hello,

It has been quite a while, but I am happy to announce that Ruleset Wizard is finally a reality.

There are still many tests to be done, errors to be corrected and many things to be improved, but the application is stable and allows to generate extensions with multiple types of controls and options.

I've published a website to keep track of the project. There you can find my development blog, with example video tutorials of the main functions. You can get all the info at www.rulesetwizard.com (https://www.rulesetwizard.com).

The application is still under development, so it's not ready to be launched, but if any of you want to support the project you can do it by signing up for the early access program, and get access to the beta version.

Here you can see a presentation video of the project:

I am really enjoying this. I've been playing around with it all day.

Where is the best place/way to submit feedback on the app itself? Here or is there a discord or some other location?

Today I noticed that the windows were not honoring the width parameter when loaded. After cracking open the generated xml, I saw that the width parameter was misspelled.

Also, I noticed that the window minimum size did not appear to be recorded in the xml.

Hi mattekure,

Thanks for your report, I'm glad you're enjoying the program. For the moment you can post your feedback here.

I will add these corrections in the next hotfix which will be ready in the next few days. You will receive the update as soon as it is released.

I'm thinking about my next video tutorial. Are there any controls you find particularly confusing for me to talk about?

mattekure
September 9th, 2020, 12:44
I havent played around yet with all of the controls. One thing I wasnt sure how to do is to add a header with the standard close, lock/unlock, name that is common for nearly all record types. Also, for windows that allow resize, how do I add the little resize icon in the bottom right corner?

For the dropdown list, is the dropdown always sorted alphabetically? Is there any way to get it to sort in a specific order? In my example project I had a dropdown that had a movie rating, G, PG, etc. But when sorted alphabetically, they were all out of order, G, NC-17, Other, PG, etc.

Also, can you add the Multilinespacing for the labels control? Right now it would only allow a single line, but labels do support multiline.

psicodelix
September 9th, 2020, 22:09
The dropdown has an "unsorted" property that causes the elements to be displayed in the order in which they were created. I will add this property in the next revision. I will also add multiline for the labels.

For the header text you can use the "Window title" property.


For the resize icon, the easiest way is adding a Custom control with the custom class name "resize", and anchor it to the right bottom, but you can add a simple icon likewise.

And for the close button you can use another custom control with the custom class name "close_base", anchoring to the top right.

Maybe I could add specific properties to the Window to handle these common controls, I'll think about it.

A few enhancement requests.

Could line numbering be added to the text editing areas like the lua coding and manual xml files?

Could you add a new primitive for adding fonts. It would need a way to add the font ttf file, and generate the xml to add the font. If this is possible, having it added to the font dropdown list for the various text controls would be awesome. If not, then adding the ability to type in the new defined font name instead of picking from the dropdown.

psicodelix
September 10th, 2020, 22:47
you are a big fan of fonts, aren't you? :)

I'll tell you a secret. There is a hidden button in the Wizard:

39248

At some point the wizard will include a font editor like the one you have described. In the meantime, I could allow the property to accept other fonts in addition to those on the list.

I will add the line numbering in the next revision.

I think strong font support would be a big deal, I would probably want to match fonts to the norm for the game being converted.

LOL, while yes, I am a fan of fonts and have a number of font extensions available here on the forums. I am more interested in having the ability to almost never edit xml directly ;)

I agree with the other poster that having a font utility will really help developers get the look they want.

A couple of other things I was thinking about. Currently, the extensions it outputs are only for CoreRPG. Any chance you could add in the ability to select the rulesets that the extension is intended for? So if I want to make a 5e extension, I dont have to manually go into it after creating it to change it so it loads in 5e.

One other item that isnt directly related to editing properties, but it would be very nice to have the ability to add comments to the xml and lua files generated so that copyright notices can be included.

Hello everybody,

Thank you Psicodelix for your contribution with the Ruleset Magic program, it will help us very much with the ruleset design. I have just installed the program and I haven't proved it a lot, but it has very good prospects. I am following your videos as training, I hope be a ruleset designer in some days ;) ;) ;)

One question: Is there some way to copy an XML code in order to charge an existing element? For instance, I want to add a number box to the encounter PF2 window. Could i charge the window XML file and then using the Ruleset Wizard to add the number box? I have create a new XML file in my project but I do not know how to charge it in the graphic interface.

