Some updates from the previous thread: Various reports of Skill/Attribute rolls not functioning correctly: Thank you for reporting this bug, thanks to the report from Jacob S. we were able to identify the cause and bundle a solution into a large patch that is imminently forthcoming. Incorrect Skill Names in Roll Templates: This is a perennial issue that we keep thinking is resolved, only for it to rear its ugly head again. This is a component of the long overdue update I mentioned earlier, and has been added to our routine tests for each build of this sheet. Apologies for the length of time it has taken us to appropriately address this issues. Various Issues with the Charactermancer: This will be the team's next focus for Call of Cthulhu, following the big update I'm teasing in this post. The charactermancer is due some TLC, and will prove a good springboard for future charactermancer content. Please let me know if there's anything I missed. Many thanks, and happy gaming.

I'm seeing several issues when making skill rolls, is there an anticipated date for the above patch? Admittedly I am new to Roll20 so maybe doing something stupid, but I don't think so

I'm waiting for the moment in which this particular character sheet supports other ages beyond 1920s, like Modern and Dark Ages games. If that happens, I believe the sheet will gain tons of positive points by the community.

Any updates on when the patch to fix the skill/attribute rolls is going to roll out?

Hey folks, Apologies for the delay on this, but we've finally released a big update to the Call of Cthulhu 7th Edition sheet. Here's the info: Player Sheet   Refined the visual styling with new borders, fonts and reduced space wastage Relocated the Conditions and Insanities toggles, and provided new threshold values for a Major Wound and a Temporary Insanity Added 1/2 and 1/5 values for each characteristic. Added 'rollable' indicators to locations with buttons where they were not previously clear Redesigned item and spell cards to be clearer and more heuristic Old version of character sheet is on the left, new version on the right:   Rollable Indicators:   New item/spell card design:   NPC Sheet Redesigned the sheet to be more respectful of a user's screen space; presenting all the same information in about 1/4 to 1/8th the screen real estate, depending on the exact monster. Skills are now collated, and only show the specific skills the creatures have. The advanced skill panel is now concealed behind a toggle, but Keepers can enable it if they want that added functionality. Spells are also hidden behind a toggle, but easily turned on if the Keeper wants that functionality. Edit mode is easier to use, presenting all of the information without anything being concealed behind a toggle to allow keepers to see all the fields they need to create a creature. Toggling edit mode off will only display the sections with content in them. Former NPC sheet on the left, updated NPC sheet on the right:     And, the most exciting part:   Randomized NPC Stats Now, when dragging and dropping a monster to the sheet, you have the option to request for the sheet to randomize the NPC stats. This is directly from how Call of Cthulhu 7th Edition encourages you to play, and is a great way to introduce uncertainness in players!     You can toggle this setting within the NPC’s character sheet settings, or from the Game Settings page:     You’ll want the setting to be on “Query” to take advantage of this feature.

Hi there, I’m just investigating the free CoC module with The Haunting Scenario... In trying to create a character I get to occupation which says ‘No Compendium Loaded’ and steers me towards the full rule set...  Is it possible to create a character with just the free rules to try it out? Thanks, Simon Edit: On the ‘Characteristics’ section of the charactermancer the right hand page has a big ‘Page Not Found’ error... Edit: Ok, I hit the link to load the compendium, but just get an infinite spinning busy circle... Edit: I somehow added a custom...something...think it was Occupation, and managed to create a character...onwards and upwards!

I think this is a failing of the CoC sheet design.  The 5E OGL sheet for D&D allows you to create a character with the limitation that you only have access to what is in the 5E SRD - the free material released by Wizards of the Coast.  The CoC sheet does not give you the ability to create a character with Chaosium's equivalent of the SRD. That is to say, it does not allow creation of a character using the free material that Chaosium makes available. IMO, the sheet should allow you to roll a character and select one of the professions in the free material, and create a character based on the free material just like the 5E OGL sheet does. If Roll20, or Chaosium, really want people to play CoC, this is a basic thing that should be available so that people can at least try out the game system. Alternatively, all of the "free" modules should come with 3-5 pre-generated characters.

When doing damage that adds + modifier to the end of the number.  The roll sheet does not function correcly.

The sanity attributes are not calculated correctly. Max SAN (attr_sanity_max) should always be equal to 99 - Cthulhu Mythos. We could also do with a new attribute - Bout of Madness Threshold that can be set as and when the keeper sees fit - being the player's current SAN - temp insane checkmark value. should be

2 Questions re Character Sheet 1) I'm noting this error (previously reported by Peter B., in general on the link below) when I add an API.&nbsp; Can this be fixed? "SyntaxError: Unexpected token '.'"

How do I remove / delete a weapon or skill once added to a sheet? <a href="https://i.imgur.com/6ZCqgA2.png" rel="nofollow">https://i.imgur.com/6ZCqgA2.png</a> If this is impossible I would like to know how to refund purchases through Roll20, I have never had to do so, but I am super unhappy with the quality and usability of CoC's sheet.

So if it's the NPC Sheet add the + followed by a Space then the modifier, I added it like that and it worked fine. Aniond disse: Ao causar dano, isso adiciona + modificador ao final do número. A folha de rolo não funciona corretamente.&nbsp;&nbsp;

You can reorder them yes but no button to delete the entry appears which makes managing the inventory, skills and indeed most things pretty much impossible at the moment. This urgently needs fixing IMO.

