Will do once I finish up. The coding on the base Soulknife abilities were almost nonfunctional in the ability to interact with them and the powers are unusable without full descriptions and augment text

Ok, I give up. Missing class abilities, mistaken class abilities, screwy coding, and the powers aren't given the functionality that spells are so there needs to be a version of each power for each class that uses it.

Without being able to get to the actual file, I can't fix the classes. Without a consolidated format like spells have, remaking all the powers for each class would take too long.

Sorry guys. I gave it a shot.

Sorry, man. I know Psionics needs a complete overhaul. Unfortunately, there's just no one doing anything for d20 core anymore it seems. Shadow was nice enough to give us a ton of updates to the system, but his time seems taken up with Pathfinder now. Perhaps I'll take a crack at it some time, but as you said it's a time sink and there are plenty of other things that need to be done as well.

Since it is part of core can't we complain and hopefully have them either give access to the actual file or get someone working on it?

Adding a permanent adjustment to Intelligence does weird things to skill point totals. Odd adjustments seem to reduce skill point totals

Ability score bonus for Animal Companion issue:

If you add a bonus, remove it, then select a new one the bonus turns into a penalty. Example: create 7th level Druid, add animal companion, increase ability score on Animal Companion (ie Strength). Delete ability score bonus and add a new one (ie Constitution). note that new chosen ability is reduced by one.

For now this can be fixed by going to "Develop->Trigger Full Evaluation Immediately". I know not perfect but its a working method until a full fix can happen.

Possible bug with the SpInfo tag: hard to explain, but it appears when a spell is tagged to another spell then subsequently tagged to an ability, the description of both spells will appear on the description. Example:

1) Spell Plague Carrier tags Contagion spell description.

2) Spell-like ability Contagion tags Contagion spell description

3) Spell-like ability Contagion description includes text from both Contagion and Plague Carrier.

I'm a bit surprised at this bug for such a mature product, but I don't understand why my total Encumbrance does not get updated when I use up ammunition such as Bolts or Arrows. That's kind of a basic function.

From what I'm seeing in the comments in these forums, this product seems to have been abandoned and all D20 and 3.5 support stopped many years ago. I wonder why the web site still advertises that Hero Lab includes this option when there doesn't appear to be much hope that anything related to 3.5 will be fixed or supported.

I can also see that there's been a lot of effort from the community to add supplemental support, and I wonder why the developers don't release the D20 core code as a gesture of good will to allow us to make Hero Lab usable for 3.5 games.

Marking them as used isn't removing them from your character. It might not be what you want but I can't see that as being a bug. If you want tracking like that, you CAN 'sell' each used arrow for 0 gold. This will update your encumbrance. Are you really so concerned about encumbrance you need to update it for ammunition in play? Don't you have you character go back and buy the same ammo all over again?

As for HLC... it still works, it does what I paid for it to do. While it isn't getting the support it used to, it hasn't been abandoned.
I feel that asking for access to the core files is ridiculous. You paid for a license to use the software, you didn't buy the actual program and files. Individual users with core file access are likely to screw those files up so that HL stops working for everyone! While some of the people of the forum are top-notch at HL coding, that's a pretty small percentage of the actual users.
