Woo hoo!

As an FYI to others: Norton blocked my updater - I had to allow it. If you see "ERROR: GetProducts..." in the updater window check that your security/AV application hasn't blocked the FG UpdaterEngine.exe.

Reminder to all: EXTENSIONS!

There is a good chance that a lot of extensions will not be 100% compatible with v3.2.0 - unless they specifically say so. Some may even break functionality/cause errors.

Be aware of this if you encounter issues after updating to v3.2.0 - check all of your extensions for compatibility updates.

If you have issues think about removing some incompatible extensions to identify what is causing the issue, then post in the relevant extension's thread - not in the v3.2.0 thread!

I'll be running slowly through all of my extensions later today and updating to be v3.2.0 compatible. Note that some are no longer needed as the functionality is included in v3.2.0 (GM PC Ownership, for example).

Dammit, I just finished updating and all of my campaign stopped working.. it loads a few errors and that's it, no buttons, no icons, only chat and dice are there... no characters, no maps, no miniatures, nothing else.. the rightmost bar (various "notes, PCs, etc) is completely empty. Tried loading 4 of my campaigns, only the demo 5e adventure seems to work :/

Thanks for the continued hard work with Fantasy Grounds. However, like Asgurgolas above me, I seem to be encountering some technical difficulties accessing my WotC 5E purchases as they are not showing up at all. The only things showing up are the freebies. I tried quitting to the launcher and the game, restarting, checking for more updates, and creating a new campaign. I'm on a Mac using Wine to access FG. The launcher does state it is 3.2.

Double check the following items:
1. Launch FG and click Settings. re-enter your username and confirm your password. Also check that your license key is entered and still active if you have a subscription. Re-run an update.
2. Inside your campaign, go into Modules and then Library and see if they show up there for activation

If they don't please send a screenshot of the following to [email protected] and we can help.
1. FG Launch screen
2. FG Settings screen
3. Library > Modules screen

For reference, update took me about 3 minutes. Included official 5E materials; PHB, MM, DMG, PotA, LMoP, and a few AL and other modules.

Tested several campaigns and everything is working fine for me.

Good job guys. Looking forward to playing with the sorting functions.

I mostly play 3.5e. If I start a "new" campaign then it seems to work but it also seems to be incompatible with my previous data (I'd have to manually rescript everything from scratch). When I go and load, I see it pretty much empty

I'd add a screenshot but this forum forbids me to

What does auto equip armor mean? Right now don't you manually need to go enter numbers to get an accurate AC in 5E?

Have you disabled all your extensions? Most of these will not yet be compatible with this version. Do that first and then try restarting and loading your campaign and let us know how that goes.?

Asgurgolas
November 1st, 2016, 20:37
yes, I did disable'em all, but I still have that issue :/

Best case scenario so far, I can see the usual topmost icons (from combat tracker to effects) "Characters", "Tokens", "Library". That's all, no other icons at all

No longer:) I'm not sure if it accounts for various traits that effect AC, but now your armor automatically effects your AC.

What does the ID icon (red or green circle) do for images? The player sees the identified image name regardless of the state of the button.

Nevermind, ignore me. It uses the ID'd name if you actually utilize it AFTER ID'ing it.

Can you click on Library and then choose which buttons you want to see by checking the circle next to each? There should also be "sets" of buttons you can enable by clicking on the GM, Play, Create PC or All buttons.

Moon Wizard
November 1st, 2016, 20:54
Once an extension interferes with the loading of the sidebar button configuration and gives an empty sidebar, then the sidebar configuration will be remembered as empty. If you go to the Library like Doug mentioned and click the GM button, all the buttons will return.

I don't know if this is anything, but i updated to 3.2, and everything works fine, except the updated button is still red. I hit it again, though there might be some fast fix... It downloaded the FG exe again, and then said it could not save it. And just moved on... Everything else seem fine.

