    Ok, don't worry. The fastest way to know the Wizard is watching my tutorials, very short videos with many practical examples of use.

    Here is a list of all of them:

    I'm writing because I'm running into a roadblock using the software, and wanted to ask for your help.

    One of the main things I'm trying to do with the software is re-create a few sheets from other games. Attached, you will find a sample of one of the sheets I have in mind.

    S&W-3rd-Character-Sheet.jpg

    My original thought is to take the sheet, and use it as a background image, so that I have a guide for location, size and spacing for items such as the fields, buttons, text areas, etc. Once the fields are setup, I can remove the background image and replace it with only the border. this should allow the created fields to remain in place, while keeping the overall aesthetic that I want for the ruleset (see picture below):

    S&W-3rd-Print-Character-Sheet.jpg

    So far, I have not found a way to do this, and have been flailing around with the program - I have a mental image of what I want, but haven't been able to load the image within the Ruleset Wizard.

    Can you offer any help with this?

    Thanks for reading!

    Any and all help would be greatly appreciated.
    Thanks,
    Lensman.

    Is it possible to use a custom image for the Fantasy Grounds Desktop, as well as creating a set of custom decals?

    I have used the GMW Campaign Toolkit, but I'm wondering if there is a way to import or combine a file created with this program into the finished file for the ruleset wizard. The end result would be one file that would act as an extension containing a combination of both files, as opposed to having to load 2 separate files...

    Any help is appreciated!
    Thanks for reading,

    Hi Lensman, that is easy, follow these steps:

    - Add a new frame to your project, select your template image as Frame image and set the offset to 0,0,0,0 (the default)
    - Close the frame editor window, so the wizard will add it to the global frame list
    - Go to your character sheet window and select the new frame in the "frame" property

    To change the desktop you can add a new frame to your project and name it desktop, so you will replace the default desktop frame.

    CoreRGP allows you to add your own desktop decals. To do this you must:

    - Add a new Icon to your project.
    - Add a new script to your project, add an onInit function to it and call the OptionsManager.addOptionValue function to register a new DDCL (Desktop Decal) parameter.

    Example:

    Code:
    function onInit()
        OptionsManager.addOptionValue("DDCL", "Ruleset Wizard", "NewIcon", false);
    end
    Hope this helps.

    Hey psicodelix! I've dabbled with extensions by building on what others have done and cracked open morecore and made very minor tweaks but I don't have a coding background. I'm still interested in buying the ruleset wizard and trying to build some custom rulesets. Do you think it is possible for me to do that without a coding background? I've thought about taking some basic online lua courses. Just curious...

    Hi Gwydion,

    Ruleset Wizard can help you make character sheets with very basic automation without the need to know xml or lua, but reaching some levels of automation in a ruleset is a challenging task, and the program can't do this for you. Besides learning the LUA language you will need to know well the Fantasy Grounds internal object model.

    If you really want to learn how to make your own rulesets the Wizard is the easiest way to start, as it helps you get through the initial stages of creating the ruleset, and exposes you to most of the available options and properties in a clear way. You can also learn by opening the rulesets generated with the wizard and seeing how the program does things, but developing at a high level will take you quite some time.


    In any case, first of all, I recommend you to download the demo, watch the video tutorials and do some tests by yourself.
