As always, please make a backup of your FG data folder before updating and opening campaigns with a test release.

Please see the sticky thread on public testing if you want to be involved. The Test mode slot (available via the FG Settings dialog) contain this version right now.

Remember, this is a beta release, which means that all the features should be in place. However, there may be issues (hopefully minor).

As always, we're a small company so we rely on our community to help sound out each new release. Thanks in advance to all those who pitch in.

Thanks,

Looks like Saving Throws are fixed! Here's what we ran into as far as issues go with our 5E game.

Whenever damage was rolled from the character sheet, combat tab, weapons, every weapon tried gave us an error: Script Error: [string "scripts/manager_action_damage.lua"]:449: attempt to index global 'rDmgType' (a nil value)
When adding new weapons to a character a sheet the error given is: Script Error: [string "campaign/scripts/manager_char.lua"]:156: createChild: Invalid argument 1

When opening the powers sheet with any character I receive this error in varying amounts:
Script Error: [string "scripts/manager_power.lua"]:368: attempt to index local 'nodeAction' (a nil value)
Script Error: [string "scripts/manager_power.lua"]:368: attempt to index local 'nodeAction' (a nil value)

I have a DMG with NPCs only and a PHB with Races, Classes, Weapon, Armor, and Equipment tables, Feats, and Skills loaded. This data is from the Oct playtest package and it all parsed fine. Currently no damage is able to be rolled from PCs but monsters can roll damage. (A little unfair to the group they think ;)

Sorry if this has been mentioned already, but in 3.0.4 there is strange behavior in library category names: it displays definition.xml file's author tag's content as category name (in library windowclass). I can see this effect by opening single SW module (player or GM book). Instead of stating "Savage Worlds Essentials" name in the category value is "Copyright 2011, Pinnacle Entertainment Group". Now If I open another book the category name is correct but there is additional category staging the "Copyright 2011, Pinnacle Entertainment Group". I bet this is a bug.

Moon Wizard
April 17th, 2014, 22:28
In library_list_book.lua; the category string is set to the module category by default. If the category is empty, then the author is used instead. This was done for backward compatibility with older modules. Perhaps the category tag is incorrectly defined, or not being read by FG correctly? Which module?

It would be nice if 'facing' only worked for tokens that are IN the tracker. Sometimes tokens are just tokens that represent things other than combatants.

It seems the 3.0.4 FantasyGrounds.exe is able to spike one CPU core for the host and each of the six clients we had trying to connect. We are using 4e ruleset with no additional extensions. The host and all the clients were using Win 7 OS. The spiking occurs right at load, no maps, characters, or other objects are needed. Downgrading back tot he 3.0.3 live version corrected the issue. I realize this is a little vague, but unsure what else to report. Let me know if there are specific things to check?

Thanks, Al.

Moon Wizard
April 20th, 2014, 21:49
Can you send a copy of your campaign folder(zipped), and any modules used in the campaign to [email protected]?

The spiking might have to do with module updating code that is supposed to update modules with older version numbers to the latest release when opened. Only item records should be affected (I think), so this would depend on number of items in the modules. It might need some fine tuning.

Trenloe suggested I bring this up here, so here we go: I just released a new module for C&C with a bunch of races and classes, both using a whole lot of Abilities (skills). I created the module as a campaign in FG, then edited the XML into a normal module ala the PHB, etc. I released it, and immediately got feedback that opening the Abilities was causing a script error. Tren took a look, and said, "It looks like the Castles & Crusades ruleset changes the 'ability' windowclass to 'ref_ability' in 3.0.4 (in campaign\record_ability.xml). There have been a few C&C fixes in 3.0.4 so this might well be part of those. But, it does mean that this module will need to be updated once 3.0.4 goes live... '. SO I can make that change easily enough, but unless something is handled in either FG or the C&C ruleset, then I believe that all old modules created in in the FG app are going to break with the new release.

