Character4ge Redux

In Character4ge on April 21, 2010 at 12:33 am

Character4ge Redux will not upgrade over the current Character4ge. It will be a seperate product. I had to ponder this for weeks. The reasons are the following:

Character4ge Redux is a complete rewrite.

  • The backbone of the app is completely different. The database has received such a huge overhaul that it is no longer compatible with the current Character4ge. Making a character upgrade successfully to Character4ge Redux would have been too tricky.
  • The interface is different…radically so.
  • A lot of automation has been lost in favor of flexibility. Some may still find the current Character4ge adequate for their characters but 4e rules have so many exceptions at this point that automation was becoming a hinderance in some cases.
  • I’ve spent over 3 months on this upgrade and need a new source of income to pay for the development and future upgrades.

Thus, the upgrade cannot be forced onto you.

With that in mind, I hope that you will be willing to shell out just a bit more for a much, much improved Character4ge. If you feel cheated for having to pay more for this new version, send me a proof of your purchase and I will give you a promo code when Character4ge Redux is out.
