Re: C&C Hero Lab

and yet another update v.29

Most of the changes in this affect the Fantasy Grounds importer, like adding encumbrance values and weight, as well as a bunch of combat stuff.

Re: C&C Hero Lab

I made major changes to the way I was handling racial and class abilities as well as senses. You can either remove each offending file will start with tab_XXXX.dat (the tab_xxx files that refer to a specific class or race have been removed and made more generic) Or, blow away the whole candc directo...

Re: C&C Hero Lab

I just uploaded a new version. Please let me know if/where it's crashing.

Is there any messages?

Re: C&C Hero Lab

Please post any requests, omissions, advice that you can think of. I realized that I didn't have Senses displayed, even though I have them coded in, such as Darkvision. I've fixed this, but not sure if it's in v.25. I spent more time today with the output XML for import into Fantasy Grounds. BoomerET

Re: C&C Hero Lab

I just uploaded v.25, more accurately track HP and AC. There's also a tab for languages! The in-play tab now accurately keeps track of Hit Points. I'm working on a Windows GUI application for converting the custom xml output for input into Fantasy Grounds. The application as it currently stands is R...

Re: Future PDF product

Got a great deal from Foxit on their high-end editor for $99, couldn't resist.

That's how I found the hidden text in A1 hidden behind one of the graphics.

Re: Dwarven Forge Kickstarter 2 - Caverns

I couldn't pull the trigger on their last KS, and this time is no different. With the quality, cost and versatility of papercrafting terrain, I just don't see myself making the switch.

Re: C&C Hero Lab

Version 0.25 is now available. Hitpoints are working now, allowing you to use a typical incrementer to add the dice total. It calculates your total HP adding (or subtracting) your CON modifier per level. The in-play tab works for tracking HP as well. The FGII converter has been updated to display To...

Anyone willing to take on creating the PDF character sheet??? If you have the authoring kit, you already ...

Re: Serif PhotoPlus X5 vs. GIMP

I'm a GIMP fan for Raster images.

Inkscape for Vector.

Layout/DTP, go for Scribus.

Re: 72 hour make your own bundle!

I ship media mail, and a hardcover would be about $4 or higher.

I just recently shipped 3 softcover books, each about 25 pages, and paid $2.98 media mail.

You're always going to fail unless you have help, motivation or some combination. I had smoked for 26 years (from 1-2 packs/day). When we found out we were going to have our son, I stopped.

I did a brief search, but nothing jumped out at me. I'm reading through DB1, thinking about starting a C&C section in Realm Works. I got to the table on pg. 5, The Patrons of Dirty Bowbe's Roadhouse. The note (which incidentally is asterisked to Race, not Class) says that Monks must be of Lawful ali...
