  • 05:24 PM - Morrus mentioned ForgedAnvil in post Downloads updates - PWYW/Donations, Comments
    A couple of updates about to come to the downloads section which I hope makes them more useful for folks. 1) In your settings, add your PayPal email address. If you do that, a "Donate" button will magically appear on all your downloads. The money goes directly to you; I'm not taking commission or anything. Find the setting here. 2) The Comments tab and the automatic thread which is created with a download are now the same thing. Alerting some of the top download authors to this: ForgedAnvil, morepurplemorebetter, WastingX, MadBeard, PeterFitz, elSwitchblade.

    @ForgedAnvil I may be too late with this reply, and you may already have done a bunch of work on the 1.64->2.00 transfer tool already. As one of your biggest fans, I will say that it is not necessary (from my point of view). Transfer tools are great and help me keep updated fro all incremental changes. But when you make big changes 1.0->2.0->3.0 etc, I do not expect full backward compatibility. In fact Nintendo attempted just that, and it kept them back as far as technology was concerned. I am totally cool with redoing the sheet for every major iteration. Feel free to reinvent for major versions, and don't be held back. :) Anyway, keep up the awesome work.

    This is an interim release for those who would like to start testing some of the Xanathar's content Currently the new Cleric, Fighter and Warlock Hexblade subclasses have been implemented, the Barbarian Storm Herald is wip and some feats have been implemented but also wip. Appreciate those who are keen to help out to review these and let me know of any issues or missing content - there are some areas like the Active Features that need review as well. Detailed feedback is appreciated. Thanks to everyone who provides feedback to refine and improve this character generator, keep the bug fixes and awesome ideas coming As always have fun! Cheers ForgedAnvil I have the 2.7 version, I guess there was one more version released that I missed, 2.8. Does 2.28 include XGtE? v2.28 was a beta. As you can see from the above quote that only a few things were added to v2.28 and during its short life there were bugs that were being discovered and fixed (a few new bugs caused issues that were not present in v2.28).

    Naming shouldn't affect the images in the file. First thing is to check for Excel updates. For Windows its under File > Account > Office Upates > Update Now. You can try a new download and import your character to test if the images stay fixed Major update for Excel (all of Office actually) available, I will update Office and I may as well update my MacOS too. I'll let you know if that solved the problem. The behaviour is very weird, I had the sheet open yesterday and the Character tab was fine but the images were messed up on the data entry tab. Other times it is reversed!

    Check for Excel updates, not sure where it is in Excel 2007, for Excel 2010 and over it is under File > Account > Office Upates > Update Now. If that doesn't work try to repair office under Settings > Apps > Apps and features then select Mjcrosoft Office and choose Modify. Online Repair is the better of the 2 options. FYI for Mickey Flint, support and updates for Excel 2007 ended Oct 10, 2017.

    What version of Windows and Excel are you using? Ensure you check uodates for both OS and Excel. You may also want to try 2.28 beta in the downloads section and test the same. I am getting that unreadable error on both 2.27 and 2.28. Its baffling and becoming quite frustrating!

    Change / Clear Arcana from the Start sheet under Expertise The reset option apparently doesn't clear this expertise. Other bug I noticed, if multi-classing into Ranger, Sorcerer, or Warlock (single classed characters seems fine), the pull down to select the subclass does not show the available options, but typing it in will select it as normal. Thank you for your work, it is much appreciated. EDIT: this is in reference to the new beta sheet. EDIT2: Also apparently if multi-classing into Paladin, the subclasses of Vengeance and the Ancients don't show up but do show up if the character starts as a Paladin at level 1.

    Thanks. Fixed in next beta version, it's a minor issue related to generating a selection list for subclasses of fighter. You can continue to test and the tool should function as intended. Did you use the Reset function to clear the data - there was a minor issue with maneuvers 10 and 11 cells aren't merged that's been fixed. Let me know if you find other issues with resetting / importing Forged, I didn't use the reset function. I manually cleared everything out. I will try the reset button as I test the info for the classes that you added. On another note as it relates to the fighter subclasses. Some of the fighter subclasses are missing in this version of the beta. Will those missing classes return with the fix you implemented on the issue I found?

    A minor update for everyone. The tool is still being worked on, I've been very busy with work schedule, business travel and end of year. Currently adding subclasses and there are many with a lot of new abilities that need additional design element to be implemented. It's a slow process and there are a lot subclasses that have been added, so there are many checks to see if the implementation is working as intended. Some spells have been added but still a lot of work to do there. As for a release date, the "full" updated version I cant give any exact dates. What is possible is to release minor "preview" versions for people to test, for example if the cleric and fighter subclasses implemented this can be released for people to give feedback and fixing bugs - then next could be rogue and wizard, etc. Thoughts? These release previews would be considered "beta" and wouldn't intend to transfer and work 100%, they would be purely used to play around with whilst the final version is being worked on. Prev...

    if you're running windows 10 try the default PDF printer to check the print preview and print layout. You can select multiple sheets by holding CTRL and selecting the sheets you want to print. My guess you have a printer driver issue if the if the inbuilt PDF printer is working but your physical printout is not. Try updating / reinstalling print driver. I used to have the same type of issue. I know just view a sheet and then print just that sheet, it works better that way.

    Use Armor Class Base and mention in the race features the natural armor details Once I get home from work, Iíll send it to you. The only issue I had was it seems the Tortle has proficiency in unarmored strike (claw) and could not enter that in. Sent from my iPhone using EN World mobile app

    If you have set up the Race in the custom worksheet PM me and I can add it to the generator... ForgedAnvil, I have the new Warlock subclass, The Celestial, all input as a custom subclass if you want me to send it to you. I tried to PM you but don't have enough posts yet. :)

    CharacterEquipmentPackList is an array of values, only used as a dropdown list for data validation - will return a #value!. The other 2 variables should return a defined value based on the values entered in the start sheet for Starting Equipment & Coinage. Note that if "gp", for example, is used under gems and jewelry for the total value and you translate the file then any gems and jewelry will need to be updated to the equivalent "gp" translation in the total value column. Forged Anvil, Is there any sort of documentation that would let someone easily figure out where issues like that come from? I never would have guessed that failing to put a coin type for the value of a gem would have caused that sort of error. For that matter, have you considered defaulting that value to 'gp' if it is blank so that error won't show up again?
