That depends on how its handled. I let others input data as long as everything has been tested rigorously and the editor has what it needs to support it. I did all the actual construction of components myself though. It was just easier on me that way. Sometimes I have to input data myself for the sake of ensuring everything needed in the editor is present first.

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.

Call of Cthulhu uses Chaosium's Basic system, and that system is available for purchase for Hero Lab. Once you purchase it, you can copy the system and adjust it as you like to make it more aligned to the generic system.

I'm sorry to say that the difference between the Call of Cthulhu system and the BRP is too large - that change cannot be handled purely in the editor, and to create the BRP in HL, you'd need to start from the Skeleton files like any other new game.

However they have provided us with a editor and an authoring kit, so get your players together as a team and go to it! Share it with others, look at the Pathfinder community files to see what can be achieved, truely great things.
FASA is releasing Earthdawn 4th Edition. The Players book is out currently, the DMG is next. Not a programer but would be nice to get community support.

Also while still in player test release, ICE is creating Rolemaster Unified. This would be another one I would love to see developed once it is released.

1st Edition could be done using OSRIC as the base, no need for WoTC licensing that way.

Alternity was released as a free product for Hero Lab as it is a "dead" system. AD&D 1e and 2e may have gotten a re-release of hardbacks but WotC isn't releasing any new content so it is possible they may also see those as "dead" systems. My 2e files are coming along nicely now. I believe they should be done soon.

Any updates on a AD&D 2E dataset?

The community and player base for the many rulesets based on pre-3rd edition D&D keeps growing and still no support for any of them?

I think Lone Wolf has its paws full and will for quite some time. What the Old School proponents need is a fan development community.

I was cursing your name the other day. I was rolling up a 2e character for the first time in I don't know how many years, and I had to do it by HAND with a PENCIL and a RULE BOOK.

Situations like that are TOTALLY UNACCEPTABLE! So get move on!

:-p