Thank you in advance.

psicodelix
September 14th, 2020, 08:38
Hi Noalco,

you have 2 options. You could add a XML file to your project and add your custom code to it, or you could use the window editor.

To use the window editor you have to create the battle_header window class, set the property merge to "join" and add your new control in the desired position. You can use its "insert before control" property too if neccesary.

I will make a video about that at some point, but in the meantime I've attached an example.

Hello everybody,

I have done all the tutorials, and I have learned a lot about the Ruleset Wizard. I have realized that it would have been great for me in the past when I was implementing some homerules extensions :D:D:D Now I only have to fight with the FG inner structure but the graphical interface is very easy to do with this program.

However, not everything was going to be perfect ;). Don't worry, I have found only a couple of possible minor improvements:
- All text and buttons in the "Custom Properties" window are in Spanish. This is not a problem for me, I am Spanish (as you know ;) ) but I think that not Spanish speaking people will appreciate if this window is in English.
- When you are doing a project and select "Create new Ruleset", the program asks you if you want to save the current project. However, if you select "Open Ruleset", it doesn't ask you if you want to save the current one. I think it must ask you too as the "Create new Ruleset" button does.

Thank you and good work ;)

psicodelix
September 24th, 2020, 15:04
Hi Noalco, thank you for your comments. About your questions:

The custom properties editor, and common open / save dialog as well, are standard system controls, so it's features are inherited from the operating system and it's messages should be showed in the user's language (However, I have not tried installations in other languages).

You're right, it should ask for saving before open another project, I'll fix it in the next update.

I'm still having crashes on export. I tried various things to narrow it down. I have attached the examples here.

The file Font30.rwp has all of the fonts added. It will export just fine.

The file ExtendedLanguageFonts.rwp is a copy of the Font30.rwp file, with 1 script file added. When I try to compile this, it crashes.

psicodelix
September 24th, 2020, 22:01
Hi,

I've tested your attached projects and it worked fine.

To try to narrow the problem please check this, after the crash look for this folder:

C:\Users\[username]\AppData\Local\Temp\RulesetWizard\ExtendedLanguage Fonts\

This folder is used by the wizard to create the extension file structure prior to the packing. Check if all the files exists in the folder of if there are some missing.

Maybe the folder already exists when you generate the extension, try to delete the folder before compiling.

mattekure
September 24th, 2020, 23:29
Ah, that worked. I went in and deleted everything in there. It appears one of the fonts was marked as Read Only somehow. Once I totally cleared that folder, it exported fine.

Thanks!

could you add the ability to include a generic text file. The file does not need to generate xml in the output extension, but just be included in the exported extension. My intention is to use this file as a copyright notice, or other important notes.

I wonder do you plan to implement some sort of import-function for exsisting (not encrypted) rulesets? As far as I can see you'd only be able to open projects that one already made, which means if someone wanted to do adjustments to existing extension/rulesets he would have to rebuild it completly?

I found a potential problem testing the wizard with FGUnity.
Not a bug but a change in behaviour between FGC and FGU. Stringfields no longer show up static-assignments (which is how the label-function for creating a window works in the Ruleset Wizard) and Jpg recomends we use the StringControl instead.


Ah, I see what is happening.

In FGU, I see that I had updated the static tag to not be used for fields that are database-linked. This is because these fields would be overwritten every time the window is opened in the database, instead of storing any data changes between sessions. It creates a problematic situation in usage, so I disabled "static" for database-linked stringfields to keep this from being done inadvertently. Static will only work for stringcontrols right now.

Changing any stringfield using a static tag to stringcontrol will actually speed up your window creation times, since they no longer need to create and manage database links.

I'm writing because I'm running into a roadblock using the software, and wanted to ask for your help.

One of the main things I'm trying to do with the software is re-create a few sheets from other games. Attached, you will find a sample of one of the sheets I have in mind.

