Adding home made Qualities in Chummer Support
« on: (03:40:19/09-21-17) »
So, I'm creating a character with some homemade qualities. Trying to get them into Chummer has been a challenge. I've found the file that has the qualities and I understand how the qualities are written. But when I after changing it open Chummer nothing has changed, please help :)

Did you simply rewrite or add qualities to the original qualities.xml file, or did you make a custom_qualities.xml file?  Also, knowing which version will help, along with the code you're trying to use.

Thanks for responding :D
I did simply try to rewrite the original yes, should I not do that? I kept the original so I could back to that no problem :)


Chummer 5a - Version 5.194.0

The code I tried to use is as followed:

<quality>
      <id>68cfe94a-fa7e-4129-a9b9-b5d73homeb01</id>
      <name>Hibernator(HACK)</name>
      <karma>-8</karma>
      <category>Negative</category>
      <bonus />
      <required>
        <oneof>
          <quality>Changeling (Class I SURGE)</quality>
          <quality>Changeling (Class II SURGE)</quality>
          <quality>Changeling (Class III SURGE)</quality>
        </oneof>
      </required>
      <source>HACK</source>
      <page>HACK</page>
      <metagenetic>yes</metagenetic>
    </quality>

Two things:

1 - The GUID line is supposed to be hexadecimal, and you've added illegal characters.  This most likely will be the cause.  I do not know if a Base64 form is acceptable in Chummer5 or not; probably not.
2 - Do you have an entry for "HACK" in the books.html or a custom_books.html file?  If there is no such book enabled, then all such items that are <source>HACK</source> will never show.
