Any word on when this will be available?

I'm having an odd technical issue, and it looks like it's time to submit it to the masses. Maybe ShadowChemosh can figure it out.

In a nutshell, I can't get the SoP options to appear. The files are all there, but they don't seem to be working.

I've tried manually adding the .hl file. I've tried adding the URL to the XML file via the Update page. I've checked my data folder, and I find all the required files. SoP shows up on the list of updates, just like it should. Everything looks like it should be working, but when I make a new character and go to the list of available options, I don't see anything by DDS.

Here are all the details for the relevant files, should you want to check against a working copy.

I've been trading e-mails with the developer for a while now, and he's hit a wall. He asked me to make sure I wasn't accidentally installing them into an alternate copy of the PF folder, but I only have the one.

Indeed, we've gone over all the basics that I can think of. It seems like everything is installed properly, but the Configure Hero screen isn't showing the SoP options. I can't shake the feeling that there's some simple and obvious problem that I'm missing here.

Come to think of it, what do you see if you go to Tools -> Manage Third-Party Updates?

Just going to ask a dumb question. The files you have listed above are located in your c:\programData\HeroLab\data\Pathfinder folder? Assuming windows.

Another way to look is to start HL and go to the Tools menu within Hero Lab and choosing Explore Folders->Program Data Folder. The files appear in the directory that opens?

In addition to other items, I see "Spheres Of Power 1.0 (V1.0, 15 files)".

No, they're not in that folder, they're in the Game System Data folder (C:\ProgramData\Hero Lab\data\pathfinder).

I've tried a couple other ways to get the data, including directly opening the .hl file (after downloading the updated version that turned up today), using the Import File option in the game-system-selection screen, re-downloading via the File Updates window, and using the Tools>View Game Updates option.

Each time, it acts like everything's okay, except that nothing actually changes.

Out of curiosity, I ran Tools>Diagnostics>Checksum Data Files. I trimmed out everything that wasn't relevant to SoP. Here's what's left:

Code:

The data files in use for this game system are listed below.

APG.pkg: 226703fe
UltMagic.pkg: f7c3768a

I'm tempted to completely uninstall HL and try it from a fresh installation. There are probably deprecated data files sitting around in there anyway.

TheIronGolem March 28th, 2016 08:11 PM

That might be a good idea. I'd also recommend making SoP the first non-LWD package you install. If it works, then try adding any others you have back, one at a time, and see if any of them appear to break SoP.

I'm testing converting a character over to Spheres. I'm making an Incanter with 17 INT, and at both levels 5 and 6. I have the same number of spell points 10@5, then 12@6) whether I have 2 unused boons or 3. If I'm understanding the book correctly, I should have one additional spell point at 5th level when I have 3 unused boons, and the same number of spell points at 6th level whether I have 2 boons or 3 unused.
