Hi Everyone,

**AUGUST 8th**
Removed the download links as this releases has a couple of significant bugs**


Time for another dev release and wow is this one got some stuff in it. Before I get to that I need to stress this release is very likely to have bugs and likely some major ones. A reminder of what we've we said for years:

1)  Make backups of your campaigns and customs.
2)  Always treat each release as a stand alone release and only copy your data forward from older versions.

So on to the new stuff!

Megamek
Lots of bug fixes. We’ve tweaked Saxarba default theme to use grass as the default theme. Speaking of themes the large texture them got an overhaul from  Ahne and it looks great. We’ve also added Inclines and cliffs from TacOps.

Cliffs Non-ISO                                            Cliffs ISO mode
 

Data wise we’ve got new sprites based on the Kickstarter and lots of them are getting the royal (colourized) treatment. Greekfire has helped add Fluff text to a chunk of the 3039 units. We’ve tweaked the frequency that LAMs will appear in the RAT Generator. Ever been stuck coming up with a call sign for your pilot, well use the new Random Call Sign generator.

Did I mention Princess has learned to use arty cannons in direct fire.

Last and in one of the coolest new features ‘Damage Decals’.



MegaMekLab
Lots of bug fixes. We’ve also synchronized the mech selectors from Megamek into MegaMekLab. We’ve add two major options for mech record sheets. Quick reference tables on the mech sheets, and a record sheet that supports Table top miniature scale from Strat Ops. See attached samples.

MekHQ.
Lots of work in the back end and bug fixes. We’ve also synchronized the mech selectors from Megamek into MekHQ. We’ve added the Random Callsign generator to MekHQ and phase 1 of the Genealogy overhaul.  I’ll let Windchild add some details on that.

Also a reminder to drop into the Slack channel to meet other players and harass the devs that drop in and out. If Slack isn't your thing check out these Discords with Megamek channels - Everything BattleTech and Classic BattleTech

**FOR MAC USERS**
There isn't a Mac release and you'll have to use the Unix release. We are having issues with the Gradle packaging scripts and various security settings in MacOS.  We are working on the issue and have no ETA for a fix.

Another reminder when moving between versions:
1)   Make backups of your campaigns and customs.
2)   Always treat each release as a stand alone release and only copy your data forward from older versions.

There is a good chance you’ll have issues in MekHQ with unit name changes.  If you get errors loading your campaign as result of unit name errors please see this post.

Woohoo! Sweet!

Time to start putting together some maps using the sheer cliffs for embankments, cuttings, and the like ...

Thanks again for all of your work on these developments and fixes. And even for teaching Princess to use artillery, although I'm sure I'll come to rue that day ...
"That's Lieutenant Faceplant to you, Corporal!"

Things that I have learnt through clicking too fast on 'Move Done' on MegaMek: Double-check the CF of the building before jumping onto it, check artillery arrival times before standing in the neighbouring hex, and don't run across your own minefield.

"Hmm, I wonder if I can turn this into a MM map."

as always, thanks for the work the team puts into this


it's been a minute since i've printed anything in MML so i may be misremembering, but i accidentally sent a job to printer instead of PDF and the record sheets have an abnormally large margin, about an inch (2.54cm) to the data box from the left edge rather than 3/8" (~1cm) on the official sheets in Record Sheets: Clan Invasion. it causes the the record sheet to scale to about 66% size. that definitely gets to be dicey reading without my glasses.

is this a printer issue, settings issue, deliberate, or a bug?

Lots of changes since RS:CI

It was the first RS Book I was involved in fully and was also the first one with new code. Since then I've learned a lot and the sheets have had lots of tweaks and have been approved by CGL.

For genealogy, phase 1 was implementing proper parent-person-child tracking, improving relationship determination, and implementing proper relationship checking.

Phase 2 is more backend work to enable the creation of a simpler form of personnel for ancestors (this has been started and tested, but I'm not finalized on what the minimum product includes yet).

Phase 3 will be a basic family editor based on merely the parent-person-child relationship.

There are a few more phases after that, but I'm only solid on the next two (cause they are both currently in progress)

it appears to be the same in TRO: Golden Century. there's nothing wrong with the sheets MML is putting out - it's just they're printing with double-sized margins on my printer and PDF output that are over twice the size. it's causing the text to scale down considerably. i've attached the lupus d from TRO: GS and an Apollo 1M from .47.8 for reference. just trying to figure out if it's on my end

The Select Unit from Cache, Purchase Unit, and Add Unit are now all the same GUI and mostly the same backend, with just some minor changes based on how they work.

Just to add to this, prior each program basically had different unit selectors. The one in Megamek was much more robust and had more features (advanced search)

If you send it to the printer, it will print with whatever the margins are set to in the printer dialog.

so to confirm, it is a me problem? others are not having this issue?

it makes the big margins whether i print to pdf (adobe or microsoft), or print a physical copy so i don't know where to look to adjust settings

ok the plot thickens.

i had forgotten MML now does export to PDF naively so i tried that rather than printing to a PDF driver.

violà, it came out with the correct margins. printing is still giving me 1" margins. i tried "borderless printing" in the printer options but all that happened was that the top margin was removed with no change to scaling.

addendum: it seems the font on my native pdf exports is times new roman... obviously not the right one. is it possible to change that?

We are not allowed to include the Eurostile font in the releases due to copyright. You can change the fonts used in the configuration dialog.


But the official sheets are printed with it. As for margins I suspect it's a setting buried in the printer dialog box somewhere.

So it seems error #1222 is still kind of there for MekHQ.

I just resolved a fight with some LB-10X Field Gunners(if they are custom I did not make them) and when they finally let me click to reload them the task was still there, even after clicking Advance Day but if you save and reload it is resolved.

If you guys want it I have a save immediately after the fight I can upload.

digging around, i found a thread in stackoverflow that said print margins in java automatically default to 1". It's the only explanation i can think of as i can't find anything on my PC's end. i have no idea if that's an issue here but it's the one explanation this non-programmer came up with that replicated the issue.

So what changed, and why? It didn't used to do this when you printed or printed to pdf.
Good news is the lab boys say the symptoms of asbestos poisoning show an immediate latency of 44.6 years. So if you're thirty or over you're laughing. Worst case scenario you miss out on a few rounds of canasta, plus you've forwarded the cause of science by three centuries. I punch those numbers into my calculator, it makes a happy face.

Also, how do I increase the amount of memory Megameklab is allowed to use? It's choking on batch exporting a large number of mech files to pdf.

1. Right click Megameklab.l4j.ini
2. replace 1024 with some larger number
3. Save
4. Profit

Most likely then you have a 32 bit version of Java installed.  If it is possible I would recommend a 64 bit version instead.  The third Windows option on this page.

The second most likely possibility is it does need to be a specific number.

I've been doing multiples of 1024. I'm almost certain I should have 64 bit java, but hell, I'll try again.

I somehow got a 32 bit install of Java a while back and the same thing happened to me(any Java program with more than 1024 allocated wouldn't even run) so not sure how you would have gotten it but the described symptomology lines up.
