Well, it did work for a second, then it crashed and when i restarted it, it read the same error message again. how would one go about fixing this then?:confused::confused::confused:

jbearwillis November 12th, 2020 06:49 PM

Is there anyone that can help me fix this error... I didn't find an answer to the same question a few post above mine, Thanks for any help...

The data files could not be loaded due to the following errors:

Resource 'fntlarge' - Font 'CourierNew' is not available on all platforms and may not be used
One or more timing errors were identified. Please review the timing report and correct the errors. You can access the report under the 'Develop' menu or by clicking this link.

This probably isn't the best fix, but it worked for me. Go to Tools -> Explore Folders -> Game System Data Folder and edit styles.ui.aug with notepad, notepad++ or something other than a word processor. Search for fntlarge and change the face field to Arial.

jbearwillis November 13th, 2020 05:51 AM

Thank you Phril, much appreciated, that worked...

It's been close to a year since the last update. Will you be doing anything with the Klingon core book?

Okay, this is funky. I haven't been into Hero Lab in a while except to make sure I've downloaded bug fixes. Current version I'm using is 64-bit V8.9h #958. STA dataset is 1.9.

I needed to check on something regarding an existing character for a campaign that's been dormant for a while. So I fired up HL 64-bit, opened up the character's portfolio, and was greeted with this warning:

"Errors were encountered when loading the saved portfolio! If you notice incorrect behaviors in your portfolio, please report it to the data file authors (you can contact them from the help menu).

Portfolio created with different version of product. Compatibility is unknown but attempting load anyway.
Source portal ‘menutype’ has been orphaned for pick ‘typMain’
Pick ‘typMain’ has been orphaned due to missing source portal in batch ‘54’
One or more selections on ‘Andromeda Wolfe’ couldn’t be loaded. They may require content that isn’t available to this Hero Lab license, or user content that isn’t currently loaded.
‘Unarmed Strike’ is not available and can’t be loaded."

Now yes, it's been a while since I opened this character last, and HL has had several updates. I've seen similar messages before; this usually disappears when you save the portfolio and re-open it. That bit about "Unarmed Strike' not available has me a little leery, however.

So I hit OK on the warning so it loads the portfolio. Imagine my surprise when I click on the Basics tab and discover that my Human security chief is a starship now. I've attached a PNG of my Basics screen for your perusal.

I just tried opening the same portfolio in the 32-bit HL and get the same results, so something is clearly borked.

ETA 1: Tried it with a couple of different portfolios in both 32- and 64-bit versions, and the same errors occur.

ETA 2: Tried to build a new character, and things seem to be going okay, at least in 32-bit. Can save and reopen the portfolio without incident.

PGoodman13 March 13th, 2021 12:22 PM

Okay, don't really know why it's happening, but I have found a workaround for this. Assumes the character portfolio is unlocked; I haven't tested it on a locked portfolio as yet.

1. Load character.
2. OK through error.
3. Go to Character menu.
4. Choose Configure Hero.
5. "Select Char Type" should show as red. Click on the star.
6. Choose "Type: Character (Main)".
7. Click "Select".
8. Click OK.
9. Save portfolio.

Feature Request

Right now, you can use this to create Main Characters, Supporting Characters, and Starships. It would be handy if you could also use it to create Minor, Notable, and Major NPCs, which use different rules from Supporting Characters. This feature currently doesn't exist (or if it does, I can't seem to find it).

It would be handy if we could do all of these using the same tool.

I went in to make a character of my own for the first time in a while and discovered that 1.9 doesn't support Delta Quadrant either.

I did not realize I hadn't gotten this in there. Working on that now, and should have in the next week or so...

TCArknight March 29th, 2021 11:13 AM

Thank you so much for all your work....

PGoodman13 April 21st, 2021 05:13 PM

Finally letting me post!!

In an effort to have all the bugs in one place for easy reference, so that TCArknight doesn't have to look in several places for my prattling....

