Hello peeps

My GM just told us that he homebrews us having 8 skill points per power point instead of the usual 4 and wondering how to best go about that in hero lab. I know there is a way to do it since I see the option of changing the skills per point in the options between 2 and 5 but I don't see a way to do that in the editor.
I have not touched the editor in forever so I did tried to poking my head around on tutorials for the editor but most of it seems to be how to add a new power.

So to be clear, my question is, how do I get 8 skill points per power point spent?

Any help will be appreciated.

Hmm... the best I've been able to manage, looking through the code, is that the 3 and 5 options have tags of Source.HRSkill3 and Source.HRSkill5 respectively on the hero. Fortunately, the way tags are processed, there's a decent change they're just reading the value at the end, so if you have a way to add a Source.HRSkill8 tag to the player, it will probably work. I don't know if I'll have an opportunity to check how that is done any time soon, unfortunately. And it's been a while since I mucked around with the system at that level.
