I have a special ability that exists for each class in the game system. It's only purpose is to display on the Special tab.

Is there some way to set its appearance on that tab as conditional? Right now, if you multi-class, it displays once for each class you take.

Wow, I can be stuck on the literal sometimes....

This is a class based ability, so I focused in on Classes. However, you can have as many classes as you have levels for but you only get one race. I have changed this to a racial special ability, which solved my issue.

I'd still like to know if making the display of Specials conditional is possible in HL. Just curious.

Your scripted conditional should delete the Helper.ShowSpec tag for the ability if its condition is not met.

Code:
if (<condition is not met>) then
  var result as number
  result = hero.child[<special ability>].delete[Helper.ShowSpec]
endif

Thanks. I haven't messed with showing Specials outside the built-in Editor functions. I appreciate the tip.

You can set the special's Uniqueness equal to "Unique" or "Add Once" that way no matter how many times it is bootstrapped it will only show once.

I didn't realize that was purpose for Uniqueness. I assumed it was only about the number of times something could be manually added to the character.

Thanks
