I saw a post but cannot find it again that showed how to convert on the fly. I do not want to resticker and just want to convert on the fly. How do I do this?

From the fire power value take away one less than the proficiency rating. So for FP 6 Prof. 2 you would end up with Prof. FP 5 (6 - (2 - 1)). For FP 5 Prof. 4 you would end up with Prof. FP 2 (5 - (4 - 1)).

Have a look at my proficiency value list in the files section. It gives a visual aid in conversion.

The math might be a little bit simpler as New FP = Old FP - Proficiency + 1.

Other than the fact that math has already be stated above in other posts that formula you've written could really use some parenthesis to make it absolutely clear which order the operation should take place because you could end up with different numbers depending on what you do first.

Actually, my "version" of the formula does not require parenthesis, which is why my "version" is slightly easier.

If you take the original "version" of FP - (P - 1) and apply the Distributive law of mathematics you come up with FP - P + 1 and no parens.

Both versions are correct. My "version" eliminates one mental step since most people, when looking at "FP - (p - 1)" will run away screaming because there is math involved while most war gamers will first deduct 1 from P and then deduct that total from FP, doing the work in reverse order of presentation.

Anyway, enjoy the game.
