Version 4?

Postby hdrider67 » Fri Jan 11, 2008 2:28 am

I know this is probably a stupid question but will mongoose be releasing a verion 4 of the PDF or maybe a beta release of the final document? I'd like to see how the power plant and combat tweaks turned out.

Maybe a pre-release to the members who participated in the testing or pre-ordered the book?

I have a playtest that is becoming strikingly similar to a campaign! :-)

British Isles Traveller Support (BITS) will be running a whole slew of scenarios at Conception at the end of the month, exclusively using Mongoose Traveller, so access to any updates by then would be really useful.

I'm guessing the answer is no? :-)

There'll be a v3.2 (including new untested stuff) some time before the end of this week, but there's unlikely to be a v4.

Awesome. I figured you guys were too busy polishing the final product to be on the boards.

Thanks!

There will be a slight delay with v3.2 while I work out why my pdf-maker has stopped working.

Chris

Send the files to someone with a Mac, can print to pdf in the OS.

Mail to neil [at] neilcford [dot] com and I'll turn it round for you asap.

If you need any help with this, please let me know. I work with Adobe Acrobat Professional on a daily basis. I know that I am an unknown entity here (unless you happened to just purchase Sherwood by Battlefield Press), but I know I could probably turn out a file in under an hour, most likely under 10 minutes.

Thanks for the offer but NeilFord fixed it up for me.

For some reason when I print from Word to the Distiller printer it gets about 2/5 of the way through 'preparing to background print' then locks up completely. I don't know why - tried reinstalling Distiller but it doesn't seem to make any difference.

CutePDF is a good no-frills PDF maker, and it's also free! It basically installs as another print option, so instead of printing to a real printer you just tell it to print to cutepdf and it converts it for you. I find it to be a lot less twitchy than Acrobat too.
