  1. OK...it's unlikely that we'll be able to get away without any political discussion taking place in the forums (despite the fact that the forums are for an RPG and there are plenty of other arenas for political discourse) -- so we're going to make a dedicated spot for them to take place. With rules that will be followed. Before I get into the rules, a little bit about self-policing. You guys are a good group. I'm assuming that, political differences aside, you'd like to keep each other around. So you're going to be the first level of checks that will take place. This is the ONLY US political discussion thread that is going to be around. If you see someone start another thread for politics, or if you see another thread head that direction, it's in your best interest to shut it down quickly. Once I get wind of it, the thread originator (or poster who diverted the thread) will be moderated or banned from the forums (depending on the nature of the post). No arguments, and no discussions. No, I'm not going to sticky this thread. No I'm not going to make a general announcement on the rules. The rules are largely unchanged from the general rules of the forum -- ensuring that others are up to speed and don't unintentionally violate them is on you. Talk to them before I do. Now, onto the rules for this thread: 1. I will be monitoring this thread heavily. Email notifications, reading along as time allows, etc. I don't give warnings -- if you fail to follow the rules, you will be moderated or banned outright. If this bothers you, I would suggest NOT participating in this thread. Find any of the plethora of other areas of the interwebs for your political discussions. 2. Lies or half-truths which are determined to be intentionally communicated on your part will not be tolerated. You present the facts. If you're not sure of the facts, then you don't post. If you want to post something that you saw and agree with, you will want to make sure you do your due diligence and research it first to ensure that you are not passing along lies and/or half-truths which happen to be in line with your political view. 3. Attacking of other forum members is subject to immediate banning. Don't like what someone has to say? Great! Post a factually accurate counter point to their argument and make your case. Discuss the topic, not the poster. 4. This thread is meant to be a place where ADULTS can have a SANE, RATIONAL discussion of politics. Posts which are viewed to be in violation of this concept will not be tolerated. Yes, this is a very general rule -- use your brain and interpret it to the best of your ability. If you feel that this makes it difficult to know where the "line" is and that you may accidentally cross it, then I would strongly advise that you not come anywhere near the line. If this means that you are uncomfortable posting in this thread for fear of crossing an arbitrary line, I would refer you to rule 1.
  2. Extra Disadvantage (5e)

    Blue text means the display has been edited (manually) - likely an accidental copy/paste. HD will not automatically update the text as the disadvantage is edited/changed, since you've indicated that you want something custom. To get back to the default display, click on the text to edit and then clear out everything - HD will see empty display text and revert to its default.
  3. Store is Broken

    Yup - you're not doing anything wrong at all. The item in question needs to have shipping methods defined (something Jason and Co. need to handle)
  4. Black Panther with spoilers

    I agree with you on Civil War -- it was a different take, and one that didn't really jibe with me. Winter Soldier was darker, but not in the same way - I liked it a LOT more than Civil War. IMO, Black Panther is different from Civil War or Winter Soldier. It doesn't shy away from some pretty deep subject matter, but it handles it extremely well. It's still decidedly a comic book movie and has a villain that is...understandable. Given enough depth to make him interesting, believable, and even (to an extent) sympathetic. There is still a two dimensional villain...but that's left to one of the Tolkien white guys to play
  5. Store is Broken

    Contact form or open a Support Ticket.
  6. Store is Broken

    Same answer as before: store is working just fine. No applicable shipping options were defined for that item.
  7. Black Panther with spoilers

    Fair enough -- Nothere will no longer be joining us in these forums.
  8. Black Panther with spoilers

    Round and round we go. I suggest you perhaps read my posts. Or keep going and see where it ends up.
  9. Black Panther with spoilers

    Not well. I did read the entire post (when it first went up)....and decided not to respond to it until after I had actually seen the movie, so that I could determine if perhaps there was something I wasn't aware of behind his apparent need to express that particular outlook. If this is the hill he wants to die on, then so be it. Banning will occur. Alternately, if his intent was NOT to express a racist opinion, all he really needs to do is say "sorry, that was not my intent and I apologize that it came across that way"
  10. Black Panther with spoilers

