Frequently Asked Questions

Below is a list of frequently asked questions. If you have a question that does not appear on the list, please Contact the Designer about your question.

1) What operating system compatibilities exist for Broadsword?

Please note that Broadsword requires the .NET framework 3.5 to work properly. This means Broadsword will only run on Windows XP, Windows Vista, and Windows 7 32 bit AND 64 bit.

Please run Windows Updates and install all of the latest Windows updates for your computer, including .NET 3.5. You will have to select Custom when running Windows Updates. This will provide you with the option of downloading and installing .NET 3.5.

You can also manually download and install .NET 3.5 with Service Pack 1 at the link below.

**NOTE** Broadsword v1.5 and newer is compatible with 64-bit OSes.

2) In Broadsword, in the list of character and item powers some of them do not have all the information.

This is a limitation for how much text can be added into the field. Basically, it is a battle between the maximum width of the column vs. how much text can be entered. Under the "From Book:" column in Broadsword it shows the source where this power can be found. Please refer to the appropriate DnD source for all information related to the power.

3) Why is the Player's Handbook 2 not already included?

A couple of questions have been asked as to why the Player's Handbook 2 is not included in the current release. This has been done this way to keep in line with the releases given each month from Wizards of the Coast.

If more requests come in to have the Player's Handbook 2 be included A.S.A.P. then it will be done. Otherwise, PH2 will be included for Broadsword 1.9, tentatively scheduled for July 2010 if not sooner.

IF YOU WISH TO VOTE FOR PH2 TO BE INCLUDED A.S.A.P. PLEASE SEND AN EMAIL TO THE DESIGNER IN THE "CONTACT THE DESIGNER" PAGE.

4) How am I able to download Broadsword and Maps? I go to these pages and they ask for a log in.

PLEASE NOTE THAT YOU MUST REGISTER AS A MEMBER IN ORDER TO DOWNLOAD MAPS AND BROADSWORD. REGISTRATION IS FREE.

The members page and log-in was added so Broadsword users who become members will

Please go to the Memebers page and register.

5) When my modifiers change any powers that include the modifier keyword bonuses do not update.

Please save and reload your character. This will process these bonus updates correctly.
