Adventurers! We’d like to take a short break from our regular programme to announce the release of The GameBook Authoring Tool 1.5! Here are the new things you can expect to find:

HTML support

Some of you have been asking for HTML support, so now here it is. You can export your book directly to HTML:

The code behind is all linked to css classes, so you can customise the look and feel of it, if that is your thing.

HTML generated code

Better unicode support

There were some problems exporting certain characters to rtf, for example ä,ö,ü, not to mention こんにちは.
These are now fixed. Thank you if you reported this.

Lovelier Graphs

We’re rounded off the edges of the graphs and it’s much more space efficient and they pack more tightly. We also think it looks a lot nicer.

First the old way:

And the new way:
