  1. Found it! A slight omission in the Rules Maven group (had file upload size set to 0). You should be good to go now.
  2. Hmm...I doubt it’s as simple as the space (though it’s a good thought). You’ve got an OLD account (no offense), so maybe something got horked in the site transfer that we didn’t see before (there were a LOT of issues with the downloads née free stuff section). I’ll do some digging and see what I can figure out. Ok if I use your account to check? (No password involved, just lets me see things through your account settings)
  3. Very odd....I'm not showing that at all (can get through to selecting files without issue and on multiple systems/browsers)...and that's early enough in the process that it's either something specific to your setup or something that everyone would be experiencing (and I don't think that the latter is the case). You've already tried from multiple systems, so cache isn't an issue...not entirely sure what else to look at (there's nothing in the logs about it). I'll do some more digging tomorrow...and if anyone else is seeing the same issue, please post in here about what you're seein
  4. Have you tried again? I'm not aware of any persistent issues with uploads to the server, but if it happens repeatedly I can certainly look into it. Also: what's the size of the file that's causing the error?
  5. Are we talking "Rockets from the sockets!" eye blasts?

    HD Update

    Primarily some rather esoteric changes/fixes surrounding fringe builds with Time Limit.
  7. There is nothing simple about Enhanced Senses -- they required a LOT of code in HD to work (above and beyond the template definitions).
  8. So many rules deviations/changes...and for an optional/GM permission only Skill that attempts to replicate a Power. 1. It's not part of the core HERO System rules and is not something that will be included in HD by default. 2. If you want to have HD implement the rules for purchasing it, you'd do that the way you always define rules in HD: a custom template. That said, it will be non-trivial even then as it does not mirror the purchase rules for any other Skill. Your best bet would be to have the player simply define the primary and two secondary methods when purchasin

    HD Update

    Nope -- that's been the case for a long time now (and is part of the RAW).
  10. Nothing inherent to HD, but depending on what scripting language(s) your export format supports, you can likely work something out that way. For example: <script> var str = <!--TEXT-->; document.write(str.substring(0,250)); </script>
  11. <!--ATTRIBUTE_VALUE-->getCharacteristicString<!--/ATTRIBUTE_VALUE-->
  12. Moving this to a discussion forum as it’s not really a rules question.
  13. I would recommend going to www.java.com and downloading the default JRE (Java Runtime Environment). It’s the large red button in the center of the main page. At present, that will give you Java 8, which is more than sufficient to run HD.
  14. Pawsplay will no longer be joining this conversation.
  15. That's not how Skill Levels work. If you want a permanent +X to a given Skill, you would buy up that Skill. Skill Levels are applied at game time and are separate from the Skill itself.
  16. Also, just to head off any other misunderstandings: the reason people with weakened immune systems should not be vaccinated is not because they'll catch COVID, or the flu, or whatever the vaccine is looking to prevent (again, that's physically impossible in modern-era vaccines). The vaccine is genetically modified to remove pathogenicity, but to still retain replication abilities -- that's what triggers the body's immune response and trains the immune system to recognize the virus (or bacteria) going forward. If you have a compromised immune system, your body may not be able to keep up with
  17. It’s important to understand what “attenuated “ means - it’s not a virus that is near death but otherwise normal. It’s a virus that has been genetically modified to replicate its form but to remove pathogenicity - you’re not going to get the flu from the flu vaccine, and you’re not going to get COVID from any of the COVID vaccines (none of which are that form). of the three that are currently approved in the US, two use mRNA (very new tech that teaches the body’s own cells to produce the markers that will create an immune response in the body) and J&J uses genetically modified
  18. Never any form of active virus...unless you go back to the early 1900s. Modern era vaccines have exactly zero active/actual virus/contagion
  19. Characteristic Maxima are defined under Campaign Rules.
  20. Um...that's not how vaccines work. At all. They are not live versions of the virus. They are not "near dead" versions of the virus. They are utterly benign replicas that teach the immune system. You can have a massive overdose of a vaccine and not contract the virus.
  21. Side effects are based on the body's immune response to the vaccine, so they're not going to necessarily track with physical fitness or age (though the latter may factor in). If someone has had the virus previously or simply has a strong immune response in general, they're going to experience more/stronger side effects. It's why the second shot of the 2 dose vaccines give stronger side effects.
  22. I'm not really sure what you're asking/looking to do....prefabs are just pre-constructed Powers. If you want to present options for the user of the prefab, you simply build the Power multiple times (each way you'd like it to be presented).
  23. "My body is a temple: ancient, crumbling, probably cursed."
  24. Slight change in plans - originally was scheduled in a location about 2 hours from me, but got a call from our local hospital saying that they can get me in on Friday...for the J&J vaccine. That'll get me fully vaccinated about a week ahead of my wife, so I've got that going for me...which is nice.
