I have problem with LOOT. When loot are drop on character’s inventory, stat bonuses are not calculated properly (usually are doubled). Sometimes dress off and dress in fix the error but sometimes i have to change it manually.
Despite to above problems I found ICRPG splendid. Me and my team had great time playing.

Thanks for the feedback. When you drop loot in a character's inventory, does the item get added with parenthesis and stat bonuses in the name of the item? For example: 'Ring of Might (STR +1)'

It sounds like when you equip a piece of loot the bonus that's added to the loot column of the stat is twice what it should be. In that case, would you be able to send me a zip file of the campaign where this is happening so I can see if I can reproduce and debug this?

EDIT: Another thought. There's a setting called "Add bonuses from CARRIED loot" in the options window. Is there any chance that you've changed that around the time the issue with the loot appeared? Changing that setting would mess with how loot bonuses are added to characters.

It's sounds funny but on my comp rest of loot works correctly. However my players complained on loot problems.
I will conduct another play at Friday and ask my players for screens.

Ah, yes, Common Armor. I thought I fixed that. The reason that happens is the system reads the description of the item to figure out which stats it should add. It sees the "+1 ARMOR" and "+10 ARMOR" in the description and adds those together, which is where the +11 is coming from. I'll change the wording so it doesn't do that.

Hi
After weekend of playing i have to confirm that loot bonuses are doubled when players drag and drop it to PC cart. Moreover this error takes place only during play in player client. When I checked it on my comp after session everything works great however when players join me they complain about it.
Second bug is even more strange. Program shows afford numbers in different order for GM and player. As I checked correct one is player notation and this one is used for calculation for program. To sum up only problem is different data for GM. I think that below screens explain it better.

Thanks for the feedback. I've tried to reproduce this on my own but I can't. It might be related to internet connection, but I don't know enough about how fantasy grounds syncs players and GM data to say that for sure. It would help if I could load your campaign and see if there's some data corruption there. Can you zip up your campaign folder and send it to me? I've got no idea how the characters sheets both show different things to GM and player, and how the TOTAL stat is different than the BASE+LOOT. Those should 100% be linked together.

I attache my ICRPG campaign data (images excluded due to technical restriction). You can find there my personal made loot that probably isn't very well designed but all errors that i report are connected with original loot.
P.S.
You done good job with adaptation of ICRPG and all errors I reported found as minor problems easy to evoid.

The system never automatically added bonuses from bio-forms and archetypes, since that changes with whatever setting you're running in (Alfheim vs Altered State vs Vigilante City vs Blood and Snow, etc.)

Just bought the extension and a few things don't work on my side.
- Death timer rolls but doesn't update the turn, it stays at 6
- Death roll doesn't reduce the death timer it stays at 6
- Other rolls seems finicky. Sometime it add, sometime it's not.

Also probably not sure what are Other Rolls and Effects. Any video tutorial how to use the character sheet ?
For example i have weapon gem add a bonus to one weapon so how do you select a specific weapon it affect the weapon effort to ?
This is why tough other rolls might be the solution for these items

I'll take a look at the death timers. I just did a quick test and I'm seeing different behavior in Unity vs Classic. It should be that rolling a death timer will change the duration of the "Dying" condition on that character in the combat tracker. The actual ticking timer lives as a condition in the combat tracker. For some reason this is working in classic but not in unity. Thanks for bringing it to my attention.

Regarding other rolls and effects, those are going to be removed with the next update (this upcoming week, Tuesday I think). I've replaced those (quite hacky) methods with a much more robust action system that lets you create any number of actions with custom attempt and effort rolls, and effects. I put the details of the update another thread (https://www.fantasygrounds.com/forums/showthread.php?67097-New-Feature-Actions-Tab).

As for the weapon gem, until the updated Actions tab comes out this week, the easiest way to handle it is in the character sheet's inventory. I've attached a screenshot of a sample character's inventory for how I'd do it. The system should automatically parse any item you add and add the stats accordingly, but you can manually do it by putting the stat bonuses in the parenthesis, separated by commas. "(+1 STR, +1 WEAPON)". Then, as long as the item is equipped, it will add that as a loot bonus. Of course that adds stats globally, not just for a single weapon. For now (the next few days), that's something you'd have to handle manually. The new Actions tab will allow you to make a custom attack with +3 effort very easily.

I've considered putting out videos, I'm just not setup for that. I'll take a look again and see if it's something I can do.

That's great, I'm glad the update is working for you. The EASY and HARD button only work with stats rolls made from either the PC or NPC sheets. They don't work with the standard dice that sit at the bottom of the window.

I'm getting an issue where I've built a piece of loot using the guidance in the effects thread, but it's not applying correctly after being added to the character sheet. It winds up looking like this:
46024

As you can see, it adds an extra minus sign in some cases, but also reorders the bonuses and then incorrectly applies them.

As you can see, it adds an extra minus sign in some cases, but also reorders the bonuses and then incorrectly applies them.

There's a few things going on here. First, the effects are meant to be used in the combat tracker. They won't work correctly in items. Instead, items pick up on the natural language present in the book to determine their bonuses. Instead of using 'CHA: -1', use '-1 CHA', for example. Below is an example of how its expected.

