    This update is fantastic. I really like the new look and how many improvements there are.

    I don't know if this is the right place to bring this up but:

    Potential bugs:

    1. Unable to remove race after it has been added to a character sheet. (As a user I would like to be able to change my mind before play begins on race even after entire sheet is filled out without starting over.)
    2. All armor is counted against Toughness when equipped even when the RAW state only chest armor counts for that calculation.

    If there is something I am missing please point me to it.

    Thanks.

    RESOLVED: I was using a theme, the Coming of Night that seems to be the source of the problems. I removed it and everything is working fine.

    ---------------

    I was using the new SWADE update to run an ETU game this evening. While I like a lot of the changes, we noticed a few problems.

    1. The first problem was that it would not roll (and therefore add) ace dice when the die result was maxed.

    2. It wouldn't apply modifiers to skill rolls that were double-clicked on the character sheet, but it would apply the modifier if we dragged the skill to the chat window.

    3. When I rolled something as Dean, it would show what I am rolling to the players... like I rolled a stealth roll and while they couldn't see the result they all knew that I was rolling stealth for a non-aligned student.

    Thanks in advance

    I'm not sure if this is the place to report it, but the Obese hindrance increases your running die by one type. The running die doesn't change if you then remove Obese, it's still increased by one.

    The Fleet-Footed edge increases your running die type by one, but if you remove it the die is still increased.

    I'm really not sure if this is the place to ask, I'm very new to FG, is there a good way to add kevlar's bullet damage reduction to NPCs to have it calculated automatically?

    Thanks.

    You can drag and drop new race to replace previous one, however you should manually remove previous race's racial abilities that were added to your sheet. There is no feature to auto remove race and its special abilities because (IMO) it is rare occasion.

    You could only equip chest/torso armor pieces to get this effect. Other armor pieces can be left as carried if you want them to affect to encumbrance.

    I can reproduce Obese hindrance issue and will investigate it further.

    This is known issue, abilities that change your trait/run die are not adjusted back after you remove that ability. Unfortunately there is no fix planned for this since this is again, rare case can you can manage it with manual adjustment.

    NPCs does not have fully featured gear but you could write kevlar and its bullet damage reduction effect into NPCs abilities. I might add effect support to NPC gear section in next version.

    Rock and Roll's Recoil ignore effect is conditional; it applied only if you don't move. Because of it, this won't be automated effect.

    Was this update tested? So many, many things are broken in the SWADE version.

    - Adventure cards don't work
    - You can't remove bennies
    - Wild dies is now rolled separate (so two dice vs one)
    - Exploding dice, broken.
    - Combat is completely broken

    That's just a few things. Can someone really go through and test it.
