Dark Heresy Digital Character Sheet 2nd Edition version 1.4.4 released

IMPORTANT: Please do a local backup of your characters before updating to the new version. There will be a new build up later today which fixes the import of backup characters.

We should really start to shorten our app title 🙂

Today, we have something very special! This minor update contains a brand new version of the framework we use to code the whole app. With this new version, we were able to increase the app’s performance quite a bit! Especially on older (<4.4) Android devices, the app should now run a lot smoother. This is kind of an experimental release, so if you have any problems with the new version, please report back to us immediately.

Changes in this 1.4.4:

  • upgraded app to new framework version
  • improved performance on all devices
  • improved auto updater (now much faster and more reliable)
  • fixed bugs in psychic powers search
  • fixed bugs in skill search

The patch will be available as always later today on the Google play store, and in a few days on the Apple App Store. If you are using the auto updater, you won’t get the performance boost, so please update your app from your app store as soon as it is available.

    Is there a solution to the loss of a character? I had no backup and my phone installs the updates automatically. I have seen that there was an update, but it was after the fact and now the character is gone.

    As a secondary question: Would it be able for you to change the PDF generation in such a way that the skill list has the relevant attribute in brackets next to the skill name, as is the case in the official fillable pdf?

      Unfortunately, if you haven’t made any backup, I’m afraid there is nothing we can do from our side. We were also surprised to find out that on certain android devices, the new update deletes the local app storage. This is something we absolutely try to avoid at any time, but once the update was out, we could not revert back to the older version because google would not let us… We will introduce an autosave feature with the next update, that automatically generates local file backups on each character save action.

      Regarding your other question: This seems to be a bug 🙂 Thanks for the report. The attributes are in the first edition app, but somehow they are missing here. Will be fixed with the next update.
