Exporting a Creature

Exporting a creature is quite simple. Go to the main window and select the creature you wish to export. Then, go to the File->Export->Current Creature... menu. You will be prompted to choose a filename. The default extension is .Creature, and it is recommended that you use this for creatures.

A good use for exporting/importing of creatures is for players to edit or create their characters with their copy of DM Genie, and then send the DM the .Creature file so he or she can import it into the campaign.

Importing a Creature

If DM Genie is not running, double-click the file and it will start up and import the creature. If DM Genie is already running, from the main window go to the File->Import menu. You will be asked to select a file and then click “Open”. You will then be asked for the name to give the new creature. You can keep the default (which is the name that the person who exported it gave the creature) or rename it as you like. The creature is added to the currently selected group. If the creature came from a different campaign, you may have some Unknowns Found During Import .
