Re: Vision Glitch - Maptool 1.7.0

But that's going to reset the FOW for every room on the map. can you please explain what went wrong here so I can avoid this problem in the future? I still don't get why the vision on this token was able to get through solid VBL.

Maptool Makes Gaming Easier

I've been running Maptool to host 3 hour weekly sessions for several months now. We've been using a framework I built for an OSR ruleset, 'Basic Fantasy', and we're playing Dwimmermount. I play in my home office, my kid joins in from his laptop in another part of the house and I've got 3 other frien...

Re: Maptool 1.4.1.8 and vision problems

I'm using 1.5.6 and am running into the same problem. As soon as I start a new session, the revealed FoW goes away and my PCs are back to an unrevealed map.

Re: Connection Problems

Another experiment result: running the server from the desktop, so far at least, appears much more stable. No dropped connections so far, so this looks like the laptop device is at fault. Must be some windows setting.

Connection Problems

My son and I are using Maptool a lot, where I host a server and he connects. He is constantly losing his connection. He'll be on for a few minutes, maybe as many as ten, then click! He's dropped again. It's pretty frustrating because we're doing a face to face game; there's no connectivity on the in...
