Well now this is odd. Being a) stub­born and b) a bit techy, I have per­se­vered, with some suc­cess.

Symptoms/​observations. I ini­ti­ated down­load (again) and observed that all seemed to go well until about half way through. Then it all slowed down dra­mat­i­cally, and then sud­denly com­pleted the 2nd half unfea­si­bly quickly.

Aha, thinks I — that is sus­pi­cious. And indeed, the resul­tant file was still unread­able.

Some­thing made me ini­ti­ate the down­load again. On this occa­sion, the rate of down­load was quite quick, and rea­son­ably con­stant through­out the process. Result? A read­able (and beau­ti­ful) file!

Con­clu­sion. The basic file does not seem to be the issue. It is being cor­rupted by the down­load process (explain­ing why peo­ple on sim­i­lar ver­sions of soft­ware var­i­ously can and can­not read it).

So my sug­ges­tion to those hav­ing trou­ble would be to down­load again, at a quiet time for both server and your own machine, to min­imise the chances of hic­cup.


(why the down­load process should be a bit trou­ble­some for some peo­ple, myself included, I do not know, espe­cially when we all down­loaded the much big­ger rules pdf suc­cess­fully). My first guess would be set­ting on server, but I have no basis for that, just ini­tial hunch.)

Whilst I’m on the sub­ject, a ques­tion on the sheet itself…
At the bot­tom of the first side, we have Pas­sion Attrib­utes. There are columns here for ‘Attribute’, ‘Descrip­tion’ and ‘Val’

I can under­stand descrip­tion, and a rat­ing I’d record under either Attribute or Val. But both? What’s THAT about? Is Attribute sup­posed to be some sort of iden­ti­fier for the PA? (e..g PA1, PA2 etc) ? Or what? I fear I may be miss­ing some­thing here.

Also, I notice no space to record (optional) Encum­brance, but space to record (optional) Fatigue. I can of course triv­ially resolve this, but won­dered whether it was a con­scious or inad­ver­tent deci­sion.

(noticed these ques­tions on main rule book char­ac­ter sheet , but have only just got round to them)

Fail­ure rate for the down­load of the Char­ac­ter Sheet is roughly the same as for the Core rules.

Aha! I was fooled by the fact that I had sev­eral attempts before I got the char­ac­ter sheet, but no prob­lems at all get­ting the rules. Such are the vagaries of prob­a­bilty, tim­ing etc.

My trou­bled mind can rest at last..

Huraaa
finally after 10+ tries I have it here — uncor­rupted.

There are unfor­tu­nately errors such as miss­ing the wound zones pic­tures so I cant crate editable (and usable) pdf :(
Maybe from the final ver­sion it will be possible.

Does any­one else not see the tar­get dummy images at the bot­tom of page 2?

That is issue of pdf for­mat and non-​adobe read­ers. Unfor­tu­nately pdf for­mat (even though it is an open for­mat since 2008) is still a bit black­box as it seems and not very reader friendly. I had very occa­sion­ally a sim­i­lar prob­lem with dif­fer­ent pdfs (no mat­ter how the pdfs were regen­er­ated from InDe­sign) mostly when they were cre­ated to be as small as pos­si­ble

This is sim­ply mat­ter of non-​adobe read­ers which I use as they are faster and more resource friendly as Adobe Reader.

I finally have a read­able copy after about seven tries. Weird; I got the core book no prob­lem on the very first attempt.

I can see the tar­get dum­mies just fine on OSX Preview.

I’ve noticed that there are only 4 slots for Assets but a start­ing char­ac­ter can poten­tially have 8. It’s not a deal breaker since you can put the Assets in blank lines under the Skills sec­tion, but I thought I would men­tion it in case you were able to make a change before the book came out.

The char­ac­ter sheet no longer appears to be avail­able on the Down­loads sec­tion, nor does there appear to be a char­ac­ter sheet in the released, art­less ver­sion of the book. I guess a char­ac­ter sheet will be re-​released in the near future?
