  1. I am wanting to create Starfinder characters using PCGEN. When I go to the game drop down menu and select Starfinder and then select “Add Selected” followed by “Load”, I get an error. I can load other sources, just not Starfinder. What gives??

  2. How do I load the Modern D20 section in PCgen, By the way love this program been using it for years

  3. Hi, I’m having some issues trying to create a Hunter class character and I was hoping you could help me.

    I heard I had to add “Inner sea magic” which I did but nothing changed, it still came up red and saying I wasn’t “qualified to take this class”.

    This is my first time using PCGen so I’d be very grateful for your help.

    • Did you set your alignment to be neutral? PCGen follows the character creation guidelines where things have to be done in a certain order.

  4. I’m looking for how to define a custom skill as a class skill for existing classes, such as if I want to create a custom Profession, and designate it as a class skill for a specific class, or even all classes.

  5. Hi there, recently reinstalled pcgen, due to new hardware. Ever since that, I can create a bard, but it is missing the class-features of bardic performance etc. The only class-features that work is the proficiency in armor and weapons. Tried changing the rulebooks, installed new 3 times by now, in hope that maybe missing files get added, but nothing changes.

  6. Hey there.
    Am I able to somehow print or show a lower level of a character I have generated throug PCGen? I want to use one of my PCGen characters I built to 7th level at 3rd level.
    Thanks for any help…maybe I’m missing something in my absent-mindedness. lol.

    • You can ATTEMPT to take off the levels (don’t save) and it will mostly work. But I would double check and make sure that all the class features and such got taken off. PCGen does not like deleveling so much.

    • I just save my character at each level as “name lvl x” so I can look back if I need to. I found that to be the easiest way.

  7. I am trying to follow how to add custom feats, and it seems like I followed the video correctly, but I am adding a feat without a choice, with mult as no, so maybe I missed something.

    I also notice the video is old and the instructions in the list seem to be different so I am not sure what I am missing to make it work.

    Currently I am trying to add Sacred Vow, which gives a +2 Perfection Bonus to Diplomacy.

    • You could jump into our discord and lay-out your code and somebody will help you debug it. The best way to learn though is to find a feat that does almost the same thing you want and copy and past it, then alter it for your own use.

      Are you adding it to a new copy of the homebrew template files or in one of the supplied data files?
