Pathfinder 1E Sheets: CMD Calculations


Recommended Posts


Just so you know, I have unfollowed all other topics I am on. Do you want me to write a trouble report for each one, or just have this as a running dialogue of various issues?

Anyway, so I know you worked it previously, but CMD calculations still aren't right (Pathfinder sheet).

Current Sheet: https://www.myth-weavers.com/sheets/?id=2835833

So, the auto-calc has a value of 20, and the FCMD of 16.

Formula for CMB = 10 + BAB (5) + STR (4) + DEX (4) + special size mod (none in this case).
So, base CMB would be 23, per above.
In addition, Dodge + DEX + Misc should go to CMB ... and in this case there is a +1 for deflection to bring it to 24. So, why does it read only 20?

For FCMD, same thing, but 23 (real CMD) - DEX (4) - Dodge (none) = 19. It DOES seem like the proper reduction of four, but the base CMD is still off.

EDIT: Yes, cache was cleared. That will be my standard ... a cache clear followed by a drop/re-assign of the Web page ... prior to trouble calls.

Sorry, misread! Looks like the issue is that the calculator is using ACDex instead of DexMod, and ACDex was manually set to 0 giving 14. Temporarily fixing ACDex will give you the desired result while I fix the calculation.

Okay, I found an odd one, ha!

So, the CMD is right BUT the FCMD isn't. This character has a DEX penalty, so instead of including a penalty to DEX, it used the -1 DEX mod value and added it back into FCMD from CMD.

Makes me wonder if it does that if "Misc" box from AC were a negative (like what I do with barbarian's or certain rare curses and drawbacks, for example).
