Fixed a minor bug with deleting the first entry (Thanks&nbsp; vÍnce&nbsp; )

This is a great update! I've been using your original !act script along with the !aict &nbsp;'hidden turn order' script. Are you planning on including the 'invisible' custom turn item in this script? It would be great if it could be included as another argument like '--hidden'. Thanks for all the incredible scripts you create!

Indeed I am! &nbsp;This was just step one, the code is ready for me to add the invisible ones shortly. =D
This is great! Just added it and have it doing everything I hoped for.

Great!
Awesome. Can duration be a formula such a @{selected|Level}*10 ? I've had issues with the orig !act command trying formulas for the starting count number.

You can use formulas if you put them in an inline roll: !act -1 [[&nbsp; @{selected|Level}*10 ]] --Holding your breath

Apparently the inline roll trick doesn't work in powercards. Sigh. Neither does the delete on 0. The Aaron said: You can use formulas if you put them in an inline roll: !act -1 [[&nbsp; @{selected|Level}*10 ]] --Holding your breath

I don't use powercards, but can you post the command you're trying to use and maybe we can figure out how to get it working for you?
--api_act|-1 [[ @{selected|Level}*10 ]] _delete-on-zero _Bless

AddCustomTurn is now in the 1-click installs!
1625673420
Yep I used the one click to install it works great!&nbsp; I have a question? Is there a way to add an icon or change the tracker color for custom turn markers?
1625674325

Not yet, but there will be when I integrate AddCustomImageTurn into this.
Well I did figure out that you can do random or formulaic durations in powercards if you use it as a roll reference. !power {{ --roll|[[ [$Turn] 1d8 ]] --api_act|-1 [^Turn] _delete-on-zero _Bless }} But I still can't get delete-on-zero to work in powercards.

Hmm.&nbsp; I just copy/pasted what you put above and it seems to have worked for me?

Are you using the version in the 1-click?
I am. Maybe one of the other scripts is interfering. But at least I can have varied duration. The Aaron said: Are you using the version in the 1-click?

Edited 1625683951
Just to clarify, the only part that doesn't seem to work for me is the delete on zero.

I know im not thew first one to ask (i saw someone on Nick Olivos channel ask the same thing on the ACT counter video) but is there any way to add the counter at the end of the turn tracker without manualy entering the number of elements in it?&nbsp; I always loved this piece of work of yours since the act counter but never was able to use it since puting the element at the front of the turn tracker messes up a lot of things for me since combat based&nbsp; api's like Combatmaster care about order and whats on top, have something new apear at the top messes up the counters on conditions, the turn highlighter image, etc. The --after function doesnt quite do it since most effects in DND end at the beggining of your turn after the X amount of rounds and since putting it at the top isnt usefull at least for me the very bottom is the best solution, in fact thats the way roll20 adds custom elements. I sorry to bother about such thing but I LOVE THIS SO MUCH and i really really want to use it. Also just out of curiosity is the whats the main purpose of the --after? like I understand it puts it after the current turn but why? is there any effect/spell that you had in mind when developing this? Thank you your the best Aaron!!!

Not explicitly, but if you do: !act -1 10 --Bless --index 10000 it will be at the end unless you're combats are really, REALLY complicated. In my own games, we used --after for players adding their own spell durations.&nbsp; We like to have them listed after the character that cast them, so we would always end up manually moving them.

The instructions say:&nbsp; --index &lt;number&gt; &nbsp;-- adds the custom turn after the entry at index But that's really a simplification.&nbsp; It's actually the index to insert the entry into, 0-biased. A 0 inserts it as the zeroth element of the turn order, which is first, a 1 inserts it as "oneth" element, or in the second slot.&nbsp; It's easier for most people to think of this as "after the first element".&nbsp; inserting it at the 10000th position just means all the intervening positions are ignored and it ends up as the last position, assuming you have fewer than 10,000 entries already. And really, that's actually a bit of a simplification, it's technically the position at which the turn order array is split, with one part put before the new entry and one part after, but that's just splitting hairs... =D

Also, that's a great point on the "ends at the beginning of your turn", I should put some thought into the implications of that and some possible enhancements to AddCustomTurn...

