Re: How do I fix a java.net.unknownhostexception.

In case someone comes by this error, I had a player unable to connect with this error. She was on our chat, but on her laptop. Turns out her wifi was turned off on her desktop :-). All good after she turned that back on.

Re: Square Vision/ Grid Vision

just a follow up
If you set

Code: Select all

Darkvision: grid r60#000000 
you will get 5e darkvision and works correctly with light sources.

Re: Square Vision/ Grid Vision

I got this to work. Setting Grid Vision by itself does nothing. However, if you go into campaign properties and go to the Sight tab and set Normal: grid scale and then go over to the Light tab and set Torch - 20: grid 20 40#000000 Then you get something like this for a torch. torch.jpg I haven't qui...

Square Vision/ Grid Vision

Back in the day, we had "blocky" vision, but I can't seem to find that anywhere. Under a token's "Has Sight" option, there is a feature called "Grid Vision" and a feature called "Square Vision", but neither seem to have any effect, and I only get the circular exposure. "Conic Vision" immediately cha...

Re: Back in the Saddle

I do got the skills, I actually built my table 15 years ago. The monitors I was looking to fit in the hole was around $200, and would be able to remove it after games. But do know a tv behind glass can create weird artifacts at different angles, so why I liked the projector idea. I was thinking wit...

Re: Back in the Saddle

I should add, this setup is most definitely a compromise. Inserting a TV into a custom table would be the ideal setup. You'd need a thin sheet of lexan or other clear material to protect the screen. That would distort the view some, but the image would overall be better than a projected image. Also,...

Re: Back in the Saddle

That works well! Using a whiteboard as a screen? Yes. A reflective surface can produce too much glare in the dark (like for watching movies) but with the ambient lighting needed at a game table, it has worked well, making the image brighter. The surface can be scratched easily though, so be careful...

Back in the Saddle

After running largely theatre-of-the-mind games for a while, I decided to splurge on another projector. I forgot to take photos of the last session :-( but here's a few after I got the table set up.(Minion included)

Re: Command line to launch MT, open campaign, start server?

Any effort been made for this? Would love to drop a shell script or batch file to start this up. Not that it's all that difficult, but I have both a gm server instance and a player client instance to load and during a campaign, for me, it's the same file/server/etc.
