Re: [PCGenListFileHelp] [James] Re: Eyeballs requested - what the heck am I missing?
- Eddy is correct... you're copying a Special Ability to make another Special Ability so the syntax is
CATEGORY=Special Ability|Animal Companion.COPY=My Animal Companion
Then, to to make modifications you use
CATEGORY=Special Ability|My Animal Companion.MOD
and then use the tags that need to be modified.

You are using .COPY to create a new ability from an existing one, I haven't
done this myself yet (prefer to create stand alone object) and I see the
docs say there is a new format for it (as we must make reference to
The docs show:
This seems incomplete to me (doesn't show the syntax for the new name) but
my first guess is that the parentheses are not part of the systax, I'd think
it was something like this:
So your line might be:
CATEGORY=Special Ability|Animal Companion.COPY=Sentinel Animal Companion
I might be wrong, this assumes you can't use COPY to make an ability a
different CATEGORY but must be the same as the original. Anyway, try it and
see if that makes the message go away.
I've flagged James, he can confirm the syntax and I think the doc example
needs to be more detailed.
