Have a question?
Thanks Nick. Plugging away on motion maps, creature class template library, and the other items from the forums.
WIth the largest block of work behind us (core feature library/rules library conversion). I'm hoping for some rapid progress. But coding is funny that way. The smallest hitch can cause massive delays.
Motion maps look wonderful! Considering the application is usable now, keep up the awesome work. I don't care how long it takes for a "final" version as long as the product is awesome and I can keep playing with all of the features you add. :D
Good for you Adam. I'm not sure why you felt compelled to be a jerk to me (and the team) here as a result of your decisions however. Honestly, We're working our tails off to do all the things that MindGene promised under our name despite the trend in Kickstarter to just throw in the towel. While this does not require you to use the software or even follow our progress anymore, I do feel that it's uncalled for to be rude to us and those folks who are still interested.
If you felt like you need to complain, I'd have loved to have heard from you directly even once prior to you pushing to our board with negative comments.
Thanks for the original support and hopefully you'll find your way back eventually.
No, there's no confusion; I understand exactly how the d20Pro system works, having started using it nearly a decade ago. D20Pro Unlimited was due three years ago, and the full version still isn't available. I shut off notifications for the project quite some time ago, and I only come back to check on updates every few months to see how poorly the project is progressing to its theoretical conclusion (which I assume will be sometime around 2030 based on Mesa Mundi's abilities). My group switched to Fantasy Grounds nearly two years ago, and it's been nice having a piece of software actually do what its designers said it will do without having to endure literal years of excuses and failure.
Honestly, at this point it's just amusing to see this project continue to flounder.
Yes, the current work-in-progress guide is available here:
3.7.3 is close to complete as well. Had a bit of a snafu due to the massive wind storm up in the new england area -- recovered and moving forward again now. We should be able to focus more on tutorials and docs post launch.
Is there documentation or a user's guide?
Adam, I checked on your backer level as well and you've got full access to all of our work on the project thus far and will continue to receive updates as we move forward with additional features and what not. I'm not sure if you've been following the project progress, but Unlimited was rolled into standard D20PRO so there is no separate Unlimited product to download or acquire.
Perhaps that's where your confusion has arisen, however that announcement went out quiet some time ago.
Pausing coding on a saturday to reply -- Adam. you can download and install D20PRO now. All of the updates have been rolled in and are available -- as more features are ready and released, they are rolled into the 3.7.x branch.
I was actually working on a release for today (22.214.171.124) but there was a problem with some odd keystroke thing throwing null exceptions so I'm debugging that first.
http://pubs.d20pro.com/Unstable/126.96.36.199/ was the last unstable update prior to this keystroke issue.
If you have direct questions or priorities you'd like, I'm usually available on discord. Feel free to check in on the channel (again, I've posted links to the KS folks before)
Oh, look. Ten months after I last checked in with this project and d20Pro Unlimited STILL isn't available.
Glad the team is still "all in" while working on other projects.
Hi Jim. Simple answer is "nope". Can you code and fiddle? "yes".
Spellbook is nearly done for 5e and will get shipped to folks who already have the PHB soon as it's ready. Class traits are also done.
Weird question, I know, but is the plan now to kind of make d20Pro the package of choice for people who like to code and fiddle? I was hoping there would be more friendliness--particularly when it comes to 5e.
3.7.2 is available for download directly from D20PRO or the pubs archive. I've also started an update summary for 3.7.2 here:
more to come soon!
Thanks . The KS update editor is so flaky..
Oops, the download is here. http://pubs.d20pro.com/Public_Beta/188.8.131.52/
And the forum post.
@Owlbear: Thanks for the new beta! One thing: you used the same link url for the build notes as you did for the link to the branch repo. If this has already been noted somewhere else, apologies....
Hi Bruce. you just need to download the application from http://d20pro.com/getd20pro, or the public beta from http://pubs.d20pro.com/
Once installed, you can either log in with your account you registered/created when we initially sent out the backer messages or create a new account. If you create a new one, please send us the info in an email at support at d20pro dot com.
Also, thanks for supporting us. 3.7.2. is very close to release, full KS update is imminent as well!
Hey MesaMundi folks!
How do I go about activating a D20 Pro account to allow me to get the newer content I paid for? Or is that available yet?

