I have a Dwarf character that has a weight problem; or more correctly an encumbrance issue. I bought the Pathfinders kit for him, went through added all the items in the packet for 0GP and then went to delete the original purchase, but I could not find it, it was gone. (Insert - Dramatic Music) The encumbrance for the character is wrong and I cannot find a way to correct it.

Any suggestions, short of deleting the character an starting all over?

Your question does not have enough details to even guess at a answer. What is your characters Str score? What weight does HL show? What weight do you expect to show?

Answer those questions and then attach your .por file to your post and someone should be able to give you some help.

The character strength is 12, and the program shows him carrying 148.64lbs of gear, weapons, and armor. But the amount in the gear "box" showing where it can be stowed does not equal this, even after I add armor and weapons. All equipment added together is 122.26lbs (incl gear,weapons and armor)

I would happily send a .por file, but I haven't figured out how to do that yet! LOL

HL tracks Coin weight unless you tell it not to. How much cash are you carrying? 26 lbs worth?

Yea that would be my question next. Usually most people see this as their skills are lower than its suppose to be.

Question #3 covers how to turn off encumbrance or just coin weight in options.

Also as a note. If you scroll down on the "post/reply" page you will see a button called "Manage Attachments". Pressing that opens a new window that lets you attach a .por file to your post.

Aaron, interesting idea but I already thought of that. No, unfortunately, that char does not have that much cash! LOL

I found the "Manage Attachments!" I was using "Quick Reply" which does not seem to offer the same range of options.

HL has 148.64

Did a tab by tab gear weight count, got this
Weapons 12
Armor 46
Nonmagic gear 78.5
Money 12.14

Total 148.64

Looks like things are being calculated correctly to me.

I have no coinage and I manually add up the total gear weight as 130.1 lbs in Hero labs. Hero labs then calculates the weight to be 147 lbs.

Could someone take a look and tell me if it's a bug or what my mistake is.

I also have no issues on gear weight with any of the other characters I created.

If you switch out your backpack for a masterwork backpack you can get rid of the over limit error.
