Speaking of the Paladins Smite Evil, its seems that the current release doesn't account for the paladins charisma modifier on the "to Hit", the damage is still working as before (+1per LVL).
Looking under the Paladin.dat file the eval script accounts for the damage, but don't see the charisma mod.

I have added the Church Inquisitor prestige class to the my Complete Divine usr file, not perfect but functional. The problem I am having is that I do not know how to merge the files so when a new set is released I have to reinput the class. Does anyone know how to merge files or is there someone I can send my file to?

Thank You

Just tested this in a clean install of the d20 v5.7 and it works fine. I set a level 1 paladin with a 18 Cha and when I activate the ability I get +4H +1D. Seems right to me.

The .dat files for d20 are locked and can not be seen by outside users. So I am not sure what file you are looking at. If you have a custom version that is overriding the core d20 Paladin that could be why you see something different.

There is a source directory in the d20 data folder that has a collection of .dat files. These files were old and obsolete when I started coding several years ago. They should be ignored.

Incidentally, I am able to reproduce this issue, but I'm not yet clear on why. I have two game system folders that are (in theory) identical, and both have the community set. I can reproduce it in one system, but not the other. I'll play around with it some more and see if I can figure out what's going on.

Update: Nevermind. I have found the source of the problem in the community set. It will be resolved for the next release.

Random entries seem to be missing.

Includes Dragon Compendium but Tibbit (A race option) is missing. Other Dragon Compendium things are showing up.

Includes Savage Species but I can't find any entries on any of the in system lists. (As in, I loaded up the Module and tried to find Savage Species Entries and can't find any at all.) I was looking for Surrogate Spellcaster, but it's not in there.

Humm that's is puzzling, setting up a generic POR, the attributes defined "should" give a +4/+3

But the "Special Tab" displays only the damage portion.

Disagree, and I think Sendric is on the same path as what I have found (see Below) Within my Set, there indeed are the *.dat files referenced, it is there I was referencing this code... The code "seems" to account for the damage but not the "to hit"

It does warn the end user this is a read only file before the display.

Probably what I am seeing.... should these files be removed?

Totally forgot about that old folder. It has a "few" of the original .dat classes I think. I will need to ask Colen about them and what should be done with them.

Well...yes, that is true. Not every file that is included in the community set includes all data from the source the file is for. In fact, I would venture to guess that almost none of them do, with one or maybe two exceptions.

The Savage Species file really just has the Pixie race and a couple other odd bits. I don't remember who even entered it, but it was a project that got abandoned pretty quickly. It may be something I look at in the future, but to be honest there's so much missing content it's hard to make this even a low priority at this point.

If there is something specific you are looking for, please feel free to make a request. I'm always happy to take a look at specific requests.

Well, everything else I can work around, but having the Tibbit Race in there would be great, if you guys have time/energy/will for it.

Race found Here

It's part of Dragon Compendium Volume 1
