Re: FUDGE dice in MT?

MT has supported [4dF] for ages. I know it worked when I first found MT, which was back in May, b32. I ... did not know this Thanks for pointing that out! For my part, I just started writing my own macros, so it was mostly a learning exercise for my own benefit (but if it's useful to others, why ke...

Re: Official RPTools Color scheme design!!!

White on black annoys me and gives me headaches - especially when switching to other windows with black text on lighter backgrounds (like web pages, or books). Frankly, a default colour scheme is very familiar to many users, which makes it more accessible and reduces the learning curve. When looking...

Re: Macro Code Limit

Also make sure you turn off the Smiley processor (in preferences). I was having strange glitches with macros processing lists inside of FOR loops, which would kind of work, but not produce the output it was supposed to, and get stuck in "impersonate mode" (this was a campaign macro runnin...

Wall of Features: drawings & templates as "stamps"/tokens

So, I was cruising the Wall of Features recently, and noticing that some features still in the list have already been implemented (Macros Set Token Properties). Is the Wall out of date? I just wanted to check before I start voting for things again Also, what's the difference between "VBL attach...

If anyone is interested, I wrote up a macro to do something similar in a more "barebones" fashion without tables, just individual die rolls. That said, those graphical dice are pretty cool. My version currently only outputs the result (total), but it would be easy to use that result to loo...

There are a lot of generalizations, but the message is true regardless of your views. The message might be true (actually I debate that) but delivering the message with a series of obvious untruths is not the way to convince people. Of course it is: Politicians do it all the time. People are not ra...

I unfortunately don't have a lot of time to help out, but I applaud a concerted, organized attempt to document the hyper-active MapTools development. One of the most frustrating aspects of documentation right now, is that even the list of features for various builds is often inaccurate / incomplete....

Thanks for the info. Either my search-fu needs work, or this is so new, I didn't recognize it.

Sounds rather complicated, but now that I know where to look, I can figure it out.

Thanks :-)

Can a macro run another macro or several macros?

I haven't been able to find an answer to my question in the forums thus far, so I'll just ask: Is it possible for a macro to run another macro? I find myself re-using big chunks of code to do separate tasks, but wanting the option to essentially carry out a bunch of macros with one click, if wanted....

Thanks for the suggestions. This does not seem to work // [insert code here] The code runs as normal. Removing the square brackets sort-of works, as long as the code is within an HTML comment (otherwise it is output to the chat window as text). Sounds like a minor feature or bug to be fixed?

Commenting out macro code?

Is there a way to hide sections of macro code, so that they don't run, but without having to delete them? I've seen that you can run sections inside an HTML comment, but that only prevents output - the code still runs. I'm wondering if it's possible to go even further and hide sections of code from ...

That's awesome news :D and a great reason to upgrade from b45.

I admit, I only get frustrated with the undocumented features of MapTool, which is to be expected. But, I am continually impressed at the responsiveness and support of this community, developers and users alike.

Thank-you

I just wanted to toss in my support for using an existing scripting language for macros: I hate having to learn a new scripting language & syntax for a specialized application, and I would hate for the developers to re-invent the wheel for the same thing. I'm a little familiar with javaScript, a...

Moving Macros

I've searched the forums, and am I right in thinking there is no direct way to copy macros between a campaign, global, or token tab? I know I can copy macro buttons from one token to another. Is there a reason why this feature should not be implemented, or is it just that the code hasn't been writte...

The cool things about the Profiler are (a) it's written in javascript so it's easy to see/modify the source code, and (b) it's fairly extensible in terms of adding new sheets. Thanks for the suggestion. I was thinking of building a system in HTML / CSS / javascript. Mostly because that's what I'm f...
