      Hello all:

      I just dowloaded the latest version of PCGen. I was re-creating my
      3rd level fighter/2nd level psion and when I added the first psion
      level it gave me the option to specialize. I hit the specilize
      button and instead of showing me the specialties it showed me an
      error (which basically stated that the psionic's source book was
      nowhere to be found). I copied the psionic's source book file from a
      previous version into the new one and this did not help at all. Any
      ideas? Thanks!

        Hm - try a fresh install of 2.6.1. I don't think anything changed
        with the names or locations of the files, though I did have to make a
        change to the specialist file for psion for 2.6.1. You could just
        delete the data directory tree and re-unzip pcgen261_part2of2.zip.

              skills are 2 points.

              And more, now I have no powers to choose.

              I was building a nomad (18dex) and when I get to the spells screen,
              the spell window (top left) just has "-Psion" in it. The class Info
              block (bottom right) doesn't have a known column and Primary Stat is
              listed as "Other" and even stranger, School comes up as Telepathy.

              Don't know if it'll help, but here's the pcg:

                That was very helpful.... did you select "None" instead
                of "Specialist"? From your pcg it looks like you did. If you choose
                Specialist and then Nomad from the next list, everything gets
                generated properly - including spells and skill costs.

                  One note, though, in psionicshbclasses.lst, where the specialist list is
                  referenced, the |None|1 should really be deleted. There's no such thing as a
                  non-specialist psion, so that option shouldn't be presented.

                        should also be removed. That shouldn't have anything to do with why
                        skills and spells aren't working because I removed the column header
                        for that column and was able to create Psions which got the spells
                        and skills properly. I'll take another look at it since I'm working
                        on metamagic feats and spells right now anyway.