I realize this is not the point of this thread and I'm not at home to try this but how does this work? It says equipping armor, maybe I've been doing something wrong for over a year but my players armor is in the inventory tab. I just go into their sheet and change the values. How does one equip armor? For that matter what the hell is equipping weapons?

I feel so stupid right now like we have been doing something wrong for over a year.

It is new in V 3.2 you can now designate armour and weapons as being equipped or unequipped.

I like how images now have a player-friendly name so a GM can use hidden info in the image filename. But tokens still display the image filename to the players if they look in their token box. So if I have an image and token of an enemy named 'Zhentarim Spy.png' and give the un-ID'd name of 'Friendly Wizard', the players can open their token box and see the wizard's token is called 'Zhentarim Spy.png'. This subverts what you are trying to do here with images.

I am currently playing Pathfinder game and the mini sheet seems to have lost all our weapons?!

We have to open the full sheet, change from combat mode to Standard mode and then they are displayed...

Sorry just noticed we have to go to the inventory tab and equip them.

How does one account for Versatile weapons now? Right now we have multiple entries in the actions tab for attacking with one or 2 hands. If the only items showing up are equipped weapons how would one handle this?

Nickademus
November 1st, 2016, 21:15
I don't think the designation does anything. It's just an icon that cycles through Carried, Equipped, and Not Carried.

Since the update I now get the following error when attempting to use the side buttons on any Core RPG-based ruleset (older rulesets, like Call of Cthulhu, still work fine):

Script Error: [string "scripts/data_library.lua"]:53: attempt to call field 'toggleWindow' (a nil value)

Nickademus
November 1st, 2016, 21:20
Okay, so how easy is it to add a button to the sidebar now? It used to be just sending a request with a button object to a manager object. Do I now need to edit ruleset code to get a button in the sidebar?

The filter fields on the windows are nice, but it would be nice to have a reset button to clear the windows with a lot of different filters.

I also like the story templates. Any chance to make the template save (and reproduce) the size of the new story window?

As is normally the case, documentation was overlooked during development and I just started working on it today. I think I'm going to have to take it in breaks so I don't pull all my hair out.

I would create two weapons on your action tab (make sure one has the damage for two hands and one for one hand). Ensure you "equip" "both" weapons in the action tab in preparation mode. (If you don't, when you switch to combat mode the weapon you did not equip will disappear for combat view). Then when you switch to combat mode you will be able to choose either one. Don't create in the inventory tab as if you drag two of the same weapon into the inventory tab it will only populate one on the action tab I believe. Hope this make sense!

You can also equip weapons in the actions tab when in preparation mode.

The main change is that the toggle (for whether an object is carried or not) has been updated to have 3 states (equipped, carried, not carried). For the 3.5E and 5E rulesets, I also added the automatic adjustment to armor calculations when armor is equipped/unequipped. Also for those rulesets, the equipped state will determine whether a weapon is shown in Combat mode on the Actions tab. Other than those specific implementations, it's just informational. Though, since it's part of the CoreRPG layer, any ruleset can use for additional functionality.

Litvyak
The referenced function that is generating an error is part of the standard API for the FG client. Can you try running your updater again to make sure that FantasyGrounds.exe is getting updated?

Nickademus
Adding a sidebar button does require Lua script, but now it just involves calling a function and providing a single table with some config details to set up a new button. A lot of the SW extension addons use that capability (Lodges in Rippers, Cyberware in Interface Zero, etc.)

Are you saying that you are looking for the story template generated story entry windows to have the same dimensions (width and height) as the story template window that is generating them, instead of the default dimensions? Interesting idea. Would have to investigate to see what it would take. Going to wait to get more feedback before we do much more.

Nickademus
November 1st, 2016, 21:46
Why do some images now not display at their proper size, even after Resize - Original Size? Is there now a minimum width or height that causes FG to ignore the proper image size?

Moon Wizard
November 1st, 2016, 21:47
Pushed hot fix to address sidebar buttons disappearing completely after attempting to load with DOE extension and getting errrors. Now, if you remove all the buttons, the default will be used on next launch.

