  1. That looks like a similar issue to what hit the News page yesterday....and is not what I'm showing currently. Try clearing your cache/refreshing the page.
  2. They are Naked Advantages and displayed/written up as such, though the Resilient Body is done in a confusing manner. A +1/2 Naked Advantage (Resistant, in this case) applied to a max of 50 points (say, 25PD/25ED) costs 25 points. A +1/4 Naked Advantage (Hardened, in this case) applied to a max of 75 points (say, 25PD/25ED with +1/2 Resistant applied to them) costs 19 points. This differs from what is shown by 1 point - likely a rounding error or typo on the part of the writer for that particular example. I would argue that the second writeup (Resilient Body) is done incorrectly as it should be applied to the base ability (25PD/25ED) and not the Advantaged ability (25PD/25ED with Resistant). If you purchase both Hardened and Resistant as the same Naked Advantage on 25PD/25ED, the cost will work out to 37 points, which is the 25 points for Resistant and 12 points for Hardened applied to up to 25PD/25ED. Edit: the other costs for Hardened as a Naked Advantage work out to exactly what is shown if applied to the Advantaged cost of PD/ED with Resistant...but Naked Advantages are applied to the Base Cost of the ability, so I would recommend ignoring the costs listed with Resilient Body and either purchase as a single Naked Advantage or purchase as Hardened applied to the Base Cost (non-Advantaged) of the relevant levels of PD/ED.
  3. Something horked in the recent update. I think I've got it sorted now.
  4. Huh. Could have sworn I had put the updated docs into that update. Ah well -- they'll be in the next one.
  5. In the current update, bundled into the zip file download.
  6. Well, for one, you’ll want to go through the current (updated) documentation. Print to PDF functionality was removed a few months back due to required third party libraries that were incompatible with current Java versions. you’ll want to use the standard export process with the character sheet format of your choice.
  7. Looking at their post count that should do it...had thought it was higher (searches are limited to 400 results)
  8. A carry over from Dark Champions.
  9. You're going to be limited to what you get through the "See my activity" functionality on your profile page.
  10. It looks like it'll be present on posts that exceed a certain number of pages over a period of time -- a way to keep track of potentially useful/popular/interesting posts that may otherwise get lost. Edit: I've changed it so that it should show under the first post in a thread rather than as a sidebar.
  11. Yeah...black text on white background....it’s unheard of. Blinding. Unusable. Realizing that histrionics won’t help your cause yet?
  12. In a word: yes. In more words: think of it as being in someone else's house. If you want to raise issue with their choice in wallpaper or change in paint color, you likely want to be at least somewhat circumspect in that. Histrionics do not benefit anyone.
  13. Wait...you're paying for access to the site that I admin for free? Really? How dare I update the site, including modifications to the default theme. Why...it's downright dastardly. Likely intended just to piss you off.
  14. Ah....histrionics. OH GOD....MY EYES! The goggles -- they do nothing! The background went from slightly grayed white to white. Why...it's like nothing I've ever seen before! No other place on the internet would EVER do this kind of thing. Well...except for Facebook, Twitter, Reddit.... Stop griping.
  15. Yes, but generally you really don't need to unless you're getting an active (popup) warning about low memory....in which case there are typically other issues that should be resolved before increasing the memory.
  16. My oral hygiene has gone to a whole new level during this - only took hot-boxing myself in my mask a couple of times to hammer that lesson home
  17. What did I JUST say?!? A warning has been issued - further posts like this (from anyone) will result in moderation or banning from the forums entirely.
  18. Since I've been a bit lax of late, I'm going to post this publicly rather than quietly issuing a warning: this post is not acceptable in this thread (which makes it unacceptable on the forums in general).
  19. beside the point. Easy to “hack” a single vote...and pointless. When you start talking about a scale needed to actually make a difference you look to concentration points- too much noise to do individual on a large scale.
  20. Best way to think of that is the scale needed to have any impact. is it possible (easy, even) to get at an individual ballot without detection? Yes. Full stop. but that’s like saying that you can get full access to one user’s Facebook account - doesn’t really get you anything. is it possible to get at ballots on a scale that would impact a regional election (without being detected)? Probably not. Vastly easier to focus on concentration points like polling locations.
  21. Getting a little ahead here while we wait for a response, but if you’re getting the splash screen when you double click on HD6.jar and it’s freezing up (not getting into the main app after a few seconds) while running from your Documents folder, the main thing that I can see is the ampersand in your directory name. It shouldn’t be an issue, but it’s possible that it’s causing problems when Java interacts with the native file system. If all of the above assumptions are true (and there’s a lot of them), try renaming the directory to something simple — just HD6 or HeroDesigner or something similar without special characters.
  22. If they are getting the files out (i.e. able to double-click on HD6.jar), then the warning they're showing can be disregarded. If they're not getting the files out (the error is halting the operation), then they're _really_ in the wrong thread.
  23. OK...first off, let's stick with the Documents directory for the time being. Dropbox shouldn't be an issue, but let's work with one variable at a time. I was assuming given the thread you posted in that you're getting the splash screen when you double click on HD6.jar (indicating the HD is loading)...and that it's getting stuck right around the "Loading Plugins..." point. If that is the case, do you show a file "trace.log" in the directory that you're running from after the problem occurs? If so, please post the contents of that file in a follow-up. If you are _not_ getting the splash screen then you're not having the same issue noted in this thread and I'll need more details. What is happening when you double-click HD6.jar (details needed)? What happens if you open a command prompt, cd to the directory that you unpacked HD into, and enter the following: java -jar HD6.jar Post the output of that command in a follow-up.
  24. What is the full path to the directory that you unpacked the download?
