  1. Ditto -- but OTOH, as it contains his intellectual property, it might be more than a mere courtesy. Aye! Mainly just popping in to show I didn't utterly forget
  2. That's aggravating... when I read this I half considered just doing it in GIMP because at least that's one thing it can do right Thanks for whatever time you wind up putting into this.
  3. I've discovered PDFedit, but it can't edit the file If I don't delinearize, text isn't editable; if I do, PDFedit crashes. (Adobe gets none of my money, and besides that, I'd rather not know what they'd install on my machine to go with an Acrobat trial. Having Flash and Reader installed makes me feel like I have gaping holes in my person, enough as it is.) I may have more time than @dmjalund for this... does anyone know anything roughly as good at editing PDFs as Acrobat, but not made by Adobe?
  4. Just in case dmjalund wasn't completely put off and put out yet, right?
  5. Yuck, but understood. I actually hope we can go through the whole thing, and my first question is, does everyone think my "translation" of the original text, is correct? And secondly, @dmjalund, are you willing to do this in 2-3 phases anyway? As mentioned, I didn't want to go thru the whole document until I knew whether I was translating correctly.
  6. Scroll up to post #4 and 5 to see what I think. Post #1 has an image showing where on the page I'm talking about.
  7. Ah, I don't have a way to directly edit a PDF. I don't suppose the real original was an OpenOffice document?
  8. Ahaa, okay. I found one Narf the Mouse on these forums and wrote a PM asking for a look at this thread, in hopes it's the right person. I see Bill is Art Director so I'm guessing he and Steven were involved mainly for finishing/blessing.
  9. For that bit about Matching Complications I finally see what you were thinking -- the bit after the dash is the Campaign Limit for Matching Complications. What about perhaps: On the first paragraph in the second column of page 1, starting with "If you do not take Complications" through the end of that paragraph, replace: Some of your total Character Points - typically 20-30% - must be earned by taking Complications worth equal points. Without Matching Complications, you cannot spend that portion of your total Character Points.
  10. First, thank you very much for taking the time to give an example. After several more reads and your examples, I think some text changes would make things a ton clearer. Instead of "Effect rolls may be counted in two ways" perhaps "GMs will ask for Effect rolls in two different ways:" Instead of the existing paragraph about halving, perhaps: Halving: Sometimes die rolls involve a 1/2d6, half the result of a d6. For BODY, you still count dice, but subtract 1 for rolling 1-3, and add 1 for rolling 4-6. For Total rolls, simply halve (rounding up). I am still unclear abou
  11. Well'p aside from a note on the XLS CRS this'll be my first hello, and typical at that. I apologize but, hello, I have complaints. Because I've been moaning for years about the physical basic rulebook being unavailable for so long, a friend passed me "Hero2Page.pdf" recently. Now, I've read vols 1-2 and I feel I somewhat understand it all. This PDF, however, not so much. I'll have to take this in stages because it's a compound issue: the first thing that makes no sense to me, is the description of dice rolls. In the below image, lines struck in red are written in an alien language clos
  12. First, thanks for your pointing out the four wrong calculations. Secondly, to anyone using OpenOffice -- the changes I quoted above don't work as quoted, they generate an error code. I didn't try the versions with the sign function, but since it's the same ceiling format, I assume... anyway, I left those cells alone and saw no problems, albeit with only one use. Naturally, the math changes (which I didn't quote) worked fine. Lucky timing for me, to have come here for this just after you caught and flagged those mistakes! Thanks again.
