That's what I ended up doing. They are going to look into it.

At the moment, the majority of the work is done. I just have to work on a few Adjustments for items the Artificer can hand out, a few issues with the Alchemical Homunculus and Turret to tweak, then I want to post it to the GIT site.

By the way, could you please add a Source for Unearthed Arcana: Artificer (2019) please. And maybe 1 for the Wayfinder's Guide to Eberron?

I'm not touching github again, but I can explain how I would do it.

#1: UA - Artificer
There's already a UA-Artificer source, I would suggest going into the old artificer file and renaming the old artificer "Artificer (UA 2018)" and the new artificer "Artificer (UA 2019)" and just use the existing source. IMO the community should "hide" the old artificer and devalue it rather than continue to clutter up the UA article areas, and keep supporting it, but you do what you want.

#2: Wayfinder's and Ravnica
Make a copy of
COM_Source_110 - Storm Kings Thunder.1st
and rename it to
COM_Source_110 - Wayfarers.1st or COM_Source_110 - Ravnica.1st

Edit the file with notepad or your favorite text editor and replace the
<loadonce key="COM_Source_110 - Storm Kings Thunder.1st"/>
reference with one appropriate to your new file name.

Head down into the rest of the file and you'll see a parent and child source "Thing".

You'll want to change id, name and description on the parent to your new id and can leave the rest alone. I would suggest p5EWGE for Wayfarer's parent id. Do the same thing you did for the parent using p5EWGECP for the child id, but ON THE CHILD, YOU MUST CHANGE the parent= to the new ID for the parent.

For Ravnica, p5EGGR for the parent and p5EGGRCP for the child.

Push both the new .1st files to the repository and you're done.

The top of each of the forums lists a thread that contains Hero Lab General Support, along with the link to the bug reporting mechanism. The Developers like to have the bugs in the software reported there so they can have them all in one place to build their bug list from and check them off as they fix them.

As for the Artificer, the old one should be deprecated as the recently released version is an update to the 2018 release. Take the existing class, and update it to the text of the new version. It's not a separate class, its an updated version. Also bear in mind that WotC said more Artificer content is coming in UA, possibly next month, so this will need to be an ongoing update for content as they're likely giving a lot more content than previously released.


Please do not PM me to inquire about datafiles I coded "for personal use" such as Exalted, World of Darkness, AD&D, or Warhammer 40K Roleplaying. I appreciate your interest, but I do not own the Intellectual Property rights to these game systems. Nor do I have permission from any of the Publishers to distribute the data files. As such, I cannot distribute the work I have done with community on these files. They are "for personal use" only. Thank you.

I am far too busy these days to answer emails. If you message me here there is no guarantee I will get back to you at all.
