Default Character builder and International Measures

Hi, I'm using GCB to create my characters, and I would really like some info on how(if it's possible) you can print instead of lbs and feets, kgs and meters. Is there any way?

Thanks a lot.

If you have the program fully updated, with all the data files, you should have a variant data file called "Variant Basic Set 4e - Metric Equipment". To load it, go to Tools - Options - Data Sets, and click Change. You'll be given a list of data sets to add to the list, which should include the file I mentioned. Once you add it, click "Load Now". Your character details should now appear in metric.

I can't help you myself, sorry. Someone should be able to though. Good luck. :)

Unless Zarnick's mistaken about which program he's using, giving him instructions for GURPS Character Assistant (GCA) won't help him much with GURPS Character Builder (GCB). ;)

Thanks, but since I've told, I'm using GCB(I just didn't find a board for it), and using 3e still, since they have not yet translated the basic set to my own language(but they will...I know they will..hehe)

Thanks a lot.

I don't know whether the answer is there or not, but you could try going to the Meacreator Website (GCB is a specialized build of Metacreator that was licensed by SJ Games for 3rd edition), and looking on their Discussion Board, or possibly the FAQ. Failing both of those, I believe there is a Support contact thingy at the bottom, and someone with Alterego Software may be able to help you out.

Well, GCA4 supports custom character sheets, so making a sheet like that is possible. However, I don't think that anyone has created a sheet like that yet (assuming that you mean the basic 3e sheet: front & back).
