      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
      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

        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.

              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.