40500

My original thought is to take the sheet, and use it as a background image, so that I have a guide for location, size and spacing for items such as the fields, buttons, text areas, etc. Once the fields are setup, I can remove the background image and replace it with only the border. this should allow the created fields to remain in place, while keeping the overall aesthetic that I want for the ruleset (see picture below):

40499

So far, I have not found a way to do this, and have been flailing around with the program - I have a mental image of what I want, but haven't been able to load the image within the Ruleset Wizard.

Can you offer any help with this?

Thanks for reading!

Any and all help would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks,
Lensman.

Is it possible to use a custom image for the Fantasy Grounds Desktop, as well as creating a set of custom decals?

I have used the GMW Campaign Toolkit, but I'm wondering if there is a way to import or combine a file created with this program into the finished file for the ruleset wizard. The end result would be one file that would act as an extension containing a combination of both files, as opposed to having to load 2 separate files...

Any help is appreciated!

Hi Lensman, that is easy, follow these steps:

- Add a new frame to your project, select your template image as Frame image and set the offset to 0,0,0,0 (the default)
- Close the frame editor window, so the wizard will add it to the global frame list
- Go to your character sheet window and select the new frame in the "frame" property

To change the desktop you can add a new frame to your project and name it desktop, so you will replace the default desktop frame.

CoreRGP allows you to add your own desktop decals. To do this you must:

- Add a new Icon to your project.
- Add a new script to your project, add an onInit function to it and call the OptionsManager.addOptionValue function to register a new DDCL (Desktop Decal) parameter.

Example:



function onInit()
OptionsManager.addOptionValue("DDCL", "Ruleset Wizard", "NewIcon", false);
end


Hope this helps.

Hey psicodelix! I've dabbled with extensions by building on what others have done and cracked open morecore and made very minor tweaks but I don't have a coding background. I'm still interested in buying the ruleset wizard and trying to build some custom rulesets. Do you think it is possible for me to do that without a coding background? I've thought about taking some basic online lua courses. Just curious...

Hi Gwydion,

Ruleset Wizard can help you make character sheets with very basic automation without the need to know xml or lua, but reaching some levels of automation in a ruleset is a challenging task, and the program can't do this for you. Besides learning the LUA language you will need to know well the Fantasy Grounds internal object model.

If you really want to learn how to make your own rulesets the Wizard is the easiest way to start, as it helps you get through the initial stages of creating the ruleset, and exposes you to most of the available options and properties in a clear way. You can also learn by opening the rulesets generated with the wizard and seeing how the program does things, but developing at a high level will take you quite some time.


In any case, first of all, I recommend you to download the demo, watch the video tutorials (https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLSaS6dEtuko9b9rxIC_Xvgfk616me59yE) and do some tests by yourself.

Hi,

for those of you interested in modifying the combat tracker, I have just published a post with an example:

LOL, while yes, I am a fan of fonts and have a number of font extensions available here on the forums. I am more interested in having the ability to almost never edit xml directly ;)

I agree with the other poster that having a font utility will really help developers get the look they want.

A couple of other things I was thinking about. Currently, the extensions it outputs are only for CoreRPG. Any chance you could add in the ability to select the rulesets that the extension is intended for? So if I want to make a 5e extension, I dont have to manually go into it after creating it to change it so it loads in 5e.

One other item that isnt directly related to editing properties, but it would be very nice to have the ability to add comments to the xml and lua files generated so that copyright notices can be included.

I am also going to request a font utility!! thank you for all your hard work!

November 3rd, 2020, 09:26
Absolutely, but that feature will come in the later stages of development, when all the basic functions are completed.

Glad to see you are planning this feature - I am really looking forward to being able to edit an existing extension and/or ruleset. :)

Speaking as a VERY satisfied buyer, this is probably THE best place to begin. Still as Psicodelix said, it will take some work and study to do full automation. But for a basic ruleset, reskinning etc it really is amazing. I am currently hacking and stabbing my way towards a WH 4e Ruleset on it...

Hi Alberto - Ive been testing it out for a couple of hours. Some real promise here.

Could you explain the anchoring setup please? Mostly for anchoring things like a scrollbar to a list etc?