Danimal66Are you saying that you are looking for the story template generated story entry windows to have the same dimensions (width and height) as the story template window that is generating them, instead of the default dimensions?

Exactly. So if I resize the template to fit a spot on the desktop where I put stories of that type, then all the generated stories from the template would already be sized.

So apparently the new UI options force an image to be wider than it should be if the original image isn't wide enough. This means that some image now cannot be shown without blurriness.

Moon Wizard

zeromex,

* Were the DMG and MM ever shared?
* Did the players open the modules on their end?
* Do those records that they can see have a circled P or circled S next to their module icon in the campaign list?

If circled P or circled S, you can click on the P/S to remove access. Otherwise, I might need copy of campaign folder to see what is happening.

Updating fixes it temporarily, but the problem happens again the next time I start Fantasy Grounds.

It sounds like perhaps your link to Fantasy Grounds is pointing to a different location than the place that FG is updating. So, your link is running an older version, while the updater restarts the version located at the directory specified in the FG App Directory field in your settings.

Check to make sure that the FG App Directory in FG Settings, and the path for the shortcut/link you use to start Fantasy Grounds are pointing to the same directory.

-They have not been shared at any point in this campaign.
-When I asked them they did not have them opened on their end at all along with the fields still being not sharable on mine.
-I did go through the list and only one was shared and none were public.

Wish list I fear. I take it that you mean for example you have a hot key pointing to a section of the PHB and becasue the PHB has been revised that link no longer works? If so I doubt that it would even be possible to change that dynamically give that there's not correlation between where the section pointed to was and where it is now.

Moon Wizard
November 1st, 2016, 23:20
No, I think rob2e is talking about PC/NPC rolls getting updated as the originating sheet gets updated. It requires a completely new set of drag/drop mechanisms to be passed with every initiated drag, in order to capture those instead of the roll when dropping on the hot key bar.

Definitely a wish list item.

Ruleset 3.5

Cant create custom feats, classes, skills(no radial menu and no lock). Under the spells section I can create a new spell but cant edit it.(no lock). I can create a custom spell under a character but I cant drag it to a new spell group in the spells tab. I know in previous versions I was able to do all this custom stuff to varying degrees to make custom modules. not sure if its a bug or if I'm just doing something wrong.

These are all supposed to be read-only views of module data - previously you would have accessed this through the library, now you can control if the buttons are visible on the desktop for direct access. I'm guessing the add spell option is an error as these aren't lists you can add to.

In a campaign in which I have a couple modules loaded, I'm not seeing all of the category/group options listed in the Groups drop-down. In the Story window for example, I'm assuming that all of the values in the right column should also appear as drop-down options in the group control?

Wondering about the group window not being resizable. Specific problem: the old way you could make 1000 story entries, decide where you wanted them, create 20 tabs and then drag the story entries into whatever tab you wanted (assuming you weren't smart enough to plan in advance - ha).

Now when you want to move something into another group, the group window only shows 5 entries and so you have to do some version of scroll while moving an item, or open the item, find the group and drag it in.

So this is MORE work than it used to be using the old way. Am I missing something?

Can the group window be made to be resizable?

These are all supposed to be read-only views of module data - previously you would have accessed this through the library, now you can control if the buttons are visible on the desktop for direct access. I'm guessing the add spell option is an error as these aren't lists you can add to.

So the modules section allows you to customize the tabs. There is a tab for Spells. So I add that tab and go in.

I see the groups (PHB/DMG/Book of Lost Spells etc)...then

I created a group (Called it Converted Greyhawk) and then added a spell and a dialog box come up. I was able to "add" two spells (enervation and limited wish :) )

I am assuming that players will not be able to use these spells. I did not think we could add to spell lists...but it seems I just did...will that break something...?

Maybe a bug, maybe not: I am able to click-drag races and classes back to the originating window and make an editable version of each (example in screenshot). Didn't try with any of the other new window types. The only thing not editable is the title.

