Re: Too Many Darn Lists

So, are people interested in storing tabular data on a token, or organizing lists in MapTool 'Tables'? The major differences to me being: That would be ' storing tabular data on a token'. I've already taken the first steps to see how difficult it is and how 'good' it works. Conclusion: 1. Not very ...

Re: Too Many Darn Lists

MapTool tables can hold JSON's as well as tokens and as pointed out, they have pics associated. and as also has been pointed out: its read only AND moreover its insanely cumbersome to create a list even with my excel tool. I agree: the problem is not the capacity or capability of MapTool Tables, bu...

The major differences to me being: > MapTool Tables are very limited in structure (2 columns, one of which is an index), but it can store images. > Tabular data on a token can have more diverse str...

Re: d20 StatBlock Importer: Pathfinder/DnD3/3.5

How do I customize this for my favourite framework? This section assumes you are familiar with working with macros in MapTool (writing, editing, etc.). For help with that, please refer to the excellent RPTools Documentation wiki . The goal of this tool is handle all the parsing for you, producing d...

Re: d20 StatBlock Importer: Pathfinder/DnD3/3.5

Admittedly, I am not a programmer, but what the heck do I do with this thing to make something happen? ... Would it be possible to give a bit of instruction on exactly how and what this macro accomplishes? I'm so sorry for your frustration: I was just thinking I should include some more detailed in...

Re: Too Many Darn Lists

You only need to create the list of tables once and store that on a lib token. Well, the idea is that your available lists will change and grow, so the 'list of lists' should be dynamic .. hopefully the community here will exchange lists. Are you thinking that a macro would store this list index on...

Re: d20 StatBlock Importer: Pathfinder/DnD3/3.5

... I was trying this out and go this error in b70: Undefined function: outputTo Yeah, it's just there for output. The errors are not generated in earlier builds, but it's the generic outputTo function that's been around for a while. I can either add it in, or drop the output messages to chat. I th...

Re: modulo

There's a modulo function included in the Lib:Math token ( or try aliasMask's version for a different set of functions, including modulo. )

Re: d20 StatBlock Importer: Pathfinder/DnD3/3.5

Updated the Lib:Token in the original post . It now contains a UI to assign fields of parsed data to Token Properties. The target properties can be chosen from a list of properties available on a selected token, or entered manually. The mapping can be saved, or temporarily ignored. This property map...

Re: PF statblock importer

I've been customizing the statblock2token macro for my framework and I was wondering if someone knew a way to grab the HP values inside the parenthesis using strfind? That is, if the statblock reads: hp 80 (7d10+42) I'd like to be able to grab the "7d10+42" value. That way I can quickly r...

Re: d20 StatBlock Importer: Pathfinder/DnD3/3.5

I don't have a macro button, its a library token I dragged onto the map, if I go to import, I don't see the macros that are part of the library token If you select the library token in MapTool, you should see all the macros (as buttons) in the "Selected" pane. If that's not visible, try g...

Re: d20 StatBlock Importer: Pathfinder/DnD3/3.5

How do you actually view the macros that are included with the Library token? I see how to run them, but how do I view the code? Right-click on the macro button and select "Edit". That should bring up a dialog with macro settings. You can copy all the code, paste it in your favourite text...

Re: d20 StatBlock Importer: Pathfinder/DnD3/3.5

It makes perfect sense. I don't use a framework, but I do have a lot of custom macros that use properties I have defined and there is of course overlap, in many cases I may have used a different name for the same property. So as I understand it, I can either rename my properties to match the output...

Re: d20 StatBlock Importer: Pathfinder/DnD3/3.5

Does this Macro assume you have created all the appropriate Token properties ahead of time, or does it create them? Depends what you mean by 'create'... Short answer: Token properties are indeed set, but they won't necessarily appear in the statsheet, or the MapTool UI, until they are defined in th...

Re: d20 StatBlock Importer: Pathfinder/DnD3/3.5

the parsed values are stored in a json object, which is passed to a generic "StatBlock: Process" macro: you can just replace the contents of this macro with an 'interpreter' for your favourite framework, and process the values however you want. Ah. That sounds like a good plan. It makes t...
