PostPosted: Mon Oct 02, 2017 1:33 pm 
would you be able to help or at least point me in the right direction on what to do with the chartools program of maptools? I have tried get it to work as it would be nice to have from my PCs so i can see their char sheet too (and run macros off of them).

so i have the most recent version of Java to run it. have tried all 3 of the most recent versions of it but i still keep getting this, when opening and when ever i try to do anything in it.

gathering from the error, its a macro issue. My guess is that something like:
if(x > "not a number") or something similar...
which will throw this kind of error. Without actually seeing the macro itself, its hard to tell the exact issue.

A really wild guess good be: characteristics of the token not set.

You can try using a Java 7 install... if that fails you'll probably have to go down to 6: http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/java/ ... 39210.html

But, at this point, I really don't think this tool is integrated enough into MT to make it worth the trouble or security risk. And it's certainly not likely to get updated any time soon. Depending on the system you're going to use, there may already be a framework with a decent character sheet capability already built for it. MT's macro language has grown leaps and bounds since this tool was created.
