Archive for January, 2008 - Another quick fix

Thursday, January 24th, 2008

This time TJ sneakily changed the way the age of events was displayed in the messages when I wasn’t lookin. This caused Brimstone to get confused and treat the same list of events as new events. If like me you never bother clearing your message log this results in a huge number of duplicate events. Sorry about that.

Download it now. - Quick fix for Spy and Survey Reports

Wednesday, January 23rd, 2008

Another day, another Warbook change breaks Brimstone. This time if you spy or survey a kingdom with a space in their name the returned report was unreadable by Brimstone.

This is fixed in

(According to my usual naming scheme this should probably be 0.4.1 but I made it as and I can’t be bothered to rename it now)


0.4.0 - Bebo support and more!

Sunday, January 20th, 2008

There’s a fair amount in this release. Unfortunately, I’ve had to rush releasing it due to yet another Brimstone breaking change made to Warbook. So I apologise if there are a few rough edges. So what’s new?

Bug Fixes:

* Brimstone created unknown events when building/razing buildings
* Brimstone got confused by the new time information on the message log and would add events multiple times

New Features:

* Bebo support - Brimstone will now allow you to have both a Facebook and Bebo Warbook account and swap player info accordingly
* New option to save all events to a log file
* New option to hide zero/empty building/unit counts in player information (saves screen space)
* Ability to copy player info to clipboard (Ctrl+C or right-click -> Copy)
* Brimstone now reads Faction and Alliance info (although not your own alliance as I’m not in one and so don’t know how this works)

I think that’s it. You can get it from or just use auto update.


0.3.2 - Fix for reading Hero page

Monday, January 7th, 2008

0.3.2 has been released with the following changes:

  • 0.3.1 didn’t read the Hero page properly. 0.3.2 fixes this
  • A new option to clear all Brimstone data. Use with care!

Download it from here.

0.3.1 released

Friday, January 4th, 2008

0.3.1 is now ready for general consumption. It has two new features compared with 0.3.1.B1:

  • Proper support for Firefox 3.0b2
  • A new options screen (Tools -> Brimstone -> Options) where you can set whether or not you want Brimstone to leave Warbook pages in Facebook frames or to reload them full page

Preview: 0.3.1.B1 - Emergency Fix

Tuesday, January 1st, 2008

I believe that I have fixed most of the stuff that was broken by the last Warbook update. Normally, I would do more testing before releasing a new version of Brimstone but I thought you would all appreciate a version that at least works a bit rather than being completely broken.

As such, I am releasing 0.3.1.B1 for public consumption. Please appreciate that this is a quick fix and stuff might still not work. I hope to release 0.3.1 as soon as I happy that everything is working OK.

Warbook update

Tuesday, January 1st, 2008

Well the good news is that there has been a massive Warbook update which is rather nice. The bad news is that it has completely broken Brimstone. I’m working on a fix now but it may be a little while to get Brimstone up and running again.
