Is there anyone still around that can help with this thread? First going to say that I am in no way, shape or form a programmer. The most programming experience I have is making a couple of simple macros for maptool. I followed this thread and was able to get Abeille and load up the beans and files onto Abeille. Picked did the whole renaming one of the .rpgame files to .zip and extracted it and checked out some of the files just to try to get myself familier with how Abeille worked. Zipped the folder again and tried to rename the file with a .rpgame at the end. Nothing happened except the name change, the type of file did not change. I was right-clicking the file and going to properties and changed the name that way. I tried doing this on the desktop and in the original folder the .rpgame file came from. Is there some special way to change the type of file from .zip to .rpgame? Been fiddling around with this for hours and getting a bit frustrated. I am trying to make a character sheet and framework that is not a d20 system. Unless there is some easier way to be able to get a character sheet and playing enviornment in maptool that is not d20 I am all ears. The framework I am trying to make is for the Unisystem, more specifically Army of Darkness. I appreciate any and all help.
I don't know a lot about CT and making new forms and such, but assuming you are using windows, it really does not matter. If Windows shows it as being type "zip" (in the Type" column in Windows Explorer), but it actually has the .rpgame at the end of the file name, you are fine...It's just some goofy windows junk. If it REALLY bothers you, you could always add a few entries into the registry, but the base underlying "issue"(as in not an issue, only a perceived one) is that none of the RPTools file types "register" themselves to a specific application. Oh, it's also possible that the file name extension may not matter any way. I know at least in MapTool, you can import any of the "filetypes" Maptool supports even if it has the .zip extension(well.... at least the few that I have tried don't complain and work fine anyway)
Not sure if I fully followed your thoughts or not, but I hope this helps.
