Another Character Generator

Recommended Posts

It isn't malware per say, it actually detects an "unknown source" so basically as a software creator you are unknown and thus untrusted.

That's because I don't have a VeriSign key, so depending on the security level, it'll flag it as suspicious.

OggDude, I don't suppose it would be possible to do a simple update to add the new combined Light/Dark Force Point icon into your character generator, would it?

I will be adding one.  It's going to be called [EITHER] :)  I couldn't think of another name.  I've already started making the changes and additions.  However, it shouldn't take me TOO long.  The only new mechanics I've added so far are the substitute-characteristic-in-skill feature for the technique talents, plus the career attribute feature.  I haven't looked over any of the new attachments, so there might be new, weird things they introduced there that I need to support.  

 

A majority of the work is actually adding the new data.  I've gotten the species (oh, new feature there, too... Cereans skill-type-as-career) added, as well as all the talents and two of the careers.  Still have my work cut out for me, though.

I'll put it to a vote.  What would YOU like the new white/black force pip to be called?  I know [EITHER] is kind of lame.  [FORCEPOINT] is good, if a little long.  Any other suggestions?

As much as I hate long [] blocks, [FORCEPOINT] is precisely what it is, and therefore gets my vote.  I mean its not that long.

I vote for [EITHER], since the context will be pretty self-explanatory, I think. It's also more explicit than [FP] and not as long as [FORCEPOINT].

How about [FPOINT]? It doesn't look as nice as FORCEPOINT, but it's a bit shorter. I know that I was getting kind of tired of typing out some of the longer words, like ADVANTAGE and when I was adding descriptions to a lot of stuff.

Hate to say this OggDude, but the none of the tools are working for me.

 

The launcher runs and is "useable", but the three tools aren't.  They start, I can see them in the Process Tab on Task Manager, but they don't progress beyond starting up.  No applications actually launch (except as I note, the Launcher).

 

This includes when specifically running them as an Admin.

 

 

 

EDIT: Note I just downloaded the Manual Install, I'll try the others tomorrow.

Did you try installing them into a new directory?

Did you try installing them into a new directory?

This was the first install, so ... yes it was in a new directory.

 

I tried the Web Installer and got this error:

Error: An error occurred trying to download 'https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/26990628/deploy/SWCharGen/SWCharGenLauncher.application'.

However it took quite a while for the installer to run... so I'm retrying the Launcher and I'll just let it run for a bit and see if it ever gets there. I only gave it 5 minutes before, it might just need more time.

Another option is to provide shorter versions of longer keys. "ADV", "PRO", "DIFF", "FP", but still have "ADVANTAGE", "PROFICIENCY", "DIFFICULTY", and "FORCEPOINT".

 

I just feel like "EITHER" doesn't give any context at all about what it means, whereas all the other keys actually use the name of what they represent.

Seems like [EITHER] is popular.  What about [PIP]?  Or is that not descriptive enough?  I like the shortness of [FP], but it's meaning might be too ambiguous.

I'd like PIP or FP. Either is kind of nebulous.

Agreed. Wouldn't mind shortened versions of those, either.

 

Another possibility (don't know how difficult it would be to implement), would be to add a button to each of the symbols we can insert, so we could just click that on the right side of the screen when entering text to shortcut past having to type out the words. Would that be something that you could do?