Turn on Dice: Manual Entry in your Campaign Options

Initiate an action that would normally automatically roll dice. For instance, drag an attack from an NPC to a player or vice versa. A new window should pop up with a box for each dice and a default value of 0 for each. Put in the value that the player or GM actually rolled into the proper "bucket" and hit enter to move through the fields and then commit or click on the checkmark to roll all.

If you want Fantasy Grounds to roll it as normal, just click on the dice icon on the pop-up window and it will roll as usual.

rob2e,
The limited view of tabs is not that different than the previous version, since you could only see about 5-6 tabs before having to expand the window to see more. In fact, the additional tabs weren't even accessible at all without expanding in the previous version.

You can drag the link to change the group that a record is assigned to from either the list or the individual record, and drop on the group you want it to belong in. It works very similar to a folder paradigm, and that's where we want to go long term. This is just the first step down that transition.

The group window was deliberately limited in size, so that you could still have room to display the records list as well. If we make more room for the groups, then there is less room for the records. Since people will be navigating records much more than groups, it was a tradeoff. I will look at whether we can make it a little more dynamic with the height of the list window. It's not something built into the FG client, so it will require some extra coding.

poobah_1,
You can share these spells with the players by dragging the link onto the chat window to make them public. This is just the first step in making spells a more full-fledged record type that can be managed and shared by GMs, and eventually placed into modules.

benjihad,
It's a bug, but it shouldn't hurt anything. While you can edit the text of the classes and races, it does not change the mechanical aspects of those races and classes, so you wouldn't be able to create custom races or classes like this. Custom races and classes will still require a new custom module, made from Par5E or by directly editing XML. This is why the list is set up to not allow creation of new records.

markdowney,
I'm seeing scroll bars on my version (at least if there are enough groups to warrant scroll bars). See attached picture. Can you show me what you are seeing?

UPDATE: After Moon Wizards update, groups will now be available for selection. Problem solved - but I still liked the previous selection better. With the colored icons in different colors and symbol styles I had a very fast way to distinguish modules. Now it's not so fast to click...

I cannot post pictures (as some can) to this thread, however with V3.2.0 I can just group by 'some' groups, not all. That is, I found only the groups (all) and (none) to be selectable, even if purchased and own created modules were opened in the library.
This lead to group all containing a dozen paged of entries, which are not sortable. Selecting individual tabs was much easier in the past, IMHO.

Are you saying that when you click the down arrow to open the Groups that it shows all the Groups as in the Graphic and that you can only select All or None but wouldn't be able to select the MM or PHB?

November 2nd, 2016, 22:37
No, it displayed just the 2 groups(all and none) before Moon's update.
Alle entries were listed as records nevertheless, but couldn't be grouped.

Now I can group all groups. A 'Filter' to select 'combined' groups would be nice. However entries in one group are now spread along several pages. Instead of just scrolling I additionally click back and forth.

In the graphic above there are 4 Groups, all, none, PHB and MM. If I click on the PHB then only those entries relating to the PHB then show up. You are saying that the PHB doesn't show in the groups, only all or none? Or are you saying that the PHB does show up in the Groups but clicking it doesn't filter the material only from that group?

Talyn,
Check your Windows Defender or security software to make sure it didn't get quarantined. For some reason, security software does not like auto-updating software.

Targas,
It sounds like you can now access all the groups again. We haven't explored whether to have a multiple group filter, though it's an interesting idea.

The paging is a necessary requirement of the ability to have thousands of records; we tried putting them all in the list at the same time and performance was very poor. Now, it shows 100 per page. Try using the search filter as well to narrow your targets before paging.

A little info would allow us to help you. What ruleset are you running? Have you checked any extensions you have enabled for compatibility updates - the majority of extensions will need to be updated with any FG release, not just this one.

Hello Darkreaper, I'm sorry to hear that you are having these problems. The most likely culprit is a conflict with a community created extension. Can you disable all community extensions for the ruleset and try it again and then if you are still having problems, please provide a description of which ruleset you are using and if possible, a screenshot so we can see what is occurring.

