Autosofts can't accept program options.

Where is this listed, then? I have the corrected third printing of Unwired, and the following is on page 114, the second paragraph under "Program Options":

Quote:
Only Common Use (p. 232, SR4A), Hacking (p. 233, SR4A), Autosoft (p. 246, SR4A, and p. 112), and Simsense programs (including BTLs and skillsofts) may be equipped with program options.
Additionally, on page 115, it lists autosofts as valid for accepting the Optimization upgrade:

Quote:
Optimization (Rating)
Program Types: Common, Hacking, Autosoft, Simsense
Is there some errata somewhere I haven't seen?

Alas no, not you it's us. Catalyst is very far behind with publishing their errata and FAQ's at present. Unles syou dig through their forums you'll never find any and even then CGL haven't dubbed any official.

So the new printings of the core rulebooks, such as your new third printing of Unwired, is more up to date than any other books. So until things like this occur - someone with the latest book try to do something and HL won't allow it - we don't know there's a problem.

I'd say this will be corrected relatively easy, but it's a bug :o)

That's not correct. Unwired specifically indicates Autosofts as being able to accept the following Program Options:
  • Crashguard (Common, Hacking, Autosoft, Simsense)
  • Limitation (Common, Hacking, Autosoft, Simsense)
  • Optimization (Common, Hacking, Autosoft, Simsense)
  • Registration (Common, Hacking, Autosoft, Simsense)
  • Timer (Common, Hacking, Autosoft, Simsense)
  • Viral Resistance (Common, Hacking, Autosoft, Simsense)

Source: Unwired, current PDF version, pp 114-116. Screenshots can be supplied upon request.

It's cool Pax, there's been changed to Unwired and they now mean Hero Lab isn't correct any more.

There may well be a LOT of these out there, and until someone runs across them in this manner we'll never know cos CGL is so far behind on Errata. They haven't even produced a delta to allow people to incorporate the changes into older printings.

"Behind" isn't the word, Canis.

"Pathologically averse" is probably more accurate.

As for updates, that's why I prefer to buy PDFs directly from the BattleShop. I just get a new download link, and whoosh, updated "printing".

Yeah I'm seriously considering getting the PDFs as well as print....

And hopefully once the con season is over CGL will sort this out as it is very poor. I'm not even sure they're ammending errors found by the proofers.

CGL seem to get like this around con season. Actually that's not fair, all small companies get like this around con season.

It's not just con season, Canis. There's errata-worthy errors that are over a year old, that still haven't been addressed. Catalyst hasn't issued an actual errata file in ... I think it's two years, now.

Like I said, "pathologically averse".

Ok, I've got another one, I think.

I've made a Vampire (Human HMHVV), and it's giving it a vulnerability to silver. I don't see this listed in SR420thA or Runner's Companion as a trait for Vampires.
