Re: Is it possible to automate some combat results in Maptoo

getInitiativeToken returns the token ID of the token which currently has initiative. A better idea for you, if you use ownership, then you can use getOwned with getPlayerName . This will return the IDs (NOTE PLURAL) of all tokens owned by the person who runs the macro. You'll then need to allow the ...

Re: Is it possible to automate some combat results in Maptoo

I use [wfunc]getInitiativeToken[/wfunc] for the attacker and [wfunc]getSelected[/wfunc] for the defender, but there's a variety of different ways to do it - it's all preference.

Re: Adding labels to maps

So why not ask for b90 the ability to have labels as gm only? :wink: Should be relatively simple to add.

Re: Maptool Text Issue

Seeming as the problem is only on one computer, I can only assume it's a problem localised to that pc. As has already been suggested, language options are a likely cause. I'd be interested to know what the default language is on that computer.

Re: Maptool Data Directory Does Not Exist

In b90 when you make edits in the launcher popup, it should apply these to mt.cfg then launch java with the contents of mt.cfg. # Lines that start with '#' and blank lines are comments and are ignored. # The fields below may appear in any order. # Field names are not case-sensitive but will ...

Re: Strange display issue with mouseover

I had a similar problem a long time ago, it was from using a very outdated version of java.

Re: Upgrading from b86 to b89/90 has given my Framework issu

IIrc, b87/b89 are backwards compatible, but not always forwards compatible. Have you tried dropping in a new token?

Re: [Unsolved] Java memory allocation problem & others

To add more information to this, using the java shortcut path idea that aliasmask had, seems to fix my problem in both versions of java and b89 and b90 of MapTool. So I believe whatever happened, affected the .jar and .bat files, but didn't affect the .ink shortcuts. I have nothing to offer in terms...

Re: Load character into MapTool from outside source

Currently, I have a .net project that my players use to "build" a character. It gives them a text file in the end and a big long json string that they then cut and paste into a Map Tool macro and it uses this json string to load all the relevant maptool properties for the token. This seem...

Re: [Unsolved] Java memory allocation problem & others

Perhaps a firmware upgrade may resolve something. Not likely, it was updated when I changed from ADSL to FTTP (through the same router) in this time. This could be a cause - the FTTP software of the router. The failure to generate this report is just an irritation, as connectivity works flawlessly....

Re: [Unsolved] Java memory allocation problem & others

I think 192.168.1.254:2555 is the discovery address for UPnP on your router and MT is not reaching it. Either it's being blocked or isn't there. Do you use UPnP or port forwarding and what are you using for a router? Port Forwarding, port 51234, BT HomeHub v4. Gather Debug Information always run wh...

Re: Question about fog of war exposure and player sight

That, uh, doesn't do what I'm looking for. I'm looking for a way to make it so she can't see the map at all once she leaves an area. Due to fog of war exposure, while she can't see stuff in the area, she can still see the outline of the dungeon itself, killing a bit of the "maze" atmosphe...

Re: Question about fog of war exposure and player sight

Map -> Vision -> Day

Limit the player's sight using the properties of their token, and use VBL to create lines along walls.