Use the Library sidebar icon and then GM or manually select tools from that view.
As for no dice - it is mentioned many, many times that extensions often have to be updated to work with new updates.
Most extensions are developed by other community members and tehy will get updated when they get updated.
Try disabling your extensions and do the above step.

You need to make sure your armour is equipped. It also might not make any difference on an existing character with the same existing armour.

The equipped gear option is an icon that replaces the simple carried checkbox. It will show an large empty brown circle if not carried, a circled bag if carried or a circled shirt if equipped.

Option question. Has anyone figured out if the auto-center map new option works for the GM AND the Player? Meaning, if I turn on as the GM, will the players maps auto center during each turn? The reason I ask is I usually do not have the option Turn: Skip hidden actor turned on as I don't want to automatically skip a MOB that I might spring on the players. However, if I have the auto-center turned on and Turn: Skip hidden actor turned off, then my map auto-centers on the hidden creature. Also, I suspect it will work this way for creatures hidden under the mask.

I'm just trying to determine if I want the auto-center turned on if it might tip off my players where hidden creatures are. I love the release! Very cool stuff, just trying to figure it all out.

Auto centre is an option for both DM and player. However they are separate entities. So whilst the DM will autocentre when he clicks next turn on the CT it only does so for him only. Autocentre will only work for the individual player and centre on his character - nothing else. Hidden or invisible NPCs will be skipped and won't be autocentred.

(And I worked that out by doing what Trenloe suggests - while he was writing his post of course)

Greetings,

I'm just now seeing the update. My group's next session is on Saturday, so I'm not willing to experiment prior to that. Following Saturday, I will have 2 weeks to prepare, and get ready with 3.2. So, I will not allow my FG to update, and I will, preemptively, tell my players to not update, until after our Saturday session.

Based on that, I have a couple of questions

I have read the entire thread up until this point. Am I correct that there is no change to the internal format/xml of Campaign modules? In other words, will the module I have been developing on 3.1 work, unchanged, on 3.2?

And, if one of my players inadvertently updates to 3.2, will that create a problem for them? And, in that case, will there be any way to downgrade?

I'm really looking forward to getting to know the new FG!

Thanks.

- s.west

swest,

There is no way to downgrade versions, so definitely contact them early.

The module formats have not changed. That said, you may have to change the XML structure of your modules to get them to embed in the master campaign lists, depending on the ruleset. See this developer wiki article:

I've done this a few times in the past; it's never worked. Players see a red button and mindlessly push it, even if you told them not to update.


And, if one of my players inadvertently updates to 3.2, will that create a problem for them?

When the second decimal of the FG version changes (the 1 to 2 in FG 3.1.6 -> FG 3.2.0), no clients of a higher or lower second decimal may connect. So if they update to 3.2.* and you are running 3.1.* FG will literally tell them they cannot connect to your server and cease running. They will not be able to play until you update

Double check the following items:
1. Launch FG and click Settings. re-enter your username and confirm your password. Also check that your license key is entered and still active if you have a subscription. Re-run an update.
2. Inside your campaign, go into Modules and then Library and see if they show up there for activation

If they don't please send a screenshot of the following to [email protected] and we can help.
1. FG Launch screen
2. FG Settings screen
3. Library > Modules screen

Done. I also am running on a Mac, in my case in a previously working bottle under PlayOnMac. Castles & Crusades, CoreRPG and Fate Core all throw errors and drop me into a campaign screen with only the usual topmost icons (from combat tracker to effects) "Characters", "Tokens", "Library" showing if I turn extensions off same as Asgurgolas and only a Locations icon if I switch my DOE extensions back on.

FWIW 5E, Classic Traveller, Dresden Files, & Savage Worlds campaigns all load fine while AFF2E & Foundation are unable to load their rulesets (base.xml) and offer to reload my data : looping on "yes", crashing on 'no".

