Content and Character Builder

Recommended Posts

This is a very neat builder and seems like it could be very useful for conversion games. At some point I'm planning on using a golden age of piracy game in this system and you builder looks like it will be helpful.

 

Actually a conversion from Star Wars to my homebrew fantasy setting was my inspiration for creating this in the first place. So please, do the conversion work and let me know if there is anything you feel might better support your work!

Silly question...I have one of you previous version...how does the patch update work?

 

Do I have to download the whole pkg again? or what?? I dunno...Thanks

 

That depends on what you mean by the whole package...

 

All you need to do is grab the newest JRRBuilderBeta.Date_Version.zip

 

Next, make a copy of your content folders just in case!

 

Extract the 4 zipped files into your directory and run the exe. It will automatically update any files that require an update.

 

Does that answer your question?

Yes that does help...also did you add anything for gaining xp and using it? As well as monies received? Right now I have negatives in xps from leveling and the money system is wonky to me as in some things you can buy and other you can just add w/o buying them.

 

Also I speak for everyone saying this is a cool thing and thank you for your hard work.

Yeah buying and selling needs some polish and there hasn't been any update there for a while. I'll see what I can do though since most of that framework is already in place.

 

For XP, there is an Earned XP box in the Character attributes pane. Just put any XP earned there. I could add some helpers to quick add 5, 10, or a custom value if people think they would use that.

 

And thanks for the praise, I really appreciate it.

I'm a Mac user, but this looks like it would have been awesome to use.  Good work JasonRR!

 

Thanks, I started this project as a way to do some experimenting at home and since I happen to work mostly in C# and WPF, it is, unfortunately, PC only. If you or your group finds an errant PC somewhere, I would love to hear what you think of it as you are using it.
