Just to be sure, is the box labeled “Allow Use of Higher Level Slots” selected?

Subject: [pcgen] PCGen 6.08.00 RC2 bug with D&D 5e spell calculation mechanism

 

I have created D&D 5e Ranger, Sorcerer and Warlock characters in PCGen 6.06.01 and 6.08.00 RC2

using the D&D 5e System Reference Document 5.1 data set

and found the same bug affecting each character generation.

The "Spells Known" does not allow lower level spells to be added or swaped

despite there being higher level spell slots available.

The error generated is "You can only learn 0 spells for level 1 and there are no higher level spots available."

Hi Brad,

 

I use MapTool (also a Java program) for the game map during a game. So I use a Raspberry Pi 3 B and Raspbian connected to a projector mounted on the ceiling and facing down onto the table. A large piece is white artwork paper is the screen. MapTool runs on my PC and I enable the MapTool server. Then I VNC into the Raspberry Pi over the local network and run MapTool as a client. My Laptop shows me the GM’s map and the Raspberry Pi displays the player’s map with fog of war, vision blocking, light sources, etc. I zoom the player’s map to 1” squares and the players put their minis on the displayed map. I use MapTool counters for monsters. I play Pathfinder and use the Pathfinder macros in MapTool that allows me to import the all the monster’s stats and hit points.

 

Eventually, I will replace the non-smart projector with a smart network projector and eliminate the Raspberry Pi from the setup, and just run MapTool in two instances on my PC, one for GM and one for PC on the extended desktop which will be the projector. Or perhaps I will build a tripod elevated mirror and use a short-throw projector to project up to the mirror and down to the table top to make the idea portable and completely eliminate the need for a network connection. As it is now, I don’t need internet access, but I still need a network to connect the PC instance to the Raspberry Pi instance.

 

To learn how to use MapTool I watched the video series from Thomas Chapman. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9rVo2Yj-xcw&list=PLD4i-ngGs9thEXoHaxzRqD0b3zWcmpAOn, and read some posts on the MapTool forums.

 

This process has worked well for 2 years now. I am running Curse of The Crimson Throne Adventure Path for an average of 3 short (2.5 hour) sessions a month. MapTool lets me prepare the maps, vision blocking, fog of war and monster tracking in advance helps me keep the game moving in the short game sessions.

I've played around a bit with DungeonFog (https://www.dungeonfog.com/) [Thank you for the suggestion Christoph Stahl!]. I turned out this simple map (see attached) with very little effort using the free version of the web app. I really like that it's a top-down mapper and I can apparently create "fog of war" effects on a displayed map so I can use it during a gaming session. I have to work out how to do that still but this is a very cool option.

Here is something I built *very* quickly using Dungeon Builder (https://hobbyte.net/). It's an isometric dungeon mapper so that may not be everyone's cup of tea but I like it.

Inkarnate (https://inkarnate.com/) seems to be pretty good. I put together the maps attached here with the free version and about an hour total effort. This web applications my vote.

Jami,

I found this in my Spam folder... You might perhaps re-think how you lay out your messages? You triggered many of my Spam signs:

  • dubious real name "please_no_email"
  • short message text
  • "take a serious look at"
  • short text plus a hyper-link to a site with a short name.

It was sat next to several similar messages, trying to get me to follow links to (I guess) virus-hacked PDFs, exploit pages, Amazon review fakers,...


The only that rescued it was when I verified the "from PCGen" part...

Hi all, we're looking to improve the User Interface. @thpr was hoping to make the User Interface game agnostic and customizable. Any HTML 5 or HTML gurus who want to play around and give input or actual Proof of Concept code?
The reason for HTML, it is simple, customizable, and normally runs javascript (Something we can utilize perhaps). We're open to other ideas, but we want something that doesn't rely on JAVA knowledge.

Correct.  The commit is 908fecc in the 6.08 branch, so RC2 will have the fix.

Thanks

If I may add dungeonfog (https://www.dungeonfog.com/) to the mix. They are free to use for a limited amount of assets and you can upload custom assets.

I also found this: https://pymapper.com/

"Pymapper is a map making utility used for role-playing games. The tile
images are provided by the user and can be any jpg or png format image.
Finished maps can be printed scaled down or full size for easy use in
your gaming sessions.

There is also game support for the Paizo Pathfinder and Dungeons &
Dragons 3.5 and 5th Edition rulesets.

A fog-of-war option is also available for those of you lucky enough to
have a projector or other dual screen system.

Pymapper is actively developed in the python computer language, and the
source code is available for download, as well as windows executables."

and...

"Pymapper is open source, and freely available. The source code
requires python 2.x (but not python 3*), and wxpython 2.8 (and not
wxPython 3*). You will need those installed if you wish to run the
native source code, which is required for those on Linux or MacOS.
Windows users can opt to run the source code, or may run the program as
a windows executable.

*Note: You can try to use python 3.x, and wxpython 3.x…no guarantees
what will happen. I’d love to get your feedback though!

As always, if you find problems, please email bugs@... for
assistance."

Thanks,

Brad

Hello,

I hope this isn't against the rules but I'm looking for a campaign
mapping application (e.g. Campaign Cartographer or AutoREALM) that will
work in Linux. The program can be web-based and I don't mind paying a
(reasonable) fee to use the software.

Does anyone here have any suggestions?

Thanks,

It's setup almost exactly like PCGen, there's a windows installer, a mac installer and a jar file for linux.

I use hexographer 2 in a Windows 10 VM using virtualbox on Ubuntu 16.04 and it seems to be fully functional. It is Windows only I believe.

I've found Hexographer / Worldograher work well enough with a Windows 10 VM (VirtualBox) on Ubuntu 16.04.
