Pathfinder Summoner's Eidolon not showing Racial Abilities (ie Skills chooser)


When creating a Summoner's Eidolon, versions up to 5.17.16 had, on the Feats and Abilities tab, a sub-tab "Racial Abilities" where you could choose an extra 4 skills to be class skills for the Eidolon.

in 5/17.17, 5.17.18 we've lost this tab and can't choose the extra 4 class skills.


Windows 7, Java 6, PCGen 5.17.17 or 5.17.18 (5.17.16 OK)

I am unable to reproduce this with the current source (r17999). It could be that the issue has been fixed as part of other work.

If you can still reproduce this could you please provide a sample character or a set of steps to reproduce it please?

I think this was fixed as part of the Master and companion not linking and/or updating issue you already fixed. No time to test this currently.

It works, but only IF the master is saved, and it won't update till after the saved master is leveled. However, making a summoner, adding the Eidolon without saving doesn't grant the items.

I'm still unable to reproduce this, even with an unsaved summoner.
Steps I am using:
Open pcgen, load source Pathfinder RPG for Players - Advanced
Create an int 14 (other stats 10) human, summoner 1
Select explorer's outfit when offered.
Go to companions tab, click create new Eidolon, select Eidolon (Biped).
Click Switch to
On Feats and abilities tab note Racial Abilities tab with Eidolon Skill category with 4 choices remaining.

I think it's my multiple reloading just killing things then. I think the main issue has been resolved. You can push this forward as resolved. Let Saxum close it if it's working for him.
