Known bugs and issues:

Known bugs:
*Ignoring specific amounts of armour currently will not eliminate bonuses from shields. (only relevant for heroes)
*A deck item and an objective room item are both called "Enchanted Shield", but with totally different effects. One will have to be renamed for both to function.
*If a Witch Hunter has more than 6 amulets, doubles will start behaving strangely.

Not yet implemented:
*It is currently impossible to gain weapon benefits from two separate weapons at the same time
*Deathsword not currently implemented (as its effects are "per turn" and not per attack)
*The Armour of Fortune assumes manual handling ATM
*Gauntlet of Damzhar is not currently implemented (as it should stack with weapons)
*Special Ammunition (such as the Arrows of Death) (as these should stack with the weapon)
*Orb of Might
*Shield of Deliverance
*The Shaman Spells "Robe of Fire" and "Fiery Shield" ought to be implemented at the damage level, but are not yet.
*Book of Arcane Knowledge (must currently be handled manually)
*While the Brooch of Power is fully-functional, it is not integrated into the "Cast Spell" macro, and so power must be drawn out before spellcasting.
*Rune of Death (must currently be handled manually)
*Crown of Sorcery
*Talisman of Obsidian (must currently be handled manually)
*Tablet of Adain
*Bane Sword (double damage must be applied manually before assigning damage)
*Any element of weapons which limits their use (1 attack/turn, may only be used once per adventure, Dragon Sword, etc.)
*Hellfire sword
*Armour of Dargan (to hit penalty must be handled manually)
*Spelleater Rune
*The damage caused from 1's and 2's must be removed manually when a warrior is using Elven Armour.
*Objective Room Treasure "Enchanted Shield" (due to naming issue)
*Reload has not yet been integrated into the equipment macro (though it has a functioning macro)
*The "use amulet" macro has not yet been integrated into the Equipment macro (though it has a functioning macro)
*Elf Helm has not yet been integrated into the damage macro (though it has a functioning macro)

Other comments:
*In "Deck Mode", the Event Deck currently shuffles monsters seperately from events, and uses probability to determine which to select; one part of the deck (events or monsters) might therefore run out much earlier than the other part.
*Depending on party size, Squig Hunters may come at a different ratio than expected. For example, it is possible to see "2 squigs, 3 hunters". When this happens, it is because of fractions; in the example given, "3 squigs, 6 hunters" was rolled, but if there are only 2/4 heroes, it will produce "1.5 squigs, 3 hunters", where the 1½ squigs rounds up to 2. In these circumstances, you can use the values as given, or you can simply round the hunters up to match the number of squigs.
*When the Sword of Destruction is "drawn" (equipped), it will not automatically nullify other magic items. This must all be handled manually.
*All special/magical shields can be equipped as normal shields, and give a T bonus of +1 if not otherwise indicated. All magical helmets can be equipped as normal helmets, and give a T bonus of +1 if not otherwise indicated.


I've got three projects in the works next (in no particular order):
1. Support for shop locations
2. A GM-focused inventory manager which allows for the easy adding/removal of items to a character.
3. Support for unusual spell effects

I'm new to rptools, but I've been playing WQ for almost 20 years. I pretty much have all the warrior packs, including some of the non-box ones. (my favorite is the dwarven brewmaster!) I'm also a programmer and was interested in starting my own framework of this to adapt it so more than just 4 people can play. Now that I've exposed most of my local friends to the game, I thought it might be easier to use this instead of the box stuff, so it lasts longer.

I'd be more than willing to join a game to see how it plays on the system.

Funny you should ask. After not using this for over half a year, a friend and I just started it up last night.

I'd love to have you join up and try it out some time.

1.3 is done.