Feature requests:
Ability in Dice rolling fields to reference other fields in the gui: eg 2d6+skill_bonus
Ability to build lists. At the moment I wrote a list and added New XML file

From my experience using so far I think you still need a half decent idea of how FG works and what things are called to make use of this effectively but it certainly could make some things much easier.

Hello Damian, thank you very much for your comments.

a new dice rolling engine would be an interesting feature, I will work on it.

About the Wizard's anchoring philosophy, it uses a different approach than Smite Works usually uses, one more suitable to a WYSIWYG (What you see is what you get) environment, and easier to understand (IMO) for beginners. This video explains it:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oyHfGbOXZF0&list=PLSaS6dEtuko9b9rxIC_Xvgfk616me59yE&index=3

About the construction of lists, there is the Window List control, the following video explains its use, with an example of scrollbar anchoring too.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qKJa0bM2jj4&list=PLSaS6dEtuko9b9rxIC_Xvgfk616me59yE&index=7

To remove the tabs from the sheet follow the next steps:

- Create a new window and name it charsheet. Set the property merge to join.
- Add a Custom control, set its Name property to "tabs" and the Merge property to "delete"

The application is not ready to edit the generated XML code, because the modifications would not be maintained after making changes in the designer. If you want to see the generated code, the Wizard leaves a copy in your temporary folder, usually in

c:\Users\[username]\AppData\Local\Temp\[RulesetName]\

In the future I would like to incorporate features to help with teamwork and source code control.

You are right that to develop more than just a basic sheet requires a high level of knowledge of how things work in CoreRPG. The structure of CoreRPG is quite complex, and can be overwhelming for those who are starting to tinker with rulesets. My next goal is to create a complete model of CoreRPG, developed with the Wizard, that will serve as an easier starting point for beginners.

Hi psicodelix


I have watched all the videos.
I hadnt seen your newer tutorials where you have provided some more detail to the silent movies :bandit:
These make the videos much more useful - for example this screenshot tells me more than the videos and answers one of my questions.

https://www.rulesetwizard.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/10/image-8-1024x666.png

More doco on the parameters in each object would be great.

For the dice rolling - all fields are properly named - it would be great to be able to reference them in the dice string. That would make that much more powerful.
taking it a step farther you could possibly reference things like targets... :ninja:

Need some help.

I'm creating a unique window as part of my extension. While I have the window created and saved, I am not sure what the coding would be to create a new sidebar button on the fantasy grounds, desktop. Can anyone help with this?

The second option I have for doing this is to add a button to an existing sheet, (say the clans or merits pages in the VTM5TH ruleset).


If anyone could provide an example of the code needed for this, and/or the steps to take in ruleset wizard, I would be grateful....

Hi Lensman,

the easiest way is adding a new button to the Desktop stack buttons (upper small buttons). The sidebar buttons are far more complex, and record list oriented. You can also add a desktop panel with a button (there is an example in my videos).

Attached is a sample project with a desktop button.

- The LUA code of a control was not copied when creating duplicates of that control. Fixed.
- Fixed a crash opening project files with missing icon files
- Allow find and replace in Window controls' LUA Editor
- Avoid window control selection reset on project save
- Don't prompt for overwrite when generating ruleset/extension files
- Added a session log to main window
- Prevent collapse of root node in Ruleset Explorer
- Add anchoring properties to window panels

Found a small error on 0.3.7 that might be of interest for 0.3.8 as well :
Create an icon, assign graphics to the icon.
Proceed to delete the icon from the tree.

FG throws an error, I look into the code and the assignment for graphics is still in the .pak file even after generating a fresh one.
Work-around for anyone else that needs/wants it is so far to create the icon again and just don't use it. At the least it stops the error message in FG.

Hi psicodelix

I would like to add extra values to the NPC sheet.

I have tried various InsertBeforeControl values but to no avail yet.

psicodelix
November 15th, 2020, 17:30
Yes, the problem there is that NPC window (like combat tracker) make use of relative anchoring to make the controls grow down with their content and stack. So, to make room for your own controls you have to insert another control with the same relative anchoring, to push down the rest.

