Jay, is there any update on 4E settings file from anyone? I know you have been spending a lot of time on Maptool (States and templates are way cool!) and Chartool, but a few people seem to have started hacking on the Inittool files and I was wondering if anyone had given you any updates.

Get your Dropbox 2GB via my referral link, and as a bonus, I get an extra 250 MB of space. Even if you don't don't use my link, I still enthusiastically recommend Dropbox..

The settings file for CT & IT is going well. Fobbo & team have gotten all of the races, classes, and armor entered. The fighter and rogue powers are also entered. The rest of the powers are also being entered. What we have left are feats & magic items. I've gotten most of the functionality ready, including the Initiative rolling. Still need to do feats and then find an easier way to create magic items and then it will be ready for testing.

This is great I love reading how things are moving along and how new ideas are being projected along the way.

UG I feel for you I do I have many children of my own I won't relay how many because you'll all wonder if we have a tv in the house :lol:

So, are we any closer to a 4E settings file? Not to sound impatient or anything, but, ya know...

I'm impatient :)

And I suck because I've been off galivanting around in the woods for almost a week instead of doing something Important like assisting with the data entry.

I suspect all of the folks working on it have been drawn into the mayhem that is the latest batch of MT updates, and if so, you are all excused.

We have made more progress on the powers... I believe that the wizard, warlock and ranger powers were submitted since Jay's last update. I have to revisit the ranger powers to fix some issues. I don't know how the other stuff is going... Fobbo should be able to provide more information...

 Post subject: Game config files sharing
PostPosted: Wed Jul 30, 2008 4:54 pm 
I have been lurking for a few days now (I think this group of devs and users is excellent), but I have not been able to definitavely conclude whether the settings files for the various tools (MT, IT, CT) are shared or if each tool needs a separate and different settings file for, say, 4e.

Either way, I am happy to help with a settings files for 4e - in particular for IT and CT as those are what I would make use of first.

Also, in the future I might be able to help with actual development as I am a long-time java dev myself.

Welcome to the forums TwistedNoodle!

The game settings files for CT & IT are the same file, MT uses its own.

Help is always appreciated. You should contact Fobbo to see if you can help with the 4e game settings file. You are also welcome to work on CT/IT code if you wish. That is available in SVN. Instructions are here: http://forums.rptools.net/viewtopic.php?t=421

 Post subject: 4e settings for Map Tool
PostPosted: Sun Aug 17, 2008 9:02 am 
So, I have been following (and doing a little bit of helping) in the development of the 4e settings file for CT and IT. Does anyone know about the 4e specifications for MT? Is it done? Is it in progress? Can I help?

I am itching to use MT in its full glory. I have every intention of using it as is, but if it can be further awesomized by 4e configuration then I would like to help speed that process along in any way I can.

Thanks!

IT & CT use the same game settings file. The problem is that it is too big to post to the gallery. I've been looking for away around this but it isn't ready yet. There is an older version of the game settings file on the gallery, but I'm not sure that it works any longer. I'll try to get a new build out next week with all of the latest stuff in it.

I know Jay is trying to get a new build out but I was wondering if anyone had a copy of the dnd4e.rpgame file that they may be willing to PM or e-mail to me? I really like the look of the tool and a 4e rule set would be a lifesaver.

Bump.

My simple question is, can I use Init Tool to run 4E combats yet?

Hello all,
I was just getting ready to sit down and write a 4th ed encounter tracker for my computer so I could help move combats along faster. Befor i did that I thought I would come online and see if someone had already done it for me and I found this. The IT is perfect for what I want but it seems to not be 4e ready yet. Can I help and if so where do I need to go to get signed up to start.

thanks,
Red
