      I found another unarchiver that would extract the PCGen 2.0.3
      (2001-06-29 22:00) files without crashing, and began to attempt to
      create a character. I am still having point purchase problems. I have
      prefaced my observations about possible bugs with "BUG?". I hope this
      is useful.

      Execute pcgen.jar

      Load the modules for Dungeon Master's Guide, Player's Handbook, and
      Sword and Fist.

      On the "Options" tab, selected "Use Purchase Method", "Unclude Skills:
      Untrained", "Debug Mode", and "Load Campaigns".

      Created a "New" character.

      Saved Character as "Rain.pcg".

      Attempted to click the "Classes" tab. PCGen required me to choose a
      race first. Chose "Human".

      Attempted to click the "Classes" tab. PCGen required me to choose an
      alignment first first. Chose "Chaotic Neutral".

      Clicked "Classes" tab. Selected Ranger, selected Favored Enemy. Hit
      Points show as "7".

      BUG? At first level the Hit Points are supposed to be max.

      Changed Hit Points to "10".

      Saved Character as "Rain.pcg".

      Went to "Stats" tab and began to adjust stats. The point total reads
      "0 (0)".

      Increased stats to 10,14,12,14,12,16. The point total reads "0 (0)".

      BUG? The point total isn't working at all now.

      Checked the "Main>>Options" tab to make sure that "Use Purchase
      Method" is selected. It is.

      End test. Debug window follows.

        Sorry.

        I just -- something that's different than expected isn't "broken",
        especially when it actually conforms to the rules in the PHB and SWRPG
        better than the proposed "solution".

        With PCGen, generate your abilities (step 1). Then, without marking
        it down on PCGen, you can select your race/species (2) and then class
        (3). Then assign your abilitiy scores (4), and record your species
        and class in PCGen (5).

        Making a request for a new feature is a perfectly fine thing. I
        personally would like to be able to go back and ex-post-facto change
        my abilities, with PCGen accurately counting my purchase-method
        points. But that doesn't make the way that PCGen works wrong. And
        claiming that such a feature request is "basic functionality" that
        should have higher priority than support for actual game rules, and
        that PCGen is an unusable waste of time unless it has this
        secondary-to-the-actual-rules feature . . .