To do this you can insert a Custom Control, set the Custom anchoring properties as required by the current definition of the npc_main window class, and set the Insert before control to indicate the place you want to make room.

https://www.fantasygrounds.com/forums/attachment.php?attachmentid=41149&stc=1&d=1605457686

Custom Anchoring is a property created to solve this kind of complex anchorage scenarios with existing controls, however its use overrides the default positioning and anchoring used by the wizard for the control, so it goes against the general WYSIWYG philosophy of the wizard and you have to dig into the CoreRPG windowclass code to find out how to use it correctly.

I'm currently looking for a way to simplify these types of modifications.

Attached is an sample project.

Tell me if you have more questions.

November 20th, 2020, 23:26
Ok, in fact the ct_entry window class uses two relative anchor controls, top and right, and in the example I only created the upper anchor. Another custom control is needed to set the relative right reference for the other controls. Attached is the example updated.

I don't know if I understand exactly what you want to do, I'll try to answer, and tell me if this answers your question.

Depending on what you want to do you can use different approaches.

If you want to replace the whole file the easiest way is to create a new script and set the custom script property of the ct_entry window class to the new file:

41356

Although normally this is not very useful, unless you want to replace the whole window behavior.

You can also replace a single function by defining it with the same name in the LUA code section of the window. In this case you can also make the code of the original function to be executed using the super operator:

41357

The latter is usually my preferred approach.

Hope that helps.

Hi Greybeardgunner, I'm glad you like the Wizard, your character sheet looks awesome!

The program doesn't update automatically (at this moment), but you only have to download the new version and run the setup with the default values.

These sheets you mention are subwindows defined in CoreRPG "charsheet" window class. As you guess to replace one of them you have to create a new window and name it as it's named in the CoreRPG:

- charsheet_main
- charsheet_abilities
- charsheet_inventory
- charsheet_notes

Yes, but the image have to be a token. Just add a Token control to your sheet, size it as you wish and the player should be able to put tokens from the token box into it.

If they ever get the 'Rolls' feature implemented that damned incorporated into MoreCore that would be a serious game changer with this wizard program.

For a theme, I think GMWintermute's GMW Campaign Toolkit supports CoreRRP based rulesets so might be that it can be used to build one. I'll have to fire it up and see, just concerned stuff will conflict if it's not incorporated into the same ruleset extension.

Damned has promised to show us how to incorporate his Morecore die rolls (at least for Harn) into this wizard.
I think if we had a developed theme, we could incorporate it rather easily into this wizard or at least the final ruleset .pak
Once I get the Char and NPC sheets done it'll be a workable solution.

what? i dont think I did promise that...
there are some nice roll options coming - like really soon - but not MoreCore level rolls yet

have a look at the bonus video I just dropped for some more theming stuff - Bonus Video 1 and 3 are both about graphics and Bonus Video 2 has a little at the end too.
there will be more theming info in the videos as they progress

now - just because you are both pretending to be in the room at the same time does not mean Im ready to believe you are 2 separate individuals

I don't remember reading you saying that about MoreCore either but one can hope, at some point . . . . :bandit:

Also, after researching further, I don't think GM Wintermute's tool will do the panels and such as far as themes. It's mostly geared towards buttons and backgrounds (and decals and the dice tower). At this point I think we'd have to rely on psicodelix's tool for window and panel theme stuff.

@damned After re-reading your earlier post in your RW thread, I suppose you weren't promising anything... Though a little peer pressure can be a good thing!

Bottom line on Harn dice code - Harn has one of the simplest crit systems out there, so the chat telling you whether something is a Marginal Success or a Crit Success is like having whipped cream on your 7 layer chocolate fudge cake (really not that necessary, but nice to have).

@gunnargreybeard I was an airborne ranger for practically all of my career (retired 18 months ago), so my standards are well above those of a "leg." Though I imagine from your adjustable seat in that steel coffin, we all looked the same anyway. ;)

Instead of doing that - export your content to a module and start a new HarnMaster game.
Your HarnMaster ruleset is layered on top of CoreRPG and you shouldnt lose anything (except maybe mask data?) .

