Re: [pcgen] Re: LOADING SOURCE FILES (SORTA) BROKEN (5.15.3, 4 & 5)
- Are you unable to select the sets you need because they are red? If so, then remove all your sets after you unload them (if you loaded them)... shut down the program, restart the program... select the rsrd complete, then add your homebrew sets. if they change red, no big deal... that is part of the new PRECAMPAIGN token, just as long as they are correctly on the selected side things should be fine.
However, I must ask...
Do your sets no longer work?
Is there anything acting up?
If not then I think things are good. Please let us know if something isn't working though.

The problem I am having is, I use ALL the RSRD sets, not just the
basics. I have quite a few of the non-OGL books coded for my own use
and it can really mess me up if some of the main sources are not
here's what has been happening (not just this release but the
previous two as well):
all the RSRD source files are red. all of 'em. when you try to load
them in anyway, you get the RSRD header but not the filenames
themselves. for some reason they seem to work anyway. however, on the
previous release (version 5.15.6 was released -after- this thread
started) it broke, and it only loaded half of the RSRD lst files on
the right pane, and the rest were still listed on the left in red.
THEN the latest release became available, and now it's doing the same
as originally, just loading the RSRD header but no files on the
right, but still appears to be working ok.
I had totally uninstalled PCGen prior to installing the new one, and
it retained my old settings from the previous installation(s).
where is the file stored that retains that if not in the pcgen folder
itself? i am wondering if deleting that file could help fix the

my Windows system, puts it in "C:\Documents and Settings\Brad\.pcgen".
I usually set it to "PCGen Dir" to keep everything self-contained.
That's one of the things I always have to change when I upgrade, as I
have a couple of different versions loaded.