EDIT: I just confirmed that 3.0.4 breaks the Abilities attached to Races (and presumably Classes) in the PHB. This seems pretty much like a showstopper for C&C.

EDIT 2: I just confirmed that 3.0.4 breaks existing campaigns, in that when a campaign is opened in 3.0.4, none of the Abilities can be opened in existing character sheets.

[CnC] Reverted ability class rename.


I was attempting to consolidate window classes across rulesets to maximize re-use. Apparently, C&C was the only one to use the PC "ability" records directly, as opposed to linked from PC sheets. Change reverted, so the links should work again. Let me know.

Actually, in that screenshot FG is displaying the range correctly - your second diagonal should be 20' not 15'.

Thanks for looking at this Trenloe. Seems I may have been counting range wrong by not taking into account the first square for the diagonal adjustments. Had another play around and the range seems to work for medium creatures.

Still a small issue with creatures larger than medium which as Trenole pointed out does appear to be counting range to / from the centre of the token for larger creatures.

I think the ideal resolution would be to allow a specific square of a large+ creature to be targeted - this would allow for targets with cover, splash weapons, etc. to have specific squares targeted and the range calculated correctly. Don't know how hard that would be to add/code though...

The targeting for large tokens is going to be surprisingly complicated now that I'm thinking about it. The "size" of an actor in the combat tracker and the underlay is independent of the actual token size and scale on the map as well as the grid size. Also, the current "distance" calculations only count whole grid squares, and can specify different calculations for diagonal vs. vertical/horizontal adjacent squares (for example, PFRPG vs. 4E).

So, the issue is that a "small" or scaled down token could be used to represent a large creature on the map, and where do you really place the "targeting point" for a large creature anyway? There are a lot of assumptions that can change based on token graphic selected.

I might need to add a "grid size" attribute to specify the "size" to use for determining the creatures grid squares inhabited for targeting distance calculations. Then, the question becomes whether to require "square" sizes or allow rectangular shapes as well. I don't even want to think about non-rectangular shapes. Also, not sure what it means to have a "size" on a hex grid, since it seems to me like it would be unique to each game system.

Any suggestions?

I'd say that the targeting should be based off the underlay, which is derived from the size info in the Combat Tracker - the token should be completely ignored. Then you'd need to work out which is the closest square to the other creature in the targeting situation - I'm not sure what the best algorithm for this would be (complicated by the fact that you could have two large creatures involved). It might be simplest to just let the use determine this - whichever of the underlay squares that click on is used for the targeting calculations. Tiff need to give them the ability to click on a different square and recalculate.

This would be the best solution from a Pathfinder perspective as players can select a specific square of a target to avoid a square with cover or to target a specific square with a ranged splash weapon (to control where the splash goes).

Looks like 3.0.4 has introduced a bug when applying energy resistance for actions with multiply sources of damage.

Using a +1 flaming longsword (ignoring STR) as an example and targeting a creature with resist 5 fire I roll a total of 14 damage (8 slashing, +6 fire) and so the creature should only take 9 damage (8 slashing, +1 fire) but the result in the chat windows shows the target received the full 14 damage and [PARTIALLY RESISTED] is appended to the result string.

I have tested this with a weapon with two damage items, and a weapon with a single damage item and a DMG: 1d6 fire effect. Both yield the same result. Screenshots attached.


I tested in 3.0.3 with the DMG effect and it worked as I expected.

Hi Guys,

Maybe not the right thread, but with v3.0.4 in Testing I thought this way this would be brought to Moon's attention ASAP:

In v3.0.3 of the CoreRPG's Party Sheet: if you resize the Party Sheet so that Marching And Formation Pane is bigger than the underlying Image, the Image and the Tokens (and Portraits) on it will be scaled up - it Zooms in, effectively. If you then resize the Party Sheet back down again the scale of the Image will not change back down again. The only way to return the Image to its original side is to restart Fantasy Grounds.

