Problems updating d d character builder
Gamers stuck on horrors like Internet Explorer 6 (how many hit dice does that have? Combine that with the usual host of change-reluctant gamers and you know Wizards will hear a lot of grumping about this for years to come.
For now, at least, we can content ourselves with some Wizards’ supplied screenshots of the new Silverlight CB in action.
You can find various options for the sheet and its content in the application settings.
Some items you previously added to your inventory might not show up and require you to add them manually again.
Using the interface I’ll be able to access the same character sheet and a change I make at home while working out how I’ll level up will be automatically accessible from my travelling laptop when I go north to Dundoom to play the game. I think Silverlight suits them better and I’m more comfortable with getting my Character Builder supplied to me via Silverlight.

I use Seesmic Desktop for Twitter, for example, and the latest version of that uses Silverlight.Another problem is that this is Wizards providing executable software for my laptop to run – and each and every piece of anti-virus software and firewall security I’ve ever had has always had a problem with it. The disadvantage to Silverlight is that you need to be connected to the internet (which is where your character details are stored) in order to make it run. Just last week Microsoft themselves hinted the future for some web-based stuff might not be Silverlight.For example the ammuntion packs of 20 have been replaced with single pieces of stackable ammunition.Equipment Section The builder now comes loaded with over 500 items such as adventuring gear, tools, magic weapons and armor, wondrous items, potions and poison, and more through custom content.
