  1. Right. The lower price is the reason I'm asking. Aside: it would be really helpful if the item descriptions in the store were more... descriptive. At least give me a page count, whether it's color or B&W, and the binding — that should be the basic info included.
  2. (That said, the 5e version was never a color hardcover. 😉)
  3. 6th Ed. My apologies for not being clear:
  4. I'd like to know if the $29.99 Star Hero Book + PDF deal current listed in the store is the original color hardcover or a softcover, B&W reprint. Would anyone be able to enlighten me? Any help is much appreciated.
  5. Ah, okay. Thanks for the answer! Let me put in a feature request for honoring the config.yml file in /resources so users don't have to mess with the .jar (or install the JDK).
  6. Aside: It doesn't matter what kind of edits I make — comments or editing parameters — the file still gets overwritten. The file appears to get left alone if it has not been edited, i.e., once it has been reset, I don't see HD touching it anymore.
  7. I edited the config.yml file in order to experiment with the fillin_font for the PDF Export feature. I notice that each time I launch HD6.jar, the file is overwritten and set back to the defaults. I've used both BBEdit and nano (command line) to make edits, and that doesn't seem to make any difference. Just figured I'd check. Is there any way to prevent this behavior? Build 20171016 macOS 10.12.6 Java 8 Update 151
  8. Sweet! This seems to have fixed the issue. Thank you so much!
  9. I've double-checked permissions and am not seeing any issues. I've run both builds from the same directory, and the previous build works, while the current build gives me the error.
  10. "Print to PDF..." in Current File uses its own template, no? The default 6e PDF one? This seems to be the line in the trace that's showing the error: /lib/sixthedition.rb:51:in `characteristic_block': private method `gsub' called for nil:NilClass (NoMethodError) That /lib/sixthedition.rb is in the JAR package, I assume? I've also run both build 20170927 and 20170504 from the same directory, and 20170504 does not give me the error.
  11. Sorry for the delayed response... I have some templates in my old v3 directory, but I'm not really sure if any were included by default. Now that I've looked at the docs, it seems like one is not included by default. Which seems weird, but I can work with it.
  12. FYI, I have tried fresh installs and trashing my appPrefs.xml file.
  13. I'm getting the attached error when trying to print to PDF with build 20170927 on macOS 10.12.6. I have Java 8 Update 144. I do not get this error with build 20170504. This error is triggered regardless of the character I am using — i.e. I can create a brand-new, unmodified character, of various templates, and this error will occur. I can still export characters, however.

  14. Anyone? Bueller?
  15. In my installation, it looks like there is no default combat record export template included with HD. Is that right? And, if so, it looks like Tasha's 6eCombat Record Sheet.hcr is the only 6e one available on the site. Is that right? I feel like there was one in previous versions (v3 was the last one I was using regularly), but I'm not sure.
