Post subject:  MapTool at PAX Prime 2010

Just a quick couple of images showing our setup running MapTool at PAX Seattle this year.

The table is the Locus from Geek Chic with Mesa Mundi Inc. screen technology inside. We're working together to create interactive gaming surfaces (I'm with Mesa Mundi).

MapTool is my preferred method of collaborative play for RPG's. The maps in this post and the Gencon post are all generated using Skeleton Key Games E-Adventure Tiles and are used for DND 3.5 games I've been running the last couple of years.

The Miniatures in the images below are tagged with either paper or fiducial markers for demonstration purposes. At this point, the build of MapTool being shown is stock. This means that the application isn't truly multitouch, but it does allow for finger (or other trackable object) interaction. Unfortunately the image shown doesn't show the fun lighting going on in this map. But there are about 4 different lighting events occurring in addition to a few characters/creatures with dark vision.

Cool! Thanks for the pics!

That's the kind of game table I would have liked a few years ago when I was still running a f2f game. Although I'd want more of a "table", meaning a surface for books and paper.

Still, it looks very sharp and I'm sure you got lots of oohs and ahhs over it, huh?

(Btw, if and when you want to talk about multitouch input for MT let me know. I'd be happy to help out with that.)

I have some friends moving back into town in the next two years and once we can get a group together I'm sure we'll try to do something like this. Hopefully there will be some neat tutorials/explanations by then, but in the mean time I can drool over the pictures

Any chance the maptools expansions you did to support TUIO will be merged back into the community?
I was working on some basic Multi-touch for maptools, but it looks like you're much further along than I got before real life interposed.
