Re: [PCGenListFileHelp] Need to access (maximum, arcane) casterlevel
That is the prettier way to put it together, you may omit the 'var("")'
but it's better for organizing the + stuff. It's always best to DEFINE
any var to 0.
I don't know where you got 'CASTERLEVEL.Arcane', but that's not a true
var as far as I know. Reason, no VAR is separated by a period '.'.
CASTERLEVEL works exclusively in Spells for that particular class; it
also works in PRECLASS: IIRC, which is where I think you got that
Closest known working code is ugly to put together, but you'd do it like
repeat for every arcane class you employ. The TYPE=CasterLevel means
you'll only get the Highest Value, the rest won't stack.
Beyond that, I can't think of any easier method to get the highest
caster level off the top of my head.
