View Full Version : Monsters.XML and adding new monsters

April 30th, 2005, 15:22

I've added a monster to the monsters.xml file and its valid XML. However, when I load FG I dont see the monster available in the listing for my campaign.

What must be done to get the software to load the data?

I believe that you need to copy the d20 ruleset folder to a new folder in your rulesets folder. Call this one what you like... like "my_d20"

After this, in the campaign.xml file, you need to edit it to point to your ruleset folder.
The code changes from

to ".... ruleset="my_d20"

Hope this helps

I also had to edit the base.xml to point to my customized xml datafiles as well.

in the FantasyGrounds\rulesets\myd20 folder...
