Re: Call Macros

Yet again, getting a "dice roll value" does not require a macro call, just a line in your existing macro, probably using roll . As for making a macro on any token Open the selected window in MapTool. Left Click the token you wish to create a macro on. Right click in the selected window, an...

Re: Whisper Macros

Any differences between this and lindsay's whispers & handouts user drop in token?

Aside from the whisper user by owned token's name.

Re: Call Macros

A Library token is a token with the name in the format: "Lib:NameOfLibToken"

Calling a "value of my 'weapon' " is not a macro call, but a variable call. Therefore what you are looking for is [wfunc]getProperty[/wfunc] or [wfunc]getLibProperty[/wfunc].

Re: Setting, Finding, and Rolling Skills/Stats with an Searc

Let me try to explain... The variables you store inside your macros have a name, and a value. e.g. [x = 5] x is the name of the variable, and 5 is the value. When you call [x] , 5 is returned. This is the exact same principle as json objects: [jsonName = json.set("","x",5)] x is ...

Re: chkID - how to ?

From a programmer's perspective I doubt that it's possible. It's highly likely that every time the number 00000000262616893867000000000000 is used in a function which is expecting an integer, the number is parsed and the trailing zeros are removed. This is part of MapTool macro language's non declar...

Re: So Much Memory Usage

What steps are you doing to generate this? Is a server running? VBL? Connected client(s)? Version of Java, OS and MapTool version also. Clicking the memory bar in the bottom right of the client clears as much memory as possible which is allocated but not currently being used, does this have an effec...

Re: Script to impersonate?

I assume you're using impersonate to identify which token a player is attacking with?

There are many other ways to do this such as [wfunc]getOwned[/wfunc] combined with [wfunc]getPlayerName[/wfunc]. Once you move to using tokenIDs, your MapTool coding power will grow by many degrees.

Re: Script to impersonate?

Correct. If you're after the chat effect for talking you'll have to simulate it with a formatted html table. If you're after setting the current token (because you don't use the optional parameter tokenID in your functions, e.g. in getProperty ), then you'll need to use token or switchToken . Also s...

So tokens would be databases and the jsons would be the tables. All databases use the same principle, the only difference is the wording and application, not the structure.

Re: [Mote] Tools to make tools

  • A boolean parameter for [wfunc]input[/wfunc] to disable forced focus (if possible).
  • A non-hack onMouseOver event triggered macro.

So, where is it? Previous page in this thread. (Upload links won't work quoted). This is the version I have, which I can't find any so called ware on.
