First of all thanks for the fantastic work with this community pack. Unfortunately I seem to be having some issues with choosing my background. I downloaded and installed according to your PDF instructions in the 1st post. However, no matter what character race/class combo I make, I still only have the option to choose Acolyte in the background section.

To make sure it loaded go to "Tools->Manage Third Party Updates". If installed and you restarted you most likely didn't turn on the new Source Options.

Open HL 5e game up and on the "Configure Your Hero" window make sure that you have checked marked "5e Players Handbook".

The bigger issue is unless you based your authoring kit logic off of Pathfinder all the base components are going to be different. Tags, fields, everything will be different. Trying to convert from your game system to 5e would be most likely more work than starting from scratch.

Even in systems like Pathfinder that came from d20 you can't just move a d20 .user file to Pathfinder or a Pathfinder to d20.

So comes down to how close is your game system to Pathfinder?
As the pathfinder dataset does not include
Full datfiles I went with Authoring kit
Instead, I wanted full control of what I can
Do wirh the code (and for some features
as the charsheet I needed that).

Well, assuming the Thule people do not
Object to full text at least there you could
Profit all else I fear the implementation will
Be often very different.

Best regards,
Steffen

The first post HERE in this thread has a PDF with a detailed install guide. Did you do all those steps? Do you see the pack installed when you go to "Tools->Manage Third Party Updates"?
Yes I did - added the new update source :


Restarted but I don't see any 5e community options :

Update: I updated the document to cover Pathfinder, d20 and 5e now. Including giving all three URL's in the pdf. Sorry about that...
Not sure why you are apologizing for my mistake in not reading properly. Perhaps you have some Canadian blood in you.

Correct me if I am wrong, but isn't D&D 5e Community Pack (v1.2) what you are looking for???

Because the document that use to be pointed to referenced only Pathfinder and a Pathfinder update URL. I have sense changed it to reference d20, Pathfinder, and 5e now.

I was sorry that the document was "out" of date and causing some confusion...

Hey be happy you got me on a nice day. Most days I am ready to tear someone's head off!