1. According to the core rulebook, page 248, the Miranda class was commissioned in 2274. According to the app (with dataset 1.10), it's commissioned in 2262. This gives it a refit that it's not entitled to.

2. It seems to calculate starship combat damage wrong. A scale 4 ship with Security 3 should have phaser damage of 7 and photon torpedo damage of 6; the ship I'm currently building is showing 8 and 7, respectively. (Later: Okay, so part of this is me misreading something; the ship in question has phaser banks, which increases the damage by one, so the 8 damage for phasers scans. Dunno why the photon torpedoes are showing as being 7 instead of 6, though.)

Thanks!

I'll check into these and see what can be done.

PGoodman13 April 25th, 2021 02:36 PM

An Intrepid class ship is showing up as Scale 0. All of its attacks are likewise showing as 0 [CD], to include photon torpedoes.

I haven't had a chance to dig through files, and honestly I don't know what I'd be looking for, but could the photon torpedoes be using Scale as a part of its calculation? Because that would lead to some of the numbers I'm seeing (though it wouldn't explain why this stock Intrepid with no mission profile as yet is showing 0 for its attacks, since they should at least be adding the Security stat).

TCArknight April 30th, 2021 01:59 PM

Ok, Intrepid and Miranda issues are fixed for next release.

Also, looks like Photon Torpedoes still were including the Scale in the Damage calculation when they shouldn't:

I just need to go through and make sure all Torps are set up correctly. :)

Anything else I missed?

PGoodman13 May 1st, 2021 06:57 AM

Not that I'm aware of, but I'm only now getting into ship construction within the app, if I'm honest.

I just tried loading v1.10 for the first time, but I get a host of errors:

All about non-existent components with various names: UserSelect, Custom, Tracker, CanAdvance, SpecialTab

Is a file missing which was supplied in an earlier version?

Very odd.... do you have advancement.core and components.core? I believe components.core would contain the ones you had listed...

Yes, those two files are missing.

TCArknight May 5th, 2021 05:15 PM

A new version should be showing as available. (@Farling - I double checked and this should have both the advancement.core and the components.core files. let me know if still not seeing them... )

Quote:

v1.11
Release: 05/05/2021
Fixed -
Intrepid starship: Scale of 4 is missing
Miranda starship: Year entered service should be 2274
Photon Torpedo damage too high

New -
Allow custom selection of additional weapons for Starships
Delta Quadrant Sourcebook
+ Starship Talent - Hot Rod, Voth High Resolution Sensors, Voth Cloaking Device
My next big thing is to check and see what differences between the Core STA and the Klingon Corebook. Any other suggestions for what you'd like to see are greatly appreciated. :)

Have fun with that....

PGoodman13 May 10th, 2021 06:33 PM

So far, not experiencing any problems with 1.11

PGoodman13 June 27th, 2021 03:07 PM

Do we have Klingon CRB yet?

Jay_NOLA July 24th, 2021 08:50 AM

1. ) The DS9_Player_Characters.stock , the TNG_Player_Characters.stock , & the TOS_Player_Characters.stock files are giving numerous errors when you open them.

2.) Can you add an Ushaan-tor to the Melee Weapons Equipment List. If a charter has the Ushaan Talent they get one to start with. The stats for the Ushaan-tor are in the Ushhaan Talent's description in the STA Core book.

PGoodman13 September 5th, 2021 12:50 PM

Using 1.11, Hero Lab 64-bit all nice and updated.

Building a Luna class starship. There's an error message saying "Ship Mission Pods: Resource Overspent." I have no idea at all how to clear this, since I never clicked on anything that said "Mission Pods" during the build.

Just recently picked this up, haven’t had a chance to dive into the differences… but will. :)

1) I’ll check this, I may need to update them for 1.11
2) Added for next release. :)

Seems I was adding a additional “Mission Pod” in another component. This is fixed for the next release. :)

As a couple of questions for the next release:
1) what portions of the Shackleton Expanse guide absolutely need to be included for HL? Working on the Races and gear at the moment. :)

2) what still needs to be improved further or is felt as missing?
