Updating PCGen?

Description

I'm sorry if this seems really frivolous, but I've been trying to add the source books for the content that has the giant isopod familiar, from skulls and shackles. I found that I have to update my version of pcgen to the latest autobuild and, i have no idea how to do that. I tried following the directions on the pcgen website, but I don't understand. I can't find the files that they are talking about. Is there a Guide to Updating for people who don't understand computer language. I am talking like, I'm a person who just started using computers for dnd related stuff and I have no idea what I'm doing.

Hi Jane,

Grabbing the autobuild can be a bit daunting. Sadly, the website is not as user friendly as we'd like it, but this is being addressed.

Download this link: http://pcgen.org/autobuilds/downloads/pcgen-6.05.04-SNAPSHOT-full.zip (OR) you can wait 24-48 hours, and the next alpha release of 6.05.04 will be released through the normal channels.

The zip file is the entire pcgen program, without the installation. Basically, you can load it as is.

If you want just the skulls and shackles materials, that should be included in the last alpha release of 6.05.03 - which you can download and install on windows. Here is that link:
http://sourceforge.net/projects/pcgen/files/PCGen%20Unstable/6.05.03/

I assume you will want the installation version (http://sourceforge.net/projects/pcgen/files/PCGen%20Unstable/6.05.03/pcgen60503_win_install.exe/download)

If you want just the skulls and shackles, I'll upload a zip folder of that. You would download that, navigate to the pcgen folder, find the data folder, and simply unzip the contents into the data directory.

If you need something else, please don't hesitate to ask.

Cheers,
Andrew
