  • Trouble with Affects Others Only & Attack modifiers

    Hey,

    So I think I have the latest version of HL; 7.6b right? With that out of the way, I'm finding that when I create a power that boosts a stat/defence with either Affects Only Others or Attack, it still increases on the character - which causes problems when said stat/defence is near the PL limit already.

    Anyone know what I am talking about? Anyone know how to fix it?

    Thanks

    That sounds like a definite bug. I don't have the opportunity to look into it now I don't work for Lone Wolf, but I unofficially patch things via the editor but log it as a bug at http://forums.wolflair.com/showthread.php?t=48331 and I will try to look into it. I know there are some scripts you can set to make things not count against PL when certain extras are set.

      Ok!

      Did that. Thanks for the advice.
      I'd like to know if anyone else has this issue too?

        Definitely a bug. I see it too. Oddly enough, the Extra for Affects Others Only sets a tag that states that it should indicate that the power doesn't affect the user themself, so this really shouldn't be flagging things.

        Do you have the bug number? I maintain a list of open defects at http://forums.wolflair.com/showthread.php?t=55225 just so that we know what's being addressed.

          I think so?

          I assume you mean the Case Number? Which is 101563.

            Looks like I might need the full URL to access it. Could also be it will only work for you.

            Fair warning, fixing M&M bugs seems to have been pretty low priority for them. Between Realmworks and more lucrative properties like Pathfinder, they have their hands full.

              Ha ha, thanks for the warning.
              I kinda got that impression when the response was 'Thanks, we'll add it to the list'.

              I'm sure I can find some work arounds.