I have my eye on this for some time, 50 EUR is steep but I understand the complexity behind writing such software. Still considering, few questions, can't find the answers and videos are not the way to go for me :)

Is it possible to "import" existing work in the ruleset wizard and continue the work without any disturbance or modification of existing work?
What is the license agreement of Ruleset wizards (I can't find the full text in the web page, sorry if I missed the obvious) and is it allowed to be used for commercial products?
Does this support combat tracker in some way or it is just for character sheets

You can copy-paste XML and Lua files into the Wizard.
It wont convert them to its own objects/format and the files will be packaged up in the PAK exactly as you have supplied them.
So you can mix and match files and wizard stuff and for a full blow project there will definitely be plenty of that especially at this stage of the products development.

You can do CT or Calendar etc in this tool but not without a solid understanding of how CT already works and how you will use RW to extend the CoreRPG elements.
There is a very basic example on the Tutorials link.

There are many things I can see psicodelix working on so the product has lots more already planned development and Im sure more on top of that.

Hi Valyar,

Ruleset Wizard can import only it's own projects, not Fantasy grounds rulesets and/or extensions.

About creating content for Fantasy Grounds, you must adhere to Fantasy Grounds license agreement, so you cannot create official content without SmiteWorks permission, and you cannot share copyrighted content. In addition to the software license there is some advices in the disclaimer page:

https://www.rulesetwizard.com/disclaimer/

You could use any tool you want to create commercial products (notepad++, visual studio code, Ruleset Wizard) as they are independent tools that help you creating the final product, a series of xml, lua and image files, packed together. You just have to take into account how and to whom you distribute this final product.

Ruleset Wizard supports almost any Fantasy Ground content. You can find a Combat tracker example here:

Feature Request:

Please give us the ability to set the folder that the extension uses when generating rulesets in a way that is separate from the "open window" interface. I am finding that all too often when saving files, I forget to check the location, and have to hunt for the save file. Being able to pre-set the location to a set folder would be a welcome addtion.

Also, (and this is really more of a "quality of life" issue), any way to add either top & side rules, or a grid overlay? Visually placing elements, even with the aid of the top buttons has been a little tricky, and being able to use a ruler or grid would help someone like me, who has difficulty with "eye-balling" the measurements.

As always, thanks for all you do!

Having a problem (possibly two)

I'm working with a file with a lot of elements. I'm noticing that for some of the earlier windows i've created, when I go to open them, ruleset wizard simply crashes to the desktop, no error message that I've seen. Is there an error log that is created when this happens so that I can check to see if I can figure out what the problem is, (or what is causing the seeming corruption within the file)?

Any help is appreciated! I keep getting to a point, then having to stop and re-build from scratch just to have the same sequence happen again...

First of all, make sure you are using latest version (0.4.2) of the Wizard.

When there is some crash a log is recorded in the windows event log, in the application log. Looking there could give you some clue of the source of the problem.

If the error persists send me the project file and I'll check it out.

No, nothing more needs to be done.


It seems to be a problem related to the font color tag. It does work in FG classic but it doesn't in Unity. I have tried to delete the color tag in the font definition and then it shows the font. I will investigate more about it to fix it in the next release.

Ok, I got it.

The problem is the alpha channel from font color. In FG Classic, if you define an alpha channel of 00 the program interprets it as FF, and shows it. FG Unity seems to lack this feature, so if you set the font color as default 0,0,0,0, unity client don't shows it because it is transparent.

While I fix it you can change the transparency value of your font to 255 and try.

To use vertical tabs you have to use a template that's not included in Ruleset Wizard, but it's planned for an upcoming release.

To open a window you create a button and add call Interface.openWindow in the onButtonPress function.



function onButtonPress()
Interface.openWindow(windowclass, datasource);
end

Ok, i'm trying to modify the sheet for an NPC (via extension) to add an additional filed to allow portraits to be attached, as I have thought of a use for NPC's to have a portrait.

