    Welcome to the FG forums!

    Yeah, this is the main issue - the file has been compressed using something other than ZIP compression. FG can only read standard ZIP compression.

    Ok I am still new and will not likely be using this just yet.

    I am not sure what a parser is for use as an add on.

    Is this to help the GM create NPC/Monster entries manually?

    Hmm. I used 7-zip, which is what I normally used. Unfortunately I'm taking a road-trip today so I won't be able to look at this until tomorrow. For now I'll just remove the extension link and put the coming soon text back in place.

    @Larsenex This extension lets you create NPC/Creature records inside Fantasy Grounds using a copied stat block from an outside source such as PDF. We know from our experience in PF1 that such a tool is generally useful to GMs. Right now there isn't a lot of creature content out there (just Bestiary 1) but eventually there will be 3PP that perhaps don't deliver their products in the FG store, and GMs will need a way to avoid manual data entry in these cases. Also, such a tool will be useful to folks creating 'official' modules (Bestiary 2 and onward) to speed their work.

    New version of the extension has been attached to post #2. This time I just used Windows SendTo->Compressed (zipped) functionality, hopefully this does the trick. I'm at work so I can't test it right now, if someone else could verify it works I would appreciate it. Otherwise, like I said before, I'll get to it tomorrow.

    Yep, that works.

    Ok, I'll need to double-check my 7zip settings when I get home then. I just got a new computer and there is probably some setting I overlooked.

    The extension that didn't work was using LZMA2 compression if that helps?

    I keep getting the same error on parsing:

    Script Error: [string "campaign/scripts/npc_parse.lua"]:69: attempt to index local 'sSection' (a nil value)

    Anything in particular I need to clean up before trying to parse? I am literally cutting from the CREATURE NAME CREATURE # line, and the name and "level" is going in, plus the traits (though that is currently ending with a ,). A couple of creatures got initiative in as well, but the perception field is where things start to fall apart. It's not picking that up, sometimes putting in the post ; items and skills... other times, it's just blank with nothing else listed from that point on in either case.

    See the "REPORTING BUGS/ISSUES" post above, and the caveats in post 1. You can PM the entire stat block you're trying to me directly and I'll a take a look when I get back in town tomorrow. NOTE: This extension should be considered pre-Alpha quality as I've only run a handful of creatures from the Bestiary 1 PDF through it so far.

    There are many places where I assume that things like strikes and abilities are delimited by CR/LF, so make sure there aren't any such things split across multiple lines, or multiple items on the same line only separated by white space. I've already found a couple instances in the Bestiary of Melee strikes split across lines. Eventually I might be able to implement some logic to account for this, but I'm trying to keep it simple and work toward completeness first before adding any more complicated logic.