So, is this a bug or what? :)

Cheers

It is an image control, so treat it like sizing any image - if you size out on any image and size back down the image zoom will stay at the sized out zoom level. Use the mouse wheel to adjust the zoom back down to the level you need.

Undocumented combo feature/bug/"funky design". Unfortunately, it's a side effect of the current implementation of image controls.

All of top requested items are for image/token enhancements, so I'm hoping we get some time to work on that in the near future. Steam launch and keeping up with beta are taking a lot of time. Also, we are looking at moving to Unity to better support Mac/Linux, as well as open up tablet/phone opportunities. Trade-offs, as usual.

Currently working on getting the targeting distance feature working. It got really complicated once I started considering tokens larger than 1 square. It requires all sorts of contortions, and a new API to define "target size" as opposed to using "graphic size".

Moving to Unity is a big thing, however it would be cool to have better graphics, unicode, native Linux & OSX, decent network and so on in one package. And good foundations for the future, for example advanced graphics tools like dynamic lightning and such.

Irondrake
May 11th, 2014, 15:44
Would moving to Unity mean the GM is no longer hosting all of the connections? The only reason I ask is because some of us live in rural areas and the internet is ok for limited numbers, but once you get 5 people connected and someone else at the house decides to do other things (daughter streams Netflix....) you start to hear "LAG" from the players...

Blacky
May 11th, 2014, 16:02
Probably not per se. But it would mean a clean and decent networking layer, meaning it would be possible to get FG up to date in that area (as in separating GM from hoster, doing P2P connexions for a better usage of network bandwidths, QoS to always get a smooth experience and no freeze, fast on the fly compression, and so on) after a switch to the engine.

THREAD EDITED: this is happening as per design.

In 3.5E (and therefore PFRPG too) an ATK effect as part of a conditional effect (IFT) shows in the attack roll details, but the modifier is directly applied to the dice roll - but the effect modifier is taken into account when being compared with a specific target when calculating hit/miss. This is deliberate functionality to allow a single attack to be made against more than one target and to not modify the end dice roll total with target specific effects as this would then result in the single attack roll being modified for all targets.

See below. The Ape has a +7 attack, and has an IFT:dazed conditional effect. The target (Ankheg) is dazed and the attack result details show that [EFFECTS +2] were applied, but the +2 was not applied to the actual roll but is included in the hit/miss result.

https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/39085830/Screenshots/Fantasy%20Grounds/Effect%20Condition%20Targeting%20bug.jpg

This is just for attacks, for DMG effects the modifier is added to the result.

Was thinking (if it doesnt require a big change, otherwise it will become another one for the wishlist). Would it be possible to allow Effect tags in PC Special Abilities Section of the Abilities Tab so that certain Special Abilities of Certain Race types/ Class types are automatically on the PC when Created. EG Dwarf +4 to AC when fighting Giant types. Not A biggie but if its something easy to do might be worth throwing in.

MW, it seems that DB.copyNode function does not copy "image" type databasenodes correctly. The same applies with windowlists where I have defined acceptdrop with field=*. When copying image typed databasenodes only the <nodename type="image"></nodename> appears after copying, but all important content such as bitmap is not there. Is this expected outcome? When debugging my source database node, I can successfully getValue of image typed databasenode which is table and values seem to be correct there, but it does not get copied :(

Thanks for the reports all. They're on my internal to do list for the beta. Busy week.

Ikael, the DB.copyNode function does not currently support copying of image nodes. (due to additional challenges of implementing additional file duplication for main image, drawings and masks). I should probably add a note to the API. Are you trying to do something other than copy images within the images list?

This requirement popped in during development of Interface Zero 2.0 extension for SW. Me and Kevin got this idea of implementing feature where each weapon, armor and vehicle could have embedded image in their sheets. IZ book contains images representing (almost) each weapon so we though this would be neat feature. The issue is introduced when dragging and dropping weapons and armor into charsheet, because instead of just making them hyperlinks to module, content of the databasenodes are copied into charsheet so that tey could be edited laterwards. Since images are part of the database nodes they stop working/not being copied.

