the dark red of the extra effort table and the dark blue of the lower EE table are not readable at all. White or yellow text might fix this even for B/W printers.

If the other colors and greys can be lightened up just a touch, they'd transfer well.

I'm not saying "go do this now!" since I understand, perfectly, being pressed for time. But I thought i could provide some input.
I'm experimenting now, trying to lighten the whole sheet up a bit... expect a new release today or tomorrow.

Now, time for you to get to work on the back side. :)

How about: range penalties, hit location penalties (including all the added goodies from Martial Arts), I'd move the posture table and rapid fire table to the back...

Onkl, fantastic job, by the way.

It's not bad, but can somebody tell me what the advantage over the mook's sheets is? Sell me on these, please.

Oh but I do have such sheets: For my Fallout Campaign "Atomschlag", I made a "combat book" ... it was pretty complete, but then again... what good is it to make a book when you can just use the rule book ;)

Anyway..

Release 1.5, added Disclaimer and lightened up the colors.

I've personally missed some defense options on The Mooks sheet, like retreat and such...

I's not clear from the context of your post, whether your printer is a colour laser or a black-and-white later.

I've gotten my B&W laser set up again, so I can do a printout soon, and give some more feedback.

I printed several sheet yesterday, old version in color and b&w, new versions in color and b&w... color looks pretty ok to me now... b&w does still need a lot of work imo.

Thanks for testing, I'm looking forward to what you have to say...

Well, I went ahead and made a meager effort myself at making a flowchart and combat cards for unarmed combat. I started a thread.
