Re: Customizing Compendium

If this thread isn't deserving of an automatic sticky, I dunno what is. An amazing achievement, GreyOwl.

Do you mean the download isn't working, or that you can't open it after downloading? Both are working fine for me...
It downloads and opens fine. The font doesn't work though. What font did you use? Maybe I don't have it on my Mac.

Re: Customizing Compendium

The font is Helvetica Neue Pro, and it doesn't come default on the Mac or Windows. But the PDF file should have it embedded. Did you let it load the whole file after opening it? Sometimes the fonts look messed up for a few seconds until it finishes loading everything.

Ok. I did let it load. I scrolled through the entire thing and read all the example cards since thats all I could read. But all the text looks like this:

Re: Customizing Compendium

That's very strange. I don't have a Mac, so I'm not even sure how to troubleshoot that. Is anyone else having a similar problem?

Re: Customizing Compendium

Let me know where/who you suggest this to for front page action and I'll readily second it.

C3G can be played with official Heroscape, but it's not recommended.

Re: Customizing Compendium

I've only had a chance to skim through about half of it, and I am very impressed. Nice, nice work. There is a lot of goodness in there. One +rep isn't enough.

I did have a couple comments on my first impression of the part about special attacks. Especially as it relates to deciding when to make it a special attack. I think that special mention should be made of counterstrike type abilities and others that are bypassed by special attacks like tough. It may have been addressed and I didn't skim that far, but I think that is sometimes a consideration with deciding to make an attack a special or not. Also there the part about Double Attack, I think that the only case of Double Attack + a special attack is when the special attack allows additional attacks. Maybe indicate that a general guideline would be either Double Attack OR a special attack with additional attack(s). Then include the part about indicating clarifying language in cases where there might be Double Attack and a special.

Again, at first glance this is uberawesome.

I believe all of that is covered in there, but if after reading it you can't find it, please let me know.

When viewing with the Mac OS viewer Preview, it looks like what tcglkn shows above on my Mac. When viewed with Adobe Reader it looks fine.

This is a very nice piece of work GreyOwl! Kudos!
