/me walks by Trevor's desk and covertly places the snickers bar by Trev's keyboard then walks away whistling off-key.

Lot of rain here in Austin. :-)

This may be fixed now but I noticed a little oddness when using the arrow keys with the space bar. When ever I hit the space bar the 'tail' showed a point back at the origin point of the keyed movement from the current token location. The distance displayed changed to include this extra distance bac...

Aw come on, it's only one little tab key. :-)

/me holds out a snickers bar from under the troll bridge.

Trevor, I've got a candy bar for the nice developer who adds one little, bitty tab key. :twisted:

And then, of course, all Trevor's friends yell "NO, Don't trust a snickering troll!'

I think either 5 or 0 would work for the drop. The other non-drop key could be the right-click alternative. There are other keys to work with on the num bad as well. When a token is selected, tabbing to switch the select to the next token in the list (shift-tab to reverse) might be a cool way to mov...

Persistant Movement Tail

There was some discussion about approving movement. I invite comments on the following methodology. Check box, like snap to grid, to show last move tail. When the token is selected and the check is on, the last move is shown. As a right click option, allow the DM and owner to reset the token back to...

I was thinking, I could make it so that hitting a direction key automatically picks up the token. You would still have to hit a key to drop it though, but that might be easier than picking it up first. If you do that you might want to make sure the token is on screen. You also might consider allowi...

I tried the num pad movement from my laptop (you have to hit the function key). It worked pretty well but the arrow keys would be nice.

The num pad with the space bar makes for some rapid movement.

Thanks Genie!!!

The new zoom is soooo slick. I downloaded Emryys Type S scout map and had the sucker up with a grid in no time. I don't know why one has a grid size of 57 and the other 33 but with the new tool it was all of 5 seconds to figure it out.

Thanks for a great solution,

Hex maps, facing and custom values on tokens are the three things at the top of my wish list.

Hex and Iso Maps

I suppose I'm the last troll in the world who doesn't know what an iso grid is so I looked around on the net to find out. The developers probably have this nailed alreay but here's an interesting article for the rest of us discussing how do code for hex and iso maps. m This one does a bit better job...

So for now we use images from our own server to populate the documents? Is there going to be a wiki image repository hosted on the rptools site at some point?

Mr. Ice, please check your private messasges. :-)
