So before anyone asks. Sure we will possibly look at adding the new Eberon stuff. But if you want it quickly or as a priority then we need more volunteers. I persoanlly play in the Forgotten Realms so I have no need for this which means it will go to the bottom of my priority list.

They just released the teaser / beta on DMsGuild.com.

The official page for a new book also went up last night.

What, if anything, can the technically illiterate such as myself do for MToF or WGtE?

Have a read of this. I've tried to make it as simple to follow as possible. There is a lot of text but it steps you through the whole process of assisting not just how to do the changes in Hero Lab.

Any update on when we'll see a new release for this? Currently, I've been syncing the github repo on a regular basis to my PC, but recently got an iPad and getting the github content to the ipad is, to say the least, inconvenient..

and by inconvenient, I mean that I haven't figured out how to even do it yet.. doing an export/import through itunes duplicates the Community Pack files completely instead of over-writing the updated ones and I would rather not replace the Community Pack completely..

It pretty much the same as setting up the community pack on a pc.

Adding the update link to HL for iPad updates, give you the 5E Community Pack.

We are working on Mordenkainen's Tome of Foes currently. When its done, and we get most of the bugs out <grin> we'll have a new release.

It will be released once MTOF is complete. Anyone who wants it sooner rather than later should help us complete it.

Thanks for the update (and @daplunk too)

Here's what I did for now:
1) on the iPad:
a) removed the Community Pack from my sources
2) on my PC:
a) did a git sync to get the latest from master (as my current character is using a MToF druid circle)
b) used HLExport to export all Comm_5ePack files
c) used iTunes File Sync and dragged the resulting .hl file into it's updates

3) back on the iPad:
a) launched Hero Lab and checked for updates - there's a big button saying there's a local file update now
b) imported my .por file from DropBox (this is also a bit kludgy as I'll have to export it back to DropBox after every game session and then re-import it before each session - but that's not germane to this conversation )

Ah, I see what you mean. You want to install the version you download from the GIT site on your iPad.

1) To do this you need to go to the tools tab and click on Launch HLExport.

2) When its open, click on the Game Folder Select Files button. Then click on the Select None button on the left.

3)Scroll down to where the COM_ files are and check off all of those ONLY.; then click OK.

4)You'll now be able to edit the Third-Party ID, Name, and Version data. I recommend using COM for the ID, the current Community Pack version (2.2 I believe). and using the following format for the name:
- 5E_ipad_v2.2beta_a
-Change the final letter ('a' in this case whenever you update to a newer version of the GIT site files. Update the 2.2 whenthe Community Pack puts out a new Release.
- In the Comments box, put whatever you want concerning the reasons for this update.

5) Once you have all this, browse to where you want to save the file. The file name should be COM_5E_ipad_v2.2beta_a in the case of my example.

6) Click on Generate to create the file.

Now you need to import the new file on to your iPad.
- To do this open up iTunes on the computer where the file is located.
- Connect the iPad to the computer as normal.
- Open up your iPad in iTunes (The Icon normally just below the word Account at the top of iTunes.
- Go to File Sharing which should now be on the Left.
- Find and click on Hero Lab in the reveal list of Apps.
- Under your List of Hero Lab documents, at the bottom of the list, you'll find a Add Files button. Click on it and browse to the file you created with HLExport.
- Once selected, click on Sync.
- When the Sync is complete, go to HeroLab on your iPad.
- Go to Updates under the list of your characters. You should now see that you have a new update. If its not listed, try clicking on Check for Updates Now.
- Install the new Update allowing it to overwrite existing files.
- You update should now appear in the list below.

I think I covered everything. If you have any further questions let me know.

By the way, you can use the same instructions to add any homebrew content you have created in the Editor to your iPad. Just use a different ID, Name, and Version along with a corresponding file name when creating the new Export using HLExport.

Watch your back, Conserve your ammo,
and NEVER cut a deal with a dragon!