I'm wondering if the correct scripting to use for this would be:


<tokenfield name="picture">

If so, then in the area where I wish to be able to simply drag and drop the link to the npc, should I have the following script added:


function onDrop()
return false;
end

to clarify, there will be two different areas where the portrait will be used: first, adding it to the NPC sheet, and second, another window that should accept any portrait, either from an NPC or PC sheet.

First of all, you are using a old version of RW, please update to 0.4.4, since these properties has changed, and now there is more options.

About onDoubleClick, if you set the Dice roll property it uses the control's onDoubleClick event to put its code, so you cant use both. You cannot use the onDoubleClick to add the bonus to the stack and to roll the dice, but you can make the roll add the field's value to the roll with the following string:

1d10! + {self}


In my tutorial about Dice Roll engine there are some examples:

@psicodelix, another Feature Request is the ability to duplicate windows, it would make designing sidebar menus much quicker and easier.

I cannot express how grateful I am that you are making the Ruleset Wizard, I am enjoying my time using it and am working faster than I ever thought I could.

I'm happy you like it so much.

Duplicate windows would be a nice feature, I add it to the development plan.

all of a sudden with this new update today, all my nodes properties are printing into the lua and causing errors. here is an example of what is happening


function onDoubleClick(x, y)


return action();

return action();

return action();
end

function action(dragInfo)
DiceRollString = StringManager.convertDiceToString(getDice()).. "";
if onBeforeDiceRoll then onBeforeDiceRoll(); end;
GameSystem.actions["damage"] = { bUseModStack = "true", sTargeting = "each" }
ActionsManager.registerResultHandler("damage", managerDamage.notifyRDamage);
local additionalInfo = {};
RulesetWizardDiceRoller.Roll(dragInfo, window.getDatabaseNode(),"damage", "{weapon_name} | Damage Roll {self}", DiceRollString, 0, additionalInfo);
if onAfterDiceRoll then onAfterDiceRoll(); end;

DiceRollString = StringManager.convertDiceToString(getDice()).. "";
if onBeforeDiceRoll then onBeforeDiceRoll(); end;
GameSystem.actions["damage"] = { bUseModStack = "true", sTargeting = "each" }
ActionsManager.registerResultHandler("damage", managerDamage.notifyRDamage);
local additionalInfo = {};
RulesetWizardDiceRoller.Roll(dragInfo, window.getDatabaseNode(),"damage", "{weapon_name} | Damage Roll {self}", DiceRollString, 0, additionalInfo);

I reckon you probably jumped a few versions.
You might need to re-do the roll info - you will see a bunch more options.

Features (Requests) which would make this great tool even greater, in my opinion :)

Would be great if some kind of clipboard function would be implemented, so that you could select objects in one window to copy them to another window.
It would also be helpful if you could select a specific object directly from a dropdown list of all objects created in the project, especially for objects that overlap, such as Sub Windows for tabs.
Also very useful would be the possibility to change a property of all selected objects at the same time.

currently checking the amazing "Christmas challange" video from damned and noticed that the "clipboard functionality" request seems to be allready implemented .. cool!

0.4.4 was overriding controls' event functions (onButtonPress, onDoubleClick, etc) to make dice roll engine work, so if you created some of these functions they weren't executing.

From 0.4.5 these functions aren't overrided anymore, so if you had code in them now it's executing and causing these messages. Check your lua code, if you can't find the problem send me the project file.

It seems there is a problem with the dice roll engine in 0.4.5. I'm fixing it.

Please update to version 0.4.6

Ok, version 0.4.5 caused a little mess in the functions used by dice roller engine.

To solve this:

- Install version 0.4.6
- Check all the controls that make use of the dice roll engine and delete the wrong scripts in the LUA code section.

Questions...

Harn is a little different than your average RPG today in that it has that good ole 90's characteristic of adjusting the Target Number before making a roll, rather than modifying the die roll itself. For example, sword skill of 95 (Target Number for an attack) is adjusted by Physical Penalty (essentially how much load and injuries a character has), say -20 in this example. New TN is 75 (95-20). Player rolls d100, anything under 76 is a hit.
Now, I have worked around this in FGU by simply adding the Penalty (20) to the die roll, maintaining the original TN (95). So, to score a hit, the player would have to roll a 75 or less (75 +20= 95). I have done this, because to my knowledge, FGU isnt setup to allow for a dynamic target number. IE, prior to making a roll, the system accesses the skill level, applies the penalty, then makes the roll with the new target number. Is this assumption of mine correct? Perhaps there is some scripting here that can be done.

