I also have the "hp Skills and Saves" macro.

Please suggest a better name for this....

This is just a quick link macro for taking damage, healing damage (not via the cure light wounds macro), the skills you have ranks in, Saving Throws and Stat Checks.

If you want to use a skill untrained, "Skills" is actually a link which will bring that up.

And Lastly the Mouse Over stats. I've set it up so that if you are fighting defensively, charging, have combat expertise on, etc that it will add a state to the token AND put something on the mouseover that I can see.

In addition, the mouseover is also based on the character class. It will change based on your classes.

I love how you are using Ash from Evil Dead as a token (phaigo) !!! :mrgreen:
It makes it that much better

Yeah.

That's my test player's token. One of the things I love about maptools is the ability to use pretty much any picture. For the first time use of maptools (no macros, just the tokens and map use), I had Dirk the Daring as a fighter token, and Mad Madam Mim as a Sorceress.

Made some updates recently...

The character token in the top right is a link to center the map on the token and bring it to front. The name is a link to the character sheet.

I love the change on selected. The following changes when I click on a new token.

Still have lots of stuff to work out, but it's my new Action Box.

The colours and styles are borrowed of course....

Wow! For not being a programmer it looks like you did a lot of quality work.

I recommend as a very small tweak to your Action Boxes so the text and checkbox line up better is to put them in their own <td> because the text centers vertically by default.

Let us know when you have your framework worked out. I wouldn't mind taking a look at it myself.

Right now my framework is very incomplete. I'm mainly focusing on Paladin, Bard, Ranger and Monk since that is what is being played in my campaign.

It's also fairly slow going as I typically have to rewrite my macros several times.

Now I just have to learn to document what I'm doing as I'm doing it to make things easier. That and spacing....

I'll try the <td> and see how it goes.

Thanks,
Skester

I steal code. Off the forums, other frameworks and the wiki. :wink:

Thanks AliasMask! Looks a lot better now IMO.

And the lines don't take up as much space, so my players with limited screen size appreciate that.

The D20 is for initiative. :D
I can see it now, the players rolling low several times in a row wanting to change their dice image to see if their luck changes....
