Hi,

When choosing the point buy system from Run and Gun, the limit is set to 800 for prime runners. How can I modify that to a number of my choosing, without just adding a minus x or plus x to the character creation karma in the permanent adjustments.

Thanks

If you don't want to use adjustments, you can use the editor's Creation Costs Mechanics tab (Tools grouping) to copy, change, and save a version of the Point Buy System entry with a different Character Creation Karma value.

I created a mix of buy to ten and high life rules: High life count to fifteen.
I started out with a copy of High life and changed All entries in Priorities allowed to 4 and Points to distribute among to 15. The search sequence is still 50 and all other setting are the same except for the name and unique id and the summary text.
I test the script and it says it can be used, but the script is not available in the Character>configure hero tab>Click to change Hero settings
How do I select this character creation cost mechanic?

I noticed that user content is grayed out in the selection screen Character>configure hero tab>Click to change Hero settings. it requires me to buy a datapackage, but I can't find which one I have all the SR5 packages.

As it says in the "Search Sequence", the lower search sequence number will be used, so don't leave it at 50 - change it to something lower if you want to overwrite an existing option.

If you haven't changed the source, then what you've done is to overwrite the High Life option (although if the search sequence hasn't changed, it will randomly pick between the new version and the old version, since they're both at the same sequence number).

Have you added any new sources as children of User Content? If it's still a header with no children, it will stay gray.

Thanks Mathias for your help, but I'm still struggling.
I tried what you said and now the option shows up under the menu Character>configure hero tab>Click to change Hero settings
in the user defined box but sadly it does not do anything.
I tried every available search sequence from 0-40 on 0 and 1 the program crashes and on 2 and higher nothing happens. It has me stumped.

I even tried replacing Sum to 10, but to no avail.
