MapTool 1.3 Final, patch05 (build 88)

Post by Azhrei »

It's finally here!! This is the OMGIBMSTLR build! (The "Oh my god, it's been months since the last release" build. ;))

I've finally had some time to put together a build. The ZIP and DMG files have been uploaded.

There is a laundry list of things that have been updated or changed, so check the wiki's ChangeLog page for details.

This build should work on Java 7 (this is likely the largest change) and the UPNP library for port forwarding should be functioning again as well.

Try it out and post your results here!

I noticed that there is a "Backup registry" script for Windows users. I would appreciate if someone who uses Windows could create a similar script for deleting all MapTool entries in the registry. We sometimes get posts from people who want to completely uninstall MapTool and the registry editing is a sticky point. At some point we may add a menu option for it, but until then...

Thanks for finding the time to finalize this on your busy schedule, Frank!

Make a reg file with this as the contents:

Code: Select all

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[-HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\JavaSoft\Prefs\/Map/Tool]

I called mine mtclear.reg. This removes the MapTool folder from registry. Same can be done with token tool.

Thanks, exactly what I was looking for. :)

Does that first line that starts with "Windows ..." have to be the first line in the file? I'm guessing it does, as some kind of "file type check"...?

I've added Remove MapTool Registry Entries.reg to the ZIP file and have uploaded a new version. Thanks. :)

Yeah, that or REGEDIT4 for pre XP systems, I think. I didn't test the REGEDIT4 line on my system, but I know the line has to be there (I tried it without).

Strange that you say this build should work on Java 7 and citing it as a big change, because b87 worked just fine for me on Java 7. Now, however, it will no longer launch, I've reinstalled Java 7 and I've tried launching with both 32-bit and 64-bit versions. No dice.

b87 still launches fine.

I get the same error as Daeger on ArchLinux with most recent upgrades and Java 1.7.0_03-b04. After I acknowledge the error the MapTool splash screen just sits there until I kill it. Still have to try my Arch 64-bit system and Windows 7 64-bit system.

Are you guys sure you got the latest rplib*.jar? There was a fix added to help people in other countries with the paint swatch thingy, and it's possible that if you have the old version or rplib, it MT won't work(and based upon the error, I rather doubt it has anything to do with Java version....)
I save all my Campaign Files to DropBox. Not only can I access a campaign file from pretty much any OS that will run Maptool(Win,OSX, linux), but each file is versioned, so if something goes crazy wild, I can always roll back to a previous version of the same file.

Get your Dropbox 2GB via my referral link, and as a bonus, I get an extra 250 MB of space. Even if you don't don't use my link, I still enthusiastically recommend Dropbox..

Thanks for the new Build. It runs very well on my 64bit Windows7 System.

It won't launch for me either, and I'm using Java 6, on Windows 7. b86 works just fine. When I go to launch it, the MapTool Launcher Settings pop up just fine, but when I click OK nothing happens.
