Feature: Character Importer/Exporter

Jump to: navigation, search

PLEASE NOTE: Roll20 Enhancement Suite (aka VTT es/ R20es), is not part of BetteR20 or 5eTools. However; as BetteR20 installation is enhanced/simplified by already having VTT es/R20es installed, this Wiki covers its content to (HOPEFULLY) prevent BetteR20 users from requesting help on BetteR20 issues on the VTTes/R20es Discord server or other platforms (Reddit/Roll20.net Forum, etc).

FAQ

Cannot Import the Character (PC)

This FAQ assumes, you have a JSON file that you made by Exporting through VTTes' Character Importer/Exporter or BetteR20's Pauper's Vault
You know which of those two you use, and that the file IS NOT a different file, different file type (like .XML, .PDF, Gsheet or .orcbrew/.orcbrew2), and that you've correctly followed the steps for using the exporter.
This occurs when the file isn't valid for the importer.
SOLUTION  : IF you are using a valid JSON that was exported from Roll20 through the exporter. Then it should import through the same. IF you made by Exporting through VTTes' Character Importer/Exporter or BetteR20's Pauper's Vault, use that same feature to import it. If your not sure which you used - try one, then the other.
Best Practices

None as yet (Do you have any suggestions?)
