I feel for you CapedCrusader as I've been dying for the SC 2 for Herolab and that won't be worked on until after the Sci-fi Companion. I wish I could help, I've played with hero lab and entered in data for my personal use but that's all I'm good for.

Hey, I might be a resource. While I've never used the Editor, how hard can it be?
(Yes, I'm joking on that front).

Seriously, if there's anything I can help with, just ask. I'm fluent in Hero Lab, having created quite a handy ruleset for Castles & Crusades.

I did have one question however, while working on the Nova Praxis, there's a skill that replaces 3 others. In the editor, I found where a skill I'm creating can replace a single other thing, but how would I replace 3?

Don't use the replaces function at all, actually. Instead go to the Preclude tab and preclude the things you don't want to appear and you're good to go. If you use the Replaces function it will replace all instances of that thing everywhere, even in the data files you might not be using at that moment. That is definitely one of those big "gotchas" that needs to somehow get pointed out in big bold letters someplace because I definitely made the same mistake when I started using the Editor and I know a lot of other people that have run into that as well.

*Raises hand*

Fortunately, I wasn't clear on how to use either Replace or Preclude (which I still think is harder when doing it for large numbers of things than it needs to be) so I didn't get very far.

I still use replaces for specific things. But I know why I want to do so. It is for when you really want to replace the original version for some reason. In some cases it was just so I could make something turn itself into a "no print" when its Improved version is also on the same character. But in most situations it is better to preclude the original and make a new one with a source on it.

If you ever do use a "replaces id", be sure to never, ever give it a source.

Evil wins because good rolls poorly .... or the players are not paying enough attention to the game.

This is a huge issue for me, and becomes bigger every day We're about to start a new supers game and want to use Hero Lab for everyone's PC's as well as the GM doing NPC's.

Supers 2nd Edition is in line behind the Sci-Fi Companion material (which is about half to 2/3 complete), so it'll be spring before it's available.

My group has essentially decided to run Necessary Evil as an SPC2 game, so I have a very rough, very preliminary, totally unofficial-and-so-terrible-that-nobody-would-want-it SPC2 source file. It requires the SPC add-on and will very likely be not even remotely as good or even compatible with the official SPC2 release Lone Wolf will do, but you can always PM me if you want to see if it will work for you guys in the short term.

Work on the Sci-Fi companion was announced a little less than a year ago (it will be a year in 19 days). Is there anything that any of us can do to help to get it moving forward? My own Hero Lab Fu has improved quite a bit this last year.
