First off, thank you for this great tool! It's making things much faster than the H1, H2, and H3 that I did completely in FGII.

I'm having trouble with encounters though. When I generate my encounters file, all i get in FGII is a blank encounter with the name "New Encounter". I must be missing something, but here's what the generated encounter file contains.


ZEncounter
Bar Fight!
Encounter Level 1 (580 XP)
Setup
10 hobgoblin grunts (H)
2 goblin blackblades (G)
8 human rabble (R)

Thank you for any insight.

The only difference between what I have in my encounters file and what you listed is that I have a ZCategory tag at the end of the list. I believe that ZCategory is a required tag, but I'm not sure about that.

Bar Fight!

The only time I've had a problem like you mention (blank encounters in FG) is when there was a problem with the npc file. Are all of the npcs you list in the encounter listed and parsing correctly in the npc data and fluff files?

ZCategory did the trick, thank you! The NPC's were parsing fine and showing in personalities the correct way which was a bit confusing.

Off to finish the adventure!
