Where are the PCGen autobuilds?

yotam1703@...
 

I remeber using this page and others to help me with PCGen syntax.
Though they still apprear on google (the link above should lead to "other tags"), the links in fact all take me to the offcial PCGen website with an error 404.
Does anyone know what happened to them? They were extremely helpful.

Re: Where are the PCGen autobuilds?

Andrew Maitland
 

Autobuilds are not operational on that site any longer.

F1 should open the help documents that has the LST Syntax when you have PCGen open, or navigate to the install folder for pcgen and open the DOCs folder, the index.htm is the base navigation page and will open in a browser.

Cheers,

Andrew

New races added to the newsource repo on github (

Take them for a test run and let me know how they work.

Done.  Possibly twice, since the first time didn't seem to go through properly.

Okay. I just need to know one thing... how do I do that? :)

I *am* fairly new to PCGen. Well, to actually using it, I mean. I've got the files downloaded (and, gee, shouldn't there be a download link for more than just the JPG file?) and set up in a folder, but from there? I can't seem to get Install Data to find it.

Joel,

The easiest thing to do is to download the entire newsources repo, unpackage it to a directory, then point pcgen to that folder. 

  1. Go to  https://github.com/PCGen/pcgen-newsources
  2. Click the green "Clone or download" button and then "Download ZIP"
  3. Create a folder (not in your PCGEN directory) called "newsources" and extract the ZIP file there.
  4. Open PCGEN and open the preferences from the Tools>Preferences menu item
  5. Find the Location group under the PCGEN group
  6. Set the PCGEN Homebrew Data Directory to your newsources folder.
  7. Restart PCGEN and enjoy your new content!

Walk 20 with Light Armor and Encumbrance?

Joel Fischoff
 

So, for my Ophiduan Vitalist, any ideas why the speed would be listed as 'Walk 20' when he's wearing light armor (Darkleaf Cloth Lamellar Leather), and light encumbrance (37.5 out of 43)? More precisely, any way for me to track down what's causing it?


Thanks in advance,

Joel

Re: Walk 20 with Light Armor and Encumbrance?

No idea without seeing the character.

If you send it to me, I can take a look.

I love pcgen, but since putting new RAM in my computer i've had an issue with Lag, especially when i use a lot of source books.  I know it's best not to use what you don't need, but i sometimes get bored and just make random characters... when i do that i want as many options as possible, thus more source books.

I think you either need to install JavaFX as dependency, or we need to properly build a jlink application.

Re: maybe bug? #pathfinder

Timmy Morrison
 

is this fixed? I think there are multiple bugs with kineticist not allowing me to choose most of the later levels of earth kineticist because I made a level 6 earth kineticist and can add any of the infusions of level 4 and above.

Campaign History/Description formatting?

Joel Fischoff
 

I've made some extensive use of the Campaign History section on the Description tab.  Despite me typing line-by-line, it reformats it into a mess of text that's near impossible to read.

So, is there a way to format the Campain History so that it doesn't do that?

Re: maybe bug? #pathfinder

Andrew Maitland
 

Bugs need to be submitted to the JIRA -- https://pcgenorg.atlassian.net

It is possible it is already fixed, but please submit the DATA Bug and a character to show the deficiency.

Thanks,

When is the text distorted?

PDF or in the GUI?

The PDF.  In PCGen proper, it looks fine.  Basically, in the PDF, all of the CR/LFs are removed.

Also, i tried the JIRA thing, but, i just can't figure it out... pretty stupid but i posted here instead. If someone knows the answer that would be great. Or if someone could tell me how to post on JIRA.

Re: Campaign History/Description formatting?

PDF or in the GUI?
Practical example. This is the text for one section in PCGen's Description/Campaign History tab:
---
100xp A6 Haunted Chamber: Desperate Prisoner trap,
100xp A7 Ledge Controls. Small Lightning Elemental,
150xp A8 Persuasion Chamber. Harzogopas,
100xp A9 Sludge Through. Acid Trap,
150xp A10 Who Goes There? Covered Pit trap - Good Baron Sarvo Wills It,
150xp A11 Clockwork Guardian: Clockwork Servant - GM Fiat,
100xp A12 Canteclure Treasury: Injured Ghoul,
200xp A12 Canteclure Treasury: Treasure Chests (Looting the Treasury): 18500cp, 4000sp, 115gp, 14pp, and a teak case with 30 gems worth 800gp in total.

Next game: Get Homer healed from Ghoul Fever. At House of Abadar, exchange miscellaneous coin for GP, get Wand of Cure Light Wounds. Remaining gold per person, 222.5gp

This is what it looks like in the PDF (though the formatting here is imperfect because the margins are obviously different):

I've just seen the same thing, so I just put in Data-3976 for it.
Not a clue where to start troubleshooting that one, but I'm open to helping troubleshoot after I get back to civilization in two weeks.

How do I add to open-ended skills like Profession?

How do I add ranks to an open-ended skill like Profession if it isn't one of the ones listed in the Profession 'dropdown'?
