    Hello. I think I spotted an issue.

    If a PC has a negative damage modifier, then for missile weapons where it is supposed to use the full negative modifier, it uses TWICE the full negative modifier.

    For example, normally, missile weapons with a damage modifier applicable use 1/2 of the dm. So, a +1D4 dm becomes a +1D2. And that works fine for positive dms.

    When such a weapon is used by someone with a negative dm, it is supposed to apply the full negative dm, so a -1D4 dm stays a -1D4 dm.

    The rules text:

    "Missile weapons don’t allow a character to use their full damage modifier. If your character’s damage modifier is positive, divide the results in half (round up) when using a thrown weapon or a bow. If the damage modifier is negative, keep the modifier as is."

    But, if I put in a PC with a negative dm, such as a STR of 8 and SIZ of 6, the dm shows as 1m4 (which I assume means -1D4) however, when I double click on a missile weapon's damage, it rolls -2D4.

    I imagine the code is trying to double the normally halved dm but somewhere else it has already done that, so it is now doing it twice...just a guess on my part.

    Now, there is a workaround...just unclick the db bubble for that weapon on the Main Page and manually type the -1D4 into the damage line. But would be nice if this could be easily fixed.

    Regards,

    Devin

    I haven't noticed this. The code explicitly states that the damage should be -2d4. See campaign/record_char_main.xml, getWeaponDamageRollStructures(nodeWeapon).

    Code:
    ...
    if sDamageDice ~= "" then
         sDBDice = DiceManager.convertDiceToString(sDamageDice);
    
            if sDBDice:match("d6") then
              sDBDice = "d3";
           elseif sDBDice:match("d4") then
              sDBDice = "d2";
           elseif sDBDice:match("m4") then
             sDBDice = "2m4";
           elseif sDBDice:match("m6") then
             sDBDice = "2m6";
    end
    ...
    The code in campaign/record_npc.xml, getWeaponDamageRollStructures(nodeWeapon) also needs to be edited.
