Re: Flight Maneuverability in PCGen

George Taranellos
 

Hi Andrew.

Has this been fixed in RC8?

I have attached a pcg file of my character.

Manoeuvrability for me is Average, Fly Speed 20.
My manoeuvrability becomes Perfect, Fly Speed 35 when I add Strong Wings as a Temporary Bonus.
I add a -2 Flight Manoeuvrability temporary bonus to take the manoeuvrability down to Average but the speed remains 35

Also, I noticed that you can add +/- Walk speed under Feats&Abilities/Misc.  Could you do the same thing with Fly Speed to deal with this?

Thanks
George

https://github.com/PCGen/pcgen/releases/download/6.08.00RC5/pcgen-release-notes-60800RC6.html

Prerequisites:

Java 11 aka Java 55 aka 18.09 or 18.10. (Including OpenJDK 11 variants)

PCGEN 6.08.00 RC6 is not compatible with Java 10 (or earlier) and it is NOT SUPPORTED. To get the latest version of Java, go to AdoptOpenJDK. PCGen has been tested with OpenJDK and AdoptOpenJDK Java 11 (including the JRE). We decided to use Java 11 as this is a 3-year supported (Long Term Support), Java 8 is no longer updated.

Be aware that due to Oracle's new Licensing, and lack of availability of the Java 11 JRE public releases, we are recommending OpenJDK alternative. AdoptOpenJDK also have JREs (Normal Java) for the end users that is not installed and may take an extra couple of steps to make work. If this is not something you want to worry about, then please use the WINDOWS INSTALLER version of PCGen, as this comes with embedded JREs for both x86 and x64 Windows OS's. For those that want to do the manual installation, please see below for the 'How to Install' links below for your Operating System. You can download the Oracle Java 11 JDK but that will be a much bigger download.

Note: To use the BAT file, you need to have the System Variables for JAVA_HOME set to the root folder of the Java 11 (Has the bin folder in it), and then the System Variables 'path' have '%JAVA_HOME%\bin' included. You can either set this manually, or install Chocolately and then run 'choco install openjdk' in your command prompt window or powershell. Interesting side note, you can install JDK 11 from oracle running 'choco install jdk11'.

LINKS:

HELP! The .exe doesn't work for me with OpenJDK.

If you have it installed correctly, you can use http://johann.loefflmann.net/en/software/jarfix/index.html to reset association for the .jar file, and that works.

NOTE: The specific files for loading PCGen are as follows:

  • pcgen.exe (Main Executable for Windows)
  • pcgen.bat (Command Line Executable for Windows)
  • pcgen.sh (Command Line Executable for Linux / Mac)
  • pcgen,jar (Java Executable file - Mac users)

Please direct all help inquires to our new Media Channels:


Re: Pathfinder Society Chronicles #pathfinder

The Chronicle sheets lst files are fairly well organized. You just need to follow the pattern already presented. But you do need some experience with LST file writing, or at least the ability to spend some time reading the help files and experimenting. I’d look at the 8th season files for an example. The first few seasons were not as clear and not as optimized as to how they are implemented.

 

There was a web page somewhere that I originally wrote that I think was on pcgen.org that had some basic information about how the PFS stuff was organized. I don’t know where that is or if that is even still available now.

 

I’m not playing Pathfinder very much anymore and I’m not playing any other RPG so I’m not drawn to work on PCGen anymore as I have no more personal interest in it. I can answer specific questions, but I’m not available as a mentor.

Mark Means was the chronicle sheet maintainer for the PSF sheets.

I helped set up the system ages ago. If you want to take a crack at it, then sure.

Thank you everyone so very much for your assistance. I’m getting my player and @caryn69 in touch.

As a side benefit to our community, @caryn69 has just very kindly created a first draft of Mac installation notes and she welcomes people to review and offer suggestions. Check out the Mac support channel on Discord if you want to look it over.

Thanks again!

Yeah, I had to roust her. She's working from home (Global Pandemic), so she was actually earning a living...

Allen,

If you go to the Discord "channel" (board) and select the mac-support topic, there are some hints and tips, and my sister would be able to help out there (she's a SysAdmin).

As has been noted, the really crucial aspect is Java installation.

IF YOUR USER HAS NOT STARTED YET, HAVE THEM WAIT FOR MY SISTER (CARYN96) AND GO TO DISCORD.

Once it's been trashed, it is almost impossible to get right (though a fix isn't too hard).

Re: [MODERATOR] Building And Modifying Constructs

Andrew Maitland
 

Again, another linked blog page for what appears to be homebrew material.

I fail to see how this relates to PCGen. Seems to be more self-promotion of homebrew materials to a very ad laden blog page. (And a very poor layout at that - Margins matter!)

Consider this a MODERATOR Warning. Posting for self-promotion and not related to the PCGen project will end up in loss of posting privileges with this project.

The purpose of these groups is to deal with PCGen related-issues. Please post your homebrew materials to more appropriate venues.

Color me confused. What is the purpose of this post?

I see no OGL listing or publisher, so it appears to be just a homebrew presentation for what I can only assume is the 3.x or pathfinder d20 systems.

Nick,

The merciful special ability is there. Like most special abilities, you have to have at least a +1 enhancement bonus on the weapon before you can add the Merciful special ability .

Re: pathfinder Initiative issue #pathfinder

Jason Dowd
 

Same type bonuses do not stack. Both Arcane Temper and Reactionary give a "trait" bonus to initiative, so only the higher one applies. So it is calculated as:
Improved Initiative      +4 (feat)
Arcane Temper           +1 (trait)
Reactionary                 +2 (trait)
-------------------------------------------
Total                             +6
