Never mind; I decided to bite the bullet and upgrade to 0.8.8. I figure my time would be better spent dealing with upgrade issues (at least I’d be doing something) than waiting for someone to address 0.7.10 to work with modules that should but aren’t.
And let me say, the initial effect wasn’t pretty. Flipping the lever to 0.8.8 was easy enough. And the many modules that needed updating for new Foundry was understandable. But then the incongruities. For instance:
The installed versions shown as not defined (they should be), and the status indicates the update didn’t work, though no worded errors were delivered.
Then I started my games. Deadlands actually started, but at the login screen, something I haven’t seen in ages. My passwords didn’t work. I exited and started my 5e game. Also the login screen but just the background; no way to log in at all. Looked frozen.
I quit my browser and walked away. Got something to eat. I returned several minutes later and tried again. Things now were behaving. No logins; the games went into paused play as expected. Much updating of contents. One of my 5e games took a very long time to churn through actors, compendiums, etc.
In the end, not so bad. A lot of chat is blank where prior dice rolls used to be. All modules tagged Incompatible were turned off, so I had to pick through them and turn on the ones that I recall being on for each game. About Time and Calendar/Weather modules reset to zero. Looks like all the modules’ settings were retained, so thank goodness for that. Actual play will reveal the rest.
