Buffing other characters (Psionic -> Not psionic)

Postby Zerocyber » Wed Jun 21, 2017 10:25 pm

Is there a way to do this? I can't seem to pull up the psionic powers in the temporary bonuses tab on the non-psionic character. I have the psionic sources loaded.

Hi,

Yes, temp bonuses are not usually part of the set up, but an added value feature later requested. (Most volunteers who code up books are just happy to get a working book out to the public, that the temp bonuses that are cool, are not part of the requirement for its inclusion. Temp Bonuses are low on the priority scheme as they tend to take a lot of time to code up properly.

Was there a particular power you wanted to enable? One of us volunteers can show you how to add a temp bonus for your own use in the mean time.

Cheers,

That would be great! I'm trying to use the program while playing live. In this case, Animal Affinity and Vigor were what I was thinking of.

I'm not sure PCGen tracks temporary hit points (for vigor).

Temp HP? Yes of course we can. BONUS:HP|CURRENTMAX|%CHOICE <> TEMPVALUE:xxx

Just a matter of coding it.

Cheers,

Could you tell me which file I need to mess with for the temp bonuses?

Depends on what item is the temp bonus - template, spells, abilities are the normal files.

Find the spell Bless or Prayer. There should be four distinct entries for those. The base spell, the short description, the long description, and the temp bonus version.

Cheers,
