Re: [1.5.4-rc.1] Optionally Expose FOW into VBL areas

I 100% want this. Problem is, we've wanted it for a while. It's a tough cookie to crack. The current implementation of FoW doesn't really lend itself to this and a rewrite of the renderer is required, but we're running into performance issues. We've tried a few things so far but we're still looking.

Re: A Pathfinder Hero Lab to Maptool converter

FYI We do have HeroLab support native inside MapTool now as of 1.5.0. Add any .por file to your Asset Library like a folder, click on it, it'll create tokens based on characters in the portfolio. It'll link to the por file as well and exposes access to the statblocks and images for that character. S...

Re: Announcement: MapTool 1.5.1 Released

Ok, apologies, I see what is going on now... We have a bug in our "Gather Debug information". Please ignore the "Result of executing 'java -version': as that is a way for us to see what you use when using a jar version, and that executes a native java command using what you have installed for that i...

Re: Announcement: MapTool 1.5.1 Released

@Fullbleed um what? So, the "install" doesn't even come with java.exe or javaw.exe but rather dll's which are/can only be used by MapTool.exe (which is a security thang) so nothing else on your system can technically run a java jar using what we package with MapTool. Running java -version means noth...

Re: Maptools 1.4 "Failed To Launch JVM"

First, you are using a NERPs release and so you need to get help on the NERPs channels. You have set bad memory parameters and that is why it can't start. Go to the NERPS FAQ page and read how to reset the memory settings. https://github.com/JamzTheMan/MapTool/wiki/F.A.Q.! Apparently forums doesn't...

Re: Force Client SelectTokens Initiative Tool

Combined with Wiki: execLink() you can have it execute on other clients.

FYI: The BoT has some UDF's that make this a little easier to execute macros on all clients.

Re: MapTool Development/Release Cycle & Current Version?

I've taken a break over the holidays to do non MapTool related hobbies over the last month or so. I have things in the works though. You can expect a major pull request from me soon (tm) and I think we'll get some things moving again more smoothly this quarter. I've talked about this before all over...

Re: Unicode in macros

Blame windows, java is using the OS file encoding.

With that said, my fork does specify UTF-8 file encoding and future MT releases should as well. Otherwise you have to do it yourself.

Re: TokenTool 2.0

I think I would prefer they communicate via some form of API so they can stay separate but talk to each other. So, if you have TT installed, launch it via the Token Edit window in MT someway, edit the token in TT, then hit save in TT for it to save back to the token? It "may" be possible but surely...

Re: Ability to reset duplicate numbering order

I never use that option but wonder if you changed maps if it would reset? I would think it would need to read all the tokens and get the "highest" number. What should MT do if you had Dragon 2-7 and deleted 3 & 6? Still go to 8? Personally, (and I think most) use the Random instead because, well, ho...

Re: Hard fork into QT

So I've looked over the current latest build and came to the conclusion that building off of JavaFX isn't a very viable solution given that standard is already on the falloff. Looking into QT or unity seems to be the way forward, and given I have some QT experience (having contributed, and worked w...

Re: Phantom Lighting

That does seem familiar and have a few bugs with lighting/vbl/fow with all the changes I've done over the last year or two. I don't have time right now to look into it but hopefully that is fixed in my Fork (which will be merged back eventually). Feel free to test with Nerps and let me know? (link i...

Re: TokenTool 2.0

A few reasons. 1. Because TT can and is used by users for other VTT's. I wasn't going to say, "Here's a great tool but you have to install a our VTT to use it!" 2. MapTool is/was still a Swing application. Swing apps and FX apps run on their own threads. It would require some extra work to just "inc...

Re: 1.4+ Load Times with .exe file

I do run it from the installer. Never noticed the win launcher shortcut. I'll use that and see if it helps. Ya, if you are running it from the installer it's running through all the "install" steps again. I recommend running from the shortcut. This will be changed/removed in future versions. Any id...
