If you are using Fantasy Grounds and playing something other than 5e and the module doesn’t show up…

Although all my mods are now created as ‘Any Ruleset‘ this was not always the case, and not all have been updated yet. If you run into this problem, here are some work arounds.

EASIEST: You can try installing a mod like this free one that allows you to open mods from any ruleset, even if it isn’t the ruleset of your current game.

CUSTOM: You can also make a temporary 5e game and open the mod(s). Then type /export. Drag all the maps from any mods you want into the window that comes up and name it something appropriate. Make sure you have the ‘Any Ruleset‘ circle checked. Hit the ‘Export‘ button at the bottom. You should now be able to activate this new module and open up all the maps in games with different rulesets.
