    Updates!

    I've done a rather poor job of letting everyone know when updates were available to this application. There have been quite a few updates since release, here are notes!

    DM Minion v1.9 Update
    Added Use Action Point action to Other Actions menu to deduct AP from Monster/Player if available
    Added popup alerts if AP is used or not
    Added Player View for dual monitor setups (Desktop Only)
    Added basic update checking (Desktop Only)

    DM Minion v1.8 Update
    Added option to auto number monsters when combat starts.
    Added option to auto letter (A-Z) monsters when combat starts.
    Added field to Combatant Summary(right swipe) screen to override generated label.
    Increased size of buttons on the Damage/Healing Calculator to better utilize room available.
    Weaknesses, Immunities, and Resistances are now extracted from XML and shown on the Combatant Summary.
    Creatures with natural regeneration will now automatically have the regeneration condition added to them when combat starts.

    DM Minion v1.5 Update
    Tweaked combatant list to better utilize space
    Fixed bug where Defense bonuses were not updated on the combatant when added

    DM Minion v1.3 Update
    Fixed issue with Initiative Bonus Saving/Loading
    Fixed issue with Target and Range Saving/Loading
    Increased default font to 12

    DM Minion v1.2 Update
    Fixed data sync issues when loading adventures when a adventure was already created.
    myMinion login is now saved the first time you log in.

    DM Minion v1.1 Update

    The Damage and healing slider control will be replaced by a "calculator" type control, that is less cumbersome to use.
    Player and Monster stats and Powers will now addable by creating them with out side using the DDI Import. Only a name will be required for users that want to track minimal amounts of player data.
    Most player/Monster stats and powers will now be editable via the edit screen.
    Fixed issue in DDI import that would cause monster's Secondary Attacks to not show their damage rolls.

    I started fiddling with this today. I have a few questions;

    - Is it possible to create our own conditions? I don't think it is, but I'd really like that capability.
    - I find the current theme to be rather dark and difficult to read at times. Would it be possible for there to be a different theme?

    Otherwise, I'm liking it.
    Will Thibault is a winged, feathered serpent rarely found anywhere except in warm, jungle-like regions or flying through the ether. Due to his intelligence and powers he is regarded with awe by the inhabitants of his homelands and is considered to be divine.

    Can DDi files be uploaded through the iPad somehow, or do you need to use a computer for that?

    We have a "Quick Condition" feature on list, so it is coming.
    We will do some research for additional and selectable themes and see what we can do.

    Fjw70, the way it works is that DDI files are exported from the tools set then uploaded to our website then downloaded to the iPad, so yes you do need a computer.

    Yeah, I noticed that later on. I was just about to compose a feature request email, but I guess I don't have to!

    The quick custom condition is /alright/, though there are a couple problems I have with it; I would prefer to be able to assign it its own name and icon do differentiate between different effects. Even better, I'd also like to be able to modify the conditions list outside of combat. I spend enough time in prep that setting them up then would be convenient, while also saving me some time during the game. It would also allow me to re-use the same condition over the course of a battle, which I'd imagine the current setup can't do (especially if there are multiple "special" effects in the encounter).

    And thanks for looking into alternate themes. The current one is actually one of the things that's kept me away from this app for so long; I just find it so difficult to work in.

    (edit: Noticed quick conditions was the potential feature you were talking about, while I was talking about the existing custom conditions feature)

    v1.21 is coming soon and adds one very exciting feature!
    We have added all 5000+ D&D 4E Monster files into the app. Once its released you can add monsters without using the website!

    Players and any custom monsters can still be added using the website!

    Also here are some v1.20 change notes.

    This is particularly good in light of my fear that the Monster Builder will eventually be taken offline.