Just saw this thread, looks great, thank you! Have you considered an option to post something to chat when an item expires, like “Bless on Bob has ended”? It would make effect endings more obvious vs. noticing that something is no longer in the turn order. Allowing customizing the ending message might be nice (including allowing API calls to TokenMod? ;-) ), but isn’t required.

That's a great idea! &nbsp;I could pull in some logic from OnMyTurn to handle the commands. Hmmm...

Is there a way to remove a token marker when the turn expires ?&nbsp;

You could do that with OnMyTurn and TokeMod, I believe.&nbsp;

If you put a COUNTER to start with -1 and for each next turn remove -1 (-1,-2,-3,-4,...) AND if there is ANOTHER COUNTER to be removed when reaching a value (ex. : starts with 6 and ends with 0) that is just before TurnOrder, after being removed (ANOTHER COUNTER) it ignores the effect of removing -1.
1631071080
Imagine the situation: Combat starts, we are in Turn 1 (in the image would be -1). On the PERSONA turn he will use a Spell that will go into Cooldown with 6 Turns. (Note that I need to put it to start with 7 because as soon as it hits the Counter, it already removes 1.)
1631071267
This is the beginning of the second turn (-2), after passing PERSONA's Turn and the Spell COUNTER, the Turns will be counted (starts with 6 and goes to 0). In my System, the cooldown of spells doesn't count the "own turn it was used". So the next turn PERSONA could use this same spell would be turn 8 (-8)
1631071469
It works perfectly for this purpose, but when it reaches Turn 7 (-7), the ideal would be that when it arrives at CD-Magia One it removes 1 and for reaching 0, it is removed.
1631071589
And he removes the CD-Magic One, but because it's right before the Turn Counter (-7) he FORCES the Turn Counter to be next on the Turn Order, but doesn't make the -1 so it becomes -8. Is this a bug or is it supposed to work like this? In the next image I "passed" the turn but it had no effect (-1, make -7 into -8)

This is a bug. What's happening is the removal of the entry is not being interpreted as a turn change. It should be an easy fix, I'll take a look.&nbsp;

Is this a bug or is it supposed to work like this? In the next image I "passed" the turn but it had no effect (-1, make -7 into -8) You can create a new turn: Fin de turno (0) as a work arround to keep the turn change on the counter, I guess.

I think I can solve the problem, but my fear is that there will be so many small adjustments that it becomes impossible to read TurnOrder because I have so much information. In my system a single character can have multiple effects or cast multiple spells that have their own duration and cooldown. I created the post to see if it is not a bug type, because if there is another counter other than the "Contador de Turno", any marker that is deleted when reaching zero will prevent the next one (if any) from making the calculations.

You may want to look into using the&nbsp; Stylus browser extension to adjust the Turn Tracker and make it smaller . I find it helps when there are a lot of items on the tracker.

is there a way i can use this to automate the Shadowrun 2 inititive system? basically i need something that adds someone to the initiative several times at increments of -10 of their original roll but where it doesn't go below 0. so if they got 23 they'd be added at 13 and 3 as well. At first i thought using this but with the increment being lowered by 10 after the players turn then you'd just have to resort the turn order but the issue with that is they need to stay in at their higher roll as well for following rounds. the ideal is that a roll query asks them what their initiative roll was then adds their name to the turn order with maybe a #1, #2 etc after for each increment. any ideas how i could do this?

Look at SR-NextPass in the One-Click API Scripts.&nbsp; The GM runs it at the end of a round (but you could add an OnMyTurn character to run it for you once per round), and it deducts 10 from each entry's turn, removing those that fall to 0 or below.&nbsp; When the turn order is empty, you roll everyone in again.
