        Thanks for the information but I seem to be doing something wrong. I'll try
        to outline what I am doing and maybe someone can point out what I am
        missing.



        1)So I downloaded the file and placed it in the PCGen folder
        (C:/programfiles(x86)/pcgen/pcgen5164)

        2)Then I open PCGen, go to Tools and Install Data

        3) Click select, find the
        5164_paizo_pathfinder_ultimate_magic_playtest_round_3.pcz and click on it
        and open

        4) Click data and install

        5) I got the message Data set Paizo - Pathfinder Roleplaying Game Ultimate
        Magic Playtest 2 installed successfully, click ok, click cancel and I'm back
        at PCGen

        6) Go Settings, Load Source (currently I have PF RPG for Game Masters,
        Pathfinders RPG for Players - Advanced and Pathfinder RPG for Players (WIP)
        ) click Add, choose Pathfinder Roleplaying Game and OK.



        Here is where I am a bit lost. I have looked under Alpha Datasets, Custom,
        and Paizo Publishing but have not found anything mentioning Ultimate Magic
        Playtesting. So what am I missing?

          It will give you the option to pick and choose from installed datasets.
          Sometimes datasets are incompatible with each other and you have to
          check the source info screen to determine what works with what (but you
          probably won't encounter that until you have lots of datasets).

            Hi Folks!

            The way the Playtest set is set up it requires the Core Rules and the APG, but does not recognize either the PF got GMs or the PF for PLayers loads as compatible so you will have to use the Advanced Source Load screen to configure the set.

                When loading sources after the first time, pick "Use Advanced Screen."
                It will give you the option to pick and choose from installed datasets.
                Sometimes datasets are incompatible with each other and you have to
                check the source info screen to determine what works with what (but you

                  You need to create a custom item for those. In the gear tab, right click
                  on a base item (e.g. scale mail) select "Create Custom Item" and a
                  dialog will appear allowing you to add enhancements, change the base
                  material, override the default name, weight, cost etc.

                  Cheers,
                  James.
