  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. 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
  5. 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.
  6. 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).
  7. 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.
  8. 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.
  9. 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 simi
  10. 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.
  11. 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 yo
  12. What is the full path to the directory that you unpacked the download?
  13. About as well as any other app that requires a full installation of Java....which is to say not at all.
  14. However much you want to put into it -- there's no one answer.
  15. You don't -- threads are archived after not having any activity for 1 year. If you want to re-start an archived thread, you'll need to create a new thread.
  16. I am not going to play the game of explaining decisions made within HD or the templates that it uses.
  17. Sorry, not campaign rules -- check your preferences.
  18. Check your campaign rules.
  19. REQUIRES and EXCLUDES are the attributes you’re looking for
  20. The source book selection was intentionally removed for 6E -- elements that Steve considers canon/part of the core rules are added in, others are up to the user and/or character packs to include as needed/desired. That was part of the increased focus on toolkitting for 6E.
  21. You're not going to get the behavior you're after without overriding/re-defining one of the optionally Adder-based Skills (Animal Handler, Survival, etc.) -- they require custom code in order to flip between being either a straight 3/2 Skill or being Adder-based. Without that, Adders will work as they should -- adding into the cost of the Skill. As for the lack of the Adders in the output of the Skill, you have SHOWALIAS set to No, so they're not displaying (by design).
  22. Apologies - was looking at the Template class/container. I believe that you're referring to the SHOWALIAS attribute within the ADDER container. It does pretty much what the name implies -- specifies whether or not the Adder's display (what the alias defaults to) should be shown.