What may not be obvious is that at the top right of the character sheet there is a slider button marked "Edit".&nbsp; You have to click that first before you can edit the sheet. Once you click that button, you should see a lock button below the list items. Once you click that, you can move or delete items in the list. This works fine for me...&nbsp; Jason T. said: Kraynic said: Jason T. said: How do I remove / delete a weapon or skill once added to a sheet? <a href="https://i.imgur.com/6ZCqgA2.png" rel="nofollow">https://i.imgur.com/6ZCqgA2.png</a> If this is impossible I would like to know how to refund purchases through Roll20, I have never had to do so, but I am super unhappy with the quality and usability of CoC's sheet.

I'm liking the new changes to the character sheet quite a bit, but I'd love to get an answer to this issue.&nbsp; To be clear, this is not a problem that's reared its head with the newest sheet, but it is mildly annoying and continues with the latest version. Character sheet template is definitely set to "Call of Cthulhu 7th Edition by Roll20". Under campaign settings, I have Roll Behavior set to "No Bonus/Penalty Dice". Under "My Settings", all players have the following items toggled on (checked):&nbsp;Enable advanced dice (dice icons, drag and drop, etc.),&nbsp;Enable 3D dice,&nbsp;Automatically roll 3D dice. When rolling and regardless of whether the player achieves success, 4 dice roll on the screen.&nbsp; Two of the dice always add up to the same number in the chat window, and two are seemingly random.&nbsp; Also, two of the dice are the tens place, and two of the dice are the ones place. Ex. Player rolls a Spot Hidden and has a 60% chance of success.&nbsp; The dice that appear on the screen are as follows: 60, 00, 8, 4.&nbsp; The chat window indicates failure; the Player has rolled a 68%. I'm either misinterpreting something, have something toggled incorrectly, or I'm totally missing something.&nbsp; It occurs to me that if the character was made under a different version of the sheet, or if I originally had the Roll Behavior set to something besides&nbsp; "No Bonus/Penalty Dice", it might be holding onto an old setting.&nbsp; I simply don't remember if I've changed Roll Behavior along the way though.&nbsp; I'd say it's likely I did during troubleshooting. Appreciate your thoughts.

Thanks to Nic B and the team for all the work done on the Call of Cthulhu sheets.

I've read somewhere that the 7th ed Roll20 guide ($54) has drag and drop/import mechanics. Is this compatible with the Invictus character sheet?&nbsp; Not much point in purchasing it if I still have to manually create all the various entities.

Hey folks, apologies for the slow response to this; a small merge artifact went unnoticed and was breaking CoC repeating sections for some browsers. We've just patched this, so that this functionality should be reinstated. Additionally, we resolved a z-indexing bug on the character sheets that was making it hard to target some inputs.

@Coryphon: I think Roll20 broke something when they did their weekly update. I'm seeing the same error in a 5E game so it's not specific to the CoC game. Not sure what's broken but it doesn't seem to have had any effect on any of my scripts for my 5E game tonight.

Loving the new sheet. Before I put in a ticket, I wanted to make the sheet should be doing what I expect. I have ROLL NPC STATS TOGGLE set alternately to &lt;Query&gt; and &lt;On&gt;; I detect no change in the sheet behavior with either setting when I drag an NPC from the Compendium (tested with Ghould and Byakhee). Should it be randomizing the stats under these conditions, and if so has that feature not been implemented yet or (more probable) am I missing something?
I had gotten the same thing. I haven't checked in a while however.

I'm not sure how I could get more specific to elicit a response from someone in the know, but I'm happy to provide more information or troubleshoot suggestions.&nbsp; If I'm in the minority and it's happening to only a few of us, that's useful information, too.

Is there any way of customising the headers or names of fields in the sheet? For example if i wanted to call electrical repair something else? i really like the how the game feels mechanically but want to change the setting

The character sheet looks lovely, but can you please fix the damage calculations, they make using the combat rolls unusable and funny, which it is not. this is a real shame because it looks beautifuil and has had a lot effort put into it, but let down by some basics. example, the damage is setup to be: "2d6+ 2" (spacing to correct another bug) and the calculated result is: "Rolling 122 + 2d6+ 2 = 122+(6+5)+2" (spaces are as shown, ie "2d6+ 2")
1631306130

Edited 1631306231
I can see where the bug is in the impale or extreme success damage. if the damage calculation is: "2d6+ 2" (spacing to correct another bug) the the extreme damage is 122: "Rolling 122 + 2d6+ 2 = 122+(6+5)+2" if the damage calculation is: "3d6+ 2" then the extreme damage is 198: "Rolling 182 + 2d6+ 2 = 182+(2+6+6)+2" So the macro for the formula is calculating the d6 value correctly ie for 2d6 is has a 12 and for 3d6 an 18. But it does not add the + 2, instead it appends the 2.&nbsp; ie not 12 + 2 but instead string.join(12).join(2). so 2d6+ 2 becomes "12" + "2" and not 12 + 2 and 3d6+ 2 becomes "18" +"2" and not 18 + 2
