It's a bit sad that this is still, as best I can tell, the latest documentation. But indeed, thank you. I just happened on this topic. Now, I just need to find a way to make it readily readable on the Kindle...

Calibre can convert PDFs to other formats including some of the Kindle formats (not sure if it can convert to the newer ones without a plugin) but PDFs don't always convert very cleanly, particularly images.

{nods} I suspect I'll have better luck taking the extracted HTML and building my own book to import.

There is an Unofficial Hero Lab Authoring Kit PDF that you can download to learn how to use.

Noctifer is the one who linked the PDF but the website domain is not active. I have the PDF with me.

Download at your pleasure.

The link provided will not download the file until I install Chrome extension(s) that I don't want.

Is there another less idiotic location that I can obtain the pdf?

edit: nm, I just managed to get the pdf by apparently clicking in a different order (I guess).

Now that they have finally repaired the HL import to Realm Works functionality I am here to see if this is still relevant. I remember trying to work with the Authoring kit and install a non standard system a while back but gave up on it because it was pretty complex. Someone told me it was painfully difficult for a programmer but next to impossible for someone who isn't a programmer.

I am not a programmer but I do have limited experience in javascript...lol

Has anyone ever figured out the authoring system well enough to add completely add a non supported system?

GM of HARP, Rolemaster, Spacemaster, Dreamchaser, Savage Worlds, and a myriad of other not so well known systems.
Software I use for gaming: Realm Works, Inspiration Pad Pro, Ebon, Aeon Timeline, Scrivener, Syrinscape, Hexagon, Fantasia Archive, OneNote, and a spreadsheet program.
Mapping programs: CC3+, MapForge, Worldographer, Xara Photo and Graphic Designer 10.
Programming experience: Java and Javascript (Maptools and PDF programming).

We have several mostly completed systems. I got far enough for my purposes for Planet Mercenary, although I haven't touched it in years.
