What <list> and <candidate> expressions did you put on each table?

Also, what component="" is set for those tables?

Candidate expressions control what you're allowed to select from, list expressions control what is shown in that table.

<candidate inheritlist="yes">

is common, so that you can automatically re-use your list expression for your candidate expression.

So, you need to write candidate and list expressions that will keep skills and psionics separate from each other.

Okay, that was it. I used <list> and <candidate> to show them properly.

Thanks!

Weird issue:

Code:
<list><![CDATA[component.WeapRange & component.Ammunition]]></list>
That code is accepted and compiles but does not show both. If I remove the second one, ranged weapons are properly shown in that pick list.

I have also tried it without the CDATA but that didn't work either.

Any thoughts?

Thanks!

Never mind. I found it. Have to use the '|' character instead of the '&'.

How do I access a linked item?

So, I have a skill defined with a link to attributes. Now I'm wanting to write in the portal the skill point total plus the attribute that the skill is linked to.

I have been looking for this but can't find it in the documentation.

Thanks!

Okay, a few questions.

The base cost for rank one in a speciality skill is X. The cost for next rank is base cost plus current rank. This means that to get X+1 rank costs base cost + X. I have been playing with the formulas but can't figure out how to do this. Any thoughts?

Are compound if statements, indeed any flow control statements, allowed? For example, can I say If <this> and <that> and <those> or <these> then . . . ? (Okay, that's extreme but I might need that many in a few conditions.)

Thanks!

Shadowrun uses the same method for some costs, so I had to figure out the formula. The total cost to get from 0 to rank X is:

(X^2 + X) / 2

Okay, I'm stumped.

I have read, re-read and played around with adding a custom menu choice on another item and I don't get how to do it. I know that to do this, I need to use the UserSelect item but I can't figure it out.

Here is my situation.

I have professions (which can be thought of as classes) on a hero. A few of the professions gets to pick from either a subset of the skills or abilities to gain a bonus. So, on my profession tab, I list the abilities of that profession and for some specific abilities, I want the user to be able to pick which skill gets a bonus from a specific subset of skills.

I try and add in the menu1 portal from the Specialized Edges example in the wiki (http://hlkitwiki.wolflair.com/index...._Edges_(Savage)) but no matter where I put it, I get an error. Right now, I'm just trying to get the menu to appear and then would refine what it displays for choices. However, it doesn't like any id I pick for it, saying that it's not unique, even if it's random and not used by anything else.

Further, I'm not sure if the menu1 portal definition goes on its own or in a template? I'm just not sure where to start on this one.

Unfortunately, this is just going to be part one on how to get this working for me, I think. As I said, I have read this section in the documentation several times and it's just not clicking how this works. I don't know why. I even tried to go to the Pathfinder system, add in a copy of the Scholar feat and look at its XML but that didn't help.

Any thoughts on how to make this work? What else can I list that would be helpful to you to help me?

Thanks!
