Hi all.. (I created a new thread for 3 new rulsets, any more updates to Black Crusade will be mentioned in the new thread (http://www.fantasygrounds.com/forums/showthread.php?24064-FFG-Black-Crusade-Rule-Set)) April 2015

Thanks to all the hard work from Sciencephile, I have been able to convert his awesome Dark Heresy Ruleset into Black Crusade ruleset.

8239

I tested most of it, but I am sure I may have missed a few odd things but its good enough to play with my group, and they seemed happy with it.

I know of 1 issue, which no matter with all the tutorials and help I asked for I can not seem to get. And that is making a 30* Cone pointer. So, maybe someone will help me with that.

But if anyone sees something or finds a glitch let me know..
Just know, that this was my first attempt at ever trying to figure out LUA and XML, so I still have a lot to learn.

Well for you enjoyment..

PS. If someone knows how to put this on the WIKI.. then feel free. I do know how that works :confused:

Just found a really interesting bug...

If you drag a weapon from the "items" tab to your Character Sheets "weapon tab" Even if its a Melee Weapon, if you do not have a "0" typed into ammunition you will get an error.

Its been added to the list to fix. Might try and get it to be default 0

how hard would it be for a deathwatch or only war?

Are you implying that it would be easy? Or hard? Or that the Black Crusade rule set has the rules for Only war in it? Or that an Only War rule set it on the way?

methinks that Shotgun may have also been working on a Deathwatch ruleset...

I think he initially took the Dark Heresy ruleset and changed a few things, mainly with the character sheet to make it work for Black Crusades. So really you can use either one to run any of the 40k settings at this point. But yeah, I think he's working on the other settings.

Hey guys, I have had this in the hold for awhile. Its a tweaked version of the Dark Heresy set here. It has several changes, the party sheet works, the weapons slots collapse, and a few bugs in the items and custom items worked out. Try this one. It has the basics for the Rogue Trader ship combat, it would be an NPC the way I laid it out. I think this one is a bit more complete. The psy rules are still V1 Dark Heresy, but really v2 and the other rulese sets RT, DW, BC use percentile roles, you could just set them as skills. Hope it helps.

I have been, its currently next on my list when I get some more details added to Black Crusade. DeathWatch is actually very easy to switch over as many of the special rules for weapons and traits are already coded. Its just a matter of making it look more Death Watch like. (for the most part) But its playable now, I got a couple of features I want to add to it tho.

But no, I had to pick Black Crusade, where there are so many "small" changes in the code...omg!:eek::eek:

So do these rulesets have Modules attached to them or do items, weapons, mutations and the like have to be manually added?

I went back and re-downloaded this morning. Works. Must have been a corrupted download.
