Tried recreating the mod and can't see the tokens.
    Instructions here: https://www.fantasygrounds.com/forum...l=1#post323781 After adding the tokens you need to recreate the module file manually (see below).

    Make sure you compress using ZIP format, and make sure that you compress from within the module directory - not from outside of it. The base module files need to be at the root of the ZIP file. Then rename .ZIP to .mod - and make sure you have view file extensions turned on in Windows file explorer so you're properly renaming the file extension.

    So I just checked and what you did seems correct. It expects that under your base "Kingdom of Ghouls" folder (which contains db.xml), there would be a folder called "tokens" and inside it a folder called "Kingdom of Ghouls". Then inside that folder the image would be "great flameskull.png".

    I just tested by building a new module with the newest parser and then adding the token after. It worked as expected. You can look in the db.xml file to see what it expects. It should look something like this:
    <token type="token">tokens/Kingdom of the Ghouls/great [email protected] of the Ghouls</token>

    So when the parser originally ran, it should have automatically put a "Kingdom of the Ghouls.mod" file (without your token) in the "modules" folder in Fantasy Grounds. Did you delete that one? Did you copy the new base "Kingdom of the Ghouls" folder over to the "modules" directory after you added the token?

    Ahhh, my bad, I zipped from the top level which obviously adds another layer. Thanks all for the replies, really appreciated.

    Parsing wont Work

    Hi guys, was there an update for the parser for 4th edition within the last 3 months. I have the parser and i have parsed all the files except for the monsters. However when i click on the navigate to compendium button it sayd log into ddi but at the bottom of the parser i have already logged in any help would be appreciated im missing that one last module right now and cant get it to pick up my ddi no matter what i do. And yes my ddi is active and current.

    So for some reason the parser, after working OK, now seems to refuse to create the .mod file. I get a folder after parse that only contains thumbnail.png and the definition.xml w/o a database.xml, as well as two txtfiles outside of the folder and a 0KB xml file. I tried to find the utility mentioned in the popup, be according to posts by Moon Wizard it has been deprecated...so I am not sure what is causing the parser to fail in .mod creation, nor what to do to finish the mod file. If the folder contained the db.xml I could jsut zip it up and rename it, but not sure if there is a way to convert the .txt file (that seems to have all of the data from the scrape) into the db file.

    The .txt file has all the data downloaded, so you can use the program to parse that file. Select the option that lets you pick a file and select that file. It should create a module from that data.
