    Test Release v3.3.2

    FG v3.3.2 is now in beta testing.

    As always, we're a small company so we rely on our community to help sound out each new release. Thanks in advance to all those who pitch in.

    Please see the sticky thread on public testing if you want to be involved. Only the Test mode slot contains this version. I will update this thread as I release new iterations of the test version.

    Key Things
    1) Always backup your campaign data before running the test version.
    2) If the GM is running on test then all of the players will also be running on test.
    3) If you encounter an issues log them in the relevant testing thread - don't use the generic House of Healing, but use this thread.

    Thanks,

    If there is something that you would like to see in Fantasy Grounds that isn't currently part of the software or if there is something you think would improve a ruleset then add your idea to the wish list http://fg2app.idea.informer.com/

    Lots of good updates. One question/concern though;

    • [5E] NPC spell descriptions will no longer be automatically modified to add DC and attack modifier information when added to NPC records.


    I'm not sure I understand why this was done or why it's a good thing. Does this make the NPC's created in FG have different text than what would be expected in a printed source? Does this change the desired text for the Spellcasting Trait? I assume the spells still get parsed and the DCs calculated when added to the CT...

    The spells still parse and the correct attack and spell DCs are produced. The change was made to accommodate the situation where for example an NPCs healing spell gave ndn + <ability modifier>., which previously did not work with the existing wording. So, now spell attacks and DCs are calculated depending on the NPCs ability score or CR. If you check on any Spellcaster from the MM you'll see the new wording (which basically removes the bracketed +x to spell attacks, Spell Save DC x)

    Thanks for this. It makes embedded images much more viable. (An extension I still have to release to the public.)

    Will this have an option to turn off? I'd prefer for FG not to remove effects without asking.
    I never claimed to be sane. Besides, it's more fun this way.

    @LordEntrails,
    The attack and save information used to be parsed from the spellcasting trait when the NPC was added to the combat tracker, and then the attack and save values hard coded into the NPC actions text. Now, when you actually make a roll from a NPC action, it will check for the spellcasting trait at that time and apply the correct modifiers based on the current wording of the spellcasting trait. Also, it fixes a couple other issues, such as the one Zaccaheus mentioned.

    @Nickademus,
    No plans to make an option at this time. Let's see how it works in action, before adding "yet another option". The caster can always re-apply the effect the rare situations where something needs to be rolled back, but this will do the right thing according to the rules in an automated way. Plus, this is something that is commonly forgotten to be accounted for by most players (i.e. Concentration requires save on damage). It's really no different than an effect being removed automatically when it expires.

    Regards,

    Thanks Moon. Good work (as we've come to expect)!

    No not, me, I've never forgotten to remove an effect or to roll (or have my players) roll. Nope, not me. At least not since this morning...

    [5e ruleset] When the option to reroll initiative on each round is ON, the 'Next actor' button rolls initiative every time it is used but the current actor loses focus. Essentially, can't move between actors on the CT without rerolling initiative and losing focus.

    Make sure that all of the actors are visible - the eye icon for each entry in the CT is solid. The default campaign setting is to skip the initiative slot of invisible entries.
