Re: Sad Day...

For us, hacking code is part of the fun, but I understand that some folks just want to have a pre-made tool and not have to worry about tinkering. *shrugs* That's why there are choices. I'm all about hacking and roll-your-own - the rig I'm typing this on is custom built. I'd eventually like to run ...

Re: JavaFX Android Port

Been (am still) sick. Got android + java building together in same project, still trying to figure out how to tie the same code base to both projects. EDIT: Good news! It builds an apk and I can install it on android. I can also run/package the app fork desktop. Bad news - I get a screen full o' bla...

Re: The MacroPolicebox: Second Regeneration (D&D 4E Framewor

Forgive me for asking a stupid question in here - is there a way to tag these threads as to-read? I wanted to keep a list of threads that I watch - but it appears they will only show up under "view your posts" if I comment on the thread itself.

Re: Timing issue in macro

Interesting.

There probably needs to be more concurrency testing of execution in the program.

Just a quick bump - I haven't gone anywhere, I was working on something different this weekend.

Re: Where did it all go?!?

When you really want it to stick around it goes sizzle like a bad spell


Simple economics - the free stuff doesn't make money, servers do, free stuff disappears (when the money for their servers disappears).

Re: Sad Day...

Personally, I think the best thing would be to redo how we save campaigns (we've discussed this before) and create an environment that lets people share each individual macro/campaign setting (like states, lights etc) and such so you don't have to commit to a whole framework. Sounds like a task. A ...

Re: Sad Day...

So, as far as I'm concerned, while it might be nice to have a simple "Ctrl-LeftClick" targeting option in MT for users that don't want to learn MT's MacroScript, there would be mass revolt if you tried to "prune" the program to that level of simplicity. Why do people seem to ass...

Re: Sad Day...

Lots of people have a similar experience when they first try an use Maptool. Was this his/your first use? Sometimes people try and jump into using too much of the functionality in one go and can't make it work without creating headaches. This is why I always recommend people start out using Maptool...

JavaFX Android Port

So, I'm gonna try and get the android JavaFX stuff working today. Not for Maptool/Dicetool/Tokentool, mind, just for my Parsetool atm. Build actually looks pretty simple - yeah, sure you need 3 SDKs, that's not really much different to how JavaFX used to be (2 SDKs and separate packaging tools). Aft...

Re: Building with Ant

There are the other "tools" but I'm not sure how much the others get used. TokenTool is still popular but the others haven't had active development in years... I proposed that we combined rplib into MapTool repo as a sub project and roll most of the tokentool functionality into MapTool (a...

Re: ParserTool

Initial version is done: m Very, very basic implementation, but it uses JavaFX, it packages deb/rpm/exe/dmg (although I've not been able to test the later two), and it provides a REPL (with variable support!) for parselib. There's a lot of missing stuff (better History support), a headless mode of s...

Re: Building with Ant

the PROCESS which is still quick darn convoluted(I have not done, only tried to understand from reading). Challenge. Accepted. Lol. It can't be as hard as building a graphics driver or the linux kernel. I've tussled with some ugly builds before (probably doing some naive builds - try to get perl on...

Re: Building with Ant

the port to android stuff is STILL fairly garbage even 4 years later unfortunately. Do you mean that JavaFX stuff doesn't work well period on Android? I think any framework is going to have that issue on Android, whether you use Cordova, or Titanium, or try to target it with JavaFX or something...a...

Re: ParserTool

FYI, I found the jfx plugin 'bug' - I have openjdk and jdk installed...most considerate plugins try to use the jdk they've been told to use, gradle-jfx does the dumb thing and assumes 'java' is the java you want it to run with. Case in point, OpenJDK doesn't have JFX, JDK does, compiles and runs fin...
