Re: Question about gridless maps and token sizes

What we need to know: how do we let the user define footprints (probably a GUI that draws a hex grid and let's the user click to toggle a hex being included in a footprint), how do they define the centerpoint of rotation, and how do we handle a rotation that does point to a vertex or the centerpoin...

Re: MapTool 1.4

The bug tracker is another thing... The user whited has been working to clean up the existing bug tracker at SF. Removing stuff that doesn't need to be there and trying to keep things that are useful ideas for 1.4 so we don't lose them forever. I will start another thread on the bug tracker tonight...

Re: Fun with Exponents

I looked at the grammar used by the MT parser and I don't see any specification of precedence so I can't tell. It might be that the order of the items in the file specifies the precedence... I've been reading up on ANTLR lately - how the rules are nested is how the precedence is defined. The MT par...

Re: Parser module broken

The parser module is a bit tricky to build at the moment. There is a grammar file (expression.g I think) that is used with the ANTLR v2 tool to generate the files that you are missing. From what I understand there is an ANTLR v2 eclipse plugin that will allow the project to be built from SVN trunk. ...

Re: MapTool build notes for Eclipse

One git repo per sub-project would probably be better. I haven't researched it much, but I'm betting that anything you want to version independently should have its own source repository. You should read up on the standard Maven versioning, particularly SNAPSHOT builds. If we use SNAPSHOT builds, it...

Re: Chat language toggles

Event hooks do sound like a better way to go. Perhaps some simple sensible default behavior, and allow for overrides to be done by campaign scripts

Re: Chat language toggles

I had been thinking of this too, although my idea didn't include garbling the text. - When you impersonate a token, you get a drop-down box for the languages that the token knows. When you type chat text, it would be flagged with the language selected (eg: select elven and type "hello") - ...

Re: Help a Savage with some regex?

The one that's got me stumped is Toughness. This is represented in most statblocks as follows <snip>Parry: 6; Toughness: 11 (1) Gear: <snip> I'll take a crack at it - I'm kinda new to MapTool, so I'm not sure about the Regex format, but this should work with Java: "Toughness\\:\\s*(\\d+)(?:\\s...

Re: Bugzilla?

Yeah, Trac is definitely a 1 project per trac instance tool. There's really two schools of thought on maintaining a "suite" like rptools. So, I'd would then ask, should we a) get each tool their own repo home and use rptools as the super tool for housing the packaged group as a whole, b) ...

Re: Bugzilla?

Before I start responding I should pipe up with my opinion of Trac vs Mantis: While I like Trac's wiki syntax and simplicity, I think it is too simple for our needs. Mantis allows us to manage separate projects for all the different tools, and specify components and build versions for each, which I ...

Great! I have access to Trac, so I've done some configuring, but I'm only enabled in Mantis as a "reporter", so I don't have the ability to setup projects/components/versions and so forth.

whited, if you have an account at SourceForge.net and care to drop me a PM with your username, I'll add you to the developer list as a "technician" on the MapTool Tracker page(s). This should allow you to enter issues for tracking (which you could do anyway) but also assign those issues t...

Re: Bugzilla?

Trac and Mantis both looked good to me. Trac seemed to have better wiki integration, and Mantis looked like it might be more manageable if we wanted to keep each tool as a distinctly separate project. I personally prefer Trac, but I won't be the only one using it I'll PM my sourceforge userid to you...

Re: Bugzilla?

SourceForge-hosted Trac sounds like the best solution. I'm curious - is it possible to provide permissions to enter/manage issues and wiki pages in Trac without having SCM commit rights? If so, (and if Craig feels like setting it up), I can start collecting some issues and "wait until 1.4"...
