- The ERA logo in the adventuring, treasure, character sheet and character creation modules can now be clicked to go back to the module selection screen.

This is a good feature. Thank you for implementing it.

Suggestion for a new feature: I've now got about 100 config files modified in my ERA installation, so seeing a new version come out has made updating rather daunting.  Can you see a way to make this easier to manage?  Perhaps by having modified files have a different extension, so it is not overridden with an update?

And I do so love how configurable ERA is.

We're glad you like ERA!
Please consider starting a new thread in the forum with details on your changes, so that we can discuss the best way to ease the update process. It will surely be useful to other users in a similar situation.

ERA has been updated.

For those who don't want to open the link, it's just a tweet telling you that RMC character creation has been fixed, and RMFRP new characters will no longer start with a rank binding between Stalk and Hiding.

For those who don't want to open the link, the new directory format for skills, categories and groups is up and running.
If your gaming group uses a customized skill list check out the examples in the /Groups, /Categories and /Skills directories.

Hello there, I just wanted to ask how fast we could expect RMU to be in this software after we get the release version of RMU?
I never used ERA before but I would try it out for sure with the new rules
I hope this is the right topic to ask this in, if not I am sorry

Voriig (the developer of ERA) has said the the RMU module for ERA is all ready to go; it is just waiting for the release of the books. So pretty much as soon as the books are out, so will the ERA module.

That is great!
Is there a feature overview of all the things the software does?

New features and releases: this thread you're in
Update log: ERA/Server/readme.txt in your ERA installation

So nothing as complete and fancy as we'd like, but you can always ask if in doubt :-D

Hi there. I promised myself, and the ERA community, that Training Packages would be available before the end of 2021.
The feature has been added to ERA.
BUT we still haven't completed all the steps to make it available on DriveTruRPG, since other changes in the system require all existing packages on sale to be updated, and we'd like as many of them as possible to add the corresponding TPs as part of that update.

While you wait for the official updates, please find below a link for the BETA release of ERA with Training Package support, 3 sample TPs, and the new avatars by Mathieu Vaillancourt.

Remember that this is for experimental purposes only, do not install your existing book packages over this release. Do not install this over your existing ERA.

This is the Windows version, if you'd like to try out the Linux, Mac or Raspberry Pi versions, let me know.
