If you have a system you would like to use but it is not in the list above, it may just work out of the box! If you're finding that it is not or misbehaving, read the section entitled "Advanced Customization for Unsupported Systems".
Combat Numbers includes an additional Canvas Layer Control button in the toolbar, seen as "#". Currently, this is only available for GMs. When clicked, you are presented with two toggleable options:
Adjust Combat Numbers settings within your macros! You can access the API via
window.combatNumbers, and have access to these methods which affect the canvas layer controls:

Currently, it's tough to support every popular system out there for Foundry. In the module settings, you can specify "HP Object Path" and "Temporary HP Object Path".
