    Untested possible fix for character bug in SW ruleset...

    I received this in my PM (I have not had a chance to try it myself yet):

    If you look for the line:

    you'll see it lies under the heading of -- Generic Tools. This menu option gets added to the side of the screen so players / gm's can click on it (I believe). The issue is that this only points to the GM characterlist - which doesnt have the options for creating new characters or 'becoming' that character.

    you need to move this line to back under the --GM specific tools heading (I put it under this line :

    DesktopManager.registerStackShortcut("button_tools ", "button_tools_down", "Tools", "sw_tools_gm");

    and then delete it from where it currently is under the -- Generic Tools heading.

    Now this is done, you need to add the following line under the --Player Specific tools heading :
    DesktopManager.registerStackShortcut("button_chara cters", "button_characters_down", "Characters", "identityselection");

    which creates the button for the players to choose characters.
    If it works then Firtun is my new hero!

    My players just defeated an army, had a dogfight with aliens, machine-gunned the zombies, stormed the tower, became Legendary and died heroically

    Yours are still on combat round 6

    Hi,
    I've noticed a small mistake in the code I sent.

    Code:
    DesktopManager.registerStackShortcut("button_chara cters", "button_characters_down", "Characters", "identityselection");
    has an extra space in it (seems to have appeared when I copied it from file). It should be :

    Code:
    DesktopManager.registerStackShortcut("button_characters", "button_characters_down", "Characters", "identityselection");
    EDIT: it looks like the PM has inserted spaces in another line as well so the correct version to go in the --GM specific tools section is this:

    Code:
    DesktopManager.registerStackShortcut("button_characters", "button_characters_down", "Characters", "charactersheetlist", "charsheet");

    For your second ever post I am impressed!

    For me at least you have fixed the most annoying bug that crept into FGII (SWEX)

    THANK YOU!

    I definitely recommend this get updated in the store based version of SW! That is a useful fix! Nice catch Firtun!

    Whilst testing the version mentioned above I have discovered an "issue" can someone with a extension fix/manual fix see if you have the same "problem"

    I can no longer drag PCs from the character selection to the combat tracker, I tend to use it when prepping a session, the fact it no longer works is a minor inconvenience and I would rather lose it and keep multiple PCs working if I had to choose!
