If you're a DM that uses Rumble Framework V5, and have a DDI account, and want to import NPCs from the compendium with a time-saver tool, my first release of my importer is available here:http://forums.rptools.net/viewtopic.php?f=10&t=23821&p=242221#p242221
All I ask is that you let me know what doesn't import properly to save me the trouble of performing hundreds of test to see what breaks it.
I don't use Build 89 so I can't test this but the video looks very cool! Longshot's importer can do one or two things mine can't which is quite a feat considering I released mine back in Oct 2012. In particular, I am referring to the fact it is smart enough to pick up secondary powers and exclude irrelevant conditions.
For those of you fed up with the 542-step process of creating a PC (one of the first of a great many things that turned me off about this framework), I invite you to go here
and watch the two new videos at the end of the "Advanced Importing Concepts" section. As you can see, hours (possibly days
!) of work is reduced to less than ten minutes
!!! OK verifying powers can take a while but you get the idea.
Let me be clear. As always, I wrote this feature to help MPB
users and not
Rumble users. Yes, most MPBers have given me feedback saying they don't want to leave my campaign file to create their tokens. I still say Rumble has the best property and power editing interface around so I am asking them to revise this perspective. Luckily for Rumble fans, this feature intersects with their agenda so I figured, "Hey, why not?"
. Enjoy ...
