Yep.  Looks like no bug just me misreading the rules.

Create a new Template in a template file:  "No More Encumbrance issues"

Place this tag in it "BONUS:VAR|LoadScore|40"

Note, that will alter those characters with it to act as if their Strength Score is 40 higher. But that will eliminate the encumbrance issues.

You could also just give the Hobbit a Bag of Holding.

Longer-term, go in and alter the weights Game Companies assign to items---but remember that weight also is meant to model size and shape, because some things are just awkward to carry around.

Hi Everyone,

I am hoping someone can show me a fix for a load / encumbrance issue in PCGEN 6.08.00 RC8.  I have a Halfling Druid character that is constantly affected by a Medium or Heavy load (drops his speed, lowers AC, etc).  I have turned off both "Load Penalty" and "Weight Penalty" options in the House Rules section, but the penalties never go away.  Does anyone have any ideas how to turn those off permanently.  I am running a game for my kids and I don't want to throw encumbrance rules at them.

Thanks in Advance.

Re: Not proficient with Halfling Sling Staff #bug #pathfinder

Ralph Zajac
 

From the Pathfinder SRD: Weapon Familiarity: Halflings are proficient with slings and treat any weapon with the word "halfling" in its name as a martial weapon. (Emphasis mine.)

What this means is that any weapon with hafling in the name requires an exotic weapon proficiency for that specific weapon for most races. If the character is a hafling, they just need Martial weapon proficiency to be able to use all "halfling" weapons without penalty. You're character, while being a halfling, probably doesn't have martial weapon proficiency. Try creating a halfling fighter or ranger, and see if the penalty is still there. If it is, then there is a bug somewhere.

Not proficient with Halfling Sling Staff #bug #pathfinder

PCGen v6.08.00 RC8
Windows 10
Pathfinder data set (not PFS)

When I create a halfling aclemist (also tested on a generic halfling), if I try to add a Halfling Sling Staff, it show that I am not proficient.  I didn't change the racial trait that changes my racial weapons so I should be proficient.

House rules are broken for Encumbrance.

Not sure if there are any Java coders who can take a look and solve the issue.

Hi Brad,  

Sorry, forgot to mention that its a first edition Pathfinder game.  I've tried loading the "Pathfinder RPG for Players" and "Pathfinder RPG Core Supplements" sources but the penalties still come up.  This is also a clean install of PCGEN as I only built my system a few weeks ago (Ryzen 7 3700X, 48GB of RAM, Win10 Pro if that helps).  I tried the 6.09.01 version on my last system, but that never fully loaded the skills list so I didn't bother to install it on my new system.

Let me know if you need anything else.


Thanks Again for the Help,

Can Item Customizer Access Spells Beyond CR? #pathfinder

allencohn
 

Hello!

I've got both Core Rulebook and Advanced Players Guide loaded. I'm trying to create a potion of a 1st-level spell from the APG by selecting a generic potion from the Inventory | Purchase tab and then right-clicking to Add Custom. The spell list presented only seems to access the CR

Am I merely making a mistake and there is a way to get the customizer to access APG spells? If so, what is it?

Many thanks,

Allen

Allen,

There was an issue when refactoring all the classes and Bard got a little screwed up. There's a quick fix, though.   

In .\pcgen\data\pathfinder\paizo\roleplaying_game\core_rulebook\cr_abilities_class.lst on lines 204-213, replace Cleric_CFP_Level with Bard_CFP_Level.

Actually, now I've found the "Bard Class Features" within the Feats & Abilities | Class Features tab. But I thought all those would be assigned automatically according to Table 3-3 (CR, p. 36).

I can't even click the list to assign them manually because the window below says I have 0 Total/0 Remaining selections.

What was I supposed to do to activate this?

Thanks, Allen

Hello!

I must be going blind, but I can't see where to specify which performance skill to choose when a bard acquires "versatile performance." Help, please?

I'm using PCGen 6.08.00 RC8.

Thanks,

Have you tried using the latest stable build (6.08 RC8)? That version you are using is ancient.

Also, the .log file (latest one in the directory where PCGen is installed) should show more details on the crash (hopefully?) such as a full stack trace of where it occurred.  If it has that, it's immensely useful to us tracing the root cause.

Thanks!
