Greetings Again, I have been busy with other projects. I still work on Combat manager, however Kyle and I differ on some methods and I have been working only on the version I use personally.

I left the data updates to Kyle but the code for the import is in the project, I believe it is a command line utility, I have never explored it as Kyle did the updates. I will put some time into figuring out the process and see what I can do. My development time is limited so do not expect real quick results.

I will try to post my progress here

i supplied the data to kyle

if you need updated files let me know

Just so you guys know I'm currently working on making something similar to Combat Manager. I'm trying to condense everything and do a few other things. Not even close to Beta testing, though, but I'm trying.

I'm making it in a website format though, rather than a program, through PHP, Javascript, Ajax and MySql but I don't know how stable I will be able to get it. I'm have yet to be able to use it as a PC in my home sessions and I don't have much spare time, but I'm trying to get it up.

I LOVE combat manager and am sad to see it die, I even use it as a PC because I like it so much.

I debated on posting this at all as I don't wanna give false hope.

All hope is false, until proven true. Thanks for letting us know. If you ever need beta testers, you know where to look. :)

I have rebuilt my development PC and have pulled the repository from Sourceforge but I am not seeing the last updates from Kyle. I am afraid he did not push his last fixes up to Sourceforge.

I have examined the details ripper and think that I will change the way the data was read from XML to .ods [this is how google docs saves, that I can easily parse] work is keeping me out of state right now so things are progressing slowly. Hopefully I will get more time in the next few weeks.


I wish I could set up files on my PC and save them to Dropbox and then access them on my Ipad via CombatManager

I'm wonderimg if anyone else is able to successfully use the "3d6" option for initiative with the most current Android 1.04 edition? Whenever I enable that option, Combat Manager crashes the moment I click the roll initiative button. I can manually roll 3d6 in the dice roller, just can't do the same for initiative. Otherwise, every other feature of the app works fine.

I'm using it for an RPG that uses 3d6 for initiative, so having that feature work will save me from doing a lot of single rolls in the dice roller.

I'm also somewhat curious about the status of the Android edition? I saw on the Google Play store, that the creator is working from scratch on a 2nd edition, but I'm wondering if some bugs might get fixed in the interim;I.e. is an Android 1.05 version a possibility?

Unless Kyle magically reappears, I do not think the information about working on a second edition is accurate. That may be what he put in a while ago, but it appears that Kyle has retired from working on this program. Thankfully Snapshot has taken up the mantle, but I believe Snapshot is working exclusively on the PC version. Please correct me if I'm wrong on that Snapshot.

Thanks for the reply - not the news I wanted to hear, but c'est la vie. Sounds like I'm out of luck on ever having the 3d6 Initiative work; too bad someone hadn't noticed that option not working on the Android version before Kyle retired. Regardless, I may still use CM by just using the manual dice roller for the 3d6 rolls. Since my son runs the PC version -all of which I paid $0 for- on his laptop for his Pathfinder campaign, I'm content to treat the roughly $5 I paid for the Android version as a donation to the cause. ;)

You are correct I have no android experience to build a version for android. I could probably find the bug but that will not help much.

Then there would be the problem of updating the Android marketplace as that would be under Kyle's control.

I am working on a data converter to read chopswil's data and create the files and database entries so anyone can update their Combat manager by downloading his files in .ods format.
I am working with what little free time I can get so bear with me.

Ummmm, I hope I speak for everybody when I say, THANKS! You are under zero obligation to do what you are doing now. Take your time. We're not going anywhere. :P


Pathfinder Adventure Path Subscriber

Absolutely!


Take your time! Looking forward to seeing what comes of your work.


Recently bought this for Android and I love it, but is there anyway to import custom data (specifically monsters) from the PC version?


I have found you can export an encounter and import it to the Android version. All custom monsters are there.

I have not found a way to import the database though. Only indirectly get the monsters through encounter import. I hope it works for your needs.


So is there an updated database somewhere or is that what people are still working on?


Kyle seems to have vanished, and Snapshot is working on something. See about posts above your last one.

I am working on it.

I have a converter reading the .ods file and creating a Dataset. Getting it into XML is proving to be more difficult than I expected.
I will get it hang in there


Again Snapshot, just want to say thank you for all your efforts. Take your time, we'll still be here patiently waiting.

I loaded the project in Visual Studio Community and got it reading from the csv file format at that url:
http://www.pathfindercommunity.net/home/databases

I used the CsvHelper project. Only problem I have is it has random crashes around 6000s for monster id. Wow, there's a lot of monsters! Guess my prep time is going way down if i can get most of the monsters loaded!

I don't use the db anymore nor the monster.xml files, just csv file from the site, http://www.pathfindercommunity.net/home/databases

I can't build an installer, so i can't really share what i have easily unless someone wants me to zip up my version and email it. i don't have the spells or items using the csv databases, yet.

I, for one, would certainly be interested. The reduction in prep time would be amazing!