So I believe such embedded image feature cannot be implement for our needs. We can always go with the secondary plan: provide link in description, however I was already so hyped being able to see the weapon's picture directly in my weapon windowclass, oh well, reality hits :)

Valarian
May 14th, 2014, 09:56
Ikael, you can probably do this with a reference windowclass having the image area for the picture, referencing an icon definition for the image. Then, on the character sheet, only store the weapon name / stats and the library reference. When the players click on the link in that character sheet, they get the library item popup, with the image shown. Or is that the same as your secondary plan?

When the players click on the link in that character sheet, they get the library item popup, with the image shown. Or is that the same as your secondary plan?

Actually my idea was not that neat, I was just thinking of writing link to formattedtextfield, but your approach is much better, thanks!

I think I may have found a bug in this version in the 5E ruleset. Haven't run into it until now because we've been running campaigns that were created with prior versions. While starting up a new campaign, characters that are supposed to get choices at first level (Clerics Domain, Mages schools) are not showing up at all. Also, any race that gives more than +1 to a stat (Half-Orc's +2 Str) is being ignored or capped at +1.

Let me look. This might be the fact that the class/race drag and drop auto-add feature doesn't perform that level of automation at this point.

This is one of the reasons why I hesitated adding this sort of feature (complete drag and drop character creation), because character creation is very complex and there is always something new. It increases maintenance time for each ruleset, and there is only one of me working on it now. ;)

Ruleset: 3.5e

Using the DMGTYPE: cold iron effect results in damage TYPE of cold, iron being used when damage is rolled. This results in cold iron DR not being overcome and cold resistance being applied.

Moon Wizard
May 16th, 2014, 20:39
Just looked at the code. Based on what I can see, the only selections that are currently supported are skill selection (from class proficiency link) and subrace selection (from race link).

The specialty selection data needs to be added to the class data in the module in order for it to be supported with a selection dialog like those.

I was thinking (as I was putting together my latest PF module) that it would be really cool to have a Tactics Tab on the Encounter Window.
You can't really put the Tactics into the monster because a lot of times the monster is used several times in the same module with different tactics... but the Encounter is specific to the instance and is a good place to always look for Tactics. You can of course build them into the Story entry.. but I don't know about you but my story entries tend to get pretty huge.

I'll added this to MW's Idea Informer.. you can vote for it HERE (http://fg2app.idea.informer.com/proj/?ia=84159)

In 5E they changed the wording from cold iron to cold-forged iron. Wonder if it would help if it picked up on cold-forged instead of just "cold" or "iron"? Of course that's only in 5E.

Moon Wizard
May 19th, 2014, 06:43
Good idea on the tactics. Would probably just call it Notes for the encounter, to be consistent with other windows. Plus I already have a tab for that. ;)

Cold-forged iron would have the same issue. It has more to do with multiple words than with triggers. A limitation of the current effects system. Something I really want to redo, along with a bunch of other things.

Blackfoot
May 19th, 2014, 22:42
I have another brilliant idea.. *cough* ..I was thinking about the effects that aren't in most spells and how the spell parsing could auto create them.

It seems like any spell that has a duration other than instantaneous should have an effect with the name of the spell in it that operates for the listed duration. This could be automatically set to 'self' because these spells would be more timekeepers than anything else... other 'working' effects could then be added to those effects with their durations already set and half the work already done.
This would probably work for 4e, 3.5e, and PFRPG as well as many of the other rulesets.

