  1. A Neophyte Tackles the FG Extension - Change Effect Visibility with One Line (Part 1)

    Due to posting limits, I have had to split this session into three posts.
    This is part 1 of 3.


    It takes only a single line of code to change an effectís default visibility behavior in the Combat Tracker. To discover and implement it requires a little work as outlined below.

    Using Notepad++ I searched for the string displayed on the effect visibility button, VSBL, in the 5E ruleset subfolder, of the Fantasy Grounds data folder. No luck, the search failed to ...
  2. A Neophyte Tackles the FG Extension - Effect Visibility (Revisited, Part 1)

    This time Iíll jump right in, create an extension, then slowly add more and more functionality to it. Iíll explain, as I go along, what I am doing, and why. Plus Iíll explore solutions to problems as they arise. It is quite a bit to bite off so this will assuredly require multiple blog posts.

    First, to clean things up: in previous blogs I edited some of the ruleset files. I was exploring what the consequences were when certain changes are made to the ruleset files. I want to ...

  3. A Neophyte Tackles the FG Extension - Dumping DB's Field Names (2 of 2)

    This session I will implement some Lua script to dump database field names to the console.

    (1) This blog is very long. I was required to divide it into two parts. This is part 2 of 2.
    (2) You should consider making your browser full-screen so that the code displays correctly.

    After saving the file, reloading the ruleset, and bringing up the character, my console information is as expected. Next step - implementing a terminating ...

    I shall try to describe my tactics in solving a problem but not each and every step of their implementation. In a previous post I looked at the <inventorylist> ...

  5. A Neophyte Tackles the FG Extension - XML and Lua, Why?

    Most, if not all programs, when stripped down to their very essence do one thing, manipulate data. Thatís all Fantasy Grounds does: whether you are constructing a character sheet or rolling a d20 to determine surprise, FG is using your input, the data you supplied, in some predetermined process. FG uses two ďlanguagesĒ to provide extensibility. What do the two languages, XML and Lua bring to this table? XML is a standardized methodology of providing easy access to data. Lua is a methodology ...