Preview of docs can be found here:
forum post about the doc status is here
Almost, KrilionGD (forum/discord handle) has been working on docs for the new release and D20PRO in general. His docs are going thru a proofing stage but should be available extremely soon!
Soon as Kril approves a share, I'll update the KS with a link to either the production area or an early access review area. We'd love some feedback and what not to help refine the docs and process.
Is there any documentation or a user manual out?
Hero Lab importer is trucking along. It'll likely release after gencon tho as Thraxxis is on vacation with his family for a week and I'm gearing up for Gen Con itself. We're really close tho on that one!
(thanks about the announcement, we got soft approval back in Sept... and have had to sit on it for months for various reasons... at least it is finally out and in the open)
I just read the email about the licensing agreement with WotC, congrats!
I also saw the proposed feature list for 3.7.2...is the Hero Lab native importer for PF going to make it in there?
Glad to hear it. Just FYI. I'll be traveling pre-gen con for the next week or two. If I'm slow to reply here it's not because I've forgotten you all!
I'll check in and be online periodically -- and the code has been packed up for transport!
Thanks for the quick reply and good news. I'm sure I don't have to tell you how important the ability to use HL data in d20Pro is to a lot of us, and cutting out the extra step of exporting from HL before importing into d20Pro is just icing on the cake. Cool!
HL doesn't want to support custom exporters going forward so the basic importer will not pick up mythic stuff because we're not getting the data from HL. Work on the native importer is definitely moving forward tho. We're targeting end of July early August (pre-gen con) for native support
Any idea when the Hero Lab importer will get some love? I totally understand that the native .por importer is a WIP, but the basic .hld20pro importer seems to be backsliding (setting all ability scores to 10, adding fighter levels instead of mythic tiers, etc.) as the d20Pro versions increase...
working our way there. To bring multitouch online we have to replace the current map renderer with a JFX renderer. That's part of the plan for the map update which is definitely coming up in the queue.
Any word on multi touch support?
yes, we're running a number of starfinder games at GenCon on D20PRO -- conversion is already underway! We may not be ready to launch the product at GenCon, but we're going to try to have it available shortly after.
Are there plans for a Starfinder ruleset?
Hey Jim, backer only post going out today or tomorrow about this topic and more.
Since it's a new month...any licensing updates?
Just about anywhere. Then open the Content Library, selected the Creature Library and click on Import -> d20pro.
That should bring the updated creature into the system!
Also, we're testing .20 this weekend with a plan to roll out the update and bug fixes early to middle of next week!
where do we put that ctr file?
On a side note, the public beta is out (184.108.40.206). There was a mistake on the Young Red Dragon's (Lenny) breath weapon. Please grab the updated ctr file from here: http://pubs.d20pro.com/Public_Beta/220.127.116.11/
Thanks Jim. All will be revealed *soon(tm)*. FG had to jump thru a lot of hoops as well. When we can finally say anything officially, it'll be all good news, I promise :).
This is a slam of the other party in this, not you: this seems to be taking a huge amount of time compared to how seemingly quickly they handed licensing to FG.
My question was poorly worded because it's a bit meta-legal...is there any estimate you can communicate of when you will be able to communicate 5e licensing? Sounds like the answer is 'no', but I was looking for something like "we expect to be able to communicate more by Q3 2017"...so not a communication of a deal but an estimate of when you hope to be able to communicate a deal's been reached.
Yes, but it's all under nda. That being said, public beta, KS update and 5e srd news tomorrow!
Is there a potential timetable for when you can discuss 5e licensing?
Login credentials were last sent in an e-mail dated March 31st (if you haven't deleted it).
I also could not get into the beta access.....could you direct message me too?
Should have gone through. Hotel network is pretty bad.
I can't get into the BetaBuilds archive to get 3.6.16. Can you direct message me so I can get my access back? Thanks.
Doing the best we can Marcos. The project was over spec'd and underestimated -- read the updates and you'll get the details and understand where we are and what we've been doing.
Also, you're always welcome to message us directly if you have specific questions or join us on Discord. I try to check in a couple of times a day there to answer any questions.
Any chance you guys might ever finish this project? I mean seriously, finish the damn thing.
Hello Alexandre, I'm going to answer your support question via direct messaging so I can get you into the support system. As to the offline and/or changed port, Yes, you can run it on localhost (local to your system) which is effectively the same thing as "offline"
