Edit the content file of a .rptok file

Post by Holladerwaldelf »

I would like to change the properties of a token directly in the content.xml file. Is there a guide somewhere that tells me what structure the content.xml file has to have so maptool recognizes everything correctly?

No, but most variables are usually obvious. Your best bet is to look at the token class source file as it's pretty much the streamed content of that class.

Make sure you have a backup of your original file. Apparently, some .zip programs alter the compressions settings to something not compatible with MapTool. 7zip works, though, and can open the .rptok file directly (and manipulate it from the command line).

This might be a stupid question, but where do i find the token class source file?
