Default TFT Helper - beta test of app

Andrew Walters has the TFT Helper ready for beta for both iOS and Android. Link to the signup:

https://docs.google.com/forms/d/1_iT...HNi8R4C6Ysu6EU

Please keep in mind, if you download this, that it IS just in beta version. It will get better and prettier. You can help.

Note also that this will be a free app, so don't worry about whether downloading it now obligates you to buy it later!

I think you will like this. Andrew has bitten off a massive chunk of coding here, but he seems to be chewing it just fine . . .

Android 6.0.1 on a mini phone
No goblins as PC race choice.
Android Backarrow exits from the app, not the submenu.
Error note about missing Staff III for Staff IV instead of adding it in.
Unable to scroll talent list for selection of new talents.
Total IQ point cost drifts down into weapons area.
Adding a dagger makes it forget about staff as a weapon.

On a 10" Android tablet I'm able to add Staff V, but the Staff damage doesn't update.
On the adventure unable to use staff of striking at range two. (Staves are throwable, BTW.)

Where were the goblins absent?
By Backarrow are you talking about the Android back arrow? not one in the app?
Good idea on the later staff spells!
There are some font size issues that are pushing some stuff off the screen, you shouldn't have to scroll the talent lists.
Ditto when you have many spells and it overfills the T&S area

Vis-a-vis adding a dagger and losing staff, were you adding them to the same weapon slot? There are two. To add a second weapon you tap the lower part of the weapons area. Other people have run into that same problem, which means it's a bad design.

Thanks, and expect a new version tomorrow!

Staff spell shouldn't add a weapon at all. Just chose a weapon then if you have the Staff spell select that weapon as your staff. This then sets the mundane (from the weapon type) and occult (from the Staff spell level) damages for the staff. The very fine silver dagger staff ($2k is too much for a starting character, sigh) would then list three damage levels: melee, occult and HTH.

Just had a little play with the App - (I added a weapon which was not allowed due to ST, but for some reason, unable to remove it again.)

Halfling Stats appear to be off.

When creating a Character you have 8 points to spend, when there should only be 6 for a Halfling.

Problems with adjDX

In adventure mode: Simonn (ST10 DX14) vs Grizzly Bear

Turn 4 -- Simonn was hit for 7 damage:"Taking 5 or more points of damage means your next DX roll will be at -2". OK so far. Could mention here that ST is now 3 or less however.

Turn 5 -- Simonn disengages, bear could not attack. Hmm... see below.

Turn 6 -- Simonn attacks first but at "-2DX for previous injury, -3 to DX because remaining ST is 3 or less". Hmm...

Two things.
1. If Simonn's DX is -5 due to injury effects (adjDX=9), then the Bear should attack first at adjDX=11 (on both turns 5 and 6).
2. Shouldn't the temporary -2DX for 5+ damage on turn 4 apply to the next *action* (ie the turn 5 disengage), not the next *attack*, which might occur several turns later (as in this example, turn 6).

Couple bugs:
--Roll dices : extra "+" in the results . Example with 2 dices : "2+5+=7"
--Arena fight : stuck in middle of third round. Won init, rolled 16 on sling attack, automatic miss. Nothing more happen. Opponent : one-eyed sorcerer, summoned bear, summoned wolf.
