While I am currently under commission to do this for another Ruleset, I'll warn you that paying for this type of thing is fraught with danger do to the often times complicated Copyright Issues, which become way more complicated as soon as $$$ starts changing hands.

Having said that, often Ruleset Development is a labor of love, so to get a professional quality product that someone isn't doing for themselves anyway means you need to pay professional quality rates - most hobbyists won't/aren't willing to pay these rates, and so instead of a professional product you end up with what can most generously be termed "no good". The individual currently engaging my services knows all about these, having experienced the down-side of these types of things already.

So, in short, good luck in achieving this, but realistically I wouldn't hold my breath - this type of thing gets asked in various threads from time to time and the results are normally the same: nothing.

On the other-hand, if you are genuinely willing to talk then drop me a PM - but I'd check out my Linked-In Profile (from my sig) first so to realize what you're in for :)

Cheers

This ruleset doesn't work graphically for me.

Similar problems with character sheets.

Looks like your monitor's resolution is larger than the desktop_background image.

It's only 1960x1080, pretty standard.

Just resize the character sheets so the information fits within the window. It's pretty close to the maximum size allowed, just click-drag the right border in a little bit to make it match up fully:

This ruleset doesn't work graphically for me.
It's a really cool graphic, but it doesn't support tiling with a decal as it's all in one. Therefore it's always going to be difficult to fit an image like this onto all of the different resolutions that people could use. The image is 1600x900, but it set to tile every 2400x2400. You could change it to tile every 1600x900 and you'll get something like this:

I can see I am going to have to figure out how to tile backgrounds

take the centre graphic out and use it as a decal. then set the background to tile.

Copy the .pak file (you may have to unzip the .zip file to get to the .pak file) and place it in the Rulesets folder under the fantasy ground folder.

Start Fantasy Grounds and select New Campaign: the Ruleset should be in the list

Oh, and if you haven't done so already, check out the Tutorial Videos on the FG Wiki (mine are also available from the links in my sig, below) - start with the ones on the CoreRPG, because this forms the foundation for just about all the games we play with FG

There is a ruleset I would like to have developed. Who would I talk to about having it commissioned?

That depends - the trouble that a lot of people have with getting work commissioned is the sheer amount of labour and time it takes. This translates directly into $$$, or into finding a rare individual who will do it for a "labour of love".

I'm currently engaged by a fellow Community Member to modify an existing Ruleset into a related RPG, and so far its taken 60+ hours (at a professional coding rate of... well, let's just say more than most are willing to spend). My client tried to get it done cheaper twice before but never managed to get the project done for one reason or another. He is very happy with the product I've produced for him and continue to produce for him, but he also understands the value of my time and expertise and so is willing to engage me as a Professional ICT Consultant.

If you'd like to send me a PM we can discuss things further - you might like to check out my LinkedIn Profile (link below) so you understand who and what you'll be engaging.

Other than that, I'm unsure if there is anyone suitable and available who would be willing to do the work for "amateur rates", but I could be grossly wrong about that.

Can you send me the example of the what the code would look like?

something like this Shotgun -

1st remove the centrepiece from your background image.
Make your background image tileable.
Make sure you background image is less than 2048w and 2048h

In your graphics_frames.xml you want something like this:


<framedef name="desktop">
<bitmap file="graphics/frames/desktop.jpg" />
<topleft rect="0,0,730,900" />
<top rect="730,0,1194,900" />
<topright rect="1924,0,116,900" />
<left rect="0,900,730,900" />
<middle rect="730,900,1194,900" />
<right rect="1924,900,116,900" />
</framedef>

The bit that tiles is the <middle rect="730,900,1194,900" />.
The first pair of numbers is the starting co-ordinate.
The second pair of numbers is how many pixels w and how many pixels h to add to the tileable piece of the image eg it starts at 730 from left and finishes at 730+1194 from left
If your whole image is to be used you would use something like <middle rect="0,0,1600,900" />
Now you can include the decal here too but the new way is to add it as a selectable Decal.
Let me know if that helps or not...

Also top, bottom will also tile horizontally. left, right will tile vertically. middle will tile horizontally and vertically. the corners dont tile.

In relation to above graphic with dimensions of 640x400 pixels you should be able to see the meaning of the definition below...

<framedef name="desktop">
<bitmap file="graphics/frames/desktop.jpg" />
<topleft rect="0,0,100,100" />
<top rect="100,0,440,100" />
<topright rect="540,0,100,100" />
<left rect="0,100,100,200" />
<middle rect="100,100,440,200" />
<right rect="540,100,100,200" />
<bottom left rect="0,300,100,100" />
<bottom rect="100,300,440,100" />
<bottom right rect="540,300,100,100" />
</framedef>

Are there any guides on how to create a library module for Only War? Neither myself nor any of my players are coders, and I would like to create something so players can drag and drop working weapons, psychic powers, etc. onto their sheets during character creation. I would also like to be able to drag and drop conditions and difficulty ratings onto characters during play. Is it possible to generate regiments so that PCs can drag a regiment onto their sheets and have it update their equipment, base stats, etc.?

Thanks for the input.

Are there any plans to update this to work with Fantasy grounds 3.2?