One feature seems to not be working. Dragging a result or text back onto the chat window no long reposts it. For example, a player rolls a skill check into the 'Dice Tower', and cannot see the result. I sometimes like to share the result, and could just grab and drag it back to the chat window to show the result. That no longer happens.

It's a very good upgrade overall. Good work by Smiteworks.
I understand the need of minimum width for images because of the title and Unidentified Map/Image fields (at least that's why I think it's there) but this is really killing the image quality. I have 350X450 images at ~200 kb or less that look sharp in my image editor or viewer but look like potatoes in FG. Am I going to have to spam the players' screen with images twice as wide just to get a decent result? If it is indeed the need for image name and unidentified map/image in the upper portion of the window, why not tuck it in with the other tools like mask, draw, erase, etc.?

I just connected with a Mac user and helped them complete the installation. They had installed through Steam.

Steps:
1. We made a backup of the FantasyGrounds.app file that contains all your custom content.
A. To do this, launch Steam and go to Games > Library.
B. Find Fantasy Grounds on the game list on the left, and right-click on it and choose Properties
C. Go to the Local Files tab of the properties window and click on Browse Files
D. Copy the FantasyGrounds.app file and make a backup copy pasted to your Desktop or other location for safe keeping
2. Back in the Steam properties dialog, click on VERIFY INTEGRITY OF GAME CACHE. It should report the number of changed files and it will revert it back to a beginning state
3. Wait for the new files to finish downloading and then launch Fantasy Grounds again. It will show an earlier version and will have the FREE version without your purchases or license. Your stuff will still be there but won't be visible. Have no fear.
4. Run an Update as-is. It should update to version 3.2 FREE
5. Once that is complete go into Settings and then re-enter or right-click and Paste your License key back in. Set your username and password as well. Then run another Update. Your license key if purchased from Steam will be on the Steam game screen for Fantasy Grounds under the "CD Key" menu option.

Option question. Has anyone figured out if the auto-center map new option works for the GM AND the Player? Meaning, if I turn on as the GM, will the players maps auto center during each turn? The reason I ask is I usually do not have the option Turn: Skip hidden actor turned on as I don't want to automatically skip a MOB that I might spring on the players. However, if I have the auto-center turned on and Turn: Skip hidden actor turned off, then my map auto-centers on the hidden creature. Also, I suspect it will work this way for creatures hidden under the mask.

I'm just trying to determine if I want the auto-center turned on if it might tip off my players where hidden creatures are. I love the release! Very cool stuff, just trying to figure it all out.It works differently for players and the GM. The players only center on THEIR turn... the GM centers on everyone.

That image indicates that something is blocking the Updater from running on the Internet or blocking you from contacting our patch server. What anti-virus are you running and can you check to see if you can add an exception for it?

Is there a tutorial or an updated list on the wiki of how the new things work? Finding a lot of really cool things in this new update, that just don't work correctly (As far as I know), and I can't tell if it is user-error, or something is seriously amiss. An example would be wit the new Quests Feature. I have filled out as a GM the list of quests available to each player, an dplaced them in proper catagories...but when I log in on my other computer as a player. This list isn't seen anywhere? Are these shared? Or is it something local to the computers?

Quests, just like any other record in the FG campaign, need to be shared before the players will see them. You might not want them to see them - especially if you're using a ruleset which uses XP for quests, then you might just want to use them as a GM reference and to allow drag/drop quest XP to the party sheet for XP distribution.

This is a hell of a video. Thank you. Still a lot of questions on Quests though. Found you can share them, but it shares with EVERYONE. I can't recall a specific example in which you could share individually within FG, so I suppose I can't expect that from quests. Though if I have individual quests meant to be for their eyes only, I am unable to share with just them.

Another thing that confuses me is that the GM is able to sort these quests in to created groups, but all the players get for groups is (All) or (none) the groups don't seem to carry over, nor do they have the option to create their own groups.

