the bottom bar on the home page. This is important if you check "REMEMBER ME" in options... it gives some context that you're logged in as who you think you are.
  • Announcements are now always open when you enter the app.
  • There's now a tutorial page for the overview map, which you get to by holding on the sextant while in a map or games.
  • Back button removed from tiles and added to the dock on the left. It is now much easier to navigate between tiles and tile filters. You no longer have to scroll all the way back or hit your device's back button.
  • Made a processing change to the way tiles are stacked which should improve performance on the back-end and possibly on the front-end.
  • Swaths now lay down 3 at a time, which should speed it up.
UPDATED TILESETS
  • Crate now has artwork with multiple crates on one square.
  • Dungeon Grate is now a little smaller.
  • Double and Single Beds now have their center points moved to interact better with walls.
  • Stone Arch is now an edge tile instead of an individual tile.

beta0.2.21

UPDATES
  • We added a "doormaker" tool for use on walls. All wall tiles should be updated to have "door" alterative art.
  • Tilesets have been reordered and should be easier to navigate now.
  • If the right bar is open, and you click on most things on a page, the right bar will close. It will not close on most things on a map or game as you might want to keep it open to swap between tiles and tokens.
  • Your device should no longer timeout when the app is idle, like when you stop using the map to do some well-placed roleplaying.
  • Improved communication with the server, so token updates in games should be faster and bug free. *crosses fingers*
  • You can now edit your map in games and the players should see the updates.
  • Some overall tweaking of the tutorial pages.
  • Communications with the server are now validated. This means better security, but could also mean some bad handshakes. Let us know if the app locks itself (using the lock page) randomly.
  • App properly retries to connect when losing communication with the server. This could be server down, or a bad internet connection.
  • The acknowldgements page should include every account name made before the app went to open beta. If you don't see yours or would like it changed, let us know!

EXISTING BUGS IN THIS BUILD
BUGS FIXED FROM PREVIOUS BUILDS
  • Holding down on the overview map in a GAME was not changing the coordinates.
  • Deleted tokens may not be removed from map or game until a reload.
  • When email is taken, username becomes reserved. When username is taken, email becomes reserved. (Reservations shouldn't happen until after validation?)
  • User name reservations last forever.
  • Sometimes when loading a large map on a new device, it stalls on pulling tiles from the server. Force closing the app and reloading the map seems to resolve this.
  • Centering the map in game mode, did not take you back to 0/0.
  • When joining a game, you do not always come in at 0/0 with a zoom of 1 the first time.
  • Large maps sometimes "lose" tiles until they're moved off screen and back on.

beta0.2.4

UPDATES
This was a hotfix to correct an issue with the map tools page being inoperable. Notes from 0.2.1 below.

The database and files are now located on a more powerful server, which officially takes us into beta. We've vetted the transition, but there's always some nook or cranny that we missed, so let us know if the app starts acting weird or crashes and let us know what you were doing when said weirdness or crashing happened.

Apparently my efficiency updates in the last build worked really good on a fast machine (desktop) and not so great on weaker devices (mobile). So now the app monitors framerate and adjust effeciencies settings to optimize them for a smooth experience.

Maps and games now "batch" load data to the local database, meaning the first time you load a map or game, it should be significantly faster. Normal maps you probably won't notice much of a difference, but this was a HUGE deal on large maps.

I tweaked the map tutorial to better explain map tools. Also, recenter map is now in the map tools. There's a new "stairs" tile category, and I moved recenter map into the map tools. I also made both the round and rectangular tables smaller.

alpha0.1.34

UPDATES
Map momentum was reduced slightly and a background was added to rulers in case they can't keep up when panning map. Other glitches resolved. You should be able to set "remember me" in options to skip the title and lock screens when having logged into a device previously.

  • When switching to tokens on the map, sometimes they don't go full opacity.
  • When you leave the map, normally tapping on the map room button will take you directly back to it. However, if you visit the map room a second time and enter the same map, it will eliminate this luxury.
  • If you leave the map and then click to center or go to a specific area on mega zoom before moving the map at all, it will fail the first time.

