Re: ParserTool

Yea, I did the exact same thing using token tool. Although I got distracted...Oh shiny! It was nice, def better than swing and using scenebuilder much nicer than abilie forms... Oh? Does Token tool use JavaFX already? I don't see it in the current (master) build... Also, Art, like Fire, is both use...

Re: ParserTool

I am not sure what you are trying to accomplish, so forgive me if I say something stupid. If your goal is to run various test cases on the Parser... why not just add JUnit test cases to the Parser repo? I am assuming that a) there are no tests(I have not checked) or b) they don't all do what you wh...

Re: Building with Ant

What does dice tool offer that countless other choices don't? (honest question) I roll all real dice so never use em but if I did need one, I think I would just download an android app or an online app, especially one with graphics/3d dice. If I were playing online, I'd want my dice in chat so the ...

Re: Building with Ant

There are the other "tools" but I'm not sure how much the others get used. TokenTool is still popular but the others haven't had active development in years... I proposed that we combined rplib into MapTool repo as a sub project and roll most of the tokentool functionality into MapTool (a...

Re: ParserTool

I assume your gradle+javafx woes are in relation to deployment? Yeah. The default 'application' packaging works like a charm, I had zero issues with just straight up JavaFX development in IntelliJ. Deployment/Building w. gradle was very weird though. I'm not actually sure the jfx or the javafx grad...

Re: Trying to gauge interest in new battlemap-making softwar

I'm not an animator. Power to all the animators who used Flash/Macromedia (I hear it was better then) to crank out animations quickly. My personal opinion is that it got asked to do way more than it should have been asked to do...and its runaway success as a cheap popular platform for building inter...

Re: Trying to gauge interest in new battlemap-making softwar

if somebody can explain what it runs on... Mac OS X and Windows (probably XP through Win 10) But I suspect you meant what it was created with. Adobe Director . You've heard of Adobe? They make great stuff like Photoshop, After Effects, Illustrator, Premiere... Ah. Yes, I am familiar with them, not ...

Re: Trying to gauge interest in new battlemap-making softwar

I figured that part out, what I don't know is if the program is junk (relies on some obscure runtime nobody uses) or if its jusy lazy devs. I see msvcrt and something called a dxr, which I've never seen before. To me that sounds like it was created with some questionable quality toolkit that only ex...

Re: Trying to gauge interest in new battlemap-making softwar

Yes, I'd thought of non-wall usage of masks, and I think the opportunities are tremendous. Forget about just providing a "replacement" for Dundjinni, this could conceivably eclipse DJ. And I hope that doesn't come across as pretentious or boastful. I just see so much possibility here! Mas...

Re: ParserTool

New post, as its pretty different from my previous reply - I've started on this. I went down the route of JavaFX for the gui bit - I don't mind JavaFx, but a couple things: ⋅  The CSS support in JavaFX isn't totally there. If you're used to CSS3 or CSS4, this is more like CSS1 with java-sp...

Re: Building with Ant

Sure, if I do gradle changes I'd want to do them to the dev branch...just a heads up that the PR I have won't be going to any dev branch because there isn't one. ...not sure yet but I get the suspicion that you forget there is more than just maptool in your arsenal...you have something like 10 diffe...

Re: ParserTool

Does that deprecate the macro language entirely then? Even if you move entirely to JavaScript you still are going to see advantages to a macro DSL (domain specific langauge) over a 'pure' javascript implementation - I don't particularly care if you implement the macro language on top of ANTLR or Jav...

Testing data.

So one thing this project lacks I think is test data. I don't mean test *cases*, I mean, more fundamentally, user-story tests. Like, load this file here, this thing should come out the other end when I click this, type tests. This is sort-of a documentation task, but its actually documentation, test...

Maptool build notes for IntelliJ

None! As long as you build and pull from git, in this order:

[*] rplib
[*] dicelib
[*] maptool
[*] dicetool

Make sure when you build, that you use the gradle install target. IntelliJ should handle everything else.

Re: Hosted Java Docs

I mean, honestly, if you really want good documentation it should be provided by the developer on the source control itself, or at least at a high-level in terms of org charts etc...there's not a lot of benefit readthedocs can do here... Don't get me wrong that's nice for python documentation, but i...
