    Having trouble with Powers in Mutants & Masterminds

    Having bought the ruleset for M&M, I'm finding that there appear to be some issues with it, and I'm not sure where to go for help... no user guide, no obvious other source of support...

    The current really annoying issue is the Powers tab. When I drag other things into the various windows they translate just fine and turn into proper entries, but when I do that with powers – nothing. And powers are sort of the heart of a superhero game.

    I can try to recreate them by hand, but I'm not yet familiar enough with the game mechanics to be sure I'm doing it right; and besides, I paid for this to make my life easier :-/

    Anyone out there familiar with this ruleset and able to offer some suggestions?

    Thanks!

    Welcome to the forums!

    The confusion is coming from their being two tiers within the character sheet powers - the top level is "Array". I'm not familiar with M&M but from the ruleset code all I can see this being is a header for a set of powers.

    Once you have created an array (via the right-click menu "Create Item" option), you can then drag powers and drop them on the array name.

    Ah, I see... yes, once I created an array, the drag-n-drop of specific powers/effects worked. D'oh! Not too intuitive, but I see how it works now. Thanks Trenloe!

    Any thoughts on the Combat Tracker issue? I can get NPCs into the CT, but not a PC. I feel like I must be missing something essential here, too... :-/

    Also, can you point me to any sort of resource that covers this ruleset? Even a user-made guide or reference would be welcome...

    Thanks again!

    Drag the PC from the "character selection" window or from the portrait on the desktop once a player has selected a PC.

    I'm not sure if that exists. Your best place to start is look at the ruleset sub-forum here: https://www.fantasygrounds.com/forum...mp-Masterminds