*Fixed a bug that didn't note the number of fire arrows purchased at the fletcher
*Fixed bug in settlement events that was hiding one event
*Enchanted shield workaround implemented
*Fixed apostrophe-related Deathstone bug
*Fixed bug in Footprints macro which was giving away details
*Fixed Lucky Charm bug which was revealing a variable
*Fixed bug in Heal-Itt potion
*Corrected a few minor typos
*Adjusted a few monster tokens to no longer be top-down
*Fixed bug in damage macro which assumed everyone had a fur cloak

*Most elements of weapons which limits their use (1 attack/turn, Dragon Sword, etc.); [I think 1/adventure weapons work now?]
*Hellfire sword
*Armour of Dargan (to hit penalty must be handled manually)
*Spelleater Rune
*The damage caused from 1's and 2's must be removed manually when a warrior is using Elven Armour.
*Reload has not yet been integrated into the equipment macro
*The "use amulet" macro has not yet been integrated into the Equipment macro
*Orb of Might and Shield of Deliverance are not yet handled by the selling macro.
*Charms of learning are not yet incorporated into leveling macros.
*Pit Armour cannot yet be sold through the selling feature.
*The armour-destroying element of the Obsidian Blade must currently be handled manually.
*Bracelet of Ashain must currently be handled manually.
*Changing of Wizard Spells must currently be handled manually.
*Wizard's Guild Potions have not been coded as items yet.

Other:
*In "Deck Mode", the Event Deck currently shuffles monsters seperately from events, and uses probability to determine which to select; one part of the deck (events or monsters) might therefore run out much earlier than the other part.

*When the Sword of Destruction is "drawn" (equipped), it will not automatically nullify other magic items. This must all be handled manually.
*All special/magical shields can be equipped as normal shields, and give a T bonus of +1 if not otherwise indicated. All magical helmets can be equipped as normal helmets, and give a T bonus of +1 if not otherwise indicated.
*There are two different items called "Enchanted Shield", with different properties. The Objective Room Treasure item has been renamed "Runic Shield".
*"Boots of Swiftness" have different values in the book and in the treasure deck. I've adopted the deck value (500).
*You cannot equip most items with a plural status at the moment. So if you get two dragonhelms, it should be registered as "Dragonhelm (2)", not "Dragonhelms (2)".
*Because the Wizard's Guild "Potion of Strength" and "Potion of Toughness" are different than the treasure forms of these potions, the Wizard Guild potions have been renamed "Potion of Lesser Strength" and "Potion of Lesser Toughness".


Not sure what's on the block next; I'm going to continue to work towards broader implementation.

Is the framework something you can show with a few screen shots? If so can you post them here so folks can take a look?

Apart from the tiles, which look quite similar to the game tiles, there really isn't much to see.

It's mostly a matter of what things do.

My goal has been (and continues to be) simply to try to automate as much as I can out of the boardgame.

However, if there's some particular feature or macro you'd like to see a screenshot of in action, let me know and I'll be happy to oblige.

I'm looking for a variety of screens shots from a lot of different games. The goal is to show MapTool flexibility.

Feel free to send any screenshots to [email protected] or point me to them on the forums.

Cheers,

I would love to a) play with you, and b) get a copy of whatever macros and the like I can while playing. I am never able to get together with my friends to play my physical copy of this, so being able to play online would greatly improve my chances of having a hero reach level 10. :-D

Re: Warhammer Quest Framework (1.4)

Post by wolph42 »

again Im curious what you made of it, can you pm me a link to a copy?

tip:
1. get dropbox (I can invite you for an extra 250 Mb, just pm me with your email),
2. create an universal name for the framework (without version number)
3. dump that in the public folder and copy link location (right mouse click)
4. goto bit.ly
5. paste link and retrieve link
6. pm that link to any requests you get.

The advantages:
- You can track the downloads and even from where they're initiated, so if e.g. you'll notice a sudden peak comming from e.g. email, you might want to destroy the link (or not?), you also get to see from what countries the downloads are.
- As long as you keep the same name of the file, you can just replace the file in the public folder and you don't need to update the link.
