Topic: Import Character sheets (3.5 only for now)

Hi guys and girls,

In the newest version of our app it is possible to import character sheets from Etools and PCgen!

To import from PCgen:

  • Transfer your .pcg file to your phone (email yourself)

  • Click the .pcg file and if needed choose our application to open it

  • Your done smile


To import from Etools:
Etools is a D&D 3.5 computer tool to manage your character sheets, and although a bit old (like 3.5) it is very nice in my opinion.

So how do we do this?
1. First of all, we need to open the character sheet in Etools. Once it is loaded, we go to File->Export to..->XML.

2. After you exported your sheet to XML, we need to get it to our phones.
Email the XML file or transfer it in any other way to your device and click on the file.
3. Now a popup appears with what app we want to open the file, select our D&D app.

Wait a few seconds while the character is being imported and once it is done, you can view the character in the character manager section.

Note: for this functionality you need to unlock the character manager.

Re: Import Character sheets (3.5 only for now)

Not sure if this is the appropriate place for this question, but where do I find free xml character sheets online?  I'm having the hardest luck trying to find any at all, let alone free ones.
I have no clue how to create one myself and it would be nice to see a 3.5 version available.

Try to download pcgen, it comes with a number of ready made character sheets. Getting etools is a bit harder but not impossible if yous earch well wink

Is there a character creator, or only a viewer for imported sheets?