46026

Secondly, there is an actual bug where negative values are parsed incorrectly and a second '-' is added. I'll look into this. It shouldn't matter for the purposes of automatically adding the loot bonus however. At least, it didn't when I tested it just now. All of the changes to loot bonuses were as expected.

Lastly, the reasoning behind the different syntax for items and effects is one of expected complexity. You should be able to create items and describe them in the exact same manner that the core rulebook does, and have things automatically work out what bonuses should be added. Effects are a Fantasy Grounds construct, and many rulesets use the same format when handling them. That's why the effects format is more complex.

Hopefully that clarifies things a bit. Regardless, thank you for bringing this to my attention; I'll get a fix out soon. In the meantime, after you add an item to a character's inventory, you can always edit the name of the added item to remove the extra '-'.

Hello Everyone! Currently I'm setting up an ICRPG Campaign on Fantasy Grounds, but something caught my eye today while I was running some testing.

GUN Effort is not being Updated, even when increasing or decreasing the BASE attribute, when you roll the dice, it does not add up on the roll, it just rolls a simple D8 with no modifiers for BASE or LOOT Attributes, I'm using Fantasy Grounds UNITY, with the Quickstart 2e Extension and the Mastery Extension.

Let me know if I can provide additional information for this... and thanks for the help!

Hi, we experience two bugs with core module + extensions Vigilante City, Quickstart, Mastery

"Effort" rolls in Action rolls will result in error message.

And Monsters are dealing all the damage only to Stun instead of HP.

Any advice?

Drifter

Can you post the error you're getting, please? I can't reproduce it with those extension; effort rolls on PCs seem to work fine for me. Do they throw errors all of the time, or only in a specific circumstance? Like maybe only targeting enemies that have chunks, or only against PC. Is it all effort rolls, or only ones for a certain power or from a certain character?

For the issue with vigilante city and stun damage, the VC extension changes the default damage type to stun, since that's what was in the book. You can specify stun, hp, or both damage on monster actions using, and it will apply damage to the correct health resource. Doing so looks like this:


1d12 stun damage
2d6 sp damage
3d8 hp damage
Weapon HP and SP damage
Ultimate stun and hp damage
triple magic sp and hp damage

Ah ok, I didnt know that Vigilante City defaults to that. I added HP to the action description and when I click being "weapon" and when I click on it, both WEAPON and HP will get a blue background, but the roll is still dealing stun damage.

For the "action" issue
- I added randomly Silver spear into inventory. I opened the item and added to Actions Effort, chose Magic Effort and wrote Holy as damage type
- I go to action tab and click on Effort of the spear to roll
- I get error message:

So there's some weirdness in how FG handles text changes. After you change the text in that field to "Weapon HP" can you try tabbing to the next text field, then trying it? It could be storing the old roll (which uses stun) until you deselect the field. If that still fails, can you try rolling from the same text but directly from the NPC sheet?

If that doesn't work, try replacing the existing extension with the version attached here. Not sure if it'll make a difference, but just checking stuff.

(still looking into the effort issue)

This is bizarre. I'm actually really confused how you got the effort roll to show up on the actions tab by editing the item AFTER you added it to the PC inventory. The action tab rolls only populate when the item is added to a PC's inventory. Once the item is in the inventory any changes to the actions on the item should have no effect on the actions tab.

That said, the VC extension update might fix this too, as the error indicates the extension might be out of date. Let me know if that's the case.

Sorry to bother still, but our GM just got the system and I am very excited about it and digging into it. So I found some other issues.

Bio-forms are not increasing stats. Of course, there is a simple workaround to just increase basic value of ability manually, I was just curious, if there is supposed to be an automation or not.

And is it possible to have an Ability tab? I saw it on advert screenshots. We are going to play more in accord with master edition with expanded class ability list and it would be convenient to have it. If it is easy to add it. Otherwise we are using TAGS for class powers/abilities and given the size of the window, it's not that convenient (although I udnerstand, that original Tag rules from B&S simply weren't supposed to be numerous).

EDIT:
I am not sure if I am using Battle Fury in the right way - I am creating Effect with Fury: 1 and when I am rolling, Fury in combat tracker is increasing on a failure as it should, but its value is not added to any attempt/check roll. How do I add it?

And scrolling up/down in the Action tab is not possible, if you have too big list in there.

And I really like your work, the system is beautifully automated and I hope this is useful and not annoying :)

Ah, that makes sense then, I don't think I ever planned, designed, or tested for that so it's cool that it works.

There's no automation for bioforms adding their stats, so adding stats manually is the correct way to handle that.

Yeah, that's totally doable. I'll put together an extension for it some time this week.

You're doing everything correct. This one I can reproduce so I'll look into it.

Sorry, I've been caught up with holidays, work, and other projects. I don't know when the December update will be out, that's from Smiteworks. For the time being, these two files will fix the issue with Battle Fury and the scrolling actions tab.

Rename 'manager_actor_ICRPG.txt' to 'manager_actor_ICRPG.lua' and paste it into the scripts folder of the ruleset.

Copy record_char_actions.xml to campaign folder of the ruleset
