Re: Maptool Concepts: The Next UI, Look, and Feel

Um, depends on what you mean. There's not something like VisualBasic's double-click-in-design-mode technique unless you're using an IDE of some kind. As far as Java itself is concerned, a "form" is typically a JDialog and the JDialog must be populated with components. Java provides a way ...

Ints vs Shorts

In java, is it worth using Shorts if you've got lots of integers you know are never going above 256 (like character stats)... I ask because I noticed it means math on them requires casting...

Re: How to act as server but grant GM to a player?

I'm sure this has been explained somewhere, but is there a reason mt asplodes when you let a connected client load a campaign instead? Is it something terribly hard to fix... I'm ready for 1.4 to start so I'm not gonna ask for this to be fixed in 1.3... but there was talk of a headless server for 1....

Re: eBook Readers

most impotantly it can transform the text to a normal text stream that you can read at any size and font. But in all the bebook is much nicer for longer reads. I love it. Only on pdfs that are a) actual text layers, and b) allow coping of text... many ownzed pdfs of game books are scanned as images...

Re: Maptool Concepts: The Next UI, Look, and Feel

So I'm taking something like a 5th shot at teaching myself Java to try and help out... and I'm noticing something odd... If I'm reading this "Thinking In Java" stuff right... one theres not really a way to build a form visually and tie buttons/boxes/whatever to the backend code you've writ...

Re: eBook Readers

The E-Readers don't handle .pdf's very well... No real access to the search function, and pdf's can't resize the "page", so you either have the whole page with text about this big or regular sized text the need to scroll... That said, bat life even under heavy usage is pretty long... and t...

Re: Google Android Discussion

Yep, got a Captivate over the weekend, there are a few of the not-so-smartphone interface I miss of the Solstice, but so far I'm really enjoying it. My old man said there's a pair of apps that replace the android market app (something brain, can't remember right this second) that when include better...

Re: How to get RPTools source via Eclipse and subversion

Okay, I'm trying to get subversion working on helios... I downloaded Eclipse, then downloaded the Subversive-incubation-0.7.9.I20, extracted that into the Eclipse folder, and loaded Eclipse... it asked me to pick a SVN connector... but none of them install correctly...