I added this to the idea.informer.. you can vote for it HERE (http://fg2app.idea.informer.com/proj/fg2app?ia=50690#comment_form) ... (Actually.. this is some else's similar idea.. I just piggybacked onto it.. my solution hopefully gets it here in the shorter term)

May 19th, 2014, 23:07

I thought about that, but then thought about how seemless the parsing of NPC stats is at the moment. From NPC FG parses out DR automatically and applies damage types if present. GMs would need to manually edit each NPC statblock to turn "cold iron" into "coldiron" and would have to remember to do this every time. Players would have to remember to also change their damage types to "coldiron" as well. Whereas this might work, if everyone is aware of it and all new players/GMs get to be told about it - which from my experience of being on these forums for so long I know that it is very difficult to get the message out to everyone, so it would be impossible to cover this off with all players moving forwards. It's got to keep the format of the actual RPG the ruleset is for - which is where we are with the current coding issue.

If, as a GM, anyone wants to make the manual changes in NPC and PC records to use "coldiron" instead of "cold iron" then please refer to this thread for further discussion and an extension that adds coldiron as a damage type: http://www.fantasygrounds.com/forums/showthread.php?21080-Cold-Iron-damage-type

http://www.fantasygrounds.com/forums/showthread.php?20847-Beta-release-v3-0-4&p=173898#post173898

This is the expected behavior.
* The original attack roll has the correct modifiers given the attacker making a roll sans target. This attack roll can be dragged and applied to any target.
* When the attack roll is applied to the Ankheg target, it checks the effects, and grants the Ape +2 vs. dazed targets. Modifiers applied which are specific to target are noted in the resolution text (i.e. [EFFECTS +2]), and the resolution total uses original roll total plus target specific modifier.

Thanks! By the way I noticed some time ago that when you target tokens on maps with the area-selection tool it was very flunky about invoking tokeninstance.onTargetUpdate and tokeninstance.onTargetedUpdate handlers, but now I haven't been able to reproduce it anymore. Was this known issue and was it fixed?

Is there possibility to programmatically set focus on chatentry? I have tried setFocus, but that's not supported by chatentry.

Moon Wizard

Use setFocus(false) on a stringcontrol, numbercontrol or formattedtextcontrol should do it.

Hey Moon, don't know whether or not this is a bug, per se... for lack of a better term, it's "non-optimal," but I'm not sure how it should act. The bug is that unidentified weapons (C&C) cannot be used as a weapons, and they don't show up in the weapon selection on the combat tab when copied into the character's inventory. In the perfect world, I wish the weapon would show up without any magical adjustments being displayed... or I guess any weapon details... but obviously that gets complicated. Can you see any simple way of allowing unidentified weapons without disclosing their bonuses to players? Just figured I'd at least mention it.

Well, we generally only set the colour once (at least, that's how I and my players have done things) and the ability to set an exact RGB Colour Code was always being asked for by my Players (which is why I wrote the Extension in the first place), so having a 1 in there is "a good thing" (IMNSHO). If you are concerned with ease of use you could make it (50,10,1) or (100,10,1) - I think (50,10,1) would be the best.

But the important thing is to have the 1 - ie (I,J,1) and make I and J whatever.

As a side note: I chose (25,5,1) because I'm slightly anal and (25,5,1) makes a nice 5-by-5 pattern - if I were less anal I'd probably have chosen (50,10,1) :)

Just my $0.02 worth.

Hey, this really isn't a bug, but I mention it here as I think it could be a handy feature if it was easy to implement. Currently, if you drag an attack to the chat window (in C&C at least) and right-click before you drop the attack, you'll add an extra d20 to the attack roll. This is pretty much useless, as the dice are added together, but it would be *really* cool if the extra die represented an additional attack. So for a creature like a Carrion Crawler that gets a varying number of attacks each round, you could just drag the tentacle attack to teh chat window, then right-click a number of times to add the appropriate number of attack rolls for the current round. Make sense?

In CoreRPG running v3.0.5..
I build a generic 'Thug' and set a token for it.
I then drop him into an encounter 'Street Gang'.
I turn him into 9 Thugs.
I then set different tokens for each of the 9 thugs (something I was able to do in the past and it 'looks' like I can do now)... but...
As soon as I close the encounter.. wham. They are all set back to the base token again. ??
