    Anyone else having a problem with the latest JRE install breaking PCGen (6.06.00 or the RC3 build) with Launch4j reporting that the JRE install is non-existent or that the runtime is corrupted?

    • Paul Grosse

      In Java 8 or 9?

      • Willowroot

        Java 8.101 (64-bit)

        • Paul Grosse

          Confirmed, 101 breaks 6.06.00 at least. But 6.07.00 works fine (at least on my system). I let our code team know.

          • Willowroot

            Cool, thanks, I’ll take a gander at 6.07.00 then!

          • Paul Grosse

            Note, you can run the jar file directly it’s the exe file that seems to be borked.

        • Paul Grosse

          The 102 hotpatch fixes this.

          • Willowroot

            JRE 8.102 (64 bit) does not appear to fix the problem on my system, I get the same error after patching.

            But I’m not in any hurry at the moment, given that I’m moving tomorrow and disassembling my rig for a week.

            Thanks for the info, it’s been much appreciated!

          • Paul Grosse

            That’s odd, I JUST installed 102 at home and just now at work and running the exe works.

    Hello, I’ve downloaded the latest version of the sheet 6.06.00 and using 1.8.0_71-b15 (Oracle Corporation). I’m creating a D20 Modern character and am finding the Character Sheet is forming properly. Under Proficiencies it’s listing all weapons ever created and none of the equipment is coming through. This is also occuring on older .pcg files from an older version.

    • Paul Grosse

      What version is the character from? It appears the char sheet tab is looking for the standard.htm.ftl which has never been updated to work with the Modern system. Either export to “csheet_modern_std.htm” or a pdf using “xlst”

      • James Hollywood

        Brilliant, will try that, thanks Paul

      • James Hollywood

        Hi Paul
        Tried what you suggested, exporting to csheet_modern_std.htm and the data transferred correctly, however that included all the weapons under the proficiencies.

  • Sean

    Been using PCGen for a while and love it. I just added “Enlarge Person”
    to my Pathfinder character and I use the “temporary bonuses” selection.
    He uses a 1d10 axe normally, but the character sheet does not update to
    2d8 on the enlarged version.

    • Paul Grosse

      I’m seeing this working correctly in 6.06.00 & 6.07.00. What version are you using? What sources are you using?

      • Sean

        Version: 6.06.00
        Sources: Pathfinder RPG Core Supplements, Rise of the Runelords Player’s Guide

        Other weapons are scaling but the dwarven double waraxe did not go from 1d10 to 2d8

      • Sean

        So after I got back from the exhibit hall, I tried just unequipping and re-equipping the axe. When I unequipped it, it disappeared altogether from my inventory. I re-added it and equipped it and now it shows fine. It’s like it wasn’t properly seeing the axe as something I own.

        • Sean

          Strangely, now when I uncheck “enlarge person” it gives me N/A for all the damage for the axe.

  • alan

    maybe i’ve missed it but how does one add a heritage variant for something?

    • Paul Grosse

      What books do you get from?

      • alan

        Ah i think what happened is that the books i need just arent in yet.
        The books i wouldve needed are blood of the night, and inner sea races ( which it looks like you are working towards).
        I imagine you are part of the dev team.
        So you should also know that the gunslinger deed dodge is not being replaced by the musket masters steady aim.
        (Or at least steady aim said it should)

        • Paul Grosse

          I’m the PR guy, i handle most of the public interaction.

          What version are you running? Blood of the night is in 6.06.01. And the place to report bugs is jira pcgen org.

  • John

    Automatic Bonus Progression does not appear in the “Optional Rules Systems”, so I’m wondering if I’m missing something or if this has not been added yet? (Pathfinder Unchained is loaded for source material)

    Thanks!

    • Renn

      Ya, been trying to find this too!

  • jemnai

    When is Occult being added.

  • thomas

    is the familiar folio going to be added ? or is it in there already and i just cant find it im using 6.06.01

  • rhjunior

    is there a way to manually add new/homebrew races and classes to the program?

    • nylanfs

      There sure is, and Andrew made a whole video series on how to make your own data.

  • Jeff Dornan

    Any version compatible with mac OS Sierra?

    • Paul Grosse

      If you download the Universal version run the pcgen.jar file. It’s a Java executable.

      • Jeff Dornan

        The Java JAR file “pcgen.jar” could not be launched.
        Check the console for possible error messages

      • Jeff Dornan

        • Paul Grosse

          Make sure you have Java installed on your system.

          • Jeff Dornan

            Already installed Java directly from Apple.

          • Frank Andrade

            I’m having the exact issue — were you able to figure it out?

          • Jeff Dornan

            I sent a ticket to support. Maybe I missed something.
