<html>A stack overflow has occurred.<p>This is commonly because a macro being used has exceeded the stack space specified when MapTool was executed.<br>Please run MapTool again and specify a larger stack size.
As others have said, this is a common problem. I'm on Win7 x64, Java 1.7 (u7), MaptoolLauncher.exe (1024/64/2) and it works fine. The "bandage" fix is to bump up your stack size to 4mb or 8mb or higher, but if that doesn't work, I'm not sure what to tell you. Try uninstalling and reinstalling Java. Try using the other .bats and modifying the settings, as other posters mentioned.
I understand it's my "fault" for writing overly complex code for the MTparser to work through, but since I don't experience the problem myself, it's impossible for me to fix the code so it works for everyone. If you have any debug information you can post, I could look into it.
Ok so shadowrun 4ed used a init that was dice based, the new 5th ed uses two stats added together plus a dice roll(s).
Can anyone modify that init macro so it will work with new inputs?
Such as Intuition + Reaction + Initiative Dice (1d6) = Initiative.
Well, aren't you in luck!SR5 Campaign
Here's the campaign file I've been working with. It's a little cleaned up but by no means release-ready. What it's got:
* SR5 style initiative (but no button yet to reduce everyone's init by 10).
* SR5 ammo modes
* Dialog/frame window sizes fixed (I hope?)
* Stun damage overflow fix
* Some error messages cleaned up
Give it a run and tell me what you think.
A question: What's the best way to deal with initiative passes? Every time everyone's initiatives are run through, the next pass begins and everyone's initiative scores are reduced by 10. If you're at 0 or lower you don't get to go that pass. I could make a new button to do the -10s, or I could have do that on the INIT button when no other tokens are selected. Problems: method #1 is ugly and clunky, while method #2 is somewhat obscured from the users. How should I do it? Also, if someone's init is reduced to 0, should they be removed from the list or just left there? Curious what other users would prefer.
