That is all.
Added Justice Like Lightning OP cards to Marvel Promos.
That is all.
A Dungeons and Dragons Rainbow Draft Weekend is coming this Fall. The participation prize is Strahd and has already been spoiled, and is available in Sidekick.
I am currently working on how I'm going to handle the characters in the upcoming set that have multiple energy types, as well as sets without starters and starters without sets. I'm hoping I can release an update that contains that functionality in the coming weeks so everyone has the update prior to the set's release. If anyone has any suggestions on how they would like to see multiple energy types represented, please feel free to contact me via the support page. Feel free to send me any other feedback regarding the app there as well.
Over the weekend I uploaded the DC Bombshells OP kit promo cards.
The full set of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles has been spoiled! And even better, all of the cards are now available in Sidekick!
Not only that, but the vast majority of cards for Civil War have been spoiled and added as well. Currently sitting at 120/142 cards spoiled. The rest will be added as they are spoiled.
But wait, there's more! I added the Marvel Knights OP cards and the Squirrel Girl promo to the Marvel Promos set.
I hope everyone has their teams ready for WKO pt. 2. I'll be at Big Bang Comics in KY, so be sure and say hello if you see me there. I'll be the one with the custom Sidekick Playmat :)
A few new promos were just added to Sidekick.
There have been a few small updates to Sidekick over the past 2 weeks. These have mostly revolved around me trying to figure out what was going on with some users not having all the data present after upgrading from versions prior to V1.2.0. I haven't seen any crashes on the App Analytics screen for this version so far. I'm taking that as a good sign.
The only front facing change to users is a check for missing data when attempting to load anything in the catalog. If missing data is detected, a message will pop up informing the user, with instructions on how to manually refresh the data. This is vastly preferred to the previous behavior of the app crashing.
The method of refreshing the data manually is going to Tools -> User Settings -> Force Database Refresh. This will force the app to download all the set data again. Only do this if you see the above message.
If you see any further issues, please don't hesitate to contact me through this site's contact page!
NOTE: If you collection is missing after update, go to User Settings and Log out and back in. If it is crashing on loading sets, reinstall the app. I am looking into this as quickly as I can.
Sidekick has been updated to version 1.2.0 in the App Store!
Features of this update:
The way Sidekick stores its data locally ended up being a problem. I originally used the local datastore of the service I am using to host Sidekick's data. Apparently it wasn't too happy when there were over 1000 cards, which didn't happen until ASM, and it would only show the symptoms of the problem occasionally (and never in my testing :/ ). I've pulled this out and implemented the local datastore myself. This will finally fix the issue where sets are disappearing. A pleasant side effect of these changes is an app with much quicker load times.
I've also tried to make the app a little more intelligent when it comes to checking for updates. It will now at least check for an internet connection instead of attempting to grab updates until it timed out. This should allow the app to start up more quickly in most cases.
Please give the update a try and let me know if there are any issues, preferable using the feedback form on this site. The backend change was a big one, so there is always a chance there are some bugs in there. The joys of software development.
Thanks everyone for your support!
Greetings fellow Dice Masters!
Sidekick has been updated with the data for World's Finest!
I have also added all the current promos including WKO, Bat-mite, and alt art Superman.
There is also an update for the app in the approval process with Apple that greatly improves the speed of loading data and should prevent that pesky bug where sets disappear!
Version 1.1.2 of Sidekick was just approved and published in the App Store.
-Fixed a bug where the wrong affiliation icons can appear for cards in teams.
-Added set indicators for Basic Actions.
-Sorted cards in teams alphabetically, with Basic Actions at the top.
The team icon bug was an important one, so I wanted to get it fixed as soon as possible, that's why there wasn't much in this update.
Good news, everyone!
Sidekick has been updated with the full Dungeons and Dragons Faerun Under Siege! All you have to do to get the set is open your app with an available internet connection and it will automagically download.
The two FUS promo cards that are currently available, Drizzt and Belephoss, have been added to the "Dungeons & Dragons Promos" set as well.
Let me know through the contact form on this website if you find any data that was incorrectly entered and I will fix it as quickly as I can.
I hope everyone is enjoying the app and good luck on your pulls!
This is a place to keep up with any updates to the Sidekick for Dice Masters App.
