    Default New computer, in need of some old resources

    So as it appears, the offline 4e character builder thread has gone the way of the long long ago. Recently I was forced to rebuild and update my pc, and in the process lost many resources including the offline builder. Does anyone have a link to it, or am I SOL?

    The threads are still there, you just have to tell the forum to display older threads at the bottom of the page. Anyhow, try e-mailing Scrivener about it

    (Please note: these instructions have only been tested in Windows 10; I do not have Windows 11)

    What you want is to follow these instructions:
    1. Get the 1.4.5 builder.zip from https://drive.google.com/file/d/166p...-qlUkh9_5/view
    2. Extract builder.zip to a temporary folder.
    3. Get the 1.4.6.1 CBInstaller.exe and CBLoader.zip from https://github.com/CBLoader/CBLoader/releases/latest and save them in the same folder as (2) above, replacing the 1.4.5 CBInstaller.exe.
    4. Run CBInstaller.exe (Windows may complain, and you'll probably have to approve several elevated permissions)
    5. Delete the "Character Builder" shortcut it creates automatically. (Some people have reported this shortcut does not get created for them; that's fine, move on if that's the case.)
    6. Move everything from steps 1 and 3 except builder.zip into %APPDATA%\CBLoader\ (which did get created above)
    7. Run CBInstaller.exe from that folder. This should properly install CBLoader and create a "CBLoader" shortcut.
    I did have it also create another CBLoader.zip file on the desktop when I ran the shortcut from the desktop, which may not be ideal.
    This will result in 1.4.6.1 installed correctly, though (it will report itself as 1.4.6 once the Builder's loaded).

    If these instructions are not working, you may need to uninstall from Add or Remove Programs, restart your computer, and try again.

    Alright, followed the steps from the discord. I am getting a "contact wotc" error message when trying to run the loader after everything has ran and installed. Thoughts?

    If it isn't apparent and not well known, I am technologically inept, and last time I tried this someone literally had to hold my hand the entire time.

    No idea, but you can probably ask around in #resource-discussion on the 4e discord, someone there will probably know.

    Alright! I think I missed step 4 somewhere along the way, but we got it up, working properly, and happily updated.

    This was a hefty dose of nostalgia!

    Is there any way of filtering options by sourcebooks in the CB?
