MapTool 1.5.7 Release Candidate 2 Available

Post by Phergus »

Marching closer to release, MT 1.5.7 rc.2 is available for download now.

Highlights
  • New accessibility features allows the user to apply Perlin noise to tiled textures to reduce obvious patterning.
  • New user preference (Edit -> Preferences -> Application -> Performance) for Max Frame Rate allows users to set a desired Max Frame Rate.
  • More updated macro functions for improved performance and reliability.
  • New GM macro panel for GM only macros. These macros are saved as part of the campaign.
  • Bug fixes!

So question, what has changed between these two RCs? Also how do you access the Perlin feature?

I did download RC1, cause I wanted to play with the playclip function. It does work much better then then stream for my quick sounds, I have used it for traps, when triggered they display a message and play a sound. Now the sounds play each time and now weird noise at the end of the clip.
