Re: Using MapTool on a Mac OSX machine

Ok, CONTROL+click not working on a Mac is clearly not normal. I did quite an extended search in my Mac's preferences and help and didn't find a way to disable it. Then I searched on the net and it's clearly hard coded into the system. So your friend's Mac has a problem. One issue I found on MacRumo...

Re: Using MapTool on a Mac OSX machine

I tested the CONTROL+click combo again and got the same results. CONTROL+click does the exact same thing as click...It seems, at least on my friends Mac, that the CONTROL key does not simulate a Right Click. I guess I will have to "force" my player to invest in a mouse.

Re: Using MapTool on a Mac OSX machine

I DO use MapTool WITH the right mouse button. I do have a mouse with right button, that is (as I said) fully supported. It is even an apple mouse I think I had to enable the right button in the settings (it is this magic mouse) but I'm not sure about that. I cant imagine working on a computer witho...

Re: Using MapTool on a Mac OSX machine

I'm only using MT on Mac. RightMouse is not encouraged (but supported) Pardon me if I am asking a stupid question but how do you use MT without right button? Most of the campaigns that I create have maps that are larger than one screen so the users need to pan around in them which, as far as I know...

Re: Using MapTool on a Mac OSX machine

Sorry but I was wrong. It's been so long that I use a two buttons mouse that I forgot the right key to be used It's CTRL+click. You're right in saying CMD+click is bringing huge problems. I never used it before, but have similar problems as yours on a regular b89. Hmm...interesting...I will try CTR...

Re: Using MapTool on a Mac OSX machine

If your mouse only has one button, use CMD+click. On Apple's touch pads you use two fingers click to get the right click. Sorry but I didn't try B90 till now. As I wrote in my original post, using the CMD key plus click go me right click action enough to move the map but it did not, for some reason...

Re: Using MapTool on a Mac OSX machine

I'm only using MT on Mac. RightMouse is not encouraged (but supported) .. so on laptop you might have to use a modifier key ([s]i think its ALT, but I would have to test it[/s]EDIT: yes, its CTRL for context menu) You can use any mouse on a mac and you will have usual right-button-support. Anything...

Re: Building MapTool on Mac OSX

As I wrote above, I was able to run my modified MapTool JAR file on the real Mac OSX machine without having to re-compile it. However, when I did I got a number of MapTool issues which I believe are unrelated to my MapTool mods (since they don't appear when I use the same JAR file on PC or Linux). S...

Using MapTool on a Mac OSX machine

Yesterday I tried to use my campaign file on a Mac OSX machine. There were a number of issues when I did this which prevented the campaign file from being used fully. I am going to have to trouble shoot these issues more to identify the source. There are a couple possible sources for the issue: 1. I...

Re: Building MapTool on Mac OSX

If you haven't used java 7 functionality, you should be able to tell Eclipse to compile for a lower version (A project property I believe). Although I cannot remember whether or not b90 can be compiled for 6? Its also worth double checking the number that follows the "major.minor" error. ...

Building MapTool on Mac OSX

I have been using a slightly modified version of MapTool based on MT1.3.90beta. My mods add Plugin Support as well as the option of running in Card Game Mode which modifies the token right click context menu somewhat. These mods work fine on PC and Ubuntu. However one of my players is using Mac OSX ...

Re: All About The Cache

I even specifically wrote in the original post that I do *not* wish to discuss the merits of alternatives (such as an Image Repository) but would like to know about the caching feature. I did read that, but I believe an image repository does exactly what you asked for. It does not have to be hosted...

Re: All About The Cache

So if you want more nimble connections, you could break maps into smaller sections. And while it is somewhat random which map players will connect to, they will only be sent to a map that is "Visible to Players". Seriously? I haven't played much with multiple maps per campaign since I hav...

Re: All About The Cache

Okay...I would the following statement on RPToos Wiki... To create a repository file, open your campaign in MapTool and go to File -> Export -> Campaign Repository File. This will create a zip file that contains the repository information. Unzip the file. (This is very important! MapTool cannot use ...

Re: All About The Cache

So in light of not getting the cache info any time soon Does anyone know how to set up a table that would use images from a local repository (as was suggested by one of the earlier posts) as opposed to images embedded in the campaign file? I'm gathering that tables images are normally embedded in th...
