0.2.3 - Quick fix

December 8th, 2007

A recent change in Warbook broke Brimstone with regards to some large numbers. Numbers written in the form xxxx K sometimes appear as xxxx k.

0.2.3 now allows for both cases.

0.2.2 Released

December 5th, 2007

This is a minor release to tide you over until I have an extended period to work on saving attack/defence logs.

New to 0.2.2:

  • Monitoring of background tabs (if a page loads in a background tab Brimstone will still update)
  • Comma separated numbers (this will hopefully make the numbers more readable)
  • Brimstone will no longer show a defence value for kingdoms you haven’t spied yet

Get it from the usual place. Have fun!

Brimstone 0.2.1 - Hot fix for *nix

November 30th, 2007

It turned out that in 0.2 there was a permissions bug that meant that on *nix the database file wasn’t created properly. This release fixes that problem.

If you are a Linux/BSD/etc user then you should get this version. If you have already installed 0.2 and are getting the database error then you should do the following:

  • Uninstall 0.2
  • Find your firefox profile directory
  • Remove the folder brimstonedata
  • Install 0.2.1

If you are a Mac OS X user, it is quite possible that you will also be affected by this issue.

If you haven’t installed 0.2 then you don’t have to worry. Just get the lastest version and all should be good.

Brimstone 0.2 - Now with session saving

November 28th, 2007

In this version of Brimstone it will now save any players that you spy or survey. When Brimstone loads it will automatically load any players viewed in the past 24 hours.

Brimstone on Warbook!

TJ very generously offered to promote Brimstone in Warbook, which was rather nice of him. So next time you log on to Warbook, you may be ‘lucky’ enough to see my little plug. :D
