Re: Java 8 (no really :)) bugs

Thanks a lot, wolph! Knowing that it's "more than 7 styles in a form" that causes it is helpful. I've created an "UHF", Unofficial HotFix build and linked it from the first post in this thread. Most people won't need it. A few will use frameworks that run into this bug, and that ...

Re: Java 8 (no really :)) bugs

I tested b91 against Java 8. Alas, the patch that's on the 1st page of this thread (July 4th post) didn't make it into b91. b91 will crash with Java 8 under the same conditions b89 did. Oracle has just started replacing Java 7 on user's machines. The next Java CPU will be the last for Java 7. I'm no...

Re: Java 8 (no really :)) bugs

Some more Java 8 testing may be in order. According to m , Java 8 will become the default on java.com before the end of 2014, and auto-migration of people will happen in the first half of 2015. Given that there's only one more Oracle Critical Patch update scheduled for 2014, we may actually see Java...

Re: Lost Mine of Phandelver (5e, with built in framework)

Very cool. I see you lifted the ability check from the framework I cobbled together, and I know that's broken with regards to Expertise. It does "+5" and should do "times 2" in the final rules. I am nowhere near where you are here with my own effort, so I'd rather help with this,...

Re: Will MapTool run on Windows 8?

Seconded. b89, b90 and "b91" (which is a b90 with some extra bugfixes) all run fine on Windows 8 and Windows 8.1.

Which is to be expected. Maptool is a Java application. It'd be very strange (though not entirely unheard of) if it broke on a new version of Windows.

Re: DnD Next (5e) framework, thief edition

Just tried the Dropbox link. "It works here". Anyone else having problems? @JayIbero Veggiesama is a work of art. I don't think I have the coding chops or the attention span to produce something that awesome. That said, this framework will evolve some, because we use it in our campaigns. F...

Re: Unicode in macros

Good question. I tried it and what gets stored is a string of question marks. I believe maptool uses UTF-8 internally. I wouldn't expect this to be fixed in maptool. The maptool devs have been MIA for a while now. I don't expect new features, or even an official "b90" with known bugs fixed...

Re: DnD Next (5e) framework, thief edition

Updated with the last version we used, based on the 10/14/13 playtest packet. Have not checked this against the basic rules that Wizards just released.

Re: D&D 5E framework?

I think you just volunteered . I have something cobbled-together lying around that worked well enough for playing, though it's not a full-blown framework. There was a thread about it here somewhere, which has an old version of it. I can update with the latest iteration we used before we stopped play...

Re: Server has disconnected - .b89 / java ?

>> could not load campaign java.net.ConnectException: Operation timed out >> This error just means "we couldn't connect to your your maptool port because we didn't get a response at all." When this happens, it's not an issue with Java or maptool, it's an issue with basic connectivity. I un...

Did you have a chance to test the applied patches to make sure they work the way they're expected to?

Re: Java 8 (no really :)) bugs

@wolph, I've merged the patches that Lee had created but that weren't already on trunk. The file on dropbox has been updated with a new maptool jar that has those fixes. This stuff needs testing before it's let loose on players! The cone light, the lib tokens, all of it. Your bug tracking thread is ...

Re: Java 8 (no really :)) bugs

I just saw that there is already an available patch for the json.sort issue, which Lee wrote (http://forums.rptools.net/viewtopic.php?f=60&t=23835&start=60). So, wolph, what do you think - hold off on calling my patch a b90-beta build, and look at what other patches are available but had not...

Re: Java 8 (no really :)) bugs

@wolph, that is correct. I replaced the maptool jar file in the ZIP and left everything else as-is. In plain English, I made a small change to avoid a Java 8 stack trace. Previously, the code would step through a list of things (in Java lingo, an "enumeration"), then inside that loop, remo...

Re: Java 8 (no really :)) bugs

I don't know where to get the launcher source, so I took the changed maptool jar, stuck it into wolph's b90 zip, and uploaded it here: m This was built from the current b90 source on SVN, with the one change that's in the patch file I linked on page 1 of this thread: Pull the deletion out of the loo...
