Long time gamer, new Maptool user here.
Been looking at VTT software for a while, to support my gaming group in local play - (we wanted something for battlemaps, visual aids, etc.).
We all still roll dice, move minis, etc. by hand personally, and like it that way (no offense to anyone else who likes to automate their combat, if it makes you happy, I am happy for you....
After a bit of research I selected Maptool. While it is not as "pretty" as some of newer offerings out there - it does seem hands down, to have the most robust feature set - and looks like it can do most of what we need it to do.
While it seems the community does not have the numbers it used to, that there is still a bit of participation here, so I decided to get an account, and share experiences, questions, etc.
As an IT professional, I can appreciate the hard work so many have put into this project over the years.
I am trying to watch as many videos, read tutorials and what not as fast as I can, and have managed to figure a lot of stuff out ....(thanks to those who have worked on documentation....I know I hate making documentation....).
As soon as I can figure out the best forums to post any questions, I will do so.
I am experimenting with both 1.4.05 (works great!) and 184.108.40.206 (I think I am doing some thing wrong....).
Awesome to have you here. Welcome to our community.