Drag the link of the quest to an individual PC portrait to share with the owning player.

That is correct, this is by design on the player side. The idea being that only a few things would ever be shared with the players at any one time. The devs have answered the reasoning behind this recently, but can't find it at the moment.

EDIT: If the individual player want to do some form of organisation, they can put a bunch of links in a "note" that they own. But, of course, if the GM stops sharing a record the link will no longer be valid.

Not that I see many players doing this, but another option is to use the hotbars to organize links. Between all the regular bars and the Alt+Shift, Shift+Ctrl, Ctrl+Alt, Shift+Alt+Ctrl combos, there should be enough for decent organization.

Do you think this will be an issue for my players as well? Just thought it was strange I could see the groupings in one and not the other. Is that to protect from players seeing a grouping name the DM might be trying to keep secret? Just curious.

This is correct. Players don't see groupings other than all or none. Moon Wizard posted the reasoning behind this somewhere in this thread. Or maybe in another thread.

I appear to be having performance issues since 3.2 upgrade in Savage Worlds. I have been in the process of creating a Curse of the Crimson crown for Savage worlds. Tried the same thing in a Pathfinder game and duplicated the same performance issue.

In the Story window, if there is standard text, chat text (i.e. to send to chat window), links to handouts and links to encounters (i.e. Zellara's Home if you know the modules...), the window frame is very unresponsive when you try and drag it - take 1 or 2 seconds to move to where the mouse pointer has been re-positioned to. There is also some noticeable lag when typing in the window at times.

I am running on an i7 laptop with 16gb memory. The CPU rarely gets above 25% and the memory used is never over 30% - so it appears not to be hardware related.

How much memory if FG using? FantasyGrounds.exe is a 32-bit application, so it is limited to 2GB memory use in a 32-bit operating system and somewhat less than 4GB (around 3.7GB) in a 64-bit operating system.

Fantasy Grounds is using 1,330.4 MB and < 1% CPU. I just noticed that when I do drag the story entry window around that the CPU usage for FG shoots up to almost 12%

Yeah, that's expected. Is it only story entries with links/chat text that cause the issue, or does a basic story entry (only text) cause the same issue that you reported above in post #207?

EDIT: And are you using any themes?

ColinBuckler
November 5th, 2016, 18:50
Hi,

No themes.

A bit sluggish with an empty story but acceptable. However the more story text/links/chat that is added slows the window refresh down.

I have the latest all drivers are up to date, Windows is fully patched....

Sounds like a graphics card redraw issue - under the main FG settings window (accessible from the launch screen) check what the setting for "Cross-platform compatibility mode for Linux and Mac" is set to - change it and see if it makes a difference. If changing it doesn't make a difference, then disable it (no check) and try looking at your graphics card advanced settings - anti-aliasing has known to cause performance issues in FG, look to disable that for your graphics card.

Was advised by support to run the update via a VPN and I'm pleased to report that this solved my issue and the update ran and my campaign content appears to be intact. I do hope this doesn't mean I need to run my hosted sessions through VPN since I know that impacts performance but otherwise thanks for the help Doug and Damned.

HI,

After a lot of investigating I can confirm that this is not a Fantasy Grounds issue. It appears to be related to the Windows 10 Anniversary upgrade and how USB ports now work when using a port replicator. Microsoft, in their infinite wisdom, decided to change the way the USB drivers work....

Further investigating has identified that the problem exists with other users and exists in other applications, though to a much lesser degree than FG.

I am travelling in China and struggling via slow VPN to update. Just took a long while to DL the latest Volo file to be told that it could not update the "vault".

China seems to be locked down cold and even the captcha does not display when I try and access the forums without a VPN.

I ran the update again and the file worked. I had to revert changes for the module to get it to work, but images now show up.

Posting here as suggested by Zacchaeus for issues with 3.2

In the Savage Grounds Ruleset I get the following
https://puu.sh/s7bDK/455f0b0fb8.png

This issue comes up when making a ranged attack by dragging the attack roll from a Colt 1911 (deluxe savage worlds module) onto a target in the combat tracker.

