That's exactly what I'm hoping.

  • Setting Up a New Character Token
    1: Drag a new token onto the Map
    2: Change its Properties Type to "HM_PC"
    • Double Click Token
    • config tab
    • Properties drop down
    • Select "HM_PC"
I can't do that step because "HM_PC" won't show up for some reason. Obviously I'm not doing something that needs doing.

Loading Framework
1: Download Maptool version 1.3b68 or higher.
2: Download the Campaign File above.
3: Run On windows run MaptoolLauncher.exe Make sure the memory is set for 512, 64, 2.
4: Once maptool has opened go to click File->Open in the menu.
5: Navigate to where you saved the framework campaign file and Open it.


I added this little blurb on how to open a campaign file. Once you do this you should be able to follow the other instructions. Let me know if you still need help.

Ok guys I posted an update.


Updates
Links to edit skill values on the character PC sheets.
Totally new method of inputting NPCs. It can now import statblock text that you paste in.
Some little tweaks to the inventory library

If your trying to update an existing campaign with just the updates:
Copy in the new lib tokens. (Right Click and save them from the template. Rename old ones in your campaign. Drag them into your campaign.)
The NPC campiagn macros have changed might as well export that group and import them into your existing campaign.
HM_NPC needs an additional variable StatBlock.

I tried that first as it seemed obvious. I even tried re-downloading the file and re-installing maptool. Perhaps I need to completely remove maptool then install it yet again.

v1.66

Another Update.

I tweaked the parsing to be able to pick up more stuff from some of kenzerco's module statblocks.

I also fixed a bug: if the creature being pulled in didn't have a damage modifier it would break the macro. Now this shouldn't be a problem.

I added mage/thief and fighter/thief to the PC classes. It should let you select them on the PC setup. It should also calculated their level based combat modifiers.

Yep. A clean install fixed it so I can try out your framework and finally get around to learning maptool while I'm at it.

v1.71 Posted

Fixes/Changes:

* ResetWeapon - If you are offensively dual wielding it will reset both weapons, adding the second if necessary. If you aren't dual wielding it will reset your weapon, removing the second attack if necessary.
* CombatCalc for magic weapons
* Attack and Defense Roll tooltips
* PC Attack and Defense macros now check property type not token type. So you shouldn't get those ShieldUse questions if you've got a NPC token type with a HM_PC property type impersonated.
* If you roll an init of 0 or 1 your token starts with its info set at "Primary Attack" instead of "Surprised".

v1.75 Posted

Fixes:
[*]Damage Macros didn't like if you had a zero for your second damage die. This has been fixed for PC's & NPC's

Changes\Additions:
[*]In the UpdateInitCount dialog the modify radio button now sets the token's count to the entered value + tracker current count. It used to set the token's count to entered value + token current count.
[*]In the UpdateInitCount dialog, I added a button next to the Info field. If you press the button it will display several predefined strings to chose from. Select a string and press record and you will see it is now entered in the Info field of the dialog. Note: the change is still not submitted until you record the changes with the record button.

Affected:
"Lib:HackMaster" was changed.
"Lib:HackMaster_NPC" was changed.
"Lib:Hackmaster_Init" was changed.
Commented out code that got left in b73 was removed from the NPC damage campaign macro.
