NopeDK said: Aah, thanks, first time I have encountered that peculiarity. It first came up when we introduced iterative attacks.  It has something to do with the sheer number of inline rolls being made, and the way roll templates handle them.  Hope you get it worked out.  Cheers

Is there an option so that macros (e.g., attacks) display the token name rather than the character name? In general, I prefer the token name to be displayed rather than the character name, especially for NPCs, since the character name will often be something generic. e.g. "Commoner 1" might be the character, but "Bob" and "Dug" might be the tokens, and that is what I'd prefer for players to see. It's especially important if the character is "Assassin 3" or "Faceless Stalker" and the token says something a lot more benign... It's also useful for NPC whispered chat output, since then I as GM can tell which message came from which token. Thanks.

we'll see, when creating an ability macro i think you can. We are working on an API companion that might be the place to do that. making an ability token action you can change the name like this: %{selected|attacks} {{character_name=@{selected|token_name}}} which works. just by putting the re-set of character_name after the call to the macro. that is an option we can put in the api companion we are working on. otherwise... maybe can put an option in the sheet too, (though if checked would just print garbage if the sheet is not linked.)
Long time no type from me! But I come with a request as this is a difficult thing to emulate on the sheet currently. There are several races like Kobold, Oread, Ifrit, etc that have the treat Charisma as two higher for Sorcerer stuff. "Kobold sorcerers with the draconic bloodline or kobold bloodline ( Advanced Race Guide 134) treat their Charisma scores as 2 points higher for all sorcerer spells and class abilities. This racial trait replaces the armor trait." I was wondering if this was possible to incorporate into the sheet? It'd make it so much easier for me.
Small bug when using size modifiers on attacks, when you create a new attack it has use size checked but doesn't seem to enable it, you need to uncheck and recheck for it to work.  Thanks for all the hard work on the sheet!

I've added instructions on importing characters from Hero Lab to the character sheet's wiki page that are a bit more detailed than the instructions on the sheet, and also include a few known issues. For those who want to name token actions with the same name as the character sheet's ability names, I should point out that Roll20 will render HTML entities in the ability name, so if you name it something like "⁠Abilities", the name on the button will look like "Abilities", but since the name is technically different, it won't cause name collision issues.

I love how your quote not only changed the numbering, but also lost the HTML entity. :P EDIT: Should also mention, the "⁠" will probably disappear from the character sheet if you refresh the Roll20 browser (much like it disappeared from that quote), but the character it represents is still there, so don't worry about it.

Hi.  For the life of me, I can't figure out how to simply rearrange my Feats in the list when I open the modify menu.  Delete works fine.  Hovering over the file manager button (or whatever it is called) turns my mouse pointer into a four-way arrow icon, but dragging them does nothing.  This is only a big deal on the template character sheet I keep for monsters' feats and abilities.  It would be nice, for example, to have all the Energy Resistance types grouped together on the list, so I can find them quickly.  Some things I'd like to be able to move to the top of the list because they come up more often in my current campaign.  Etc. I thought maybe this was a browser thing, and maybe it is.  I run Chrome typically. Also, as long as I'm on the topic of a template character sheet -  It's utterly amazing and awesome that I can drag and drop monsters right into the sheet now.  The only catch is - my group has a conjuration specialist, who has Augment Summoning, celestial creatures, and so on.  So I keep a template sheet with those adjustments. Maybe for the future, it might be an idea for NPC sheets (or character sheets) to be able to select abilities as one selects conditions.  Celestial, Darkvision, Fire Resistance, Undead Traits, etc. Lastly - How about a Spawn Monster API?  When I want to spawn a goblin, for example, I have to drag a token, then unlink the bars, the rename it Goblin 1.  Lather, rinse, repeat.  Could a script be made to do those things?  Just hit that Spawn Goon button, or whatever, and out pops a token named Goblin1, Goblin2, etc. with the bars populated but already unlinked? I really feel like having abilities available to select for the drag and drops and a Spawn Goon button would be a couple of really nice final touches that would save so much play time.  I could make 6 Celestial Eagles appear on demand. Impromptu monsters like that remain a serious game stopping issue for me. Also, as long as I'm daydreaming, I guess - How about the ability to pull in PC Gen characters? Amazing, amazing work on the sheet.  Thanks so much for making it.  Cheers!

