Got the output directory right now.

Imported the "detail" file over to the program I am using (Character viewer), but it still doesn't include the powers in detail.

What program are you using? I'll give it a try on my end.

"Character Viewer" from the Window's app store (Surface Tablet).

Checked the same character on 4eMetro. Same issue. Missing the details on several powers, including oddly enough Warlock's Curse.

I just created a Warlock with my CBLoaded Character Builder and ran it through the program.  It loaded fine in both Character Viewer and 4E Metro.  What Path did you put in the config file?

Also, how big is the combined.dnd4e file you're referencing?

47,805KB

Tested it again.

Character outputs the attacks with damage+stats, but no other text.

Here is the dropbox to the detail of the character I slapped together to test it.

Hmm, ok, that sounds like the right file. That's the one you're pointing to in app.cfg, right?

Just a few more questions:
1. Are you running the Add Detail program on the Surface, or on a different pc, but importing it on the Surface?
2. If not, which OS are you running it on?
3. How long does it take to run the file through? For me it takes about 32 sec from when I push Process to when the process time pops up in the status window.

It doesn't seem like it added any details at all.

I ran your detail file through my copy and it added everything.

What path did you put in the app.cfg?

Ahh, okay I did not think about waiting for it to process. I'm running the processing on Windows 7 and taking it over to Surface RT.

Mucked around with it some more. Whenever I run it, it immediately says "processing complete in 0:0"


Edit:

Never mind! I find the issue. I did something incredibly stupid. I had it directing towards combined.dnd40.part! Simple little error.

Woks perfectly now.

Only problem now is deciding if I like Character Viewer or 4eMetro more.

Ahh, yeah the .part file doesn't have all the info.

I'm glad we solved the issue, and glad it works.

I like using 4eMetro personally. Smile

What do you like about it specifically? I like Viewer just a touch more because it seems "cleaner" with its plain white background.

I think it's mostly the ability to have a journal. I like some free form fields to keep track of campaign notes, loot, gear I want, etc.

Hmm, didn't see those. That definitely makes Metro better though.
