I seem to be having trouble figuring out how to allow players to target other players. For example the cleric in the party wants to cast the cure light wounds spell on another player, so he targets that player by doing a crtl + click on them and an arrow appears pointing at the party member. He then hits the heal button, and a die is rolled, but it is not applied to the other player. If he targets himself, the heal works just fine.

Is there something I'm missing? Also, Cure Light Wounds is supposed to do 1d8 + 1/lvl, but I only ever see the 1d8 rolled and no bonus is applied.

Click the magnifying glass icon to the right of the spell to expand the details and see exactly how the heal entry is coded.

Let me check this out this weekend, and report back. I may need your campaign data, but I'll look first.

Thanks,

Here is a screenshot of the details of the spell. This was dragged and dropped from the PFRPG spells module.

OK, the reason why the healing is only 1d8 is because you have a caster level (CL) of 0 for this spell class. Change the CL (to the right of the "Cleric" title) to 1 and see if it rolls 1d8+1 for the healing. Not sure why the targeting is not working though - how were your tokens added to the map? Did you drag them from the entry in the combat tracker? It might be worth removing the PCs from the combat tracker and the tokens from the map, then re-adding the PCs to the combat tracker and adding the tokens to the map by dragging them from the combat tracker - this might reset the link between the tokens and the PC entries.

Weird. It looks like both of my posts are awaiting moderation. Including the one that was originally approved.

Anyhow, I've done some further testing, and it looks like targeting is not functioning when targeting another player's characters. So if I log in as a player and I assign two characters to myself, I can target properly and heal works as expected, but if I log in as two different players and assign a single character to each, I am unable to target the second player with spells. The spell gets cast, but it does not target the second PC character.

Hope that made sense.

OK, I think I found the issue. It only occurs on clients where the target PC is not owned by the client. It works with target PCs that are owned, but not currently active/logged in; which is why it was more difficult to pinpoint. I should have a patch early this week.

Ahh yeah. I forgot to set the spell class when I setup the testing environment. Thanks for the heads up.

Awesome. Thanks for finding this so quickly.