Robert, make sure you do not have your sheet popped out when you try re-arranging repeating items. Also, monster templates sound cool...  For now you might be able to use a script like ChatSetAttr to apply attribute changes on the fly.

Robert B. said: Maybe for the future, it might be an idea for NPC sheets (or character sheets) to be able to select abilities as one selects conditions.  Celestial, Darkvision, Fire Resistance, Undead Traits, etc. i was thinking for some of the monster / Type traits of adding those in during the parsing. For instance right now checking "is undead" only updates the hp calculation to use CHA, but it could also add the other things like "immune to mind affecting" in either special defenses or save notes. I was thinking this for the "Traits" like Ooze traits (Bestiary 6 has lots of oozes! ) , Undead Traits, etc. i guess adding a dropdown would just be one step more after doing the above to add to any char. same for simple templates, it's come up. though .. maybe some of that should be in the API, just to not make the sheet too big and cumbersome. The sheet is pretty slow and needs to be faster.  though i also thought, having all of those as entries in a list seems almost overkill, a big textbox usually is enough. might make it faster too.

Howdy! I've found a rather old problem has resurfaced. All of my class skill bonuses in the un-editable box are 0, so clicking the class skill box doesn't add anything to the skill total. I'm on v 1.5, the class name field is not an actual class. I'm not sure how to fix the problem.

For some silly reason I had the custom/investigator dice INSIDE the query for take 10/20, instead of outside (since it just adds, no reason it needs to be inside). Moving it to outside of the query allows you to use a query in that field. In addition I "simplified" it in a way,so the investigator add dice is separate from a purely custom roll. Having to select custom twice was too funky I think it makes more sense now. (but existing sheets won't break, since it just adds the resulting field values together)

Jason H. said: I'm sorry if you already know this, but still under 1.5, going into "> Set Buffs", creating a buff that affects attack and damage, and then checking the Enabled box does not affect any of the values under the Attacks tab, nor does it affect the buffs summary box over "> Set Buffs". Use the pop-out button for your character sheet to have it in its own window then go to the Abilities & Attributes tab. Since you are in a separate window, you can use CTRL-F to search the attributes. Search for "buff_" and delete those that end in "-total". When done, go back to your sheet and hit the recalc button.
Hi all, I apologize if this has been answered elsewhere, but after searching this thread and others I wasn't able to find the solution to my issue. My character is currently running around equipped with armor and a shield, but just picked up an Amulet of Natural Armor +1. I know how to make the item appear in my neck slot, but I cannot figure out how to make it give me the +1 bonus to AC without making it either my armor or shield. I like to automate things, so I'd rather not just make a special buff for it or make it a unique modifier somewhere else. Please help!

We currently do not have types of AC in buffs(this may happen in a future update...), but Creating a buff for Amulet of Natural Armor +1 with a  +1 AC is probably not a bad idea.  You can also use the Natural column on the Defenses page|Defense Values to add a bonus for Natural armor.

I seem to have a issue with the insanity scores from the new update. The threshold works properly and the score seems to calculate but it displays a = amount of sanity damage in the expanded boxes making the effective sanity score 0 what am I doing wrong or is this just a bug? All I have done so far is enable the fields in the settings tab and select the correct mental stat for threshold.

Yes the sanity damage score is wrong, and the roll printout is messed up. But the beta should be working and it will come out in a few days. You can check it at the beta campaign (link at top of sheet), try setting it on a character and make sure it works.

