Wow, I have not looked at this since the first month... it is AHH-Mazing now. Nice work.

 

I love the customizations in here and the statblock export is crazy useful for Roll20.  I am going to start using this for everything.

Cool, glad you like it.  Yeah, lots of changes in the last year.  And more coming up for F&D :)

I have it set to x86.  I hate to change it to "Any CPU" just in case people have issues with it :)

That might be doing it. I don't know enough about that end of computing...

As for changing it, don't on my account. I've an ancient creaky old tub of a computer (I think the motherboard and cpu are pushing 10+ years) so I'm well past due to upgrade.

The only issue I have is being unable to turn off the unofficial items. For example, the Arc Welder that comes as a free weapon for a droid when you select the Astromech 'subspecies', or the Protective Goggles that I have been unable to locate in any of my books. I can uncheck all the books but one core book and these items still persist.

The arc welder actually belongs to the adversary astromech in the CRB, so I thought it would be fun to add it as a sub-species weapon for a PC astromech.  The protective goggles can be found with Defel adversaries, and are added in case you create a Defel PC from the USM.

Oggy,

Good thing you cleared that up. He cried for like a week on Reddit whenever someone suggested your character generator as an answer to a character sheet he wanted. He was very rude to anyone that suggested it and would not let go of the "this is homebrew!" flag he was waving. (this is referring to XNtr3k)

I'm getting an error when I try to run the web inbstall saying it's "already installed from a different location". I've uninstalled the program via the windows uninstall, I've scoured my hard drive and my registry for copies of the program or references to it, and I'm still getting the error. After doing all that, I even restarted by computer, for good measure. At this point, I'm totally lost. I'm able to use the manual install fine, but prefer to use the web install.

 

Here are the error details, if that helps.

 

Thanks!

I had that. It either was installed using the other version(Dropbox or Google drive) or just needs un installed and reinstalled.

I can not wait for Force and Destiny to be loaded into the generator. OggDude did you get a copy of the book at GenCon? Or are you waiting like the rest of us?

I hope you have a copy and we will see it in the generator soon a I want to start to beta test as soon as possible. I could add some content myself but with new rules like morality I am waiting for the official update

Ogg, simply amazing work.  I hadn't looked back here for a few months and am so happy that your continuing work on this.  It makes my groups games so much more streamlined and enjoyable.  Thank you!

Sorry if this is already covered in the thread; I went back a few pages but couldn't see it.

Is there any way of getting this to work on a Mac?

Thanks

I don't believe so, beyond installing Windows on the Mac and switching over to it.

 

I have a PC but I use Chrome Remote Desktop to access my PC from my Mac's browser (so I can do things like edit characters remotely or at work). But that does require having the PC in the first place.

 

I wish there was a Mac version!

If you run a virtual machine with windows on it. yes. otherwise no. Ogg does not do Mac programming.

Thanks, guys. Might see if I can convert it with Wine Bottler... http://winebottler.kronenberg.org

I'll let you know if I have any success.

you should do some searching through the thread. Oggdude does mention some windows technology it needs. i think activex 4. or some such.

dotNet Framework 4, I think. The Wine Bottler site claims to provide it, so hopefully it'll work.

One question/suggestion... it would be nice to have a color sheet that looks like the Grayscale one. I would like a color sheet but dislike the very distracting datapad thing

When making a human character vigilance and perception are not in the list of non career skills available.

I should have been a bit more clear since the dice pools are in color. I am meaning one that looks more like the official sheets with the color boxes, etc and not like the Beginner Game folios.

Daeglan,
Are they part of your career or specialization skills? I know I've looked for skills under the human list only to find out they were part of the career I'd selected....
