Is it possible to apply as many Classes.Fighter tags as a monster has HD? If so is it possible to do it with a feat?

Not a good idea. Adding extra Classes tags will confuse anything which wants to count the total class level.

The problem is I made a feat to give a monster the abilities of a fighter with the same number of HD, but I can't use the fighter requisite feats yet (pre levels / 4000):

perform hero.findchild[BaseRace].setfocus
doneif (state.isfocus = 0)

var racialHD as number
racialHD = focus.field[rHitDice].value

var classHD as number
classHD = minimum(20,racialHD)

foreach pick in hero from BaseClSpec where "SpecSource.cHelpFtr"

eachpick.field[xExtraLev].value += classHD

nexteach

foreach pick in hero where "SpecSource.cHelpFtr"

eachpick.field[cGiveSpec].value += 2
eachpick.field[cGiveSp2nd].value += 1

nexteach

Fighter feats use Classes.Fighter tags and another tag that is like FighterFeat or something. Ug I have been up all night cause of issues at work and I can't think. But its a different Tag that you apply that says you have equivalent levels to fighter but not actually have fighter levels.

Sigh Aaron can you help out? Never mind I found it its "FtCountAs.Fighter". This is the other tag that Fighter Feats count actually. This is similar I think you will find on the Magus that gets to count itself as fighter levels for purposes of meeting Feat Requirements. If not the new Warpriest out in a few days will have that built into the class.

Neither the Magus nor the Warpriest allows "Weapon Specialization". Adding FtCountAs.Fighter to the Tags does not allow a monster to take the feat. I come across the exact same problem with the druid (druid domains), but there adding the tag also doesn't work.

Thanks for your help so far.

I just tested, and the magus DOES properly work with Weapon Specialization. The prerequisite is granted by a 10th level Class Special called Fighter Training (cMagFtrTrn). Its eval script is shown below:

Code:
      ~ half our level
      field[abValue].value += round(field[xAllLev].value/2,0,-1)

      ~ If we're not shown, just get out now
      doneif (tagis[Helper.ShowSpec] = 0)

      ~ If we're disabled, do nothing
      doneif (tagis[Helper.SpcDisable] <> 0)

      ~ add that many fighter-counts-as tags to the hero
      var i as number
      for i = 1 to field[abValue].value
        perform hero.assign[FtCountAs.Fighter]
        next
As you can see, it adds the proper number of FtCountAs.Fighter tags to the hero. The Fighter combat feats check for this as so:

Code:
        validif (#featlevelcount[Fighter] >= 4)
I have to assume, based on it working, that the #featlevelcount[xxxx] macro checks the number of Classes.xxxx and FtCountAs.xxxx tags.

Therefore, adding the following to your above feat's code should work:
Code:
     var racialHD as number
     racialHD = focus.field[rHitDice].value
      var i as number
      for i = 1 to RacialHD
        perform hero.assign[FtCountAs.Fighter]
        next

Thank you very much Fuzzy. I tested with only 8 levels of magus.

That would have worked with a Kensei or Myrmidarch, as they gain Fighter Training at lvl 7, but the base Magus doesn't pick up that ability until 10th.

Works perfectly for a fighter. Now on to the druid!
