    If the NPC I'm attacking is already targeted by me (Ctrl+left click), is it not enough to add the needed damage dice and do the roll?

    I don’t understand the question. Can you expand on what you mean.
    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/

    There are two ways to do extra damage (assuming that the extra damage is just extra dice of the same type as the spell being cast). The first is to create a new line for each possible variation (so 2d6 at level 1, 3d6 at level 2 or whatever). The second is instead of double clicking the damage; click on it and hold and then drag the damage dice. Right click to add more dice until you get the correct amount and then drop that onto the target either on the token or on the Combat Tracker.
    Sorry Zacchaeus, I was referring to this post.

    I'm still not sure what you're asking, but if I assume...

    To add additional damage to an attack, such as when you are upcasting a spell, or have a situation (hex, hunter's mark, etc) that does additional untyped damage and just want to add it, what I do is to roll the die/dice, drag the results to the modifier window, then roll the damage. FG will add that as the modifier to the roll.

    Just rolling a die even if you have something targets, FG doesn't know its damage (or healing) and therefore won't apply it as damage (in most (all?) rulesystems). But, you could just roll the d6, and then drag the results to the Wounds field on the CT and FG will assume it's damage. But, it will be untyped damage, if that matters.

    Did I guess right?

    Okay, I can live with that .

    Its no different than when playing Face-to-Face

    Thanks.

    I'll stop trying to wrack my brains for a cunning coding fix

    Maybe a Zen master will attempt a work around for an extension of the future.

    Actually, there is an extension to cast at a higher level. It is still an Alpha build, but you can check it out here:

    Okay....been watching Philip's aka Zacchaeus' videos for the past few days, going through them one by one, and now I feel like an FGU God. (I'm not, but I'm WAY more capable than I was 72 hours ago.) Big thanks to Phil for doing these. Anyone new to FGU (I had no experience with FG before jumping in) I highly recommend them:

    Just start at the back and work your way forward. Lots of things I didn't realize I could do in FGU and I learned I can. Customization here I come. Thank you, Zacchaeus!
