[PF] Pathfinder Sheet Thread 6

1496181698

Edited 1496186732
Okay, I checked the "All" tab, and there were about a dozen boxes that were started but never completed, all of which had "Class Feature" in the "Rule" field.  So I got that figured out, thanks! As for the weapons, I believe I have all the necessary fields filled out, but I'm not sure.  In order to make it less confusing,  here's an image link to the two weapon boxes in question. If anyone could take a look and see if I'm missing anything, I'd appreciate it.  I have even tried it with the "Show" box checked, but it didn't seem to matter.  Also, both were dragged and dropped from the equipment section of the Roll20 compendium. Edit:   Okay, the weapon boxes are showing up on the attack page, but this is not exactly what I was expecting.  My confusion comes from  these two fields here , which are not filled in.  Perhaps they just aren't what I thought they were.  Can anyone tell me what those are for, what they should actually indicate, and how to fill them in if they are applicable? Of course, after trying to upload an image to this post directly, it reminded me of another issue I'm having:  I can't set pictures on the Bio screen.  Are there requirements for images?

The weapon attributes section looks fine to me...  Is the Create Attack button on the Shortsword a dark icon all the time or is only that way a few moments after your press it?  Are these weapons not added to your attacks at all, or are they just missing the damage info(dice and die)?  Maybe post an image of your attacks as well? Are you the GM?  I believe only the GM or co-GM can set images.  If you are the GM, you can drag/drop images from the sidebar or upload directly to journals, tokens, tabletop, art library, etc.

The Create Attack button is dark after I press it.  If I press it in the other box, that one darkens and the other one lightens up. However, under further inspection, I have noticed that the weapon boxes do, in fact, appear lower on the attack page.  My confusion comes from  these fields here , which as you can see aren't filled in.  I'm wondering if that isn't what I'm thinking it is.  Because it appears to be what my main melee and range attacks should be. And yes, I am the GM.  I have tried dragging and dropping images and uploading them from my pc both.  The images show up in my art file, but they are all blank.  I haven't yet tried to do anything with tokens yet, so I have no idea if I'll be facing troubles there, too.

the top ones that do not say damage/dmg are base attack values for the different types.  the bottom two are temporary bonuses / penalties to damage. Maybe we should add "adj" there or something to indicate it's temporary. The attacks themselves are at the bottom as you found.

Image problem is solved.  Turns out it was an issue with Chrome.  I became suspicious of that after I was unable to post images here, so I switched to Firefox and now everything is working as it should. My issues are now taken care of (for now).  Thanks for the help!

Regarding update pacing issues (3 pages back): it's not so much that I mind the sheets being updated. It's the damn popup every time I enter a game even though I'm playing 3x+ a week. Perhaps if "do not show again" muted *all* updates unless I click something to specifically show the revision log, even if a new one is published, would solve the issue? I'd really appreciate it. I'm running something like 12 sheets between minions and helping other players with characters and having to close the popup every time is rather annoying.

we are going to slow down actually. we are betaing some updates that will take awhile. so this will be the last one (unless some bugs are found this week) i can shrink that log, i kept some older revisions up since the updates were coming so fast. but .. yeah we put the "see older announcements" there for this purpose i suppose we should use it. :) maybe that is something we can add to the API too, "close announcements for all sheets" also i just realized we can hide it for new characters, that is something we are not doing.

So, I'm trying to make a macro for power attack, but when I was checking the ability damage multiplier, I found out that when you turn it up past 1.5, the multiplier seems to default to one, even if it's a two or three. Further, when I try to use the multiplier in a macro, it defaults to one again. Is this buy design, or is it a glich?

That's my mistake when changing the field over to a selector... ;-(   Although it shouldn't cap at 1 regardless. Currently the selector is incorrectly labeling 2.5 as 2 and 4.5 as 4 is actually missing the values for 2.5 and 4.5.  We'll have a look and get a fix ASAP.   <option value="0.5">0.5</option>     <option value="1" selected>•1</option>     <option value="1.5">1.5</option>     <option value="2">2.5</option>     <option value="3">3</option>     <option value="3.5">3.5</option>     <option value="4">4.5</option>     <option value="5">5</option>     <option value="5.5">5.5</option>     <option value="6">6</option>

When setting a decimal value for an item in the equipment tab, the sheet seems to round down(or just ignore completely?) the value before multiplying them to the quantity. Is this intentional? It isn't much of a big deal since it's easy to work around, but it does tend to be an issue, especially when inputting rations or other objects that cost less than 1gp.