    Read my post. "No offense, but..." is generally a lead-in to something offensive. "This isn't racist, but...." is generally a lead-in to something racist. Without any context for your opinion other than "I haven't seen it," your statement applies to Black Panther in specific, and is viewed as a reflection on what is known about the movie. Now, if you preface your statement with other reasons/explanations it becomes significantly more palatable -- just like any other review (from those that have seen it). "I really don't like Marvel movies, and while I haven't seen this one yet, I can only assume that it will be the same poor acting, poor cinematography, etc." That explains your opinion as a general opinion of Marvel movies and not specific to Black Panther. So, again, I would strongly suggest that you explain your statement a bit more thoroughly. Unless, of course, you actually meant to be racist...in which case I would strongly suggest that you quit posting entirely.
  11. Black Panther with spoilers

    This whole post has been bugging the crap out of me...and it comes down to the first statement combined with the general sentiment. If you haven't seen the movie, the only thing you have to go on is the general knowledge of it, which is largely focused on the overwhelmingly black cast, direction, and theme. So you're judging a movie as crap based on that general knowledge -- which is racist. I'd rather strongly suggest you consider how your post is coming across. If you don't mean for it to actually be racist, you may want to post and amendment to explain your intention. If you do mean for it to actually be racist, you may want to find another site to frequent.
  12. Loading Prefabs

    Simply put: you don't. You load (and UNLOAD) prefabs on an as-needed basis. Memory issues will be the least of your concerns with a large number of prefabs loaded -- each and every ability needs to go through multiple rounds of calculations anytime there is a change anywhere in the active character. That is a LOT of processing cycles.
  13. JSON Export Template

    Still no clue what you're after. If you're worried about special characters in XML, you use <![CDATA[]]>
  14. JSON Export Template

    Not entirely sure what you're after...if you want HD to export XML, make and XML export format.
  15. JSON Export Template

    Edit: never mind -- it was simpler than what I originally posted. <!/--STR--> That's where your problem is. Replace it with the correct end tag: <!--/STR-->
  16. You associate the base/most expensive form. The feature is not intended to track all possible files, it's there for cost calculation.
  17. Searching the Store?

    No, there is not.
  18. Store is Broken

    Again - the store is working fine. Whoever created that item did not specify a shipping method that sends to your area.
  19. Megascale Stretching

    What Hyper-Man said. Use a custom Modifier.
  20. super small size

    You may want to actually read the thread that I linked in my initial response -- the first post has the exact command for you to run.
  21. super small size

    You would be launching it from the command line rather than double-clicking on the file. The file just showing "HD6" just means that your system is set to hide file extensions.
  22. super small size

  23. HD6 can't open it

    You've unpacked HD6.jar -- don't do that. HD6.jar is the executable. .jar files are java executables -- double-clicking it should launch HD. Since I'm assuming that double-clicking on the file launched your compression software (winzip, most likely, as it likes to take over any/all file associations that it can possibly handle), you're going to need to fix your system's configuration...particularly in regards to how it handles Java files. Google "jarfix" -- the first result will contain a small application for you to download and run which will correct the file associations on your system in regards to .jar files. After that, delete everything except for HD6.jar and then double-click on that file to launch HD.
  24. HD won't open character for 5e Heroic

    Looks like your system's having issues with allocating memory to Java. I've seen it a couple of times before...while not the perfect solution, increasing the memory that HD is allowed to use (slightly) should do the trick. You'll find the setting under the app preferences (File -> Preferences...). Increase it to 128MB and you should be good to go. You'll need to restart HD after changing that setting...
  25. HD won't open character for 5e Heroic

    No issues here - opens right up. Post the trace.log file (after the issue occurs) as well as a directory listing for the folder that you're running HD from (the one with the trace.log file).
