What does MapTool 1.4 offer?

Hi, I was a maptool user back in the days of 1.3, and am looking at picking it up again. I have looked through the dev forum and havent been able to figure out what 1.4 offers over 1.3. Is there are comprehensive feature list, or description of differences anyway? Also, I must say, browsing the foru...

Re: MapTools Fork List

All these forks were created because maptools development had stalled, and as I understand it, no-one who was active had access to the website to update the official forks. Things have moved on since then, so these forks are going to get increasingly outdated. But since Mote is finally out in public...

Re: How do I set specific values in the input() function?

Ninja's by Ditto Note that if you use the LIST option [h: chk = input ( "weaponchoice | Weapon1, Weapon2, Weapon3 | Weapon | LIST | SELECT=STRING VALUE=NUMBER" )] You can change the VALUE=NUMBER to VALUE=STRING, and the variable will be saved with the text value of the chosen item. You don...

Re: How do I set specific values in the input() function?

I don't have enough information to know exactly what you're tring to do. It would help to know what the function is for, or to post the code you have already tried. That said, I know one thing that confused me initially when using inputs was the fact that the value returned is not the selected item,...

Re: Weird redraw issue

Aliasmask posted in anotehr thread: It's more likely due to graphics drivers or how java interacts with direct draw. Reinstalling both would probably fix the problem. I was thinking if using an older MT version that's not compatible with java7 would cause issues as well. My issue has persisted acros...

Re: HELP: Terrible Image Glitches when Dragging and Zooming

I don't want to hog the OPs thread in case their problem isn't the same as mine (but i do see graphic glitches like the OPs - it seems like parts of the screen are not being erased, and get drawn multiple times). I've updated the thread I initially reported my issue in, here.

Re: Weird redraw issue

For my own reference: Ctesia posted a possible fix in this thread . If THAT doesn't work do help->show debug info and make sure maptools is actually being loaded with the mem and stack settings you set. I had trouble getting that to work, I had to create a shortcut of the javaw.exe 64 bit executable...

Re: How do you call upon a property in a string value for us

Assuming that "Skills:" at the start isn't part of the property, that looks like a String Property List. Use getStrProp to get the value.

SkillValue = getStrProp(Skills,SkillWanted);
Or
SkillValue = getStrProp(Skills,"Appraise");

Re: HELP: Terrible Image Glitches when Dragging and Zooming

I agree it is strange. I fully expect it's something about my setup, rather than a problem with the launcher, but it's possible someone else has the same issue which is why I mention it.

Re: HELP: Terrible Image Glitches when Dragging and Zooming

Which version of MT are you using, and most importantly, which launcher ? I have an issue that is similar, when I use wolph42's launcher for MT b90. It seems to work for others without issue, so I have no idea what's different about my PC that messes it up. Clyde's alternative launcher listed here w...

Re: What are h:,r:,t: and when do I use colons versus commas

Given that you're already writing macros, I don't think RTFM manual posts are all that helpful. There are a lot of gotchas in maptool scripting, thing it's easy to trip up over, aqnd aren't well-explained anywhere. So I'll attempt to give you some genuine help. [quote="Ctesias"]When do I u...