  • iOS specific
  • Full screen should work correctly on iOS now.
  • Many text glitches should be resolved.
 
alpha0.1.30


UPDATES
Huge improvement - though it was simple to implement - maps should load around 30x faster. This includes the first time you load a map, when you zoom in or out, when you recenter it, and when you go to a specific spot in mega zoom.

There's now an option in the config to make the app "remember you" meaning it will bypass the tiel and lock pages if you were the last user on that device. We also made the lock options the first on the config page. Announcements are more dynamic, and will eventually have a link to be able to rate the app on the app stores. Further, multiple tokens of the same type should automatically number 1, 2, 3, 4.. etc.

On the list of minor updates, the word 'tap' should now appropriately read as 'click' on the desktop build, we added a feedback button to the announcements page, and made new announcements come from the server and be build specific.

iOS should be full resolution and full screen now. Further, the fonts should be correctly spaced on iOS. The desktop build now includes widescreen background pages for many of the screens.

alpha0.1.24 (0.1.27/0.1.28 on iOS)

UPDATES
This was a very map and tile-centric update. Map effeciency was updated. A center map widget was added. Shadows were added to many individual tiles as well as 'on fire' artwork to applicable tiles like campfire, and hearth. Map tile sorting brought to bottom bar in map. Map and game made to "run in the background" for faster load times after the initial load.

You can also now download low-res .jpgs of your maps, but for now this only works on the desktop build. Each square is 1 inch at 72dpi.

alpha0.1.23

UPDATES
Game mode and chat have been added. These are major features and need focused testing.

Added diagonal and pathbreaker map tools, as well as putting map tools in a persistant layout versus the dial that was in the tile list before.

Map tiles don't worry about loading an image before moveing onto the stage. This means you will sometimes see blank tiles, but you will never get a slowdown while scrolling the map.

Mega-zoom has been added, which allows you to see the full map in a simplified format. Tap and hold on the zoom sextant. Some tiles have not been loaded so you'll see question marks.

alpha0.1.22b

UPDATES
Minor bug fixes from the previous build. Contains the same version number. Most notable, deleting a token off the map won't result in a the app locking up, and a few position bugs *hopefully* worked out for wider devices.
 
alpha0.1.22

UPDATES
In this build, there were a number of bug fixes. Maps should be more reliable now. Game connectivity is hooked up and ready to try out! Map effeciency has not yet been resolved.
 
alpha0.1.21

UPDATES
This is a huge release, with a lot of bug smoothed out, as well as features added. The most important aspect is cloud connectivity, however. Your maps, tokens, and other assets should now all be syncing to the server for use on other devices.
 
alpha0.1.20

UPDATES
The timeout bugs should be greatly minimized and handled in most cases. Added other functionality. Swapped color and icon in tokens. Tile identification in bottom bar. Only places tiles that have been loaded. Loads individual tiles rather than showing a loading screen. A "did you forget to save your token" warning when navigating away from an unsaved token in the right bar.
 
alpha0.1.19

UPDATES
This build was to test some nasty bugs that were hopefully fixed, namely with tokens and the bottom bar's alignment on wide aspect ratio devices.
 
alpha0.1.18

UPDATES
Object tiles should rotate in a more intuitive manner. Area tiles should stack in a more intuitive manner. Tweaked a number of tutorials. Check them out by hitting the QUESTION MARK in the right bar. Can save tiles to your favorites list. A tile's tags are now shown on tilesets page. Added a Maze Category to maps. Hitting back on the title page or the home page now should take you back to your desktop. Otherwise, it just goes back within the app.
 
alpha0.1.17

UPDATES
Not a whole lot different than 0.1.16, but tweaked some bugs. Added unique description for tiles (though not all tiles have descriptions yet), fixed the tile scroll issue after you filter (it was actually there before a filter too), and added a 'reset app' button in the options menu.
 
alpha0.1.16

UPDATES
This build brings momentum to maps, the tilesets page, and fixes a whole ton of bugs. DELETE PREVIOUS VERSIONS BEFORE INSTALLING. (You won't always have to do this.)
 
alpha0.1.15

UPDATES
The first alpha build. Can request forgotten passcode. Can make account, maps, tokens. Can file beta report. Cannot use multiple devices; cannot make or host games. Cannot filter tiles. Glitch with moving tiles down the stack. Glitch with unlocking app - sometimes freezes on lock screen.
