Re: MapTool 1.3 Final, patch03 (build 86)

So my group hasn't updated in a while - is it worth it for us to move from b77 to this build? b77 has been very stable for us, after a bit of problems with our previous upgrade attempt, anytime I mention upgrading again, I get lots of grumbles.

Re: Simple Catch Phrases and standard action Macro(s)

thanks alias. I wasn't even close, as I thought I had to be doing more with json specific commands. And as for my little tantrum earlier - I do understand why the macro language is the way that it is. It doesn't make me like it any better, but I can forgive it since MT isn't a commercial product. I'...

Re: Simple Catch Phrases and standard action Macro(s)

So I got this working: [H: speeches = getSpeechNames("json")] [H: numSpeeches = json.length(speeches)] [H: speechID = 0] [h: input( "speechID | 0 | Speech No:")] [R, if(numSpeeches > 0): randomSpeech = getSpeech(json.get(speeches,speechID))] But what I'd like it to do is give me ...

Re: Simple Catch Phrases and standard action Macro(s)

I'm getting really frustrated with this. MT's macro language is such an unorganized mish-mash of various other things, I wind up getting pissed off every time I try to deal with anything beyond simple die rolls.

Re: Simple Catch Phrases and standard action Macro(s)

I don't want to use a centralized token - which is why I'm writing something instead of using one of the excellent resources like the Canned Speech or Message Manager tokens. In addition to using this macro for my NPCs, I want to offer it to my players so they can use it for their characters as well.

That may be the problem - I'm using b77 still.

Re: Simple Catch Phrases and standard action Macro(s)

I figured out I can use getSpeech, getSpeechName, and saySpeech to store and build my list of canned speeches. That definitely makes things easier.

aliasmask - thanks, I tried to look at your token to see what you did, but it won't open. I posted the error I got in your thread.

Simple Catch Phrases and standard action Macro(s)

I'm trying to create some simple macros with stock catchphrases or actions that I can attach to NPC tokens. This is for stuff that NPCs say or do often, like Robin saying "Holy Smokes, Batman", or Gary Coleman's "Watch you talking about Willis?", or Duncan McLeod removing another...

Re: Troubleshooting some network issues.

I know - I was so pissed at myself when I found it I had to laugh myself. All my years of hardware trouble shooting and electronics experience, I should have realized it was there in the first few troubleshooting steps I took. (It must've been a router since a switch would not have been blocking pac...

Re: Troubleshooting some network issues.

Thanks for the suggestions. Turns out I didn't need them - forgot to get back here and post what I found. Turns out I had forgotten about putting in a network switch while installing another cable run for a Roku settop box long ago. That switch had fallen down behind the desk, and was connected to t...

Troubleshooting some network issues.

Posting this here, because I'm not even really sure where to begin to look for help. Here's the situation - I have an older HP desktop that I've been using as my primary MT PC. It also acts as a kind of "server" for my various game related documents, our family photos, music collection, et...

Re: MT "broke" my macros - best way to fix.

Awesome. I hoped it was that easy of a fix for me. I just updated my laptop to b77, and it worked fine for me again.

Appreciate the insight.

MT "broke" my macros - best way to fix.

My group had been running on 1.3b63 or 65 for a long while, using a WFRP framework from emirkol that I modified. About 4-5 sessions ago, we finally upgraded to 1.3b75, and it ran fine for a few sessions with no apparent problems. Last session, we had our first combat in awhile, and I discovered that...
