@OggDude when I put the dragoon blaster pistol on a wrist mount and add the force attuned resonator with the mod for inate talent prescient shot and it doesn't add the extra boost die from prescient shot.  Is that because it does not apply if the target is immune to force powers?

Normally bonuses are only added when they apply to all rolls.

Possible bug report; the checkbox for weapons that lists something as "this weapon is ordinance, vehicle only" seems to be broken. When i check it, weapons stop showing up to be added to vehicles.

Possible bug (or me just not using it correctly)

The Obligation value does not allow for correct purchase of benefit: I have 10 obligation but I am not allowed to buy either +10 xp or +2500 credits.

You have to set the Party starting obligation size. Obligation can't be more than double your starting obligation size.

@OggDude  for armor insert that have been modded to increase defense, i think that the set defense base mod is being incorrectly applied after the mod to increase defense, because that mod doesn't seem to do anything.  

there is also a dev ruling that the becomes armor insert clause means the entire stat block is replaced (any special properties the clothing had is lost, it has 3 enc, 1 hp, etc.) it's probably in the dev answered questions thread.

sorry if this has been asked and answered but I used multiple machines and was wondering if there's a way to install this into Google Drive (or similar) so that I have one single-source that I can use no matter which machine I'm on?  thanks in advance!

I made a folder in OneDrive and point the Data Path to that on all of the machines I have the character generator installed on. I think it would fine with google drive as well.

After looking at the app again, I have noticed that there is no item/option to add a workshop. Also, the only option added by the Astromech Droid Socket is the Auto-eject option.

So, where would I find/add in the option for something like a Medbay with Bacta tank to a ship/vehicle? I'm just lost now...

You cannot add them directly through the Character Generator itself.

You need to go to GM Tools, then Groups, and start a group with only your character in it. In the window of options for that group, go to the Bases section, and then select 'New'. There is a drop-down option with base options - you want 'Shipboard Workshop'. You'll want a 'Cybernetics Shop' for the medical bay, and a 'Repair shop' for the droid bay.

Hello everyone,

I'm finding the character generator to be as wonderful as everyone else appears to, so thank you Oggdude.

My problem is that despite entering all the data I want into the Editor in "Edit Description" and it all looking great in "Preview", for some reason both characteristics and skills refuse to appear in the actual generator.  Everything else I edit seems to appear just as it should.  I can't figure out why these two elements resolutely don't show up!

Problem is, I'm a bit crap at this sort of thing and I don't know where to start in order to figure it out!  Any advice would be very welcome.

Thanks all,

Rob

you have to close and reopen the character generator for anything to show up. as launching the generator is when new data is read in.

Also make sure you hit save on the editor. otherwise your changes wont stick.

Hi, no I’ve shut down and opened the data editor and the character generator any number of times. 

There actually isn’t an option to save as such, is there? Backup isn’t quite the same thing. 

I’ve included a grab of the editor (with astrogation skill) and the same skill as displayed in the character generator. 

Im so close to getting the character sheets of my dreams! Thanks for any advice. 

Cheers.

@Takeshi Yamato Thanks for the walk-through! It is greatly appreciated!

Something that I'd love to see, is being able to add these as "Attachments" to a ship (stock or specific). Maybe even allow for a custom attachment (like a Med bay with a Bacta tank).

Maybe I'm just dreaming at this point, but that would be very helpful, too. Being able to add effect die to a roll on an attachment, too. (Well-equipped: adding an Advantage, or maybe up to 2 boost dice to applicable checks)

Ah, so many ideas, and no code-fu... What is a droid to do?

@player2784035 Click on the Options button in the Character Generator portion and make sure there is a checkmark next to the datasets that you added/edited.

I am not at home so I can't include a screenshot but if you add new datasets from the web, you have to tell the program to use them under options

OK, I will take a look at it when I get home.  I know I had an issue with that when I first started editing everything but I've forgotten what I did to fix it

Where exactly were you expecting the descriptions of skills and characteristics to show up.... there's not really a place for them to be displayed on the character sheet so I'm guessing ogg dude didn't put the connection in to the generator either.

Ahem ... yes, so I realised that about an hour ago, around the same time I started to feel silly for asking, in fact....

Thanks for taking the time to take a look at my silly query, everyone. Told you I had no idea what I was talking about ...

Hi,

I've got an issue with the print preview
It stops working at page two.
Not every of my characters is affected.
Maybe somebody has a hint, where I can find the error.

Clear the cache and restart the generator. That is a first step to troubleshootimg

I have this same issue.

The descriptions worked for a while. When Age of Rebellion added in Knowledge (Warfare), OCD me expanded on the descriptions a friend had typed in for all the other skills. After that, the descriptions stopped working for all but 8 of the skills.

Someone suggested exporting or backing up the dataset, deleting and reinstalling the program, then re-importing the data set. I am paranoid to do such things as one of my users (possibly me), keeps wiping out swaths of data that we have input over the years.