Happy to do it, it's been an interesting journey :) With regards to the beta API code. There are some known issues: Applying buffs/conditions: the buff or condition is activated, but we are still working on getting a given effect to fully propagate throughout the sheet Statblock parsing:&nbsp; DO NOT attempt to parse Lucifer, Prince of Darkness from pfsrd. He is just too large, and will almost certainly crash your script environment by triggering an infinite loop error. While the script supports importing of multiple statblocks with a single command, limit how many creatures you import at a given time as the time it takes to import increases non-linearly (especially if they cast spells). I would recommend waiting to install the script until I upload the next version of the beta as some of the syntax for how resource tracking is handled will be changed.
Can we get either a link to a thread/wiki where the API Companion Script is described in what it does exactly, or a description of the API Companion Script itself here? I ask, because I have never used API before and am curious.

I just added a small readme.md to the repo. but Scott can fill it out more, since I have not tested it much yet. All i really know is to type !pfc --help and it will popup some things you can do. I know it will create ability macros on the token so you can have token macros when it is selected. And it will parse statblocks from PRD/SRD pasted into the GM Notes (just like if you used CreatureGen in the past , but compatible with our sheet)

Sure, once the script is released, there will be an independent thread for it, but until then here's a screencap of the feature list progress: And the current help menu document: Companion API Script vPrototype 0.083 Current macro setup, auto attribute handling and command syntax: Automatic Attribute Handling HP & Temp HP: If this option is enabled in the config menu health deducted from a character's HP will be deducted from their temp hp first before being applied to their HP. Note this will not work with API applied HP changes (other than those caused by this script). Macro Setup Weapons: Weapons can be setup to track ammo usage (according to # of attacks used, including usage of manyshot), other item usage, spell usage, ability usage, and custom attribute usage. Ammo Tracking: Setting the ammo field of a weapon to anything besides 1 tells the script that that weapon uses ammo. The script willgenerate the following field in the macro text of the weapon: ||ammo=?{Name of Ammunition Item}|| . After the first time you answer this query, it will be replaced with your response.You can also manually put a different query in here to be prompted for what ammunition to use with each attack routine. Spell or Ability Tracking: If a weapon is linked to a spell or ability (that has uses), an additional roll template field will be added to the macro that will display a button to outputthe spell card as well as buttons to increment, decrement, or custom adjust the number of spells used. Spells: A field similar to that for weapons linked to a spell will be added to all spells. Abilities: A field similar to that for weapons linked to an ability will be added to all abilities that have uses. custom attribute: Entering %%What you named the custom attribute%% into the description field (notes field for weapons) will cause the script to put a field similar to the spell or ability to allow you to adjust the quantity of it. This will only be created for those custom attributes that have a current/max comparison. This can also be used to add fields for spells,abilities, or items without having to directly edit the macro text. Command syntax Item tracking: !pfc --resource,item=Item Name,current=max OR +/-X OR X,max=+/-X OR X|characterid|characterid|... Ability tracking: !pfc --resource,ability=Ability Name,current=max OR +/-X OR X|characterid|characterid|...

Import Statblock: !pfc --parse|characterid|characterid|characterid| OR !pfc --parse|{{statblock NEWCREATURE statblock NEW CREATURE ...}} Copy your statblock (pure text only - copy into a text editor first to clean off formatting) into the gmnotes of a fresh character or directly via chat, and then run the command. I have only tested the parser on pfsrd statblocks (and not many of those) so far, and hope to overcome the issues preventing multiple statblocks from being imported at once, as well as hopefully eventually allowing statblocks to be imported from chat. If you've got questions about how something works, let me know.

Try toggling the dropdown for "take 10/20" to something then back. i think.. since we changed it, we did not reset current values. so like everything it requires a toggle. we will put the 'reset' in the next build.
Another thing is the Custom Spells Per Day column on the table has vanished with no way of toggling it back it seems. It's how I've been managing the bonus charisma for spells and class features

Courtney there should be a "show more fields" just above the spells per day table, it might only appear in "expanded" mode, but should appear in both. (it should also appear in all 3 caster sections, but .. if it doesn't it is in the first for sure, i will make sure it's there) I moved some of those to the local areas because no one could find it in the settings page. and this way people could turn on extra fields only for sections they care about.
