  • Christian Fredrickson

    what no mac version…?

    • Paul Grosse

      1. Download and extract project from the download page, either SF or Github

      2. Navigate to extracted folder

      3. double-click pcgen.jar

      Notes: You might get some warnings about opening software downloaded from the Internet. Go ahead and open it.

      You might need to make sure that “Allow apps downloaded from ‘Anywhere'”. That setting is in System Preferences->General

  • Ian Butchyk

    Having an issue with downloading. When i go to download it, my computer brings up a screen saying it is trying to protect me. I still say download anyways but when i go to downloads and click it, it just does not download. Does anyone else have this issue at all???

  • Justin Kelly

    so how do i get everything pathfinder related to load and actually work? I try to laod everything under sources advanced pathfinder but it only loads the following

    even though i added everything.
    101 1st Level Spells
    Advanced Class Guide
    Advanced Options:
    Inquisitors’ Judgments
    Advanced Player’s Guide
    Advanced Race Guide
    Andoran – Spirit of Liberty
    Animal Archive
    Bestiary 3
    Blood of Angels
    Blood of Fiends
    Blood of the Moon
    Crown Player’s Guide
    Champions of Purity
    Cheliax – Empire of Devils
    – City of Strangers
    Core Rulebook
    Council of Thieves Player’s Guid

    • Paul Grosse

      There are some books that can’t be loaded with each other. Add the Pathfinder RPG Core Supplements source to the sources to load on the advanced screen (which loads

      Core Rulebook, Bestiary, Bestiary 2, Bestiary 3, Advanced Player’s
      Guide, Advanced Race Guide, Ultimate Combat, Ultimate Magic, Ultimate
      Equipment, Ultimate Campaign, & Advanced Class Guide).

      Then you can add the sources that your character needs. the performance of the program slows down if you add too many sourcebooks lo load.

      • Quexlaw

        I hope I will get an answer this late.

        When I try to download the advanced class guide, the requirements say that it needs Ultimate Combat (besides from others). Does that mean that even if you ignored this program, you need to use Ultimate Combat when using the ACG? Are they basically a package that doesn’t really work without the other one?

        • Paul Grosse

          All books are included with the program, just find either Ultimate Combat in the source list, or load the Core Supplement source which loads the majority of books that the other books pull from.

          • Quexlaw

            Thanks for the reply, but that wasn’t really my question.
            My question was if the Ultimate Combat book and the Advanced Class Guide book are somehow a tight package (in the original rules, not the program). So, if say, a GM chooses to use the ACG, does he need to use the UC as well?

          • Paul Grosse

            Oh, okay I thought the question was specific to the program. đŸ™‚ It really depends on the table group, the problem is that Paizo really interlinked a lot of their books instead of being more standalone. Some of the classes and feats and archtypes will reference rules and abilities from other books.

          • Quexlaw

            I see! Can you tell me (I’m new to p&p in general) if especially those two books are connected in a way that it would only make sense to have both of them at the same time?

            My (new) GM is kind of a bullhead and doesn’t want to give us freedom of feats and only wants to use CRB, ACG and APG, which severly limits everything we have at our disposal and it’s not like the other 80% of combat feats that come from other books heavily change mechanics; it’s “more of the same” and less “changing how the game mechanics work”. For example, a “free intimidate check after a power attack” doesn’t really affect anything and it kind of bums me that he doesn’t let me choose it.

  • Tyler Hadland

    How do I get Skinwalker to be a selectable race? For Requirements it says “Requirements: var: PFS_Race_Skinwalker_Enabled at least 1”

    What am I missing?

    • Paul Grosse

      Assuming you are playing in a Society game you need to apply the correct Chronicle that allows the skinwalker race as a boon in the Feats & Abilities > Chronicle tab.

      If you are not playing in PFS, change the gamemode to the regular Pathfinder RPG.

  • Distemper

    So how do I get additional classes to load such as warpriest and the categories under it like Sacred Fist?

    • Paul Grosse

      When PCGen first starts, switch to the Advanced Sources tab and either load the exact books you want, or the Core Supplements set.

      • Distemper

        If a book is not listed such as Complete Divine for 3.5e is there any way I can add it manually?

        • Paul Grosse

          You can either code up the class yourself using the documentation and posting questions to our forums or doing a internet search to see if anyone has posted them to their own website.

          There is also a Tutorial video series on Youtube.

      • Distemper

        Asking because I can not locate sacred fist and the book listed online is not listed in the app
