* * * At this point in time, this is quite usable for creating a C&C character * * *
Definitely out of Alpha, and I would think late beta.
(As of August 24th, 2016) Version 1.0

Link (for HL source input):
http://www.ai6k.com/herolab/candc/candcupdates.xml

Converter (Java - Convert Custom HL output for Fantasy Grounds import)
http://www.ai6k.com/herolab/candc/Ca...er-convert.jar

Steps:
1. Start Hero Lab
2. Click 'Find Updates'
3. Click 'Add Source'
4. Click 'New Source'
5. Copy/Paste link
6. Click 'OK'
7. Click 'OK'
8. Click 'Finished'
9. Exit completely out of Hero Lab
10. Start Hero Lab
11. Click 'Find Updates'
12. Select Castles & Crusades from the list
13. Click 'Download'

If you need help from here, I'll continue these steps further along in the development cycle.

Finally, a converter for the latest C&C Hero Lab plug-in.

Inside HeroLab, File-> Save Custom Output (Current Hero Only)

Code is Ruby, go figure, it's my go-to language.

See link in first post for Converter.

New version 0.34 is out.

Java converter for Fantasy Grounds is out. Ruby version to be phased out (ie. removed)

I'm going to take a look to see if somehow a converter can be written to use the XML to create Roll20 character sheets (Roll20 character sheets update is part of R20 Deep Delve for May 2014)

Can you help me out with something? if you view my thread called Crest of Ruin and get my file from there and view it; can you help me create tabs for using magic based on my system? i don't know how to create magic tabs and it would help my game so very much. And i will be ever grateful to you for your assistance and helping me understand the system better.

TaylorBland,

I'll gladly help you. Give me a day or so to take a look at your work and give you a gentle nudge on how to accomplish new tabs.

I noticed that Strength bonuses don't get added to the weapon stats on the record sheet. It would also be great if the race/class abilities were also printed.

Mark,

I stopped playing C&C, so unfortunately I've moved onto other things.

All the code is there in the plugin for anyone that's willing to take over/update.
