Can't place new tokens, just replaces the first token...

Post by SpeedyBanana »

I know this problem has been brought up before, but I haven't been able to find a solution.

When you place a token, everything works fine, but any token you try to place after the first won't work, it just re-place the first token you placed.

Is there a fix for this? If not this kind of makes the program pretty much unusable no? I mean... you can't place any tokens.........

Sounds like you're using the wrong MapTool version. There is b88 which is marked as broken that does this.

I just noticed that now when I went to download a different version to see if that may fix the problem. I don't remember seeing the message about b88 being broken when I first downloaded it a few weeks ago. Is that something recent?

Did you download from the rptools site? The filename ends with "broken_do_not_use".
But many people run into that trap, I agree that it could/should be marked way better or removed.
Its a common source for confusion.

Lets hope the next version will come soon.