oops, how did that get in the prod build? the 1.5 should work, and 1, but no others right now. or should we just remove this?  I first thought of adding it because some users were using commas instead of decimals. and javasscript was thinking it changed even when it didn't (stupid floats) are people using other values besides .5, 1, 1.5?
Since a few weeks, the macro refering to the skills button does not work for me anymore. I have a macro that calls %{selected|skills} (as the tooltip above the skills button shows) and it only write the text of the macro in chat. It's been a few weeks but i think the macro text was something else before, but that one broke as well and the new one isn't working for me. If I click on the Skill button in the character sheet, it works as intended. I'm using that with a token action. Other macro to buttons works well. thanks

Yep, the system doesn't know what to do if there are multiple abilities (or attributes) of a given name. Keep in mind that these are also case insensitive, so Skills and skills are the same.
Scott C. said: jean p. said: This might already have been requested, and i´m not entirely sure that this is the right forum for it (First post). But i would like to make a request for the PF sheets. Would it be possible to add a macro function for tracking Buffs and conditions? In the sense that when you click on the macro, your created buffs gets listed in the chat for easy activation and deactivation. What i´m basically looking for is a Token button. Tge ability to toggle the buffs/conditions on/off requires the API. The  current beta version of the companion script allows you to do this in several ways. I'll add a buff/condition control panel to the feature requests though. Ah thanks :)

chris b. said: Alex said: Oh hey, if I delete every other copy of it and re-export, the sheet doesn't auto-update from the old version to the new version for a few minutes. So I can grab the macros from there if I'm fast enough. Just need to keep deleting the old ones when they convert over, and exporting an untouched old version. 1. Are these the old ability lists, "repeating_class-abilities", "repeating_npc-spell-like-abilities" etc? 2. what version of the sheet were you on before opening it? was it perviously 1.12 or before? this should show up as "pfsheet_version" attribute on the attributes & abilities tab (the outer tab that is bio, sheet, attributes & abilities)  if on the ability tab make sure to set migrated_attack_macrosv1 migrated_feature_macrosv109 to 1, migrated_ability_macrosv112  to 1, before clicking on the sheet tab, then it should not touch the ability macros at all. though those should be set to 1 by default there is a chance they may not be set correctly. (others similar macro settings are in the "macros" section near bottom of Settings page) Sorry guys--was trying to say that I'd found a way to solve the problem. It was from an old sheet, I think repeating class abilities list or something, and all the old custom macros were overwritten with the basic ones. I couldn't find a switch to make it not happen, but I copied them out and into a new sheet. Already deleted the old one, sorry!
Far too many posts to search through to see if this has already been mentioned, but two things I would like to request: 1) The ability to add a Caster Level bonus on a per-spell basis. Spell Specialization gives a +2 Caster Level bonus to one spell in particular, and I have no way that I can find to apply that on the character sheet. 2) The ability to have attack rolls rolled within the spell macro itself. I have it rolling damage, but short of using the Attack macro the spell creates, I see no way to roll to-hit and crit-hit/damage within the spell without basically writing a macro within the spell description text.

So I'd second this request. It also stops your attack section of the sheet from getting overwhelmed if you have a lot of offensive spells. I've also been adding this to all of my save sections: Will negates [[1D20+@{target|Will}]] vs maybe an option for something like this in the future? It's not a big deal to do my self but sometimes the formatting doesn't look pretty. Both of those require you to click on a target which some people might not like, but I prefer it and feel like it saves me time.

The Linguistic skill and the Sleight of Hand skills, even though they are "Trained-Only" skills, are showing up in the Skills Menu (and able to roll) despite no ranks in the skill.  As far as I am aware of, the Knowledge skills are the only "Trained-Only" skills that you can roll untrained, so long as the DC is 10 or less.

I seem to remember seeing this at some point, but it appears to have been disabled or hidden in recent updates:  If I have multiple casting classes but they add their class levels together for determining caster level, how do I reflect this on the sheets?

If I set up a buff for Bless or any other melee attack enhancing effect, it will add to attack rolls, but not CMB rolls.  
Please don't enforce rounding in the class information boxes (BAB, saves, etc.). Enforcing rounded values will destroy the ability for games to use fractional multiclassing rules as per the Unchained variant option. The character sheet currently warns the player to enter a whole value, which is fine, but going any further will eliminate this option for campaigns who use the fractional model.

For people who had buffs setup, v1.54 or 3 would have copied them over to "ranged damage" for you.

the only thing i wonder is, is every untrained skill check exactly the same as an ability check, or not. Like, if you have a +1 bonus to ability checks but not skill checks, would you get it if untrained? There are very few instances of bonus to one but not the other. Currently I don't mix them up, which is probably simplest.

You need to manually create them, but it's just a matter of referencing the roll button in question, which is done just like referencing an ability. I'd recommend making token actions of the&nbsp; various menus .

Don't unlink the token from the sheet it represents for a mook, merely unlink the bars you set after it has inherited the required value (specifically hitpoints for most mooks).
