    Greetings,

    Sorry if this isn't the correct location to place this however the link in your signature doens't work to report a bug.

    I found a bug which effects all the barding items from the Players Handbook, and a fix actually.

    Steps to reproduce:
    Add any barding item to a characters inventory on the inventory tab then click items icon on inventory tab to view the item. The following exception will occur:

    {code}
    'Ruleset Error: windowcontrol: Database type mismatch for control (ac) in windowclass (item_main)'
    {code}

    I looked at the Players_Handbook.mod>client.xml file and some lua code to see why FG thought there was a data mismatch and analyzed the items in comparison to others, long story short your node for ac type cannot be string

    So the following lines of xml in the client.xml file have to be changed as follows:
    {code}
    |-----------|FROM--------------------------|TO------------------------------|
    |LINE 2013|<ac type="string">+5</ac>|<ac type="number">5</ac>|
    |LINE 2027|<ac type="string">+8</ac>|<ac type="number">8</ac>|
    |LINE 2041|<ac type="string">+3</ac>|<ac type="number">3</ac>|
    |LINE 2055|<ac type="string">+1</ac>|<ac type="number">1</ac>|
    |LINE 2069|<ac type="string">+3</ac>|<ac type="number">3</ac>|

    After making making these changes recreating the mod file and unloading and reloading the Player's Handbook fixed the issue. Though I had to delete the previously added items and re add them. If I understand the wiki correctly this is because the system created/loaded the entry into the campaigns folder to track the players items. Lastly I did a search to see if this was an issue with any other items in the Players_handbook.mod and these appear to be the only effected items.

    Anyway I just happen to notice this due to creating a test fighter and was curious as to why this happened so I did a mini deep dive. Hope this helps.

    You probably know this already but The Shades of Mist module needs an overhaul. I don't know if I'll ever get around to running a C&C campaign but I went ahead and bought the bundle bc it scratches a lot of the OSR itches I have... SoM is in so rough a shape (no organizing document and I found at least one missing table but now I can't even relocate it) I'd recommend it got pulled out of the bundle until it gets cleaned up. It would probably be easier if I had a copy of the original module but I don't.

    I believe that TLG has someone tapped on the shoulder to work on bringing this module into a 2020 FG standard.

    The link goes to a blank page with the message "Environment not found".
