~ Since our Strength is higher than our dexterity and we passed, iterate through all weapons which are thrown, and subtract dexterity and add strength instead to our attack rolls.

foreach pick in hero where "wCategory.RangeThrow Missing stuff here"
each.field[wAttBonus].value = each.field[wAttBonus].value - dexterity + strength
to condense your code, may I suggest the following:

var bonus as number
bonus = maximum(hero.child[aDEX].field[aModBonus].value - hero.child[aSTR].field[aModBonus].value , 0)
doneif (bonus= 0)
foreach pick in hero where "wCategory.RangeThrow & !wCategory.Melee"
eachpick.field[wAttBonus].value += bonus
That way, taking the maximum of your difference and 0 means that if STR is greater than DEX, it will add +0 - and your if statement can be compressed into one line with doneif.

Your code was fine, except that you should be using eachpick. instead of each. within your foreach loop (the other will still work, but only because the program still supports legacy code).
