:shock: When you ask a question then aswer it yourself, is it two different voices? Do these voices converse often. Is one 'bad' the other 'good'? Do they have names?

Modifying a drawable probably isn't needed. If you need to modify you could just erase and recreate. The only reason I thought of associating a name with it was to remove it later. I've had several thoughts on how to implement area of effect stuff. One was to throw down a drawable, see what's under ...

Drawables via Scripting

This might have been covered somewhere else but since I can't find it I'll ask. Will the new scripting functionality be able to draw the standard map tool lines, shapes, and templates? Can we assign them names for manipulation later? Will there be a function to return tokens inside/touching the draw...

On the adjust grid box.. cool, I got numbers. A couple of things though You have to hit enter in the text entry field to get it to adjust. This took me a minute to figure out. An apply button would be nice. I can't zoom in the adjust grid dialog box. Its probably another mouse wheel thing. A sliding...

Base Character Sheet vs. Overlay

I'm sorry for the long posts. I've got to vent the stuff somewhere. So to you, my unwitting victems, I apologize. Most game systems start with some base statistics and build on those through the choice of race. The DM/Player further modifies character sheets as the character increases in power throu...

Re: CampaignTool ?

Sell Them! Fame... Fortune... Riches... <sniff> money? maybe that would finally get my wife off my back about gaming when she saw the $2.50 come in each week via paypal. OK, quick hit.

I really like the idea of multiple script language support. It diffuses the initial group learning curve but you're going to wind up with different users with different scripting languages attemping to integrate them together. Should make things 'interesting'. I like the plug-in idea. All that said,...

Here's a long ramble. A character sheet is, at its base, a data repository, possibly with embedded functions. In the end it doesn't matter what's back there, you just want a common interface to it from the Character Sheet Tool. But really the functionality goes beyond that. What would be nice is a g...

It doesn't matter to me one way or the other as long as I have access to data (and methods) associated with tokens, character sheets, and maps in a user friendly way. The syntax for accessing the data (and methods) should be understandable I have to learn a new scripting language regardless. The rea...

I believe generic is the way to go. Give your online comunity the ability to create mods for different games, then see what catches fire. It leverages your time and gives the rest of us geeks something to create and share. Of course, coding generic is often harder the coding specific, but then you w...
