Another Character Generator

@salamar_dree The Print to PDF option hadn't crossed my mind, thanks.

As for the Duplexing option; there must be a setting that gets defined in the software to allow it to be accessed. M$ Word, for example has it, but no such option in the Generator. No big deal, as you've given me a work-around.

I do like the idea of Print to PDF and then printing it from there, though. 🎆 Now to get Nitro Reader to play nice.

Thanks again!

The PDF option also has the benefit of allowing you to use other printers, as well, in the event you’re printing from a computer that doesn’t have the fonts installed.

I'm working on some encounters in the GM tools, and it appears that the print option is broken in this latest version. I've tried it with some new ones I just entered, as well as some older ones that I've printed from previous versions. The only thing it's generating is the adversaries and the vehicles. The whole description portion is completely skipped. Am I missing something here?

What do you mean by description portion?  It's working for me.

Hi.  I haven't seen the update on your webpage yet;  is there something I'm missing?  Thanks. 

Look in his about page here. You probably want the web install as that one will keep it current

Hey @OggDude,

Only just noticed it now but the Speaks Binary trinity don't follow the same formatting as the others. All your other talents are [Talent name] (Improved)/(Supreme). However, they are down in the talent section as Improved Speaks Binary and Supreme Speaks Binary, not Speaks Binary (Improved) and Speaks Binary (Supreme).

It is a minor thing but I discovered it while I was inputting a new tree.

Here are a couple screenshots with what I'm referring to. Yeah yeah yeah, I'm doing NJO.

Encounter Description.PNG

Arrival at Belkadan.pdfUnavailable

The PDF didn't come through, so I can't see what it's printing.  However, it looks like you wrote a book for the description :)  It's meant mostly for special instructions, how many minion groups to use, when certain groups enter the fight, etc., rather than a full-blown explanation of the encounter and setting.  Try cutting down the size of the description and see if that solves your problem.

Have you tried Windows 10's Cascade Windows option or right-click on icon and select Maximize or Move.  It may have opened off screen somehow

 

(Assuming using Windows. Windows 7 also has Cascade Windows option)

yeah i just tried that and i'm getting nothing it has the icon but no window in task bar. It shows the program is running and i get the Initial oggdoude 2.3.3 splash in the middle of the screen but nothing shows up. now even older versions wont show up.

Is there a central location for patch notes or do they show up in the program somewhere? Trying to find them in this thread is a pain. 

You can click on Oggdude's name on any of his links to open his profile, then click on "See Their Activity"

It shows a small sample of the post so it's easy to identify the patch notes  and link directly to the post

@Tassedar There are a couple of options in Windows to get things to show up.

Try some of these:

- Right-click the taskbar icon (as suggested above) and choose Maximize.

- Right-click the taskbar and choose "Cascade Windows" to all the open Windows (again, as suggested above).

- ALT+TAB to get into the program, use "ALT+Space" to open a menu, then "x"  to maximize from there.

- Failing that, track down the shortcut that starts the program, and set the Properties to "Run Maximized" (instead of Run Normal) for whatever equivalent is in your version.

Any of those should work. Beyond that, you may need to kill the program/task for Task Manager, and restart it .

 

Does your system have more than one monitor? Is it on and does the window show up there?

Just grasping at straws for you now...

 

Good luck!

@" "ALT+Space" to open a menu, then "x"  to maximize from there. "

I had the exact same problem.  But not only did this work, it seems to have fixed the program/laptop so the generator will display properly every time [Something a reboot wouldn't fix!]

@OggDude @Daeglan

I'm working on putting in some of the Clone stuff from CotR and RotS. What is needed to send that stuff to Oggdude? I would love to share.

I sent him a data file for rise with Jedi career and a collapse datafile with the rest of the jedi career. I am not sure if they worked as intended as he hasnt responded.
You should make a new data file and put what ever you enter into that and send it to his gmail address.

What files should I send?

@OggDude so i was looking at adding the droid vehicles as adversaries and it might be nice to be able to make vehicle adversaries that include pilot and vehicle together as a stat block

I would actually be greatly up for this, mostly because sometimes if I need to track and NPC pilot's wounds/strain, its on a different page that the vehicles Hull Trauma and System Strain is on. I think if an NPC is listed on a starship their stats should be grouped together.

 @OggDude, having a problem entering a custom vehicle. I've tried it several times and saved, but when I open up anything else to add it, it isn't there. When I re-open the Data Editor it is also missing. When I try to create it again, it is giving me Uservehicle2 like it never existed.

Another useful flag might be an ara flag on gear, ships, adversaries etc. So you can sort by era or exclude eras. 

Ie make rebellion era ships and gear not show up. Maybe make a campaign section where you set things like eras. Gm grants knight level game settings so on. 

 

You can also sort by era. Make easier to find gear that is scattered in books

A few others and I have encountered and posted about this before, as well. If you look in the DataCustom/Vehicles folder, you’ll probably find that the xml file is there. I’ve just resorted to copying the xml file to the main application Vehicles folder to make it show up.
