Occult Chronicles Update 1.05

Installation:

You can download a .zip file or a self extracting .exe file.  Once you have saved the file to your computer, locate the folder the was created when you extracted the full game.  In most cases it is called OccultChronicles.  Go to this folder and delete a sub folder called GameData.  Now double click on either the .zip or self extracting .exe and copy the files to the OccultChronicles folder. You will be copying over a new GameData folder as well as replacing two files: MainIFace.cxt and GameEngine.cxt.  When you start the game it should now read 1.o5 in the bottom left corner of the main menu.

The UI for the claim item display now lets you view the newly acquired item in detail by selecting it with a left click so that you can compare it to items you already have in your inventory when deciding what items to keep and which ones to discard.

The expertise coins number displayed in the Personnel Folder is now red when the story icon that prohibits spending tokens is active and clicking on a space to add a coin now brings up a dialogue box explaining the problem.

The amount of ammo, charge or courage remaining for a special option added by an item is now displayed on the encounter dialogue UI.

Clicking ‘Ok’ on the targeting display when you have not yet selected any targets for an item’s ability now negates any targeting actions but does allow for card draws that were part of the items special ability.

Some characters have been excluded for use when entering a save game name.

The story speeds have been adjusted so that you have 10% more time on average to complete your mission. In standard speed this amounts to 110 extra turns on average.

Psychic Pushback can now turn positive health and sanity rewards into negative effects after you have won a challenge. Your pushback is divided by two and then a random number is generated. If the number is less than the halved pushback number then the result is switched from positive to negative. The pushback is then halved again for the next check on a positive result card for health or sanity.

Some of the psychic edges have had their maximum edge level reduced.

Added an encounter in the dungeon torture chambers that will help investigators find the final mission location.

Altars of the various abominations now have a much improved chance of generating a Major Arcana or Talisman reward.

Reduced the general chance of random encounters by 20%.
