I'm not sure what a PCGen rpgrp file is. They did do some collaboration with us to share data, but that was a long time ago. So if it is that, it just might be an older version. I would have to look at the file to be sure, could you send email it to me?

Sorry for taking a while to add this. Just change the extension to .rpgrp. I would love to be able to use PC-Gen to create characters for Pathfinder and export the token in CharacterTool for lmarkus 3.5/Pathfinder framework.

I wasn't until now, I've been trying to get the next build out. Sorry about that.

The format for this file is correct, but it was set up for the old d20 3.5 settings file. So the script or print file being used in PCGen needs to be upgraded to 4e settings file. Groups were never upgraded to use the zip file format, so it should still be possible to do this correctly from PCGen. However, the data structure w/ all of the modifiers being loaded from the database is fairly complex and would be difficult to duplicate. There are also problems with keeping the images in order since they aren't stored in the group file. I'll need to fix that some time.

I've attached a 4e group file for comparison.

Hi folks

To update everybody on this, the tracker has been completed and there are now new outputsheets which work with InitiativeTool 1.1.b8 and will be available in the next PCGen alpha release. In the mean time I've put these files up in my gallery for all who want to use them, they should work fine in any version of PCGen from the last few years. Enjoy!