As Skellan added "I get this too. If you place the tokens on the map and target there, the issue disappears. Not sure what's causing this"

Can you disable all extensions and then try it again? Use the Library button to toggle the buttons shown.

You probably have an "unpacked" copy of the (old) ruleset in your rulesets directory. Delete or rename this, and the problem should go away.

Not to mention C&C has multiple mini-sheets instead of a single mini-sheet, which seems more useful?

Are you using the 4E.pak ruleset or did you unzip the ruleset? If so, use try normal .pak one which gets updated.

So another thing that I've noticed, is that FG tends to crash, it asks if I want to close the program or wait for the program to respond. I'll usually wait, and it responds then I'll make another selection, and the program will go completely full screen (overlapping the taskbar) and stall out. I even started a test campaign with no extensions activated and it does the same thing. I even tried it on my wife's license and it was doing the same thing and she doesn't have any extensions.

Edit: I shouldn't say every time, but often.

November 6th, 2016, 21:54
So, I will not allow my FG to update, and I will, preemptively, tell my players to not update, until after our Saturday session.
I've done this a few times in the past; it's never worked. Players see a red button and mindlessly push it, even if you told them not to update.

Well, sure enough, everyone read my e-mails and texts with instructions to not upgrade until after our session (last night)... everyone, but one, that is. The one that is notorious for not reading e-mails and texts. He couldn't join the game.

Rather than do without him, we decided to go for it, and I had everyone upgrade. I turned off all the extensions I had been using (that, likely, would not have worked), and played extension-less.

The session went well enough. We had a few little oddities, but nothing that prevented us from making progress.

Regarding 'oddities', I do have a couple of questions. I had only read up through page 15, when I posted what Nickademus quoted above, and I have not, today, read the rest of what has been posted (24 pages). However, I will ask my questions anyway.

My group is playing a PFRPG campaign, and after the upgrade we experienced [UNTRAINED] results on Skill checks, even though the player had ranks in the Skill. Also, the number that FG rolled for the Skill checks were the correct numbers (with ranks and other modifiers applied). No other errors were seen when that occurred.

The second problem occurs if I click on certain 'Special Abilities' links on the Character Sheet. Anything Class-related always returns (in the Chat window):

Could not open sheet with data from unloaded module. (PFRPG Classes)

Has anyone else experienced either of these?

Thanks,

- s.west

This isn't normal, nor should be expected. Seems like it would be best to start a thread in the House of Healing. My first guess would be you have too many tokens in your shared folder or maybe too many maps in your campaign.

To start on this, what o/s are you running? Can you figure out what to do to repeat this? How large does the FG process get?

In Savage Worlds, trying to export a token module. When dragging the folder with the tokens in it, I get the following error:


Script Error: [string "utility/scripts/export_tokens.lua"]:25: setPrototype: Invalid parameter


When I drag individual tokens, they appear in the box fine... problem is who wants to drag a couple hundred tokens individually.

This is the same issue I get when opening larger modules in the 4th edition ruleset such as heroic feats or all powers. Check your CPU and memory usage when this occurs and let me know if one or both of them spike to 100%. If so, its the exact issue I have for sure.


Sadly I don't know how to fix it >.<

Forgive me if you've figured this out already as I have not taken the time to read through this entire thread to see (I have to get ready for a game tomorrow!). But, your problem looks like exactly the same problem I had after I updated.

Solution: Click on "Library" bottom right. Then on "GM" in the upper left of that Library window. Everything comes back.

That is an old link to the base module. A while back I combined the race and class module together; this will change the module reference name so FG won't find the old link.

Just delete that link and drag a new one in from the PFRPG Classes and Races module.

Hi Celegar,

As per normal when updating FG, have you disabled any/all of the Extensions (and updated to the latest ones) - this is the primary problem we've been finding when we update.

Let us know how you go and we'll get you sorted.
