I tried doing that fix myself, and it must be more complicated than just renaming the thing. It didn't work for me. I'll wait for Erich's update. There's nothing stopping me from still selecting those edges, it just gives me a validation error.

Well, Arcane Backgrounds have several related items. So changing one thing can still have an effect on the others. Probably the best way would be to open the .user file in a text editor (or even better something like Notepad++ so you can tell it to present the lines as XML code for easier dealing with) and search for the edg89Weird text. You'd basically need to change it in all places where it appears to the new edg89Arc name you decided to use.

If you buy up an attribute with Super Attribute and then try to increase a skill related to that attribute, it doesn't seem to be accounting for the power.

Say, I have Agility d6, and buy it up to d10 with Super Attribute. If I have d6 Fighting and want to increase it, the skill point cost is still calculated as if my Ag were only d6.

I know it'll soon be a moot point once the SPC 2 files come out, but I'm trying to rebuild some characters using the current version, and it's skewing things a bit.

Thanks for the reply!

Yes, the Super Attribute checkbox in the In Play tab is checked. Having it checked or unchecked has no effect on the cost of skills linked to that attribute.

Are you referring to when the character is initially built, or are we talking about Advancements? For some reason, I was thinking Advancements.

If we're talking about Character Creation, that's how it's intended to work. Increasing an Attribute with the Super Attribute Power doesn't make increasing a Skill based on that Attribute cheaper when spending character build points.

Hmm... I'm not so sure it should be that way, Caped. Clint has said multiple times, though not specifically addressing this as far as I can see, that until "entire process is over, the character isn't finished and later steps can influence or alter earlier ones." The latest place he said that was in response to using things like Super Attribute as a way to get a pre-requisite for something else, but I think it also applies for making the cost of skills cheaper as well. The only time I think it wouldn't apply is if a power were limited to being Switchable since he's also stated in that case that the normal, not switched "on", version of the Attribute should be what applies for things like pre-requisites and such.

I'll ask that specific question in the Pinnacle forums, so we can be clear.

It does affect skill point costs.

Doesn't matter if it comes from Attribute points, Hindrance points, or super powers, the cost of the skills would be based off the final Attribute.

So yep, increases from powers affect skill cost.

Emails sent to support@wolflair.com are being returned, FYI.

I was creating a character for the High Space plug in for Savage Worlds; amphibious alien with "glanding". When I attempted to "borrow weird science" gadget to represent his water-filled space suit, HL crashed and closed.

If you need to know any other info about this, please let me know at aardvark892@hotmail.com

Thanks!