This leads to my second question. Harn handles criticals (success and failure) by first, determining if the roll is greater than the TN (failure, equal or lower is a success) and then, second, determining if the number rolled ends in a 5 or 0 (a critical). I watched your vid on result handlers so I think this may be possible to replicate with RW, though I am not sure how to script it to determine success or failure, based on the TN (or roll), see question 1.

try create a hidden field called sword_resolved_target
put some code on penalty and on sword_skill to onValueChanged() update sword_resolved_skill
in your roll use {sword_resolved_skill} as your roll under target rather than {sword_skill}

I want to place a button on the CS that opens a table in fantasy grounds (for example, a hit location table). I have the tables built in FG, I just need to know if its possible to have a button on the CS, linked to one of those tables. Or perhaps have a LUA command on a button that makes a roll on the given table.

psicodelix
January 1st, 2021, 11:08
Maybe the easiest way is placing a Link Field in the CS, and setting these properties:

Record name = tables.id-00001
Window class name = table

you can make a button that make a roll too. Place a button and add the following LUA:


function onButtonPress()
local rTableRoll = {};
rTableRoll.nodeTable = DB.findNode("tables.id-00001");
TableManager.performRoll(nil, nil, rTableRoll, true);
end


Being tables.id-00001 the DB identifier of your table.

That worked beautifully, thanks. Nice button for the PCs to use to determine hit location. Problem is the tables are unique to the campaign I built them in. I can export them to other campaigns but then the "id-000x" links are broken. How do I make the tables an integral part of the ruleset?

You should be able to roll a named table using the rollon command

You could export the table to a module, and make the link field reference the module.

You could always just add the math into the Roll Handler.

You could export the table to a module, and make the link field reference the module.

So I created a module with a number of items (images and tables mostly) that I want to be a part of the final ruleset. This module included the hit location tables. I opened a new campaign with the ruleset and loaded the module. Everything I want is there. However, when I open the new campaign's db.xml, it doesn't list any of the tables from the module, so I can't figure out which id-000x to use on the CS for the hit location rolls. How do I find out how the system has labeled the tables, without it showing in the db file (or force it to load them there).

If I were to go with using a linkreference button to the module itself, how would I do that? RecordName? Custom Properties? When referencing, do I simply use the module name (Harn Ruleset Final)? Would the module have to contain only the particular table I want to roll on?

function onClickrelease()
return TableManager.processTableRoll("rollon", "Hit Locations");
end

Is it possible to inport an already existing ruleset project into the wizard?

Not at this moment. Maybe in the future, but not in the near future.

You can just open an existing ruleset project. You dont need to import it.
You cant import a ruleset.
That is a massive leap in complexity.

Combat Tracker tweaks.
When I load a CS/NPC into the tracker I get a few errors (mostly visual) I would like to fix. Please ref attached image.
1. There is a "ghost" box from the CoreRPG CT that I cant get rid of.
2. When I add a CS/NPC it automatically opens the targeting, spacing and effects windows for each, stacking them on top of each other as in the image. If I click on each of the buttons on top (ie, open and close targeting, effects, etc) it will close the windows.
3. I have no option to delete friendly CS/NPC from the list. Not under menu or by right clicking the CS/NPC in the CT. Deleting non-friendly or foes works as usual.

Combat tracket tweaking is very tricky due to the complexity of the CT window, you will need some custom controls with a specific custom anchoring to make it work propertly.

First of all I recommend you to check the Ruleset Wizard Core project included in your installation folder. This project already has a working implementation of the combat tracker with initiative, defense, wounds and all the basics of most game systems.

I used your example as the base for my own. Loaded it into my ruleset and then minor edits. The biggest was the addition of the fourth input (IL or injury level). I dont have a problem doing my own troubleshooting, trial and error, etc but for the issues above, I don't even know where to start.
