Re: Character Sheet Not Updating & Unexpected Error

Alright, haven't had much time to look over it yet today, but I've already noticed a few things. I've tracked down where the 0=0 is coming from, but I still don't know why it's giving that output. It should be " base=# ", with base having the value from the MeleeFighting variable that was ...

Re: Character Sheet Not Updating & Unexpected Error

Thanks for the responses! I'll give it a thorough look over again tomorrow, keeping an eye out for everything that was mentioned. I'll also replace the guillemets (never knew they were called that) with something else; currently they're in there to label areas of like properties on the token when re...

Character Sheet Not Updating & Unexpected Error - Solved

So I've been doing even more with MapTool, expanding what game systems I'm using it for. I've got a half-complete interactive character sheet macro set for my custom d20 Star Wars and a fully functional interactive character macro set for Dark Heresy (and I have come to realise I hate their abundanc...

Re: Is there a function that activates based on initiative?

Thanks for directing me to that thread! I don't know how I missed it when I was looking for something on this. I'll be taking a good look over it and seeing about implementing that into my campaigns (I don't feel comfortable calling them frameworks yet because they have far too little in them still,...

Is there a function that activates based on initiative?

Been playing around with macros more, for myself and my friends (as they're now coming to me for advice/to do the busywork on making macros), and have run into a circumstance I can't find a command for. Essentially, I was wondering if there is a function, or other command, that will execute when the...

Re: Handling a blank property

I admit this is a simple way of doing it, and there's likely better, but you could do this. Assuming the property names of "initiativeModifier" and "Dexterity", you could do the following: [h,if(initiativeModifier == ""): initMod = EnterInitiativeModifier; initMod = initiativeMod...

Re: Two new benchmarks [h:] or [] and if(): or if(,,)

I must admit I find it interesting that the [wroll]if()[/wroll] roll option is slower than the [wfunc]if()[/wfunc] function, though thinking more on how that would be approached through the coding of them I can see why that is. Definitely something to keep in mind, though since the function does per...

Re: Editable Character Sheet For Token Owners Only

Here's an interesting note on token updates. None of your changes are sent to the other clients until the very end of your macro chain. There are ways to break that chain, like using execLink deferral feature and some of the functions that causes a redraw of the token. When you start modifying a to...

Re: Editable Character Sheet For Token Owners Only

Ah, but what if you decide to release YOUR framework for others to enjoy and they try to merge with other stuff? Well, in that case I would want to change the variable names. It's actually something I'm likely to do (at least changing the names, not as sure about releasing the framework, though if ...

Re: Editable Character Sheet For Token Owners Only

Wait, so all that's meant by alias is the parenthetical display name for a property? I've already been doing that pretty much since I started using MapTool. I thought by alias you were meaning a secondary token with only bare-bones info on it so that when states and such are changed in combat it has...

Re: Editable Character Sheet For Token Owners Only

First off, I have to admit I'm curious as to just what all a framework is. I've inferred that it's a (generally complex) campaign save to be used for running campaigns within those rules-sets, including macros, library tokens, properties, tables, and lots of other cool gadgets and doohickeys, so I w...

Editable Character Sheet For Token Owners Only - Solved

I've been really kicking up the complexity of my macros the last couple weeks, as I find I can do more with them and keep things more streamlined for ease of use to players (I have two people new to gaming in my campaign, so that's of definite consideration) and to speed up combat results. I'm fairl...

Re: Problems starting MapTool in Linux

Welcome to RPTools, Oriet! Thanks! I've actually been using MapTool for a while, and keep doing more and more with it because it's such an excellent program for gaming (especially since most people in my group live in different states). My computer returns the following when inputting "java -v...

the_meek: My boyfriend and I have actually tried that and it didn't work. I mainly use either a backslash in front of the space or putting quotes around it, as both of those work treating the space as a character and not as a space between arguments. Examples: sh Launch\ MapTool.sh sh "Launch M...

Problems starting MapTool in Linux

A while ago I had issues with stack overflow, and during the process of getting that resolved (turns out I had been having way too large of a stack size) I found out I have actually been having issues getting MapTool to start. It doesn't seem to matter which version of MapTool I'm using, either, as ...
